Great dinner with amazing view

We have been in Boston for fine days, we don't usually go for the more touristic places, but we decided to try this one. There's a minimum of 21$ per person, which is more important if you want just to have a drink, but if you go for a dinner or lunch it's totally fine. I had the chicken pot... read more

I went here for the view, and it doesn't disappoint. 52 floors up with a view of the harbor, can't be beat We had drinks during the day, was there for the snowfall that broke the Boston record, so that was awesome A jazz band was playing and that made the ambiance special. Unfortunately I didn't like my drink, or... More

We did the walk around on the 50th floor. It is convenient and informative with the headset as each window area is marked and synced with the headset. An interactive quiz area, gift shop and more.

In the past this was a great place with fabulous service and an unbeatable view. I had called ahead and reserved a table. When our group arrived and gave our name we were appalled when the lady at the entrance rudely said 'You called; you don't have a reservation'! Our table did not have a table cloth or napkins and...

The Top of the Hub is on the 52nd floor of the Copley Tower. You the best 360 view of Boston. They have a restaurant and a bar with wonderful jazz every night. There is a minimum consumption charge to sit where the bad is. The appetizer are great and so is the service. You must show and register your... More

We've gone here for several years for lunch and always take friends from out of town. The view is spectacular on a sunny day. I always get the same sandwich the BLT and the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. It may have something to do with the location. Try to sit behind the bar if you only have... More

I have been here a handfull of times throughout my life. But it had been years since I have been here. So the wife and I did lunch today. The view was just as I remembered it, panoramic and breathtaking. As far as views go there is no place in Boston that even comes close at 750 feet above the... More

A group of colleagues and I chose to eat at Top of the Hub in early March on a whim. Fortunately we were able to score a table for 8. The first thing you notice is the view. It is unparalleled in the city in my opinion. The service is top notch and the food is terrific. We enjoyed all... More

The view is the best you'll get in Boston so give it a go! The service however and this may be because we were from out of town with some friends who had a toddler but that's not a good excuse was terrible upon entering. Being stuck in the corner that hadn't been cleaned after the last group had left... More

I have a mixed impression further to my last visit: the view was as tremendous as ever and there was a jazz band playing that was really good: so the atmosphere was very pleasant. However, I must say that the waitress was not nice at all: we had two drinks at the bar and, when we wanted to sit down... More
