“Great Antipasti & location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

If you are looking for a nice restaurant located in Times Square that is not a typical busy tourist eatery that only has a menu full of deep fried/battered foods then this is the best place for you.

We came here 2 years ago (came by it by accident) and wanted to return on our recent trip. The restaurant is set in an old fashioned way which add's charm to the place. The antipasti is delicious and the pizza's are great.
The waiter is good at recommending food and topping up our drinks yet at times I was unsure if he was being grumpy or just joking around.

Overall, out of all the tourist restaurants located in Times Square, this is by far my favourite.

“Convenient to Theatres”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Excellent prefixe lunch. Part of the Fireman Group. We eat here often because of its convenience to Broadway Theatre. Italian food and great bar. Expensive but good for special events. Took our granddaughter for her birthday and she loved it. They had a birthday cupcake for her. A winner.

“Food Good, Service Not So Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Our family of 7 had Christmas dinner at Bond 45. The food was excellent; possibly the best New York steak that I have ever eaten. The service, on the other hand, was so-so. I know the servers are always busy during the holiday season, but we had to ask several times to have our water pitchers and iced tea refilled. Our hors d'oeuvres and dessert were delicious.

“Great spot near Times Square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Stopped in for Lunch before the theatre and it was great. Interesting memu with some unusual dishes. The salads were outstanding and prices were decent for NYC and service was decent as well. We told our waiter we were tight for time and he did a great job serving us promptly. The dining room was nice and the tables were spaced properly so you were not sitting on top of each other. Overall, a nice spot with an interesting menu with an Italian flair.

“Perfectly Done Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Our first visit to this restaurant happened by accident. We actually just stopped by for a drink. David, the bartender, is our neighbor and told us about it. He made a great martini for me and Manhattan for my husband. We watched how friendly he was to all his patrons. As we enjoyed our drinks the smell of the steaks got to us and we decided to get a table. It was a busy time but we were lucky. The waiter was also friendly and courteous. We both had ribeye steaks with grilled asparagus. The bill was a little pricey but it was my birthday and really no more than any other good Steakhouse in Manhattan. More importantly, our steaks were done to perfection. Will surely be going there again.
