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.

First visit. Great food -- and great service. We sat in the bar area and next time would reserve main dining area, but definitely a great spot.

We were tremendously disappointed in the food, the service and the ambiance.

The food was fine but not anywhere near exceptional in preparation or presentation. We ordered the tasting menu and the first course was inelegantly placed in front of us before we even had a chance to order our dinner wine. We asked that the rest of the meal be brought after we had ordered our wine... which meant now very long gaps between courses. We appreciate the pacing of a tasting menu to table is an art but an expensive restaurant ( we paid 600 dollars including wine for two) simply has to be better than this. Staff is poorly trained, reaching in front of rather than standing behind to place new flatware for example. The decor was kind of cool but all the hard surfaces made the table of business people across the room sound like they were seated, shouting, at our table. I wouldn’t recommend, won’t go back.

Incredible. Once again quiet dinner date with my partner became memorable event. Food as always exceeded expectations. Service and attention to detail is impeccable. Going to Menton is like watching olympic athletes - highly skilled at superior level making everything seem so easy . Chef Lucas delivers incredibly delicious food , everyone in restaurant working as seamless, well synchronized team. Not only you get amazing food but you also feel great from beginning to end , whether or not you enjoy fancy dining. And it is the place you are willing to try to eat scallop and duck for the first time in your life and not regretting it. Can't wait for another date night with my partner.

We did the chefs tasting menu, 3 out of 6 dishes were outstanding but the others just good. Also the portion size is on the small side, which is fine if you are getting the wine pairing, but otherwise you will still be hungry at the end. The really good dishes were the foie gras, corn risotto, and lamb filet. Also the parker house roll was really good but all other breads are served cold which is not my preference. They were really good about following allergy restrictions and service was outstanding.

Amazing experience - took my son (a chef) there for his 26th birthday and the whole evening was incredible. The food, the service, everything from start to finish was perfect. Sure it's expensive but for the top of the line in Boston, totally worth it.

We were celebrating a birthday. When I made the reservation I noted that my wife was a vegetarian and asked if could accommodate this. When we arrived our server already knew about my request and offered us several alternatives. Throughout our meal the service was extremely professional but also very pleasant. Each dish we ordered was was excellent and included a couple of complimentary small dishes too. We were extremely satisfied with the entire experience at Menton and are looking forward to a return visit soon.

Had been here many years ago. Was underwhelmed by our meal. Food was still good. Unfortunately we were expecting more creative and unique dishes. We had the Chef’s whim meal. Definitely a significant let down from our previous experience years ago.

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.
