Pristine ingredients and refined technique are the basis for the seasonally inspired menus for lunch and dinner.

Menton Ratings and Reviews
We were there this past Sat. for our 31st wedding anniversary. Actually flew into Boston in large part to celebrate at Menton. Absolutely no disappointments. They were aware of our occasion and sat us at a nice quiet table where we enjoyed an absolutely wonderful evening. Jonathan and Simon were gracious and attentive as was the entire staff. The food was just excellent as was the wine.
We enjoyed the tour of the kitchen and meeting sous chef and other staff members.
We plan to make it a point to visit again, and again and again.
I booked the restaurant due to the reputation of the best restaurant in Boston. It happened to be mothers' day, so the menu selection was only two.
We had five course plus cheese plate before the dessert.
The portion was rather small, but it made us fully enjoy the entire course.
We loved everything about this place! The service was excellent but not obtrusive. We took our waiters recommendation and had the best octopus we have ever tasted. Ditto for my husbands quails. Even the bread and butter were exceptional.. The wine list was large and top notch as well. Portions were not huge but made up for it in flavor. We would love to return.
Another wonderful Barbara Lynch restaurant. My son and I celebrated an early Mother's Day with the chefs tasting menu. Each course was a work of art. The butter soup was unbelievable. Can't say enough about what a special place this is. Service was outstanding as well.
While we were the only group in the dining room, the food, while plated almost perfectly (but not quite) lacked flavor—literally had no flavor whatsoever. The china was quite worn, maybe from catering. Service sterile and slow. This is not a 5 star establishment by any means; makes me rethink choosing Relais & Chateaux. The accreditations do not match the locale. We won't be back nor recommend. A very disappointing Boston dining experience.
Splurged on the tasting menu for an anniversary dinner, which turned into an engagement dinner between the last entree and the dessert! The food was incredible -- creative tastes, textures, and presentation. They were very willing to adapt the tasting menu to some dietary preferences, and even the palate cleansers were amazing! The staff were wonderfully attentive, accommodating, and knowledgeable (without being annoying or pretentious), and they eagerly conspired with my new fiancee when he wanted to pop the question but had to move the table out of the way first. A memorable night all around. Thank you, Menton!
A fantastic foodie experience. Worth the trip from anywhere. Very attentive waitstaff. We had two out of 6 diners with food allergies/sensitivities and the kitchen was able to accommodate beautifully. The Chef's menu with the wine pairing is not to be missed.
If Barbara Lynch would take time from the promotion of her recently published memoir to critically assess and inspect her flagship, I can't imagine she'd be pleased with what she'd find. It's a classic example of "celebrity" chef gone absent .....
The food was OK. But is "OK" okay at this price point? True it was lunch and the menu was pared down. But many of the choices are tired old warhorses from the restaurant's 8 +/- year run --- great perhaps when conceived and originally executed by Lynch and her A-team; but worn, bland, uninspired and under-executed by today's kitchen crew.
And speaking of worn .... An establishment which prides itself on Relais & Chateau recognition, and which Boston food-scene cheerleaders vaunt as a Michelin-star level restaurant, should do better than present food on dishwasher worn, marred and chipped china in a room furnished with beaten up chairs and marked-up walls/columns. Linens are cheap; not a flower to be seen on a table. These are the signs of a "fine dining" restaurant in decline, not an aspirant to Michelin-star recognition. Our wine was served in beautiful Zalto stemware, a detail that more restaurants with ambitious wine programs (Menton's wine list is carefully curated) should adopt.
Service was professional if somewhat clumsy at times. As with the room's furnishings, china and flatware, however, server uniforms were worn, soiled and ill-fitting --- not to mention out of style.
It's springtime in Boston. Lynch would do well to freshen up her pride and joy -- both what's coming out of the kitchen and the room in which it's served. For these $$$, you'd do better given the current state of affairs to hop a train to NYC where a myriad of true fine dining choices can provide real value and a memorable experience.
Great Meal. The 8 course prefix was a work of art! The staff was so attentive and warm. I wasn't sure what to expect when other reviewers left comments that the staff was cold and aloof- our experience was quite the opposite. They gave us recommendations on where else to eat for our next trip to Boston. After dinner the GM gave us a tour of the kitchen and helped escort us down to Drink. Great experience and look forward to coming back to Menton and trying more places in the Barabara Lynch family of restaurants. Thank you for a memorable evening!
Menton lived up to its reputation and beyond. We had the Chef-table for the evening and it was a delight to watch the activity and interaction in the kitchen. The presentation was fabulous and the food beyond delicious. The creativity in the kitchen is amazing and the work is done in great harmony and precision.It is a place to be delighted and to impress.
I love food and traveling. Have been been to many top restaurants. This is definitely one of the most overrated restaurant. Food quality is low, service staffs are not well train, noise level is very high. Food is too salty. A $45 small piece of waygu beef doesn't taste authentic. Extremely disappointed.
While the food was absolutely spectacular, it was very over-priced in my opinion. We had been to the restaurant next door (Sportello), which had a very similar menu-this turned out to be because the two restaurants had the same owner and kitchen. It depends on what you're looking for: if it's supposed to be a fancy dinner and you're willing to pay a lot ( the tasting menu for one person with wine is 290$) menton is the place for you, but if you just want authentic Italian food Sportello is probably your better ( and more fairly priced) option.
We where looking forward to a special dinner. The waitstaff was terrific, the menu very interesting. We ordered our food and wine. Got one breadstick per person as an amuse bush.
The appetizers where very good and interesting. We got our main course and we where all disappointed. My pasta dish was cold under cooked pasta and I cold not even taste what the meat was. The portions where small and they served the bread with the main course.
We did not order dessert but went straight for coffee. We got a nice cookie platter and some mini macaroons. Very nice.
Went here to for a birthday dinner and must say it was an amazing experience. Service was impeccable from start to finish. Even got a private tour of the Kitchen. Although everyone was great I have to acknowledge Jonathan. He made the experience even more memorable. I will admit that food was not amazing as I expected but from start to finish we had some really delicious courses from the "chefs whim". I will however return to try a la carte items. Cocktails are a must and wine list is fantastic. Overall a wonderful experience a must try for anyone who can appreciate dining at its finest!
We went to Menton during Dine Out Boston thinking they were participating in it for dinner. When our server informed us that it was only doing Dine Out Boston for lunch, we decided to try the Chef's choice 6-course dinner. I liked the idea of being surprised and also of trying something we might not have ordered from the menu otherwise. For instance, I'm not a big fan of beets, but the doppio ravioli was quite good. We also chose to have our dishes be different so we can sample each other's food. The food was delicious, especially the butter soup. There's a reason that's their signature dish. The portions are very small, but I left feeling like I couldn't eat another bite of food. In addition to the six courses, an amuse-bouche, mini croissant and butter, bread and dessert plate that included mini macarons were also served, on the house.
The service is outstanding, just read the other reviews. My husband found an eye lash on his food and requested that it be replated. When his plate was ready, the chef also sent me an extra dish, the bigoli, so that I didn't have to just watch my husband eat. They also comped my cocktail. The pace of the meal was also great - I didn't feel like I was waiting too long for each dish and certainly did not feel rushed. Another thing I'd like to mention is that my glass of water was never empty. It seems simple enough, but often doesn't happen at other restaurants.
Overall, an amazing experience. We are not used to spend this kind of money on a single meal, but Menton actually made us feel like it was worth it.
It was just ok. I'll have to admit there were 2 courses that were very flavorful/beautiful, but out of the 10 we got total (separately), it was just ok. They could've tended to our tables a bit more, cleaned off the top of our tables some more. I am all about diversity, but it was EXTREMELY difficult to hear the composition of our plates with some of the servers thick accents. I really believe that hurts the dining experience, especially when you're guessing what you're having and starting off with confusion. I also wished they could cater to our diets better like they said they would. Granted, they did accommodate a pescatarian diet, but my wife really didn't want breads in the dishes. and I guess 2/5 they did. Oh well, I know we're at the whim of the chef, but we were hopeful when they said they could.
Went there for lunch. The starter salad was less than expected--the greens were an excellent mixture however there was an unmistakable paucity of flavor in the Parmesan truffle--as a matter of fact, I did not detect any truffle flavor and the meager pieces of crisped Parmesan should have been increased. The flavoring of the salad was simply too subdued & uninspired. For my main course, the ribeye beef was outstanding in flavor and cooked to perfection at my requested medium rare!!! However, the portion was one tiny slice of beef no more than 2"X 1" & that was a disappointment!!! Really, at least 2-3 slices would have been nice! The accompanying vegetable (salsify) was delicious but again the attempt to be creative should have been balanced with a few more items on the plate! Because the serving sizes were so small, we ordered a dessert: the chocolate espresso tart. Again, I was underwhelmed--I can't explain why but it just was not an exciting flavoring. I will say the bread served with the food was delicious! And, service was exemplary overall. I'm glad I went, but not sure if I would return.
