Bondir Concord Ratings and Reviews
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.

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.

Dined here for the first time. Brought another couple with us. Server was very knowledgeable about the wine and beer choices and each of the menu items. Two of us ordered appetizers. When they arrived, so did complimentary mini cups of soup for the two that did not--very nice touch. We ordered four different entrees--veal prime rib, scallops, monkfish, and burger. All were declared delicious. Desserts are not to be missed--portions on the smaller side but excellent flavors. We may go back just to have more vanilla bourbon ice cream!

The food has always been exceptional at Bondir/Concord and the space has a cozy and sophisticated feel with a fireplace and exposed brick walls. However, until recently the menu set-up has been confusing and off-putting. Previously all the ingredients were listed in a very wordy, lengthy fashion and it was almost impossible to know what the main ingredient was or what category of food it was. Now the menu has been reorganized from what I would describe as a "Tastings" format to a more traditional appetizer and main course set-up which I find much easier to order from. Also, a highlighted word at the beginning of each menu item now makes it easier to understand what the dish actually is. With this ordering stress factor now gone, I plan to visit Bondir much more often.

I love Bondir Concord and am happy my friends are also fans now. It was fairly quiet the night we were there to celebrate a birthday and catch up in the midst of our busy lives. Jocelyn is a wonderfully caring, attentive, informative waitress who set the tone from the moment we walked in. Bonus was meeting Jason who was cooking in Concord that evening. His food is amazing on all levels - variety, creativity, presentation, taste - and it was an honor to meet him personally.
Our dishes included the roasted local pasture-raised chicken, monkfish, Bondir burger and sweet potato tart. All excellent.
We had to have dessert since it was a birthday celebration. Again we were wowed, especially when we learned that Jason creates the desserts and bakes the bread in addition to cooking. No pastry chef here. We loved all the desserts. The ices and creams stood out for us though. We couldn't get enough of the pear sassafras sorbet and the garden sorel sherbet.
My friends and I will return and I will continue to bring people to Bondir.

We started our meal with two glasses of Cava. There's no better way to prepare taste buds.
I have been here many times and I am never disappointed, whether it be for lunch or dinner. The staff is truly special ensuring that you feel warmly welcomed. I had the monkfish and it was simply delicious, perfectly prepared. My wife had the sweet potato tart; she smiled the entire time as she consumed every bit of it.
We ended our meal with a fantastic cheese plate along with two glasses of port.
Kudos to Jason Bond, you are truly talented and we are so fortunate to have you in Concord.

Delicious charcuterie with unique accompaniments, homemade cavatelli to die for, perfect pan roasted tuna, and celestial citrus tart.
Friendly and attentive service included great wine recommendation.
Definitely a place we will return to.

It was our anniversary and we had been looking forward to another amazing meal at Bondir. When we arrived, the menu had changed (no more prix fixe tasting option on the menu) and we were seated very close to another couple who ended up being very loud. I told the waitress that I was disappointed they didn't have the Prix Fixe any more and she let me know that they could still do a tasting-type option with smaller plates if we were interested in that. She also let the hostess know that the seating wasn't what we were hoping for for our anniversary (had put that on the reservation) and they promptly changed our table, giving us a choice of 2 other options! SO happy with staff and amazing food, as always!

Terrific lunch. Enjoyed the prix fixe selections very much. Ploughman's board explodes - a taste adventure. Oopsie Doosie gin cocktail started us off the right way. Very good service, a chic/cozy/comfortable setting, and not a bank breaker by any means. We highly recommend Bondir.
