Met with a smile and everyone was so nice and helpful from then on. Food was outstanding, cheese plate, burger (best around), pate, duck, etc. All good stuff, can't go wrong.

Our third visit and will return. The food and service was excellent. The mains were delivered on plates that were warmed and the food was delicious. Compared to other comparable restaurants in Concord I rate 80 Thoreau the best for food, service and ambience.

Prix fixe duck confit at the bar. What a wonderful idea, bluefish pate, duck confit and a glass of red wine. Best duck confit we have ever had and service was impeccable as always.
