$40 for dried out veal parmesan; $36 for a dry filet mignon. The filet was cooked medium, but somehow, it was still dry. So many better place to choose from.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the theatre district. The food is very good-- the quality and the selections. We had the salmon, which was the freshest I have ever had in an Italian restaurant. And the pasta twists were so good, even my six year old niece, who is very picky about food, ate everything. That is in itself an accomplishment. The antipasto bar is wonderful and very fresh. The service is good but a bit slow, because they get so crowded. The space is big and decorated in an old style-- which makes you feel like you're out of New York. I would recommend it before going to a show, because they are right down the street from the major theatres.

Having eaten in 100's of restaurants in NYC, I don't think I've ever waited 15 minutes for a spoon for my at that point cold coffee and melted ice cream. Way too many better and less over priced places to choose from-ones that have silverware.

...but that's about all that was great (except for the crunchy, delicious, chocolate-covered toffee set out by the front of the restaurant, which I highly recommend you grab a nibble of on your way out!). The seafood pappardelle was nothing to shout about. The seafood was overcooked, the pasta was dry, and there was barely any sauce. The seafood risotto fared no better. I prefer my risotto with a creamy sauce. This is the first place I have ever tried it with a tomato-based sauce, and I have to say, I didn't even know that was an option. Well, it won't be an option for me ever again. I did not like this dish. As for the veal, the sauce was delicious, but the veal itself was rather chewy. Way overpriced! The calamari & shrimp appetizer was pretty standard, but as per the title of this entry, the burrata mozzarella caprese is ridiculously good. It is the freshest, creamiest, most decadent mozzarella I have ever had. It is so soft, you don't even have to use a knife to cut through it. I would go back just for that!....but that is the only thing I would go back for. It also gets quite loud, so not a good place for conversation.

Won't be going back here anytime soon. Food was just OK, but to spend that much money on Pasta is ridiculous. Theater district or not, definitely not worth it. Sorry folks, my personal opinion there are so many fine Italian restaurants in the area - keep on going and pass this one by.

Are we in a recession? I know the space is big and the rent is ridiculous... but the prices at this place were skyhigh! So not worth what we ate or ordered. The waiter was extremely rude and rushed us through our entire meal. There are so many better restaurants in the theatre district without spending almost 30.00 on pasta and sauce. I was quite disappointed with Bond 45 and will not return anytime soon.

I've been to Bond 45 three times now. All three times I've gotten the wrong app and the wrong entree. Not sure why, but that's consistent. The waiter is always very apologetic and nice about it, but to consistently always get the wrong food is pretty annoying.
