The Fort Point neighborhood’s urban cityscape, with its blend of historic brick buildings and sleek design statements, is the perfect setting for Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch's modern interpretation of fine dining.

With beautifully executed cuisine, an unparalleled wine program, warm hospitality, and a glamorous setting, Menton seeks to excite, inspire, and transport guests. Pristine ingredients and refined technique are the basis for seasonally inspired menus. A six-seat bar, with additional seating for ten at tables along a banquette, features expertly crafted cocktails and beers from both near and far. A carefully curated wine list highlights small grower champagnes and rare vintages from lesser-known vineyards.

In addition to the dining room and bar, Menton boasts two private event spaces perfect for gathering with colleagues, friends, or family.

    Went to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The service was excellent and it is indeed a good place to celebrate your special occasions. The food was average as we tried the 4 course menu. But definitely it was a different dining experience all together. Would recommend this place for the experience.

    We were not seated right away and had to wait for 15 min despite the table was ready. We took chef’s menu. it was good overall but the lamb dish was inedible - the dish was not prepped properly, was completely uncooked and very plain - basically raw piece of lamb with tons of fat.

    On a trip from Calgary to celebrate my girlfriends birthday, Menton lived up to the hype from abroad. From the intimate table, amazing server, and incredible timing of service, to the incredible flavors, presentation and sourcing of product offered in the chef’s tasting menu. One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had!

The wine pairings were perfect and everyone was very knowledgeable about each dish. This restaurant is a must if you want to have the best meal of your life.

    I have dined at Menton and view it as a special place. However my meal with my dinner partner felt rushed. We ordered the tasting menus with wine parings. We encourage the servers to slow it down a notch. The food - each course - was not warm. I was supremely disappointed.

    Very mediocre food. We were hoping for a Michelin like experience and many of the sauces just didn’t work with the dish flavor. Also we all wondered why spaghetti course was thrown in the middle of other courses. Progression was odd. Service was very good but wouldn’t return because food was so underwhelming

    We were served “spaghetti alla chitarra”. In Abruzzo, Italy the traditional spaghetti alla chitarra is usually prepared with a hearty ragù sauce. The dish we received? A watery sauce that was cloyingly acidic and quite literally vinegary, combined with corn, and parmesan cheese that was topped with stale crushed popcorn and mint. As you can imagine, (due in part to taste and texture) that it was practically inedible. Many if not all of the dishes served on the chefs tasting menu were not palatable in comparison to their alluring descriptions. If you’re looking for a Michelin eating experience, I wouldn’t recommend. The chef does not execute an understanding of food pairings and their importance. We expected much more from a Barbara Lynch restaurant, whom is regarded as one of the world's leading chefs and restaurateurs.

    If you’re looking for a Michelin star like experience, there are better options in Boston. The Prix-Fixe menu is better than the Chef’s Tasting menu (which we had this time). The ambiance is great, the service is good, but the food was a bit underwhelming.

    For the price, the food was drastically underwhelming. Flavors were not what I would expect for a restaurant with such accolade. Michelin worthy? Not even close. Exception was A5 Wagyu. Highlight of the evening. Too much bread.

    Sad. We have not been to Menton since before the pandemic- loved the thoughtfulness of the carefully prepared food and liked it even better when an ala carte menu allowed you to eat only as much as you wanted rather than leaving as “guests farcies.” We returned last night to find a choice betw a prix fixe v tasting menu and chose mostly the prix fixe to control the amount of food. Everything went swimmingly until the main courses arrived. My husband substituted in the lamb which turned out to be two oddly shaped poorly trimmed lambchops which were served raw not rare except for a browned exterior ( and he loves rare meat) with a dull steak knife. He fought with the gristly stringy raw meat in an embarrassing manner. I tried to cut it too- impossible- when we left we saw another patron in battle with his raw lambchops as well. I ordered the turbot which seemed to have been poached in classic style in a mix of butter and perhaps duck or goose fat. However, parts were overcooked and parts not quite cooked as if a not fully thawed piece of fish had been prepared so cooking was variable. It was served with potatoes dauphine which tasted of uncooked flour. For dessert we ordered peach tart which like most of the dinner was deconstruit. The peach slices were unpeeled, sliced thinly, perhaps dehydrated and served with a most unappealing pastry that was neither flaky nor crisp but a bit soggy and some indeterminate gluey ice cream as well as a lot of cake crumbs for decor. It looked pretty but was unpleasant and just sweet. I stared at mine thinking this was the end of deconstructed food. And I believe the staff knew. With every initial course at least 2 servers asked how we liked the food. With the main courses and dessert no one asked. When u r paying the price of a flight to Paris for dinner I think u have a right to perfection. Perhaps Barbara Lynch who is wonderful should take another look at what is going on in this kitchen

    Definitely once visiting for the ambience, service, the drinks and the Barbara Lynch name. We got a vegetarian chef's tasting menu. The courses were well thought out and some ingredients very exquisite. Only two critiques are 1) corn and cucumber were a part of multiple courses 2) two of the courses were extremely buttery

    The cost and experience were average. The fish tasted fishy and the steak was very tough. I asked for the meat to be cooked med rare but what I got was rare. I have been to many excellent restaurants across the world and this will not be somewhere I recommend or return. Disappointed DLU.
