I like this place and the sushi generally is very good. However, the service is often just adequate. This is a shame given the above average prices. Tonight, I went with my wife and two grown children for Father’s Day. When we arrived, we were shown to a table for four against the wall. There was a larger table set for four in the middle of the room. I asked if we could have the larger table in the middle. The hostess hesitated and muttered something about having other reservations that night but she did say that she would check. After about five minutes, the floor manager came over and told us that he had another reservation for that table so we sat down and enjoyed our dinner and racked up a $500 bill for the four of us. Nobody ever sat at the other table and there were several other open tables for four and six throughout the restaurant. I understand that sometimes tables are held for good customers, but this was very arbitrary and insulting. I have spend thousands at this place and it did not mean anything. Not a way to build customer loyalty.
This was my first time at BONDST. The service was very good and the food was excellent. I'd go back.
Lychee martini has no alcohol. Tiny overpriced portions. Just not goo anymore. Used to be good
Horrible hostess and service. Very overpriced, will never go back again.
Incredible service - I have been to many high end restaurants and yet have come to a new level of attentiveness, friendliness and knowledge.
Great food - stay to the recommended dishes
Coolness factor and ambience lend themselves to lingering
We ordered a bottle of Wine that was reasonably priced, however the waiter kept pouring the wine over our glasses onto the table. We had to flag him down to try and place our order. The OTORO surprisingly was very chewy and flavorless. The noodles with Tempura were awful.
The best Japanese restaurant in NYC. Period.
Was very very good overall. We were not told in advance about lack of gas, and due to that there were some dishes not available, but besides that it was excellent.
Disappointing. Some very average sushi (spicy tuna roll actually made my girlfriend gag!), which took an age to arrive. Drinks were poor - flat gin & tonics + white wine not properly chilled. Evening only saved by reasonable ambience and a waiter who worked hard to make up for the kitchen's short comings. Wouldn't recommend it.
10$ for a dab of fresh wasabi.
8$ for in house filtered water not even a sealed bottle
350$ check for 2 adults and 2 kids. Only 1 cocktail ordered.
Pricing is way out of control ...
food was great not exceptional
Excellent food. Long wait for the table despite the reservation. Noise level very high even for NY - barely possible to hear each other.
Was a great experience!!! The food was fantastic. The weak point was the price, very expensive.
Food is amazing! Quality is always to notch 😍
Wonderful! Fresh delicious
Amazing sushi. Loved the more classic sushi options on the menu than some of the more fusion items they are known for like the tart. Amazing service
Lovely restaurant though the entrance is a put off as it is a regular entrance door to an apartment complex. Menu is interesting and quite varied with multiple options to chose from. Sushi was the highlight of the meal. We ordered from the cold, hot appetizers and entree as well. Everything was nice, but nothing was outstanding or memorable. The same can be said for the dessert.
Overall was a very nice evening, staff was attentive and efficient but it is not a place we would return to for the food.
Celebrated my girlfriends birthday. It was a nice place with excellent food. However wouldn’t recommended it if you’re trying to have a romantic dinner
I was greeted at the front by a gentleman who attended me 15 mins after my reservation. He asked that Emmy party go to the second floor where we would dine in. A staff member in the second floor sat us down in a spacious, clean table. The room was rather dark but it made the environment a lot more relaxing. The food was creative, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. Overall I had a pleasant stay but I would ask that the staff throw a few smiles at us once in a while. The serious faces don’t feel welcoming.
Too expensive for everyday
Amazing. A+++ always
Fantastic food with excellent service. Staff very knowledgeable when asked, but not pushy.
The food is really amazing. Nothong bad to say except the noise
Fabulous meal. Out waiter Finley was so attentive. The food was so good, sake recs were flawless. It was our anniversary and we are so happy we came. A+. Thank you!!
Food was EXCELLENT! Only sorry I didn’t take time to sit at the upstairs bar! Can’t wait to come back.
Big eyed Tuna Tart needs to be on EVERYONE’s table!
Super cool joint. Ate at a table near the Sushi bar. Our only disappointment was to learn there was a downstairs bar that was more lounge-y and music that served sushi there as well (less 'entree's) which may have been a better fit. No less, the dining room was well enough and next time we may opt for the oontz-oontz scene downstairs.
We sat on the bar, the barman, Tom, is incredibly great on drinks as well as his food suggestions. The result, I opted by never moving to a table and took a 3hr+ dinner at the bar. AWESOME.
Hands down the best food experience on the planet.
We love it here! It just gets better and better!
Loved it!! Amazing food! Great staff!
This used to be a favorite of mine. My husband & I revisited recently and it did not live up to the hype we had in our heads. After dropping $300 there on ok sashimi (with the exception of 1 amazingly delicious piece of tuna), we don't ever need to go back.
Muy bueno, pero no todos los platos son parejos. Ubicación interesante y ambiente muy bueno.
An NYC favorite!! ALL of the tuna options are unbelievable! Energetic vibe, great service and amazing food!
Nice atmosphere but over-priced and not very accommodating for special requests.
We loved the tuna crispy rice roll so much we ordered it twice. I really enjoyed the Toro Scallion roll. Wish I had ordered the unfiltered sake.
I've never written a review before, but my dining experience was so spectacular it would be doing the restaurant a disservice if I did not. My waitress was friendly, attentive and took the time to help me and my date select each item we ordered from the menu. I was pleasantly surprised after each course arrived, every dish was better than the next. Exceptional food and service, I would recommend to anyone.
Food and ambience was great but unfortunately had to to wait 40 minutes to get seated !
Front desk lovely
Had to wait 30 minutes
