We have made a tradition of spending the night in Boston prior to an early morning flight out of Logan for vacation. Part of that tradition is having dinner at No.9 Park. It has never disappointed.

The appetizers, wine, dessert, ambiance and service were superb. However, all three of our main dishes were poor: The halibut was overcooked; the bavette tough. Overall, dinner was a disappointment.

During Dine Out Boston, we made the first visit to this lovely restaurant. We did not have any exceptional dish unfortunately. Cold poached egg was much more like a runny egg that is served with ramen, although Japanese Ramen restaurants serve a better version. The service was quick and attentive. We may come back here for some occasion.

No. 9 Park is still one of the most extraordinary restaurants in Boston. The setting is unparalleled, especially the view through front picture windows, watching the twilight across the Common and then the lights of the city sparkle.

Our recent visit was for Restaurant Week, and No. 9 did itself proud offering a representative menu for the occasion. The service, the wine, the plating and the food itself impeccable.

always perfect for the most special occasions in life. Thank you to the talented chef(s), staff and Ms Lynch!

Friendly,attentive, well informed staff. Most of them can be playful and amusing if your group is receptive, or just efficient and pleasant if you’re a bunch of stuffed shirts. Every dish is perfection and beautifully presented. No.9 Park deserves 5+ stars in every category as long as you ignore what it costs. And you Should ignore the high price for an exquisite evening. You may go there rarely, but to make a special occasion into a memorable one, there is no better restaurant in Boston, even after paying the eye-popping bill.

Overall an overpriced and unsatisfactory experience. he staff is cordial but does not make you feel welcome. I dropped off my party and drove away to park the car. My receptionist will not seat her until I returned. The food was not at the level we expected from a fine dining experience and was over priced. This is our second visit after a long time and we decided to try it again total failure. We would not return.

I have wanted to go to this restaurant for as long as I can remember, but unfortunately, it was a disappointment.
I did the chef's tasting menu which is usually always the best option! But a 125 for 6 courses and did not feel worth the money at all. Out 6 there were only 2 that we can say we really liked. The rest were boring, safe, and just OK. Nothing tasted bad at all, just nothing we would care to eat again.
To make matters worse we were still hungry at the end. We are not novices at gourmet food and plating sizes but typically after a 6 course I leave feeling content if not stuffed!
I also ordered the daiquiri (which I do whenever there is one on the menu) but I do have to say this was the worst one I have ever experienced.
Luckily, the service was phenomenal - we loved our waiter (and back waiters).

After being seated, waiters were quick to take order without asking if we would like a beverage. Lighting very dim and had a difficult time reading menu/check. Had to ask for an aperitif (waiter again asking or food order including dessert). Foie gras excellent. Pasta entrée tasted weird. Dessert (orange tart) - small but good. Overall, felt rushed even though restaurant not full. Had high expectations but was totally dismayed. Will not go back.

It is a great restaurant, service is great and food is excellent and innovative. However is very expensive, expect to spend $100 per person.

The ambiance is somewhat formal and quiet, great for a work dinner.

The desserts are awesome, so save some space for that.

This is a fantastic restaurant with some of the best food I've had in a very long time. My husband and I were visiting Boston and decided to have a special evening dinner at No. 9. We choose to do the tasting menu, and it was well worth the cost. That said, the luxury wine pairing was underserved and overpriced. The wines were perfectly paired with each course, and they were probably some of the best wines I have ever had the privilege of tasting. BUT, it was at best a two once pour for each of the wines. We complained halfway through the tasting and said that had we known they were going to pour such a small glass, then we would have opted for a bottle of wine (at probably half the price). They appropriately addressed our grievance, and we left full and happy. I would definitely recommend No. 9, because the food and service are outstanding. But I strongly recommend not going for the luxury wine pairing.

Well it is expensive but it was an amazing experience. We were there for our anniversary and I guess I told them that because they welcomed us with happy anniversary and our dessert had happy anniversary on it. We were reluctant to get the tasting menu as I’m a vegetarian and my husband is not so adventurous, but they tailored the meal to our specifications and it was amazing. Every course was a burst of flavor. Definitely the way to go. We also got the wine pairing which was very well chosen. Not for a casual night out but perfect for a special occasion

Dined with my brothers at No. 9 Park and very much enjoyed the evening. Our reserved table was ready early; service was impeccable; food was delicious (gnocci, oysters, foie gras, halibut, bavette, duck and pork chop were divine!); ambiance was lovely. I also appreciated the choices of 3 and 5 ounce pours of rarer wines. I tried a red from Lebanon and it was delicious. Our servers were very knowledgeable about not only the food menu but also the wine and drink choices, and were attentive without becoming bothersome. When I asked whether a cocktail would be too sweet, our waitress offered to have the bartender adjust the ingredients to my drier liking and the result was awesome. My only one constructive comment is that it did take longer than usual to receive our first round of drinks, but we were enjoying the evening, so it was not a significant issue. Even the valet was simple. Pulled right up and the valet came right over and was very polite.

In sum, an evening at No. Park is an experience to be savored. I'd dine there every week if my waistline could afford it.
