I never expect to have great cuisine when one is at the top of a landmark but Top of the Hub is a wonderful exception. One of the best martinis I have had in a restaurant was served up perfectly chilled - rivaled Gibson's in Chicago. From there, each course was perfectly prepared and delicious - I had the duck...

Of course, this is a bit of a tourist place but it really is worth going to. The view is incredible and the food was outstanding. A little pricey but it really is worth it for that special occasion. The servers were extremely friendly and very helpful in the selection. I even broke my cardinal rule not to get up... More

The restaurant has a great view and the food is ok, however we had a bad experience since the entrance until when we left. First the hosts that treat you as you were nothing, then the servers who have no patience with us. To complete with the bad experience, after paying the bill, we went to the side of the... More

We came by at dusk, watched the sun set and saw the city lights come to life! Why go to the observation deck for $16 per person when you can spend that money on a drink at The Hub?! Turns out we made the right choice. Look for the planes coming in to Logan Airport, they are lit up around... More

This is a great spot for an evening meal for the tourist as the view of Boston is superb. The restaurant is at the top of the Prudential Tower. You need identification to get into the building - so bring photo ID. We choose the taster menu with wine. The food was trotted out at speed and it was virtually... More

I will start with the positive - the view is pretty unbeatable. That said, prices are high, which was to be expected. I was in a group of six. Everyone's food was average except for the lobster soup that I got as well as a girl friend who ordered the same. The soup tasted great but then both of us... More

This place was recommended to us for the view, and we are SO HAPPY we decided to go to the Prudential Center and take the elevator to the top floor. Top of the Hub is a delightful restaurant on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center with floor to ceiling windows offering SWEEPING VIEWS of the gorgeous city. It was... More

1st day in Boston after a dreadful experience the night before at Logan Airport, sadly it was raining and we were still quite tired but we came up here for a cocktail and some dinner. I had the New England Clam Chowder, it was OK, but I have had much better in Whitby, Yorkshire, then had crab linguine which I... More

We tried Chef's Tasting Menu. Everything was delicious and it was very filling. We even had the last course and our 24 layer chocolate cakes to go. It is a little pricey. But it was worth it. Definitely a nice treat for yourself!
