Nearly a year ago we were given a certificate for Onyx but put off using it as we've never been there before and have our favourites around Halifax. Finally, one warm summer evening we found ourselves at Onyx (at the new location on Argyle). I was hesitant, fearing that it was going to be one of those wine bars that are trying to hang on to the 90s Sex and the City vibe. I was wrong!
Onyx is in the restaurant district downtown Halifax, surrounded by a variety of watering holes and fine dining. With a large patio (complete with warmers), you are welcomed into a warm and inviting dining room. Booths, tables, arm chairs, you have your choice. The decor is warm, lots of old wood, and understated chic. Staff are knowledgeable, friendly, courteous but not pushy or trying to get you in and out in record time. The menu is diverse, something for everyone. Portions are generous and culinary technique is elegant and adventurous. The wine menu was extensive and the cocktail menu was great fun to sample. The Urbane was my favourite - Onyx bartenders are fabulous!!
We greatly enjoyed our evening at Onyx, regret not coming sooner, and definitely plan on returning!!
