Amazing View VERY PRICY

The view at Top of the Hub was breathtaking! But be prepared to pay 102.00 for a steak, 78.00 for pasta! Maybe go up just for a couple pictures early before the dinner crowd arrives

We lucked out by not needing a reservation and were seated right beside the windows! View was incredible and food was great too! We had the chicken pot pie, the lobster bisque and a spinach & walnut salad! All terrific and so was the wine! Well worth the price of a meal!

We wanted the view but didn't want to pay $19 a person for it on the 50th floor. Go up to the restaurant bar "top of the hub" buy a beer and enjoy the view. No reservations needed for the bar!

We had reservations for Sunday brunch. Once we got there, they gave us a table with not a great view, inside a closed room and next to the kitchen. There were around 8 empty tables, obviously better. When I asked the hostess if we could switch tables, she told us we had to go back to the waiting area and... More

We were recommended to try this place. We had after dinner drinks there at sunset, amazing views of all the city, wonderful waitress who was so friendly, has no idea there was a minimum spend until I just saw other review, but $24 isn't difficult to spend. Lots of people eating and it looked good. Definitely will have dinner there... More

Great view of Boston anywhere in the restaurant. The food is just moderate for the hefty price. One is mainly paying for the scenery as tradeoff for food quality. Definitely worth eating to experience though.

I understand the minimum spending of 24$ , what I believe is that us rude and unpolite to stop the customers in the middle of their business conversation because the waitress remembers the minimum spending with an hilarious and rude tone Nice view, quite good drinks, very rude and unpolite service

Most people go here for the view and what a view it is especially on a clear day. The food was good but the service left much to be desired. Oh well great view.
