Description: Bond Street Social combines an original, upscale dining experience with a hip, lively social scene. Executive Chef Neill Howell's creative menu of "social plates," encourages social dining with a range of global dishes that fuse European, Latin, Asian and Chesapeake Bay cuisine. The menu is designed to appeal to a diner's desire to sample a variety of dishes to share amongst friends, as opposed to traditional course style dining. To enhance the dining experience, Bond Street Social offers "social drinks," brought to the table in glass infusion jars. In addition, Bond Street Social offers a wide selection of craft beer, wine and specialty cocktails.

“Could have been so much more...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

My company picked the most frugal food and bar packages to host their event for the 60 people attending what was supposed to be a dinner.
The food was really skimpy, which helped my diet, but not my hangover the next day.
The banquet room was small but I missed most of the dishes offered in the package because there were not enough servers going around with the already sparse amount of food. The actual restaurant was near empty, and some folks from our group actually went there to order full meals.
I think this place relies a lot on it's excellent location, and not so much the service or food it is offering. Would not recommend for a private event.

“Nothing special”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Utter disappointment. Over priced drinks paired with a bartender who didn't even know her beer selection Outdoor seating only for "real" diners left us disappointed and left inside and left out from enjoying the sunshine with just our drinks and an app Male bartender did make an effort to be congenial though One and done, we won't be back

“Food good. Service spotty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Loved the Old Bay Tater Tots and bottomless mimosas. Service was courteous but our server was MIA for long periods of time.

“More sizzle than steak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Ate here with a large family group. The small plate/sharing concept didn't really work for us. It's too hard to share properly on a long table. The service was attentive and decent, but there was a bit of a drag on the follow up after our fork and knife courses were served. The food sounds fantastic on the menus. Sadly the execution isn't really there for most dishes. The food was bland and average at best. The only real standouts were the duck spring rolls, and the chicken on the biscuits. But the biscuits weren't what I have learned to love in my 20 years living down south. My dish was called Bloody Mary Mussels. I was expecting a spicy tomatoey broth but got a watery garlicy one. It's hard to screw up mussels, and it was a decent dish, but was not something that evoked a Bloody Mary to me in the least.

The last disappointment was 'deconstructed cheesecake, tonight's feature was caramel apple.' Instead of any true deconstruction it was three small dishes of an apple cheesecake with a heavy hand on the mace or nutmeg in the apple. I would have expected one dish of crust, one of cheesecake, and one of apple filling if you were deconstructing this dish. Had a great time with family, we were well cared for by the server. I don't think I'll be back here though.

“Great girls night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I had been here many times to meet friends for drinks, but last night we had dinner here. As always the atmosphere was great but the food was awesome. I love small plates and sharing! The fish and chips is excellent and so are the mac and cheese bites!
