We had a meal at the top of the hub while visiting family and the whole place blows you away! The food was very good. The service was excellent. The view was amazing even for a slightly foggy day and the prices were reasonable. Well worth trying at least once.

We had a very friendly waitress, and the food was good and not too pricey. What really makes this a special experience is the view, though. To be fair, we went here on a foggy day, and could just barely see the ground, but we have also been to the SkyView two floors down, and know that the view from... More

I went to Top of the Hub for this first time for brunch this past weekend. It was a clear sunny day, so the view was gorgeous. There were eight of us seated at a large round table, and the staff were very attentive and my water glass was never empty. The brunch menu is 4 courses ($40/person), starting with... More

Fabulous night capped of by Fabulous service. The views from the 52nd floor is breathtaking. Even if you just pop up for an afternoon cocktail (as we did) or you come back to have an evening meal (as we also did) Highly recommend the five course Degustation menu. advice is to arrive before the sun sets so you can enjoy...

I had written a glowing recommendation for this restaurant in the fall of 2014. Unfortunately, my second visit had me wondering where all the good food had gone. This time our group of around 50 people had gone as a holiday celebration. The view was gorgeous in our room, the appetizers were good - crab Rangoon which were crispy, large... More

Very fun restaurant, made a reservation online for 6:30pm on a friday night. We were seated right away when we arrived. The waiter was very nice, he made us feel very comfortable. The food was very good. Dessert was excellent, we had the chocolate almond cake. The view was incredible, great restaurant for a special night out.

Mainly ate here it for view. We weren't in business attire so it seemed they sat us in the back with another family that was also dressed in jeans. We had mini hot dog sliders which were very meaty tasting. Hard to explain, but they were still good. The tuna tartare was good as well, but my favorite was the... More

It was an excellent place to meet with old friends and talk for as long as we liked, never urged onwards by waitstaff, but always made to feel welcome. It was lovely looking out at the lights of greater Boston far below, and the room we were in was quite quiet. We all enjoyed our meals, we all had different... More

The Top of the Hub is a perfect place to have a good meal and look out over Boston. However, the rather sterile atmosphere at lunchtime is not helped by over-hasty and officious staff who are eager to have you eat, pay and leave. Apparently, customers are not allowed to pause and look out at any view not directly by... More
