A word from Menton
Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch’s Fort Point fine dining restaurant, is the final concept to complete her Fort Point trifecta and joins neighbors Sportello and Drink. Located in FP3, the AIA award-winning luxury condominium complex, Menton radiates an understated elegance and offers several beautiful spaces to dine including the 60-seat dining room, a 12-seat Chef’s Table, and the 45-seat private dining room. The restaurant, a glamorous expression of fine dining, was designed by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz of C&J Katz and features a subtle palette of grays with touches of silver and black. The cuisine of Menton, an artful blend of French technique and Italian soul, displays Executive Chef Colin Lynch’s talent for precision, refinement, and visual artistry in the form of two menu options: a four-course prix-fixe and a seven-course chef’s tasting. Guests will relax and enjoy a carefully choreographed culinary experience under the direction of Chef Colin Lynch and GM Meredith Gallagher.

  • Beautiful Father's Day Dinner

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    We took my dad here for Father's day dinner and our experience was top notch. We came in for an early reservation (5:30) and it was very quiet in the dining room. By the time we were wrapping up it had gotten busier but the nose level stayed at a very comfortable level. We all opted for the four course prix fixe menu and left stuffed. The small pre-dinner bites were as amazing as each course. Each dish was beautifully presented and explained on serving by the waiter. Everyone was extremely friendly and we were well attended, but at the same time I did not at all feel like the waitstaff was overbearing or constantly waiting to swoop in - it was a perfect balance.

    This is the restaurant that you will want to go to for any special occasion or if you visit Boston. The service was amazing and the food was superb. Our group of three was there to celebrate my wife's birthday and we all left knowing that our experience dinning at Menton was very special. We ordered cocktails and they were delicious. I will make plans to dine there again, hopefully soon.

    My husband and I finally made it to Menton after several years of talking about it. Last night we celebrated our anniversary and to be brutally honest we thought it was good but not worth the cost. We didn't leave wishing we had never tried it but we won't have it high on our list to go back for a special occasion. The atmosphere was blah and the food choices were just okay. I am adventurous with odd combinations but I have to say my mouth was not craving another bite with any of my four courses. The food portions were fair and we did not leave hungry like we did at No. 9 Park. The wait staff was helpful and friendly.

    Very good. Not the French Laundry. Staff attention is very high but they try too hard…too many different people coming at you. The pre-dinner tastes came out too quickly…one on top of another. The chef’s tasting menu was good but the dishes too frequently were overpowered by one component. The wine pairings were weak.

    After reading reviews of this place and having dinner here we realize the establishment was under rated. One of the five best dining experiences we have ever had. Everything was as close to perfect as possible-the ambience, service, food and wine available. We were overwhelmed with the attention to detail of the kitchen and servers. This is definitely a place not to miss if you visit the City. It rivals any restaurant in New York (go Yankees!), Chicago or New Orleans.

    While some of our courses where excellent, other things fell short. It looked better than it tasted. The square piece or halibut with morel crust was a bit of a waste for both the fish and especially the morel! The gnocchi were fried, turned our to be just ok. While the desserts looked great the taste did not match the presentation. Yet other things such as the torchon of foie gras, beef and other things were fantastic. Overall the dinner was great but the food seems to be drifting a little while the wine and service continue to be of the highest level.

    The food was very good, but seemed to be more about presentation than substance - the "main ingredient" should be more than one or two bitefuls, the flourishes seemed to be the main attraction. The noise level made conversation difficult - a dining experience is about the total experience and the fact that the noise level was very high - the dining experience was diminished.

    It was my first time visiting Menton and I was impressed by the food and the service that we received. Most of the main dishes have two different preparations. I thought that was nice. However, I was a little disappointed when we left. We came for a celebration occasion and we did leave a note to the restaurant when we made the reservation through OpenTable. However, we didn't receive any special arrangement or surprise from the chef at the end.

    Presentation, ambience, and (nearly always) service were impeccable. The only awkward moment was while awaiting our seating (2nd group to arrive of 5) in the lounge area, cocktail menus were distributed to all, but no order was taken from us. Not a huge error, but it felt odd and I had my order ready. The rest of the evening (2hrs for the 5 course meal) was beautifully executed. Dish presentation is perfect and the flavors and textures are stunning. Side note: though I generally try to avoid eating much bread, saving room for other courses, their selection is appropriately small and worth a taste, particuarly the carmelized red onion roll.

    This was my second time at Menton. The first time we did the teasting menu which was spectacular and this time we went with prix fixe. This is so much more than a meal: the food is exquisite and beautifully presented and all the extras (amuses bouche) are a treat of course. It is expensive so for me it is a special occasion venue, but one that gives pleasure just in anticipation.

    Having eaten at other Barbara Lynch restaurants and having read reviews of Menton, we were very excited to try it. Knowing it was the only Relais & Chateaux property in Boston was another reason for us to make a trip into Boston for a special birthday dinner. It met all our expectations for extremely high quality and creative dishes, excellent service and wonderful wine pairings.

    The food was less than impressive while it was trying so hard to be. Of the 7 courses 2 were outstanding the rest were not. Sad to spend $350 for two with the overall food experience being that we commented that "the rolls were good". Seven people served us, one was just to put the wine glass on the table, so I the service was good.

    The eight entrees between my wife and me were nearly all excellent. Attention to detail, superb sauces and creative presentation enhanced our choices. Only part of one entree was sub par with some meat that should not have been served. The wine selection is quite good with outstanding Qupé Syrah available by the glass. The service was superb except for some confusion with my check where I was charged another table's much higher bill to my credit card.

    The tasting menu was great, almost every dish hit. It progressed nicely and each dish (of the ~15) was flavorful and inventive, with maybe one exception. While the staff was very professional, it was a bit hard to understand their description of each dish because of heavy accents - we stopped asking them to repeat themselves after a while. It actually took a few courses to get a glass of wine I had asked for, but they made up for this with a complementary digestif for my wife and I (we didn't complain at all, they took it upon themselves, which was appreciated). I love the location.

    Extensive and tres cher wine list. Service was excellent and never intrusive. Only critique was that when each course was served, and there are four with the pre- fix menu ( only option is pre- fix), the server gave a rote explanation of the preparation and selection -- it was impossible, however, to understand because the server spoke English so poorly. Not perfect score for ambience because car and truck headlights from street flash through large windows .

    While we went on a random Thursday, just because we had a night off and had wanted to go for quite some time, this place is probably most reserved for special occasions. We did see a lot of business groups out as well. Menu is either prix fixe or tasting. Both are exceptional. Wine list is actually a book and waiters know it front to back. Service is impeccable. .. unbelievable actually. If you're looking to impress, this is the place. One note, I felt somewhat under dressed in a nice sweater. Dresses and suits were standard there.
