One of Boston's Best

Menton feels like a place that is trying to get Michelin stars. The decor is simple but elegant, the staff is perfectly trained and there appears to be an army of knowledge people monitoring each table.

Delicious tasting menu with wine pairing and caviar. Use Archimedes law of leverage because you will need a bag of gold but it is worth it. From the first bite to the end it is a memorable experience. Enjoy!

I was invited to this restaurtant for my 20th reunion at Harvard. As the Founder of the Wine & Cuisine Society, I love to experience new concept concept. A French-Italian Cusine that is merging the best of both culinary world is indeed a very promissing offer based on simplicity and taste. But unfortunately Menton's cuisine puts the emphasis on "Chichi... More

This expensive restaurant has nothing to offer to food lovers. It was not tasty at all, flavourless and most importantly heartless, not honest food at all. Vegies were undercooked, service so so and food quality really scandalous. Very dissapointing! To be avoided.

For my wife's special birthday celebration we came over from the UK where we live to spend a vacation with my son, daughter in law and grandkids in Boston. We had a wonderful time visiting our family, which was capped off by my son treating myself, my wife and his wife for a celebratory meal at Menton. Whilst there were... More

Unforgettable dinner at Menton. Greeted warmly at door and seated and a cozy lunge area. Once seated the magic all began. Beautifully crafted and composed dishes came out of the kitchen for our delight. Our table captain, John, was very professional and informative. He really helped highlight our evening. Wine list is a bit abbreviated for a restaurant of this... More

Very attentive service. Music soundtrack was cool. I liked how they run a silent French style kitchen where all you can here is "oui chef". Wine was delicious. We opted for a bottle over the wine pairing. Food, all 12-13 courses, were delicious. The presentation was beautiful and unique. Some courses were richer than others and by the end we... More

Super food. Super service. 8 course fine dining. As good as it can get. The best part, however, was the description of the dishes before each course.

I and my 4 college roommates and wives capped off a wonderful 50th Reunion with a very special dinner integrated with very special wines in the private dining room with views of the kitchen. The dinner equalled great dinners at the best restaurants. The combination of tastes and savors, colors and shapes and textures created a complete presentation. The wine... More

I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant and was disappointed. The flavours were not interesting, distinctive, or special. Plates and presentation were a tad messy. The beer pretzel was the best tasting item — good texture and flavour. Would not recommend it to my foodie friends. Very average for a far from average price. The space was cold... More
