    We had booked this restaurant for a special occasion and not only did they mess up that we were supposed to have two tables side by side, but our table was seated 45 mins late, despite numerous attempts to ask why we were not seated at our reserved time! From the management to the server, the service was shocking as were the attitudes! Will not be going back to this restaurant ever again!

    Food was nice, but not any better than at many more reasonably priced Japanese restaurants. Nothing stood out as special. The room was very beautiful, however the tables too close for any type of intimate conversation. Very noisy, we had to speak loudly to hear each other. We could hear the conversation at the nearby tables. Would not go again. For the same price, we could go to several other Japanese restaurants with much better food.

    It was great. We actually ended up staying in the lounge but it was great all the same. The lounge was really chill. Sushi was amazing. Expensive but my girl absolutely loved the place. So much that I probably will have to take her back. Hope I get some overtime next week, lol

    Always a great meal, food is always fresh and delicious. The big eyed tuna tart is to die for! Went for an early dinner with my husband and son and although we usually go for a romantic Saturday night dinner it was still great for an early Sunday eve dinner. Marisol our waitress who has been at Bond forever was sweet, helpful and attentive. We will defiantly be back soon!

  • a very disappointing night
    disapppointed
    Dined on 11/2/2013
    Based on my many excellent experiences at Bond St, I recommended and made a reservation for my brother and his girlfriend to celebrate her birthday here. Things seemed off when they were seated on the main floor, not the elegant zen-like second floor dining area (they unfortunately didn't know to ask to be moved upstairs and I, having only ever eaten on the second floor, didn't know to warn them). Instead of the usual understated but attentive service and perfect pacing of the dishes, they were rushed by not especially knowledgeable or attentive staff. It may seem unfair to base this review on service and atmosphere rather than food, but that is partly what one expects from this usually excellent restaurant. They had a very mediocre night.

    It is really hard to beat BondSt for sushi. It is a cool spot without being trendy, the bar tenders and wait staff are friendly and interesting and the food is always excellent. It is great for a client dinner or for date night. I challenge anyone to have a bad experience there. Not possible.

    We had the least of the tasting menu options and it was so rich and exquisite - I can't imagine what the more elaborate options could be like! I think I would have died and floated off in a nimbus of gustatorial pleasure. Everything that we had - oysters on the half shell, salmon with yuzu creme and truffle oil, sushi, miso poached cod, buckwheat soba with duck and a delicious selection of desserts.

    The food was impeccable & the ambiance was perfect for our group. Unfortunately the service was substandard. Some members of our group didn't receive their food or drinks at all after reminding our server multiple times. We had a large group, but at least half of the party had some sort of concern with their order.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/5/2013
    Arrived early. The kind host/ess offered sit us down early or to have a drink at the bar. We opted for bar. The bartender was very nice and careful to listen to our preferences. He made the best cocktails we have ever had! When we asked to be seated, we were seated immediately. Once seated, it took approx 15 minutes before our waiter acknowledged us. After that, he was VERY slow to give us proper attention. Finally, after looking over the menu and asking our waiter questions, he was very helpful and accommodating. Our waiter should have been nicer from the beginning. He finally warmed up to us. When we got our wine and food, it was excellent! After dinner, we went back to the drink and talk with the bartender he made our night, he was fab!

    Went to Bond St to catch up with a large group of friends - table for 10. Food was good, not amazing though, there are better Japanese restaurants in town however the atmosphere and the cocktails are what really makes this place - the whole package. Great spot for a lively place for dinner with friends. But if you're a real foodie, would try more low key Japanese spots in town.

    We had a table for two upstairs. The decor was nice but a bit too dark for dining. We could barely see our plates. Our server was attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Our bill was $300 including our wine. We were still hungry when we left. It just didn't live up to the hype. The tuna tart was the only thing we tried that I would recommend and rate as excellent.

The rolls are also wonderful. Everything is light and fresh with a special touch, a bit of citrus or some truffle oil. The waiters are always nice and friendly. The place is attractive. We'll be back for the next birthday.
