Wonderful view of Bahia, luxurious internal structure, eccentric service and refined dishes and drinks! One of the best in town!

It is an expensive view. Great lunch and bar menu. Dinner had a good menu. I understand the restaurant will be remodeled. I hope they make the restaurant rotate so you get a changing view.

Excellent food, friendly and fast service, awesome views over Boston. If you’re visiting Skywalk Observatory, missing this restaurant would be a crime. You can just walk in and be seated even on Friday night, but I suspect if you want a table near window you...need a reservation.More

When we heard that this iconic dining spot in Boston will be closing its doors in April, we made it a point to visit one last time. We were not disappointed. The food was superb, as was the service. Even though we visited on a...foggy night, it still was a treat to dine atop the cityscape, with an occasional lifting of the fog to reveal the sparking city lights. We will miss this!More

Wonderful view of the city even on a cloudy, dreary Saturday afternoon, elevator to the top makes your ears pop

If you find yourself in Boston for a few days and looking to have a special meal with a special someone (where you dont really care what it costs) head over to the Top of The Hub for lunch, or dinner, and enjoy the food...and the priceless view. The steaks are my favorite here. They will be shutting down in a few months (probably for 1-2 years) while the building owner renovated the top few floors, so reserve your spot soon.More

I have been wanting to come here for a long time, but never made it here until I heard it will close for good on 04/18/20. The view is breathtaking. The staffs are polite and knowledgeable. I am picky about drinks. I stopped drinking outside...after many expansive disappointments. The drinks here I will come back for. I have tried the Orbium Gin and the Cosmopolitan so far, I am looking to go back a third time to try something new. Maybe the lychee martini. Food leaves room for improvement. But the view is worth it!More

Arrived for lunch to find that the restaurant was full. We were offered seating in an adjacent room which worked out well. Good selection of drinks and menu items, and the food was good. Service was prompt and professional and we didn't feel rushed. Lots...of people stood by our table for pictures by the window but we didn't mind.More

Sadly the Top of the Hub has lost its lease, and will no longer be the landmark of Boston dining after April this year. We were able to have one last meal there, and it happened to be lunch which we had never done before....The day was clear and we had stunning views of Cambridge, overlooking so many familiar neighborhoods.. it turned out to be a perfect day for our farewell meal. Our server was wonderful, the prix fixe menu delicious with large portions in each course, their special Top of the Hub label wines were as good as always. Many thanks for the memories!More

Well.. first the positives: (1) the view is magnificent, it may worth it to come here just for the view; (2) the service was very professional, attentive yet not annoying. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Now the not so good: the food was...disappointing, not bad, but definitely not worth the price you pay here. To sum up: if you want a romantic place with a nice view and average food the place fits the bill... although I've heard it closes in April.More

You should get away with that if they still look good; my daughter was dressed quite casual when we were there

It's upscale, but suitable for well travelled children. Try to make it an early dinner.

I don’t know. The best thing would be to phone them and ask and I am sure they will be helpful as all the staff there were when we went.
