    TERRIBLE, went in for a dinner date with my partner and was really looking forward to trying this place since the rating was relatively high. Immediately after arriving the disappointment began. First, we had to wait quite some time before we were even acknowledged and they where in no way busy. After finally managing to get an employees attention we were promptly lead past the main dinning room where there where more than enough empty seats an ushered to a outdoor, poorly lit and cold add-on portion of the building. Where I’m guessing was reserved for all the black and dark complexioned patrons. Now I’m not just saying this to be crude or divisive, but there where literally 3 other couples out there and they where all people of color. Also please do keep it mind that there were plenty of other empty seats inside and this was in the beginning of February in Dc where the weather was about 30 degrees. What’s more, we never requested to be seated in this sections and when we asked to be moved since it was cold we where told “ if you are cold, we can turn on the heating unit.”…………………………moving on. After continuing to request we be seated inside. After being told to follow are server we where brought to the middle section of the establishment but I’m guessing that was to close to our white counterparts since what I can only assume was a manager came out and told our waitress to take us back to the area which we had just left. We where brought back sat just in front of the open door that lead back outside to the very place we requested to be moved from. Defeating the purpose of requesting to be moved since it was still cold and drafty being that close outside. Not want to continue to repeat myself, I gave up and prepared to place my order. The rest of our visit was just as lackluster. Food was overpriced and vastly under seasoned. Utensils, plates and decor were old, chipped and outdated. Over all, the experience was terrible and I won’t be returning anytime in the future

    Pear salad with salmon a little disappointing. Salmon overdone and pears were hard. Dessert menu was lacking and they ran out of ice cream flavors. They sent us to Ben and Jerry's. We had dinner early and were in the back with a nice view of the harbor. It was not loud there, but the rest of the restaurant filled up and it was crowded.

    My wife and I had a tradition of sorts, going to Bond 45 on Christmas Eve, seated on the back enclosed patio. Then we moved out of the area. We returned with friends, requested the same seating and got it. Perfect. Our waitress was great, the patio was cozy and the food was excellent as always. We will try to come back in the area next Christmas.

    We had a reservation but were seated in what was basically a server station. It was very hot because it was right next to the kitchen so constant traffic and it was loud as well. I assume these tables are only used when absolutely necessary but it’s a huge pet peeve of mine to get a terrible table like this when you’ve given the courtesy of a reservation. Train your hostess staff better or management should pay more attention.

    Was advised the steak was top notch. I left feeling unsatisfied. Service was great, but the food seemed over priced for the quality. My mother enjoyed her lamb chops and my husband enjoyed his salmon but felt like it needed a sauce.

    The food was very good, and we enjoyed what we had. Our problem is we were seated in the bar and being 1st time guests did not know until halfway through our meal that there was a dining room. The laughter, yelling and banter among bar patrons was such my wife and I could not have a conversation during our evening celebrating her birthday. As we noticed numerous guests going past us, we learned there was a separate dining room. We made a reservation 10 days ago so felt that should have at least gotten us in the dining area. We asked our waitress to send the Manager over so we could express our disappointment. She said he had left the building and pointed to the LOUD party at the bar and said he had been with them. She said she would have the Bar manager come over. The bar manager came over and after explaining our situation he did agree we should have been seated in the dining area. He said he would address this with the hostess staff to do better in the future. He offered to move us but we were 3/4 finished our main course so opted not to. He did attempt to make things right by sending 2 glasses of champagne and dessert to our table. We understand he was in a difficult situation and appreciate his efforts. Unfortunately, the evening had been ruined by that point. However, if in National Harbor again, we would give Bond 45 a second chance.

    When we arrived, we were walked through the kitchen to be seated right next to it. Very noisy for a party of 4 on a holiday. The chicken parmesean was really bad. It was served barely warm, dry and overcooked which was strange because it wasn't served hot. The other dishes were served hot and pretty tasty. The chicken Alfredo was good, seafood linguini was also nice and served hot. For the price and quality of food given I would not choose to eat here again. Not a horrible experience but also not worth the price, time and quality.

    Our server Jasmine was great. She was so sweet and had a great service personality. I overheard her with other guests and was chuckling to myself with her interactions with them. Playful and polite. Food was okay. Ordered a burger and chicken sandwich. Burger was a little on the dry side and chicken sandwich could have used a little more sauce (I’m a sauce gal). Our table was in a secluded area which was nice. I liked it and for my mom it was a little too dark for her. Overall I would come back again and try more items.

    At National Harbor for a meeting - this restaurant was listed as 'high end' - what a disappointment. Food arrived within 3 minutes of order - clearly per-cooked. All seafood (salmon and seafood linguini dish) markedly overcooked - highly salted - very poor quality. Would avoid.
