This was the best meal I’ve had on numerous trips to Boston. The food is superb (we had the tasting menu) and the staff went all out to accommodate us. I look forward to many more fine dining experiences at No. 9 Park.

No. 9 Park defines "classy." It had been many years since my last visit and I was just as impressed. For me, this is a "special occasion" place though for others (the tony residents of Beacon Hill, for example) this might be their go-to neighborhood place. Either way, it's worth every hard-earned dollar and I'll look forward to coming again.

Love No. 9.. It never fails to impress me with it's service and food; Jonathan was our server and was full of wine knowledge , which i alway like because i know my wines better then most, but he was on a different level, so we had a wonderful conversation. We started with Oysters that were perfect, i love that they have notes and remember that my date has a gluten allergy , she saids they have the best gluten free bread ever. She have steak i had duck , both perfect. She enjoyed a half bottle of Abarino that was lovely and i the Laurel one of my favorite Priorats , it pair nicely with the duck. We enjoyed a nice desert , i had the chocolate souffle' which was wonderful. We had a nice corner table, it was not overly busy so the noise level was good for conversation. Thank you Jonathan and thank you No. 9 Park for a lovely evening. I just love this place, be back soon.

Exceptional food, beautifully presented, by friendly, professional servers. From start to finish No. 9 Park is a place you'll want to be, and won't want to leave. Nice selection of cocktails, and a large list of wines by the glass if you don't want a bottle. Beautiful view of Boston Common in front of you and the Massachusetts State House up to the right. An amazing night. Bring your appetite and your taste buds!

As usual, this place was amazing. The prune gnocchi is an absolute must-have. The Duet of Rohan Duck was delicious. And the service was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The ambiance could be a little more intimate, which would probably help mitigate the moderate noise level, but this is a minor quibble. While this place is not at all cheap (even if you don't drink, expect to spend 100-125/person), it is absolutely worth every cent.

Absolutely amazing food and service. I had chosen to go here after reading several reviews and looking at the tasting menu. I wanted to propose to my long-time girlfriend here and it went perfectly. The food was amazing, as were the wine parings.
On top of that, the staff was on point. I hadn't told them about the occasion, not wanting to draw undue attention to it, but once my waitress saw the ring, she immediately got us champagne to celebrate, and they even included a copy of the menu congratulating us when we were finished.
I could write an entire novel about how great the food was. But to make it short. The flavors and dishes were complex, unique, and worked wonderfuly with their wine pairings. We ate very little during the day in anticipation, and the first bite of the salad let us know we made the right choice.
I was a particular fan of the prune-stuffed gnocchi with foie gras. The rich fattyness combined with the prunes was a delight.
10/10 definite recommendation.

Though pricey, as Barbara Lynch tends to be, everything about this restaurant is perfection. The complementary macaroon at the end of the meal is one of the smartest pieces of marketing she could ever come up with--beyond, beyond!!

The dining rooms are elegant, the dishes a pure delight, and all in all, this renowned restaurant never falls short of its reputation.

As always, every aspect of the No. 9 experience is just so special. The staff are warm, friendly so well versed on the menu. The team gave us perfect guidance on wine and food pairings while knowing to push a little for adventure. Each plate was well thought out and perfectly complete with flavor and detail. The settings beautiful and so peaceful. Thank you so much!

FRankly, a most disappointing experience, considering the vaunted reputation . I wanted somewhere special for a young fried who is professional chef but she agreed it was not up to expectations. I felt as though cook staff was on auto-pilot, first course could have been on an airline and the halibut was dry and tasteless, dessert also

We responded to the restaurant's "special occasion" inquiry that it was our 51st anniversary, and, when the check arrived, we saw that they had comped all of our alcohol, including 2 glasses of champagne and 4 glasses of wine that the waiter recommended. It was an extraordinary act of hospitality. The food and service also met our very high our expectations. The one less than stellar aspect was that the main dining room design and ambiance don't rise to the same level as everything else. We recommend this restaurant as one of the best in the city

From the moment we were welcomed and seated I couldn't fault the place. The staff were very attentive but not overbearing . The food was excellent and well presented.

Certainly it's expensive, but that should be expected from a restaurant of this quality.

I'd have no hesitation in recommending this venue.

We had looked forward to dining at No. 9 Park for a couple of weeks. The quality of the meals was variable. Great atmosphere but the service was lacking. Multiple times we had to motion to our waiter for assistance. The price tag did not match the quality nor service. We wouldn't go back!
