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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

Bond 45 is a restaurant that provides great attentive service. Biaggio the manager is most accomodating and graciuos.

The food is excellent. the burratta appetizer was perfect The chicken parm is their signature dish and rightly so.... it is the best we had ever had.

The only issue is noise level in the main indoor dining room is loud (not the riverview rooms) . This was a business dinner and it was difficult to hear the conversation at normal speaking levels.

The food was really amazing. Our server was polite but clearly very new and in need of additional training. He did things like waste water all over the table while pouring and never cleaned it up. He took away flatware and did not replace without prompting. In addition the other staff and manager on site stood around gossiping and eating out on the dining floor. The manager served cookies without using tongues and the servers ate from the tray using their fingers. I have been here before and the waiters were very polished. This was pretty bad.

Usually amazing! Had a reservation and I think they forgot about us. After we finally got sat ,we waited about twenty minutes before our waiter came to our table. He didn't even come to check on us after he took our order. Had to flagged him down to get drinks. Unacceptable for an expensive meal. We were there for about two and a half hours

John Edward was the manager on duty and I can't really describe what he did for us!! All what I can say that it was amazing very high 5 stars service and they all went above and beyond!!
I'll definitely take my out of town guests there again and I'll do special occasions there too as because of the beautiful interior, wonderful service and amazing food!!
Highly recommend the fillet mignon and the chicken parmagiana!!

The server was outstanding, I am very sad that I did not grab her name. We had a group of 7 and one of the meats didn’t come out as ordered, she immediately brought the manager who was outstanding solving the problem. Great emphasis on customer service and very friendly. Thank you to both and glad we met a new Italian friend!
