    It was nice to return to this 4-Star restaurant after many years. Food was excellent. Menu is limited and pricy but it was our anniversary. The main dining area is dark so if you like it brighter, ask for the room to the right as you enter.

    Too noisy, tables very close to one another We can hardly see the food due to poor illumination Tasting menu with no imagination and no dish to remember We asked if we could change the dessert and they said"no problem", (even suggested one...)but they charged it EXTRA without warning!! Not a good experience, overall, and certainly a bad vallue for money

    The food and service was excellent. The gnocchi was delicate and delicious. The rib eye steak was spectacular and cooked to order perfectly. The seafood assortment looked yummy. Great soufflés. This was a graduation dinner and the dessert for my son came with congratulations written in chocolate. I had mentioned when making the reservation it was a special occasion. The wine was wonderful both the Gigondas we had with dinner French white burgundy we had with our appetizer. We would absolutely go back any time we are in Boston.

    My favorite restaurant in Boston. Ricotta fritters were perfectly cooked, with a touch of honey. The raw bar (oysters, shrimp, crab) was fine, though the shredded crab was not up to par. Main courses of sea scallops and rib-eye were perfection, as was the chocolate souffle shared dessert. Wonderful, and extensive, wine list and whiskeys made the experience more memorable. Highly recommend.

    We normally love going to 9 Park. This time however the food was not nearly as good or inventive as it usually is. For the cost of the entire meal we were extremely disappointed. We will likely not be going back.

    We had the tasting menu. Most was very good but the pork dish was very tough. Wine tasting is nice but very small pours and expensive. they need to loosen up a bit on the pours. Waitress was very nice but service was very slow. I an in no hurry to go back, so overall a bit disappointed

    Impeccable service from Jordan, our server. Fantastic cocktails from Diego. Perfect table with a view as requested for a very special night out. And of course, the food - just exquisitely done in every way. I also loved that, unlike many restaurants of this caliber, where you get about two bites per serving, the serving sizes are appropriate for the price! Highly recommend for a special night out.

    It's so wonderful to go to a great restaurant for a special event like a birthday or anniversary and know that everything, from the appetizer at the beginning to the dessert at the end, is going to be spectacular. That is our experience at No. 9 Park. The appetizers, shellfish platter (amazingly fresh oysters, large cocktail shrimp,and a crab cocktail with the might mignonette sauce a cocktail sauce laced with horseradish), the prune infused gnocchi with foil gras (melt in your mouth), were a truly promising start. That led up to the two entrées, the lamb fondue (a total surprise wonder with croutons of brioche paired with chunks of delicious lamb to dip into melted gorgonzola, and a memorable arugula salad with a mouthwatering lemon drizzle) and the seared scallops with radish and artichoke hearts (a delightful combination together with a farro side. The desserts were the obligatory chocolate soufflé with vanilla sauce Grand Marnier, and pear vanilla sorbet. All superb! What a great feast!!!

    We attended for Easter dinner. The waiter did not know the menu. We were not told that the menu was not individual entrees but price fix at 4 courses or 5 course tasting menu. Minimum cost of $125. The salad was large and too heavy My son wanted beef but not an option this night. The main entree was salmon or pork. The salmon was liked at our table, but the pork was very disappointing. Both deserts were disappointing. For a meal of five with 3 glasses of wine, I spent $850 for dinner. This meal was a major mistake. It was Easter and we were happy to be together at a restaurant with a great reputation. We normally go there once per year for our wedding anniversary. But this was by far not what I was hoping for. You can do better No 9 Park!

    We had a wonderful time dining at No. 9 Park. The service was impeccable — the staff was incredibly detail oriented, constantly changing our flatware as needed, refilling water, bread service, etc. They had a way of making us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant on a busy Saturday evening, which was amazing, and something that is very hard to come by these days! The food was out of this world. Two of us opted for the 7 course dinner (typically six, but we decided to try the prune stuffed gnocchi in addition) and everything was cooked to perfection. I was floored by how quickly dinner went by as we were wined and dined, and they created an atmosphere that made you just not want to leave. We had a view of the common which was more than ideal — I could not have selected a better table myself! Kudos to everyone who worked the evening of Saturday 4/16, they did not disappoint!

    No. 9 Park has been a favorite over the years but this visit was not the outstanding meal I had come to expect. The salad was very average and the scallops were good but not outstanding. I have come to expect outstanding food from this restaurant so it was a bit disappointing. Service was solid and ambiance is always great here.
