Outdoor dining at its best. Beautiful view with spaced out tables providing privacy and covid distancing. The staff went over and above to meet our needs and wants.

The outdoor setting is pleasant, makes for a nice evening. Restaurant offers heaters but we did not need on such a lovely night. As one expects from the luxury Four Seasons, cocktails are a bit more expensive than other restaurants yet the pour is more substantial. The wine list is very good and offers some worthy wines at a reasonable price. The sashimi is fresh and flavorful, good portion size. The specialty rolls are really good. Sadly, no ama ebi, no green lip mussel and no big eye tuna. There tuna platter is exceptional. Depending on the server you get, some are very, very good while others not exactly worthy of a 20% tip - but nice and apologetic when you have to continually remind him.

All around fantastic dining experience last Saturday night. The ambiance is wonderful, and the meal was equally impressive. The shishito pepper and edamame appetizers are very generously portioned and probably more suited for 4 since the 2 of us were mostly full by the time we got finished with them! We got a bottle of 720 ml Yumeakari sake, a junmai ginjo which was clean and had a nice sweetness to it.
For dinner, we got the bluefin tuna platter and sashimi omakase, along with a side of uni. It goes without saying that all was fantastic. Sashimi platter had 8 large pieces of red snapper (medai), salmon, chuu-toro (one of the bluefin) and hamachi. Nice thick, huge pieces. The tuna platter had maguro, chuu-toro, Oo-toro, and a tuna cut roll. Being a vulnerable species, we of course felt guilty eating it but we didn't want to waste it because it was already there so we rationalized ordering it. If that helps.
Dessert was a large scoop of shiso ice cream with strawberries marinated in sake. We love shiso and after many trips to Japan, this was the first time we've ever encountered it in ice cream. What a treat. It's very fragrant and somewhat herbal so you might want to reconsider if you are not sure if you like the taste of shiso. It was quite unusual in ice cream because we are used to eating it with fish in sushi but it was refreshing, sweet, and cleansed the palate.
As I said in another review of Coin and Candor, we will be back. The Four Seasons hit it out of the park with their 2 restaurants. And thanks to our waiter Zach for helping make this a memorable experience.

Patio dining is lovely, overlooks the hotels beautiful grounds. The table and chairs are clean and comfortable, and patio heaters are available as necessary. There is a limited staff, but they manage to be attentive to all tables. The quality of the fish is excellent. The portions are nicely sized. The restaurant serves wine, beer and cocktails. While a cocktail menu is not provided, you can ask and be accommodated. There is a wine and saki by the bottle list as well as by-the-glass options. The staff will help guide you through the saki selections, just let them know your taste preferences. The tuna platter is excellent, a favorite. We also love the specialty cut rolls and spicy tuna handrail. Uni lovers will not be disappointed. Only wish amaebi were available here. There is a skirt steak on the menu for those that are not into the sushi sashimi fare. Overall, a lovely dining experience especially now during Covid limitations.

Food is ok! I was disappointed at this place.
Ordered sushi and it was served and next table and was set down on their table and the other table not their order, and it was given to us! Once it was set down and the other table mentioned they didn’t order
I’m glad I’m allergic to avocado and the sushi had avocado and that’s the only reason they remake the sushi.

Also one of the sushi had a moving bug, no sorry or anything. The sushi was replace but the stare from the manager and server was like ok! They don’t seem concern at all.
Due to bad experience eating at this place,
The only thing I would highly recommend this place is dessert.

Go get sushi some other place there are so many excellent sushi place in LA

Had to wait long time for service to arrive

Had to wait a long time for a draft beer to arrive from Coin and Candor

What i ordered was AMAZING food

I didn’t order sashinto peppers but they arrived and were terrific so, i kept them

I didn’t order 2nd order of Edamame and didn’t order second order of Calif Roll handout, told waiter.

Bottom line, I appreciate u trying to re open and comply to Covid protocol

Food was amazing, service not there yet

Thanks for asking, best of luck moving forward!

Amidst the Covid crisis, and all restrictions that come with it, we had a supremely enjoyable here. Outdoor seating was spacious, view was pleasant, the food was the star of the show.
We had the special “white” salmon. A first for us. It was described perfectly by the waiter as balanced, smooth, and ultimately delicious.

Nothing special food mediocre and actually sushi fish not all edible. Very chewy and felt like grocery store cut than fine dining or sushi restaurant. Scored points for fresh wasabi grated at the table per request only otherwise not even offered. Janos chi was not edible neither was their yellowtail. Lacking ambiance and quality of ingredients the restaurant had prior to their remodel

My boyfriend and I visited on Valentines Day & to celebrate my birthday. There was a pre fixe menu that was not advertised anywhere despite the other hotel restaurants listing theirs so we anticipated the normal dinner which looked great. Upon being seated we were given a set menu with no price listed. The sushi and sashimi courses were super disappointing and kind of ruined the rest of the meal for us. Especially disappointing was how expensive it was for a meal neither of us liked. We offered feedback to the manager who was very nice and apologetic regarding the experience. We loved it before the renovations so if we return hoping the food will be how it was before!

Renovated Onyx was smaller (more intimate as the hostess described it) than pre-renovation with fewer booth/tables and a large 'community' table in the center. This latter seating may not be preferred for an intimate dinner but great if you want to meet new people or eavesdrop on your neighbor's conversation. If you do not prefer communal dining then I'd suggest making this known when you make the reservation.

The food, the service, and the atmosphere (we had a booth) were excellent as expected. The food prices were in line with expectations but the drink prices seemed a little steep for what we got---great tasting but for the price I expected a better pre-dinner buzz.

Overall an excellent experience and "we'll be back".

The food wasn’t as I expected. The seating area was so small that we had a hard time to fit in there. I don’t like the new look of the restaurant. I won’t go back there again and I don’t recommend either. Nothing is the same with that beautiful hotel.

We went on the 1st night of DineLA.
I did not have high expectations but was pleasantly surprised! The quality and taste of food were excellent and were not even tiny servings. The $39/person was definitely worth it.
We will come back even if it wasn't on a DineLA week.

We have enjoyed Onyx in the past and was considered a favorite restaurant for self proclaimed sushi snobs. It’s actually inedible. The fish was caught wrong and was over priced for the quality. We will not be going again which makes me very sad.

Amazing food. The best Sushi I had in CA. It is expensive, so can’t be a routine, and they close too early (9:30 on sat night). Suggest to manager to include reverse happy hour (like 25-50% off from 9-11 pm) to foster local repeat customers.

I’m not sure what happened since the last time I was there. It used to be beautiful and energetic....it was awful, sorry to say. The food menu is the third of its original size and choices were very limited. I had ordered the lobster ramen which I couldn’t eat....so fishy tasting. I had a group of
