No. 9 Park Review

The stellar cuisine at Chef Barbara Lynch's first restaurant continues to draw plenty of well-deserved attention from its place in the shadow of the State House's golden dome. Settle into the plush but unpretentious dining room and indulge in pumpkin risotto with rare lamb or the memorably rich prune-stuffed gnocchi drizzled with bits of foie gras, the latter of which is always offered even if you don't see it on the menu. The wine list bobs and weaves into new territory, but is always well chosen, and the savvy bartenders are of the classic ilk, so you'll find plenty of classics and very few cloying, dessertlike sips here.

    No. 9 Park Review

    The Emperor's New Clothes? We loooove Sportello so when we finally got my mom to come see us and babysit we jumped at the chance to dine at number 9. Should have returned to Sportello or our favorite, Toro. Points for effort and novelty, but the 7 course tasting menu smacked of trying too hard to be avant garde.

    Won't be going back.

    One of Boston's best upscale splurges

    On the short list of Boston's absolute best, a high end splurge with fine food, excellent service, and pleasantly understated decor. Very expensive, but worth it. Dress up and make reservations.

    When I Die and go to Heaven

    I want it to be No.9 Park. Exquisite food, brilliant service, a memorable evening and my first port of call on every visit to Boston in the future.

    Get the 7 couse dinner

    I recently dined at No. 9 Park, Radius, and Excelsior, all of which were very highly rated by you. The first two restauants were superb, both in the food and in the personel. Radius also had a very pleasing decor and ambiance. I was highly disappointed in Excelsior, both in food and service.
