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.

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!

My wife and I have been planning on coming here for years, so we were both very excited when we finally made the reservation. I’m not sure if I caught them on a bad day or what, but the service was disappointing. It was almost as though the B team was working. Plates weren’t cleared, waitress wrote our order down on paper, little knowledge on wine pairings, bread served after first course, etc. I consider myself a foodie and have been when you go out to eat at a 3 Michelin star restaurant, you expect a certain level of service. I knew we wouldn’t be getting that right off the bat, when a few tables down from us, a family of four with two young boys, were at their table playing video games on their iPhones. Menton is a fancy date night out for couples. Not a family restaurant like Denny’s. Anyway, the tasty food didn’t make up for the lack of service. I’d rather go to @tastingcounter again than Menton.

We first came here the night we were engaged, everything was incredible. Three years later (tonight) we came for my birthday and again, incredible. We always opt for the chef’s whim, if we’re going to Menton, we’re doing it right. It was a much different tasting menu but it was grear. The real star of the event, the service at Menton. The hostesses, servers and Somm wait on you like I’ve never experienced before. Every single person wished me a happy birthday.

Also, they have amazing candles in both bathrooms. A-mazing.

Did the tasting menu and found that there were too many rich courses in a row.
Pork Belly, Foie Gras then a pasta course with cheese followed by lamb. Wish there was at least one lighter course instead of all that fatty food! Service was great though and they made the evening special. Food was very good although my cardiologist wasn't pleased with me!

Superb!!! from start to finish Menton was amazing. We had the Crudo, the ravioli, the spaghetti and then the Bass. Kitchen split the dishes so we could try more things, presentation was kept intact. All the food was fresh and delicious! Great wine list, and desserts were delicious! would highly recommend! (smaller things like water service and bread were also amazing!)
Wait staff also super knowledgeable and recommended some great choices.

We were exceptionally pleased with the chef’s tasting menu. It was well paced and we were able to enjoy it while still making it to the theater for a 8 pm show. John our waiter and sommelier was very helpful at matching wine to the menu. We will definitely be returning I the future.

Get the Chef's Whim tasting menu, with the wine pairings. The Exec Chef and others who set the menu are incredible, bringing a much needed novelty to Boston's occasionally formulaic haut cuisine scene. It is a positively symphonic experience.

This was an out of town business dinner for me, so I did not know what to expect. The food and ambiance were very good and the service was impeccable. The waiter seemed to know when to stay away while we were deep in discussion and seamlessly refill wine glasses almost unnoticed. The noise level was very low, perfect for having in-depth discussions and being able to hear the conversation. I would highly recommend.

Chef's Whim tasting menu was fantastic. The service was absolutely impeccable. Noise level was quite high but as night wore on got better. Lady with the ridiculously loud laugh, get a clue, seriously.
Wine pairings were spot on , but huge price for dinner for two with only ONE wine pairing was $592.00 with tip , yikes . If only I could eat like this every day of my life.

We had gone to Menton many, many years ago when it first opened and had the chef‘s tasting menu with wine pairings. The wines were from truly exotic countries and were awful. As a result, we had not been back and went to L’Espalier for special occasions. With the closing of L’Espalier we decided to give Menton a second chance and we were very glad we did. The food was excellent (but a little short of spectacular) and the service was exceptional. Thankfully, the wine pairings with the chef‘s tasting menu were from countries known for their wine production and were generally quite good.

This was our second trip to Menton and sadly it did not meet our expectations. Our first experience was memorable and perfect. This second trip was lackluster. The service was not even close to our first experience. Food was delicious and my wine outstanding but we will not make a third trip.

A disaster! We went for our 30th Anniversary (in town visiting our daughter). We’d been twice before and had truly great meals. Unfortunately, our experience this time was far below expectations. While the food concepts were mostly excellent, only two courses were up to par in taste and presentation. And the service was exceptionally bad. Our waiter was surly, inexperienced and completely overwhelmed. We asked for the sommelier to help choose a special burgundy. Never appeared. The waiter made a recommendation of two but didn’t know the difference between them. We bought an expensive bottle on feel. We had a forty minute wait between the fourth and fifth course. Hello?! No waiter. No wine, no food. Then he ran over with a cheap Syrah apologizing that he wasn’t authorized to open a better bottle by the glass. Then we had the last course. Another 20 minutes pass. He comes and asks if we wanted our check. We ask about our desserts. He says oh, they haven’t brought them yet? Sorry I’ve been overwhelmed by walk-ins. It seemed like the management was AWOL. If this dinner is the new normal at Menton, things are seriously out of sorts.

We were upgraded from bar seating to dining room seating because they had the space. We had not requested that, so it was a nice surprise. The only reason I do not give the food five stars is that two items were overly salty. The chef must be a smoker! The wine steward was very knowledgeable and actually gave us information about the winery which produced our wine, having been there himself. Wonderful experience overall.

Simple elegance. The restaurant was immaculate, and everyone from the bartender to the woman passing out bread was so friendly and professional. We had burrata with asparagus, lamb loin, and the chef made me an entree from the halibut that was on the tasting menu. Meyer lemon pudding and rhubarb and honey desserts. Everything was prepared perfectly, and we enjoyed every mouthful! The service was wonderful! Perfect restaurant to celebrate our anniversary! A definite 5 star from us!!
