Excellent food and service. Lovely restaurant and bar but still in Gosford. I hope that eventually Gosford can be revamped and The Bon is a great drawing card.

I took my sister in law and daughter here for lunch. The place was very nice. Felt like we were somewhere in Sydney. Very comfortable booths and spacious. Food was outstanding. Service was impeccable. Dining experience well worth it. Will be going back in a few weeks time for dinner.

Delicious food, great friendly service from the wait staff, wonderful ambiance. Only issue was that one of our party had called 2 days ahead to request a special meal, but the message was not passed on effectively, so the chef would not accommodate her needs.

Need more staff on the weekend , both in the bar and on the floor.
The chairs are also a little low.

Our 3rd visit. This time we went for the best on the menu-and had our best meal by far. The liver parfait, prawn cocktail, filet and ribeye were top class. Not cheap-but impressively honest, quality food.

Lovely ambience in this restaurant, and the Tuesday night $25 Steak Frites special is excellent value. It’s great to see another quality restaurant in Gosford CBD.

We went to catch up with friends as we had heard so many great things about the restaurant.
When we arrived there is a sign “wait to be seated” which is fine except we were standing there about 5 mins as one couple in front of us and they were just very slow to come up. Even the couple in front who were there when we arrived complained. Once we were seated though the service was good, food was great and we had a lovely night. Love the seating. Big booths. Heaps of room and very comfortable.
The only thing I will say is they had live music which we like but if you don’t like noise over dinner, you may want to check first. She was in the bar area but it is all open plan and quite loud. She was great so we enjoyed it.
Would definitely recommend and will be back.

So disappointed with the restaurant , ordered the lamb chops and mint sauce $38, comes with 2 lamb chops on your plate and a dollop of a really poor mint sauce which after speaking with the manager she tells me it’s not really a mint sauce , I said why write it on the menu then , it tasted like a salty pesto, and that’s all you get, I ordered the rosemary and garlic potatoes which were tasteless , I had to put salt on to taste any flavour, so for $50 I had 2 chops and some roast potatoes , no veg or anything comes with the meal .

Everything was too quick. Not many patrons yet, staff were in a big hurry. The staff were much too young and didn’t understand you need time to relax not bop along to the ultra loud music. No one seemed to be in charge, lots of Indians and no chief. I was looking forward to an new dining experience in Gosford and the food was excellent but I won’t be going back. Two bottles of good French wine, three entrees and three main courses. It was expensive but not worth another visit.

The service does not match the price of the meal. I understand the concept of the venue but it should be reflected in the price. Service was terrible.

The food and the service was first class no complaints there. We did go to the bar first for a couple of drinks and the music was far too loud and so repetitive. It’s not a nightclub and it was still only 7.30 pm so hardly late. I’ll be back for a meal without a doubt but highly unlikely to go to the bar first

Beautiful food. Service needs to be polished up. We were asked for our order and we hadn't even had a drink order. We were not greeted at the table either. Second time I've been there so just get the staff to up the attitude & this place will continue to be a place we all want to go to.

Enjoyed the food, ambiance and good service!
Disappointed as we were having a family catch up dinner and impossible to have a conversation due to
loud music !
Suggest turning down the volume so patrons can have a conversation and enjoy their dinner

First time visit for us and we enjoyed it immensely. The service was exceptional and the food delicious.
We will be back however next time will resist the urge to visit the shoe shop in the shopping centre - that cost both of the ladies MONEY!!!

We ate on a Monday night with our 4yo the staff were great we had the pasta special and it was delicious even the kids burger was yum 😋 .. we had the 300g hanger steak as well it was ok but maybe not cooked the right way for the steak as even though it looked tender it was a bit chewy😬 but the flavour of all the meals and the atmosphere was good .

Noise level made it difficult to hold a conversation with the person across the table. Waiter forgot to bring the ordered coffee. No steamed veges. on the menu.

Food was excellent. Décor outstanding.

The Bon Pavilion would have to be the nicest place to go to in Gosford.

Great food and drinks.
