This place has amazing views which you can also enjoy from the bar area without spending so much. Food is not as good as what is charged for it. So drink contentedly by the piano and view

We had a dinner reservation for the restaurant, but after reviewing the menu for dinner and the lounge menu, we decided to try the lounge. It was a little less expensive, and we liked the choices better. The set three course was $46, and we had Caesar salad/fish and chips/creme brûlée and house salad/NY strip/chocolate peanut butter dessert. Everything was... More

Great place to have a fancy dinner with a view of Boston, or have a good cocktail. Make reservations for the restaurant early (weeks ahead some times)!

You have a very good view of Boston from here. I was there in the evening, and it was great to see all of Boston fully lightened.

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

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.
