If you're looking for subtlety and beauty in a special meal, this is your place. The drama is subdued, but there's plenty to observe, appreciate, and savor. For example, we went Valentine's week, and every dish had a small nod to red, white, or pink without being overstated. Probably the most special moment for me was getting to taste an American chestnut. I had read for years that they are much sweeter and more flavorful than European ones, and now I can say that's true. The entire restaurant feels like a labor of love.
Chef Bond has created a true culinary Nirvana. Every aspect of the dining experience was superb.
Delicious meal. Enjoyed every course. While nothing in particularly amazed me. Everything was excellent and creative. Highly suggest for a special occasion.
Wonderful food, perfect service. Charming ambience, love the fireplace. Elegant without being pretentious.
Top notch in every conceivable way. A vision executed to perfection with what appeared to be effortless grace. Pampered sans pomposity. Could keep raving, such a perfect dining experience.
Lovely fixed menu restaurant in East Cambridge.
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and wish the service staff could acknowledge with a candle or somethinf
Every course on the prix fix was delicious. And knowing it is locally sourced makes it even better and we didn't leave too stuffed! The ambiance is cozy and it is easy to talk with your dining companions in a normal voice (not true in all restaurants these days.) But since this is a prix fix restaurant it is important for diners to take a look at the menu ahead of time and communicate with the restaurant if any of your party has diet restrictions. They will accommodate changes but advance notice makes it easier.
Excellent smoked duck with charred eggplant purée - sounds weird but it was delicious
Quaint and cozy place with creative fixed menu and very personable service. A special find in Cambridge!
It was good but they never got my opentable reservation which makes me question why I even bother with opentable.
Good environment and tasty food.
My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner celebrating a reunion with two close friends. The four of us have eaten at top-rated restaurants throughout the US and rate Bondir highly for the creativity, quality, and presentation of their tasting menu. The service was excellent and appropriately attentive but understated. Wine pairing choices were on point. We would highly recommend and will dine again at Bondir when visiting Boston area.
My husband and I visited Bondir on the first night of our trip to the Boston area. Chef Bond is to be commended for his outstanding menu that was both delicious and beautifully presented. He was able to accommodate my husband's dietary restrictions without skimping on taste, portion size, or presentation. Our server was very knowledgeable regarding the ingredients in each dish and was attentive while allowing us to enjoy our meal/conversation without interruption. Fabulous experience worth repeating!!
Beautiful space, unique dishes.
What a nice fine dining discovery in Cambridge. Each of chef Jason's prix fix menu selections were alive with flavor and perfectly presented. At $68 per person it is fairly priced for such quality and even the eclectic wines are generally inexpensive. This is a small, casual dining area in which Jason feverishly works solo in an adjacent kitchen. Together with a well informed and unassuming server this was a relaxed setting to enjoy fine dining.
The single prix fix menu option may be too limiting for some, but Chef unexpectedly whipped up a special potato side dish for one in our party that was a professed meat and potatoes only diner. Definitely recommended.
Bondir is a small, cozy, beautiful atmosphere for its lovely unique French cuisine. Upscale in menu, taste, wine & service but not snobby or pretentious. The chef is close by in the small kitchen preparing everything for your table. Just know that specific nights the menu is a $68/person prix fix (that was absolutely wonderful) but we were caught of guard by seeing the menu online. Delicious vegetarian entree as well .
Possibly the best meal I've had in many years. An amazing experience. Visually beautifula and complex flavors. A delicious meal that made my trip worthwhile. Service was excellent, and loved the relaxed atmosphere. Still thinking about the meal...
The Bastille Day Dinner showcased his talent and wisdom for procuring the best ingredients and letting them shine with a deft hand and judicious touch to enhance and transform them to something greater.
