great views

great place to go for drinks and appetizers. The lounge offers great views and ambiance. There is jazz on Thursday nights. The lounge is less pricey than the restaurant and has great views. There is a dress code.

If you can check this restaurant out for dinner. Make a reservation and time it so you can see the sunset. Just so beautiful watching the sunset over Boston while having dinner and a drink.

The 360 degree view of Boston at night is spectacular but the drinks are extremely over priced! There are some good photo opportunities at the top.

We had lunch at the Top of the Hub. We usually stop here about twice a year. It's quite a treat. The views from the windows are really awesome, especially on a clear sunny day. The food and service are very good. Food prices for lunch are not too bad if you consider the ambience. Cocktail prices are steep.

Went there to celebrate my birthday. Very attentive staff, skilled, professional, knowledgeable and suitably relaxed. Made you feel welcomed and right at home. Great selection of food and wines. Everything was adequately priced. Appropiate waitiing times between dishes. Quiet atmosphere, no loud music as in most other places. Delicious crab cakes, perfectly prepared haddock filet. Staff had taken notice that... More

$150 was the total tab for a couple with glass of wine, tax, and tip. The food was comparable to other very good Boston area restaurants where the total for 2 would be more like $80-$100. Swordfish was like that at Legal, for example. The difference is the spectacular view of the city. We were able to get a table... More

I visited with my cousins a year ago since it was highly rated and enjoyed my visit! It has amazing food and a beautiful view with spectacular service! I decided to return the next year while on a visit to the city again, this time, highly disappointing. I am a 22 year old student and I was asked for my... More

the view, of course, is great. and they did accomodate our request for a window table because it was a birthday dinner. the food was average and the portions small. the wait staff was not as attentive as one would expect for an expensive restaurant such as this one.

We went to Top of the Hub for lunch and the food was very good, but not outstanding, certainly not worth the price tag. The service was what you would expect from a fine dining experience, and they were very quick and nice. The view is unbelievable from the top of the Prudential Center, and I would recommend going at... More

Even without a booking the wait was very short to be seated near a window to admire the city of Boston.
