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 seasonally inspired menus. A six-seat bar, with additional seating for ten at tables along a banquette, features expertly crafted cocktails and beers from both near and far. A 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.

Waited about 30 minutes to be seated although we had a reservation made but it was completely worth the wait - The service from the host and our waiters was fantastic and exceptionally friendly, and the food was absolutely heaven-sent! Portions were perfect and left us just enough room for dessert. Not to mention, the complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary was lovely. We'll definitely be returning again!

One of Boston’s best restaurants. Michelin star worthy. Barbra Lynch is a local treasure and we’re fortunate to have her restaurants in our backyard #selebritydineroutandabout

Quite disappointed by these restaurant supposed to be one of the best in town. It is the first time in my life I'm not finishing all my plates in this kind of restaurant. Several courses have been ruined by too much sugar, making them to heavy, especially the foie gras (cake + caramelized crème fraiche). Overall the food was good but not amazing as it should be for a restaurant with prices as high as restaurants with Michelin star(s). Nice wine list though, and understandable staff when the wine need to be changed (corked in our case).

Meal was very good up to the main dish. My wife got the supplemental upgrade of American Wagyu (for $40). It did not taste like wagyu, plus the it was end of the loin, which made it very dry and tough (ordered medium rare). I myself do not set beef, so I notified the staff in the beginning. All the kitchen did was providing me a piece of fish with the same sauce/supplements as the beef dish. I would expect one to provide me a new dish (given the kitchen would have this ready).

Last mistake was giving my fish dish the wrong wine (we had the wine pairing). One would assume that a different wine would be offered given my dish.

We were expecting our usual extraordinary dining experience that we have come to expect, it was far from that.

1. Service was choppy and tough to communicate with staff.

2. Wine service was poor. Had to ask for the wine to be decanted multiple times.

3. We opted for ala carte (3 courses) and there were more missed than hits. The pasta dishes lacked the flavor we would have expected. The crudo appetizer was drowning in liquid. It was more a soup than a crudo. Duck was dry.

4. Cheese course was awful. Small portions and only 3 options. This was a huge disappointment. We so look
forward to this course,

5. Dessert was very good as well as parting chocolates.

We will chalk it up the pandemic and hope for a better experience next time.

Extremely disappointed across the board - Did the Chef's whim tasting menu - Couldn't find a course that was reasonably enjoyable - Should not be mentioned as the only 5-star restaurant in Boston or one that could/should earn Michelin status.

Highly recommend the Chef's tasting menu. What an unbelievable and delicious experience. They say its 8 courses but its more like 12 or 13. We left so happy. Worth every dollar.

Everything so good. Observation, I do not know how often servers changed gloves. I saw servers cleaning and serving tables with the same gloves?? And why the name Menton does not appears on the menue?
I highly recommend the restaurant. The preparation of the food served was superb!!!. Barbara and team, hats off.

Food was very good except the sweetbread that needs a lot if work or be retired, the sofrito was awful. The dessert with lemon was too overpowered by the lemon. Service was excellent. A bit too pricey though. Wine selection really good and priced reasonably.

We had a great time at Menton. We went there for our wedding anniversary and participated in the chef’s tasting menu and wine pairing. The food and the wine were both delightful, however, we did feel a bit rushed when the staff would overlap our wines..which felt like we were being pushed to finish our previous glass so they could bring the next course. Overall, it was a nice experience and we would definitely go back.

Very disappointing. Do not understand how it receives 5 stars and 5 diamonds or how it is a member of Relais et Chateaux. It's a neighborhood restaurant with some pretense, not a world-class dining experience. Loud, stark ambiance, painfully plain tables, good but not exceptional food, good wines, inattentive service with quite a bit of froideur, no sommelier present. Those ordering the tasting menu seemed to receive more attention. Was supposed to go back in a couple of weeks with my best friend for the tasting menu, cancelled the reservation again.
