Menton Ratings and Reviews

The tasting menu was amazing: course after course of fascinating flavors and textures. The fois gras hot dog with blueberry/walnut ketchup and popcorn mustard, the lamb, clams 3 ways and deconstructed bouillabaisse were just some of the highlights. All the dessert courses were superb. The service was perfect - attentive without being invasive. Jonathan was a great captain and made sure we had everything we needed. Dale was awesome and explained all the dishes perfectly. He was very personable and fun (great job!). The chef came out with the black truffle and was very personable as well. I love this type of amazing food experience. I certainly hope to go back again!

We had a fabulous tasting meal here with an incredible wine pairing. Truly spectacular. The only reason I'm not giving the restaurant a perfect score is because we were seated more than 30 minutes late and did not place our orders until almost an hour passed the reservation time. Though to their credit they comped out glasses of wine we had while waiting at the bar.

This was the second Barbara Lynch restaurant we've been to. Not much we can add to other outstanding reviews, but I'd like to commend the young man (22!) who was acting as Captain and Somm. The restaurant was not crowded and I always like to chat with the staff. We talked about what was required to survive in the high-end restaurant business today, and one of the things was training. This "kid" was from Columbia, and had been aiming for a restaurant career since he was about 12 years old. It was clear from the get-go that Ms. Lynch put a high emphasis on staff training, remarkably so, and he described the training program at Menton, which was both deep and broad. He was a bit surprised that we knew where the name of the restaurant came from, and expanded on our knowledge with a touch of history. We talked about the deplorable trend toward "lively" atmospheres, even in high end places, with interior design that made it almost impossible to have a conversation due to the high decibel background noise.
Perhaps this didn't matter because the clientele had nothing substantive to say.
The menu was limited, but the execution was superb. Alas, my days of drinking a bottle of wine for lunch are over, but the BTG selection was fine, and appropriate to the meals.

My expectations for dinner at Menton were high, and they were exceeded. From the moment we walked in to celebrate our anniversary, we were treated as special guests. A complimentary glass of Paul Roget champagne started an incredible tasting menu experience. Service was superb, wines excellent. Nothing could have been better. The highest of the high end.

This is where you go if someone else is paying the bill. The food is ridiculously expensive or maybe it's just that the servings are ridiculously small. Be warned, when the entree is described as "scallop with. . ." they do mean ONE scallop, and not even a big one.

The food at Menton is superb. That said, you should expect modest portions, in the French minimalist manner, and expensive prices.
Unfortunately, the ambience does not match the quality of the food. The dining areas are stylistically cold. The service was generally excellent, but the pacing of the meal was erratic. And, on the Saturday evening we ate there, there were a number of small children, who were somewhat disruptive.
So we would certainly recommend Menton for the quality of the food, but not necessarily for the overall dining experience.

It was our engagement dinner celebration. We chose the tasting menu with the wine pairing. We got complimentary drinks and food and they really made it a special occasion to be remembered. The service was flawless and everyone was great. We had a nice window seat and the food was rich and delicious. The frois grois hot dog was amazing. Thanks again for making it even more of a special day.

I found Menton through the Popular tab here on Open Table. I added a note to the reservation that it was our 15th anniversary. I was hoping it would be a great new find, and I wasn't disappointed. The food was amazing. The halibut was the best fish dish I've ever had. We were given a pour of champagne at the beginning of the meal for our anniversary, and we were later brought out a plate of small bite desserts with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. From the food to the service to the wine to the special treatment they showed us, Menton helped make our day even more special. I highly recommend it as a special occasion splurge, or even just a nice night out.

Great Experience. The food was beyond, but the experience was made most special by the team of great professionals serving us. Very knowledgeable and polished. The chef appreciated his customers by saying hi and offering a tour of a very busy kitchen. The "butter" soup is a must. We highly recommend the tasting menu.

We had the 6-course tasting menu. The food is exceptional, especially the fois gras, it was cooked perfectly.
The service was exceptional. Drinks were filled all the time. The head waiter was very friendly and professional. The food were delivered in a dramatic manner, like a show.
Ambience is quiet.

I took my partner here to celebrate his birthday, and I can say we were not disappointed. Last year, I had taken him to No. 9 Park, where my partner is now the executive pastry chef. Chef Barbara amazed us again, the service and food were exceptional, there were no complaints at all. My partner and I can easily say this was one of the best meals we have ever experienced. My partner and I will definitely come back to share another special occasion at Menton.

The dinner was outstanding in every respect. We did the a la carte menu which was varied so that there were items that would appeal to any taste. The service was prompt without being rushed and our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful without being pushy.

Very good food with delightful tastes. Had the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing. Three and a half hours of enjoyment. Very expensive but worth it for a special treat. Minimal decor; the attention is on the wine and food.
Five start dining all around
From the sophisticated, understated decor to the staff, dining at Menton is as near to perfect as it can get (and VERY pricey). For that special occasion, it is well worth it. The experience is as much of a feast for the eyes as it is for the pallette. The team members work well together and offer a perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness. The flavors are ones that you wouldn't think of putting together, and they work.
We had the complete honor of dining at Menton Saturday evening.
We relished our gluten free 6 course tasting menu. Each course was exquisite and served with the perfect wine pairing.
The staff was professional and informative while warmly pampering us.
We will be back.
Thank you Menton!
We expected more from this Relais & Chateaux restaurant. Granted, having lunch at a fine restaurant is a bit of a risk. However, this was really disappointing for the price. Food presentation was uninspired and many dishes were oversalted. Can you imagine not finishing crab salad? Two of us couldn't, because it was just too salty. One of the dishes was supposed to have bottarga in it - needed a magnifying glass to find it.
On the positive side, the service was impeccable and gracious & the cocktails superb. probably not enough to get me back when there are so many amazing restaurants in Boston.
The food was a delicious combination of favors and textures. The portions are small, but, as recommended by our very good waiter, we each ordered three things, which was ample. The ambiance is very pleasant and fairly quiet, although the noise level would obviously increase with a fuller restaurant. It is not inexpensive, but well worth it.
Took colleagues there for dinner. Great food - very creative and very delicious. The service was also fabulous. I chose Menton because of its great reputation for outstanding food, and it totally lived up to the reputation. If you want a great meal in Boston, Menton is the place to go!
Delicious food, top service and wine list
We were thrilled with our recent dining experience at Menton's. The buttery seafood soup and oysters to start off with were amazing, and my duck dish main course was perhaps the best I have ever savored. In between were lots of delectable items, although portions were small. Wines we selected were as smooth as silk, as was the service. Highly recommended overall.
Spectacular service, great food, great cocktails.
We had a great experience. It felt like the night was custom-tailored for us. Our waiter, Danny, was incredible. He was completely tuned into who we were personally and made recommendations accordingly. He elevated the experience to another level- he was like another guest at our table and we loved having him. That being said, the vibe was great. The food was super tasty and interesting. The pineapple sorbet desert could be the best desert I've ever had, and the cocktails were epic. Definitely a go-to for a special celebration.
