My colleague and I visited Menton while we were in town on business.. I loved the asparagus salad and the Bavette steak. Finished with the trio of cheeses. Service was attentive, considering the restaurant was extremely busy.

Both my husband and I, decided to celebrate the birthday of our amazing 2 years old child by having dinner here and without her. (Needless to say, this dinner date happened after her own birthday party with her groupies) We read the reviews on Trip advisor and decided on Menton. From the minute we entered this place with a looming... More

This was our second time here, and somehow it was better than the first. Once again the servers were attentive, but, not intrusive. The food was meticulously prepared and all delicious. We did the tasting menu, and i highly recommend it, a wonderful experience.

We had their 6 course menu. (Chef's random choice). Thought they were very accommodating. Just needed to be more assertive I guess. My wife didn't want bread, she still had some breaded courses. Oh well, not a show stopper, but an experience dampener when you can't indulge in everything. Thought they should've cleaned our tables a bit more. It was... More

My wife and I visited here for the first time. The food was exquisite - French style fine dining. Waghu beef, foie gras, tortellini and the appetiser butter soup were all in outstanding . Best meal I have had in the USA for a long time. Great service. Expensive but worth it.

Ate lunch here during restaurant week. I had the "ribeye" whlch was a noisette of tasteless tough beef. My wife had the pasta, very small portion which was ok as was the desert. The service is spectacular- friendly and relaxed. The room is lovely, gray and understated. We have been meaning to come here since it opened- we finally did... More

A drive into Boston on a blustery March night brought us to elegant Menton for a birthday celebration. Our party of three was made to feel special from the moment the host took our coats and wished me a "happy birthday." We arrived early and were first guided to the modern and cozy bar where we ordered cocktails. We then... More

in short. something was terribly wrong on the kitchen. pre-fixé meal was mistimed and less than average. I recognize taste is completely subjective but what I can also recognize is when no effort is made, especially for the price charged. the front of the house was over working to make up for what was or was not happening in the...

This is a difficult review to write, as we really, really wanted to like Menton. We also, however, had high expectations--expectations that were not met, especially given the price point at which Menton operates. As noted below, the food was subpar and, for many courses, left much to be desired. The service was equally spotty. Amongst our party, the dining... More

Description
Menton, Chef Barbara Lynch's Fort Point fine dining restaurant, is the final concept to complete her Fort Point trifecta and joins neighbors Sportello and Drink. Located in FP3, the AIA award-winning luxury condominium complex, Menton radiates an understated elegance and offers several beautiful spaces to dine including the 60-seat dining room, a 12-seat Chef's Table, and the 45-seat private dining room. The restaurant, a glamorous expression of fine dining, was designed by Cheryl and Jeffrey Katz of C&J Katz and features a subtle palette of grays with touches of silver and black. The cuisine of Menton displays the talent for precision and visual artistry across two seasonal tasting menus and a la carte selections for dinner daily, and a more casual a la carte menu for lunch Monday - Friday.
