We had a lovely evening. Wine service was slow. We were seated at a very nice round table for 6 however, it was near the kitchen and bathroom hallways. Very hectic
area of the Restaurant. Would specify not to sit there again -especially for a table of 6. Food was very good. First course was served and we waited for wine. White was not chilled enough as well. Red selection was fine. It was very difficult for the waiter to serve in that area of the restaurant. In and out of Kitchen to my left.

The view of the lights on the Boston Common is a seasonal treat, but cannot compare to the tasty beautifully creative cuisine. The gluten-avoiders appreciated the hot, fresh-baked gluten-free yummy rolls!

This a very pretentious restaurant that survives on its location and prior reputation.

If you enjoy spending $45 for a 3 oz (i'm being generous on the size) fair, sirloin steak
and $ 19 for 6 oz of turnip soup, this may be the place for you.

It seems this is the place for the early middle age group to be seen, rather than going
for a nice meal with service that matches the prices.

This was probably our sixth time to No 9 Park. The food was outstanding as usual. However, the service really fell flat this time. In the past, we've received excellent service.

The service I expected started off really good with the confirmation call that didn't just cover confirming the reservation, but also any dietary restrictions or special requests we had (we were celebrating my wife's birthday, and she is a vegetarian.)

Arriving early, the hostess found a place for us at the bar, and then helped up moved to our table when it was available.

Our main waiter was the problem. At a meal like this, long periods should not go by where we have empty wine/drink glasses. This happened a number of times - which is really a loss for the restaurant (as we would have likely ordered an additional drink or two if they were more attentive.) We noticed adjacent tables (and also, remembering from our other experiences at No. 9 Park) getting free drinks or cookies with their checks - we got nothing extra. This last part just left kind of a sour taste, after a nice evening.

The supporting wait staff was very friendly and did a great job of explaining all the dishes they brought to our table (we did the six-course prix fixe.)

In the future, we will certainly got to No. 9 Park again. We just may not rush back.

Valet parking was shoddy and surprisingly pricey.
Host and hostess were friendly and cordial. Server was efficiently cold. ( not ready to make conversation, knowledgeable when asked questions about the menu). Food was excellently prepared and well presented. Pork loin was tough
and difficult to cut. All entrees were overpriced for
the portions. Overall dissapointed having been
to No 9 Park on several occasions previously.

Surprisingly poor. "Valet" parking? The female "valet" didn't approach our car when we pulled up. We had to exit the car and go to her. As for the food: We tried many dishes. The only memorable dish was smoked trout, which was delicious. The bread was, truly, awful. Served cold and doughy, sent back to the kitchen and returned warm and doughy. Ugh. Veal sweetbreads were dry and tasteless. Salmon -- a very small portion and nothing special. Chicken was supposed to be served "on a bed of apples" ... had not much taste and not much in the way of apples. A small bit of crispy chicken skin was tasty, but a tease. Salad was unremarkable. "Pear tartan" was absurd ... a whole pear on a dense, hard biscuit. Service was okay, but didn't help the overall disappointing experience. Ambiance is definitely more dour than lovely. Very clean crystal goblets cannot compensate for the low ceilings in this narrow-fronted brownstone.

I really don’t understand why this place is rated so high. The portions are extremely small (ordered the lamb and got two very small slivers) and it didn’t even taste good. Had to stop for more food on way home. Toughest lamb I have ever had. The wine, while great, is a stinking little 4oz pour for $15 (small glasses with a very small pour). If you have way to much money and don’t appreciate getting what you paid for then this place is for you! Don’t think I would ever go back, way to many other restaurants in this city that I can spend $180 at and get a hell of a meal. Literally left feeling like I got ripped off.

It had been way too long since we'd visited No. 9 Park and chose it for a special birthday. Everything was wonderful. Great, warm and knowledgeable service. The view overlooking the Boston Common is charming, especially during the holidays when all the trees are lit up. Best of all, No. 9 Park's cheese cart is an outstanding end to a meal, the best I've ever sampled outside of Paris.

Haven’t been to No 9 Park in a number of years. After a lovely performance of the Holiday Pops, I felt that my date and I would enjoy a nice meal. Number 9 continued to live up to it’s well deserved reputation as on of Boston’s finest dining establishments. Everything about our experience last night was second to none. The food, service, wine list, valet, friendly hostess, and even a heated coat closet exceeded our expectations! Highly recommended!

Have not been there in a year or so, as I don't live in Boston. Went to No. 9 last Saturday night. The nicest staff was the hostess. Table staff was very confusing: too many people, no one in charge, not particulalry warm or friendly as I would expect for this price of meal. We were seated, then just sat there for what seemed like forever; finally menus arrived. Service was spotty during the meal (except for the server delivering rolls and water). Never knew who our server was as there were too many. At the end, we just sat there; had to ask for our bill, but didn't know who to ask. Timing of service is critical in a restaurant of this caliber. ONCE our orders were taken, food arrived hurredly, with almost no time between order and salad, or salad and entree, all poorly timed.
Food was good, though not spectacular. Rolls/bread were cold, inexcusable for a restaurant like this. Salads were OK. My duck was quite good though it looked as if it had been thrown on the plate. The best course was probably dessert. Overall, a disappointing experience for $200 for two before tip. On departure, the hostess was a breath of fresh air.

When you go to Boston and want a fine meal there is no other choice! The cheese cart, pasta, service, etc... It's all top notch. The staff is fully invested in your experience and is excited to be a part of it. Go get your lobstah and Mike's pastry, but for a night to remember make your reservations here...Did I mention the Cheese Cart?

We went with the tasting menu. The food was very good with very creative pairings.
Felt the overall service was not up to par with a top-end restaurant. Our server was very nice but not too attentive and we felt as though we were up-sold by adding a dish to the tasting menu that we thought was included. $24 for 3 pieces of gnocchi is excessive.
The food was great but for the same (or lower)price no where near L’espalier

The food and wine was really phenomenal. Our lead server was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate. There wasn't any food curation at all for several courses as the restaurant got busier, which isn't what I'd expect from a restaurant like this. Also toward the end of the tasting menu, the service fell apart a bit (e.g., food dropped, but no wine from the pairing yet, had to ask for the check after waiting a long period of time with no beverage or offer of one). Would go back because the food and wine was just that good, but service--while friendly and eager--was definitely off.

As always, the food is incredibly creative, eye appealing, and contains the most heavenly cominstions of flavors and textures. The choices take eating to another level. Besides being the best food in Boston, the staff make the experience truely remarkable. Their effort to help you overcome any food challenges results in alternatives you didn’t know existed. No. 9 Park is a “ya’ll come” dining experiece- not just supper.
