    Bondir has a creative menu with a variety of choices. No one in our party was disappointed. If you can't decide what to get, they offer half portions of everything. The servers were very knowledgable about the offerings. Overall a great experience.

    The food was beautiful to see, clever in concept, but ultimately disappointing in the eating. The unusual combinations occasionally worked, but more often failed. To summarize, the cuisine at Bondir is "fussy" and "precious." It is fit for foodies, but few else.

    I like the ability to be very flexible by ordering the half-size portions. However, they are so small they really can't be shared. And ordering multiple plates gets very expensive very quickly. Also, we were seated in the back room which has a lot of tables in a confined area. We were there fairly early and there were very few other diners in that room so the noise level was not a problem at all. However, if the room was full I think it would be very noisy.

    I had been to Bondir in Kendall Square and loved it, but hadn't visited the Concord branch - absolutely outstanding! Went for a birthday dinner with friends including a cordon bleu chef, and all of us were totally blown away by the food - but also by the spirit of the place. If you are someone who loves food and likes to be with people who love food, but who also love to make you feel welcome, this is the place for you. It's well worth the drive from the city if you live there - Boston and Cambridge are crammed with restaurants, but I often feel slightly disappointed going home, they can be a bit meh and mundane. Bondir is IT now: eclectic, lovely decor and atmosphere, servers who really know (and care) about food; wine & food to die for.

    Very trendy, in a good way, I felt like I learned a lot about new foods. We had to look up some of the unfamiliar ingredients we found on the online menu before we went. You need to be open-minded. The tuna I had looked very rare, but it was wonderful. Beautiful presentations and meticulous, creative combinations. All staff was friendly and relaxed. The space is lovely, fairly quiet when we went, Wednesday night.

    Bondir was delightful. Our group of 4 ate on a Monday night in Concord and were so pleasantly surprised. I had heard the name before, but thought it was perhaps an Indian restaurant! I looked further because we were going to be in Concord. Food was beautiful and beyond delicious. The tastes were unique, unusual, and so complex. Everything we tried worked beautifully. Love to find things out that I wouldn't try at home. And the ability to try half-orders fit our style perfectly. Terrific!

    This was our first visit to Bondir despite us living in Concord and having tried to get a reservation earlier. The food was spectacular with inventive combinations of tastes and textures. The small plates worked extremely well as my husband and I often split appetizers and entrees, so we got to try four different things rather than our usual two. My husband is more a tradionalist when it comes to food, so he was not quite as enamored as I was, but he admitted he would readily return in the near future. We were unsure which wine we wanted to order, so our server brought two bottles to the table and let us try each to help us decide which one we wanted. Don't wait for a special occasion to visit Bondir. Treat yourself soon.

    I rarely give a 5 star rating. We don't get out much i, but this was impressive. Creative & fresh menu & our waitress was able to explain every thing on the menu with pleasure. My date drinks beer & I had the her pair wines with each courses for me. Great casual feel, but professional people who love food, and is shows. I can't wait to go back again & again to see the menu change with the season. I'd like to make it a goal to go here monthly.

    I guess the question I have is why is the menu so difficult to understand. I have eaten at many fine restaurants all over the world and none needed as much explanation on what the ingredients were as this one. When the food arrived it was tasty but far from overwhelming. The service and attention were wonderful. They were having air-conditioning issues and it was very cold where we were seated and they happily were able to move us to another location which was still cool but not freezing. The price for 3 glasses of wine and 4 small plates with a shared dessert was about $56 each.

    We tried Bondir in Concord, MA for the first time for our 30th wedding anniversary. We found the staff very friendly, excellent service and atmosphere was very nice. You can order half portions of the entrees which allows us to try two entrees at the same time. Everything is farm to table from local farms! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my neighbors and friends. It was nice not to have to go to Boston for an excellent meal!

    I love the local, sustainably grown ingredients. The interior of the restaurant is lovely. Will was one of the best waiters I have EVER had. He gladly went through every dish on the menu and explained every ingredient to help me with avoiding gluten. Then he brought me the dessert menu and went through it too. :-)

    The food was good. However, things were really not working in the kitchen. The entrees took a very long time to come, with mine coming about an hour after my wife's, and even her's had been a long time....so we essentially ate separately...not the idea. They did drop off an unwanted different meal (fish not beef) in the meantime. So despite good food a negative experience. We are patient and flexible but this was out of bounds.

    The food was unusual, fresh, and exquisite. Presentation was a work of art. Bondir offers half-portions, but be warned, they are truly tiny. Unfortunately, our experience was marred by the inability to converse at a normal voice level and hear each other speak (hence the "fair" ambience rating). The acoustics are poor in the larger room: Bondir, please consider some acoustic retro-fitting. And we had asked for a quiet table!

    It was our first time at Bondir after a recommendation from a friend, and it did not disappoint. The service was fantastic. Our server was very helpful in explaining the menu and in answering questions about the dishes. We ordered a few starters, one being the salad of chicories and lettuce. It was wonderful. We ordered the flat iron beef, which was mouth watering and the chicken for our mains. The chicken was delicious as well. We will definitely be back!

    We have eaten at Bondir Concord many times before and while we do eat out at other places, both locally and in our travels, Bondir continues to be the place that we come back to like travelers reaching an oasis. Without fail, we receive a warm and sincere welcome back from every single one of the very exceptional people who work here. The ambiance is warm and cozy and special. The food is surprising and considered and beautiful and delicious. I have to admit that we are having rather a difficult time eating anywhere else, as no place else compares. Plus, now they serve lunch and from my one visit, it doesn't get any better.

    The menu is small, but had good selections for everyone in our party (vegetarians, picky eaters). What really sold it was the server, Will, who was friendly and informative. He explained the locally-sourced theme without sounding snobby. He also did a great job of explaining more obscure ingredients, like calaloo. The location was really nice too, a quick drive from Boston, plenty of street parking. Definitely going back!

    Having been to the Cambridge location a few times I was curious to try the Concord restaurant. The hostess was excellent. The ambiance is charming. The food and wine were outstanding. Our service was really poor for a restaurant of this caliber. He was charming in the beginning but never once came back to check on our meal, or ask if we wanted another glass of wine - which we did. Luckily some of the other staff were a bit more attentive and we flagged them down a few times to ask for more water, another round of drinks and eventually the check.
