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.

My husband and I made reservations weeks in advance fully looking forward to this dining experience however we were extremely disappointed with the food and service. The food came out of the kitchen extremely slow and it was nothing special. Our server was weeded very early on Android we saw her only twice. When we said something to the manager he did comp our dinner however I know we would have rather had a good experience. I cannot recommend the menton

Service was below standard. Staff was not coordinated and at times out of sync. The waiter was not paying attention and kept chatting with other staff. The decor is casual, while the food is not. Chairs and tables better fit a tavern. The food is great if you can put up with the rest.

We had an excellent "Chef's Whim". One of the guests identified an allium allergy at the start, but her dish was still prepared with ingredients that caused a reaction. We only wish they were more careful about this. Food for other guests was well prepared and very well enjoyed.

Still highly recommend this restaurant for a special evening or celebration. Not an everyday place; the food and price tag reflect this.

Absolutely fantastic. We had a hard day of travel and we’re looking forward to just sitting down, relaxing, and enjoying good food and company. The staff was kind and gracious, they even added a few extras because of our horrid travel story (many flight cancellations and a 7 hour drive). The food was cooked to perfection and provided an array of flavors and textures. We decided to splurge on the wagyu course and it did not disappoint with buttery smooth pieces that melted in our mouth. We will definitely be back next time we visit Boston!

We were excited to try Menton, and overall it was good but I’m giving 3 stars for the price tag.the piece of fish we were served was so sad. We also added the truffle supplement and they did nothing to the dish- couldn’t taste a hint of truffles. The foie gras and dessert were the stars of the show

I HATE writing bad reviews. But honesty I was disappointed and underwhelmed. Both me and my friend had flies in our drinks, the manager quickly took them away and replaced them and apologized. Our food was just ok and the tiniest portions. I ordered the lobster mushroom not realizing that I would be paying $40 for a small plate of tough mushrooms, my friend got the wagyu pasta which was the most expensive bolognese either of us had ever seen. GROUND FULLY COOKED WAGYU!? Excuse me? The only upside was that we ordered tea for desert which was actually pretty good.

For shame, Barbara Lynch, for shame. You've gone to great lengths to have great food and a good staff, only to have the food served in a poorly lit hospital operating room with louder than New York City subway noise. There's not a molecule of sound dampening in the place. Austere doesn't cover the decor. Boring, maybe, if you weren't deaf after eating there. Staff was decent, though I wondered why we provided allergy information, since they didn't know it until after we ordered. Then again, there was no toilet paper in the ladies room. This ranks currently as the worst 300.00 dining experience to date. It pains me to dish a restaurant during the last days of the pandemic, but if the shoe fits, wear it.

Really disappointed with the experience at Menton. We had a reservation at 8:30 to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were not seated until 9:15. We did the tasting menu and wine pairing. The food was fine, but didn’t live up to the standard I would expect from a restaurant like Menton. Moreover, the pacing was terrible. We waited over 30 minutes between some courses (and finished our wine before the food even came out) and were rushed through others (so that we ended up at one point with 3 different glasses of wine on the table each). Despite letting the restaurant know ahead of time that we were celebrating a birthday, there was no recognition or extra steps taken. For a meal that cost as much as this one did, we left feeling disappointed and will likely not return. Menton was once one of the best restaurants in Boston, but next time we have an occasion to celebrate, we will turn to somewhere that can meet our expectations.

We sat at the chef’s table which was tremendous fun. Special attention constantly given, answering all the questions we posed about the marvelous food and great wine pairings. We felt they truly cared about all aspects our enjoyment. The chef was very informative about ingredients and expressed great joy about his work and his colleagues.

I have to say that for the price I was expecting a lot more. The service is very good, and so is the ambiance. Elegant and relax. The food is certainly elaborated, a lot of work, but is not impressive. The wine selection is excellent in the pairing. The wine list is impressive. Very clean restrooms.

Beautiful restaurant. Service was terrible: empty pre-dinner cocktail glasses sat on the table for the ENTIRE meal — which took FAR too long — anywhere from 30-45 minutes between courses. And the food was mediocre. Lovely but not tasty. Never thought we would leave Waygu beef on the plate but we both did: not seasoned, not tender, just blah.

We arrived and were assaulted by a sewer smell at the front door. The smell continued inside. We were seated but the smell was intense. We had to leave. They were gracious and did not charge us a cancellation fee. Someone else told us they had a similar experience and it turned out to be the cheese tray. I find that hard to believe. I like good smelly cheeses, but if this was a cheese tray they should keep it in the next state. This was a distinct and overwhelming smell of a backed up sewer. Too bad. I would have liked to try Menton

Menton is one of my favorite destination restaurants. I have been celebrating my birthday there for the last few years. My expectations are always exceeded - especially when Jean is taking care of us. He is one of the best in the industry - so genuine and a true gem of a person. Thank you for a night to remember!

Food was delectable. Service and atmosphere equally appealing. Only complaint is that the waiter offered a souffle on the house as the fois gras did not appeal to us and then charged us for it.

The service staff was top n notch and knowledgeable. The indoor resturant was spacious enough with high ceiling , most staff wearing masks, that I was comfortable eating indoors during covid/delta (9/8/21). We had the tasting menu with wine paring. Each course was wonderful and the pairings were spot on. The course (corn chowder with crab) and the course of turbot) were our favorite. The course with pork was not my favorite (personal preference) and the rabbit course was very nice. The bread served was boring. We ordered foie gras torchion for an upcharge; itwas delicious and worth the extra cost IMO.
