Great View Friendly Service Food" Good "

Last week we should have hit the road instead of eating at the Top of The Hub. The Blizzard hit and it took us almost 5 hours to get back to Westport Ct from Boston. It snowed and snowed all the way home. We saw 5 accidents and an SUV did two 360's in front of us. Why am I... read more

Yea, the title says it all. Service is good and attentive. Decent food. Expensive! You pay the price for the view and atmosphere. Great for dates and special occasions. Not much else, really. Take away the city view and it's a pretty meh restaurant. Dunno if I'll ever go back...

This restaurant is at the top of one of Boston's tallest buildings. One can get a great aerial view of boston from here. Food is good and service great. There is a live band that plays some great music and all in all a great experience

This was my very first visit to The Top of the Hub! It was outstanding. The lobster ravioli was mouth watering and yummy. We also had the Kobe Hot Dog sliders and I had the Creme Brule for dessert and it was all excellent! We enjoyed the view and relaxing atmosphere. Got some great pictures can't wait to come back...

We went to the Top of the Hub for a drink while staying in Boston for one night. The view was, of course, spectacular. The bartender, Sean, was very friendly and made us feel welcome, made suggestions of items we might like to try. The bar was quiet and we really enjoyed chatting with him. We ordered appetizers that were... More

Nice place to get some drinks. Views of the city are great. Menu is ok. At least you should go there once.

Plenty of people say you don't go here for the food, and they're spot on. The Boston Globe is just one recent publication to slam the pompously-titled 'executive chef', who on the night I dined wasn't on site and who his colleagues believe is more well known than his background justifies. Heading out of Prudential MBTA stop, the Top of... More

Went here with my husband for lunch on Saturday. On Saturdays, they serve the dinner menu all day. We decided to do the three course prix fixe menu. I had the tempura shrimp for an appetizer, it came on a bed of noodles with a delicious pineapple salsa. My husband had the bacon, bleu cheese and tomato salad. The bacon... More
