“If you have to be at National Harbor, this place is a good bet, especially with a group”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Pricey, but that's what they got here, since you're held captive and away from a selection of diverse price options as you would be in an actual city.
Service was great, but they left off our salads. The asparagus was definitely fresh and well cooked. Prosciutto was outstanding, with the mozzarella appetizer. The sliders seemed to have a hint of msg and the meat wasn't all that special. The carbonara was great. The bread was spectacular.
If you're staying here in the complex, it should be good, otherwise get in the car and go to Old Town Alexandria, or find your way to DC for more inventive menu.

“So Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went to Bond 45 for dinner and it was excellent! All of the menu items are a la carte so things will add up! The good thing is there is enough for sharing so that should help. The food is great and there was nothing disappointing at all. The highlight was the tirimisu! It was so good I will come back just for desert! The servers were very helpful and knowledgable with wine pairings and suggestions. The view was great as sunset!

“Great Service average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The service at this place is over the top. After walking around on a Saturday night and being told that the wait was 45 minutes everywhere, my boyfriend and I finally settled on this place. We were told the wait was 30 minutes, but really it was more like 15 minutes which was fine. I had the Salmon steak, which was good, nothing stellar but good. The red velvet cake was very good as well. I do think the place was expensive for what you got. And there was a very loud group in the other room, which was disruptive, but not the fault of the place.

“Pricey but worth it”

The service was very good. Friendly , attentive staff even for a big group ( 11 people)Food is good, regular steakhouse menu. The fresh baked cookies at the end of the meal is a nice touch.

“Pricey but good view of the harbor.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We had dinner at Bond 45. All items are ala carte. We had the crab cakes at $35. The crab cakes were delicious. Four stalks of asparagus were $18. The view was beautiful and a band was playing below at the pier. A bit out of my price range...
