Everything was amazing. We had tickets for a show and they got us in and out quickly but still gave us an unbelievable experience.

It is crowded but they sat us in a perfect booth. My mother and I were thoroughly pleased with our meal and service and saw a 2pm matinee show right next door. You can’t beat the location and it is the perfect place for lunch before a show!

So happy we got to checkout Bond 45. The restaurant is amazing, we were very happy with our meal. I know things are rough in terms of staffing so I try to be very forgiving here however sadly our service was on the poor side. Sad but true. That said I would go back.

I was a little disappointed with our dining experience last night. I've been to Bond 45 several times and something was missing. I thought the menu was very limited but maybe I'm just forgetting that's how it has always been. Our server was ok but not one of my favorites. We ordered the grilled octopus and it was delicious but the portion was small and it was chopped up - I've never had grilled octopus chopped? There is no bread for the table but you can order one of their two specialty breads. We ordered the garlic bread and it was yummy but come on how much does it cost to put a bread basket on the table - this is an Italian restaurant , right? I also ordered a double espresso and when the server brought it to the table it was a half filled espresso cup. I questioned her that this was a double and she assured me it was. If this was a double I can't imagine what a single is. Then the bill came and I saw the price for a glass of Montepulciano - $24.50 by the way this was the 5oz pour not the 8oz. I eat in all types of restaurants, take-out to fine dining and I've never paid almost $25 for a glass of wine. Not quite sure what's going on at Bond 45 but I won't be back soon.

1st time to this new iteration not knowing it was a "sister" location to the wonderful Fiorella's & Trattoria del Arte. Had their version of the Chicken, pepperoni Parmigiano. Delicious and huge. Had some this morning for breakfast! Cake was amazing.

Service was excellent. Covid-19 vaccine cards were checked at the door. Food was delicious. Personally I would have liked more cauliflower in the orrichiette dish. FYI, Tables were very close together.

I went for a late dinner right after watching the Tina Turner Musical. The host and server was very friendly. They did informed us the cooks leave at 11pm so we must place our food order soon. Other than that we was not rushed. Server was great. The food was spectacular. I will definitely come back again.

My daughter and I were in NY for the weekend to see Aladdin. We decided to try Bond 45 for dinner. Other than the play, THIS was the BEST decision we made this weekend!
The amazing food paled only in comparison to the staff who had served us. The moment we sat down, we were home. It felt like we were eating at Nonna’s house… from mouthwatering meatballs to the delightful limoncello!
Peter and Ronnie.. just like with family, we can’t wait to see you again! Grazie di tutto!

In looking for a pre-show restaurant, Bond 45 was consistently at the top of many lists, and after our dinner last Saturday I can see why. Everything you're looking for in a NYC restaurant can be found at Bond 45; great food, great service, great atmosphere. Bond 45 is a gem in the theatre district.

Unfortunately, the restaurant got overwhelming with the 2:00 Saturday theater crowd when the restaurant opened at Noon. The backed up the kitchen which probably cause several mixed up orders. Food quality was outstanding. The waiter did his best.. I would go again.

This is my first time back to the city since the pandemic lockdown. Bond45 didn't disappoint despite the additional time for checking each customer's vaccination card and photo ID. We were greeted with happy smiles and attended right away by the waitstaff and accommodated my special request of hot water with lemon instead of cold water. Fast service of delicious appetizers and entrees. Note though to request not too many pepperoni on chicken parmigiana. Finished just in time to watch a Broadway matinee show. My special guest/birthday celebrant was so impressed and very happy.

We were going to see Hamilton. We waited 30 mins for our drinks and appetizers. By the time we got our meal we asked for the check. The service was so slow we couldn’t have any dessert. We thought 2 hours would be enough for lunch but no, it wasn’t. Thank goodness the theater was just across the street!

Had fettuccine with red shrimp. It was incredibly tasty!! We shared a piece of cheesecake which was out of this world good. It was big enough for four people to share Our waiter was polite but rather standiff-ish Overall excellent dinner with an ok atmosphere. We would go there again and recommend it for others.

Everything was perfect until the dessert took a ridiculously long time to arrive. The food was fabulous, atmosphere was great and until dessert, the service was impeccable. I had the salmon and my husband had the bronzino. It only came with vegetables, which actually made it both healthy and delicious.

It was our girls trip and the service was amazing. The bartenders were funny,and my old fashioned was to die for! The waitress was funny and accommodating and they didn’t rush you at all. The spaghetti and meatballs were outstanding. the fried artichokes were so good along with the Gorgonzola bread! I will be back on my next visit! It was true New York Italian!
