    Epic meal. Great service. Having just finished Barbara Lynch’s book and having dined often at Butcher Shop, B&G, and once at Menton, I was happy to add #9 Park to the list.

    French national it was nice to listen to french music during the dinner. Food unfortunately is not refined enough for a pretending gastronomic restaurant. Other options serve similar food in Boston without the fuss. Missed attention to details, silverware, veggies, bread selection, finesse in meet or cheese meals. Dessert, had a tarte tatin nice presentation but overall much too sweet unfortunately. Do not deserve the hype

    Did the tasting menu with Premium Wine pairing. Good and service excellent. Wine pairing was 1-2 ounces per taste. Not worth the additional 135.

    No. 9 ParkResponded 7 days agoHello Bachi! Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to learn that you felt our service and plates were up to standard! When pouring wine for a 6 or 7-course tasting, we limit our pours to 2oz to avoid overserving our guests, but will happily offer more if a guest requests more, responsibly. I look forward to hosting you again. When you join us next, please message us directly at mfranks@no9park. Cheers!

The old lockobers and The oak room held the standard, now #9 is right Thank you for a great and amazing evening.

    The Chef’ tasting menu was spectacular. The win pairings definitely enhanced the meal. It was interesting to try wines from different regions of Europe. The prune gnocchi and the winter squash pavlova with the dessert wine were especially memorable. Do not miss the chance to dine here.

    The food at No 9 Park has always been outstanding, and it seems to me that the menu is only getting more creative and delicious. We had the tasting menu with a few different options, and loved every dish -- but especially the scallops, which were nearly perfect other than being a tiny bit oversalted (but the rest of the dish was just right, so it balanced out). The wine tasting is a bit on the pricey end but we enjoyed the variety (and the presentation) and thought that the wines were mostly paired very well with the dishes. The supplements are mostly not worth the extra charges (the $80 wagyu supplement replaced a perfectly fine venison with about 2 ounces of wagyu, prepared find but nothing to write home about). Service is attentive but not overbearing. A great option for a special night out!

    The ambiance and service is amazing. We got the Chefs tasting with wine pairing. The wine was phenomenal but for me the food was very disappointing. The flavors didn’t mesh well and some of the food was over salted and unpalatable. It was absolutely not worth the price in my opinion.

    Food was delicious. Service was erratic and disjointed. It seemed like we did not have a point person and the sommelier was pinch hitting to balance the wait staff being overwhelmed. It was appreciated so we didn’t get frustrated but just didn’t have the personal touch and follow through that we would expect. Any night can be different so it is def worth trying again!

    As always the food was delicious with wonderful taste and interest. The service staff was extremely distracted and uneven. Our server was having trouble remembering our order and our preferences. Thus he needed several reminders. Then the service staff changed mid-meal and it began to improve. However, the barking dog in the restaurant which neither the staff or owner seemed to address ruined the loveliness experienced in previous visits. Bottom line, the kitchen delivered their usual high quality but the front of the house was not up to the challenge and stumbled all the way to the bill presentation. Time to broaden the special occasion choices as fine dining is more than excellent food in a carnival atmosphere.

    We did the tasting menu with wine pairing, although 3 of the 7 dishes were fabulous the others didn’t hit the mark for us. There was an optional gnocchi dish that they said has been on the menu for years so we tried it, unfortunately this wasn’t very good. The gnocchi was too think and slightly undercooked. Although the wine pairing was good for the specific meal, it felt a little inconsistent and a little random when you put all the wines together. We both felt it was very expensive for what it was, sadly we left a little unwhelmed.

    No. 9 Park is an extraordinary restaurant with consistently exceptional food. The space is both elegant and comfortable at the same time. There are no bad tables, inclining in the bar room, which is not loud. The bar itself is also a great place to meet a friend to have a nice conversation over a drink. I had not been to No. 9 for a couple years and this week had dinner with a friend from out of town who I hadn't seen for ages. We really wanted an evening that would allow us space to talk. I was very pleased to find the quality of the food/space has not changed. As outstanding as the food and space are, I feel the "magic" of our night was very much enhanced by the reservationists and wait staff who who deftly coordinate and carry off requests and preferences impeccably and unobtrusively, which allowed my guest and me to really cherish the time had together.

    Wifie got tasting menu which she really enjoyed. I started with Seafood sampler. Oysters on point, shrimp big and plump with HOT Horseradish ❤ crab was delectable. Brought me ricotta fritters instead of foieGras, but it was banging, no charge for screw up. Then the foie Gras came out and no disappointment there ❤ nice accomplices with gorganzola cheese. Next was duet of duck. Confied leg on point as were the tiny green beans and beets, but the breast was as tough as the sole of my Rocky boots 😞 No charge there either. Overall 4stars and I'd go back in a minute!

    Went for thanksgiving, service was fairly slow but executed well. Appetizers were good but nothing exceptional, somewhere between elevated bar food and something you’d find at Balthazar lol The entrees were prepared so poorly. Over spiced on one dish to the point where the nutmeg made my sister cough and my dish was insanely overcooked. They offered to remake dishes which was fine but it’s just tough to come back from especially at the price point. They forgot a round of drinks at the end but ultimately took care of the one dish sent back. Would definitely not come back, could taste the butter and fat from the entree in my mouth for the rest of the night. Boston fine dining needs a reinvention

    We hadn't been for several years, since before covid, and some things were as we remembered, like the flawless service, but the kitchen is not what it once was. First course was passable - foie gras was fine, burrata was ok, but most of the plate elements added nothing to the dish. I got a mid-course of farfalle with ragout of pork which tasted like it had been in hot-hold for two days. Soggy, washed out pasta, flavorless meat, no trace of aromatics or seasoning in the dish whatsoever. The portion was extremely small, so I didn't suffer long. Mains were bavette (flank steak) and venison. The meat was, admittedly, cooked as ordered - on the rare side. Plating elements were dull and lifeless, poorly seasoned. My plate had a few clumps of spinach which somebody forgot to rinse - I got a bunch of grit in my teeth. And the amounts of meat were embarrassingly small. The entrees were both over $40. Even with the expensive bottle of Laurent Perrier, I do not appreciate spending $650 for dinner and going home hungry. I made some dinner when I got home. Needless to say, 9 Park has lost it's appeal. Luckily, this town has lots of alternatives.
