                        I have gone here 3-4 and every time the sushi has been fantastic. The service is also very good. It is a little on the expensive side in terms of price but if this is a place you go to only so often it is well worth the price.

                        Great food, decor and service. To me this is the best Japanese restaurant in town.
                        My recommendation is the sea bass. you MUST try it. Oh so good. I took many Japanese friends there and everybody loved it!!!! However this place is not for Sushi. They do better on traditional Japanese family dishes.

                        .

                        This is definitely one of the best sushi I have ever had. My boyfriend and I came here for their Restaurant Week menu and we were thrilled. Their ginger ale uses fresh ginger and it has a great kick to it.

                        So I picked their salad, Sea Bass, sashimi and chocolate cake for dessert for my pre-fix and my boyfriend got the miso soup, steak, rolls and lychee panna cotta. In addition, they gave us a big plate of edamame beans for free.

                        Their sashimi and sushi are very very fresh and supreme quality. I would say it is one of the best sushi I have ever had! The sea bass is well marinated and gosh the fish is so soft and tender. The steak on the other hand, is just average. I would recommend getting the sea bass for sure. The fried spicy shrimp on the side is also a must-have. It is similar to Chinese Walnut shrimp but spicy.

                        The dessert dishes are both amazing. The espresso ice cream is strong and the chocolate cake is warm with fudge inside. The lychee Panna Cotta is so so soft and full of flavor.

                        I fell in love with Bond St and I recommend everybody to try this place out.

                        Pros: High quality Sushi, great drinks

                        .

                        If you want the best Sushi in New York City, look no further. I've eaten at Bond Street approximately 10 times, and I have never been disappointed.

                        Their fish is incredibly high quality and fresh. Their rolls, sushi and traditional entrees are inventive. The presentation is gorgeous. The servers are extremely attentive. The drinks are terrific and innovative - Try the Sake Martini. The deserts are also fantastic.

                        Don't be afraid to sit at the Sushi bar rather than in the dining room. The sushi chefs are very entertaining. For those of you who are risk takers, they have something called "Chef's Choice".....it may be worth a try.

                        If you go, you must try the cod. It is incredible. Enjoy!!

                        Pros: Unbelievable Sushi, Rolls, Drinks, Deserts - INVENTIVE MENU

                        Cons: Not cheap....but well worth it.

                        I have been to Bond St a handful of times over the past few years, and always had a pretty good experience. However, after the terrible dining experience I had recently, I will not be returning. The portions seemed to have diminished in size considerably, and the Toro Tartare tasted so off my friend nor I could bother to finish it. The gem of the evening was that after asking for the waiter's advice for a bottle of sake, he brought the wrong bottle of sake (unbeknownst to us, as we told the waiter we were unfamiliar with sake) -- they proceeded to charge us for the more expensive bottle, and even brought out the unbelievably rude manager, which evidently made a scene in the small restaurant. I was appalled, and, needless to say, will not be returning.

                        .

                        I dined at Bond Street about a week ago, for starters, don't drink the coffee at Bond Street!!! Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted with a Starbucks coffee cup on the podium in plain sight and another being transferred into another glass by the bar area....... TACKY! We waited at the bar until our party was "complete" and noticed a lot of loitering around the front area while customers dining in the restaurant had to flag down their server by raising their hand. And then there were times that there wasn't anyone at the front and new customers that were coming in the restaurant were greeted by uh, no one. The bartender finally said hello and that someone would be right with them. The hostess twice put on lipstick right in front of us - seriously... We noticed a server walking from the back of the restaurant toward the front with her arms stretched in the air the entire way????? What the @#$&. I don't want to see your armpits. The dining experience was okay, I might go back for the food and drinks. Oh, and we weren't even thanked as we left the restaurant. The two hostesses at the front didn't even raise their eyes to see us leave, they were planted on the screen in front of them. Does the phrase first and last impressions ring a bell. For as classy as the place is supposed to be, Bond Street fell far short from what I expected.

                        Had dinner here on Friday night - it was packed! Definitely a popular destination for a Friday night dinner, although it seemed heavily populated with international tourists/businessmen. Not being able to decide on what to order, we went with the Bento dinner - a little sampling of everything. The sushi was delicious, as were the accompaniments included on the Bento. We ordered the Sake Sangria, which had little to no alcohol in it - disappointing for $14/glass. Dessert, which was included, was delicious. Just enough food to be full but not bursting at the seams. It is a bit pricey, but I suggest going all in for the food, and then choosing a pub on the Bowery for a drink or 2.

                        .

                        I honestly have no idea how this made the top of Citysearch's Best of list. We went for a friend's birthday last weekend. The server was apathetic at best. The food was okay - definitely not worth the price tag. Our sushi wasn't rolled properly - the pieces started falling apart almost as soon as the runner set our plates down. The lobster tempura roll that everyone was raving about was bland. In fact, with the exception of the sake steamed sea bass, all our food was bland. I ordered a lychee martini that did in fact have a lychee in the bottom of the glass but didn't taste anything like lychee. Overall, this place is a must-skip.

                        The Sushi is not bad but not great. There are soo many places that have fresher and tastier sushi. The ambiance is boring but I suppose matches traditional Japanese simple decor. Not a bad experience but not all that either

                        One of the best asian fusion restaurants I have ever been to! I'm an avid seafood/sushi restaurant attendee and this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My boyfriend really did his research when he took here for my birthday because I was in awe. Firstly, the service is impeccable. Although you may become a little confused on who exactly your server is, they are all extremely attentive. From pouring the wine, the drinks, the sake.. basically my water glass had the perfect amount of ice in it and was never below the half-way mark. We had the crispy sushi appetizer and the loberster tempura for appetizers. Absolutely amazing. The lobster was so fresh and tasty, cooked to perfection. In addition, we ordered 3 different sushi rolls which were savory and sweet as much as they were spicy in all the right places. All the plates were brought out one by one, and we never felt we were being rushed. The restaurant has an intelligent deisgn, it almost feels like you are waltzing into a bumping houseparty for young professionals. It does not look like your classic venue with unattractive neon lights starcasting the entire block. (aka sushi samba and its wannabes.) Although we didn't go on the 3rd floor, the 2nd floor is where we sat, which I'm sure is equally as impressive. The lounge downstairs was not too loud or overpacked, and you can definitely come here on a date or in a large group. Very chic and elegant. Well worth it, however I would recommend making reservations in advance.

                        Another really good restaurant in NoHo. Take a break from shopping and art galleries and visit this trendy downtown restaurant. The menu is Japanese with European and Asian influences and the entrees will tickle your taste buds. I am a lover of Chilean Sea Bass and they serve on skewers cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. No reservations here so be prepared to wait, but it is worth it! Recommended.

                        I took my husband to Bond St for his birthday dinner, both of us being extremely fond of Japanese food,we were really excited to try this restaurant. Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed. Although the food is fine, but hardly as creative and innovative as some reviews would lead you to believe, the overall attitude and pompeous atmosphere ruined our dinning experience.
                        We're not food snobs, but we have dinned at some of the city's top restaurants with far better food and far less attitude.
                        I believe what most ruined it for us was the rude service. Our server seemed bothered when we asked questions about the menu as well as when the meal was finished, instead of asking if we were ready for the bill, he just brought it over, dropped it down said thank you and walked off.
                        Although the decor is beautiful, there is nothing warm or welcoming about this restaurant.

                        Although the decor is beautiful, there is nothing warm or welcoming about this restaurant.

                        My friend reeaaaallly wanted to check this place out, and asked me to go with her...best decision i could make. I loved the food. the place is so cozy and cute. The service was perfect and very friendly.

                        It's a little pricey for me, but I won't knock it's score, I'd pay it if i could afford it.

                        We ate there last night with two other couples and if there is a "con" I don't know what it would be. I have always been impressed with Bond over the years but last night pushed me to write this review...simply an amazing all around experience. Our server was fabulous, the scene was hot (how do they constantly attract so many beautiful people?!) and the bottom line is the food was arguably the best I have ever enjoyed from apps to main to sushi. After our meal we went downstairs for a drink and the vibe was fun and our waitress attentive...not to mention hot. I hate to give 5 stars for anyone as I normally find something wrong - not this time. Great job.

                        Bond St. is a warm and relaxing place to bring clients. I brought a party of 10 clients unannounced one evening and the hostess accommodated us in no time. The crowd is hip, sophisticated and sheek, but be prepared to deal with a snotty wait staff.

We had an interesting experience in which another table of customers were rude and out of line. The wait staff, manager and security immediately got involved and handled the situation with respect and professionalism. The situation could have gotten ugly but didn't because Bond St. has a top notch staff. I would go back in a heartbeat.

                        I have been to many dinners at Bond St over the past 5 years, with satisfactory results, but have only recently dined at the bar in the downstairs lounge. I will never eat upstairs again.

                        The bartenders, warren and shawn, engineered my entire meal with smiles and charm and it ended up being my best new york sushi experience ever. I got the feeling of genuine care, which in my experience doesnt exist in the "trendy" new york restaunt scene.

                        Hands down the absolute best Japanese food/ dining experience in NYC! The service was friendly and prompt, & explained each dish as it was brought out. We decided to order the Chef's tasting menu - best decision we made! We got to sample many things on the menu on a smaller scale, and each dish was creative, beautiful and unbelieveably delicious! At our request, the chef added a lobster tempura roll to our sushi/sashimi sampler - it is so delicious! If you're not a fan of raw fish, try the NY Strip Steak with potato dice or Broiled Chilean Sea Bass marinated in saikyo miso - both are fantastic! This place is a scene, and does get packed. We had early reservations and avoided the rush but as we ate, the restaurant filled up. Will definitely be back soon!

                        Bond Street was disappointing. Overall, dinner was satisfying but did not live up to the price or hype. The sushi was top-quality but servings were small and generally uinspired. The toro marinated in bleu cheese was the only notable exception. Service was mediocre at best. Our server was slow and distracted but I think it was because the restaurant was simply understaffed. The biggest negative was our seating. On fairly short notice, I could only manage to score a reservation in the "casual dining room". The host assured me that many people prefer the "casual dining room" because it is more hip and fun. Let's call a spade a spade: I was seated in the kitchen.

                        Again, not bad but I get the feeling Bond Street has seen better days.

                        Saturday night, my girlfriends who were visiting from out of town and I decided to try Bond St. One of the girls had been there before and had a decent experience the previous time. We made reservations, and were seated almost immediately. From there, the night went downhill. I am a vegetarian and knew there were a few options on the menu for my diet. I ordered a miso soup, the seaweed salad, and vegetable tempura (and two lychee martinis). The food was mediocre, considering the price we were paying for it. Our bill for the four of us came out to $300, which we wouldn't have minded if the food was good. The worst was the experience we had with our waiter. After bringing me shrimp rolls (which I don't eat because of my being vegetarian), he did not even apologize when we alerted him of his mistake. He left the shrimp rolls there, and we assumed that because he didn't take them away upon bringing me my vegetable tempura, that they were complimentary because of his mistake with my order. However, I scooted the plate to the middle of the table, and the food went untouched, because my friends had already ordered enough for themselves. At the end of the dinner, we checked our bill and saw that he in fact charged us for the rolls. When we made clear his second mistake, he claimed he saw ME, the VEGETARIAN, eating them. Moreover, he got in my face and said I must have made a mistake when ordering, because "[He] is never wrong and [he] doesn't make mistakes." THE AUDACITY!! It was a $12 plate that we wouldn't have minded paying for had it been our own mistake. The waiter, though, did not apologize, act humble, or appease us in any way. We called the manager over and told her about how rude he was, and initially, she too, was unpleasant with us. I AM NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN! I highly recommend that you avoid this restaurant. It's absolutely miserable!!!!

                        This was our second trip to BondST. The first time, we left impressed by the food and emphatically underwhelmed by service. We were made to wait for 30 minutes despite reservations without an apology or an explanation, pushed around by patrons and servers in the miniscule bar area, but loved the sashimi and decided to go back. This time around, it was a long weekend, and the restaurant was practically empty, so no problem getting to the table. The food was average (avoid the sweet shrimp sushi and the yellowtail sashimi appetizer at all cost), but palatable. And then, my husband and i decided to step outside for a smoke (bad habit, perhaps, but something we do pretty much every time we go out to eat somewhere). I called the waiter over to let him know and he made us leave a credit card to be able to go outside for a smoke! Apparently, the few thousand bucks we left behind in merchandise (coats, purse, etc), were not guarantee enough we'd return. I have never felt this offended by a ridiculous policy at a pretentious restaurant before. I am not going back. Ever. Nor should you.

I had the pan-roasted monkfish cheeks with orange sauce and leek fondue, which melted in my mouth. For a main dish, the arctic char and fugu (blowfish) sashimi could not have been freshef if I'd been in the ocean and speared it myself. Finally, I had one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. It was banana milk chocolate dim sum with a sweet sour cream dipping sauce. Yes, it is a pricey meal, but it's not like they try and hide it. You know what you're in for, and it's totally worth it.

The same can be said by my four dining companions, two of whom are successful restaurateurs. Having to play tug-of-war with our still full plates, bottles and glasses with the twenty busboys (well, it seemed that many) who were sent to clear our table from about five minutes into our meal actually turned out to be the pleasant part of our service. Our waiter made himself unpleasant to the point where he actually stopped serving us when we dared to politely question why a half-full bottle of expensive sake was cleared away. Another waiter took over from that point--his idea of service was to slam down the bill in the middle of our table while the original waiter looked on. We had not yet asked for it. Then, because we were silly enough to think we could finish our drinks before we left, one of the hostesses came over to pointedly pick up each of our glasses and hold them up to the light before putting them back down on the table again. What the point of this exercise was except to annoy us I have no idea. We were astounded at the appalling service (I use the term loosely). The food may have been good but the service was so awful it is all we can remember. You couldn't pay any of us to go there again.

                        Nice and trendy, but very overpriced for sushi that is about the same as you can get from any st. marks place for about 1/10 of the price. overall had a good time, though our bill came out to be $190 for two ppl, and didnt even have that many dishes. but the downstairs area lounge for drinks is cute, and overall, pretty ppl to look at and not a bad place out on the town..

                        The food is surprisingly wonderful! I was expecting the same old "trendy spot but average food" formula, but Bond Street pulled through. It is, indeed, trendy (a per their downstairs venue), but the sushi is fresh and very very good. Their sake selection is also pretty decent. However, the food is on the pricey side, and there are comparably good sushi places at a better value. But if you're looking for atmosphere and quality sushi, and price is not an issue, go here...

                        I've been coming to Bond street for years and it has never let me down. You can either have an elegant dinner upstairs or hang in the lounge downstairs for something more casual. My favorite is the crunchy shrimp dish. It takes a lot for a restaurant to stay in NY for over 10 years and still pack inthe crowds so obviously Bond street must be doing something right. I would definitely not listen to all the negative reviews.

                        My friend has always wanted to try Bond Street - we went for his birthday on a Saturday. I called two weeks in advance for a 9 o'clock reservation, which was no problem. We arrived at 8:30 for a glass of champagne before we sat down to dinner, which was fine, although the bar is too small for the space and really overcrowded. Our table was ready around 9:30. We had amazing appetizers and mostly great sushi. Our waiter recommended the special toro roll, which we ordered. It was good, but at $26 was not nearly three times as good as anything else on the menu, and that was before we bit into a bone in three out of the six toro roll pieces. I mean...I eat sushi 2-3 times per week, and I have never...ever...encountered a bone...until now. We mentioned it to our waiter, who frankly did not seem overly concerned. He said he would tell the kitchen, and eventually came back with a really lame little petite four platter thingie (double lame since we had both already ordered dessert). The desserts were good - the sake creme brulee is amazing - but I had specifically mentioned that it was a birthday when I made the reservation, and then again when I confirmed the reservation that morning. So frankly, when my friend's dessert came out without a birthday flourish (no candle...no Happy Birthday written on the plate) I was really annoyed. The check was $200 for two people, and I really am happy to pay $200 for dinner - but you pay that kind of money so that it's perfect. And there were just way too many little screw-ups for the price. Our table was half an hour late, the waiter was indifferent at best, bones in the exorbitantly priced special sushi roll (still reeling), no candle, and, to add insult to injury, our waiter dropped the check at the same time as our desserts...really tacky. The crowd was very B&T to boot, so the trendy ambience was wasted. Altogether, there are many, many other places to drop your $200.

                        Pros: Sushi is amazingly fresh and at times outstanding

                        .

                        Came here the other night with my sister. Made a 7:00 reservation warlier in the day with no problem (although a later time was not available). Service is generally OK (nothing special). We sat in the back by the sushi bar but a table in the dim-lit front would have been nice for better atmosphere. We shared the Mixed Green salad which was big and good but again, nothing special. Ceviche trio was very small but very good (a tad salty). My sister had the Sea Bass which was really good and had great natural flavor. It is served with radish (?) in a sweet orange sauce. I had the lobster tempura roll which was good and the soba noodle and crab roll which was very good. The soba noodle roll is slightly warm which was nice. The crowd is a little bit older and the noise level was pretty low. It was an overall nice experience but i don't think i will be returning anytime soon just because i like places with a little more engery.

The sushi is always fresh and very tasty; the tempura is fried to perfection and the kobe beef is worth its weight in gold. Besides the ample seating (up and down stairs avail. for seating), the bar serves up some mean martinis and the ambiance is perfect for a romantic date or a fun night out with a group of friends or co-workers. I give this place two thumbs up in a "Z" formation!!!

I completely missed the place when i walked by because you have to go up the stairs like you're going to an apartment building (which it is). There is a lounge downstairs and restaurant upstairs. I would recommend fried shrimp with aioli sauce for appetizer..it was so good!!!!! I had a wide variety of sushi and i was very impressed. The sushi was phenomenal but the service was quite pathetic. The waitress never came to ask us if we need anything else. The food took forever. We were waiting for quite a while before we had to ask her again if the food is coming. I would recommend this place for good sushi.

                        I was seated by the sushi bar so it was very loud, but I didn't mind it because all the chefs there were very entertaining and friendly and everyone was happy. As appetizers I had their 'eel dice roll' which was cleverly made and tasted like heaven! Best sushi I've ever had thus far. The other appetizer I ordered was the fried sea bass that came with this spicy sauce which I wasn't too thrilled about. It tasted kinda soapy for some mysterious reason. As an entree I had their broiled chilean sea bass and it was so tasty! I loved it! For dessert I had this chocolate cake which I wasn't impressed with at all. I would definitely go back to try the other items on their menu. Service was just decent.

                        The irony is that despite everything on the menu [that we tried] being first rate, the 'basic' avocado salmon maki rolled in sesame seeds stands out as my favorite dish. For a chef to be able to make quintessential menu items memorable says something.

                        As for atmosphere, it's refreshing-- lighting, the wood floors, the upper and lower levels-- to have unpretentious chic.

                        I went there last night with a couple of friends and we were so disappointed with our waitress we seriously considered not tipping. She was unprepared to discuss the menu and recommend sake and overall extremely rude. Even the fact that she was pretty-it seems to be the only criteria they consider when hiring- didn't do much for her since she was so unfriendly and pretentious.
                        The food was okay. I recommend the crab cake and the seared tuna with foie gras for appetizers. The sushi and sashimi were not great so I would probably order a hot entrée instead.
                        I really like going to nice restaurants but would go for good service + good food over trendy anytime.

It was also good to see that the same guy (with short dark hair) is still there at the front door. It's that kind of consistency that has turned bondst. into a New York institution.
