Food was great and the view is probably the best in Boston. 52nd floor of the Prudential Center. Spectacular

The food was delicious and the view was absolutely stunning. Went for the 3 course prix fixe menu with wine pairing. Enjoyed all the food and wine. The cocktails were also well worth trying.

The location is one of the best in Boston, amazing views of the city from the 50th-something floor. The food was OK, certainly not proportionate to the restaurant's level.

Went for lunch on a Friday. Made reservations the day before but wouldn't t have needed them, as we arrived at noon to leave time to get to a 1:30 BSO concert and it was nearly empty. Courteous staff, good waiter, always there to do his job promptly, but not intrusive. Wife and I both had Prix Fix lunch. Pork... More

We decided to take this attraction as it provides a 360 degree view of Boston. The audio guide is quite good as are some of the exhibitions but over all it's a bit underwhelming. A lot of the windows are in need of cleaning so taking good pictures is a little challenging. Some diagrams highlighting the features you should be... More

Been here twice for lunch. Sat at the window both times. Excellent views of Boston. Lunch menu is limited but the food is good.

Came with my husband, the food and service there is good. But the view is not very beautiful, maybe our seat is not near the window. And the price is high compare to the common bar. I think the living expenses in Boston is much higher than Toronto.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
