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

This place makes you feel like a million bucks, the ambiance reminded me of windows of the world at the trade towers in nyc.

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.

It’s absolutely worth going here for the views but don’t bother paying for the viewing platform, just order a drink in the bar on the 32nd floor and get the views for the price of a few drinks. There is an extensive cocktail list but to be honest they were pretty mediocre. I had a chocolate espresso martini that was... More

Let's say you pay for the view and not so much for the food. We that in mind you'll avoid feeling frustrated. The staff is not specially friendly. But then again, you're there for the view. Awsome! Expect to pay 70$/person.

You cannot fault the views from this restaurant and getting there before sunset and enjoying a meal as the sun goes down and the lights come on is wonderful. The concerns here are they make simple mistakes for the price you pay, such as no separate knife for the bread you use you main meal knife, hostess very unwelcoming and... More

I would definitely recommend that place for couples that want to spend a romantic evening out watching all the Boston lights! great great view. The dishes weren't something special actually, maybe could justify half of the price. But anyway the view deserved the rest.

Yes, you're paying as much for the view as you are for the drinks but the view is the whole reason you go up here in the first place. If you're in Boston and you don't find time to go up here just before dusk so you can watch the city change from daylight to night time before you eyes... More

My now-wife and I visited Top of the Hub at the tail end of our honeymoon before flying home from Boston. The views of the river and downtown were excellent. If we had more time, we might have just relaxed for an extra cocktail and watched the flights on approach into Logan. The food also was very good - we'd... More
