My husband and I dined here in January . It was fabulous . At time of booking I requested a window seat, which we got and the view was breath taking. Service was friendly and professional and food was served very promptly. The food was as superb as the view , and not over priced. It was just by look... More

I visited over New Year's weekend and it was difficult to get a dinner reservation on a Friday or Saturday night. The earliest available was 10 p.m. We managed to get a late lunch reservation (1 p.m.) for Saturday, however. We also got a window seat. Views of Boston were nice from Top of the Hub, even when it was... More

Top of the Hub is fantastic view, relaxing setting, and unique experience in Boston. While the pricing of the food and drinks reflect this uniqueness, it is well worth the inflated price tag for a beverage or appetizer, or both! The restaurant takes up the entire floor, so your virtually unobstructed view extends out in all directions. Sunset is my... More

The view was amazing. The Pru is really so high up there, that you can see everything for miles! We bought the CityPass to see the Aquarium, the MFA, and the Museum of Science for one price, and this was included. I'm not sure that the view was worth the full ticket price, but it was definitely worth the trip... More

Food is simple bad and expensive. is hard to believe that a place with so much potential is so bad. I recommend you to go to the lounge area have a drink and enjoy the view. Then go for dinner or lunch somewhere else but don't waste your money here because food is bad and I mean it. Cocktails are... More

Yes I have to agree with comments regarding the front door staff very rude we wanted just the lounge menu apparently you can only get this menu at certain tables we had to move our seat to get a different menu. Really in this economy can you afford to turn down business? Smarten up management or you may all find... More

We had out of town guests who wanted an impressive Boston dining experience, and Top of the Hub delivered perfectly! One note prior to my review: I am surprised by people who complain about the expense. This is arguably the best (restaurant) view in Boston, as well as a top-notch restaurant. So while the tab was expensive, the food and... More

The view is really magnificent and the food was very good also. The only fault I can find is that this is fairly expensive but I would still recommend it.
