I had heard that Menton was one of the finest restaurants in the world. Having been to some of them (French Laundry (Ca.), Noma (Copenhagen) Le Louis XV( Monte Carlo), and most of the 5 star restaurants in NYC, I felt safe in choosing it for my husband's special 60th birthday dinner. I cannot say enough about the food and... More

We dined at Menton last night and ordered the Prix Fixe and were underwhelmed. The appertifs, which were cute, were not really that special. The pork had a cutlet that could have been out of a freezer and the texture of the vegetable mixture under the lobster resembled more of the rocks upon which the lobster would sit in the... More

An amazing meal in a beautiful setting with an exquisite staff. We had the 4-course prix fixe menu. Each dish was an intriguing blend of color, texture and flavor. All the ingredients were fresh, expertly prepared and served in stylish dishes appropriate to the contents. The staff was careful, informed and unobtrusive while friendly and helpful. This is one of... More

This restaurant has a lot of hype around it and I always wanted to go because of that. So I reserved this restaurant for my fiance's birthday. Service wise, this restaurant was exactly what I was hoping for. Excellent service from the time that I called to make a reservation to the time I left the restaurant. Making a reservation:... More

I waan't expecting my trip to Boston for a course at Harvard to turn into a course in fine dining but boy did it! Since I was traveling alone I was at first hesitant about the idea of sitting by myself in the dining room since there is no Bar (that I saw or was offered when I emailed -... More

Let me preface this review with full disclosure - I represent a large full service event company working with clients worldwide. We have done thousands of dinners at venues as upscale (or higher) as Menton for decades. This review is for my experience booking a private event. That said, I recently sent a request for pricing for a 128 person... More

I'd been highly anticipating my visit to Menton, considered by many the best restaurant in Boston. While I enjoyed my meal, it wasn't quite the world-class experience I was expecting. One simple example would be the macarons, which were unevenly cooked, some perfectly done and others overcooked and dry. Wine pairings were enjoyable, as was the service. Desserts were not... More

You arrive to valet parking- $18.00. You know this evening will be expensive. We sat at a nice table where we could see all. The staff scurried around and at times we felt a little neglected. The food was expertly prepared and tasted very good, although the presentation to me was a bit eclectic. I think the attempt was to... More

Our first visit and it was amazing. The staff are attentive and friendly. The menu offers delicate flavors with complementary sauces and sides. Many surprise extras of bread and cheeses make this venue a cut above. Enjoy! Truly haute cuisine.
