Went there during Dine Out Boston, both foie gras dishes were really good. but there're still a lot of problems with other dishes. the rim of the bowls are too high, makes it really awkward when using knife and fork. and also the Pomegranate seeds are really annoying, should've taken out before cooking/serving. Saw the rating of the restaurant is pretty high, probably just don't want to make an effort for the cheaper menus.
Might try going again later to see if it's still that bad.

Service is impeccable. There is more than an ample supply of servers to assist & serve you. Your water glass will never be empty. Food is good but not what I would call great. Portions tend to be small. I had swordfish which weighed about 5oz. My wife had duck which was a good size portion. The menu and wine list are expensive.

Food was great but service was spotty. We waited longer than expected between courses. AND the waiter failed to inform us of the $60 pp supplemental charge for caviar when he promoted it after he had taken our menus.

We decided to do this No. 9 Park for Dine Out Boston. It was overall fantastic! They accommodate us with so much adjustments to our dietary restrictions and well respected of our food allergies. From check in to walk out of the place, we left so satisfied with our experience and to our surprise, we were still stuffed all night long! I definitely would recommend this spot to anyone who wants something that is excellent fine dining experience.

Everything was outstanding. They knew all about us before we walked through the door. First dining experience and I felt like I was coming home. Looking forward to returning.

Absolutely love the restaurant and the cuisine, presentation and service. Usually we reserve for very special occasion. Took a risk with the DineOut Boston and the upgrade to a 5-course tasting menu. Just wish the menu and restaurant were fully transparent on “supplement” charges.
Nevertheless look forward to our next return but will go with eyes wide open re: pricing

Lovely little townhouse resturant with great ambience with superb service. Unfortunately we went during Restaurant Week and choose to eat the prefix 3 course dinner meal that was offered. I elected to upgrade the appetizer to a duck pate for $14.00 more, which was not at all worth it nor was it any good!!! It was a a dark piece of spongy bread that was soaked in some sort of grease, no not butter. A little piece of dark liver was on the top of this greasy dark piece of bread. However, the salmon that was office for the main course was poached and tasteless, with raw purple lettuce surrounding the salmon. The dessert was lacking also, fried donut with glaze, with a dine size Dollop ice cream. Please don’t go for Resturant week, the $110.00 for 2 without drinks is not expensive. However I would have preferred to try out a Real speciality meal that they are know for. Beware, You get what you pay for!!

We ordered the tasting menu and it was amazing! The servers were helpful and knowlegable. The only detractor was that it took a long time between courses.

The swordfish and duck were excellent. Wine list is extremely expensive. The waiter was obsequious and annoying. Other servers were fine. Portions were artistic but small. I’m glad I finally came here to dine but it was not worth $750 for dinner for 4.

I have dined at No9 Park many times and was looking forward to my late February visit. Service was very good as it usually is, but the food was not up to par at all. The new duck dish was horrible (I saw several plates from neighboring tables go back half-eaten as well!) and all I got when I mentioned it to the person who cleared the table was a non-descriptive 'I'll tell the kitchen'. The pasta dish my wife had was mediocre at best. Sure, the Gnocchi were as good as always, but overall the food was just unacceptable and not remotely worth the substantive price tag. The duck dish was so bad that I sent a note to the restaurant a few days later ... and to date they didn't even bother responding at all. Between the lack of response in the dining room when a customer complains about food and the complete lack of follow-up response with an online inquiry tells me they really don't care at all, not even remotely. Won't be coming back any time soon, nor set up large business dinners like we used to. Well give them some time to get back on their feet and I hope they do ... because it would be good to have No9 Park back in Boston ... right now they are somewhere else …

Dinner was good, but not outstanding for us. The food was tasty, everything was cooked well, and they accommodated an allergy which is always appreciated. Having said that, the flow of the service seemed off and we had over 5 different individuals serve us and it felt a bit impersonal. Otherwise, I would recommend No 9 Park to anyone who is looking for a traditional dining experience!

Overall experience was so so it could be my wife and I are not “experienced foodies”so our palates couldn’t appreciate the intricate preperation. Our waiter James was great and did take time to explain dishes to us. I would have expected more for almost $400 but I don’t blame the restetaunt . It was somewhat expected . we are glad we tried no 9 park .the following night we did Grill 23 since we had eaten there before we did get what we expected

The restaurant was cold. I asked three servers to raise the heat in the front dining room but the heater next to the old, compromised windows didn’t work. One server stated that they we’re thankful when a patron finally asks to turn the heat up, as they are frequently cold, as well. I had to eat my dinner with my coat on.
The constant opening of the heavy kitchen door on rollers across the floor felt like I was eating an expensive meal in a subway station. After moving into the bar room for dessert in the hopes of finishing the meal in a warmer room, the smell of sewer (from outside? the bathrooms? still don’t know) lingered in the air, negating much of the pleasure from the excellent chocolate soufflé.
The staff was wonderful, food was of course delicious, but I won’t be going back or recommending No.9 Park to others.
