No. 9 Park is not worth the money, its good but not great. We didn't have a miserable experience but at $40+ a plate you expect something more than average. The food is mediocre at best, we had Sea Bass and Salmon both were very bland. The gnocchi and mushroom tortellini were just ok as well. I found myself pulling for this place and hoping it would get better and it never did, then they bring you a $200 bill.

I brought my boyfriend her for his birthday and everything we ordered was so delicious! We both ordered off the Prix-Fixe Menu and got different things so we could try as much as possible. To start, I got the mushroom tortellini and he ordered the prune stuffed Gnocchi. Both were delicious! I, personally, liked the tortellini better. You can tell everything is fresh! Next we ordered the Atlantic Hake and Duet of Rohan Duck. Both were wonderful! The Hake was the perfect portion and I was so full eating the duck. When I cut into the duck it fell apart like a pulled pork. It was perfect! (it tastes a lot like turkey for those who have not tried duck). For dessert I got the Creme Caramel which was so amazing. If you go here you HAVE to try this dessert. Its simply amazing. At the end of the meal my boyfriend and I were both SO full. I would say the meal was definitely worth $69.00 per person. Additionally, the staff was so inviting and nice. John and Greg would answer any questions we had about the menu and make great suggestions on drinks (which are all amazing from the bar) and food depending on our preference. On top of that they were super nice and wonderful people to talk to. Thanks for a great experience!

Not worth the money. Gnocchi was good-almost too rich. Our entrees were mediocre at best; monkfish entree overcooked, chicken greasy and seem to include lots of thigh meat. I agree that the deserts are to die for. No bottles of white wine under $75. The service was good however our waiter, while lovely, had dirty fingernails. Ewwwwww. We won't be back and felt it was a huge waste of money.

this is the place to take your wife on your anniversary. food impeccably prepared with many a (good) twist. service is attentive and very helpful in selecting the right dish and a great-matching wine. but bring your checkbook -- it ain't cheap.

This is an example of a restaurant resting on its laurels only. Boston is NOT a great food town, though it is changing. But if this restaurant was to serve people from other communities who DO know what fine dining is it would never make it. Boston eaters base their reviews on what they hear, not on what they taste or what they know about food and how it should be prepared, and they have bought the legend of Barbara Lynch and her rise from rags to riches lock stock and barrel and used it as a justification to give this restaurant reviews it does not deserve. Sorry. My partner and I brought another couple here for a special occasion. My partner and I ordered the prune gnocchi. Our guests ordered what I think was pork belly--I can't remember exactly. My prune gnocchi were flavorful but kinda dense. The pork belly was AWFUL!! Seriously, just a slab of undercooked unsmoked bacon. It was pink, like bacon that has just been pulled out of the fridge after having been there a little too long. It was very poorly executed. AND so overpriced. The wine was excellent, so we ordered two bottles, which made the entire evening worth the trouble. The dessert, I cannot recall. Our guests were visiting from California, so their standards are a little higher than the typical, unsophisticated Boston diner. But, even for Boston, given the fact that there are places like Toro upping the game, I don't think this place is worth all the hype. Get over the hype and save your money for a trip to a city with a better food scene than Boston.

I eat out all of the time and this was one of the worst experiences ever. I found a huge hair in my meal and the server could care less. Eventually after asking the manager too many times he took the meal off of my bill. Shouldn't even have to ask when you hold up a huge nasty hair you just had in your mouth. Dessert and coffee were great. Then I got my car back from valet and all of the money in my wife's purse she left in the car was stolen. Nasty hair in my meal, hard to get them to discount my gross meal and the valet stole from my wife. What a horrible experience. Don't ever go to this pathetic establishment.

It was the first snow day in Boston. Although, by the time we got to the restaurant that night most of the snow had melted away. Walking up from Park Station, you get a picturesque view of the State House as the restaurant's backdrop. Once inside, I was immediately greeted by the hostess and redirected to where the Lady of the Table was waiting for me. We were eventually seated at a corner table with a view of Boston Common and all its trees decked out in Christmas lights. No. 9 Park is quite generous with its bread, and lacking self-control, I took advantage of it as I was hungry. The butter is apparently so rich in fat that the salt is served on the side so you can salt it to your own choosing. Anyway, for appetizers, we had the kampachi crudo and the beets. Both were light and refreshing, even for a cold winter's night. For our entrees, we had the salmon and beef. I enjoyed my salmon - it was cooked as I requested, and the beef I assume was good as well since the plate was completely cleared out. Service slipped up a little when our waiter forgot to give us our dessert menu. Someone eventually gave us the menu and thirty seconds later our waiter came by to ask us if we were ready. No biggie. For dessert, we had the pistachio panna cotta and the chocolate gateaux. I think anything with pistachio is great, so check mark. The chocolate chateaux (with passion fruit in the middle) was OK, but certainly not on par with the earlier dishes. I will be back again in a couple of days, so let's see if Park can hit two home runs out of the...
