This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants, which we visited first in 2011! We live in Virginia but when we're in NYC we always visit BONDST. The miso sea bass is simply the best and we love the big eye tuna tart. We tried the duck confit this time and it did not disappoint.

When I go to a place that offers a 32$ roll and I order it, I expect to be blown away by the presentation, flavours, and overall quality. This place seems to care more about how their dishes look Instagram than they do about what they put on the table for tangible guests to consume. The grilled wagyu skirt steak offering ate like the steak I buy from WholeFoods, the brussels sprouts were BURNT, and the presentation was poor! The shishito jalapeno margarita was out of balance and watered down. The waiter felt it necessary to keep "reminding" us that dishes take more than 15 minutes to prepare and that we should order as much as possible all at once. Their appetizers are pretty big portions. My friend ordered a udon soup to warm up and ended up with a huge serving including a pancake that limited his appetite for the rest of the meal. The appetiser salads were also big in size. I enjoyed the warm mushroom salad. I likely wouldn't recommend this place or come back on my own accord. We were able to make a 7pm reservation on NYE day (red flag?) and the place itself is pretty chic and was half filled with chic people.

Went with a group of eight and had a fantastic meal. Such great service, flavorful sushi. I ordered the seabass and it was delicious. And the cocktails were superb!

Haven’t been in years, but I was still impressed.

The food was absolutely spectacular, particularly the Hokkaido scallops. The food gras gyoza was intense. The service was great - not overly attentive but there when we needed it. It was a bit noisy at times for the dining room (as opposed to the lounge) but they took the music down a notch and things settled.

We sat at the sushi bar with a view to the back kitchen and the expeditor. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of a busy, well-oiled service. Oh, the food was outstanding, too. My favorites were the scallop roll with jalepeno and the spicy crab salad. We highly recommend BONDST!

Great atmosphere. Excellent food in general with a couple of misses. Avoid the tuna roll with smoked whatever —the smoke overpowers everything. Tuna tartlets are a WOW.

The food was horrible tonight.
The sushi was tasteless.
The rolls were mushy
They sat people on top of one another.
It was the worst meal I ever had there
Expensive and totally not worth it.

I had a nice dinner with friends from out of town but felt very rushed by the service staff and even though we didn’t take more than 1 and 1/2 to dine including appetizers and dessert…. felt constantly pressured by the staff to finish eating quickly. It’s really the only negative comment as the food was very good.

Food was good but felt overpriced generally. Maybe too “trendy” so people pay for ambiance and cache rather than focusing on excellent food and service?

Service was also a little weird. We tried to order the blue fin tuna and Szechuan yellowtail but the server cut us off, saying they were “acquired” tastes and we should really consider ordering this sort of “tuna on flatbread” thing they are known for. Well, we didn’t want that thing, we wanted the other ones. That put us off the original items we planned to order, and we ordered some other plates instead. Once we ordered, the waiter was surprised we didn’t order more and that our order was “light”. Well, it wouldn’t have been so light if you didn’t reject our initial choices.

Packed into a small room, tables too close together, way too much noise, we were essentially in the table next to ours conversation.

Our food took way too long, and was pretty pricey…with only 2 drinks total, the bill came to $285 before tip.
