Brought my daughter we to NYC to celebrate her 21st bday and had dinner at Bond 45. The service was exceptional, and the food was delicious. Best Chicken Parmesan we’ve ever had! But make sure you split it 1 it’s the size of your plate!

Loved the Restaurant week offerings and the old world aesthetic inside. Pinot I paired with the carbonara was excellent. Luis R was a very attentive server, and I only want to sit in his section when we return. Thanks for having us!

Had a drink at the bar while we waited for our friends to arrive since there was a delay with their train into NYC from NJ. The host, Joe, said not to worry at all about losing our table while we were at the bar. Our friends arrived and they had time for to start a drink there too before we were seated. Everything after that was excellent as well. Highly recommend this restaurant. The food was great and the service staff was very attentive.

We enjoyed our dining experience at Bond 45- an Italian restaurant. This NYC location across the street from the Marriott Marquis Hotel, where we were staying. Upon arriving, we were seated at a nice table and the waiter took our drink orders. The hostess suggested a white wine to accompany my dinner. Entrees were delicious- mine was Filet of Sole with asparagus. My friend had the Meatballs with spaghetti. We also had a special side of focaccia bread with a cheese topping. The menu offers many varied choices and the service is outstanding. Hope to return again at a future time.

They clearly don't have their act together (its Broadway, after all!) yet and are not up to their former level. Service was good, polite and pleasant but food was ill prepared and one dish was cold. We will go back because these are difficult times and everyone deserves a second chance.

It was a positive experience. Service was fabulous. My snapper was totally delicious with a glorious sauce and cooked perfectly. Joy’s carbonara spaghetti was not good. Chocolate mousse desert is a must. Cocktails are always required and the Negroni was well done.

Amazing!!! Amazing!!! Amazing!!! We ate dinner at Bond 45 before a show. The suggested 5:30 pm reservations had us finished by 7 pm, which gave us ample time to walk to our theater. The food was absolutely fabulous and the prices were comparable for New York City. We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and would come again the next time we are in town.

Welcome back Bond 45! It’s been a long time coming, but I can say that everything has improved 100%! The food was super fresh, the pepperoni pizza was perfect. The lasagna (I’ve been craving it!) was perfect. The drinks were perfect. Thank you for brewing fresh iced tea! Let’s hope that sticks. I can’t wait to enjoy Bond 45 after seeing a show.

Well situated for our after matinee dinner in the Theater Dist. (Across he street from Hamilton!) Suitable for casual to semi-formal dinners and large gatherings plus family friendly by the crowd we experienced. The food is accessible and familiar, American-Italian with some touches of french cuisine and american classics. I think they make their name on the over-the-top desserts. The wine list was Italian forward and adequate...appropriate for the level of food. We were treated very nicely by the staff as we were celebrating a special occasion. This may not sound like a stellar review but I think fair and I'll add that I would certainly dine there again.

The food is crazy overpriced and crazy under-seasoned (like it had absolutely no flavor - I don't know if there was a salt shortage or they just don't care.) If the food was good, I would have no issues paying the prices we did but it was poor quality and poorly prepared. The waiter was fine but very clearly did not want to be there and didn't really care if we enjoyed ourselves or the food. Also spotted a waiter wiping his nose in the dining room without taking any remedial action afterwards (washing his hands, hand sanitizer, etc.) The only high point was the bus boy who was excellent and did most of the waiter's job for him.

The food was good but we sat 40 minutes before even getting bread and at 7pm - we reminded the restaurant that we had a eight o’clock curtain. The manager assured us that they had mAny other theater goers and not to worry we would have plenty of time to eat. While we were served soon after- we did not have time for desert and coffee not truly a relaxing meal. Since we booked a 6:15 reservation for an eight o’clock curtain I do t feel as if this should have been an issue. The food was good and portions are easily split.

The food and ambiance were wonderful, as always. Our server was a bit slower than usual but we weren't in a hurry. We were also pleasantly surprised when another server showed up at our table with complimentary chocolate chip cookies, fresh out of the oven.

I always recommend Bond 45 to Broadway bound friends.

Service extremely attentive, beautiful setting, great location. Breakfast buffet needed a few little touches...was just okay....maybe bottomless mimosas, or flights of mimosas, not sure- I am a coffee drinker, but in a city of entertainment- the buffet needed something flashy, trendy, etc.

Of the chicken choices all were fried but one.
The waiter was good but busy and not as attentive as possible.
Prices were high for the quality of the food.
The dining room was spacious and had a great vibe.

Great location right across from Hamilton. I had read that they had more gluten free options than they did. Really only had seafood or steak available gluten free- no pasta. The chicken picata was a disappointment. Veggie bar not worth the money for a few asparagus and beets. Super cute downstairs tho, staff very nice and efficient. The chocolate mousse was AMAZING and the cheesecake equally divine Just a lot of money for an ok meal. ($350 for 2 adults and 1 teenager). Location is great tho

Service was fine. Food was overpriced & did not have much flavor. You are paying said prices because the restaurant is in Times Square. The presentations of the food & menu options, I could have made all of the dishes ordered by my party at home for 1/3 of the price of our total bill & we spent well over $200. First time going to this restaurant despite one being close to where I live. Doubt I’ll ever suggest going to the one locally. I wasn’t impressed. I’d go to Outback or Cheesecake Factory before going here if I’m looking for similar menu options, if not better. Also, the decor & seating made me feel like they were in a rush to open the restaurant or we’re running low on funds so they purchased the cliché wedding chairs that you see in the movies lol.
