The restaurant has moved since we last visited. Smaller space although with same look and feel. But food was not as good, pretty mediocre, at best. And the service was poor. The server gave my husband the wrong sandwich and when he realized it, the server didn't offer to change it or take it off the bill - he said he must have heard incorrectly. The sliced steak was too rare and flavorless. Unlike most steak houses, they did not have bernaise or other fresh sauce. They only had bottled steak or Worchester sauce.

Fantastic meal on our second visit. Short rib meatballs, Bolognese ravioli and scallops w/orzo were outstanding.

Delicious food, great service! Their chef special lasagna is a must. The veggie pizza was thin crust, light with loads of veggies. The meat ravioli with three meat sauce was scrumptious!

Made a reservation in advance. Seated immediately. Wait staff excellent. Ordered Filet Mignon which came with a side of some kind of potato pie. Presentation was disappointing. Just the meat and the potato. Not appealing but good. Fried artichokes excellent. Lasagna good.

I have been coming to Bond 45 for many years but have not been for two years. During that time the restaurant has moved location and is nothing like the original. The ambience has become noisey and rushed, the menu has been considerably cut down and the food sadly is nowhere near what it used to be. This is a great shame and I will not be returning.

We visited Bond 45 the last time we were in New York many years ago. It was an amazing experience. Sadly, our return visit is something we hope we can soon forget.

The menu is completely different. Fewer Italian choices. The chicken piccata was tough and flavorless. Spend your hard earned dollar some place else.

We had a late afternoon reservation. Ambiance was cosy. Service was peculiarly slow, but that wasn't a problem since we were happy to take our time. The mousse was a decadent and delicious dessert.

The food at Bond 45 is excellent. We have tried a number of dishes and they are all excellent to outstanding. However, the service this last time we visited was horrific. The utensils and glasses were dirty, the replacements were dirty; it took a third set to get it right. The waiting was completely inattentive with the multiple waiters that served us rushing to the next table before we finished our sentence. Given that the food is so good, we will give the restaurant one more chance.

First time eating here and it did not disappoint! The food was excellent and just enough for a portion size. Our waiter could have been a little more attentive. It was very loud and difficult to hear. But the decor was nice. Would absolutely return again

Waiter boarded on rude and wasn’t helped. There were raisins in out French toast and there wasn’t suppose to be. Ruined the meal. Also the breakfast potatoes were spicy. Couldn’t eat them.

Excellent food and courteous service. Because it was too crowed we had to wait a little to get seated but it was worth the wait. Must recommend!

Given worst table downstairs next to bar. Constantly crashing into others due to overcrowding Chicken pepperoni parm was overcooked and tough. Used to be our favorite place. Now we will never return. Treated like garbage in a place that is going downhill fast. Was going to have dinner party here but now going anywhere else. Wake up or your next move will be to bankruptcy court

After reading the reviews, I expected a much better restaurant. The server made some strange remarks. The food was average. I was disappointed and won't return.

A friend and I had a pre-show reservation. Food was excellent, but the service ended up being a little frenetic. Sal B. was very good up until we had to ask for our check. Took so long we were worried we be late for the show.

We came with about 15 people, one table had a great experience, the other was very disappointed. They waited twice as long for the food and ours was on time. Their orders were incorrect, our group had a good experience and the food was delicious

It is terrible that “pre-theater” meals in NYC are totally absent of any quality. This is no exception. The chicken piccata was the worst ever. Ribolita looked like it had been previously eaten. The wedding soup was so salty. Service was poor...our server never returned to ask about our dinner and when ordering, strongly suggested an up charge for our wine.
The only reason these restaurants survive is because they are in the theater district.

They put us in the basement in a back area. No ambiance and very cold with a draft even though they tried to fix it.

Salmon was great, linguine clam sauce was disappointing, barely any flavor (especially for price). Service was great and we were in and out which was important since we had a play.
