Menton Restaurant Review

Menton Restaurant 
My Opinions: Barbara Lynch's recently opened fine-dining restaurant is off to a great start! The location, a sticking point for some, is just over the bridge on Congress Street, so it's not too far out of the way and they offer valet.

Although I wish their "lounge" could feel more like its own entity (maybe a partition to hide the host stand), the restaurant was simply beautiful. I loved the frosted white glass lighting, and the generous space between the tables offered privacy - yes, the pre-fix pricing is not cheap, but neither is the food - I enjoyed the 4-course option this time around and I was really impressed ... especially with the chilled lobster and caviar course - The dining room service was impeccable! The staff was extremely formal and attentive, but they did not hover or unnecessarily interrupt your conversation (finally, some old-school manners!) 

Menton also did a great job with its attention to the little details that make dining out fun ... like large hand-chiseled ice cubes for your old fashioned glass and a wheeled cheese cart that travels with a cheese expert - I'm really looking forward to coming here again soon.
