Bond 45 Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good. I indicated on the Open Table reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. A host came over with birthday champagne but my wife was in the rest room. He said he’d be back when she returned but he left us hanging. That was my only disappointment.
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
The food is very good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. I certainly recommend making reservations well in advance if you have theatre tickets. I had reservations and was seated immediately (at 5:45 for a 6:00 reservation). When we left at 7:15 there was a long wait line. I will definitely go again.
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.
