Food was good I had the chicken Marsala it was good but not great. My friend got the penne w sausage and thought it was good. Service was slow.
Waited 15 minutes on a Sunday evening - even though I had a reservation. The server came to the table very few times. Waited entire meal for warm bread to be served (while other tables had 10 pieces of bread just sitting). Chicken Parm was a hit. Good ambience.
The service was horrible, food average and not worth the cost. We were very disappointed. I have been to the Bond 45 in New York City several times and was expecting much more form this restaurant. The waiters were unorganized and unresponsive. I would not recommend this restaurant.
John turned out experience around. Thank you!
We had a 1 PM reservation and sat outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We ordered iced tea and our meals - which took about 5-10 minutes to get iced tea and our appetizers arrived about 30 minutes later. Our meal did not arrive until after 2 PM-that is over one hour from when we got seated. Not sure if it was the kitchen or the server but one hour and a half for a lunch seemed quite long considering we only ordered an appetizer and an entrée.
Great food. Chris was an excellent server. Love this restaurant.
Dinner was great however we felt very rushed through the meal. The server was taking our dinner selection before asking what we wanted to drink. We had to ask for bread and wasn't given the opportunity to review the dessert menu. Slow down!!!
The food was good but the service was mediocre. It took 10 min from the time we sat down to to be acknowledged, another several before our drink orders were taken. The server repeatedly reach across one of our party to fill water. I would have expected a better service experience.
Don't waste your time. The food was just ok.. we were a party of four - we ordered the fried calamari/fried shrimp family style appetizer. It was a huge portion, and good! As main meals, we had ribeye, filet mignon, salmon, and a pasta/shrimp dish. The steaks were overcooked and just meh, the salmon dish was bland, and the pasta was nothing you couldn't make at home. Really. The worst of the experience was the service. OH MY GAWD!!! The waiter was beyond oblivious. We ordered a bottle of Rose, he brought sparkling champagne. When I asked if they had just regular rose he was confused and said"we have white zinfandel"... I don't know, this guy was lost. He came back with a bottle of the wine WE HAD ORDERD IN THE FIRST PLACE! But didn't change our champagne glasses for regular wine glasses even after we let him know those were not the right glasses... The steaks arrived, no steak knives but butter knives instead. Had to ask for steak knives. He refilled water glasses and wine glasses and spilled the wine and water EACH TIME over each one of us. We are probably the most easy going bunch of people out there but this was ridiculous. A bill of close to $350 USD with horrible service was not at all worth it. Don't waste your time or money - go somewhere else.
We made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary. We were excited to try the Prix Fixe lunch menu we had seen online. When we arrived the restaurant was empty. We were seated and handed the lunch menu with the prix fixe options. When we were ready to order the waiter said the prix fixe was not offered on the weekend. There was nothing on the menu that stated the prix fixe would not be offered on the weekend. When we told him we were disappointed he just said we could order off the dinner menu. No offer to check with a manager or try and take care of us. Needless to say, we did not feel they cared about our business. Hopefully, for the restaurant's sake, it was just our waiter and not the philosophy of the entire staff. With over 40 restaurants to choose from in National Harbor, we enjoyed another restaurant to celebrate our anniversary.
Based on the menu price I thought the service would be excellent but it was less than. Waiter seemed like he didn’t want to be bothered, just general poor service.
My hubby and I celebrated our 12th anniversary with Dinner at Bond 45. The Assistant General Manager John and the rest of the staff really went out of their way to make our evening something special. The hospitality at Bond 45 is unmatched and we appreciated the service as well as the food and drink. We would certainly visit here again in the near future.
Delicious simple food served perfectly
Lasagna was great.
The food 🥘 quality was poor based on the high cost.
Excellent restaurant and great atmosphere; easy to get reservations
A great place for a late lunch. Our waiter was excellent and the food wonderful.
Lasagna was like mush and Cesar salad was wilted and slimy
My wife’s Bday. We had a great meal and great time!
Food was delicious. Service not as much.
Went for my 30th birthday!! Exceptional service and food. Made the experience one to remember! My friends and I had the best time and couldn’t stop laughing. The assistant GM, John Edward, made sure the experience was memorable. The server, Oscar “the grouch” made us laugh and was relatable. Would give more than 5 stars if I could!
Fantastic experience, we sat in a small room off of the main floor. Victor was a tremendous waiter, the food was delicious. Manager spoke to me by name, even though it was my first time there. Highly recommended.
Our experience was wonderful! I had a family friend in town from Minnesota and we were very impressed with the level of service!!
The service and food was outstanding. We can’t wakt to go back. One of our favorites
The new lounge area is amazing!
While the food was decent, the service was an embarrassment. There was no detail too small for the team to overlook - from spilling water on the table (and never even offering to clean it up), forgotten bread service, or the offer of a burnt cookie still in a sheet pan with wax paper. The worst part was that no one seemed to even care. Bottom line: too many other restaurants with good food in the area that have better service.
It was my wife’s 30 birthday and the servers made this a very special night. The food was amazing, service was spot on and the course flowed out perfectly, we were given a cotton candy swirl cake that was awesome. And the Vodka Martini was great.
Wonderful experience-very attentive wait staff and delicious food! We’ll be back?
Service was slow at best. Bread served before meal was cold, butter was cold as well. You would think dining at an Italian Restaurant you would be served fresh hot bread with olive oil or soft butter for the best enjoyment. The crab cake was exceptional, however the crab stuffed pasta dish my wife ordered was not so good. The pasta was stuffed with cheese rather then crab meant. There was a small portion of crab meat sprinkled on the cheese pasta for show!
Desert was again hit and miss. The cheese cake my wife ordered tasted as though it had been made days before hand.... not fresh by any means. The tiramisu was good, although I had expected the desert to be served with the traditional hint Amaretto.
Probably would eat there again, however it would be my first choice!
Best BIRTHDAY SURPRISE I've ever had included with a meal! It truly was one of a kind. I would recommend anyone having a birthday and wanting a nice view and good food to take a look at this place!
Our waiter was fabulous and made it a fun evening for our group, thank you!
For the price portions should be bigger. Overall it was a good experience.
This is not the place for a good steak! $44 Ribeye over cooked and no flavor!
The place is not bad. I specifically booked this restaurant for a friend who really likes seafood, however the seafood menu was basic.. which was fine. It was very noisy in there, we couldn't sit next to each, because the way the tables are situated so it made conversation difficult. The wait staff was friendly, when they showed up. It did take a while to be seated, for our order to be taken, for the food to come. The food isn't bad. Just wasn't over the top you'd expect from the prices and style of restaurant it is. Overall I personally wouldn't recommend this place to a friend. Not saying it's bad. It was a busy night, so all my complaints would be justified on their part. It's just not my cup-of-tea.
We met friends who were traveling for a wedding rear by. This was a good fit because of the location. The restaurant was mostly full and the food was good. They had interesting selections at a reasonable price. It was far from home so we might not repeat. That said if looking in that area we would consider it an option.
We went to Bond 45 for my son’s 30th birthday celebration. We were served a small glass of champagne to help celebrate - very nice!!, and the food (steak and Italian food) was amazing!! Great service. We will definitely go back again.
Fabulous meal, decor and service
We celebrated two anniversaries and German (Herman) was an incredible waiter who made our experience great!
Sorry, but the this place is terrible from the food down to the service!! How can you serve a customer completely raw meat & have an attitude over it when addressed. On top of that all the workers I encountered had a very nasty attitude! Save yourself the trouble & drive 15 minuets to Carmine’s. HORRIBLE! Never again
