The Fort Point neighborhood’s urban cityscape, with its blend of historic brick buildings and sleek design statements, is the perfect setting for Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch's modern interpretation of fine dining.

With beautifully executed cuisine, an unparalleled wine program, warm hospitality, and a glamorous setting, Menton seeks to excite, inspire, and transport guests. Pristine ingredients and refined technique are the basis for the seasonally inspired menus for lunch and dinner. A six-seat bar, with additional seating for ten at tables along a banquette, features expertly crafted cocktails and an approachable menu of comforting classics. Executive Wine Director Cat Silirie’s carefully curated wine list highlights small grower champagnes and rare vintages from lesser-known vineyards.

In addition to the dining room and bar, Menton boasts two private event spaces perfect for gathering with colleagues, friends, or family.

Our dinner was made most memorable by Danny (clearly a manager of some sort) who kindly took it upon himself to "manage" our table for the evening....starting with interesting cocktail choices, leading us through excellent wine decisions and entrees, and desserts, he did it all with a fabulous sense of humor and ended our evening with a sneak peak at the kitchen operation!
Danny is the man who made this a memorable evening (and yes, our food was delicious). We'll make plans to celebrate our collective birthdays again next year! Thank you Danny and all the team of competent servers who brought and removed various platings with lightening speed and professionalism (including non stop water service etc.!). Top notch experience!

Tried three entrees and they were all very good. Flavors and sauces were excellent, meat and fish were perfectly cooked to our requests, and the pasta (gnocchi) was light and well made. Desert was beautifully presented, but the flavors were hit or miss--felt like they were doing a bit too much. Staff were excellent--friendly, patient, pleasant, and kind. Overall, a great experience. We will be returning.

Great, attentive staff and perfect food. The wine list was great but did not have good options for bottles under $200 which is silly. The lack of such options does not put the sommelier in a good light, quite the contrary. As if wine was stocked by price only as opposed by taste and terroir...

This is my second visit to Menton with a 12 month lapse in between., and having not been to all the great restaurants in Boston because of limited time in the City, this would be my # 1 recommendation to someone visiting for the first time.. In the 12 month period , the food has remained more than excellent and the service has been perked up a notch. Chef Lynch not only know how to prepare the finest ingredients to produce marvelous textures and tastes but also knows how to run a business. Service was exceptional and our captain could not have been nicer. His recommendations and his flair for making us comfortable was out of this world. I had two sliced pieces of Rib Eye that, without question, was the best I have ever tasted. The Seared foie gras was so tasty, it just melted in the mouth and washed down with a glass of recommended Sauterne, I was in heaven. One of our guests had the Halibut, the other a beautifully prepared ravioli and we all agreed that the food could not be topped. The extensive wine list is just that, so extensive that I would rely on the staff to recommend pairings for courses as most of the wines today are so spread out across the universe and so good that its almost I'm[possible to keep up, and unless you are a sommelier, you are better off letting the professionals choose. I noticed there are other properties under the Lynch banner so I must try them all in my next visit

The sweetbread was the best ever. The tomatoes with a teaspon of goat cheese Really. What a shame. The Porrclet was overdone. Disappointed. Dessert Peach Mille Feuille more cookie than puff pastry. Again disappointed.

The only good thing was the service which was impeccable and professional.

The restaurant decor was cheap and common at this price point a tablecloth was expected. The silver was so marked that I thought my spoon was unclean. The flowers near my table in the niche were wilted. Shame.

The washroom was so dark with a 40 watt bulb and I mentioned it to girl at reception. Shame again.

Luckily, Boston has some fine restaurants so I shall never return. What a waste of money.

Ambiance, service and presentation of the dishes were excellent. We got the chef’s whim. Only three of the eight dishes were interesting - the foie gras, the fruits de mer, and the wagyu. The artic char amuse bouche was the only dish that blew me away and I wished the other dishes were at this level in terms of flavor combinations. The other dishes ranged from good to bland. I expected more given the price and reputation but overall a pleasant evening.

Great place to celebrate my sister's birthday while she was in Boston for a couple of hours. The food was delicious and the presentation carefully crafted. We went during Dine Out Boston and each got 3 courses for $35. We both got the corn soup with trout which was nicely pureed and smooth, I got the artic char, which was delicious and perfectly cooked, she got the duck confit fettuccine which was tasty but a little too salty, and we got one of each of the two desserts which were tasty but ran out of time to enjoy. While it wasn't busy, service was a bit slow, and disappointing to only have enjoyed a few bites of dessert, especially since it was beautifully crafted with many components to enjoy and we had been reminding staff we had limited time to work with. Overall it was a good experience. Anyone doing a 3-course lunch should allow for at least a couple hours. 1.3 hours wasn't enough.
