Diner Reviews
  • "My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary dinner here. The sunset was gorgeous and night-time Boston was even more intoxicating. With top-notch food and friendly, easy-going service, the night could not have been any better."

  • "We were 10 It was quite dificulta to get the table (reservation was done by opentable). After 35 minutes we sat and had an OK fish and a very bad meat dishe"

  • "The first thing the staff tells you is: you know it's a 24$ per person minimum. We asked for a window seat and we were at the very centre of the restaurant with at least 4 tables separating us from the view. The noise was very high and the food was not exceptional. Not good if you are looking for a relaxed night!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Top of the Hub is a classic date spot. The food and service are good (but not world class), but the view is the main reason people come here. And let me tell you...the view is worth it. Try to go around sunset; see the city in daylight, then light up after the sun goes down."

  • "It was my first time there, they were able to accommodate a seat by a window and the views were breathtaking. I wish I could post pictures on this. The food was phenomenal and I found our bill to be very reasonably priced given the three course meal, drinks, service, and incredible atmosphere. Perfect date night."

  • "Took my girlfriend there for Birthday dinner. I requested window table on the reservation. They did not give us window table and put us in a corner behind the row of window tables. No point in going there just for food. One can get about the same or better food in North End restaurants. Service was great, but I am disappointed that I did not get the table I requested explicitly on reservation. I could have changed my dinner time if I was made aware of that before I went there. I would not go there again unless I know I am getting window tables."

  • "Amazing experience, service was very professional. Views are great, and exceeded my expectation at sunset. Only downfall was my steak was not the best cut, very chewy."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went there for a romantic evening. The ambiance and decor was modern and luxurious. The view of Boston from the 52nd floor was to die for. We sat near the window and it was perfect at sunset over the water. The wait staff was respectful and the food was delicious. I had the filet minon and my boyfriend had the NY-strip. They were cooked perfectly. The NY-strip was served with the most delicious mac & cheese I've ever had. It was so cheesy and crispy on top. I kept stealing from his plate. We ordered the espresso creme brulee for dessert with berries. It was a little expensive, but worth the delicious meal and view."

  • "This is the Top scenic view in Boston as I have been there several times and would recommend it as the #1 restaurant with a view although the price is pricey"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food is decent but not really worth what it is priced at. You will mostly be posting for the name, view and location. Pretty okay and good for that one special occasion."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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 view was incredible . Our server Cara was lovely and professional . The food was extremely disappointing . The waffles were undercooked , and the options were so limited. What if you wanted just eggs . There was no mention of substitutions The decor is outdated No I will not be recommending this establishment"

  • "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."

  • "Went for a special Borthday occasion for mmy boyfriend. They gave us a beautiful table with a fantastic view. 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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
