About Menton

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.

I have been wanting to try Menton because I love all of the other Barbara Lynch restaurants. Came here on a date night with my girlfriend. All of the wait staff is extremely pleasant and made us feel very welcome throughout the night. The cocktails were good and interesting as expected. We did the tasting menu and got 6 a la carte dishes. The lamb tartare, seared scallops, Foie gras , lobster and uni spaghetti, sea bass and pork loin. The lamb tartare and foie gras were exceptional. The spaghetti and scallops were good as well - the flavors in each dish were interesting together. The fish was okay. The pork was not as expected flavor wise and was overcooked. Over all though, I would go back and just scratch the fish and pork and replace with something else on the menu. Expect to pay at minimum $150/person.

New Year Eve chef's tasting menu. My wife doesn't care for raw fish, so the snapper crudo morphed into an avocado, frisee, citrus salad that she loved. High end food, high priced, but welcoming, friendly and accommodating staff.

Menton is pricey but if you go at lunchtime and don't drink, it is a fabulous value. The dining room is lovely and understated, the service is top rate and the food was delightful to look at and delicious to eat. I was there for a post-Christmas ladies' luncheon and was so pleased with the Menton experience that I hope it will become an annual tradition.

I was looking forward to trying Menton's after hearing such good things about it. We went there mid-week. Although I wouldn't say anything really negative about it, there are other restaurants that I prefer. The servers were very nice, and the food was good, but not exceptional. Portions were small. Overall I'm glad I tried it, but I wouldn't go back.

The expectations were high for Menton but sadly were not completely met. We were two New Englanders and two New Yorkers (all foodies with worldwide restaurant experience) out for a post holiday special night out. The service was average as waiters and bread servers reached in front of our chests to plate bread, pour water, etc. Our waitress seemed somewhat annoyed both at our questions and when we had different requests for wine pairings (we didn't pair formally, we just paired by course individually). She left and returned to the table briskly making it difficult to have some requests met. The first course of pumpkin salad was uneventful, bland and had too much cheese. Second courses of pasta were better with the cavatelli being better than the lobster ravioli. The third courses were the beef entrecote and the pork dish which were good with the beef being the better of those two. This food was ok, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't live up to the reputation that it touts. If it were served somewhere else, it would be just fine, but here it seems to not be the level that perhaps it once was when the restaurant opened. We have eaten at No. 9 Park and would return there before returning here. The ambience is lovely especially the booths along the walls. FYI we didn't request special seating and because of that we were sat right in front of the kitchen door and we requested to move and the request was honored to a slightly better table but not a booth (interestingly that lousy table stayed empty all night yet the hostess staff chose to initially put us there instead of a better table).

Pre-Christmas luncheon. While we had no specific complaints, we came away feeling that the experience was just fair and that this restaurant has fallen back on its laurels. The service felt uncoordinated especially as the afternoon wore on. Server's uninforms were stained, dirty glassware on the bar. The food lacked spark.

This restaurant needs attention to bring it back to previously higher standards.

It is difficult to give this review as the overall experience was great, the food was great, the atmosphere was great, everything was great except for one thing. The room is very nice, my back was to the room so I didn't enjoy it as much as my wife but it was lit, enough, not too loud but not too quiet, nice dark woods. It created a nice atmosphere for eating. We decided to go with three courses each + we shared a desert. We each had different courses and shared. Every bite was great. Some dishes were more savory than others, one ravioli dish (Lobster) was a little too much on the lemon, but delicious. Really great. After our desert we paid the check and the waitperson brought over a plate with small bites. Not uncommon at this type of restaurant. One item on the plate was a macaron. We both love Macarons so we decided to eat them last. They were both stale. It was the last thing I put in my mouth at Menton and it was a stale Macaron. I've had far too many in my life so I'm pretty sure we know what we were eating. It could have possibly been frozen and then served, either way not at all fresh and was the last experience of an overall great meal. And they gave it to us, you would think when you spend this kind of money at a restaurant these types to things are top of mind. UGH, I was so disappointed. I know this sounds trivial but fine dining is an experience, a build. They missed the mark at the last moment. I'd still recommend Menton to any foodies that are willing to break the bank a bit.

Service was amazing, starters were very good, although the sweet cookie like bread served with the fois gras was not to our liking. Main courses were okay, my fish was a little over cooked. Lovely space. Charming front of house staff!

So much more than just “dinner,” it was a memorable dining experience we will not soon forget. The service made us feel like royalty. From graciously making adjustments to our reservation when we had a unexpected issue arise last minute to delivering a final cadeau of treats to send us off on a sweet note, the combination of food, service, and ambiance offered the grace and elegance reminiscent of fine dining of the past— something I had never experienced in our modern era. Our server, Annie, was professional and knowledgeable about both the menu and the extensive wine and beverage list. Working with the talented chefs in the kitchen, they crafted a customized menu to accommodate my (many) dietary restrictions and still take us on a delectable culinary adventure.

Our food was excellent as was the service. The menu is somewhat limited except for the tasting menu that appeared to be a bit too much for us to eat. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, and that was pleasantly acknowledged and we were given a short kitchen tour by the Guest Relations Manager, Maggie Scott. Ambience is veronica and modest, but noise level was a bit more than I'd expect for a high end restaurant.

I took my wife here for her birthday. We both had the 8 course fixed price menu with wine pairing. The food was incredible and most of the wine pairings enhanced the flavors we were tasting. The service was also top notch, we had multiple servers waiting on us throughout the evening. Be prepared to spend more than you have ever spent on a meal! After tip my tab was $750. Not the kind of place I can go every week, but I'm glad I had the experience.
