    GREAT service, wines, and food! Bravo!!! My reservation was on Monday 11/10/14. LOVED the experience. The host was as nice as could be. Checked on us, suggested items, etc. Our waiter was so friendly and adorable and sweet. The man delivering our entrees was ideal. Great experience.

    My third time eating at Bond 45 in two years. Walked in and we were warmly greeted and offered chocolate. Very good food and so convenient to all theaters. They take reservations by calling or thru open table. My friend and I both shared a caprese salad. We had a cold carrot side which was very good. For dinner we both had the lobster seafood risotto, excellent. Wine was pricey both average for NYC. Not sure if they do this every time but they walked around offering homemade cookies.

    This place is good enough for its location- the food is okay, and the decor is hip. Seeing as it's right in the theatre district, it draws a lot of tourists, but, they could do worse than go to Torino. My main complaint about the place is the service- inattentive and rushed. So, if you happen to be in the area, it's an option, but don't go out of your way.

    Went for a quick business lunch and asked for a quiet table. Was seated in front of the door and the restaurant proceeded to keep opening and closing both doors to introduce fresh air into the restaurant... Except everytime they did that a cold blast of air would but our table. We had to continuously ask them to close the door. Waitress was pushy and kept coming back every two secs to ask us if we wanted to order drinks, dessert etc. We felt they were just trying to turn the table as soon as possible. Food was mediocre and overpriced and came out within minutes of bent ordered. Terrible experience and I will never go back. Will also caution all my friends to stay away.

    Everything sucked, from the annoying acoustics to the food, the seats, the server and the prices. The only good thing was the host was nice and other than that it was disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this place and it probably won't last very long.

    On a Saturday lunch time - not busy. However, our food took over 1:15 hours to be served. Bill had an extra charge for 'open food'. When disputed, this was deleted.

    Outdoor seating was lovely on a sunny day, menu has lots of options (salads, sandwiches and full meals) and every enjoyed their meals. We weren't in a hurry but if you are I would let them know ahead of time.

    Tried this new place and wasn't disappointed. Had the calamari and lemon chicken. Both very good. Sat outdoors which was very pleasant. Hope they can keep going in the winter as the inside was small and tables seems close together. Will definitely go back.

    Sparkling water brought to the table with no glasses Ordered two glasses of red wine. Got one red and one white Octopus was chewy and hamachi crudo was average Pine nuts tasted stale We had no napkins or silverwear or breadplates when our food came Busboy cleared us and asked if we wanted dessert menus before our entrees were out. Also he took our silver and then asked us if we wanted more silver which i then reminded him yesss we havent eaten dinner yet Oh and he took our bread Our negronis came in different glasses The pasta was ok but it took wayyy too long We werent offered dessert and my double espresso looked like a single even thou we paid for a double Waitress was nice just inexperienced. Way too $$$ for this level service

    This restaurant offers a different twist to the traditional cuisine. The top section on the menu is the Pizza Frita and offers a variety of ingredients with it - although I was not impressed with my choice. It is conveniently located in the theater area so it's a good choice for a bite before the show.

    An enjoyable little find under " new restaurant gems". We enjoyed a perfect summer evening outdoors. The wait staff was very professional. Limited menu. I enjoyed the Insalata Verde, surprisingly good. I also enjoyed their version of a pizza, dough is fried with toppings on top. My husband ordered the Lasagna Di Melanzane which fell a bit short. The eggplant needed something more done with it. The manager helped us with a lovely Italian wine, and reasonable as well.

    New restaurant that just opened a few weeks ago and I highly recommand it. The food is delicious and the seating outside is comfortable and pleasant. We had a very helpful waiter that saw to it that we were happy throughout the meal. We will definitely be back!

    Great new addition to the midtown restaurants. Food is a little pricey but excellent. The outdoor seating is unique for the area and very nice.
