Went here for brunch with friends, disappointed with service, food was high priced and not worth it, as the quality was just average.

We had an hour to kill on a Dunday afternoon and our driver recommended we visit the Top of the Hub for a drink. We ended up getting a table and having Lobster soup (awesome). Fantastic views from the top of the Prudential Tower over the city. Boston Common, the Waterfront, and Fenway are easily observable. We only had soup... More

Didn't have food, only drinks. You show up and they tell you that you can sit at the bar and order anything, or you can sit where the view us for a $24 per person minimum. You know what? After one day I'm already tired of getting ripped off in the big city. Time to head back to the 'burbs.

I’ve lived in Boston for 10 years and consistently hear people rave about the cookie platter at TOTH, so went there late last Friday to experience it for myself. My friend and I planned to grab seats at the bar, but the bar was packed so we asked the host to seat us at a table. At this point in... More

Having read the reviews on trip advisor my expectations for the food weren't great but we LOVED it. Our server was lovely and helpful, the walnut and cranberry bread delicious. We went for... More

Top of the Hub offers lovely views ( if you are not put in the room where the piano is ) but is looking tired and dated. The food was average. The selection is average. The presentation is average. We had 8 people for brunch and the bill was well over $500.00 and frankly, not worth it. Go for a... More

A very memorable evening with outstanding view across night lit Boston. When we called, the restaurant was fully booked but our concierge at the Lenox hotel secured a table. You need photograph ID to gain access to the lifts which take you up to the 52nd floor. The ride is smooth and gentle. Not the most welcoming of male receptionists... More

The view from the restaurant was spectacular, however, the food was average for this level restaurant. A few of the dishes were lukewarm and the types of offerings was again, average.
