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.

    What a treat! The food was delicious and beautifully plated. The staff was extremely accommodating - my husband wanted to do some items from the Prix Fixe menu and some from the Chef's Tasing menu, which was not a problem. Our waiter, Evan, also did a wine pairing for my husband, which he enjoyed immensely. The Wagyu beef, the Fall squashes, the Mangalitsa pork, the Pheasant and of course, the chocolate souffle were prepared perfectly with so many interesting flavors. The service was excellent, especially Evan. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.

    The wine flight was the only good thing Despite the self perception of a high end French restaurant, the food tasting was horrendous. Honestly the food was bland or overly salted. There are much better French options in Boston.

    We were delighted to have discovered Menton. Upon our arrival we were impressed by the tasteful interior design and the friendliness of the staff. We had an attentive, elegant waiter who was knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. Everything John recommended was perfect. We decided to go with the chef's menu. Every plate was wonderful. We had an incredible evening and we feel very comfortable recommending the restaurant.

    A very unfortunate experience at this restaurant. The food was simply badly executed, meat undercooked (way below medium/medium rare which we ordered), including the pork, which is dangerous, wagyu beef was not a wagyu cut, the dishes were too salty, and flavors simply not there overall. Even the bread rolls reminded us of airplane quality. In addition, there was a big delay in service to begin with, but also between dishes and throughout the evening. While staff was polite and courteous they could not make up for the bad food. Certainly not a fine dining experience or even close to one. It simply was a bad dining experience, regardless of price which is unfortunately the only aspect that imitates fine dining.

    When booked via OpenTable it did not show it was a special menu and a different price. So we were surprised. We enjoyed 3 of the 6 courses. In comparison to our previous visits, we were disappointed. The food and waiter were outstanding in our previous visits. Our waiter only came over twice and only asked about drinks. We saw other waitstaff checking in with their tables frequently.

    Fun experience BUT they obscure the taste of food. Scallop tasted only of persimmons. Taste of sea urchin totally obscured by strong white pudding concoction, The wine pairing was just bad. Bubbly from Britain! Orange wine. The best that Armenia has to offer. Better to just order a bottle of red Burgundy. Overall a disappointment not to be repeated, especially considering the pric

    Our food was underwhelming. A few things stood out but mostly I found the waygu to be chewy and lacking in flavor. My partner complained his was cold. The truffles were flavorless and shouldn’t have been offered in the pre-fixe. We generally enjoy our food most when it’s worth the price. It’s far better to walk away thinking that the meal deserved more than the bill rather than less. I think there’s potential but the execution needs to improve. The service and staff are exceptional. The food should keep pace with the same standard otherwise the takeaway is that a return visit is not worth the time or money. We come every year because one of our first dates was here, but we don’t anticipate coming back for a while because the food did not compare to other restaurants we’ve been to recently like La Fina in Andover and Ocean in Kennebunk where the food did match the standard of service and price. Menton still holds a special place in our memories but we would like to see the food improve to a quality that was there before the pre-fixe and tasting only options. There was less disappointment before when we could choose our own course options more openly.

    I and my wife visited there for our anniversary. It was so nice that all of the staffs said 'Happy anniversary' to us. We really felt welcoming. Our server was very professional and friendly. She offered us complimentary a glass of champaign for our anniversary. We really appreciated it. We felt like everyone was taking good care of us while we were having meal. It took us 2 hours to have the course meal. So worthy and made our anniversary extra special! The service was excellent! Thank you!

    Our a party of four had a grand time. I must say the service outshined the food. And the food is pretty damn good. Our waiter James was an instant friend and guide for the night. The food, and we ordered extras from the chefs tasting menu and the duck was a veritable banquet. A few of us change seats at the beginning of the mail and of course the wait staff was confused about where to place the plates. Discontinued all night long and became a fun little game that added to our festivities. This One we will savor for quite a while!

    Spectacular meal with outstanding service. Especially enjoyed the staff and how warm and friendly they were. No pretense - just excellent customer service without any attitude. It felt genuine. And we especially enjoyed James. He has an amazing antenna for reading the diners. Knows when to play and when to give way to privacy. And then to top that with his knowledge of food and wine too - he is a find! We needed this night out and it surpassed our expectations. Which of course we had no doubts but its just wonderful to see a full restaurant, happy diners and a great restaurant team working in unison. Thank you as always for a memorable evening and a meal we will not soon forget!

    Went to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The service was excellent and it is indeed a good place to celebrate your special occasions. The food was average as we tried the 4 course menu. But definitely it was a different dining experience all together. Would recommend this place for the experience.

    We were not seated right away and had to wait for 15 min despite the table was ready. We took chef’s menu. it was good overall but the lamb dish was inedible - the dish was not prepped properly, was completely uncooked and very plain - basically raw piece of lamb with tons of fat.
