What a wonderful view! If you’re lucky to have good weather as we did, you will get the full Lookout envoy experience. Brunch was a good deal, service was prompt, and the food tasted great.

Note that the food was served in brown takeout containers with plastic flatware and the mimosas in low glasses rather than flutes; this might have been a wind precaution.

I liked the view but the food could have been better. With the wind it was difficult to eat from boxes that kept trying to blow away. regular plates and silver ware would have been better esp for brunch

We went on a very windy night which obviously cannot be controlled, but we had to hold on to our food which was in a paper box in order to prevent in from flying away, as well as our drinks. Our server checked on us one time for the entire 1.5 hours we were there, and never asked if we wanted to get more food or refresh our drinks (we sat with empty glasses for an hour). I had to actually go up to the bar to ask to pay which is insane, it was not that busy and I kept seeing other tables who arrived after us get served several more times. Even after trying to pay at the bar so that we could leave and go somewhere else that had better service, it still look at least 10 more minutes to get the check. Honestly shouldn’t have even had to pay for the ridiculous service we received.

Great skyline views but not worth the price. We were a party of 5 and only were able to order one app and two rounds of drinks for the whole time we were there because our server kept walking right past us and prioritizing other tables. Very cold despite advertising heated "experience" seating. Not worth the money in my opinion.

The view was absolutely spectacular but the menu prices were pretty steep and service was lacking — despite seeing many workers around, had to flag people down twice to get checked on and place additional orders. I’d say it’s worth the price due to the ambiance and view, but would have liked to see better quality when it comes to food, drink, and service.

90 min table limit is not a good idea. You tend to keep an eye on the timer which disturbs your peaceful time.

Very nice location and great staff. It’s a pity there is poor selection of food and drinks are served in plastic glasses.
Overall we spend an amazing night and definitely a good experience, but could be improved.

I’ve been to numerous restaurants in and around Boston for years. Let me tell you this place has been one of the WORST experiences I’ve had thus far. Myself a few friends enter the restaurant from the elevator and we go up to the host stand to check in. I begin to let the host know I had a reservation, and then while I’m speaking turns the host turns to his co worker to have a separate conversation unrelated to the restaurant. Then we stand there waiting for the host to re-acknowledge us. Finally after we’re acknowledged we sit down. Service was slow and the drinks and food were absolutely disgusting. $17 for a small cocktail placed in a plastic cup. Took 30 minutes out of the 90 total minutes just to order and receive a cocktail, that doesn’t even include us trying to order food. The only positive was the view, and even then it wasn’t worth it. I don’t plan on going back, and would not recommend it to ANYONE.

Love the drinks and atmosphere here but it was frustrating that we had a set reservation and still had to wait 20-30 minutes to be seated and then only had an hour at the table since we were seated so late. My advise would be to get an earlier time so you can enjoy your entire reservation time.

Great bar with a nice view of the river and the city. Service didn’t come back to take our orders too often but they were nice when they did! Definitely on the pricier ends, but the drinks were strong, and worth it.

I’ve been here so many times it’s embarrassing but never in the enclosed upper deck in the cold. The staff was great as always. The food … it’s legit TOP notch (way better than I remember), just very expensive for what you get.

The only odd thing is they don’t serve on silverware but all plastic. I get that for a roof, but when it’s all enclosed like those days they should use proper plates etc.

Other than that - a fantastic place to take in the city.

It took 20 minutes before a server even came over to us, another 10 before the drinks came... it wasn’t horribly busy either. The drinks were outrageously priced for such a tiny amount (mini plastic cups) and honestly not that good. The place smelled like sulfur, it was nauseating. This was our anniversary and was supposed to be a special way to end our night and it was the biggest let down. The only positive was the service we received from the host who sat us, he was wonderful. I was super unimpressed and won’t be returning. We should have just stayed at Mastro’s where we had dinner to cap the night.
