The view was really amazing and we were lucky to have a clear weather as well! The food was really really tasteful, except for the desert (a cake with coconut ice cream) that we didn't really like. The menu was a bit overpriced though. We really enjoyed our evening there. Totally recommended either for a drink or lunch/dinner.

We came here for a drink before dinner so I can't comment on the food but you really do get a stunning view of Boston from the 52nd floor of the Prudential Tower. We just had a drink each and paid about $25. You can't book in the drinks area so worth getting here early - there was a queue... More

We went during a snowy evening in Boston which was the only reason there were any tables available. It was okay - we only went for drinks ($24 minimum per person. It was beautiful overlooking Boston but I'm thinking that paying $16 to go on the skywalk would be cheaper and more fun. I'll save that for our next visit!... More

Went for the views, stayed all night. Got a table right by the windows for drinks overlooking the city. The band playing added to the upscale ambiance and our group had an absolute blast. Great wine selection, fast bartenders, great vibe. Spectacular views. Will be back!

First trip to Boston and we decided to try Top of the Hub and it was amazing. The bar was packed with lots of fun loving happy people and the restaurant was beautiful. The food was great and the service was very good. I would return the net time I am in Boston...

The service was great with a nice, friendly waiter, but food was rather lacking. My uncle had the swordfish which was overcooked, and I had the cioppino which was fairly bland and had mostly fish with only one clam, one mussel, and one shrimp. The view can't be beat, but save your food-dollars for elsewhere.

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
