Diner Reviews
  • " The food was good but definitely not worth the price for the rather small portions. All appetizers here are $21 and all entrees are $39 dollars. If we had just ordered an entree like we usually do when dining out we would have left hungry. This was the first restaurant that we had made a reservation with open table that we had to leave our credit card number. If we did not show up for our reservation the restaurant would have charged us $25 dollars Overall we were not impressed and with so many great restaurants in Boston we won't be back."

  • "We were from Toronto visiting Boston and our hotel 15 Beacon recommended this restaurant which was fabulous! They offered a tasting menu but as our reservation was 9pm we decide to instead go for the 3 course menu. It was fabulous food and fabulous service we will definitely return next time we are in Boston."

  • "I was a little apprehensive coming here after some recent turnover in bartenders and chefs. Those worries were put to rest with yet another absolutely fantastic experience at No.9. The agnolotti were little pillows of enjoyment. The prune stuffed gnocchi is keeping its top appetizer spot. The entrées were astounding (I paid the extra supplement for the Wagyu, and it was buttery and amazing) and the service, as is always the case at a Barbara Lynch place, was above and beyond wonderful."

  • "We loved our dinner at No 9 Park. The ambiance is elegant and understated, very relaxing. The food was really excellent, we had the three-course tasting menu, loved the lamb with eggplant and couscous, and the poached peach for dessert. Special thanks to the sommelier, who guided us really well. More detailed review on our website, but suffice to say we would definitely go back"

  • "Every time I have a family member visit me in Boston, I try to take them to No 9 Park. And they always leave this restaurant with the same comment: "Amazing!". The food is outstanding, the place is small and usually quiet, the service is always very good, the ambience is nice and not pretentious, ... And this time was no exception! I will definitely be back."

  • "We wanted a special place to dine with our friend from London and decided on No. 9 Park. We were seated at a window table overlooking the State House. Our main server, Joe, was fantastic, from suggesting a special cocktail to his knowledge of wines (especially Sicilian) to his enthusiasm for the fancy and well-executed menu. The food emphasizes flavor and presentation over quantity and delivers a memorable blend of tastes. The "extra" course of Australian black truffle on the prix-fixe menu was wonderful and generous. I even requested an extra roll to mop up the remaining sauce! Joe had assured me that the halibut would be flavorful and it was. All in all we enjoyed the experience and would look forward to returning. Thanks!"

  • "my first time at no 9 Park - excellent service from a most engaging team of waiting staff, and the food was beautifully presented. vut oh, that air conditioning meant my guest had to ask for TWO shawls in order not to feel like we were dining in a freezer. sort that, and it's a real winner"

  • "My wife picked No.9 Park for my Birthday dinner this year. This was my first time dining here. The food was extraordinary as was the service. We spent several minutes chatting with the host about food, wine, etc... he was very easy to chat with. The wait staff (all 5 of them!) were extremely knowledgeable and energetic throughout the experience. Both of us decided to go with the Chef's Tasting paired with the wine, well worth it. There were several very interesting wines from all corners of the globe. While the food and drink are pricey, I would highly recommend No.9 Park if it's in your budget."

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston, although priced for a special occasion. My only real complaint is that the wine list is abusively expensive."

  • "Most restaurants require all parties to a table to do the tasting menu if one party decides to do it. I was pleasantly surprised that they allowed my husband to enjoy the tasting menu while I partook in the prix fixe menu. My favorite dish was the Corn Agniolette, which was a burst of sweet and salty flavors. We each had one halibut dish and I thought the fish was a little overcooked, and mine was bland. My husband had the chocolate mousse, while I had the ricotta cheesecake for dessert. Both were tasty. The service was excellent - our waitress was really peppy and had great energy. She gave us great recommendations. It is expensive, and I enjoyed my meal, but honestly, I would try many other restaurants before coming back here."

  • "We had the Chef's Tasting with wine pairings (9 courses). While the wine pairings were incredible, a few of the dishes were only ok. We loved the gnocchi, foie gras, tortellini and dessert (ricotta cheesecake), but the other dishes fell short. The halibut had the best sear I've seen but was sent back because it was undercooked. The second try at it was just dry. Same with the duck and sirloin dishes. Great sear and appearance was wonderful, but dry and tough to cut. The service was good. Every server chips in to make sure all guests are taken care of. However, I think the servers give over the top, almost absurd descriptions at times, for the wine. Overall ok. A bit overhyped for the price."

  • "My fiance had called ahead to let them know we would be celebrating our engagement. By the way we were treated, you would have thought we were royalty. The staff took incredible care of us, giving us the perfect balance of privacy and service. We were immediately greeted with champagne and seated at a beautiful table by the window overlooking the commons. We indulged in the 6 course tasting menu, which was very well balanced - each dish bursting with complex flavors. The staff was very hospitable, knowledgeably, and couldn't do enough for us. Our dessert was presented with beautiful chocolate calligraphy "Congratulations" on the plate. It was truly the perfect celebratory dinner and one we won't forget."

  • "I took my wife to Boston to see a concert at Fenway and No 9 Park was a special treat prior to going. The food is outstanding. I'd mention a particular dish but they are all great. The drink menu has some real fun with both the creation of and the naming of drinks. Past that, the service was as good as I've ever had. Truly a great start to a fantastic evening."

  • "We arrived to Boston with high expectations to dine again at the restaurant. We hav dine here 2 years ago. We came from Israel and hoped to have the same experience and convinced our local friends here to join us. But unfortunately we were so disappointed. We ordred the tasting menu and with every dish we got we thought maybe the next one would be better. The food though was presented nicely the flavor was flat and the ingredients were not complementing one another the seasoning was poor and thevtaste dull. In the overall we spent a lot of money and received very little in return."

  • "We visited Boston this past weekend for a romantic getaway (with no kids). We came across No 9 Park and got a reservation for Saturday night. We both had the prix-fixe dinner. My wife had the tortellini and the duck while I had the tuna carpaccio and the halibut. The food was prepared to perfection. We consider ourselves foodies and we both remarked how our dinner was one of the best we've had in a long, long time. Our server Kam was great. He knew the menu inside and out and made great suggestions for wine pairings. We told the restaurant we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday in the hopes we would have a table by the window. Kam surprised us by bringing us two special treats to commemorate both, on top of dessert wow!"

  • "For a cheapish bistro, the food and place was ok. But for the given prices, it was a pretty poor restaurant. Sloppy but friendly service and the food was less than impressive. In fact it was not very well presented, balanced or well made. The table ware was worn and the interior shabby. Never again."

  • "yes, they always have some very interesting mix of food, spring herbs, different textures. prices have gone up and you get a little less. but overall it was excellent experience. wish they had nicer wines from california. french wines are ok, but they do not have the variety of wines needed for the food at a better price. special occasion for sure. will be back."

  • "My second visit to No. 9 Park did not disappoint. The service and food was beyond expectations, and my expectations were very high. We enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu, with wine pairings; what an experience! Tasty, thoughtful, and proportions that left you amazed at the course but not overwhelmed by the amount of food, considering 6+ courses. The restaurant paid special homage to our 20th Anniversary and made it a night my wife and I will never forgot. A "must experience" if in Boston. Hint...the gnocchi in foie butter sauce never comes off the menu and must be tried!"

  • "Had reservation @ 8:45. We arrived at 8:35 and were told our table would be ready "right on time," so we had a seat at the bar. Then we waited an HOUR. The entire bar area cleared out. No hostess approached us, until the 4th time I had to get up to ask. Finally, the manager approached us, said she would seat us, but... oops, NO TABLE. After 10 p.m. we were served first bit of food. Service was otherwise impeccable, they made every attempt to apologize. The food was good, not great. Nothing served at very hot or very cold temperature, veloute was more of a broth, my husband felt his fish was overcooked - we were just too hungry to send it back at that point. Really not worthy of the hype. I thought the prices, however, were fair for Boston."

  • "Group of 6 people well catered for. Food and service v good. Negatives? Only the building from outside which could use some attention as it makes you wonder if if could be a reflection of what is to come. Fortunately on this occasion anyway the answer was no. If you were just passing by and did not know of it's reputation there is nothing to make you stop and peruse the menu."

  • "A very refined, but affordable, menu. Our party of two selected different starters that were very delicate and tasty: a chilled pea soup with crab and ricotta raviolis. For main course, we had a superbly cooked piece of halibut with salted cod fondant and greens. As the portions are moderate, I recommend the cheese service à la carte to finish the wine. Superb desserts of rhubarb and chocolate tarts to crown the experience. The sommelier-server suggested to us a very fine sicilian wine as we had indicated we would like to have light red wine with the fish."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food, tasting menu, wine selections are outstanding. The staff is great also. My wife didn't want to sit by the service door, so they switched us to the front overlooking the park. When the tasting menu items started falling behind the wine, we mentioned it,and they responded in force. Extra pours, the wine stewards personal selection, and extra dessert. Not many restaurants respond like this, and it is duly noted. Will definitely be back."

  • "My husband and I splurged here for our first anniversary and were not disappointed! The service was great, the wine list was extensive... which made decisions for us tough because we like wine but are not quite connoisseurs... and the food was delicious. Mostly, we had mentioned it was our first anniversary so our server actually printed us out the menus of what we ate and took the label off of our wine bottle for us (the traditional first anniversary gift is paper) as a memento, that definitely sold it for us! Definitely a great special occasion spot!"
