Not Worth the Time or Money The first time that I ate at this restaurant--over three years ago--it was amazing: the food was incredible and the service was excellent. In the past few years, the restaurant has lost top management in both its kitchen and...More

I think they are trying hard and it is good in some ways but not in others. They do beautiful complimentary appetisers , bread and tiny desserts. The menu needs sorting. The degustation looks amazing but it would be nice to sort the other menu...More

Maybe it was an "off" night but I do not agree with all of the rave reviews. We had two entrees and two appetizers and three were average or just "ok". Potato tortelloni with quail was flavorless and greasy. The duck entree was cooked perfect...More

Boston's food scene is certainly world class, and once you have enjoyed your fresh lobster as a visitor, one looks deeper into what Boston's chefs have "cooked up". Barbara Lynch's Menton is one of those wonderful experiences that make you want to go back again...More

When the menu includes something called the "Chef's Whim," pay attention and go with her whim. I've dined here twice and they have certainly been among the most memorable meals of my life. Everything is excellent: the food, the service, the ambiance. If you go...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.
