The service and food were both excellent and I'm not including the following in my overall rating, but I wouldn't go again during the day due to how badly behaved some of the children who were there were (running around screaming not just around their own table but ours) while their parents merrily drank wine and ignored them. If you're going for a family feel then fair enough, I'll stay away (or go back with a group with children) but I didn't think it really fit with the otherwise excellent high end service.

Came for a night out from Manchester, we was waiting 45 minutes for more mixers to be brought to our table as we still had 2 bottle of vodka left, we asked 4 different people on which they all failed to bring them, manager then came and brought us 2 mixers (between 10 people) obviously didn't go very far so we was then sat for another 25 minutes for them to being more- when the manager was confronted about this he replied "managers don't serve people, I have 700 people on here what do you want me to do" If you can't handle the 700 people maybe you should think about new management or not letting as many people in

We were running a little late by the kitchen phoned us and stayed open later until we arrived which was so lovely of them. The waiter was extremely attentive and he even let us try some free cocktails and gave me a glass of prosecco as it was celebrating my birthday - such a nice touch!

Had a great time at cocktail making for me and my two friends. We had the bar to ourselves. The man teaching us was great, a little nervous at first but warmed into it. All in all a great experience.

We hired a booth in Bonbar for a friend's 30th birthday. We was greeted with a confused doorman as he couldn't find the booking, even though it was on the back of the document he had. The girls that helped us to the booth was friendly. However we had previously pre-ordered the alcohol we required. Yet they still asked us what we wanted. I'll say for the first hour or so they was visible if we needed them, however later on when we wanted more mixers they wasn't anywhere to be seen. We had to ask at the bar for them to go and find them to come and ask us what do we need. The music was good, atmosphere was ok, the attendant in the male bathroom was a little forward demanding £2. Yet I'm under the impression it's a free service that you tip if you feel like. Overall we had a nice evening, felt the value for money was good. I would recommend to friends.
