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.

this was our second visit and we were really underwhelmed! The service was sloppy, but most of all the food was totally unappetizing! we had put in. two orders for VERMONT WAGYU and the steaks were so so disappointing! they were not prepared well and were hard. The Turbot was ok. Nothing to write home about. But truly disappointed with the steaks! this was our last visit to the restaurant! We will not be back there again!

We came in for the chefs whim. The restaurant was unpleasantly hot. The server was rude, wine glasses were left empty several times. They served food I was allergic to knowing all food allergies prior to starting the meal. Plates were very small and paced very slowly. This was the most expensive meal I've ever had but the food and service were sub par. I will not be returning

We tried the chef's whim and really enjoyed it! There were so many great parts to every dish, lots of complexity & flavor, and great wine pairings. The Service was excellent, our lead waiter was very professional but also a lot of fun! He even let us get a sneak peek at the chefs table/kitchen at the end of our meal. We will definitely be back!!

The food with wine pairing was amazing. Service was great. The only issue is both my husband and I got really sick later that night. We really hadn't had anything else that day that would make us sick.

Atmosphere and staff attitude was casual. Not what I was expecting from a fine dinning restaurant. Food quality was also average, especially at $ 100 per head cost. Some guests were wearing gym shorts and sneakers and were very very loud. Totally messed up the fine dinning experience. Will not be going again to this place.

James was an outstanding waiter!!! The entire staff was helpful and excellent. Great food, VERY accommodating for special dietary needs, which was was important for us--so, thanks, Chef! Great lamb, dessert, fois gras, etc. (Adding comments on the food because it's about the food: the broth for the squab we found too salty, and I found the strawberry foam was an awkward taste with the item it was paired with. I understand the creativity, but it was an odd mix to my palate.) Great staff from check in to check out. Glad the music was neither too loud or oppressive, and thanks for NOT playing jazz!!

The restaurant was beautiful and service impeccable. We loved the cocktails and wine. The food was a bit disappointing. We thought it lacked flavor and based on the price and the restaurant’s reputation, we expected a more inventive, flavorful experience. The foie gras, duck, and prime beef were underwhelming. We left disappointed and our wallets a bit thinner.

Hadn't been in a while and it appears the main dining room going for more of an "industrial" feel in terms of decor and furnishings. The menu offers a lot of intriguing tastes and combinations with each of the courses. Service timing was excellent however with the presentation of each course it would have been helpful to get a little description of the dish and its ingredients. Fine dining in Boston offers lots of options I wouldn't be in a hurry to return.

Service was slow, room was incredibly noisy —not just a rather raucous party at a nearby table. The sablefish crude was superb and almost made the evening worthwhile. I have hosted special events—a junior colleague’s partnership, my own anniversary—at Menton over the years. The vibe has changed and I will find another venue to celebrate in the future.

Culinary delight!!!!!! We had the Chef's Whim 7 course dinner and added caviar and truffles and were beyond pleased. This is an upscale restaurant but no dress code. It has a laid back atmosphere, not stuffy or pretentious. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. We were there about two hours and it was very enjoyable.
The courses were mostly new and usual preparations to us, and all so amazingly delicious in their own rite.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR AN OUTSTANDING CULINARY EXPERIENCE.

It is tough to return to normal service given COVID-19. We were warned before hand that service would be slower than expect. What we got was good. We will return to Boston in September and will expect service to return to the level was are accustomed .

We tried the chefs whim menu with the wine paring. There were only two course that were very good the others were subpar. The wines we extremely sweet, only two good reds and the champagne was excellent Very o we priced for the quality and the final product. In have spent half as much at l’altelier jöel robouchon the experience was ten times better. Perhaps the proposition for the a la carte menu may be solid but for this tasting menu it is far far far from acceptable

Wine list is a joke, extremely mover priced. Some cases more than 500% markup...

I would pass on the experience......

Do not try it,

This is one of the very best restaurants I've been lucky enough to experience in Boston -- especially for the food and service. While pricey, all dishes we were ordered not only were almost downright palate-perfect, but some were intriguing. My Papardelle was the rare type that had other food cooked into it -- in this case, lamb -- and the foie gras was sitting in a raspberry syrup, giving it an unusual savory/sweet affect. (One thing to note is that the foie gras was more of a rich pate, rather than classically prepared foie gras, so be prepared if you order it.) While the duck was a little gamey for my taste, my husband absolutely savored it. If you're up for spending the extra $$, I can't help but think that the tasting/pairing menu would be a great choice.

Menton is a well deserved member of Barbara Lynch's inimitable collection, and we'll be sure to return soon!

It was a true pleasure to return to a restaurant whose performance was uniformly excellent. After the long period of social isolation and cooking for ourselves, what a joy to be served food that we know we could not make for ourselves at such a standard. The friendly guidance on wine selection was also impressive.
