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.

    The testing menu take more time than it deserve. Almost 30 min between plates is too much. The food was not up to its reputation, very simple with low flavor. The service was good and they apologized for the lateness in the service.

    There was a very drunk and loud table, we mentioned it to many server in dining room, no one did anything. They were cursing loud and completely dominating the energy of the dining room. Eventually we were moved to the empty bar to finish our meal. What a disgrace. We have dined here many times over the years, it’s not worth the $600 price for such a trashy experience. What a dump!

    Not a lot of choice on the prix fixe menu but we didn’t take advantage of the opportunity to sub courses from the tasting menu. Between us we tried all of the eight prix fixe dishes and only two struck us as really impressive. The sturgeon and the pork belly was fantastic. The wait staff were excellent.

    Food was not very good and over priced. Service was average and not knowledgeable of food. Adjacent table was a display of inappropriate affection for a restaurant and more appropriate for a bedroom!! It was embarrassing with our teenage children joining us for a family birthday dinner. Would not recommend

    Server didn’t ask me if I wanted a somm. He rolled his eyes at me…even though he was basically the lowest level in the testing points. He couldn’t craft my clear intentions to buy a nice red and arrange the pairing. Essentially I bought a nice bottle and walked home with it. Also a huge turn off was I was rushed during my meal…3 times people came by to take my food when I wasn’t done. Best restaurant in Boston? Terrible. They should just go to a one star Michelin and observe and learn.

    MentonResponded on April 7, 2022

    Hi Joe, I'm very sorry to see that your experience was an unpleasant one, but thank you for your time in leaving your review. Your server that evening does hold a certified sommelier certificate from the CMS- but I would never expect any of our team members to roll their eyes at a guest. As a team, we will go over our service standards to ensure that our guests don't feel rushed during their stay. I do hope we can host you again to give you a better experience.

    MentonResponded on April 7, 2022

    Hi Minchau! I'm sorry to hear that our dishes weren't to your liking. Our chefs work very hard, sourcing local ingredients and utilizing lesser-known and difficult techniques to create dishes that are unlike anything else. That being said, we recognize that our guests may have certain preferences and I'd really like to hear how we may tailor a menu more suited to your liking for your next visit. Please reach me at jhawthorne@mentonboston before you join us again. Thank you!

    Overall this was very meh. For almost $200 per person before alcohol I was expecting at least something noteworthy. Everything was fine but not particularly interesting or flavorful. The end result was disappointment (and maybe some tears) because it made a special occasion less special. Have very low expectations. And don’t be very hungry.

    MentonResponded on March 26, 2022

    Hi Elizabeth! Thank you very much for taking the time to review. I am sorry to hear that not all of the dishes were to your liking. Chef's prix fixe is meant to dazzle the mind and the tastebuds just as much as our Tasting menu does. If you could please, send me an email with your specific preferences so that we may create a menu more tailored to your palate. I look forward to hosting you again to show you what the Menton experience is all about. jhawthorne@mentonboston . c o m

    Getting much worse. No a la carte menu anymore only the pre-fix with much worse prices and worse options vs last year. Service still awesome but for the new prices and lack of good food and options, it’s a no go this year (e.g., not possible to get just the duck or the tagliatelle)

    MentonResponded on March 20, 2022

    I am terribly sorry that the menu options are not to your liking. Menton has transitioned to Prix-Fixe / Tasting menus only, as it better aligns with Chef's vision of modern fine dining. We are always happy to accommodate our guests and I encourage you to please let us know of any preferences you may have to create a menu better suited to your liking the next time you join us.
