    We have eaten at No. 9 Park on a few occasions, and have never been disappointed. Their meals typically are of the prix fixe nature. We chose a five course option, with fluke, bluefish, foie gras, gnocchi, and flat iron steak. While the portions were small, each course was presented beautifully; we were satiated before the dessert was presented. The location is easily accessible to out of town guests and locals alike, though the view of the Common, from most of the tables, is limited. The ambience is nothing special, though the quiet nature of the setting and the exquisite care we were given by the wait staff more than made up for this truth. We will always make our way back to No. 9 Park when visiting Boston from our home in Phoenix.

    Celebrated a birthday dinner at No.9 park. The chef made an incredible dessert cake on request and it was magnificent. I enjoyed the entire dinner, every dish was beautifully plated and pleasing to the palate. We had the luck of dining out during Boston's restaurant week, so we had several tasting menus to choose from. The wait staff were so attentive and knowledgeable about the cuisine. If I find myself in Boston again, I would not hesitate to dine at No. 9 park.

    Wife and I were visiting Boston and had one night for a special dinner. Went with No.9 - it did not disappoint. Was Boston's Dine Out week so there were three menu offerings. They ask that all diners at the table work off the same choice (this is something I have grumped about at other restaurants). We chose 3 course - it gave us the most flexibility in tasting around the menu. Each course was delightful and on point. Since no wine pairing was offered for the 3 course, we asked our server to pair for us. She did an EXCELLENT job. However, be aware, that can get pricey fast. If you're budget conscious, ask service to be as well, or avoid this route. Otherwise, I highly encourage if visiting (or a resident) of Boston, to plan a visit to no.9.

    We were visiting Boston and saw this cozy looking restaurant. It was amazing, from the time we walked in until we left!! The signature cocktail list was really hard to just pick one! I recommend the "Painkiller". Next we sat down at a great table in the corner. Our server Gregg really added to the experience. He was very knowledgable about the menu, wines and the artisan cheeses. I highly suggest doing a five course or chef's tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was outstanding and creative. Everything was brought out in perfect time. The staff and service were professional yet very friendly. I love this restaurant and we will definitely be back on our next visit!!!

    Well worth the expense. We chose the Tasting menu and it was over the top with great combinations or quality items blended together in an orderly fashion..Dinner for 4 was almost $700...but we would do it again...The Prix Price menue is a bit kinder to pocketbook. But overall, an excellent experience. A little noisy but not over the top.

    Even though this restaurant has the high prices of some other restaurants they don't have that stuffy high price feel. The staff were fantastic & we felt right at home. My friend didn't care for the 1st course, she didn't complain but they noticed and brought her something else instead (I finished off her 1st course, I thought it was wonderful). Great bread - something I'm always picky about. We did the dine out Boston pre-fix and everything was delicious - just the right portions, left satisfied but not uncomfortably stuffed. I would return. They are very accommodating & friendly. I would recommend highly.

    We chose from the prix-fixe menu. We had asked in advance for pescatarian options, and they altered some of the dishes to honor our preferences. The corn agnolotti was flavorful and the hake was incredible. I found myself audibly "mmming" after each bite. I would highly recommend the black truffle supplement with homemade pasta. For dessert, the chocolate ice cream torte was the perfect blend of mint, cold cream, and chocolate to top off my full stomach. Of course, the service was attentive and thoughtful. We had a lovely time, and would highly recommend it.

    The restaurant in general was lovely and had very good food. The main thing that stands out for me is that it was very pricey. We chose to order à la carte, and found out when we got the check, that all appetizers and main courses were the same price (except for some sepcial courses like foie gras), which meant I ended up paying around 20 dollars for a gazpacho that was pretty bland. We also brought our kids (2 and 4 years old), which went all right (thanks to our iPads and head phones :), but their pasta with butter cost 18 USD per portion! That was the most expensive pasta we have ever had! Some carrots on the side were 8 USD... All in all a great place to eat (all the other dishes were really good), but don't bring small kids.

    This restaurant came highly reccommended so I was really excited. Walked in and was quickly taken to our table that had a great view looking out towards the Prudential tower and over the Boston Commons. Our 3 course meal was amazing, the prune stuffed gnocchi was amazing, the hake and duck were both unbelievable. The food was amazing, the service was great. Definitely a great spot for an expensive, but well worth it meal.

    There are certain foods that linger on in memory as 'to die for'! Such is the case with No. 9's Prune-Stuffed Gnocchi in a foie gras, almond, vin santo. The gnocchi were so tender and the contrast of the sweet prune with the foie gras glaze was a culinary delight. Not only the taste, but the presentation of each dish was outstanding. Our waiter was very professional and took care to answer our questions about the menu. With wine, dinner for two can be quite expensive. For a special occasion, dining at No. 9 is a gift in itself.

    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.

    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 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 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.

    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.
