This place was awesome!! Staff was so nice, food was good and the view was amazing!!!!! Highly recommend.
We had a amazing time! Everything was magnificent. The view was everything
Beautiful!! Great for a birthday - a little disappointed by the to-go containers for food though.
I had an amazing time, I definitely would return .
I had a great time. The food and drinks seemed overpriced for the quality and quantity. However, it was evident that you paid for the view.
The atmosphere is great, you are looking out over the water, and have the most beautiful view of Boston. The menu was extremely limited and paper (which no restaurant has at the moment) we looked at the menu online and when ordering got instructed that the paper menu is the only option, and the server seemed annoyed with us. All through our meal, we felt as if the staff wanted to flip the table rather than having us stay to eat and drink more. We never got asked if we wanted a second beverage or anything else but instead got the check dropped off, making us feel rushed. This was a special day for us as my engagement was being celebrated and my birthday and I'm highly disappointed... want to come back due to the view but hope experience overall will be better. Willing to give this place a second chance.
Excellent views, great location. The patio is decorated really nice. Not enough heater coverage if cold and windy. All bar food and very greasy but good for drinks. Everything was served in disposable due to COVID-19, including wine. Not very convenient if you are looking to have food. Our server was very nice but the manager was an anxiety ball. After 90 min, we wanted to be respectful and asked for check. Server was busy so it took her another 15 min to get the check. Manager comes over and was a bit rude to my husband, without knowing it was the delay at their end. Regardless, would recommend it.
Marg was spiiiiiicy
Service was very unwelcoming and made us feel uncomfortable for even being there- server was rude and didn’t communicate with us. Drinks and food were great, however!
Our waitress was good but one of the managers was rude and unprofessional. We asked to be seated at a different table next to the heaters and we understood that it was a busy place with reservations only but the way the message was delivered to us was rude and unprofessional. The manager on duty that night did not service our request with kindness. She was blunt and mean unfortunately. Other than that the place and ambiance was good and beautiful.
The restaurant isn’t as advertised. We had to sit inside because they overbooked our reservation.. and we did not get to sit outside or enjoy the “Lookout Rooftop”. Also, bartenders don’t wear their masks correctly.
If you want a simple bite to eat with drinks and an amazing view Rooftop is a great option.
Food quality doesn’t meet expectations of that place. Super expensive for value you get.
Drinks great! View great!
Disappointed in our seating. Made reservations several weeks ago for 5 pm. When we arrived, we got seated on the backside and not even along the edge where there was a nice view of the water, no heaters or fires on our area either.. When leaving I saw the prime seating. How early do you need to make a reservation or leave to get a nice spot? Maybe you need to be a regular or slide a big tip to everyone prior to being seated.
Ambiance was perfect! Drinks were delicious! Amazing spot to go to if you’re visiting Boston!
The woman downstairs ended up checking us in for our reservation but made us wait in the lobby for 30 min bc we were early. We got there at 8:30 and reservations were at 9. She never came in to get us so i walked up to her at 9pm and it seemed like she completely forgot about us and told us we can go upstairs to the roof bar. When we got upstairs the hostess was confused bc it said we checked in at 8:30 and she was extremely rude about it. Then we get seated INSIDE... the only reason why we wanted to go was bc it’s a roof top bar and we wanted a nice view. We asked her if we can go outside and she said nothing is available. Also they only give you a 1.5 hour time limit and we were sitting for at least 20 min and no one walked up to us to get our order so we left. Such a waste of time.. i would never go there again after that experience.
Poor service, rude hostesses and not worth the money, since there’s only a “chance” you’ll get a table with a view and the food is subpar.
Awesome night despite being fogged in! Next time we will enjoy the view - still fun 😀
Venue was physically nice. Food ok but not substantial. Weather is unpredictable, extremely foggy. No view. Management cavalier with COVID protections!! Allowed large group, 20+ to overwhelm one end of restaurant. Groups of 8 ant 10 crowded around couches designated for 6. This breaks protocol. Should be reported to state. Very unsafe for wait staff and those seated near.
The vibe, food, and drinks were great. Not many options for other dietary restrictions. Would still recommend for a cute date or night out with the girls
place was good but drinks and service were not upto the par
Our waiter was very rude and disrespectful to us. Never took our order and kept walking by us as we were saying we were ready to order.
Left without eating
Your staff are friendly & work together well as a team. The facility is very clean. The music was good & energetic. The view was everything. Thank you all.
Very friendly staff , food menu not a lot of options . They should definitely have chicken wings on the menu for late nite . Fries and drinks very yummy. The waiter was great and kept asking us if we needed anything , very welcomed . The view was beautiful too !
It was chaotic. The food is extremely overpriced and you only have 3 dinner options. Came out late and we had to remind multiple staff members about it. Couldn’t tell who our server was and the workers weren’t wearing matching uniforms. Very disorganized and the drinks are $18 where you get a plastic cup and half of it is filled with ice.
You are strictly paying for the view so if u want a meal and a photo, you’re basically going to pay $120 for that photo.
incredible view, incredible service. this is THE rooftop spot in Boston
Beautiful, breathtaking Boston harbor views
Servers were constantly cleaning
Great place to eat and hang out safely (ie COVID). Looking forward to going back when the igloos are set up!
It rained on us that night but it was still very beautiful.
Apathetic service unfortunately
Very loud, sat us at the one table where the heater was broken but thankfully wasn’t too cold. The food menu was limited and shrimp cocktail “dinner” was 5 pieces for 16$ but overall it was good food and great ambiance!
Too many young people getting hammered so early in the day. Not a good look, felt like chi I was at a day club.
The quality of the food was much better than expected, but for a place that markets itself as posh and for those seeking a high quality food, drink, and ambience experience, it is surprising to walk in and realize all food and drink is served in disposable containers. Maybe he was not having a good day, but our waiter also seemed like he'd much rather be somewhere else.
My boyfriend and I stopped through Hudson on a whim having never been there before. We read great reviews
My reservation was for 1015 and I arrived for 1010 and we didn’t get seated until 11pm. What’s the point of making a reservation if I can’t be seated timely
Excellent nachos, tacos, and tostadas. Everything was organized well for COVID regulations.
The host was not too helpful as she seated us on a table that had poor view.we had to ask to get to seated a nicer table
Very nice ambiance and beautiful views of the Boston skyline
The view is absolutely spectacular, however I recommend this place for just drinks the food menu was average having your typical burger and Caesar salad items. I’d love to see some creativity and make the gastronomy more of an experience.
View was beautiful, staff was kind and even made us some great drinks. Food menu was very small. Being a vegan I only really had one option. Which was very good but wish there was more to pick from.
