Diner Reviews
  • "Outstanding over priced Not I Typical sushi restaurant"
    Dined on 9/10/2014
  • "BONDST never fails to deliver high quality, innovative dishes. Our top three appetizer favorites: Big Eye Tuna Tart, Red Snapper Tacos and Tuna Crispy Rice are the perfect precursor to a guaranteed mouth-watering main course, with climax achieved by the Mochi Ice Cream which is served in just the right size portions. The lychee martinis serve as the lubricant of choice for a positively delectable culinary experience. Even when the services is mediocre, it's better than most."

  • "The service and the food was totally amazing but the tables were too close to have private conversations. It was really uncomfortable because the place was packed."

  • "I regularly dine at great NYC restaurants each week for either personal, or business reasons. Therefore, I've established my own "curated" list of preferred spots; BondSt remained a top favorite. However, after my meal on Friday night, I feel obligated to debut my first public restaurant review. I was celebrating a birthday, and my company had never experienced true Omakase. I raved about my experiences at Gari, Seki, Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare, etc. Now, I had been to BondSt 2x's previously, and had amazing sushi. However, this omakase was the absolute WORST. I advised the waiter on what to omit, and we received fish that was far from fresh (every piece was "fishy"), stuffed w/ wasabi (requested none), & bland. Not worth $265."

  • "It was a great restaurant. The service and food is exceptional. But our dinner (and others) was disturbed by an obnoxiously loud and drunk table of two"

  • "The experience at BondSt was excellent. I wish their was just a little but more light so you could see what your were eating."

  • "Get the Big Eye tuna tart appetizer. It is memorable. The snapper tacos are also great. Several great main courses too."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "If money is no issue, then BONDST is a great option for sushi and izakaya. Our favorites were the tuna tarts, crispy shrimp, miso glazed cod, lobster risotto, and lychee panna cotta. Everything was delicious, but portion sizes are small for some dishes, which was disappointing given the prices. Our server was very helpful and good-natured, which added to the great ambiance of the restaurant. Overall we loved it and were glad we went!"

  • "Frequent diner at this establishment when visiting NYC, Very fresh and excellent sushi and sashimi choices for you to choose or like me, go straight to Omakase. Big eye tuna Tart is a MUST!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "From the second we walked in - from the hostess that didn't smile to the waitress that had the need to rush our meal - the service was unacceptable. We are not going for a $20 meal - we were rushed and given a roll of the eyes when asked for more time. Never again"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Amazing food and great service! I went there with a group of 4 people and everyone loved it. Despite having a mixed group (one of us doesn't eat sushi and I have celiac) everyone loved the meal. They even had a gluten free menu and gluten free soy sauce which really made my night! I would totally recommend this to friends!"

  • "Way too expensive for what you get. Drinks are a joke."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The best Sushi rolls in the world plus the most tasty creative dipping sauces. Bond St never disappoints."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food was amazing. The ambience like we just discovered a secret that we just can't keep. The service was very attentive though impersonal, which is ok. A fancier place where you can still dress down some but impressive enough to wear a three piece suit to as well. Overall great experience. A little pricy but can't argue with the results."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Used a zagat smartbox card here for 4 shared courses between 2 people. 1) salad, tuna tart, and spicy tuna crispy rice. 2) seabass and rock shrimp 3) 2 sushi rolls and 6 pc sashimi. 5) chocolate lava cake with ice cream scoop. More than enough food for 2 and it was delicious. Nice cozy interior, but needs more lighting. Overall, a great experience."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Excellent Food - the sushi rolls melt in your mouth. The fish is fresh and delicious. The prices are cheap for the quality of sushi! The only down side was how close the tables were jammed together, the venue is a bit small, but it has a lovely charm to it over all! The drinks were a bit pricey (Tried the Asian Pear Spritzer), but I would go here for the sushi."

  • "I had heard a lot about BONDST, to some extent this made me not want to go I thought it would be style over substance. However, it was worth the wait and I can say that it was a surprisingly enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend the jalapeno scallop roll from the sushi menu and I would suggest trying salmon. The salmon was beautifully cooked and has strong flavor. The setting of BONDST is simple and to a high standard. On the whole a good experience."

  • "Once in a while it is nice to spend some $$$ and eat very good quality sushi. Bond St with it's atmosphere provides a very nice ambiance. Though anything but a true Japanese restaurant, the sushi is of quality and delivered in a fast and courteous manner. A very attentive staff."

  • "We had a really good meal.. Service was great.. We had one person with us with serious food allergies and our server made sure that everything we ordered was appropriate.. Would definitely recommend"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "My daughter and I absolutely LOVE this place. Everything is perfect. The broiled sea bass is ambrosia, my daughter says it should be on the dessert list. We come here twice ever time I come to New York City, only because three times in a week might be a bit weird . ambiance is like a very cool foreign movie with romance and a bit of mystery or you can sit near the sushi bar for all the way live excitement and energy. What more need I say."

  • "The food here was amazing. Some of the best sushi I've ever had. When I first saw the menu I wasn't to thrilled with it, but I was blown away when we got our dishes. The crispy rice with tuna is the best I've ever eaten. The only thing that really dampened our experience was our waitress. She was not friendly at all, but instead seemed annoyed almost and was very short with us. Our bus boy was actually very friendly and we talked to him much more than our waitress as she was not very attentive at all. "

  • "First came to BondSt many years ago based on a clients' choice. This is my 3rd time, but last time was likely 10 years ago! Came for long weekend to NYC with my family. My niece -- who bases her opinions on sushi based on more "basic" vs. specialty rolls -- thought it was outstanding. My sister-in-law declared it the best sushi she'd ever had. Very accommodating with our Sake choice (e.g. tastes). Can't wait to come back -- and not wait 10 years!"

  • "We ate here five times. Sushi is average. For this amount of money go eat sushi somewhere elsw. If we ever go back it won't be for sushi. We only go there because our friends like it. Not sure why. It's a cool spot to be in, but if you just want to be seen there go grab a drink.at the bar. Our drinks were the tastiest thing we had there."

  • "My husband and I seem to celebrate every special occasion at Bond St. The food is fantastic...the lobster rolls and tuna pizza are amazing. Service is top notch and the drinks are also excellent. We love the fresh ginger ale with whiskey. It's a must try. Pricey, but so worth it."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We had the best meal here -- it was a perfect date night in the city! We were only visiting for two nights, and we almost went back the second night! The pizza sushimi is a must-have appetizer. Everything we ordered was fantastic, and the service was superb. We will be back again one day! "

  • "The food was amazing but the bill was absolutely crazy! More expensive than NOBU and the food is pretty much the same. Nobu has more choices actually. So while this is a great restaurant, the prices are just ridiculous and you can get the same food and service and atmosphere for a lot less at Nobu!"

  • "So consistent time after time! Truly amazing food!"

  • "I heard from a friend that this is a very good Japanese place. I was skeptical at first since I know Japanese food in Japan. The selection of fishes was above average, but better they lacked any seasonal Japanese fish. The negitoro maki had a slight fishy smell and taste, which I give a poor rating. The tuna was average us small bodied bland variety. The hamachi, scallop, uni, and lobster sashimi were good and fresh. All in all average for a Asian fusion joint and I'll try a real Japanese next time. "

  • "I took a date there last night and we dined on the 2nd floor. The busboys were very polite, the staff who brings out the food each time and describes everything on the plate to you were very pleasant and professional & maitre d. The sushi was good (should be a lot better at the price tag they put it on it). Our waitress was not pleasant at all. My date and I noticed it right away. I don't remember her smiling once the entire evening. Almost every time she came it felt pretty awkward (like she was conducting serious business with us every time). I also felt rushed; after I signed the check and we were still nibbling on the dessert plate between us, she thought it was a good idea to steer BTW us and remove the plate. expected better"

  • "The food was very good and worth the price. One thing that bugged me was the waitress tried to up sell us on every drink/dish we ordered. Pretty tacky given the reputation of the restaurant."

  • "Service outweighs everything, dining area and ambiance is just okay. Food is just okay as well, wine list limiting. Wouldn't go back or get a craving for anything here. Very non-descript. "

  • "Even after 10hrs in a plane, (not in the best frame of mind :-) ) we thoroughly enjoyed our outing, although being a bit on the tired side we found the noise level got a bit hit high occasionally, but that was just others enjoying themselves too. The food was superb, with great recommends from the staff, the table service was brilliant."

  • "Ive been there before and it has great food, we went just for sushi and i think their main courses might be more special. The waiter definitely was rushing us and wasn't very kind."
