The food was great and service was exceptional. My friend is heavily pregnant and our waiter new the ingredients in every dish on the menu and she was able to confidently recommend (or recommend against) dishes - which was incredibly helpful.
The only thing is the food did take quite a long time to come out, which made us feel rushed (only because I had to leave, not because the staff rushed is in any way.)
Anyway, everything was delicious and the drinks were great too. Thanks!

Amazing experience, every dish delicious and inventive. Impressive wine selections. Only minor complaint is I think the music playlist could be better suited to such a classy establishment. Was kind of too much night club vibe for me...

Firstly the service and suggesting for wine was excellent and the entrees and mains were delicious. However in anticipation for dessert we ordered the banoffee pie and it was quite a let down. Not only for the size and four tiny slices of banana. But the biggest issue was the flavours just didn’t mix well at all. What I believe was a lemon foam on top was way too over powering for the dish.

The best prawn cocktail ever. Could pass on the crab spaghetti because of the consistency of the crab. Pavlova was exceptional. Great atmosphere

I have dined at the Bon a few times now and initially loved the trio of
Mushroom gnocchi. Unfortunately the dish is not what it used to be. My friends had a vegetable stack and one of them only ate half as she was not impressed with it. I feel the Bon food has deteriorated over the last few months.

Sydney prices but Gosford service!
Horrible experience.
Don’t send food back (undercooked) or you’re treated like a second class citizen.
Wait / bar staff have no clue about drinks!
Waited over an hour for dinner.
Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

Had lunch at The Bon on Saturday....staff, food, venue were all good. The Bon needs to change it's menu....it has been the same menu for at least a year. Not sure we would go back as there is nothing new to try.

Ambience of the Bon Pavillion is okay if you are looking for a moody type of place to go. For both the quality of food and the portion sizes the pricing is outrageous. $35 for what is effectively a crumbed piece of fish and green beans is not acceptable for a non-fine dining establishment.

Delicious food, service was really good, when we received a warm bottle of white wine and told them, they changed it over straight away to a cold one and gave us a glass of ice to cool down the warm one so we got a free glass of wine! Very impressed, will definitely be back soon.

An oasis of sophistication in a town not many would say is pretty.
If I could live and work in Bonython and eat at bonfire every day, I don't think I would ever want to leave.
The staff are exemplary, the food is exquisite, with a price to match, and the atmosphere is cultured. If only more venues on the Central Coast were on the same level.

Really disappointed as we were expecting more options in vegan food as they have a hole night once a month for vegan dinner. Very little to choose from was very average and very expensive for what we got.
Place and service was excellent.

I was very impressed with my experience, the food was amazing and the service exceptional. We really enjoyed our meals. It was pricey but, I will most likely return for a special occasion.
The staff were super lovely and very very helpful. Good service is always really important to me, as it makes your dining experience special. So, well done to the Staff at the Bon Pavilion.
