Ambience leaves a lot to be desired.. or maybe we were just given a bad table in front of the Kitchen!
Way over priced for the small amount of food you received. $35 for a small piece of fish and a handful of salad..
One had soggy hot chips and I don’t need to say anymore because I won’t be going back

We have dined at The Bon several times. It is one of our local favourites for special occassions. Very classy venue. I took my hubby for his birthday dinner on 13 January. The service from Jennifer was excellent - attentive but non-intrusive. We had the charcuterie, steak, Alaskan crab spaghettini and a side of their famous duck fat potaoes. Food is always e great as expected. Suggestion to the chef, please update the menu. We note tgathat it has not been changed since 2019. Also, please bring back the cafe service during early mornings. Thank you!

Amazing service and phenomenal food as always. We used to travel into Sydney CBD for nights out but won't be heading there anytime soon. The Bon has everything city restaurants have and more. And better yet, it's 10 minutes from home!
Cocktail menu is also great

Great service. The music was too loud. We were there to have dinner and talk to each other and not to only hear music. That said maybe a live band would be cool. The food was nice and the decor really sets the mood for a nice evening out. We will probably go again.

Went to celebrate lunch with our daughter for her 40th birthday.Food was lovely but a little bit pricey.
Service was good. The restaurant is a little bit too dark inside especially for a daytime meal. Probably a better atmisphere for dinner with all the lights on

Had the best New Years at the Bon Pavillion. Music was exceptional. Food was fine dining quality but sizes big enough for our hungry men and cocktails to die for! 100% will go again thoroughly enjoyed.

Had a grate date night with the wife. The ambience was fantastic, the food was delicious and the staff were incredible they made note of my dietary needs and made adjustments to our meal to suite. It was a little expensive but for the overall quality of everything it was well worth it. We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

Celebrating our sons University graduation. Pre dinner cocktails in the bar were fabulous. Social distancing was ok. Announcement of our dinner table provided was perfectly timed. Food was great, serving size was very generous too. Desserts were incredible. Only mention would be mushroom gnocchi was quite heavy and needed another complexity layer to the flavouring. Service/staff were outstanding to both the young lady and gentleman who looked after our table during our meal. Will definitely return again.

We went on the 30th of December. The food arrived after 30 mins but they had forgotten to serve the coffee we ordered. The burger ordered was overdone but the pasta that we tried was good.

We took our family of eleven to the Bon for our pre Christmas luncheon together and the food, cocktails and wine were all amazing. Thank you again for our brilliant family Christmas. We had vegans, meat eaters, vegetarians and gluten free and all were able to eat and be very, very happy.

Excellent meal and great service. Staff were wonderful, the lamb shoulder was amazing!!! If I'm going to be picky, it's just a little too dark to easily read the menu, but really that's a small price to pay for a fabulous evening. We will be back!!

Food was delicious. Ordered 2 different dishes to share which was a great idea, because you get to sample 2 dishes and we odered the pav and shared that too. The dishes were just enough so one doesn't feel uncomfortable.

My meal was not hot, I asked for it to be heated which it was but still wasn’t really hot
The gnocchi was much bigger than last time and it was much nicer a couple of months ago.
It was very noisy too

We were return customers as we'd enjoyed our previous visits. We were seated really close to a large, raucous party of 12 which definitely impacted our experience as conversation was impossible. Service was better than last time but the food was, frankly, underwhelming and overpriced. Doubt we'll be back.

I mentioned it once that it was my partner's birthday and it felt like all the staff knew and made sure to make it known to continue to make her feel special. Even had dessert come out with a sparkler.
Very friendly staff and would gladly recommend eating there again.
