    If you want a better French restaurant, try Aquitaine. It a level better than park 9. Overall, a good restaurant but nothing worth the prices that are charged. To begin with, a restaurant of the kind that they positon and price themselves around would always have amuse bouche to start the dinner. They brought a piece of bread that wasn’t even warm. 7 out of 9 dishes that we tried were not very interesting flavor wise. Prune stuffed gnocchi for example - the sauce was of good quality but the gnocchi were blunt. The wine tasting was especially disappointing. 3 out of 6 pairing were good, the rest were a miss. Also, If we knew that they would be doing less than 50 ml per glass for wine pairing costing 95$ we would have just ordered from the menu and got a better experience. Overall, I wouldn’t come back and definitely wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. There are better restaurant in Boston.

    Celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and they went out of their way to make us and the evening special. Great staff, venue, and food! My wife is also pregnant and they went out of their way to accommodate our concern over raw/undercooked foods while still maintaining a flavorful meal she could enjoy.

    Very accommodating and eager to please. It was dark enough that it hurt my eyes, so we asked for light. A little lamp was brought to our table! The food was amazing, and I asked to keep a little of each to go, and they saved all my leftovers for me. It was so fun! But wasn’t just a meal, but an experience.

    No. 9 Park was very accommodating of the celiac allergy in our party. Each member of the staff appeared trained, and were thoughtful in specifying each item brought to the table as GF or not. We split the Burrata App which they took the time to prepare on separate plates. The Fois mid-course was a generous portion with Figs, stuffed Cherries, and toast points which they substituted for toasted rounds of their gluten free roles. For mains we had the Salmon and the Duet of Duck which were both expertly prepared with huge flavor and crispy skin. Fiddle head ferns we’re a pleasant surprise a veg with the duck. Service and ambiance were both excellent!

    Good and service were outstanding. Some of the best food I’ve ever had. The air conditioning could’ve been a bit cooler and there was an abundance of flies. That still didn’t take away from some of the best dishes and wine pairings I’ve ever had.

    Second visit in a month. We haven't been to No. 9 Park in years and forgot how wonderful the food and serve is. We first came for a birthday celebration and was treated royally. We had the tasting menu which was amazing. Loved it so much that at the last minute decided to come back with my guy friends. We sat at the bar and had another amazing dinner. Service and food was just as good without a white table cloth and candle. My only complaint was the pairing of the wines with the tasting menu. They were good matches but the quality could have been a few steps ups. Both waiters were incredible! I found free parking twice on the street which was so easy. I felt like it was visiting an old friend.

    Everything was impeccable. Attentive, hospitable, and professional. Food was expertly prepared. Wait time for each course was good. The only glitch was my dish: 'duet of duck' Although the breasts were perfectly medium rare, the leg-thigh portion came with bone, and was difficult to eat. When I left it on my plate, the management was enlightened that I suggested that the legs be done in a 'confit' so it was more easy to consume. Management generously took the duck dish off the tab. A Well run establishment attuned to the needs of the discriminating diner. J Tsang

    An enjoyable evening overall. Service a bit slow, and price always puts pressure on this restaurant — it has to be ‘perfect’ for one to feel good about the value. Not a ‘wow,’ but fine.

    A nice dinner at No 9. The service is still not fine dining yet. Food presentation was creative but not sophisticated. I wish that the chef should be more interactive to the guests. A bit of a long shot to meet NYC or international Michelin award league.

    It was our 50th wedding anniversary and we were not treated special. Vibe was cold , strictly professional. Very disappointing. Food was good but not great. Very expensive.

We are honored that you chose to celebrate your 50th anniversary with us, and our staff was really excited to be a part of your special day. I'm disappointed to hear that you felt the celebration was inadequate, as we had really enjoyed being a part of this special anniversary. Thank you so much for your feedback. We will take it to heart for the improvement of our experience. Diego Fiori General Manager

    Service and food were great. We had a reservation and it was disappointing to get sat at the worst table in the whole restaurant - right in front of kitchen, with staff standing behind us. There were at least two other tables available the whole time we were there. We are locals and this was our first time but based on this experience doubt we will be back.
