  • The View is Everything
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    This really is an astonishing view, and it makes everything else sort of unimportant. We visited for my wife's birthday and it was just right for that occasion. The food was OK, but (as with all restaurants with a view) *only* OK. Service was attentive but somehow not really smooth; waiter was friendly and interested but just didn't seem quite comfortable in the job. Salads came zooming out before we'd gotten our wine, and so on. As I say, we had a lovely time -- the setting is terrific. Wouldn't recommend it for families or large groups unless money truly is no object.

    My husband and I dined here the night after our wedding. The view was spectacular. We were lucky enough to have a window table, overlooking Fenway Park and the Charles River. Not only was the food delicious, but the atmosphere overall was amazing. Great way to finish the best weekend ever :)

  • Resting on its tired old laurels
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    This was a very unimpressive experience and hardly worth the view that makes it famous. Our server did a decent job, but felt bad for him as he was representing a kitchen that seems to be going though the motions for this tired old tourist trap. I sent my cold soup back twice before giving up and also sent back a cold side dish. When I raised these issues to the mgr. at the end of the night, she was combative & cited all the good reviews they get (hah!). I guess food temperature is in the palate of the beholder. Our entrees (steak & a veal sirloin) were just OK. This restaurant needs a serious makeover in its 70's style decor, its blase attitude and uninspiring food and menu. C'mon ownership - how 'bout a little effort????!!!!

    We were celebrating the anniversary of another couple and the restaurant was very attentive to that, which we appreciated. Our waiter was fabulous and service was very good, even though the place was mobbed. Overall it was a good experience, but the noise level was so high that we could not talk across the table and the temperature was so cold that we were looking for coats to put on. The food was good, but the prices were very high, making the expectations greater.

    The food is disappointing and overpriced. Why would they need to impress tourists who are never going to come back anyway? Insulted that they would not seat us by the window even though there were at least 2 window tables open. The hostess said they were "expecting someone". We had reservations too; was she not expecting us? Those tables went unused for 40+ minutes while we lamented over the food with no incredible view to make up for it.

    Had a 7pm reservation for my daughters 8th birthday only to be asked to wait to be seated in an area that didn't have a place to sit and waited more than a half hour standing with two kids before the hostess came to get us. Food was just OK and way overpriced.

Everything was perfect, making our night even more special.The ambiance,service, & food ,all excellent. Your wait staff simply was the nicest (all of them) making us feel special. Never did we feel rushed . We took in the awe of our view and surroundings..beautiful! In fact we arrived just before an sweeping thunder storm. It was amazing to watch...again to mention, never feeling rushed. Even our desert was scripted "Happy Anniversary: from the chef !. What a nice touch!

    Made a reservation for a special occasion- they accommodated well. We came on time, signed up for a window table- had a drink and then reminded the hostess of our reservation and then a table suddenly appeared open. The food was good- not amazing but that was probably a result of not ordering the right things. Dessert was amazing- perhaps worth the trip by itself for that. No matter the food, the atmosphere is amazing!

    The evening was nearly perfect. Fantastic food, first-rate waitstaff, wonderful ambiance. The one issue we had is that we wanted to sit by the window instead of in the middle of the room, and the maitre d at first said it was impossible for us to do so and then after we showed him an empty table was hesitant, saying that they had later reservations. (Our reservation was for 9:30 pm, the latest seating they offer.) We did eventually move to the better table. The table we vacated and other tables both in the middle of the room and at the windows remained empty for the rest of the night; we didn't see any other diners come in after we moved. The maitre d could have handled this situation better, even though in the end we were happy.

    Our first time here and so happy we came! The waitstaff was outstanding, polite, helpful, attentive. The wine and other drinks were excellent, the veal I had was tender and delicious and my husband's short ribs were outstanding as well. Everything was cooked just right and served elegantly. We told our waiter that we had a gift card from our children and grandchildren, and to our delight and surprise, our dessert plate came with two lit candles and Happy Anniversary written in chocolate at the bottom of the plate. After dinner we enjoyed the fantastic jazz trio and would have stayed longer but we had to catch the T. Outstanding in every way. The view was spectacular and the sunset awesome.We shall return.

    We were a group of 6 people, all out of town that came to spend a few days together. When making the reservation I requested a table by the window and I was very surprised that my request was granted, even tho we were 6. The staff was amazing. I called the restaurant because it was a little confusing about how to get there and the hostess stayed on the phone with us for about 5 minutes to walk us through. Upon arrival we were seated right away. Our waiter offered an amazing service and we were all impressed, since we are all working in the industry

    I was looking for a romantic place, for a romantic date night. I wanted something different. Top of The Hub was the place. It has a wonderful view of Boston, the food was great, and the wait staff was attentive. One small negative mention. That is, the food took a little long to come out of the kitchen, but I was there on a very busy night and didn't mind it at all. Overall I loved it and will go again!
