A word from Bond 45
Located in the heart of Times Square and the Theater District, and walking distance to every Broadway show, this landmark eatery treats you like family and offers up perfect steaks, homemade mozzarella and a fabulous antipasto bar.
Bond 45 feels like part of old New York, because it is. The Ziegfeld Follies played on our roof back when the building was the Hammerstein Theater.
The New York Post calls Bond 45 “An Italian steakhouse reincarnation of the old Jack Dempsey’s, which already tastes like a long running hit, and Hal Rubenstein of New York Magazine says it: ”Treats [you] like family while executing home-style cooking as solid as my mom’s."

  • "The open face lasagna was enough for 2-3 people to share...it looked like a pizza when they brought it to the table....it was outstanding. And my brother couldn't stop raving about the Pesto Ravioli. The food was excellent! The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to please people."

  • "Food portions did not reflect the amount you Pay. Seating arrangements seemed very cramped."

  • "Had reservations prior to a Broadway show. and the restaurant was only a block away from the theatre. We arrived at 5:30 but didn't leave until 7:30 because the dinner entre was so late arriving at the table. The meal was great and the wait staff were very friendly but we felt rushed after receiving our meal and didn't have time for dessert."

  • "We were in NYC for a matinee play. We were very happy with this choice of a restaurant. Food was very good and the service outstanding."

  • "We ate early to make a 7pm show. It was quiet, pleasant and the food was very good. I would go again."

  • "It is perfect location for before broadway theater show. We were late - called about being behind - and they were very accommodating. They knew we didn't have a lot of time and were great. Service and Food came fast. We were even able to have enough time for dessert - all within 1 hour. Food was excellent... my cousin from Korea had his first Filet Mignon and absolutely loved it."

  • "This is our second experience with Bond 45 and it was delicious both of our visits. We would all highly recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "We came in at 6:15 after seeing the Sunday matinee of Les Mis. I asked if I could order chicken parmesan, which is technically a lunch but not a dinner item (I do not eat veal). The waitress checked with the kitchen staff and told us it was not possible. Okay, so may I have a pizza? No again, because pizza is not served until after 8pm…this is ridiculous. The manager came over to apologize, and offered us a glass of Proseco, which I appreciated. When I explained that I had had chicken parm in the evening there before, I was told that they were overwhelmed.The restaurant was less than half full. Bond 45, we are regulars, not tourists, and we appreciate a little flexibility on the menu."

  • "Fixed menu for $100. Offered change in one (main) course for $30 more. Thought that was crazy. Nothing looks or even tastes like what it is. A little too strange for my taste (which is quite sophisticated and has traveled all over the world). Glad I tried it, but would not return. Can't stand expensive restaurants that only serve wine and beer. I told them that due to a medication, I could not drink wine and asked if I could bring a flask of cognac that they could pour in the kitchen. Was told no. They charged $8.95/bottle for homemade sparkling water!"

  • "Bind 45 is solid and consistent. You get a great meal and of you are attending a show, they get you in and out in a timely manner. Service is always personable with extra treats offer... comlimentary glass of proseco, fresh baked cookies and if you're running out of time and skip dessert, you can get a sweet fix with some chocolate bark by the reservation stand."
    Dined on 10/17/2013
  • "Bond 45 is truly a very good restaurant. But I would have a hard time recommending it because they charge prices akin to those of much better restaurants. $40 for lasagna? With one drink and no dessert you're looking at $100 per person. For that price, everything needs to be extraordinary. Bond 45 is just very good."

  • "We dined here with our preteen girls before seeing a play and it was perfect. The service was great and the food was really good - try the lasagne!!"

  • "Overall experience very good, but very expensive for what you get."

  • "Great food, service is wonderful & attentive without being overbearing. Great spot for pre-theater"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Great spot. Been before. Had reservations at 11:00 and ordered some small dishes as we were not sure how much that would fill us. When we finished those and decided we would indeed order an entre, we were told kitchen was closed and we could not order anything else. Big disappointment. Especially since we had mentioned to our waitress what we were doing. :( Appetizers were not at the level of our previous visit or that filling either."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We were referred to this restaurant as a great experience and great food. The food was okay and the service was slow. Our server had 5 tables. At one point, he stopped by to drop off our unopened bottle of wine and five minutes later finally came back to open the bottle. Definitely had other Itialian restaurants that I would recommend over this one. However, the free brittle available at the entrance was amazing!"

  • "Good location in theater district. Delicious pastas, far superior to the fast food choices that surround it."

  • "appetizer "bar" was a big hit. entrees were good but not especially noteworthy. way too loud"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We arrives at 6:00 p.m. It was busy and we sat down on time for our reservation. After ordering drinks and dinner , no appetizer, we sat back to relax . Within 10 minutes our drinks and dinner were served. A little too quick for us but what was I to do? Send back the food because it came out to fast? The meals were tasty - no complaints there. We were out of there in 40 minutes !"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food and Service never fail to please. Bread could have been fresher and warmed but everything else was perfect."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I ordered the Lasagns expecting it to be like any other lasgna at a nice Italian restaurant. What I got was a big surprise- the best I've ever had! I may have to travel back to New York from Texas just to get more."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Went here as a pre-game dinner w/friends from Chicago. We were seated immediately and the staff was top notch professional. That said, our table was so deeply in discussion it was a good twenty minutes after our drinks were served that I noticed that our waiter wasn't going to approach the table to interrupt for our order. 'True sign of excellent dining service, they are not pushy and are totally service oriented and polite. Such a refreshing change to other trending restaurants. Once we called the waiter over he expertly assisted us with our dinner order. (Should be noted that they don't serve their famous thin crust pizzas before 8pm) Everything came out quickly, fresh and was perfect! Definitely a "fit for foodies" place."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Authentic New York Italian food done like no other place I've been to. Perfect for dining before or after seeing a Broadway show. Definitely expensive, but not too much more than your average New York inflation. Worth the reservation for sure!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Large, well-appointed restaurant in the theater district. Good food, but very pricey and very noisy atmosphere. The service was good and the veal chop Milanese was excellent--as was the wine. Be ready to pay mid-town prices. But for a pre-theater meal this place is an excellent choice. Would recommend."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Great Italian. Tabla calda. Plethora or beautiful vegetables and salads. Best pizzas this side of Sicily. Outstanding professional wait staff. Room inviting. Overall totally great"

  • "best of the group by this owner of Trattoria el Arte and Cafe Fiorello. Food is delicious and the menu is exciting"

  • "I am a repeat visitor to Bond 45. The food is excellent; the service great and The Owner's and Manager's have their eye's on the ball. This is what it takes to run an OUTSTANDING establishment where one keeps coming back!! Run, do not walk, to Bond 45"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The space is great for large groups, the service is fast and friendly - perfect for getting you in and out for showtimes, and the food is always good and reliable. Leave room for the "bucket of mousse" and the complementary freshly baked chocolate chip cookies that sometimes wander by the table."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "We were in town and were on our way to a Broadway play. We were asked at the beginning what time we needed to be out of there, and were accommodated. I would go back here again. Good food, good service."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "It was our first time at Bond 45. We were able to make reservations the night before with a party of 8. The food was fantastic, the service was outstanding. Even the hostess was exceptionally friendly, and our waiter was charming and attentive. As for food, our table all ordered something different. The lasagna was amazing, the salmon was probably the best I had ever had and the even the filet was cooked to perfection. Desert was amazing and we had a lot of fun with the "bucket of mousse". Absolutely my new favorite NYC restaurant. I recommend it so very highly."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "A nice "in-crowd + tourist" vibe and very attractive, very crowded dining rooms. Service was good, food okay (though the house specialty fried artichokes at $16 a small serving are beaten hands down by the roasted ones at Brooklyn's Spumoni Gardens!). Way overpriced! Water for $5 was not refilled; had to ask for a second serving of bread (no olive oil or butter in sight or offered) minimum $30 per person and $10 for entree sharing? Food should be outstanding to make these policies tolerable. It wasn't."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Bond 45 has changed its policy on its antipasti. Dlon't like it. You used to be able to order 3, 4, 5 -- however many you wanted. Now it's 3 or 6 -- the portions are too big. I like to try a variety."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "I went to Bond 45 this week with a group of clients. the service was great and the server recommended a ravioli special that a couple of the group had for lunch including myself. It was amazing as she had said. As was everyone else's food. The issue was the lunch ravioli special was $45 each. Yes it was good but it was just the entree, for a few more dollars I can go to numerous locations in NYC for a 3 course Pre fixe and really get some amazing food. So just be aware of the trap."

  • "Love, love, love this restaurant. Staff s friendly and professional but the food is phenomenal ! I ave been here several times and have never had a bad meal. As soon as you enter you are drawn into a oid frenzy! Delicious!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "There were 10 of us and the service and food was tremendous! Sometimes with that large of a group, meals don't come out together, drinks are not replenished but this experience was great. This was not our first time at Bond 45 but this was the biggest group that we brought. We will defineatly be back! Sharon"

  • "Although it was a busy Saturday night before a show, our waiter was patient, kind, and knowledgeable about the menu. He took the time to explain the menu to us and also made sure to get us out in enough time to make it to the show, without rushing us at the same time. His food recommendations were amazing and we loved every single thing we ordered. The freshly made mozzarella was fabulous, the open faced lasagna delicious, and the veal parmigiana was unbelievable. Great experience! Great food!"

  • "The food is good and they make sure you are finished in time for your show. The prices are a little on the high side but not terrible."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Over 30 bucks for a smallish plate of pasta with barely any seafood? Margin happy restaurant, disappointed clientele... I'm more than happy to pay $30+ for a spectacular plate of pasta but this isn't so at Bond 45. Yes it's freshly made, but hardly a large portion and with a meager amount of crab meat - you had to dig around to find any. Not worth the cash."
