It was our first visit...the atmosphere was very nice with good viewing of the Potomac! The brunch menu selections were all appealing and need to be warmer. Everything was expertly prepared and flavorful! Service was great...servers were very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. It's great...I highly recommend..and I'll be back! Excellent experience!

Not on a Saturday night. Too noisy. Seating in the back, so-so service. Food was okay. Something like Maggiano's, but lots of bar flies standing in the bar area. You have to pass the bar to reach seating. They are rude and do not move. McCloone's Pier house is better.

I was with a party of 5 for lunch and we all tasted each other’s food. We were very happy with our choices, especially the pastas. The cheesecake for dessert was also perfect! We will return!

The waiter was extremely rude and impatient, and lacked basic courtesy to the guests. He had no interest of explaining the menu and responded to inquiries with cold words. He didn't even bring the bread to the table. Such a disappointment!

Shrimp scampi with pancetta bacon was delicious! We got mozzarella bites as an app and highly recommend those as well. Didn’t love the seafood orzo but everything else was top notch.

Brunch at Bond 45 is amazing! The food selection is delicious and plentiful. The staff is attentive and helpful. It's one of the best brunch spots in the Metro area!

Our waitress was in over her head. No silverware when we were seated. Bread served without individual plates. Olive oil by request only. Salads served rather promptly. Entrees did not arrive for about 40 minutes. Waitress promised they were “coming”. There was miscommunication between waitress and kitchen, but that’s a guess. This is a restaurant that handles enormous volume so we would have expected seamless service. Entrees were comped. Classy decision. The entrees when served were delicious. Seafood Orzo is highly recommended.

We recently celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Bond 45 at National Harbor and couldn't have been more pleased. The food was fabulously delicious and the service was top-notch. The restaurant is very lively, but we were seated in a semi-private room, which was great as it enabled us to converse quietly, yet enjoy the robust environment through the glass doors. Our server, Fernando, quickly figured out we were celebrating a special occasion and brought us 2 glasses of champagne, on the house -- a very nice gesture. As Bond 45 is well-known for its steaks, we ordered steaks, both of which were grilled to perfection. After our meal, our server Fernando, brought us 2 glasses of limoncello, again on the house. Bond 45 definitely lives up to its reputation as a fine restaurant -- and we look forward to our next visit.

Our waiter was absolutely wonderful. Checked on us constantly. I told him it was my husband's birthday. He brought him some ice cream and a candle and lead us in singing Happy Birthday. I wish I knew his name. He was an older gentleman.

I had not dined at Bond 45 for several years. I decided to take my Dad to lunch. The food was outstanding. I ordered the filet. The temperature and seasoning were amazing. The mashed potatoes were seasoned well, however, the onion rings were greasy and soggy. My Dad ordered steak as well and loved it. The issue was with our server. He was not friendly, did not smile, and seemed annoyed. When I asked for something, ex. refills, he walked away before I finished speaking. He was completely rude. A restaurant in this price range should have outstanding service. Unfortunately, that was not the case during this visit and it dampened the experience.

We enjoyed Bond 45 so much that we cancelled our reservations for the following evening and went back to have my now favorite drink called the Bond Cup and a few appetizers at the bar. When the general manager, John, heard that we had canceled to stay with them, he personally came to us with 2 glasses of champagne to thank us for choosing to stay with them 2 nights in a row. And it didn’t stop there. He then sent out some delicious caprese salad and meatballs and ended our meal with cheesecake (which I had ordered the night before and loved). The staff are amazing! Our server Friday night was outstanding and Saturday night while we sat at the bar, we got to know the bartenders and enjoyed the intimate setting. Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful people. We will be back!

Shared a nice dinner w friends on the outside terrace area, enjoyed delicious food (the open faced lasagna and the chicken parm were winners at the table) and very nice service. The bread was a little disappointing but the cocktails made up for it. Absolutely no room for dessert...we had leftovers for the next 1.5 days!

I came to the establishment for the happy hour special, which is only offered at the bar. I didn’t not find that out until I was already seated by the waiter. The service and food was overall good. The server was well knowledgeable of menu items and recommendations. I had the ribeye steak, roasted potatoes.
