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.

Wonderful service. They called ahead about dietary restrictions and required no refresher. Good was flavorful and enjoyable. Dessert and first course was spectacular for vegetarians. I would definitely go back outside of Dine Out.

It was restaurant week, so food choices were very limited; hence 4 stars as neither entree were that exciting for me. Servers and other staff members were great. The table was very nice - plenty of room for 2. Quiet music and comfortable room temperature.

The food was good, but not remarkable. We enjoyed our meal, but I wouldn't say it was worth the price. I don't mind spending this much on a special night out, but it has to be worth it. In this case, it was not. I have eaten significantly better meals in Boston, and usually for much less. The service was great, though, and overall, we had a nice evening. It's worth giving it a shot, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend this place.

We ate here for the first time during restaurant week, so I can only comment on that. The cocktail menu was not clear and incomplete on descriptions, although we know they have a fantastic bar program (have been to sister-restaurant/bar Drink).
The meal over all was ok, but not a value even at Restaurant Week prices/plan. The decor was not as swanky as other high end restaurants and had a slick/glassy/shiny look rather than exuding the elegance that the tasting menu would warrant.
1/2 our dishes were under-seasoned or bland. The amuse bouche was a small bite of smoked salmon, cream, slice of cucumber, tweezered on dill. Nice looking, as expected tasting but not creative. The fish filet was overcooked, lentils were bland. The hamachi crudo dish was very nice with an excellent balance of flavor, seasoning, and citrus. Something similar is shown on the tasting menu. The portions meal were large, but I would have rather had higher quality and consistency than volume. Dessert was very good and what we expect from fine dining. The crudo and dessert were top notch, as was the drinks.
Service was fine but didnt make us feel Gucci or too welcoming.
We will not be back for the tasting menu.

My partner and I had a lovely meal at Menton. We were in during Restaurant Week, and enjoyed the fixed price offerings immensely. We were also pleasantly surprised at the optional additions to the menu - they were delicious. The cocktails were amazing, which is unsurprising for a Barbara Lynch restaurant, but still worth noting. Staff was extremely responsive and professional. We look forward to coming back.

Exceptional service and exceptional execution in the kitchen. Venison was fantastic and perfectly cooked medium rare. Branzino was as fresh tasting as if it just had been pulled out of the ocean - the question remains is branzino a simple sea bass or something entirely different. Based on the size of the portion it seemed like some very exotic European fish. Steak tartare and foie gras we’re perfect as was the milk chocolate mille feuille in very interesting interpretation. Great wine list. Overall this a perfect place for special occasion (we heard Happy Anniversary from everyone there). Somehow this place is very casual in its understated almost Scandinavian decor with impeccable service and food worthy a couple Michelin stars (I dine at those in NYC and Menton is definitely in the same league). Overall a bit pricey but not overpriced: perfect 5 stars.

The Barbara Lynch group never fails to astonish. If you ever have the opportunity to eat in these restaurants you’d be crazy to pass on the chance. Menton is no exception. Amazing staff with incredible knowledge and food so good my eyes were rolling back in my head. Our server Alyssa did a fantastic job and taught us so much about each pour of wine. Perbacco!

Fabulous service. Danny was so kind as to reseat us because I was having trouble tolerating the perfume of a neighboring guest, and was extremely gracious about it. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The waitstaff , particularly Alyssa, were knowledgeable and well-spoken. The food was good but not the level of outstanding I had expected. The portions were more than adequate for a tasting menu. We chose the 5 course "Dine Out Boston" meal. The hamachi crudo was very good. The mushroom galette was delicious, though the puff pastry shell was difficult to cut. The branzino was unexpectedly smoky, with a lovely crisp skin and a crisp potato cake. The braised lamb was very heavy, and the accompanying pasta was perfectly al dente. Dessert was a lovely chocolate tart, not overly heavy, with a wonderful sorbet. I was too full to try the cookies. The coffee was actually terrible - weak and tasted old (and no, we did not say anything to the staff at the time). The noise level was lively. The lights inexplicably waxed and waned towards the end of our visit, made me think of the movie "Gaslight" except that my spouse and I were in agreement about noticing it. Seating was comfortable, and the lighting was adequate, though a neighboring table had their cellphone lights on to read the menu.

Waitress’s attitude is very rude and unprofessional. They didn’t do the basic introduction about their menu. When we asked about the menu content, they show pretty impatient attitude and contempt on us.

It’s unforgettable dining experience and we will never go to this restaurant forever.

My compliments to the pastry chef! Even my non-dessert loving husband was glad he indulged.

Service was warm and welcoming, from the front door to the wait staff to the help staff. In a chic, minimalist atmosphere, lush floral arrangements at the desk and mid room were exquisite. Nice selection of wine, delicious cocktails with just that extra mystery ingredient that brings it to another level.

We had not been to Menton before because we thought it was always a tasting menu for the entire table. A La Carte is available and wonderful! We will absolutely return.

Our server Annie was lovely and the rest of the team. We went to celebrate my birthday. From the in house breads (always trying new things) we adored their current onion roll (out of this world) and black olive focaccia. The amuse bouche set us on our journey. We got offered a Parker Roll (soft, warm and yummy) served with the chef's personal friend's animal farm in Vermont. The special butter was from Babette. Babette makes good butter! The Hamachi Crudo was delicious-light, bright and fresh and tasty. The mushroom galette was eating too soon! The poached egg added an extra level of luxury in every bite. No added fussy elements. Foie Gras was outstanding! The apple butter, honey, mustard, tart cherry all melded well. We wanted more. The braised lamb over pasta and branzino both were yummy but... Lamb had cheese on top that did nothing for it while the lentils in the branzino dish took away from the fish. Our whole table agreed on that point. The desert was creme de chocolate au lait and I enjoyed the various complex flavors in it.

We went with the Chef's Whim and coordinated wine pairings and couldn't have been happier. The different flavors and textures of the food matched the wine perfectly. The waiter provided insights into the wines and the reasons behind choosing them and the wait staff were friendly and extremely efficient. We're looking forward to going back.

We went for Valentine’s Day and paid a hefty tax for that, which is common in Boston. Maybe next near we’ll celebrate on the day before or the day after. We paid $250ea (not including wine) for the same tasting menu that is $165ea just days later and it wasn’t any more special an experience. Additionally, I have to say the wine pairing was unremarkable.

Value aside, this was my second visit and I do enjoy the ambiance and find the service to be great. In this case our waitress was exceptional, but another server had a slight reaching issue that caused us to watch for elbows. With a little training, or on another night, Menton could rank among the city’s best for service. The hostess did remember my name for the coat check at the end of the evening, which was very impressive.

The 7-course tasting menu started with an Amuse-bouche and bread service. The main courses ranged from amberjack crudo to wagyu beef. With the exception of one, I found the courses to be very well presented and a delicious combination of flavors, but not overly inventive. I enjoy tasting menus with very unique ingredients and or preparation methods, but there was nothing surprising or new here. The wines, by varietal, were paired nicely with each course, but they were just average wines at best. The dessert, while a work of art, just wasn’t a kind I tend to like.

I don’t think we’ll be returning largely because the menu prices were overly inflated without a commiserate increase in the quality of the menu. For example, if they added a dollop of beluga caviar to a course and served a cup of kopi luwak at the end, I would have gladly paid the higher price for a special experience and would probably be itching to return. However, this experience left a bad taste in my mouth.
