Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant has a great view and good service, however the meal was mediocre at best. Lobster soup and special appetizer were good but main dishes were a disappointment. Our waiter Martin was quite good however. Go for service and a beautiful view."

  • "Thought it would be nice to take my girlfriend for the first time. Specifically asked for a window table and were sat almost as far from the window as possible and within 6 inches of another table so privacy was off the table. Other couples in the room got relocated to the window upon asking but for some reason they could not move us and we were not given the option to wait for a table to open up. We were 15 minutes early to our reservation and were willing to wait. Food was fine but spicy lobster bisque was high point. Some were dressed too casual (We had gone to the afternoon Sox game too but made sure we changed before going out to eat.) Just enjoy the view, don't feel the need to wedge next to people eating to take pictures."

  • "We are very disappointment with our visit. We made a reservation for our first visit which made ​​the approach we celebrate the birthday of my wife and my son goodbye first came to Boston, for which we had requested a table by the window. Apparently no one read the approaches that we wrote on the reservation that if the waitress did not ask if we celebrated something in particular, had not been heard. I assume that for this reason no one read the notes of booking. To top it had, a large number of tables available in window while waiting for a table and then locate. However the waitress service was excellent..."

  • "If you are anywhere near the Prudential Center, you must make some time for an absolutely unforgettable dinner with an equally amazing view. This is the place to be, especially when celebrating a special occasion. Everything from the arrival to departure was perfect, not the least of which includes the waitstaff. They should be commended on all levels, and anyone who does not get there would be doing themselves a great disservice."

  • "Awesome food, awesome service, and wow is that view just awesome. A great place to save for a special occasion if you have a good chance to go you will not be disappointed. If you don't want to spend the big bucks for dinner you need to go up and grab a drink, what a place."

  • "It was the second time that I have ever been to Top Of the Hub. The only reason that I would come back is for the view. The first time I went was with some friends, great view, seated by the window, food was mediocre. My friend order a steak and requested medium rare, came out overcooked. He had it sent back to the kitchen and it came out overcooked again. What were the chances? This time we were seated at a rather quiet corner area by the window. I did not like the service. Waiter looked angry the whole time, took care of two other tables next to us: frequently checked with them, but checked with us only once the entire time we were dining. If I go there next time and he waits on us, I am going to change tables or even not dine in there"

  • "Saw this restaurant when checking out things to do in Boston before we visited. Great to have a meal with extensive views of the city so booked before we left England hoping to get a window seat which we did. I was amazed it wasn't full at $25 for three really tasty courses from the set price menu! Great value, great food, great service."

  • "We had brunch at Top of the Hub on our last day in Boston after a fun-filled July 4th weekend. It totally exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend it for a special occasion dinner or brunch or even just drinks at the bar. The views were fabulous and the food excellent!"

  • "Just had brunch a the hub. Jaw dropping views. Food and drink priced fairly. If you want to have a meal with a bit of style and a lot of wow factor then top of the hub is a must. However, do take a photo ID as security for the prudential building (the hub is on top) is fairly tight, it took us 5 minutes to convince him to let us through."

  • "The waiter was lovely and presented the molten chocolate cake dessert with a candle and chocolate birthday decorations. The wine list and menu were very good, catering for small or large appetites. Boston put on a gorgeous day for viewing the city from the 52nd floor. Very relaxed atmosphere and perfect level of service."

  • "My girlfriend and I took a weekend to Boston for our Anniversary. The Top of the hub was our choice for an Anniversary dinner. When we first walked in the views are incredible! But other than that everything was average to say the best. I ordered 10oz filet med. that was cooked almost well done. My girls salmon was good. We ordered desert that was not baked. Then they sent us 2 more out by mistake not knowing the first ones already came out. The waiter was very pushy. We felt very rushed. Like he wanted to get us in and out to make more money on the next customers. The place I personally fell is not a romantic place. Its more of a basic restaurant feel but youre paying for the views. We had a $300 bill. for the money go somewhere else."

  • "Our waiter ( Bladymir) was excellent, he was attentive to my wife and I. Not rushing us during dinner. We had the best table in the restaurant, in the corner. Had a great view of the Charles River and the Boston Common. Food was very good, we both had Halibut. We look forward to returning back to the Top of the Hub"

They even brought out a 'Happy Birthday' note written on the plate that our dessert came on and a candle. Service was perfect, waiter was delightful. Food was delicious. It's expensive but worth every penny."

  • "Consistently outstanding. The primary server, Martin, made us feel so welcome and 'special'.We got the corner table with panoramic views. The food was superb. Best ciappino I've ever had...and the bread...Oh, the bread. We travel from Maine once or twice yearly to celebrate daughter's birthday and catch a show. We won't dine anywhere else. The service, food and 'wecome back' feeling are the draw. The view, though breathtaking, is secondary to the outstading service. I recommend the Hub to everyone I know and have never had anyone say they were disappointed. Your attention to fine service and menu choices makes all the difference. Thank-you for another memorable experience. We'll be back next time."

  • "We loved the view of the WHOLE of Boston; very romantic. The filet mignon was outstanding!!! The boston cream pie also outstanding!!! Was pleased that we had a table by the window as requested. Was not pleased with the service. Server was not attentive or personable and did not get the memo that this was an anniversary until it was too late, although did apologize after the fact. The Jazz trio was also outstanding as well as the waitstaff in the lounge area~wonderful ambience, we even danced :D"

  • "This is my second time at Top of the Hub and was delighted to be there with a friend who was visiting from abroad. Our reservation via Open Table ensured us a table near the windows that allowed beautiful views of the city. It is a place I would take people I want to "show off" the city and what it has to offer. We selected the prix fix menu and all the items were delicious. Server was polite although took the opportunity to add to our requests - wine, beverage and later coffee etc which we turned down. The place allowed quiet space to sit and enjoy the food, company and space."

Each of the 5 courses was perfectly paired with wine including a excellent port with dessert. Perfect spot for a special occasion."

  • "I want to pass along my sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff of Top of the Hub. On Saturday evening my girlfriend and I had a very romantic dinner together. I had contacted TofH earlier in the week informing them that I would be proposing to her that night. The staff was incredibly helpful, ensuring we had a window side seat as well as checking in with my throughout the night. When it came time to ask the question, our waiter actually video taped the proposal (I had slipped him my phone earlier), something we will have for the rest of our lives. The food was amazing, the scene unbelievable and the service was impeccable. Thank you!"

  • "The food I ordered was not good at all, I had a tiny bite and didn't like it , waiter asked how it was I said I didn't like it .he had to ask his manager if it could be returned . He came back and said no that I already had a taste of it. How was I suppose to know I didn't like it if I didn't get to taste it? By looking at it? All in all I'm upset that I spent that kind of money to share my girlfriends meal with her. I understand the cost of the meal but a new plate would have been cheaper than me telling people my food was not good at all and I didn't eat it for the price I paid for my bill"

  • "The service was excellent but the food was (unfortunately) mediocre. Two of the four os us had steaks that needed to be sent back for additional cooking. Mashed potato servings are meager; about the size of a small ice cream scoop. Waiter was terrific."

  • "I've eaten at TOTH a few times and this time was still as great as the others. I celebrated my graduation here with family members and our large-ish group was treated well, the waiter catered to my grandparents requests and answered all of our questions. The food was fabulous as well as their wine list. The house wine is yummy. I would definitely go back here and am happy we were able to get a table since it books up so fast. The views are as everyone says, spectacular."

  • "Always a great experience - food, service and views. But this time we ordered one each of the two specials. Later were informed that one special was sold out (although still early at 6:30 PM). The other special (sirloin) was gristled throughout. This was not our usual experience there but will make us think twice before going again."
