  • "Having eaten at the Bond 45 in NYC and hoping to share that experience with my wife for her birthday I was really disappointed since this one was nowhere near as good of an experience. The one in NYC has the full italian menu (incl. pizza, etc. - compare NYC menu to national harbor menu on the bond45.com website). National Harbor has split into 2 separate restaurants (Bond 45 & Fiorella's across the street). - Go to the one in NYC, much better food, ambience and energy & overall experience!"

  • "My husband and I dined with two other couples to celebrate a promotion and job change for a good friend. Our table location was perfect with a breathtaking view of the Harbor; we watched the concert and The Wheel while enjoying the great company of friends. This is must visit restaurant. The food, ambiance and everything was just great!!"

  • "We've had dinner here a couple of times and the food is always great. I don't know if it was a bad night or what, but the delay between courses was exceptionally long. Thank goodness we didn't have the kids."

  • "Steaks were better than seafood but all in all a great place to eat in a very scenic location. I would definitely go back"

  • "I knew the prices were Manhattan style before going in,that placed my expectations a higher than normal. The prosciutto mozzarella app lacked seasoning, all three entrees were cold. Ordered béarnaise with my filet and lobster tail got it 6 minutes after having to remind the food runners The Branzini was a few to 5 days old. The Ossobuco was a complete disaster the use of the end of the shank is a poor choice in dish construction (no marrow), the shank was not properly braised, it was tough, loaded with connective tissue and really bad, I believe the Parpadella was Dechecco, it should be made in house for that price. The complimentary cookies were passed on a dirty sheet pan and the cookies were just shy of burnt. Excellent olive oil."

  • "Although the star system will not allow me to rate bond 45 as any less than "do not recall" ( 4 star)loud it was insanely loud. There was outdoor music playing which was nice but it was so loud we could not hear each other speak at our own table. The service was lovely, the bread delicious, but the meal itself was sub par at best."

  • "One of my worst dining experiences, but at least it was consistent--poor service & poor food. The asparagus/beet salad was mostly greens. The long-awaited spaghetti was a small portion topped with insipid (possibly canned?) sauce. Like many Yelp reviewers, I'm taken aback by the high prices. My next meal at the Olive Garden was much less expensive & more satisfying."

  • "9:30 pm reservation. Wasn't extremely busy. Ordered filet mingnon, lobster stuffed with shrimp n crabmeat, and potatoes. Steak and potatoes were really good and cooked perfectly. The lobster came floating in a plate of water. No big deal Problem was it was not even warm. My lobster was COLD. The drawn butter was cool. I was so mad that they had ruined an expesive lobster."

  • "We had a great anniversary dinner. Great food, nice atmosphere, but very expensive. My wife and I enjoyed our dinner, but I do not know that it was worth the cost. That is the only reason it doen't have 5 stars in my opinion."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food and drinks are overpriced. The quality of the food and drinks is not outstanding. The service was poor - long waits. The place was dirty. there was food all over the floor and on the chairs. The bathroom was not clean. I would not return to this place."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Recently dined here with my spouse & had the porterhouse & ribeye - both were melt-in-your mouth perfectly cooked & seasoned. The creamed broccoli rabe was scrumptious. We were first seated on an enclosed patio near the kitchen. It killed the whole ambience to constantly hear the kitchen noise. Since the weather was nice, we asked to be re-seated on the outdoor deck, which was a lot more enjoyable. Our server was great but there was a delay in the kitchen having bread ready. After dinner, our waiter offered us (gratis) freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, which was a really nice touch. Other than our initial seating and the bread delay, the evening was great. We plan to return & hopefully have a flawless experience at Bond 45."

  • "Everything was outstanding from waiter attentiveness to quality of the food. We had the fried shrimp and calamari for appetizer and perfectly cooked Porterhouse and New York strip steaks for the main courses. Shared a side of polenta, which was very good, but a bit heavy on the cheese for my wife's taste. On a different note, it was very nice to sit and enjoy our dinner in a quiet environment and talk. We are so tired for restaurants that feel they need to have loud music and having to compete with it to converse. Thank you Bond 45!"

  • "From the service, to the food preparation and flavor, it was a wonderful dining experience for my wife, my mom, and myself. My mom is visiting from Seattle, so for her it was an unexpected treat. She had the crab steak, which she'd not heard of before - and loved; while my wife and I had the lobster - shelled and served without the shell - how nice! The warm olives and meatballs we had before the main course were both excellent. I could make a meal of the meatballs alone. I must compliment the chef for the fantastic flavors - he nailed it. True Italian. Also, our server was so nice and made our dining experience even more special."

  • "It was a bit late on a Saturday night, and the harbor area was busy. My wife and I wanted a nice place for dinner so we decided on Bond 45 since they had a 10 pm reservation available. When we arrived and indicated we had a reservation, we were seated almost immediately, even before some other folks who had been waiting without reservations. The waiter was friendly and provided good service. I chose a scallop dish and my wife had a crab dish. There was plenty of crabmeat but my wife would have appreciated a bit more seasoning. On the other hand, I thought my scallops were seasoned deliciously. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience and would come back again."

  • "If you live in Maryland, and want great cuisine, great romantic atmosphere, and beautiful scenery, this is your place. Excellent dining, friendly stafF that we're very helpful. Our neighborhood office eats here all the time and I have never been disappointed no matter the dish. Highly recommended for any occasion."

  • "The food and service were wonderful. We had the best steak EVER. Our servers were attentive but we never felt rushed. The only possible downside was the noise level. It was very loud that evening. I don't really hold that against the restaurant or the patrons who were enjoying themselves heartily. We were just looking for a little quieter atmosphere ourselves that evening. We will definitely go there again."

  • "Excellent wait staff. We had the best crab cake 'steak'! Caesar salad was also delicious"

  • "Food was great. I would Recommend lasagna and cheesecake. We took our children and the server worked really hard to make sure they enjoyed the experience."

  • "The food is always great. The steak was cooked as requested. The waiter was attentive. We sat on one of the enclosed balconies with a view of the ferris wheel. As it was close to sunset the view was beautiful. Could put some tint or covering so the sun isnt directly in guest eyes. But very nice anyway. Great options for dessert too."

  • "This was my second dinner with Bond 45, my first experience was perfect. Food, atmosphere and service were just right. Second trip was disappointing. The atmosphere and service were great but the food was lacking. The cut of meat (costing $54) was mostly gristle."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Enjoyed Bond 45 while at National Harbor with a seminar. Four of us for dinner. The seating was comfortable the menu was extensive. Two in our party had the crab steak and loved it. Another had a great steak and anther a pasta both were pleased. They have great wine choices and we enjoyed the sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer too."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The food overall is very good. The portions are a good size and the mozzarella is delicious. The service was very average for a high end restaurant. We tried to order 3 beers on draft and all of those kegs were warm or they were out of the beer (it was a Tuesday night). We ended up ordering bottled beer and the waitress brought them out without chilled glasses, they were out of those too. These things weren't the waitresses fault but she seemed oblivious to them and really wasn't very attentive or apologetic."

  • "For the price, this Bond45 was a little disappointing. Drinks were skimpy..... menu not impressive...... seemed like they were rushing us out of the place to close for the evening....."

  • "I made a reservation to take my husband out for fathers day with our children. THis restaurant is not kid friendly. THey did not even have a kids menu, or kids choices. So essentially, my 3 year old did not eat. The food was good, but not worth the money we paid for it. Wasn't a great experience."

  • "This National Harbor favorite has never failed to please. From the moment you walk in the door and are warmly greeted by its staff, Bond 45 offers something well beyond the norm. And they deliver with succulent steaks and Italian fare, a splendid view of the harbor and a quiet ambiance that makes any special occasion perfect."

  • "Suffice it to say that as a steak lover... I am always pleased at Bond 45. The service is great and the steaks... Wonderful. If I were to change any one thing it would be this. I like butter for my bread... Individually wrapped portions? Really? In a restaurant of this caliber that's just wrong. Of course one personal portion of butter will not keep me away from a great steak... Just saying."

  • "I wanted to be impressed with Bond 45--great Potomac view, plenty of outside seating. Bond 45 most certainly wasn't impressive. This is an "Italian Steak and Seafood" place, but they do neither very well. My NY Strip ordered medium rare came out well done the first time...and they agreed to provide me a second steak because they concurred that it was "medium, not medium rare." Medium?? It was shoe leather scorched. The second strip, while served at the appropriate temperature, was not befitting of a $50 cut of meat. The house "specialita" jumbo crab steak was average--average crab in Maryland isn't going to cut it. The puff bread and Caesar salad were a promising start, but that was it. Way, way, WAY overpriced. Skip it."

  • "We celebrated a family member's birthday at Bond 45 but some were shocked by the menu prices. The birthday girl and I truly enjoyed our experience - the waitress was great - I only wish I had warned the others about the menu prices. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and dessert, and the wine was delicious. I was told that the birthday girl would be serenaded the happy birthday song in Italian, but she only received a scoop of ice cream surrounded by cotton candy. The staff was very friendly. "

  • "Very good restaurant, the service and ambiance were excellent. However the food didn't seem to hold up to the "promise". It was good, just not great, and for the prices you are paying you want great food. None of the food was bad, it just all seemed to lack something. I.E. I ordered a medium-rare steak, it was more on the north side of medium. Still good but not what I ordered. The staff was great and attentive. They seated us at a wonderful corner table in the side room with a great view but the main room was very loud."

  • "I ordered the 8 ounce center cut fillet, caesar salad, and a side of potatoes. I've had better steaks elsewhere and the other two items were just okay. The service was excellent...I just wish the food was, as well. Expensive and not really worth it."

  • "Bond 45 serves extremely overpriced mediocre food. The setting is wonderful especially at night. Beautiful view of the Potomac and the new wheel and the bridge. Steaks are just ok and for the price are not worth it, The steaks at Morton's, Ruth Chris etc are better and cheaper or at least the same price. The seafood is just not well done. How can you mess up a Lobster. It's just steam and a live lobster, right? My SO said it was the worst lobster she ever ate. And we've had a lot of lobsters over the years. The fish stew (Cioppino) was in a brown gravy. Eyuck. Glad I didn't order it but I pitied my dinner guest who did. Is it really worth $10 more for 2 more ounces of steak? Never. If you go, go for the view. Just don't eat much."

  • "The hosting staff was disorganized, the server and the non-existant supporting cast was rushed and seemed to only be interested in turning the table over for the next guest. The lasagna was delicious, the steak was undercooked - for the two of us it was hard to justify the large family style portions of the sides - this place is probably better for large families and groups of people than couples."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This restaurant is nice and has nice views; however, it is overpriced. We expected the food to be similar to a Ruth's Chris meal and were disappointed. The food was just okay. We ate outside and the noise level was high due to a band performing on the stage at National Harbor. The service was less than desirable at that price point. I ran out of water twice and it took over 10 minutes for the server to come around and then get a refill. I would not go back to this restaurant. "
