Menton Ratings and Reviews
We were in the bar area which started off a little loud. (Actually just that one guy that likes the sound of his own voice.) Service started off a little odd. Spotty. Waited to place a drink order, but then evened our and all was well. Food was very good as expected. My steak was not the best piece of meat, but was cooked perfectly. Lamb tartar was the favorite of the evening.
A true culinary experience. The Chef’s Whim tasting menu was out of this world. Every dish was creatively and wonderfully prepared, served alongside impeccable service. Definitely a special occasion restaurant (ended up being about $350/person) but worth it for special celebrations.
Absolutely beautiful food. You can tell everything is made from the freshest ingredients and it's all cooked perfectly. As blown away by the food as I was, the staff almost topped the food for me. They were knowledgeable, friendly, attentive but not annoying or pushy. Every course came out at the perfect time. Every detail was perfect. I really can't say enough good things about the food and staff at Menton.
Really great experience from seating to check. They offered us complementary oysters and suggested good wine pairings for our cheese selection. There was a lot we didn’t know and the whole staff were very helpful and welcoming to our questions. Would return again
This is our 4th (or 5th) visit to Menton and every bit as memorable as our very first. We think of this is a true "special occasion" restaurant but with judicious choices on wines, one can afford to splurge a bit now and then. Service is top notch, the wine list is an amazing compendium of choices, the food is superb (for the eye as well as the palate). Bravo, Barbara Lynch and team.
The best quality cooking I have had for ages . Scallops cooked to total perfection and then a cod dish so tasty and beautifully cooked I am still thinking of it . The staff we absolutely charming but not pushy. They gave us small taster of the lobster pasta that was incredible. The wine list is excellent and the wine we had should have cost much more.
Impeccable dining experience. Delicious, fresh food expertly prepared. Still dreaming about the beef entree, wine pairings, and macaron desserts. The chef is really attentive to dietary needs (gluten free, etc). The service is attentive and caring. The stemware is gorgeous (hand blown). And they even let me order a flower bouquet for a birthday occasion (beautifully made). Everything was simply fantastic. Can't wait to go back!
We had a fabulous first meal here , but it won’t be the last . The lighting,the service,the ambiance,and of course the fabulous food was all perfect for us . We chose off the a la carte, and it was all amazing, full of flavor,.Even the French press coffee had a depth of flavor we had never tasted before . The table was not too close to others, which is not the case in many seaport restaurants . Perfect for us, can’t wait till next date night
Simply exquisite. First time visiting and best restaurant we’ve ever been to in Boston. Every course was beautiful with interesting flavor contrasts. The room was well-lit enough to see the food!! We were very impressed with the wine pairings. Each one was spot on including classic pairings such as Sauternes with foie gras and more unusual such as white Burgundy with mushrooms and truffles. Menus change once a month so go now to enjoy February!!
First off the service was impeccable, the staff is genuinely kind and attentive. My father and I opted for the tasting menu. It was a Monday so i'll give the chef some graces on the quality of the seafood, but the opening complimentary oyster left a lot to be desired, resembled dirty ocean water and the toping of lemon ice wasn't a welcome pairing. The next two courses weren't very flavorful, They were both fish dishes. The crudo was good but only because it was fresh tasting but lacked any sort of flavor (regarding its compliments of caviar and fennel) beyond that. The tuna was far beyond it's prime and my father refused to even finish it beyond the first bite. Again, the sauces, while i agree should compliment the fish and not overpower it, offered quite literally zero flavor. Now, the fish aside, onto the meat. The celery root sformato, while a foreign consistency (similar to a custard) was amazing; surprisingly filling and loaded with beef flavors. The Maccheroni al ferro was probably my favorite, i wanted an entire bowl of it honestly. The sauce was the kind you wanted to keep and slather on anything else in a 10 foot radius. I had heard of the Foie Gras when recommended to Menton so I was excited for that, and wasn't let down! It was the perfect amount of fat without being too slimy and paired with a light toast, I didn't really need the persimmon on the plate, didn't feel necessary but I was too enamored by the Foie Gras to care. The squab breast was also really well cooked, didn't need the pork belly with it - a little dry, but the squab was perfectly tender. So by the time the veal came out, we were beyond full, that many rich meat dishes was a bold choice. The veal was also quite good but forgettable in comparison or maybe i was just tired of red meats by then but If you had given it to me as a meal i would have been floored. Overall, great food, but wish we got the a la carte for more range of food.
Four of us went to dinner after our board meeting on Saturday night, and ordered the tasting menu which was excellent! It has a graceful progression from light to heavy; the ingredients, flavor and execution were all top-notch! I also think it is fairly priced at $165 for eight courses. What fell a little bit short was the service. Although there were many servers bringing the drink and food, there was a general lack of attention for a restaurant at this level. There didn’t seem to be one who’s primarily responsible for our table - it was hard to get anyone’s attention. My major gripe was about the wine service. I found the wine pairings for the tasting menu a rip-off - $130 for a selection of obscure wines retailing for $10-20 a bottle! So we ordered a bottle of 2012 Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny instead which I think was an excellent value at $195. To my horror, I noticed that they brought out a 2012 Fourrier Gevrey-Chambertin after our first toast! It was a much lesser wine however only $10 cheaper at $185. The captain offered to switched it back to the correct bottle, but I declined just trying to be nice. So I was understandably disappointed when I received the bill without seeing any goodwill gesture from the restaurant. I asked the captain to do something that he sees fit, and he was nice enough to take $35 off the bottle and remove the charges for water and two drinks. Overall, I think it could be a solid Michelin 1-star restaurant if they elevate the service level; 2-star if there are more exotic ingredients and a couple of more innovative courses.
The food was delicious and carefully displayed. However, the portions are miniscule for what they charge. $20 for a pair of scallops? You have to be kidding me!
The atmosphere is very elegant and the lighting and decor all tasteful. But the service was below the standard I would expect at a first-rate eatery: one of the waiters tripped over a chair and dropped a dish; the sommelier/waiter attending to our table spilled from the decanter but didn’t replace my glass which was sticky at the stem from the spill.
Not a good enough value to return, sadly.
Menton serves the finest food I’ve had in Boston. The caviar service is an amazing idea! Simple but very refined.
The service was outstanding. As a sommelier myself I was very happy with the wine program, all the beverages are well curated and reasonably priced (compare to their values)
It is a budget to invest in that type of dinner, if you have it you are not going to be disappointed.
Thank you for the nice happy anniversary note ;)
I came here to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was amazing. It was the best service I have ever received for a Boston restaurant.
We celebrated by dining at the Chef's Table. This was our first time at Menton so we didn't know what to expect. Everyone who served us was quick, efficient and attentive. The Head of the house was extremely friendly and accommodating throughout our entire meal. Our menu was customized for the occasion as was desert! Our food came out quickly but it still took us about 3 hours to go through the 8 course Chef's whim dinner. We will definitely return even if it's not for a special occasion.
Attention to detail was very evident. Our server Danielle was very knowledgeable of Menton's extensive wine list which contained many unique wines, ones you will never see elsewhere. Food and service was what one would expect from a restaurant of Menton's caliber, excellent. Another nice aspect was one never felt rushed, the dinner was at a pace set by the diner, not the restaurant, which was very much appreciated. An very pleasurable experience. Can't wait to return.
I have to say my dinner at Menton was one of my top dinner experiences...ever. The food was outstanding, starting from the free oysters with champagne granita that was sent to our table shortly after being seated, to the bonus mini french desserts just before leaving. Everything in between was spectacular, and the service provided really made you feel special, and made you feel comfortable in shelling out a bit more money than I was normally comfortable with. The menu is limited, but I guarantee it has something for everyone, and what it lacks in options in more than makes up for in flavor and perfect cooking. While not an every day restaurant, I would recommend Menton over and over again for special occasions.
My only "complaint" is that I selected a bar seating for my reservation (it was the only one left a week before the reservation), but depending on the clientele at the bar, it can get a bit noisy. that BARELY impacted the evening, but I would aim for dining room seating.
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.
