My husband and I ate at Top of the Hub for our Babymoon in Boston. The entire experience was magical!! We had the crab cakes for an appetizer, chicken pot pie, sausage and broccoli ravioli, and mousse cake for dessert. It was one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten out! The food came to us hot, fresh, and... More

We just went up after doing the Skywalk Observatory and sat at the bar for a drink. To get the good views, you should def get a table.

Obviously the view is why people flock to this restaurant. The food was good, but not as good as the pricetag would suggest. I've had better meals with a much smaller bill total. The service was great, our waiter was wonderful. We enjoyed the evening very much. Just be prepared to overpay for your meal & drinks. Overall, worth the... More

We really enjoyed our visit to the top of the Prudential Center. Take the 50th floor tour with the headphones and then have lunch or dinner on the 52nd floor. We had a great lunch with very reasonable prices. You really get a perspective about Boston and the history and development of the town.

The lounge is a great place for dinner or just drinks. Arriving a half hour before sunset, we enjoyed the great views and then watched the city lights turn on as the darkness fell. Beautiful!! Service was friendly. A fun and lively atmosphere.

Tips: Sit in the lounge. Go before it gets too dark. Come for drinks, food is better elsewhere. After 8 PM, 25 dollar table minimum, which is approximately two drinks. I only ate dinner here once,my steak was slightly overdone my boyfriends lobster was almost inedibly overcooked. Given the prices these things should not happen. Food was fine but not... More

We ended up at the Top of the Hub on a Sunday and only brunch was offered. Not our first choice, but, we decided to give it a try. The four courses included various breads, pastries, fruits, etc. We liked the egg dishes and cedar planked haddock. The service was very good - no one misses a beat. The real... More

Wonderful view and a lovely drink (cucumbers mulled together with basil) however it was a long wait for service even though there were many empty tables mid day. It seems to me that it would be best to be there just before the sun went down and into the night.

I booked this restaurant for my wedding anniversary. My first impression: Upon walking into the Prudential Building elevators, I had to give a photo ID to the security guard stationed at the base. He then jotted down some info from my license and sent me on my way. I was not a fan of giving any personal information to security.... More
