we all had sliced steak with arugula.
No one liked it.
The 2 ladies said it was too spicey.
Mine was chewy and not tasty.
The super Tuscan wine was good and do was the homemade chocolate

Food and service was great. We arrived 45 minutes late due to bad weather and gridlock and still were seated immediately. Great service with plenty of time to get to the theatre. We both had pasta dishes which were well prepared. Portions are ample and dessert chocolate mouse was delicious

The pre-fixe brunch was great! Three full sized courses, plus endless bellinis. Would recommend for a casual-dressy brunch!

Very poor quality food in attentive service. Waiter much too busy and forgetful. Pre-theater experience. Photos portray a much higher quality restaurant than this fast food pseudo-Italian.

Bond 45 has the most gracious servers in NYC-they are attentive and kind. I felt so taken care of last Sunday (at 5pm) when the restaurant was quite crowded but the waiter was very careful about serving and being sure that we enjoyed the pre theater dining experience.
Thank you to the manager, staff and service people for making it a super night.

Unisex bathroom does not work when you want to fix up your slip, but it was clean, this is the only reason I would not recommend Bond 45. Men zipping up their flys as they're walking by the sinks in front of females of all ages (young and older), not okay for us. Just to clarify, we were a diverse group in all respects.

The waiter claimed that the crab cakes were the best. I was disappointed bc it was more filling than crab. Don’t think I’ll be going back.

Wonderful luncheon - very good waitress and service. Only complaint is busboy kept taking our plates while other people still eating at table. Most annoying!!! Makes your dining companions uncomfortable they are not finished yet when your'e sitting with no plate. Finally had to tell him to stop!

The environment is very inviting and seats a large number of people. The areas are divided by a center bar so the dining areas are divided up into smaller areas, enabling conversation at the tables. The wait staff were efficient and the food was very tasty. They offer a pre-fixe luncheon menu that included and appetizer and entree.

We arrived almost an hour early for our reservation after seeing a show and the host was mildly abrupt with us, although we were willing to sit at the bar and wait, but then he found a table and was very accommodating. He seated us immediately at a lovely table and that was the extent of anything "bad" I could say. We ordered a salad for the table which was incredibly delicious with hazelnuts, strawberries and arugula, as well as meatballs for the table which were incredibly, melt in your mouth delicious. One person had spaghetti carbonara which he declared incredible, another had the antipasto bar, I had the seafood salad and the last in our party enjoyed the delmonico steak...cooked to perfection. We ate every morsel served to us. The bar menu was a little limited...no canadian whiskies and no Captain Morgan...but we found something we all enjoyed!! A birthday slice of strawberry cheesecake was brought out with 4 forks for us to enjoy and celebrate our dear friend. A totally enjoyable meal and wonderful evening; can't wait to return. One of the best meals we have had in New York City and we have had many!!

Service was terrible. The neighboring table sat down after us and got their food before we even got water. Had to call manager to have our orders taken and the food was cold when it finally arrived.

Waitress was horrible!!!!
Waitress offered chocolate chip cookies to the 3 tables around me & proceeded to turn her back on my table who also had finished dinner. Food was okay. It was better at old location. Noice level very loud.

We would recommend this restaurant with reservations, as follows- We were a group of 6 friends who came for a pre-theatre dinner. We had read that we should give ourselves 2 plus hours to make a show on time, and were happy we knew that ahead of time, since we needed the time. The food service was casually paced but in addition, our waiter had too many tables to attend to and was therefore too busy to look out for us. We had to ask for things from other service personnel that came by our table (like serving pieces for shared plates, knives for our meals and spoons for coffee). The shared Vegetable antipasto was delicious but our mains were fairly ordinary. We all said that if we came again, we might just order a vegetable antipasto and a pizza or pasta to share.

Service was fairly good, but crab cakes and shrimp dish were inedible! For $35 for entrees not a good value!
My dinner guest had Chicken Parmesan which was quite good. Maybe stay away from seafood or stick to basic Italian dishes.

This restaurant is in the heart of Times Square and the Theatre District. I think it was overpriced for the quality of the food and it felt like a tourist attraction. One of my friends orderd scallops and for $37 received 3 scallops!

Thr staff and service was above average - attentive and patient.

The food was below average and reheated. Fried artichokes should be cooked a la minute, not re-flashed. Cacio e pepe pasta was also reconstituted so cheese and sauce was coagulated and dry. Again, a pasta dish like that should be cooked a
la minute. Antipasti veg was tasty, though room temperature veg at $22, it's a ripoff.
