My dinner was inedible. The salmon did not taste fresh. However the wait staff was very responsive and were quick to take it off my bill. We had to wait on a long line to get seated. It felt like a pre theatre factory.

Whenever we are in NYC Bond 45 is our go-to restaurant for a pre-show meal be it lunch or dinner. The pounded, bone-in veal chop is the bomb!

The food sucked!!!! Sorry, but VERY disappointed ! Pasta doesn’t even come with your meal! Very expensive, especially since the food was horrible. The only good thing was the Chianti and the chocolate cake!!!

First time dining in new location of Bond 45. It’s a beautiful restaurant and food was excellent. Service was a little slow and had to remind the serving staff a couple times for more bread and for grated cheese. Also was not pleased that busboy left appetizer silverware on table.

But the food was so enjoyable, I will definitely be back again!

Great for central location in NYC - in the heart of the theater district. The service was wonderful. We were there to catch up with friends whom we hadn't seen in a while. We were able to take our time, order drinks, have great conversation, and never felt rushed. That being said, the price point is a bit high for what it is - lasagna $30, chicken parmigiana $32. All entrees come with the main dish only. All sides are ala carte. The wine list was excellent

We had a nice booth with plenty of room for 4. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. They made a special salad for us at our request. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and expertly explained “super Tuscany” wines to us. We also loved the short rib meatballs as an additional starter. Everything was handsomely plated and delicious - from pasta to veal to seafood. The cheesecake and chocolate cake were very generous and definitely shareable. They added a generous amount of strawberries and whipped cream, at our request, to the cake - greatly pleasing the requestor. Finally, good coffee and a nice selection of black and green teas. This was an excellent choice and we will definitely be coming back again!

Highly recommended!!

Server was not well educated on drink orders, and instead of saying he would ask the bartender, he just said, “I don’t know what that is.” Wasn’t very attentive. Went back in the morning for breakfast and waiter was great.

First time there, but not the last. They had a table available for our reservation, we were seated promptly. Our drink orders were delivered by a cheerful server who politely asked if we were on a schedule to catch a show. Nice touch for him to know and us not to worry about. Interesting menu, questions were asked and answered. Dinner arrived and we enjoyed our choices, our company, and a server who popped by to ensure we had a nice experience. We Did, and shall return.

Our first visit. We arrived a bit early and was a smaller party than our reservation but they accommodated us with no issue. Waitress service (unfortunately, I cannot recall her name) was excellent. The Prosciutto di Parma, burrata mozzarella & figs salad was very good. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Seared Scallops and I would highly recommend the Lasagna. Our only disappointment was the Tiramisu which was ordinary at best. Would definitely repeat.

We had a pre-theatre dinner and it was wonderful! My husband had the veal parm and it was probably the best he's ever had [next time I'll get that and we can both split it--large portion]. I had the crab cake with shrimp and it was absolutely delicious. The plate presented beautifully as well. Our waiter was friendly and helpful as was the hostess and bartender[s]. We went for an after theatre drink at Bond 45 twice during our stay in NYC. We will definitely go back to Bond 45 the next time we are in NYC!

My friend and I ate here between Part 1 and 2 of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Overall Bond 45 is not a bad place to eat in Times Square. As expected, the food was over-priced for quality, but service was good. The

Manhattan for him, martini for me. Both small for $16 each. It was our anniversary and when we were seated they gave us each a flute of champagne which was a nice touch. Meatball appetizer was delicious. We shared a rib eye steak that was supposed to come with bacon mashed potatoes but the were out of the mashed so gave us French fries instead. Since we said we'd be sharing we expected the steak would have been sliced in the kitchen but it wasn't. I had a very hard time slicing through the fat and the meat. Also, the fries took up 3/4 of the plate and the small steak just a corner. One of the best steaks I ever had was in their old location, so this was a disappointing experience.

I have eaten at this restaurant numerous times, so I knew what to expect. Unfortunately, what I got was a total disaster and made me question my judgement. The burata caprese was up to its usual standard and very creamy and enjoyable. The skillet lasagna however is what ruined the evening for me. The lasagna was served cold. It took some effort to find a waiter to complain. Unfortunately, my waiter was no where to be found so another waiter took command of the situation and removed the lasagna.

Rather than offer me a new one, they offered to reheat what they served me. Meanwhile while the reheat was going on our original waiter returned to the table to say "I heard you complained about the lasagna". No apologies. Just attitude.

The reheat job did warm the dish, but the dish now became a skillet of soupy noodles, melted cheese, and mush. I ate it because I was hungry, but frankly what should have been an enjoyable meal was a disaster.

The waiter did not apologize or even offer a free dessert to correct the situation.

On our way, I complained to the manager, but frankly he gave me the impression that he did not care about the disaster of a meal. Sadly I will have to remove this restaurant from my list of favorites.

Love the veal at Bond 45! Our service this time was a bit slow and our waiter was aloof and uninterested in part of our party. The food is great! The last time I went, maybe 8 years ago, I left with a better impression. Still good this time around - maybe our table wasn't as good; or the service; or the company, but I would definitely go back for the food!

Servie very warm and polite, food was excellent. The only thing I would say is that the wait staff could have come over a little sooner- we sat for a while before we had anyone come over to is, at it wasn’t a busy time-4pm.
They accommodated us as we were there an hour earlier than our resos. Food was delicious.

The reason to choose Bond 45 is its proximity to a theater you plan to attend. The extensive menu provides lots of options for lunch. We shared the 2 course price fixed lunch and had plenty of good food for $33.

Spend your money on dining at a good restaurant away from Times Square, and taking a taxi to the theater. This place is rushed, very mediocre food, noisy, crowded.

Actually I was very surprised how poor the service was and the food seemed mediocre when in the past it has been wonderful, fresh and tasty Our waiter rushed us because we has theatre but the restaurant never filled up, he refused to bring a fresh salt shaker after explaining that the crystals were too big for the holes and we should just keep shaking it. We had to open the container to get to the salt. No pepper on the table or brought to the table without asking, and the server brought the wrong order, after we agreed to accept he whipped it away saying he couldn't leave it. There was a long wait for the replacement salad which had "old" lettuce where the edges had browned beyond the color it should be, and had no flavor at all. We will be looking for another "go to" restaurant in the theatre district. Any recommendations?

I found the food to be excellent. My friend was not as fond of hers. Our waiter was not very friendly and a bit of a snob, though he was efficient. I will definitely return for the food but my friend won't.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking out of our show and crossing the street to your restaurant! And were pleasantly surprised as to how nice and peaceful your restaurant was as there is ample space to spread out and enjoy conversation that we could actually hear! BONUS was our meals were delicious and our waiter was awesome. Thank you for making our Hamilton experience even better!
