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.

The staff at Menton were exceptional, especially our waiter who made my son feel special on his 14th birthday.

Amazing meal and service! Food was fantastic. Had steak tartare and escargot to start. So delicious. Husband had lamb loin and I had ricotta tortellini with braised pork cheeks. Unbelievable. Meyer lemon pudding for dessert. Would go back again in a second. Servers were wonderful. Just go!!!

Staff is Very Attentive from our entrance to departure. Food is very good. I do enjoy the small portions since the food is quite rich. The menu could be expanded.
We had a very lovely evening.

We go every year for Mother’s Day. I honestly can’t say enough. The food and the atmosphere are incredible. But the people who work there make it what it is. They are amazing. Attentive, yet casual and laid back. Not in the least stodgy, but as high end as it gets in Boston. I never write reviews, but I love this place.

Poor service for a fine dining venue.
We had the tasting menu and wine pairings.
Food solid not special but service impacted overall experience.
Chaotic service without clear ownership.
At one point we had 4 servers ask if we had finished a dish and try to remove plates in 90 secs. Cutlery wasn't suggesting we had finished and we hadn't....
No 9 Park a different class to this and surprised such variability within the same group.
Overall, quite a disappointment

We sat at a table in the bar area. It was nice and quiet. Food was excellent - the presentation, the flavor, the temperature - everything. Wait staff were attentive. The branzino crudo, seared scallops with spring peas and mango vacherin were all wonderful. I had a cocktail with chili vodka that was deliciously spicy.

The foie gras and lamb loin were both excellent. The wine and wine list were outstanding . I had the rhubarb dessert and it was tasty but not amazing. It seemed like we had a bit of a wait for service to get started but once our waiter got started with us the service was wonderful. I loved the ambiance. The place is not too big or too small, lovely décor and it project elegance without being stuffy. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would recommend this restaurant for sure!

The place was more rustic than I anticipated with the unfinished wood tables. The service was top notch, but i felt like the time between foods was a bit long. We sat next to a couple who was doing the tasting menu, and they were told it takes ~4 hours from start to finish. They were seated before us, and they were still on their 5th course (I believe) when we left.

Everyone was friendly to us; they wished my girlfriend a happy birthday, and they even decorated the dessert for the occasion. Really enjoyed the foie gras here as well as the pasta and lamb loin chops. The lamb loin was cooked to a perfect medium and it was seasoned well. I enjoyed how it wasn't too gamey.

Also their home made bread is pillowy goodness.

Menton was one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Boston. Barbara Lynch is a master at creating incredible dishes where every bite is savored. The wait staff and service were outstanding, experienced and friendly. Menton is not your regular restaurant. It is a special experience filled with delightful extras and outstanding food that you will remember long after your night there.

Just a fabulous experience all around. We went to Menton to celebrate running the Boston marathon, and it was certainly the perfect restaurant and meal to do it with. The restaurant called to find out food allergies and aversions, which I fully appreciate it. The servers were incredibly kind, attentive, and friendly. The food was incredible...we might need to make another trip to Boston just so we can go to Menton again.

This was our 50th wedding anniversary. They treated us like friends in their home with a glass of champagne upon arrival, a special dessert with "Happy 50th Anniversary" written in chocolate on it, and a copy of the tasting menu with "Happy 50th Anniversary" printed on it. We will have that framed.

This was perhaps the best meal I have had since my last visit to Chez Bocuse in Lyon.

We will definitely be back for our next 50th anniversary celebration!

Leider ein vollkommen unbefriedigendes kulinarisches Erlebnis. Keine Sterneküche, sondern recht liebloses, geschmacksneutrales Essen, das viel mehr sein möchte als es ist. Erinnert mehr an Fertiggerichte als an Fine Cousine. Weinbegleitung ok, aber nicht spektakulär, freundlicher Service, maßlos überteuert. Sicher kein 2.Besuch!

Did the tasting menu with an out of town friend. Cocktails were slightly pricey but excellent, especially the petit dejuener. Service flawless. The redone dining room is elegant but casual. Food was mixed. Some excellent courses, amazing bread service, but also some hiccups such as too-al-dente pasta, underseasoned meat. Dessert was surprisingly meh - surprising since I've had great desserts at Menton in past visits and the pastry chef's work looks amazing on Instagram...but what we got didn't quite live up to expectations.

Overall great dinner, but not sure it quite lived up to its price point.

Food was fine however overall experience was not enjoyable. The chef menu was served a such a speed that it was challenging to enjoy each meal as the next one was coming just after. An 8 courses meal was served in 2.5h making challenging to truly enjoy the experience.

Really lovely fine dining experience - attentive service, outstanding cooking, and none of the loud babble so commonly spoiling the atmosphere in other restaurants. Standout dishes were the foiegras, the oyster veloute, the pasta dish with pork cheeks, and the rib eye. And all the desserts were fabulous. A great treat!

Much preferred early iterations of this restaurant. Particularly the earliest, very French version. Food was good, but not spectacular. I found the marble interior much less inviting than the earlier wood paneled design. Just my opinion, for what it's worth.
