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.

We have never been treated better at any other restaurant in Boston area before. The food was as outstanding as Menton’s service.

Menton was a lovely experience, but not quite perfect. The food and service were quite strong, but there was just something about it that didn't quite meet the price point. Maybe it was that the tables were so close - we could hear our neighbors' conversation with uncomfortable ease. It might be that the cocktails were good, but not spectacular. But in general, it was pretty stellar. The appetizers and entrees were delicious and well prepared. We'll go back sometime, again.

I feel terrible for leaving an unfavorable review, but feel I must. This was not a 4 diamond experience the night we had dinner at Menton’s. The service was slow, we think that we lost our waiter mid way through dinner. A decidedly unimpressive experience. Hope to find a better dining experience next time in Boston.

We dined on a weeknight and the restaurant was busy. We waited longer than usual for food and service. The bread came quite late, and the refill bread came towards the end of our meal. The food was decent but nothing like the original Menton before the revamp/renovation. Some dishes were good and others were ordinary. The minimal use of soft surfaces made for difficult conversation without raising of voices especially at a larger table.

The duck breast with mushroom ragoût, blackberry, porcini & black garlic purée was good, the duck cooked just pink and the elements well put together. The spaghetti with king crab, corn & chive was light but lacking in presentation and interest. The desserts were good but not extraordinary. Overall it was like dining in any other decent restaurant rather than a Barbara Lynch flagship. We definitely expected more of Menton and hope it will regain a little more of what made it outstanding before.

Beautiful special occasion restaurant. The tasting menu was divine. Delivered with ample time between courses so you could digest and get excited for the next one. Service was attentive, but not invasive. Very professional and knowledgeable. Made you feel very comfortable and welcome. A few tables are a bit close together. The restaurant was quiet and I could hear my dinner partner, but not the conversation of the neighboring table. If you are looking for a special night out, this is the place.

They shouldn’t participate in Dine out Boston. Obviously they don’t want to because the level of cooking and portion size was terrible. We had the 5 course tasting menu at $85 pp. minuscule offerings. Makes me not want to try dining there with the regular menu. Wine pairing which was only offered with the 5 course menu was great. Service was fantastic.

Such a warm and hospitable dining experience! I have been twice to Menton, once for me and my boyfriends anniversary and a second time for my parents anniversary. Both times have exceeded my expectations and they make sure we are taken care of and feel more than just average diners. The food has such detail in presentation and flavor. Being a restaurant manager myself, I notice the little details that mentons staff goes above and beyond for. Wonderful place to dine for special occasions or get togethers.

We went for the 5-course set menu during restaurant week. Let me start by saying a positive thing about my meal; the bread is excellent, from the soft sweet roll to start through to the flavourful fougasse it was some of the best I’ve had in the USA. Unfortunately, that’s about where the good things end.

I do not expect to spend $85 per head on food and still leave hungry, yet each of the five courses were depressingly small in size. Other tables who had ordered from the 3-course set menu appeared to have significantly larger portions each course. If the extra courses had been exciting or special this could be forgiven - but while the food was all good, nothing was exceptional. Service was fine, though rushed – on more than one occasion our plates were swept away while we were still chewing the final bite.

At half the price the overall experience would have been OK, but given the price and expectations the meal was simply disappointing.

Having a meal at Menton is a dining experience. The host and waiting staff are professional and attentive. They certainly contribute positively to the incredible dining experience. The food is exceptional. So delicious and each plate is a work of art.

Excellent service. Polite staff. Clean. Ambiance was nice not too loud. Not stuffy or pompous. Excellent cocktails. Wine pairing was 50/50. Food was good, not great and far from outstanding. The Chef’s Whim wasn’t whimsical. SKULL ISLAND PRAWN... average somewhat bland. TURBOT... quite good but a bit over salted. POLENTA SFORMATO... excellent, very delicate. BRAISED LAMB... good, but missing something, pasta too al dente. FOIE GRAS TERRINE... again quite good but a bit too sweet for my preference. BEEF CHEEKS... again good, but not great, under seasoned. DUCK... excellent as was the fig accompaniment, but the almond butter was too bitter and had to be used sparingly. WHITE PEACH MOUSSE... too sweet for my taste as was the wine pairing with too strong an alcohol taste. No foodgasm to be had. Will definitely experiment elsewhere before returning. 3.5 stars.

Went for the discount menu but had the 8 course tasting because the menu was so interesting. The food was superior and delicious, albeit served relatively slowly. Very expensive but worth it in a splurge.

As a "special occasion" restaurant, this is a solid go-to. We got the tasting menu, which was worth the money. Although my husband loved every bit of it, I found some of the dishes a little bland, and thought we waited an extra 10 minutes between courses. That said, the food was beautiful, the wait staff was attentive, and the ambiance was lovely. If I were to go again, I'd opt for a meal off the main menu, rather than the chef's whim.

From the moment we walked in the restaurant we were treated eloquently. The dining area was beautifully designed and created an amazing ambiance. The food was beyond words, each dish was amazing, but I’d love to not the Waygu carpaccio. It melted in your mouth and the cherries were a great acidic touch. Their wine selection is phenomenal! We had a smooth Oakley 2011 paulliac Bordeaux. I’ve saved the best for last, the service, each person who greeted us or simply came to pour water was simply professional. They seemed very well deserved of their jobs and I hope they continue what they’re doing for a long time. I will definitely be back!
