My husband and I tried Onyx last Monday and our experience was very good. The interior is very "posh" and I would compare it to a Keg meets Browns kind of atmosphere. This is definitely a MEAT restaurant so if your a vegetarian or are not feeling like Meat, then don't go here!
The lounge looks very hip and would be a great place to meet friends after work for some appies and drinks :)
We arrived and were greated by the restaurant manager right away and seated immediately. The server was pleasant and took our orders right away. The only downfall was that my husband wanted the bone in steak on the menu and they ran out of it from the weekend, and then we went to order the scallops as an appie and found out that they weren't up to the restaurants standards when they received the shipment that day so we couldn't have those either. We were not upset by this though because we would rather not be served scallops if they did not look good then risk being sick. Also, my husband works in the restaurant industry and I used to work in it so we understand if something is not available to order.
The menu is created as A La Carte, so be prepared to choose your meat and then any side you may like. We had the corn fritters as an appetizer (they were delicious), my husband had the lamb which is said was very good and I had the filet stuffed mignon burger which was good as well. We ordered three sides, the smashed potatoes, yam fries and the onion rings. The onion rings are awesome! You can hear them crunch as you bite into them and they are soooo good! So that is definitely my recommendation as a side dish. The food was cooked perfectly, the presentation was excellent, everything was fresh and tasty and our wine glasses were always topped up!
At the end of the night the manager apologized for the fact that the two things that we ordered off the menu were not available and brought us a dessert wine each (which was very nice of him).
Sure there were some hiccups through the night but we will definitely be back!
