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

We dined at Menton to celebrate a wedding anniversary (we've lost count how many years!). Every single aspect of the experience was outstanding, beginning with maitre d' Danny, who was like a symphony conductor with the appropriate combination of expertise, flourish and warmth. The meal...More

Excellent service. Ambiance is fine . Food was very good, but I did not think exceptional. They do try to add some small goodies along the way. Parking is expensive $21 unless you get really lucky on the street.

Say business casual, but although people were smartly dressed most men with jackets took them off.

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.
