I had an absolutely amazing experience! I love the food. One of the best places to eat in the city! Beautiful view of mass Ave. seating is usually quick, however, asked for a protein substitute and waitstaff seemed confused about the request. Crème brûlée crease cake is killer!

I had the pork chop entree which was cooked exactly the way I prefer it, medium rare. The wait staff are very kind and attentive but clearly, like so many restaurants today, FortyFive Degrees is understaffed; waitstaff are indeed hard working and from what I experienced, they are overworked and an additional bar tender is needed. I know from personal experience and observation, having been a waiter myself when I was in my 20s and 30s. We let our waiter know we appreciated him with a 30% gratuity.

We can always count on the sushi experience here to be wonderful. I've taken friends who live on a costal location here, and even they say it's the best ever. Happy to see that we can now bring our adult grandkids under 21!

The space of this restaurant was very warming, the service was excellent. However honestly the food wasnt good. The mashed potatoes were horrible and the garlic paremsian chicken was too salty. I do give a 5/5 on the sushi though

Enjoyed everything!! Just a comment for our waiter (red head, muscle-y guy mid-20’s). He was a great waiter however he is a close talker. We asked for his favorite suggestions and he leaned way into the table very close in our space. Same happened during his explanation of desserts. During a pandemic, it felt a little unsafe. But, even during non-pandemic times, it was too close. Really, he was awesome other than that, but it’s stuck with me. Glad to see your business is doing well. Deserved!!

Had a reservation during the NCAA tournament and was pleasantly surprised that it was not packed during the day and we were able to eat inside. My teenage daughter and her friends loved the sushi and the restaurant "vibe". Service was slow, considering there was only one other table seated.
