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.

Menton is simply too expensive. I helps to explain why it was easy to book a table on a weekend night. I found the wine list to be....almost offensive. I really am not interested in seeing a list that includes $4,000 bottles.

Best culinary experience in Boston, from the moment you walk in the front door, to the moment you leave. The service was stellar and the food was creative, thoughtful and showcased a unique expertise I've never experienced as a foodie. Can't wait to come back!

Our dinner at Menton was nothing short of an amazing experience. We partook in the Chef’s Wim tasting menu along with its optional wine pairing. The preparations were all exquisite, the plate presentations perfect and the service world-class! If you are looking for a dining experience where the cuisine is the true champion, Menton is undoubtedly your destination. Be prepared to be “wowed”!

Phenomenal service. After a much needed facelift, Menton has modernized to a more casual 5-star feel. Gone are white-tablecloths. The food is still very good and well-manicured without being pretentious. The service is fun and extremey attentive and accommodating. The down-side yo the casual vibe is that you’re left wondering if it was really worth the price-tag.

This was our second visit to Menton. It was our 25th wedding anniversary so we decided to splurge. It is definitely worth the money for a special occasion. We chose the chefs tasting menu instead of ordering al la carte. When we asked to change out one of those offerings our waitress didn’t hesitate to accommodate that. Each course was delicious, just the right amount and beautifully presented. Lovely bread offerings. We declined the cheese course but know from our past visit that it’s a nice selection. Menton is wonderful.

One of our favorite restaurants while in Boston. The food is outstanding, always prepared with such elegance and cooked to perfection. We had an oyster amuse, seared fois gras, steak tartare, dry aged ribeye, and venison with each having multi layered flavors! The cheese course (blue cheese, honey) was wonderful as well as the dark chocolate-coriander delice!! The timing of the waitstaff is such that you are able to enjoy each course and not feel rushed, very professional!!

Inspired by the positive reviews that the restaurant has received, we booked a reservation for a family gathering. We were very disappointed. While the food was good, but not great, the service was uneven, disinterested and in one instance, rude. I would be unable to recommend Menton to anyone.

Service was so far above and beyond that it should be called out immediately. The food was of high quality and taste. We were seated almost immediately and everyone on the staff that helped us commented on our special occasion. We were really tempted to do the chef's tasting menu but ended up ordering off the a la carte menu. Everything there was amazing. It's smaller sizes than traditional American restaurant but very similar to traditional French.

The desert was the best part of the meal. The rest of the food was great but not exceptional. For example one of the bread option was too salty. The servers/ service was top notch.

The waiter on a Thursday night in the bar space did not know the menu or cocktails. Food was very good. Wines were very good although relatively highly priced. We sat in the bar which on a slow night which probably was not a good choice. The space is very nice but we will not hurry to return after this experience.

We went for a family birthday celebration, and it was an incredible experience! Danny and Chef Chris took the BEST care of us! Everyone was more than accommodating as far as tweaking the tasting menu for diet restrictions. I can’t say there was a thing I didn’t like on the menu! Definitely recommend the wine pairing along with the chef’s tasting menu.

We came down from Maine for an evening in Boston and because we do this fairly infrequently, we wanted it to be great. And Menton was exactly that - great!! I would wholeheartedly recommended Menton to everyone. So so good!

Unfortunately, this was one of the most disappointing meals I have had in many years. We had great expectations, having heard about Menton for a number of years. For my wife's birthday, I decided it was the perfect venue for a special night. Please note we eat out at least once or twice a week and have dined in restaurants throughout Europe, Australia and the US; I only mention this because it may be helpful for readers to understand our past experiences. The service was quite good but the food was another matter. The pasta appetizer was not fully cooked and as a result tasted a bit rubbery. Two guests had the Char which was cold and undercooked. (I didn't know that until after dinner or I would have asked that they be replaced). The size of the portion for the ribeye entree was extremely small (even by French standards!) We ordered three different sorbets for dessert - what we got were flavors we hadn't ordered. In fact one of them tasted like a bar of soap. Needless to say, I will never step foot in that restaurant again.

We enjoyed our meal at Menton. The service was excellent and the food very good although my husband thought his French onion soup was ordinary. My salad and beef were both outstanding. Unfortunately, our table was wobbly and couldn’t be fixed although they did try. I’d like to go there again and try the tasting menu.

We enjoyed an excellent meal! The last time I visited Menton the menu offered two prix fixe meals - tastings - one of five courses and one of eight. While the food was incredibly good and the servings were modest, even the five course offering was too much food. This time, there was a wonderful a la carte menu of excellent offerings and an eight course tasting with no requirement to order all eight courses. This is an attentive staff who follow the leads and needs of their audience. Service was excellent, the food and the choices were outstanding and the evening was a complete delight.

I had not been to Menton for some time. I was staying in Boston for Thanksgiving and staying near the restaurant. The place was kind of empty on the Friday lunch after Thanksgiving. The food wasn't bad-just nothing memorable. And the menu was quite minimal. Even given the minimal menu, the restaurant didn't have the crab bisque-supposedly no crabs to be had in the market and no replacement either. The ravioli was decent-but nothing I haven't had many times in the past. There was no chicken, duck, pork, lamb-in other words nothing but a strip loin if you wanted a hearty lunch-and we did.

If you are going to serve lunch in an upscale restaurant-serve lunch. If that is not a paying proposition do not bother. I could have gone to L'Espalier as an alternative and indeed I should have done. I will complement the server. He was professional, accommodating and tried to make everything right. He was well trained.

We had a wonderful experience here. We went all in with the "chef's whim", plus the wine flight, and it was fantastic. I don't eat meat, and the staff were wonderfully accommodating, substituting fish and other options in place of the meat courses. We also recommend having a craft cocktail at the bar first - the bartender (whose name we didn't get) was outstanding.

Finally made a visit to Menton after many years of wanting to go. Found the staff to be excellent and the space was very warm in its contemporary way. The food was excellent. While we did not have the tasting menu, we thoroughly enjoyed appetizers, a shared gnocchi and entrees. We started with cocktails that were perfect and each had a glass of wine that our server chose to compliment our meals. Both were very good. Looking forward to going back some day for the tasting menu.
