Excellent service, as expected in a 4 Seasons, nice ambience, and delicious food. Portions are on the small side, but the flavors are spot on - very fresh! We enjoyed an excellent selection of sushi as well as a couple of rolls and the miso cod which came wrapped in a leaf. Cocktails were good, and they validated our parking... More

WE decided to try Onyx only because of the Travelzoo 2 for 1 coupon. I'm glad that we had dinner there but felt underwhelmed by the portion size. I'm wondering if the kitchen knows which guest is using coupons because the size of the Miso Cod was extremely small. The specialty rolls were great, but not only if you are... More

Onyx has a very elegant inventive menu with a Japanese theme. It's not a sushi bar and too many people are comparing it to their favorite sushi place. Sushi bars are more focused on the quality and variety of fish with local twists in rolls and presentation. Onyx serves sushi but it's not the feature of the restaurant. Now, the... More

We go to ONYX at least once a month. I love when I get the coupons for the 2 for 1 deal here. It includes 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 drinks and a dessert. Our favorite appetizers are the rolls. I just had the Hamachi Ponzu and the I always order the Wagyu hot stone. Desserts change. There use to... More

This is the best sushi I have had in the whole Southern California area. The service and ambiance is fantastic and this is in a hotel, it is a beautiful hotel so parking is easy with either valet or self parking available.

My wife and I ate there while staying at the Four Seasons. The welcome was warm and the waitstaff was friendly, accommodating and knowledgable about the menu. He had bee trained by the chef, who must be gifted to convert an ex construction worker into an apparently knowledgable Japanese food server in such a short period of time. The selection... More

Went here for the first time this past weekend. We knew it might be little pricey, being at a Four Seasons and all, so the cost is what we expected. The food, however, was not memorable. It wasn't bad, just not memorable. Our waitress was great and food arrived promptly. We ate outside, which was very nice, and the inside... More

Our first visit to this Japanese fine dining restaurant in the Four seasons hotel. We had a travelzoo voucher 40% off retail. Even though we were dining with a discount they treated us in a first class manner. Our waiter politely explained the rules of our voucher so there would be no confusion. We each had an appetizer or sushi... More

Dined at Onyx twice on a recent stay at the Four Seasons Westlake Village. We just loved the food, the sashimi was excellent, as was the shrimp. The miso cod was outstanding. Lovely service was also a consistent feature.

We have been to Onyx for dinner on numerous occasions. Not once have we been let down. Their food tastes wonderful -- whether sushi or cooked items -- and the service, while not always as consistently great as the food, is good nonetheless. I highly recommend it.

Description
Specializing in fresh seafood and sushi, ONYX at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village offers delectable Asian fare. Backlit wall panels of semi-precious stones, such as carnelian and onyx, create a dramatic dining atmosphere. Bamboo floors, Japanese antiques and chandeliers grace the main dining room, while silk lanterns hanging over the sushi bar give an exotic feel. Watch while the freshest Japanese delicacies are being prepared, or sip a drink at the bar, where colourful aquatic creatures live in a double-sided, 2,000-gallon (7,571-litre) saltwater aquarium. A variety of sushi, sashimi and specialty hand rolls complement delectable Asian-influenced seafood creations. The menu offers many options to sample a variety of dishes, intended to be shared at the table. Also pairing well with Japanese cuisine is an extensive wine list featuring choices from California and around the world.
