Bon Vie - Columbus
Bon Vie's hardwood floors, large antique mirrors, tin ceilings and zinc topped bar make the perfect home for its moderately priced, creative cuisine. Bon Appetit!
Fair prices, food tasted great! Decently timely service! 👍🏾
Exceeded our expectations for a table of 4 adults and 6 kinds under 8.
My spouse and I had a wonderful time celebrating our belated Valentine’s Day. Bon Vie was classy and romantic, but was also appropriate for other more casual occasions. We will likely be back for another delicious meal.
Overall very good. We had an amazing waiter. Will definitely go again when we are back that way!!
i had an amazing experience!! it was my first time going. there weren’t many options on the dinner menu, so i picked something i don’t ever eat; fish. i got the salmon and it was the best fish i’ve ever had. the service was a bit slow, but of course it was booked. overall i would definitely recommend it to friends and family!
Our service was great, we ran into some old friends randomly before sitting for our reservation. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and it didn’t take to long to get our food. Overall great experience.
If they could turn up the heat and dim the lights it would be much better
Have not been for a long while; was pleasantly surprised with the Bon Vie and would recommend to anyone.
We really enjoyed ourselves on Valentine’s Day. We started with an appetizer - Brie Fondue. So rich and flavorful. Our waitress Kate was really helpful. She confirmed my Crepes were one of her favorite dishes. When the dish arrived it was scrumptious. My girlfriend had the savory tomato and veggie pasta and loved it. She took half of it home. Portions were big. The French bread with butter was an added treat. I will take her back here again. What a nice evening!
My wife, son and I went out for dinner friday evening. Upon arrival, we were seated promptly and our server reviewed the specials and answered our questions. The food was delivered to us in a reasonable time . There were no complaints about the food or the service. Overall, everything was good for the evening.
Idk. I like the location, but the food is just ok for me. Im not sure how often they change their menu, but I think they need more items on it. Service was good. It’s just a meh for me. I go once every few years when everything else nearby is booked up.
Food was good to very good. Service was professional and attentive. We were able to order steak from the dinner menu even though it was lunch. The temperature of one of the steaks was overcooked but it corrected right away. The salt and pepper shrimp crowned file was very salty, but otherwise entrées were on point.
I am sad to say that the quality at Bon Vie has dipped dramatically. What was once a favorite spot to grab a bite after a movie or shopping will now be off our list. Our server was very nice and helpful, but otherwise the evening was a disappointment. We ordered, and our salads arrived within a minute; that is not an exaggeration. It felt like they were trying to slide us in and out as fast as possible. Most disappointing were the fries with my fish and chips. Bon Vie's fries were once the best in town. These were inedible, limp, soggy and sad. The fish was pretty good - mild and crisply fried. My husband's steak was only ok. Just too bad they have not maintained the quality.
All three of us ordered salads. The protein element of each salad was very good. Unfortunately, the salads were all served on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce which was very disappointing. Salads made with the mixed greens would improve the salads immensely.
I came here with family. I chose this restaurant because it had a gluten free menu online and i have a mild allergy and avoid the stuff but didn’t want to make a big deal out of it. The service was just ok. The server greeted us and asked for drink orders. A couple of people wanted beer but the rest of us don’t drink and he didn’t seem too happy about that. I asked him if the gluten free pasta was a brown rice pasta and he didn’t know and didn’t seem to want to bother to find out. So, I asked for a gluten free menu hoping it would tell me and then he forgot to bring it. Then when he finally came back with drinks, which took forever, he asked to take the order and when it came to my turn I had to remind him that I still didn’t know what the deal was with my gluten free pasta option and didn’t have a GF menu yet either. Now everyone at the table is looking at me. Then he went and got the gluten free menu and it had the pastas on there but didn’t say what it was made from or what kind of pasta it was, so I just went for it. I ordered the “veggie” pasta and it was I’m guessing a corn-based variety because it was yellow. It was basically just corn pasta and cream sauce. There was approximately two tiny pieces of broccoli and a tomato in my dish that was almost $20. Not exactly a veggie pasta in my book. Extremely underwhelming and I was still hungry. My friends child got a kids pizza and it looked like more food. Very disappointing, I thought it would be a good experience. I had to go home and make myself some dinner afterwards. I’ll be going to Cheesecake Factory or BJs brew house next time.
Our server was fantastic! He is one of the rare ones that truly love what they do. I would sit in his section every time if I could. He was great with my daughter and her friends for her 13th birthday! The food, cocktails, and desserts were great. It’s definitely one of our fav places!
Restaurant week was restaurant weak.
Food was better than anticipated. Shrimp and grits was almost perfect, but was taken back by the lack if french food. never the less what I ordered was flavorful and well seasoned. the wine list and choices were grand and the waiter knew about what he was serving.
I was looking forward to dinner at Bon Vie. I like the menu a lot. However, the little flying bugs were very annoying and make me wonder why they haven't addressed this issue as well as the cause. Many reviews mention the same issue.
Very nice lunch!
I had the salmon. The salmon was under seasoned and both my mashed potatoes and mixed veggies were cold when it came out.
We were excited to try this restaurant but it fell short. Granted, it was during Restaurant Week, but I would hope
they would put their best face forward. The server appeared disinterested. More of a concern was the fruit flies that were actively swarming the table. While it was mentioned to the server, the sever again seemed disinterested.
Our first trip here and to Columbus. We will be returning to Columbus so we can have another meal here. Chocolate cake dessert is the best thing I've ever eaten! Five stars!
Server could have had better knowledge of the cocktail menu did not seem to have clue about flavors or aspects of the cocktails. When we were eating there seemed to be an abundance of fruit flys or gnats it was quite disappointing. Food was good and overall service was good but had some disappointments taking a guest from out of town here and there being flys in the restaurant.
Great experience! The bartender was great! Very attentive!
First time there and the food was great, along with great service. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that it was very loud and we could barely hear each other talk. That being said, we’d eat there again.
We had a lovely dining experience here. The service was outstanding. The food was amazing.
Beef Stroganof had barely a touch of creme fresh but was tender and flavorful. Just not traditional. There was also an annoying bug flying around. Very annoying. I would try again.
Treated like royalty. A better birthday dinner could not be had.
We went for brunch and service was slow. Was hoping to get mustard for my sandwich but she never stopped back by and I didn’t want it to get cold. I do LOVE Bon Vie, though, so I’ll be back. Th
We appreciated the semi private area for our group.
Got sick after. Flies at table. Service inattentive. Must have been rationing Ice too.
Service was very slow and table was left very cluttered. Food was disappointing, 1 steak was served cold and another was raw. Sent back and came back still raw. No management visible. Will not come back.
Hostess made a mistake thinking we would sit at the bar when we showed up 30 minutes early. Rather than admit to mistake or misunderstanding...was snobbish about seating us when reservation time approached. My issue...why ask us to sit at the bar and tell us you will come get us when the table is ready? Not sure want to go back to pay for rude hostess.
New Year’s Eve. Drinks and dinner were great. Loved the bistro salad. New York strip was very good
My husband and I went here for NYE. Definitely not a date night restaurant! Food was good, service was poor - the restaurant was not busy!
We were seated in the middle of the entry way. We ordered a salad and it came at the same time with our dinner entrée. The fries were awful with the kids meal. We were not offered the drink that came with the kids meal. Service needs to be better.
Food was good but our server wasn't great- put the wrong meal in for my husband and brought our salads before the appetizer
Good birthday lunch. The food was good and the service was ok. Not bad considering how busy they were.
