 (New York Area)·Dined 10 hours ago

This place is worth every minute waited, every dollar spent, and every ounce of hype. I took a friend from China here who is regularly unimpressed with NY dining (felt eh about Eleven Madison), and he loved it!!

The kakiage inanawa (seafood tempura) noodles were insane. Almost like fish ‘n chips from Japan; the broth was perfection, and the seafood tempura came as a pancake. Perfect for sharing or solo. We also loved the grilled wagyu steak. It came sizzling on a dish, and cooked to perfection on a bed of kimchi and root vegetables.

For the main, I cannot emphasize enough how incredible the Chilean sea bass was. Oh my god. Best in the city, hands down. I know this is what BondSt is known for, so you may want to be unique and order something different, but you’re missing out if you haven’t tried this. Just perfect.

Dessert was inventive and beautiful! Special, really. The ricotta cup sounds odd, and it was, but I don’t regret ordering it. Wouldn’t recommend because parts of the parfait were still frozen, so they haven’t quite nailed the textures and temperatures, but the concept was there.

Overall, a gem of a fusion restaurant, with amazing cocktails, vivacious servers, and a foolproof menu. Will be back soon!

Food was amazing, the bartender on the first floor really king and not snobby at all! It was a bit too loud while you‘re eating. I liked the idea that there is a lounge flour and where the music is louder as well the bar is bigger!

I spent New year's Eve at Bondst with my family, my father is Japanese and travels often to Japan, he said "this sushi is better than the ones I've tried in Tokyo".

The unaghi niguiri was just awesome, also the blue fin tuna and the mochi green tea ice cream.

I highly recommend this place, we had such an amazing dinner!

My husband and I have been coming to Bondst for 15 years. The food never has disappointed us, it’s always delicious. We live in Bethpage and do not mind the drive, that’s how amazing it is. My 9 year old daughter is obsessed with the spicy crispy shrimp! She gets her own order when we bring her. Spicy tuna roll is the best I have ever had and I love sushi! Thank you Bondst you are the best😍❤️

Enjoyed food immensely, nice atmosphere and wait staff was very attentive. I ordered the sea bass and it was delicious and the steamed vegetables were a perfect accompaniment. Very nice wine selection, we had the Pinot Noir from Oregon (bottle only). Celebrating my friend’s birthday and she truly enjoyed it!

We come to Bond Street three times a year. It never disappoints. The food is amazing. The tuna tataki is to die for. It is not cheap by any means. But worth every penny. Definitely a must when in New York City.

Was overall realty pleased with the food and service. The broiled Chilean sea bass, chicken dumplings, and octopus were some highlights. Decent cocktails but nothing to write home about. Same for dessert overall, although the banana tarte tatin was really nice.

Given how similar upmarket sushi-places can be, BondSt has fallen behind the times when compared to the likes of Nobu, and even Koi. The portions are smaller than both for no good reason, and the server was haughty.

Wine list was great and sesame shrimp roll was phenomenal, but overall, you're better off going to one of the above. More bang for your buck.

Absolutely amazing food every time we go! Our favorite restaurant in the world, and we have been going for 19 years (since it opened) and never been disappointed.

I recommend sitting at the sushi counter, best experience chatting with the Sushi chefs. The food is fresh, creative and always superbly served. I can’t find enough words to say how much we enjoy BondSt

AMAZING as always! I've been several times already and BOND ST simply NEVER disappoints. It's always very busy, no matter what day you come, service is EXCEPTIONAL (very professional, friendly, discreet, seriously top notch), and the food is just 100%! So worth the money -- I will say that yes, it is expensive, but if you're looking for truly authentic & good quality Japanese, this is it. This time we came on a Monday evening and were seated in the back area by the kitchen and it's been my favorite experience so far. Was amazing seeing the chefs work & interact and there was a guest at the bar who celebrated his birthday and when they brought out the birthday cake all the chefs stopped working and sang "happy birthday" and it was truly heartfelt and so energetic, really great! Our waiter was amazing, food was amazing, everything was top notch & truly perfect. Will always recommend!

Little loud, little tight, the food took a little while to come out, the service comped 2 drinks. Besides that, the food was excellent, every single course was on point not one slip, highly recommend if you are into food. Cocktails and saki was very good, dessert was good. Overall I would highly recommend bondst if you don't mind the tighter space and some noise.

Terrific service. Food was quite good, but one dish was inedible. Server removed from our bill without us asking, which was nice. The problem was the crowd - loud, rude, and crude. It was the absolute stereotype of rich, disconnected, inauthentic 20 and 30 somethings.

My husband and I️ had our first date here and continue to go back as we live in the neighborhood. I️ wouldn’t say it’s my number 1 or 2 for nigiri/sashimi but the menu is creative and offers a lot more than just sushi. it’s up there with one of my favorite dining experiences.

I have been to bond st. Sushi before and had a wonderful experience. Today however, that was not the case.

While the food was delicious, everything else was terrible. When we arrived we went straight upstairs to the main dining area, instead of checking in at the lounge on the 1st floor. It was my understanding that the restaurant was on the 2nd floor while the lounge was on the 1st floor. Last time I went here, they told me that the lounge is a separate experience and reservations have to be booked specifically for the lounge area, so this time (knowing that) we went straight upstairs. Which is what we thought was what we were supposed to do. When we got upstairs we were greeted by the most unpleasant woman who told us that we had to go back downstairs to the lounge to check in. I told her we had a reservation in the restaurant and she said that we needed to go back downstairs because she didn't know where our table would be.

We get downstairs and end up waiting for 30 minutes past our reservation time. They finally tell us our table is ready upstairs-what do you know our table WAS upstairs, like I had said.

When we finally sit down we had to ask for someone to take our order because it was taking so long. They ended up spilling food on my mom's coat, and they forgot one of my entrees yet still charged us for it.

At the end of our meal I asked to speak with the manager to let her know about our experience. She could have cared less. She actually used the phrase "If you choose to come back" and was very defensive.

I have been a manager for the past year and I have also never written a review of a restaurant in my life. But my experience here was so off-putting that I wanted to write this review.

I don't believe I will return to Bond St. Sushi.
