The view was excellent!!! I guess it’ll be more romantic at night but still very nice👍🏻 The food was on point with the price; the taste was excellent and the plating was just fabulous. must-go restaurant if you are visiting Boston. ❤️

The view was the star and it was perfect, but the food was great too! The shrimp cocktail was okay, the cocktail sauce tasted like just ketchup [I couldn't taste the horseradish at all] and so it was totally not worth $21. The lobster ravioli was to die for, although it was expensive. It was rich and filling. The lemon drop martini was perfect! The service was excellent. The music was relaxing. I enjoyed the experience totally!

Sat in the lounge, and got the Top of the Hub burger. While the view was excellent the food was less than average and very overpriced for the quality and taste. Could have gotten a better buger elsewhere for cheaper. The server was friendly, but nothing was memorable about this experience besides the view. Probably would not come back.

The waiters were and helping staff were hospitable, attentive and full of a lot of positive vibes as they waited different tables. The manager was outstanding. He made sure our dining experience was top of the line, and he was absolutely pleasant. I’d certainly return to Top of the Hub!

The staff is awesome! We were celebrating our 13th anniversary. We also brought along our two kids. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating and seated us at a table with the best view of the city! We were running a bit late and had to extend our reservation and the staff was very accommodating. Thank you and we will be back soon!

Did not realize you could not bring drinks in from another restaurants because I’m from Louisiana and this is permitted. Chuck the bartender refused to serve me because of this which is ridiculous because we didn’t know

Went with family on a Sunday evening. Wasn't very busy. Very nice setting and good service. Jazz band playing in corner with pleasant music. Can't beat the view while you are eating. SUPER awesome. Couple of veggie options. Tofu noodle bowl great for vegans. Good drinks. Definitely something to do in Boston at least once.

Extremely disappointed with my food. We went there for our anniversary with my fiancé. She got the fillet minion and I got the duck. Both my appetizer (lobster bisque) and duck dish were cold and hard. We have been going for our anniversary every year and this was by far the worst experience.

I brought my friend to celebrate her 40th birthday there. We are from California so it was our first time there. Definitely love the place and the food was fantastic. We had the 5 course fix menu and it was definitely an experience. Very memorable birthday celebration and dinner for both of us.

If I was in Boston again I wouldn't go back. Value was the worst of any of our meals on a 6 day trip. Our bill was $450 for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids.

Positive:
View
Some food dishes - wet aged steak and scallops great. Ciopinno and Halibut lacking.
Nice waiter but not empowered to make decisions to create loyal customers or lasting impact.

Opportunity:
Price - overcharged view
Service mentality from staff: Fire alarm went off loudly for 30 of 70 minute visit - not one complimentary drink or desert offered. Just listen to a blaring alarm while you eat with a waiter apology.
Value - horrible

Would we go back - no
Was the view great - Yes
Food - average many better restaurants in Boston

You are paying for the view—go early enough to score a window table! Otherwise you are not getting what you paid for....

I preferred to have had my seating by the window as i asked for, it was first time i wanted to get some great pic without being all over other people's table. I also dont like how the tables in the middle was so close to others. I felt you having a conversation with your partner, date ect it should be only heard by you too. The tables was to close to other couples as i wouldve liked it.

I'm not from Boston, so i'm not sure if everyone is just rude and that's the norm, but our waiter was pretty rude while we were ordering. I was looking forward to having a nice dinner, but the waiter kept making snide and condescending remarks while we were deciding on what to eat.

My food was great, but I expected a lot better from an establishment like this.

I Spent a lot of money for dinner for four people. We were going to take a few pictures until a employee, not our waitress, told us we could go down to the fifthet floor and take pictures on the observation deck. We thought okay, no problem for us.
We went shortly thereafter to the observation floor. We saw the signs that said there was a $20 entrance fee per person. I went up to to the employee working the front desk. I told him we just had dinner upstarts at Top of the Hub, and we were told to come down here to take pictures. The man said we still have to pay. I told him I don't see why since we would have finished taking our pictures upstairs if we weren't told to come downstairs. We had a table next to the window looking out, why would we pay $80 to take the same pictures we could have taken in the restaurant?
I told him I had the receipt of what we paid for dinner if he would like to see it? He said no, it wouldn't do any good because your waiter would have to escort you down. I said, I think the waiters had more important things to do than leave their other guests and walk us downstairs. He said, sorry we have to pay. He could not see the problem. Needless to say we left without any pictures, which was a big reason to dine at your restaurant since we're from out of town.
Anyone could see how ridiculous their policy was. This put such a bad taste in our mouths that it ruined our dinner and ruined our evening. I would never go back, the food was mediocre, good but not spectacular. The only reason to go there is to see the view, but what good is it, if you can't take pictures. Trying to charge an extra $80 for picture taking is upsured.
