Great views

We were lucky to be there on a clear, sunny day. The views were fantastic. Fun to see Fenway Park and the Citgo sign from up above.

Take the Elevator to the top. Dine in style while you enjoy the view. Nothing like it in all of Boston. Great Food, Great View Great service ! Before you Leave Boston treat yourself ! Even if it's only for drinks and a light lunch it worth the trip !

This place is both luxurious and simple at the same time! At night it is fancy with people dressed-up for dinner and during the day is filled with tourists and locals seeking a relaxing meal with great views of the city. They have a Piano bar and a more reserved dining area plus a seating area near the windows with... More

My wife and I went to the bar to have a drink and experience the night lights of Boston. When we got there we were truly disappointed. First and foremost; the bar is facing the wrong way! You come out of the elevator and walk to the bar area and the bar is blocking the view. How ridiculous! Why wouldn't... More

Had a great evening celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary . Was delighted with Robert our server who knew this, and ended up moving us to a beautiful window table! Above and beyond is what that was, thank you Robert for making our evening that much more special! We choose the five course preselected meal. There was a scallop dish that... More

I recommend a visit to Top of the Hub if it is reasonably clear skies. Then, you will have a stunning view of the city.

Honestly, why go to the Skywalk observatory for $17/person when you can go here and have the same view and a martini for pretty much the same price!? This is my favorite spot to bring out of town guests for lunch, dinner or drinks.

My wife and I went here to enjoy an anniversary. It was our second time at this restaurant and it was better than we remembered. We are from Boston and it is cool to see the view of the City while eating a great meal. The white glove service was impeccable. It is also in a very convenient location if... More

The food is good, desserts are really good, make sure you come on a sunny day, the views are much better then. Great place to take first time visitors.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
