After trying many of NYC highly acclaimed sushi joints I can confidently say that BondSt. is in a league of its own. Nothing compares with it in terms of the quality and the creativity used in all of the sushi creations that are made here. I almost exclusively come to BondSt. for sushi after having dined there a year ago. I find that the service is pretty good and that the decor is a little too dark for my taste. However any other drawbacks that might be there are offset by the heavenly sushi. If you are a sushi-phile than BondSt. is a place that you MUST try.

Great spot to see your favorite celebrity.... The food was superb, just lacked the professionalism expected while paying such expensive tabs. Only reason to go back would be to see and be seen.

Pretty place, very nicely presented sushi and the sushi chefs were very friendly indeed, but it was overly expensive for what you get. I'd not go there again.

I love the sauces they serve with the Sushi! They are the best. I wish the service was more attentive. Not too expensive either. Overall, excellent.

Wouldn't it be great if somehow fantastic Japanese food like you find in Nobu could be combined with amazing sushi like you find, oh say, in Sushi Seki? BondSt certainly strives for it, if not exactly reaching it. The food was presented very artistically, with an exactness that makes it so appealing. Most dishes were delicious, although an appetizer like Maguro Tataki should really be served as an amuse, it so miniscule. Yes, yes, always quality over quantity, but come on, really! Both sushi and rolls were very fresh and tasty, but not on a level that you find in Seki or Gari. The wine list has a good selection with many wines available by the glass, which is a pleasant addition to the Japanese cusine. The atmosphere was quite pleasant, dark and quiet, and the wait staff was attentive and prompt. The only regret is that high price of many dishes prevent you from ordering more, and one leaves with a sense that more should have been offered for the value.

Very fresh fish, but quality of the basics not any better than Tomoe or Yama (on a good day) which are both not half the price and twice the piece size. However, I do go to BondSt. for choice. Very few other places will serve 8 kinds of hamachi in addition to 4 kinds of salmon, and live(!) shellfish. Whoever mentioned the mushroom soup is right, it's very very good (for something similar, try Enoki Butter at Village Yokocho). Also highly recommend the black cod and soft shell crab (a perennial special, I think). I went with a vegetarian friend (no fish) who said that veggie sushi was exceptional. Service was attentive and near-invisible, although the waiter tried to push a more expensive sake than what we ordered. The restaurant was definitely too loud for coherent talking -- a good place to take a date you don't want to be talking to or a business associate. For dessert, I recommend the lychee panna cotta or chocolate fondue for two, if you are into that sort of thing.

Most definately the best sushi in town. Bartenders and waitresses are super nice. We recommend the downstairs lounge if your young, trendy, and hip. Make sure to order the Seabass screwer, spicy tuna avocado and crunchy roll and the rock shrimp--ALL TO DIE FOR. Also, if you like fruity drinks try their Sweet Sakatini...Overall its amazing. The only downfall is the bathroom, which is super small...:)~
