This was my first visit to BONDST. I must warn you: The Big Eye Tuna Tart will absolutely change your life. It's quite amazing! It's a very hip spot and the host was very charming and accommodating. The wait staff is a bit militant and cold but the food was expedited quickly. I was disappointed with the sushi rolls we ordered. They seemed really cold as if they had been made in advance. The Broiled Chilean Sea Bass was fantastic. I would definitely go back.

Fab restaurant we were recommended to visit by a NYC local. It did not disappoint. As New Zealanders it was fantastic to be able to visit somewhere off the well- trodden tourist track. Well worth the effort for the awesome food.

Very sophisticated Japanese restaurant. Relaxed with impeccable, pleasant, and informative service. A little more casual at the sushi bar and in the sushi bar room. Excellent selection of sake. An all-round classic that has stood the test of time.

Great service, quiet, and great place for date night. Food, however, was quite mediocre. Sushi was very overpriced, unimpressive, and not authentic. Over $120 for 4 nigiris, 2 rolls, and eggplant tapa.

Ate here while in NYC on business and it was so good we made coming back a priority while here on vacation. The Big Eye Tuna tarts and the Sea Bass are some of the best things I’ve eaten in Nee York and I’ve eaten here a good deal. Thanks to the staff for making my return visit with my wife equally memorable.

Bond St had delicious cocktails, and very good service. Now on the topic of sushi, I am a bit of a snob. Don't get me wrong, I had some great tasting toro and rolls...but for the price it was a little expensive. Bond St had a good selection of fish that was all fresh. They decorated some dishes with gold flakes and presented it clean, a little flashy but still simple. I will absolutely go back, but most likely for drinks with a side of sushi.

The food was lovely, the grill avocado was simple but very enjoyable, the sauce and the pumpkin seeds made the dish.
Quality of nigiri and sashimi was very good.
Service was a little slow, since the restaurant was full. But the staff made the effort to check with our table often.

Fortunate to eat early that day (Sunday) because Bond St got busy as we were dining. There was lots of staff taking care of us. Our waitress was patient as we took our time to order. Was impressed with wine, beer, liquor menu. The staff brought us the appetizers and entrees in a timely manner and changed our plates and utensils accordingly.
Big Eye Tuna and Red Snapper Taco were excellent. Pork Belly was very tasty and the Chilean Sea Bass was very well done. Surprised our Soft Shell Crab roll came out last but the roll was excellent. We also shared a Green Tea Crepe which we enjoyed with hot green tea.
Very enjoyable dinner

My husband and I had dinner here for the first time last night and had a positive experience overall. We both had the omakase, and the seven courses were artistically presented and delicious for the most part. It wasn't the best omakase we have had, but it was solid. The place is definitely a scene, and not really one that we enjoy being a part of. It seems to cater toward packs of young, 20-something-year-old females who are trying to live out their Sex and the City fantasies on their parents' dime. Reminiscent of Sushi Samba ten years ago. I wouldn't necessarily call it a romantic date spot, although the ambiance is dim and nicely decorated.

The only major damper on our experience was that they were out of the bottle of sake we had wanted, and the server ended up suggesting an alternative bottle that was double the price. We didn't realize this until the bill came, and we fully acknowledge that we should have paid closer attention to the listed price. When we brought it up to her, she got somewhat defensive and said "I didn't know you wanted it to be at the same price point." Fair enough, but a more seasoned server may have noted that the bottle was $150 versus the $75 bottle we originally ordered. She was a good server overall, but it was kind of a disappointing end to an otherwise enjoyable evening.

We probably will not return to BONDST given how many high-end Japanese restaurants there are in NYC that we haven't tried yet, but we wouldn't dissuade people from going here either.

Amazing birthday dinner. Each dish was a work of art and the flavors were unbelievable. Our highlights were the Pork belly, the Yellow tail sashimi, the Braised Duck soba noodle soup, and the scallop special. Do not leave without ordering the Ricotta Cup for dessert, it is life-changing.

The service was genuinely exceptional because it included everyone we came in contact with, not just one or two notable staff members. We had a third person join us unexpectedly, even though our reservation was for two. BONDST accommodated us immediately, with no attitude.
The food was incredible -- creative, fresh, beautifully presented, and delicious.

I'd been to the bar downstairs in the past, but I had no idea such an elegant, well-run restaurant existed upstairs, with an innovative and well-executed menu.
