This was our first time here and I have to admit I was a little nervous as I was perusing the menu online. My husband is a steak and potatoes man, simple but flavorful! We were wonderfully surprised. The garlic custard with apple and pear was my starter I didn't want to share even a bite it was fabulous. The... More

The food and service are nice- not outstanding but quite nice for a suburban restaurant. I do recommend as all 4 of us enjoyed our dinner

It was time for 80 Thoreau's annual Corn and Tomato prix fixe menu and, once again, it was not to be missed. Creative, flavorful, beautiful presented, expertly served. This really is a favorite restaurant in the area, and always wonderful.

Creative dishes from appetizers to desert, local farm ingredients, nice presentations and good service are the hallmarks of Thoreau 80. We arrived on time for dinner on a Saturday evening and were promptly seated. We were pleased with everything we ordered. Waitstaff service was just perfect; at each stage of the meal from the moment we were seated to the... More

Delicious gourmet food, in an attractive setting, but unfortunately it is so noisy at popular dinner hours that I spoiled my enjoyment.

80 Thoreau has an intriguing location on the second floor of a commuter rail station. The station itself is an attractive yellow, and there seems to be ample parking on the street and in an adjacent parking lot. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance (don’t take the fire escape first!), but we emerged into a very pleasant... More

Sadly true. Great location on the commuter rail for Boston visitors to come out and see Concord. Lincoln had a similar problem and the restaurant there closed. Hopefully the next owners will fix this.

80 Thoreau always delivers. We go to 80 Thoreau at least once ot twice a month and the level of service is always exceptional, whether dining at the bar or in the dining room. The bar has a great vibe, watching Isabel, Evan, and Lee create outstanding libations, perfectly crafted. The food is outstanding, from their amazing burger to any... More

We visited 80 Thoreau during restaurant week and we were delighted with this special menu. We've been many other times as well and enjoyed the regular menu. Our party of four tried all different appetizers, entrees and desserts and all were exceptional. We're lucky to have 80 Thoreau nearby!
