Bondir Cambridge is a tiny restaurant with 9 tables & 5 course Tasting Menu.

BONDIR RESTAURANT is located in a residential neighborhood in the center of Cambridge which is known for it's sense of community &pride in it's diversity-a neighborhood filled with murals, parks, and public gardens.
OUR CUISINE is based on a simple premise: The ingredients we use are a story about the people who produce them. The most expressive ingredients are the freshest, coming from the ocean or the field, directly to our door. Relationships - cultivated over the years through time spent with foragers, fishermen, farmers, ranchers - color the daily menu.
OUR SERVICE is the most important aspect of our job. We want to create a personalized evening for each guest.

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.

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.
Highly recommended!!

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!!

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 .

We had a fantastic evening at Bondir. The fixed menu was so much fun. Each course had so many flavors, was so interesting. It was delicious and fresh. The wine was excellent. The place is great because the food is top notch, but the restaurant is welcoming and warm, completely unpretentious. I would highly recommend it.

Small and cozy farm-to-table tasting menu haunt. Only one choice of menu, but the 8 courses were all yummy - great use of mushrooms and peas in the fluke dish; the rhubarb tart was the shining star of the meal.
