Visiting Boston from out of town. We decided to check out the rooftop patio for drinks after dinner. Once we got to the reception, it felt very unorganized. We asked the hostess for a table and she brushed us off by telling told us to stand by the side wall where there was a gentleman who appeared to be acting... More

Get a corner seat, makes for the best view. Get the Pork Chop w/caramelized apples with mac and cheese, it was out of this world. The Crème brûlée was the awesome.

Restaurant cited on floor 52 of the Prudential Centre. Excellent views and really good food. Would highly recommend this but do remember to take some photographic evidence with you or you won't even get into the lift.

As others have said, you come here for the view. The food is good, but considering the price, it's nothing too special. I would recommend coming for cocktails and enjoying the spectacular panorama of the city.

I contacted top of the Hub to book a table on 4th July over a month ago, they informed me the menu and tickets will be up online a few days later and the bar will be open that night if I can not get a reservation. Looking at the set menu for that night I knew my husband would... More

On the top floor of the Prudential Bldg, you can see a panoramic view of Boston. We had a special brunch on Mother's Day. The food was divine! Several light courses before the main entrée. Good choices & dessert was delicious!

My husband and I had lunch at the Top of the Hub on June 16, 2014. It's a great restaurant and also a huge "must visit" when in Boston. The view is amazing. It's on the 52nd floor of the Prudential building. Our service was excellent. They really cater to you. The glass of wine that I had was the... More

If you like the view at the Portland City Grille in Portland, OR, or the view from Mix at the top of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, or the view from the top of the Space Needle, you will appreciate the view from this place. From its perch at 52 stories you can see everything, and the sunsets are... More

Had booked dinner for our first proper evening in Boston, unfortunately the only available view was cloud apart from a couple of brief glimpses, so we returned for lunch on our last day. Food, service and (finally) the view were all excellent
