Modern-American meets European fare at this Cambridge restaurant. Chef Jason Bond offers an impressive selection of European wines with his ever-changing menu. Going for a meal at Bondir is always a surprise, since the menu depends on the availability of local fresh ingredients.



  • Bondir emphasizes local and seasonal ingredients; nothing new about that. And yet the dishes on the constantly changing menu dont resemble anyone elses.
  • Each homespun dish is available in either a half or full portion. And then there's the fireplace, appealing staff, and intimate setting that make it feel like you're eating in grandma's country house.
  • Perfect spot for a romantic dinner with your sweetheart
  • do the half plates and taste it all
  • Get 3 x 1/2 entrees to share. Perfect tastings.
  • Deliciously created a vegan menu for me without a reservation on a Saturday. Beautiful service. Larger than expected portions.
  • No need for added bells and whistles at this inventive new Cambridge restaurant that caters to visiting and local foodies alike with unpretentious, fresh, and local food.
  • Bondir took what a lot of restaurants were already doing - the classed up, local, rootsy thing - managed to tighten the screws, add flourishes & still make it distinct & feel fresh. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Jason Bond doesnt proclaim anything, so when you go to his petite, year-old restaurant, the experience will catch you off-guard.
  • Wow. Finally an excellent restaurant in Cambridge that also has excellent dessert. If they have it, don't leave without the tangerine dream.
  • Ignore the wine pairing and explore the list; the lower end and by the glass selections are wonderful
  • Came here for a group dinner. Tasting menu was amazing. Really interesting and fresh without being pretentious.
  • Refined rustic atmosphere and a wide array of ingredients drawn upon make this a great date spot
  • Experience rather than diner, food of superb quality and decor/service to match
  • Rad seasonal tasting menu -- great veggies -- and warm, irreverent service.
