Boston is always good for a fun night out. We saw a comedy show at the theater and it was great. Fantastic seats right up front. We were seated at very small tables and if all the seats had been taken we would have been...More

Went to see The Minimalists here. We were seated at the stage! It was perfect! I do not think there is a bad seat in the place. I can't wait to go back!

Just saw Pat Metheny at the Wilbur. Pat and the band was, as usual, fantastic. I sat lower level all the way back on the left. The bar stool they gave for a seat was extremely uncomfortable. You never saw so many people squirming, fidgeting,...More

Good acoustics and sight lines - cramped seating. Try for an aisle seat, so you can at least move one leg.

I really want to like this place. I go there often enough, and can't be that bad, right? I go primarily because they get good entertainment, but that's where it ends. For a sold out show; it's just not comfortable. It makes an airline trip...More

Wilbur is in a great location. Many bars and restaurants near by. We sat in the high top bars stools. We liked those seats. Drinks were pricey, but that's Boston. We would go back to the Wilbur Theater.

Though this isn't the largest venue, it's a comfortable place with a more cozy atmosphere. The decor, eating, and amenities are fine. Checking in to the event I attended was easy and painless. The bar service moved quickly but was pretty expensive.

My husband and I have been here a few times and it's hit or miss. The first time we went, we had seats at a table on the floor - I enjoyed this because of the waitresses taking our drink orders, but my husband didn't...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I have promised myself not to ever go back to the Wilbur. The seating are not a like a theater. Search the chart of the seating, because when I went I ended on a high stool, very uncomfortable and tight. Good luck

And that is the problem. Not a conventional seating chart. The seating are around tables with waitress serving drinks. Very tight seating arrangement and uncomfortable. Great artists but terrible set up. I will never go back

I do not believe there is any smoking area inside. The security is very good. Inspection of everyone entering and a noticeable security presence throughout the facility
