The reviews seem as though this is the place to have Sunday Brunch. However, how is one to do so. I tried the Open Table option, with zero luck. Thought, well I'll call. It's been over two weeks and nothing. Makes me question the service once one would make it in. Granted my inquiry is over the New Year, well... More

Best bartender in the back bay is Phil at top of the hub. Great bar staff. He listens well and gives great advice on appetizers and makes great drinks

I have not been at the hub for several years but thought it might be a fun Sunday lunch to take my daughter to. We were sitter very quickly but the place was really warm. Definitely could have used some air conditioning. They were serving pre fix Sunday brunch which was fine with me. The waitress brought drinks and water... More

This is a very fashionable place with an amazing view on the city. But the food is very average and the service is the worst I ever seen. They are very unfriendly!

The View! Have dinner here, at least once, so that you can enjoy an amazing view of Boston. I went in December, so a 5:30 pm reservation allowed for a beautiful evening view. I was lucky and got a crystal clear night sky. The Food The food is good. I ordered the arugula salad (not very pretty, but tasted ok),... More

Our wait staff was very nice, personable, and attentive to our needs - although he didn't hover over us which was very nice. The food was amazing! We had the squash soup (which had a little kick to it) and duck comfit (perfectly cooked) for appetizers. We aren't turkey lovers so we had the braised short ribs and crown roast... More
