One of the most beautiful places in Boston..I loved it..It is more like a bar so they don't have a look of variety on the menu.Most like bar food.But the view is everything 😍

Very limited menu with poor selection at dinner time. Their lunch menu looked better. Views were stunning but this was noth worth it.

The views are outstanding. Comfort level is good, although the music on a Sunday morning was loud and better suited for the evening crowd. The heater helped, but as Fall progresses, it will be too cold on the rooftop to sit at the perimeter tables.(The inner booths may provide less exposure to the elements.) The food was very good despite the limited menu. Our server was attentive, had a good grasp of how the food was prepared, and was very personable.

Nice view, expensive for what you get, potato chips are the side. Drinks also quite expensive. To be expected in Boston I guess.

Very poor service, the lady who brought our food in paper boxes was very rude.
The place and the view is amazing but not good service and the food nothing special.
My first time there and I was expecting to have a good time. They service us with plastic plates plastic utensils and the food came in paper boxes. And the close the check in 90 minutes, literally they kicking you out after 90 minutes. But I didn’t mind because I wasn’t having a good time. I will try again and hope will be better next time.

I really enjoyed the views but the music was too way loud. I had trouble hearing conversation at my table and our table was difficult to eat on with the short tables and lounge chairs. I recommend taking a table with a normal chair! The food was expensive but great service, really friendly staff.

We got a “view” table so we were right there to watch over the city, it was so beautiful. The burger and fries BOMB. Order it, won’t be disappointed.. we were there late so the menu was limited but it’s literally the only burger on there. So good. Our server was great too, forgot her name but she was sweet!

The menu is underwhelming, the service was bad (told me I couldn't put something in as an appetizer - I was a server for 6 years during college so I know that's just you being lazy), my burger was salty, and the price for what you get is outrageous. The only redeeming quality was the view, and the friendliness of the hostess.

It was a lovely view from the table. Went around sunset and doomed to a view of old Boston lighting up and the skies changing color.

The food was quick to come and was delicious. The truffle fries were amazing. They were following COVID protocols and the utensils were also disposable.

Loved the Lookout. Very safe experience in this COVID era. Server was attentive and was working with several tables. Beautiful view to go along with cold beers and great truffle fries.
