Bond 45 Ratings and Reviews
First time for us here, and we were treated like regulars despite 20 minutes late due to baby sitter. we called to warn we were running late, and were thanked for it by manager Jeff on arrival. seated immediately, and our waiter John was one of the best waiters we have ever had as native New Yorkers. We arrived 6:05 with 7 PM curtain 1 block away and were out before 6:55 without feeling rushed for a second. John gave us just enough attention to make sure we were out on time without hovering over us. He gave us tips on dishes that could take longer, noticed that one dish was taking longer than expected and gave us free coffee in return after assuring us we would still get out on time. The whole experience was one of those special unexpected NY restaurant experiences that instantly made this place one of our favorites. Everything from the focaccia bread to the cold antipasto to the house special entree tordelli bolognese was absolutely delicious!
We were seated 35 minutes after our reservation. Other diners had been waiting for 56 minutes. This is particularly unacceptable for a restaurant in the theater district where nearly everyone had tickets to a show. We were left with 15 minutes to inhale our meal
One Hour Wait WITH Reservations! When we arrived at Bond 45, we were forewarned by the massive number of people ALL claiming they had reservations AND theater tickets gathered throughout the front of the restaurant! The poor hostess nearly had to hide to get away from the sheer number of diners frantically asking her when they'd be seated! Although the staff kept offering the waiting diners glasses of Prosecco, there was NO excuse for their massive backload of diners, all without much of a choice as to where to go just an hour or two before curtain time. Bond 45 is in the theater district and knows full well that most diners with a 6 p.m. or 6:15 p.m.reservations are all trying to get to their 8 p.m. shows. The overbooking last night was inexcusable and no one in my party will ever return.
Food was delicious and beautifully prepared and served. Our waiter asked if we were going to the theater, which we were. He made sure our meal was served with plenty of time to enjoy it and make the curtain with time to spare. We highly recommend this restaurant.
I miss the elegance of the original Bond 45.
While the food was OK at best, the touristy set up of the dining room is very disappointing, extremely cramped, and loud. The clubby feel of the original restaurant is entirely gone. The bar upstairs is nothing in comparison to the retro original. The bar downstairs is interesting and probably the most successful element of the new Bond 45.
I would go back for a drink downstairs but only dine upstairs in a pinch.
Food was good. Didn't like our table jammed into a corner, trapped by 2 other tables. Wait staff couldn't get to us, everything had to be arm extended to hand to us and we had to hand everything back to them - very disappointing as we didn't feel like we were being served. We couldn't get out of our table without disturbing the other tables.
We went before seeing Hamilton as it is right across the street and service was excellent and attentive. We had the chicken parmigiana which is great, and the branzino also was very good and reasonably priced. Crowded but we had a good table out of the mayhem of the bar area. I do love the new digs compared to the old as far as ambiance. Will definitely go back!
First time to new location. We were seated downstairs, against back wall, next to a stairway exit, marked with exit signs, completely blocked with stacks of chairs. After we pointed out the fire hazard, a manager cleared the chairs. It might be a different experience upstairs, or even in the main dining area downstairs. But if you are being seated in the back room, downstairs, decline the table and leave. You will be better off ordering pizza through a window pizza joint a few doors down. Service was pretty bad, and food not much better. Napkin had a hole in it (a repaired hole, with some sort of edging to prevent the hole from getting bigger, but a hole). I was looking forward to reopening in new location, but I will not be back.
The new location is very nice and the restaurant is clean and lovely inside. We were seated downstairs, which was nice and cozy. It was not crowded but even with all the open tables, they still placed someone right behind us. Our server did not tell us the specials. We ordered the Italian Wedding Soup, which was very good, and the fried artichokes, which were very chewy, and for entrees we had the tortellini bolognese which was too salty and also had truffle oil, which was not mentioned in the description (it only said crimini mushrooms). The other entree we ordered was the spaghetti and meatballs, which had too much sauce but tasted good. We had barely finished the appetizers and the expediter was walking around with our entrees waiting for us to finish and had to tell someone to quickly clear our plates so they could place the entree -- too rushed! I feel the server should have asked us if we were in a hurry or not as this is an upscale restaurant and not everyone wants to rush through lunch. Halfway through the meal, the server came over and asked if I wanted pepper flakes. I said I did but by the time she brought them I was almost done. Someone brought over a pan of chocolate chocolate chip little cookies, which were freshly baked and very good. We did not get dessert. Overall, I was disappointed with the restaurant and am not likely to return.
Place was really nice, staff was wonderful and the good was great. If I could say any thing negative about it, it would be that for a $45 steak, I did honestly expect a better choice of side dishes beyond a simple salad or French fries ; some mixed vegetable and a baked potato would be more the norm of my personal experiences at other eateries in that regard. Otherwise , it was a really nice dining experience over-all. Our server was AMAZING, fast and courteous and very well versed in the menu and such.
It was great. It was very cold, and we have been welcomed earlier than our planned reservation. It was just unfortunate that we could not go see the drop ball for $200.00. I thought that we could go by ourselves, since the disclaimer stated that we might not be able to see the drop ball, although I should have read you will not be able to go see the drop ball, since there will be barricades on Broadway.
Thank you, very much, we had a great time with you.
We had an extraordinary new year's eve, Our hostess was charming with a heartwarming welcome, even if we arrived 2 hours before our reservation. We first sat at the bar to have a cocktail and wait for our table. We met 2 very nice ladies who came from Switzerland for new year's eve too. We received our table at the reserved time, had a seven course meal serve by our excellent server (Danny)we where handed hat's and flutes with our V.I.P. passes and after we where escorted to the ball drop just before midnight. This was our first time in New York and wish to relive this next year.Thank you for making this night memorable.
The food was good and the kitchen split a plate of bolognese for two people, which was nice. My waitress started off friendly and as the restaurant got busier and busier, she became rude. I had to ask for my cocktail and then for the glass of wine I had requested ahead of my entree being delivered.
We were seated upstairs (which is not NEARLY) as nice as the lower dining area and the draft was horrible. Even at the back of the restaurant we were getting hit with terrible gusts of air.
The antipasto bar looked absolutely amazing, but we did not partake.
