Great Food but bring your wallet
Submitted Friday, July 27, 2012 - 4:19pm [Dine in]

Wife and I had an entertainment coupon so we decided to try it as we'd heard good things about it.

Evening started out awkward as the waitress broke my wife's water glass on the table shattering on her and water every where. She handled it well and was apologetic. Should have offered to cover our appy as a result but didn't.

The flank steak appy was excellent.

Wife had the jerk chicken which was spicey but tasty. I had the Alaskan Halibut with a raspberry butter sauce and came with a nice risotto and fresh veg. One of the best fishes I've had in years.

We split a piece yummy and sweet pecan pie for desert and she had an after dinner coffee.

The $16.00 off for the entertainment coupon helped but with tip we still shelled out $100.00. Glasses of wine are close to $10.00 each as are the deserts so be aware before you go. I recommend it on the food alone not the price.

Place has gone downhill......over priced for Sub-Par food.
Submitted Tuesday, May 1, 2012 - 9:07am [Dine in]

We had eaten here previously a couple times and the was food was pretty good. Decided to give it a try again but started to get 2nd throughts after reading the other recently bad reviews. We are kind of the mindset that "don't believe it before you try it" so we decided to go anyway.

The Owner sat us....he kept walking around like he was "the man" ....was kinda weird. The server was young but polite and quiet....seemed to have a basic knowledge of the menu but no a lot of confidence.

I had the 7oz sirloin which was pretty good actually....had it medium rare and the cook did a good job. The prawns and scallops were decent. The baked potato was really dry like it was nuked in the microwave. No matter how much butter I put on it didn't really help! The vegatables were dry and hard. Absolutely no flavor. The mushrooms, onions and tomato's beside the steak were mush.

My wife had a pasta dish. She had a chicken breast added to the dish for $4.95 but the chicken was just that pre-cooked and cut chicken breast you'd buy in the deli aisle with the fake grill marks. She said the dish was "edible" but overall quite bad. Sauce was dry with little flavor.

With the desert we split, entree's, and 2 glasses of wine it was nearly $70.00 and totally not worth it. You could get a way better meal for the same price or less.

The decor in there is still from the early 90's or late 80's.

If in the area, I highly recommend you do NOT eat there. Try the Sockeye City Grill, Tepanade or even one of the local fish and chip joints.....you'll be way happier!!!

Outstanding Food!!!
Submitted Sunday, August 14, 2011 - 7:53pm [Dine in]

My wife and I took her cousin and wife from out of town for dinner at the WAG. Everything was outstanding. Her cousin said it was the best meal he had on their trip by far. He had the seafood hot pot, his wife had the lobster ravioli, I had the mixed seafood grill and my wife had the pork chop. All food was cooked to perfection. The ocean view and cool historic ambiance make this place a must eat for those coming to white rock.

So good we back again in the same week!....even after Groupon issue.
Submitted Monday, May 2, 2011 - 1:34pm [Dine in]

My wife had a bought a Groupon for Onyx a few months ago. We've live in the area so we thought we'd give it a try and the deal was pretty good. $50 worth of food for $25. We're more into these types of independant smaller restaurants than the "chains" The Groupon was ending May 4th so we decided to make a reservation for last Monday. We were pleasantly greeted by the young lady at the front who was the manager. She acknowledged our reservation and our name. She sat us down and welcomed us. Not a huge place, but trendy decor and some nice music playing. Nice wine bar on the side with a couple of small TV's. Waitress came and explained the specials. We ordered the crab cake to start, came with some type of an avacado Aoli. It was excellent. My wife, who doesn't really like seafood, like it as well. When she came back to take our order we told her we had a Groupon. She said they we're accepting them since it was a "Holiday" I told her Easter Monday is not a holiday and that we should be able to use it. She went and got the manager, who was the young lady who seated us. She said she spoke with the owner and he said we couldn't use it. At this point I was getting a bit upset. I told her I wasn't mad at her but rather the fact it wasn't a really a holiday. I asked my wife if we wanted to stay and seeing as though we had the babysitter at home watching the kids we may as well. Entree's are A-La-Carte. I ordered the 7 OZ Sirloin which came with one of their famous onion rings. My wife had the Free Range Organic Half Roasted Chicken with the bourbon peach BBQ sauce. For sides we had the Organic Yam Gratin, Mushroom Trio, and Vegatables. All the food was cooked to perfection. I usually order a rib-eye for steak but didn't want that big a piece of meat since I had to go play soccer but the Sirloin was very juicy being a lower quality of meat. During the dinner, the manager came back and said she felt bad about the groupon and offered to pay for our appy or our deserts if decided we had time to stay for some. I thought this was very nice of her. I ordered the Creme Brule Trio (chocolate, bailey's and Vanilla Bean) all come in little individual dishes. Very tasty. Wife had the truffle cake, which was very good.

Since the food was so good and we still had the groupon which was expirying within days we decided to go back last night with our friends. The same manager greeted us and we had a laugh about the groupon issue but told her were happy to come back. We shared the calamari which came with a Tzatziki and a bit of hot sauce. It was crispy and fresh. My wife (who again...doesn't normally like seafood).....really enjoyed it. For entrees, my friend and my wife both had the chicken, friends wife had the pork baby back ribs and I went with the fish special which was the 7 oz halibut wrapped in pershutto with a butter sauce. The halibut was incredible. One of the best fish dishes I've had. My wife (again...not a seafood lover said if she knew it was that good would have ordered it) The chicken was excellent and so were the ribs. Sides we had the Tomato and Broccncini, The Veggies, Mushrooms and Smashed Organic Redskin Potato's. The potato's were unbelievably tasty!

Overall we were happy we came back and could now use the groupon!!!.....I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. You may want to make reservations since there are not a ton of tables. Their wine list is impressive as well.

The prices may seem a bit high being that you have purchase entree's on their own their then sides but the quality of the food is well worth it and we felt full but not overly stuffed.

Moxie's Classic Grill3233 St Edwards Dr, Richmond
Pretty decent all around
Submitted Thursday, January 29, 2009 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

Met up there with some buddies after work for some drinks. Some of us ordered food like myself.

I had the Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa. Found it to be very tasty and the pineapple salsa made the dish. Chicken and rice were moist. The Veggies were just 1 big piece of roaster red pepper and a couple thick chunks of grilled bok choy. Not great but not bad either.

Had the blackberry apple crisp on puff pastry for desert. Very generous portion and a perfect dessert for two-people. Tasted excellent.

Overall pretty good experience. Beer was nice and cold and the server was excellent. Only complaint is that many of the entree's I saw on the menu were over priced. The LCD screens in HD around the bar showing sports were a nice touch

Great Service, Decent Food
Submitted Monday, October 20, 2008 - 11:19am [Dine in]

My wife wanted to go to an Italian restaurant for our Anniversary. Since our babysitter was in Richmond we decided to search around for one in the area. We read the mixed reviews on here and decided to give it a try ourselves.

I agree that the service is outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and helpful with the menu selections. She let us sample the wines we were trying to decide on which was nice. The ambiance was nice and italian music was soothing until they cranked up the volume for a couple songs and my wife and I were almost shouting at each other.

They had some restuarant anniversary special which was two entrees for $29 dollars....first course (house salad, caesar salad or soup) with a choice of entree. I decided to go with the Quarter duck with veggies and potato with the house salad to start. My wife decided to do with the chicken cordon blue with Penne pasta and to start with the Caesar. The waitress told me the chef made his own dressing for the house salad. It came and was just a bunch of organic greens that you would buy at Save-On foods with a couple nuts sprinkled on and once slice of cucumber and tomato. The dressing was very good but overall the salad was ok. My wifes caesar was decent but just lettuce, dressing and a couple croutons.

The entrees: I got a good size portion of duck. The orange glaze was very good but the meat itself was a bit tough and dry. The glaze added what little flavor there was to the meat. The veggie's were steamed and fresh. The roasted potatoes were a joke, there was only 2 of them, the were overcooked and were only about the size of the area if you put your thumb and index finger together to make a circle.

I almost laughed when my wife's chicken cordon blue came. It was only the size of a deck of cards and looked like something you'd buy in the frozen food section of your local grocercy store.....and tasted like it too! My wife said it was pretty bad and she didn't even finish it. It was burned on the bottom too. Her pasta she said was excellent and the sauce tasted fresh.

For dessert she had the tiramisu and I had the creme caramel. Both fresh and excellent and were the best part of the meal. But a bit over priced at $8 a hit for a small portiion. My wife had a cappacino which was waaaay to strong, she had to add water and extra sugar to even make it drinkable. Luckily the waitress forgot to charge us for it.

Like many on here, I'd give this mixed reviews. IF I went back I'd try the pasta which seems to be their strong point however, we would not go back there. I think there are way better restaurants out there which would give you better value and food for your dollar. For the $80 including the tip we felt a bit ripped off. We have way better meals and got way more full for way less the price.
