I think that in all of new york this is by far the best sushi I have had and I eat a lot of sushi. I have a habit of always ordering Spicy Tuna and Eel Avocado to be the decision makers for how good the restaurant is. Both of these were not only so fresh, but they melt in your mouth. I have also had a bottle of their custom made spicy sake, and it was very good. My negative review... the people who work there can be rude and think they are above you. I can't stand that. And the food takes about 25-30 minutes to get to your table. That might be because of how busy it is. Their biggest negative... the price... wow its very expensive, very new york.

As a true sushi connoisseur, i have to say that bondst is absolutely fantastic. Although they don't have the most innovative rolls (ala sushi samba), they have normal sushi fare elevated to the next level. fish is exceedingly fresh and flavorful, the rolls are bar none the tastiest in the city, cocktails and dessert are delish, and ambience is intimate but social (the restaurant is a cute multi-leveled brownstone). Perfect for a date or a group dinner. however, depending on the night, you may have to watch out for attitude laden waitresses, but who cares when you're eating the best sushi in the city?!

Here's a tip for all of you who can't seem to get the menu right: there are three things that are a must to order at Bond Street. 1. Seabass Skewers, 2. Spicy Tuna rolls, 3. Lychee martinis - this is dessert. Love this place and everyone I take raves about it!

I had heard so much about Bond Street, so I was excited to check it out. The soft shell crab appetizer (a special) was nice, and the mushroom soup was fantastic. But the sushi was sub par; in fact, I left several pieces uneaten which I've never done before. We all enjoy sushi in the city often, and although the atmosphere was great, I won't be back. Maybe I went on an off night...

I have done all the big names and this place beats all of them. Best eel, and of course the most important.... best spicy tuna by far. Toro tartar is incredible. If you eat at the sushi bar, you will have a great experience with the sushi masters behind the bar. Desserts are worth trying but not the greatest.

Went there late sat. night with reservations... amazing food, some of the most interesting sushi and sauces I've ever had! Atmosphere was cool and intimate but definitely not amazing... service was fast and courteous, servers didn't bother you constantly... highly recommend for great sushi and intimate atmosphere!

Went last saturday for 6:30 reservation. Was seated promptly. Waitress was extremely polite, and knew the menu well when I asked her to explain some items. Had seaweed salad, a few rolls and the bass - chilean was better than the black bass, but altogether the food was amazing. Even the desserts (riccota cup) were delicious. Would def. go back (although I did not foot the bill); aside from price, the only qualm I can think of was the lighting - they only use candles and it's actually too dim.
