    Great atmosphere, service, and most important, food. The chef’s menu was well curated and rich of new flavors. Definitely a recommendation for a special event and for someone who wants to have a culinary experience.

    Went for thanksgiving, service was fairly slow but executed well. Appetizers were good but nothing exceptional, somewhere between elevated bar food and something you’d find at Balthazar lol The entrees were prepared so poorly. Over spiced on one dish to the point where the nutmeg made my sister cough and my dish was insanely overcooked. They offered to remake dishes which was fine but it’s just tough to come back from especially at the price point. They forgot a round of drinks at the end but ultimately took care of the one dish sent back. Would definitely not come back, could taste the butter and fat from the entree in my mouth for the rest of the night. Boston fine dining needs a reinvention

    We hadn't been for several years, since before covid, and some things were as we remembered, like the flawless service, but the kitchen is not what it once was. First course was passable - foie gras was fine, burrata was ok, but most of the plate elements added nothing to the dish. I got a mid-course of farfalle with ragout of pork which tasted like it had been in hot-hold for two days. Soggy, washed out pasta, flavorless meat, no trace of aromatics or seasoning in the dish whatsoever. The portion was extremely small, so I didn't suffer long. Mains were bavette (flank steak) and venison. The meat was, admittedly, cooked as ordered - on the rare side. Plating elements were dull and lifeless, poorly seasoned. My plate had a few clumps of spinach which somebody forgot to rinse - I got a bunch of grit in my teeth. And the amounts of meat were embarrassingly small. The entrees were both over $40. Even with the expensive bottle of Laurent Perrier, I do not appreciate spending $650 for dinner and going home hungry. I made some dinner when I got home. Needless to say, 9 Park has lost it's appeal. Luckily, this town has lots of alternatives.

    No. 9 ParkResponded 2 days agoHello Mr. Beuscher, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I am happy to learn that our team was able to offer elevated service, as is standard at No. 9, but am disappointed to find that you did not care for your dishes. We will include all of your notes here in your guest profile and ensure that we offer a menu more tailored to your preferences your next visit. Please reach out to me directly before then at jhawthorne@no9park. I look forward to hosting you again and Happy Holidays!

    No. 9 Park is my all-time favorite restaurant and it never disappoints. The foor was exquisite, from the ricotta fritters (sheer perfection) to the prune gnocchis to the main course of duck. Heavenly ! Service was amazing and it was a wonderful way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    We wanted to have a special romantic dinner for our anniversary, and we got it. Impeccable service from the moment we walked through the door. Lovely sound track. Incredible food. The “Happy Anniversary” message in chocolate on the dessert plate was a nice finishing touch.

    We made a special trip to Boston for my Wife and daughter’s birthdays. The highlight was to be dinner at No.9 Park. We arrived for our 615 reservation with expectations of the same great food and service as usual. It was unfortunately an off night for the crew. We ordered the Chefs tasting menu, which was fantastic. It did however take a really long time.for each course to be served. We were dutifully advised by our server of the expected delay after ordering our drinks. My mistake: I should have ordered a coffee drink. It was obvious that some of the delay was due to the chef’s unwillingness to compromise quality for expediency, which we appreciated. The staff classfully handled the many disgruntled patrons. I think every table ordered the tasting menu! Thanks for handling our night so well despite your issues. We hope to come back again.

    We went for our15th year anniversary. Elected for the tasting menu. The service was excellent and the staff worked hard. The food itself was “fine” for a highly celebrated restaurant but the main issue was the back of the house … it took nearly 45 min - 50 min for each dish to be served. We arrived at 5:15 pm and by 8:45 pm we had yet to receive our main course. Ultimately had to speak to the manager to have the rest of our tasting menu cancelled and refunded —- I could not fathom sitting through another 1-2 hours to finish our meal (5 hour dinner service) Sadly, when I looked around the entire dining room consisted of 4-5 couples waiting to be served looking out awkwardly.

    My wife and I had a fantastic meal! My wife had the burrata and pasta with bolognese sauce and I had the tuna crudo and salmon with beets and for desert we shared the crème brûlée with fresh plum. Everything we ate was delightful and the service was very professional, friendly and efficient. The chef is highly creative without being over the top and the restaurant definitely deserves its Michelin star!

    The food is fantastic! I tried the salmon, and it was the best salmon of my live! For the first time in my life I tasted the wine and returned it. The wine was super sweet and I asked for a dry wine. The waitresses accept my feedback and she recommended another option. So the experience was perfect. Highly recommended!

    no Michelin starred restaurants that I could find but this definitely should be one. stellar from beginning to end. had two "mid dishes" instead of an entre. the foie was the largest piece I've ever seen served and loved every bite. then had the tagliatelle with the Bolognese. just a touch of heat in the Bolognese, which I loved. the apps were amazing also. Wife had the Octo entre and it was also sensational. a delightful experience and would repeat every time in Boston.
