Bondir Concord Ratings and Reviews

We had an amazing dinner for Valentine's Day. It was a fixed price menu with two choices in each category. So creative. So delicious. Chocolate in the beet salad, oh my! Love the atmosphere. NO TV! Yay! How refreshing.

This used to be one of my favorite local restaurants. Haven't been in a few months, and was hugely disappointed. Changed the format of the menu from small plates to traditional courses. Okay, bummed about that, but still would have been okay with it if quality remained the same. Unfortunately it didn't. Food was uninspired, boring, bland- opposite of what it used to be. And service was terrible to match- we sat for 25 min before waiter came to get drink orders, and that was the service we continued to receive all evening. Sad that Concord lost a great restaurant, I know I won't be back.

Everything was perfect: smooth red wine, delicious choice of cheeses for an appetizer, and tender, perfectly-cooked dinners. The cozy fireplace was also a nice touch on a cold night. Felt like I was back in the French countryside. So glad we went there.

Fine dining at it's best in Concord! You won't be disappointed...and if you are, check your palate!
We first went for their annual Robert Burns supper event which was fabulous. The most gourmet traditional Scottish supper we'll ever have. Lovely music, dance and poetry. Very tastefully done and a fun evening!
This time we had Sunday brunch. We chose the Prix Fixe menu however they also have a la carte.
To begin the corn flour dinner rolls were light and flavorful. He had for first course, Ploughman’s Lunch with Robinson Farm’s A Barndance, cornmeal Cracker, Preserves and Relishes from their Pantry - it was a feast to the eyes and a delight with every bite. My French Butter Pear Salad with Herbs, Vinaigrette, Petite Greens, Chèvre was crisp, nicely chilled and had a very light vinaigrette.
His second course, Pulled Smoked Beef Shank Sandwich with Swiss Cheese, House Dill Pickles, Dijon, Hand Cut Fries was moist and very tender. My Pan Seared Brandade with Roasted Celery Root, Broccoli and Shishito Peppers, Charred Corn Purée was amazing. A lightly seared cod with potato was so light and the colors on the plate made if even more appetizing.
We HAD to try a dessert...and OMG the Dark Chocolate Mousse House Made Chocolate Bark, Honey Graham Cracker, Strawberry-Red Wine Sorbet was AMAZing!
For anyone who cooks and likes to watch fine chefs on the Food Network...this is the type of food one would expect from a top chef. And that's exactly what, in my mind, Chef Jason Bond is, a TOP chef.
Yes, the rumors were verified by him that he will most likely close this location in a few months and he will continue on in the Cambridge location. So GO now and then go later to Cambridge...make a reservation its going to be packed!

Very disappointing. The steak frite was not cooked as ordered, the fries did not taste good, the cheese plate was a strange grouping of things piled on a plate that didn't go together. I have heard many good things about this restaurant so was surprised - perhaps they were having an off night. The atmosphere is nice; the fire in winter is cozy. I am unlikely to go back.
Sigh. We have been to Bondir in Concord ...
Sigh. We have been to Bondir in Concord three times and every time there has been a new way of organizing the menu. From split portions to prix fixe and now to a more traditional outline, the restaurant seems to be trying to get its footing. I eat for health and pleasure and I like a lot of vegetables. Bandir is a very meat intensive menu. The plates are beautiful, but the portion sizes vary quite a bit. A few lettuce leaves are fully composed feels disappointing for a salad, for instance. I ordered the venison sausage and it came as two large, somewhat dry discs, with a slice of purple cabbage and four very very tiny fingerling potatoes. The steak frites were more successful – the flavor was good and my husband loved the fries. The fries were he tie on the plate and I was left wondering if they had run out of fingerlings. It was just such a strange contrast. The chicken was sizeable but the vegetables surrounding it seemed more like garnishes.
Our server was lovely, the wine list is good, but I don't think we will return for dinner. Bondir I want you to survive - but you need to offer me more and they health and vegetable department.

Salad was uninspired, pate was good, scallops delicious but would have liked s more substantial starch with them. Drinks were good. Service was fine, not exceptional. Server didn't know specifics of charcuterie and that was strange considering it's not a huge menu.

Perfection is not a word one should use often.
But our latest meal, like all the others, was just that
from the moment Kate welcomed us at the door
thru every delicious bite of an usual but approachable meal.
Even the little things, like the baby lettuce salad, were flavorful.
How often do I eat out to find an oversalted, overdressed salad.
Salad at Bondir speaks for itself and allows the fine flavors of the food to emerge.
As for my vegetarian entre, I wouldn't know what all the spices were
that created a memorable meal, the memory of which has made me smile days later.
What a gem!

As always, great food. The only critique I would give is that some of the choices on the menu were not very interesting. However, both the duck and venison sausage were really good. Very friendly and helpful staff which made for a very pleasant dinner.

The food was over salted. There were limited choices on the menu and the food pairings were odd such a cabbage and scallops. This restaurant has potential to be better and should try to live up to the prices they are asking.

Inventive cuisine, creative recipes. Just not particularly capably cooked. Rubber cabbage leaves, vinegary mushroom dish. Good burgers, though, and beautiful front room. Loud and cold back room.

W e had a wonderful meal at Bondir. Everything was very fresh with unusual ingredients. We really appreciated that the chef was willing to adapt the sweet potato tart recipe to make it vegan. I have never had such flavorful roasted vegetables! Our waitress was very knowledgable and friendly. We will try to make it back before it closes.

We have had many good meals here until today
My wife and I had the brandade and it was so salty neither of us could eat more than half(yes I know one ingredient is salted fish but this was as salty as anything I'd ever eaten) My daughter had the squash plate it was also over salted. It was Sunday so perhaps the chef was off. Server offered to bring us something else but it didn't seem worth the wait

We have been to Bondir several times while visiting our daughter at school. The food has been consistently outstanding (love the charcuterie plate) and the service has been very cordial and attentive. Also, very helpful for handicap people.
