We always see Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge on your way to Suter Brook Village in Port Moody, in fact it is just around the corner from my yoga studio . I always wonder whether we should give it a try. On one occasion while chatting with our favorite waiter from Chop Steakhouse he gave it 2 thumbs up. Onyx has a sister restaurant, Pearl Urban Bistro. There is also two Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge locations: Port Moody and White Rock.
Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge exterior looks a lot trendier than the one in White Rock and includes 3 separate dining areas: lower floor bar and dining; dining upstairs. The ambiance and the environment resembles much like a Cactus, Joey’s or Earls.
It was a late Wednesday night and I was wondering what the Port Moody steakhouse would be. Onyx was rather quiet. This didn’t set off any alarms as we arrived based on recommendations. Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge dinner menu has a lot to offer as we studied the menu and immediately Truffle Lobster Mac & Cheese jumped off the page! Offered as a side & add-on, we wondered if it would satisfy our bellies. Our waiter explained that it is quite generous in size and perhaps we should even reduce what we had on order. Ok, bye bye Crab Cakes! Until next time.
TRUFFLE LOBSTER MAC & CHEESE (Side & Add-On) 13.95 : This reminds me of Yew Signature Lobster Poutine! Lobster chunks were treasured under the lovely al dente mac. cheese and truffle oil makes this dish really deep, rich and creamy. Best to devour at site, we made the mistake of packing leftovers home and something about reheating truffle and lobster doesn’t really gel. Thank goodness for windows!
CALAMARI 11.95: preserved lemon tzatziki, sriracha. Lightly battered calamari and garnishes and tartar sauce. I like how they weren’t too greasy despite being deep fried.
TOP SIRLOIN 7OZ & LOBSTER TAIL 37.95
Our medium rare charred nicely and was seasoned with their signature rub which could use a bit more flavouring. The cut was tender and juicy. The lobster tail had a good bounce and was quite fresh. If you’re a steak fan, this is another option then forever The Keg.
We came back hoping for brunch one Saturday. However, please note Onyx Steakhouse and Lounge brunch services on Sunday. Please read the website carefully. Maybe you can let us know what your favourite Brunch item is!
There is plenty of free parking underground where Thrifty’s is!
