Restaurant details
Neighbourhood: Darlinghurst
Description: Bon Vin (pronounced Bon Vaah) meaning 'Fine Wine' seeks to provide outstanding French inspired food and wine in a warm intimate unique space. Think New York Jazz Bar. Reasonable pricing, great service and innovative menus make for regular customers ... did we mention the wines? The perfect small function space max 30 seated and 50 standing.

Sometimes you bump into a hidden treasure! And it amazes you why it has taken so long! We had the pleasure of dining in Bon Vin last night and were delighted to discover two gems - Bon Vin and their Executive Chef Lisa Nicholson! Ambience - we might have been in Paris for that matter! Even Stephanie who served us was from Dijon - culinary capital of France. Food - Scrumptious! Fresh-Modern Australian!
We loved everything we ate and drank but my favourite was the Duck Ravioli! Well balanced flavours and textures, well presented dish a feast not only for your taste buds but also for your eyes and nose!
They have several neighbourhood specials for mid-week. But please don’t wait until you are in the neighbourhood! Make a booking and visit them now.

After dining at Bon Vin, my only regret is that I didn't come sooner!

Delicious food, impeccable service and a fantastic wine selection.

They do a fabulous $50 pp deal which gives you a drink, an entre and a main - great value.

Definitely coming back - this restaurant is so beautiful. Perfect for a romantic night out or a quite family dinner.

Thank you for you review. As part of our focus on excellence, could you describe what we might have done to get you to give us a five star rating rather than 3 stars? And further, we would love to have you back so that we might get those 5 stars.

This wine bar is tucked away down a laneway off Stanley St, just steps from the city. It's wonderfully decorated ( in the bon vin theme) and very atmospheric. Perfect for a date night or getting together with friends. Its sophisticated and civilised (beautiful low key lighting and importantly-no loud music), elegantly set up bar and tables allowing for dining options and proper conversation. The food and wine are outstanding. Updated French classics, all beautifully executed and presented. The wines too were just perfect. It's a comprehensive wine list, but not massive- just a carefully chosen set of wines to match the food-some great choices by the glass and all well priced. The service was impeccable, professional and engaging. These people are experienced and knowledgeable and care about their offering and their clients. The chef personally talked with us about how several of the dishes could be adapted for someone in our small party with very specific dietary needs-and the result was a marvellous meal and a demonstration of just how good this team at this restaurant are. Highlights were the scallops with artichoke puree, duck breast, the deconstructed beef wellington, and the braised lentil dish-not to mention the chef's potatoes in duck fat wiht delicious aoli as a side dish. We couldn't fit dessert after such a feast, but will definitely be back for that next time!
