Worst management ever!
After agreeing to meet with a local nonprofit events coordinator, the manager stated once she arrived "I'm too busy". Bonefish wasn't even open yet and HE set up the time! Not only was he rude, he was expecting a FREE golf tournament team (normally $600.00 charge) for donating free appetizer certificates. This seemed "fishy".
Wouldn't the free appetizer cards benefit the business? IE free advertising to hundreds of people.
I will never eat at the Wichita, KS Bonefish grill again, nor would I recommend anyone to eat there due to their poor management choice.
Choose P.F. Changs in the same area (waterfront) instead, their management is wonderful! :-)
The atmosphere and food were very good. The service was awful. The hostess acted as if she had just had a root canal. We were shown to our table and the menus were dropped on the table. Our server came over approx 15 minutes later and did not tell us anything about the wine list or any of the specials. We ordered our drinks and another 15 minutes went by before our iced tea was brought to the table. Our server took our order and we did not see her again until our food arrived. It felt as though she dropped our food on the table and ran off. She did not return until I got up and asked the hostess to send the manager over with a refill for the tea, more tarter sauce, and ketchup. Another 10 minutes went by and our server finally brought some tarter sauce and had to be asked to refill the tea glasses and bring ketchup. The manager never bothered to come over to our table so he/she will never know that his server cannot handle more than 2 tables! I may give this place another chance since the food was really good. I am very disappointed in the server and the manager.

omg, this place is everything you want in a restaurant! the atmosphere is ""polished causal"" so you can go in dressed up for a special occasion OR in your shorts after a day of golfing. the polished wood, the smiling hostesses, unique art on the walls, real plants and a neat clean look all combine to set the mood here- warm, welcoming and friendly.
the food: WOW!!! a very knowledgable and enthusiastic server guided us through the menu on our first visit here. at her suggestion, we tried one of their signature shrimp appetizers. this appetizer is amazing! VERY unique!! their fish is brought in fresh several times a week, so don't think you can get fresh seafood in Kansas! they offer several interesting sauce options for their fish entrees. fresh, fresh, FRESH ingredients in everything from the haricot vert (french green beans) and chilled asparagus side orders to the herbs in the sauces to the fruit in their specialty bar drinks!!
speaking of the bar ... they bring the fresh-forward philosophy out of the kitchen into the bar and it shows in the taste and quality of the drinks!! again, at our servers urging, we tried the Pomogranate Martini. many restaurants offer a pomogranate martini, but none i have ever had measure up to this one! fresh basil in the Strawberry Basil Lemonade! all their bar juices are fresh-squeezed, not poured from a can! ever the sweet-n-sour! they have a lovely core wine list and a list of featured wines that change regularly and the servers seem well prepared to suggest great wine pairings.
the service: knowledgable and friendly. you can tell these people really love what they do. everyone in the place contributed to the service at out table and insured that we had a great experience. our server was able to answer all our questions and make food and drink suggestions that really WOWed us!
we were pleasantly surprised at the value we found here. it wasn't pricey at all! for the experience we had at Bonefish, worth every penny!
