Bondir Concord Ratings and Reviews

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.

This is a great restaurant & the best in the area. The two or three course format from a diverse menu makes it simple to create a wonderful dining experience, and with a splendid wine selection, perfect. They have a full service bar, and great after-dinner wines & cordials to compliment and conclude a fantastic evening.

I keep trying to like Bondir but I haven't succeeded yet. I wish I could recommend eating here but after a lunch that took 2.5 hours (and didn't need to!) and in which the food was fine but not inspiring I just can't suggest to anyone that they should eat here. I've tried three times and left disappointed each time. I have heard that hanging out at the bar at night is great so maybe we'll give that a shot some evening. For lunch or dinner there are better options around.

Would give it another try. Everything was great - service, ambiance, bar, noise levels, but the food was inconsistent. Some of us like what we had, others were underwhelmed. Not ready to recommend but want to give it another shot.

So want this restaurant to suceed but I was disappointed. Previous a waiter had told me the burger was excellent. For 21$ should have been superb. Was almost raw and bland. Worse the staff did not seem to notice it was less than half eaten.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch at Bondir Concord. The space is very quaint and perfectly decorated. My friends and I had the tasting menus for lunch. We shared and everyone loved their food. The vegetarian grain burger was the biggest hit of the meal, through it was all tasty. Great service from beginning to end. Lovely atmosphere. Excited to come back for dinner!

I eat here often for lunch and dinner. I love the creativity of chef/owner Jason Bond and the tastiness of his food. You can always see him working in the open bar. Friendly service. Great ambience. I love the fireplace which has just been stoked up for the season. Terrific bar with Inventive cocktails. Desserts to die for. Whether eating with friends or alone at the bar, I have never been disappointed.

Our recent dinner at Bondir was wonderful. Our third time there and will return again. The seating was cozy, the food outstanding as always, and impeccable service. Special kudos to Connor for his attentiveness, warmth and knowledgeable service.

I was extremely happy with my dinner and consider Bondir to my favorite restaurant in Concord. The food was delicious and interesting and the ambience was very classy and modern cozy. I like the choice of rooms for dining - from casual bar, to a warm fireplace room to a more formal room. I would highly recommend Bondir. So happy they came to Concord.

Unfortunately on my first visit to Bondir I appeared to have gotten a form of food poisoning from something I ate there
I felt ill immediately after leaving the restaurant and it continued into the night
Wish I had a better experience to share

Bondir Concord is one of the most pleasant, "adult" dining experiences in Greater Boston. The room is beautiful, the menu thoughtful, and the service professional. It's also quite pricey and the portions tend to be small so it is more of a special occasion experience than one I'd visit frequently.

Great food! Be prepared to explore a sensuous meal. They do the best they can with the air conditioning system they have, no doubt. The back room is quiet. The food is an exploration in local tastes. Ceviche with eggplant sauce, salmon, just cooked, great 1/2 btl of Chablis, buckwheat noodles with tomato dashi, aromatic dish of pork sausage, well balanced Bon voyage! cocktail if you don't object to Pernod, grapefruit took the edge off. Nice Cava & Italian red by the glass. Delightful evening eating local food prepared in a creative way. If you sometimes enjoy eating at the "99" don't eat at Bondir. It's not for you.

The food was noticeably fresh and artfully curated and crafted. The wine was spectacular. Unfortunately, it just didn't hit all those high notes we were expecting. From the unusual rhubarb mignonette on the oysters to the petite entree portions, the highlight of the meal ended up being dessert, and I don't even remember what I got... I was really excited to try Bondir based on all the rave reviews, and it seemed like it was totally in my wheelhouse, but I can't see myself going back for more than a snack and drink while shopping in the cute town center.

Surly waitstaff. Empty restaurant on a Friday night was pretty telling. Beautiful space, but the food left s lot to be desired. Ice cold butter (made spreading difficult) thrown down on a plate with 4 butter knives under the bread. Did they forget to give them to us or was that how it was meant to be served. Salmon was way too fishy tasting, as if past when it should be served and left mainly uneaten. Steak frites were enjoyed.

I'm afraid we were very disappointed by the experience - a delightful restaurant, pretty good service, but the food was disappointing. The menu is improving, trying to simplify, but has not yet accomplished that feat. There is too much complexity, that unfortunately does not result in a good meal. I draw attention in particular to the house made sausage entree - far too dry, practically inedible, sadly trying too hard to deconstruct a dish which can take many delicious forms. Good food, imaginatively prepared and presented, does not have to be so complex and can be delicious.

We were very impressed with Bondir. The food, presentation and service were excellent. It's not only the best restauant in Concord, it may be the best restaurant to grace Concord since I was born there 52 years ago.
