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!
Red snapper tacos were delicious!
There likely won’t be a 2nd date but that’s more my fault than Bondst’s fault :)
Excellent food and great service....Thanks
Loved the food & the service was exceptional!
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!
They waitresses were slow and the food came out late. Also lost my wife favorite gloves. Not happy
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!
A l’occasion du 31/12, nous cherchions un restaurant avec menu normal. Tout était délicieux, et l’ambiance très chaleureuse.
One of my top 5 in town
