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.

A good deal at half the price?

This used to be an amazing destination restaurant. It is no longer; it’s set for the Marriott Courtyard guests who wander in from next door for a la carte (and might be reasonable for that).

We were only one of two tables seated and the only one having the tasting. The tasting menu was the same price as our last visit but not anywhere near the presentation, quality, and cuisine. It disappointed from the monkfish on steakhouse-grade mashed to the stale macarons.

I don’t really know what to say. The staff did their absolute best at ever step, but this is hardly a flagship. Menton should drop their prices by two-thirds or just become an extension of Sportello. One of our courses was even a tiny potion of a Sportello dish.

Just awful for the space. I’d give it one star if not for the heroic efforts of the service team. I’m so sorry.

For the price, I only found Menton so so. The service was top-notch but the food was nothing spectacular. It was also rather loud and hard to carry a quiet conversation.

I’m a solo diner. That doesn’t mean I want to be crammed into a table next to the doors of the kitchen, especially when the place is half empty on a Friday night. The speed of servers rounding my table to get to the kitchen and the doubled mirror where you could see servers lurking in front of the kitchen doors made my seat feel frenetic. Seeing another solo diner at a nice window seat across the restaurant made me wonder just where I went wrong in life.

Had three dishes plus the gifts from the chef, nothing stood out though they were all beautifully executed and technically correct. Really, nothing to specifically point out, just a certain something was missing and goodness knows it might’ve just been my slightly depressed mood. Skip the bread, it was mediocre.

Despite my grouching about the location of the table, service was exceptionally attentive, the best thing about the experience. They quickly replaced a drink I was not enjoying with something else, and I felt perfectly taken care of.

Overall, it was a nice experience but one I’d likely not repeat. I eat out for the food, and this was perfectly just ok.

Disappointing with vary variable execution across tasting menu and underwhelming wines in the flight. Would pay more to get the real deal, but at these prices certainly expect consistency. Very nice location and decor. Ambience balanced.
Staff especially maitre d' saved the day, but would not return unless obligated.

Menton is one of our favorite restaurants. It's very high-end, but not at all pretentious. It's all about the food and service. The food is fantastic--unusual and creative combinations of ingredients and flavors, served almost like pieces of art. The service is super friendly and helpful, but still professional. (I don't like it when servers act like they're your newest BFF.) The recently renovated dining room has a clean, understated design, but is louder than before.

This was an very good experience overall. My husband and I did the Chef's Whim with wine pairings. The service and the wine was spectacular. The knowledge of the servers was wonderful. Sadly, there was nothing that memorable food-wise. It was all very good but at that price point I was expecting AMAZING (or at least a few showstoppers). I would have a hard time recommending this to a friend as it was just so much $ for "good" food.

Dats with my wife, and we waned to have a special dining experience. I am a long-time fan of Number Nine Park, and enjoy Barbara Lynch’s restaurants in general. The newly redesigned restaurant brings the atmosphere down a notch in terms of fancy or exquisite, but it remains a setting that is special. We ordered the Chef’s Whim (tasting menu), and it was a fine dining adventure! The staff is extremely knowledgeable and made the dinner even more enjoyable - few places could match the service. Cocktails and wine were fabulous too. It is a dinner you must not rush through, so plan a minimum sitting of two hours and enjoy!

If you want to project the sense that you're spending a lot of money, so that the occasion seems really special, this is the place to go. But don't go expecting amazing food; it's actually quite ordinary. We had the grilled octopus--have had better at Little Donkey in Cambridge at a fraction of the price. The burrata too disappointed--have bought much better at Whole Foods. The wine list is geared at those on an expense account. What's really good about it? The service is excellent--very attentive, nicely pitched between being there and holding back to give you space.

Impressive dinner and service. The tasting menu was amazing and I am glad we got it. I needed a change to some of the dishes and they accommodated me without seeming bothered. The service is amazing and up there with some Michelin star places I have been to in NY. It is pricey but the respect they give you and the freshness of the food makes you really understand why they set their prices there. It is a special occasion type of place so if you are willing to spend money you might as well do it right. I highly recommend this place and will be going back (as we try to do at least once a year).

Having eaten at The French Laundry and other 1 and 2 Michelin star restaurants in NY, California and throughout Europe, I would say this was one of the 2-3 best meals of my life: The 8 course chef's whimsy with wine pairings. Superb and worth every penny! Each course was a marvel of culinary creativeness and excellence. The service and attentiveness to individual preferences was world class. The only thing detracting from absolute perfection was that the rolls that came with the meal (as opposed to the one before) were just okay, but this is a minor criticism in the context of an extraordinary experience. It's too bad that Boston can't support more restaurants of this calibre. By the way, if you order a la carte, a meal is not very expensive, with entrees topping out in the high $30's. But go for the tasting menu!

We had an absolutely perfect meal, celebrating a family birthday. The service and the food were fantastic! The staff has the perfect balance of being involved/attentive and not being intrusive. Each unique dish was prepared with flair and wonderful ingredients. Three days later we are all still talking about the experience, and comparing our favorite dishes. Lobster, Foie gras, Gnocchi, and Vegetable fricassee all competed. We couldn't have been more pleased!!!

The food is delicious, I had seared foie gras, which is amazing. The pasta is fantastic. I am very critical about pasta and I always have a high standard. But both the lobster spaghetti and veal agnolotti are outstanding. I had cod for my entree, and it is surprisingly delicious. One of the best fish I had in Boston. The service is impeccable and the staff here is unmatched.
