Top of the Hub was excellent for my girlfriend's birthday. Food was excellent, as was the service. It certainly isn't cheap but its not unreasonable either. Not somewhere that I would go with any frequency because of the cost but its great for special occasions. The view is great too, can see the whole city. Would definitely recommend for special occasions.

Beautiful view and fabulous food. Very nice wine selection and great vibe. Been here twice. Would come back again.

The only thing I'd complain about is the noise management. There can be a lot of noise within the space. It has an overall very nice ambiance, just hard to hear others talk if things are hopping throughout the restaurant and bar (I have old man hearing). If we would have been set close to the band, I would not have been able to hear across the table.

It was vert loud with multiple alarms ringing. The food was not so great with my taste. We ordered four course meals. The steak and dessert were okay but the rest of foods was not so impressive.

Overall, I thought it was fantastic. A few things that I wanted to note though-
1) On my reservations, I indicated a nut allergy. It would’ve been good if the staff had reviewed the notes when we checked in. The server served us bread that had nuts but was nice enough to replace the bread with ones that were nut free and not cross contaminated. Also, I had indicated in the notes that the occasion we were celebrating was a birthday and anniversary. It was also mentioned to the waiter that we were celebrating a birthday when we ordered our drinks. When we ordered cake for dessert, I had hoped that it would’ve had a candle and the birthday or anniversary greeting as I’ve seen in other pictures taken at Top of the Hub- not a huge issue but it was a bit of a disappointment.

2) Since window seating is based on a first available, it would’ve been nice if the elevators were accessible at least 5 minutes to opening to the public if you’re going to offer 11:30 reservations.

We went to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. The setting and view are spectacular. The food was average at best. My husband and I ordered swordfish which was extremely over cooked and dry. The service was charmless. We had to ask twice for the sides we'd ordered. My daughter was almost completely finished with her steak before the potatoes arrived. A server came with a dessert with a candle in and 'Congratulations ' on it. I thought it was an attempt to make amends for the poor service and overcooked food. Before we could dig in, another sever came rushing over and whisked it away and brought it to the next table, chastising us by saying you didn't order that!' It was a fitting end to an overpriced and underwhelming evening. Never again!! Also, it is VERY expensive.

The only disappointing thing about our dinner was that our waiter knew we had to be out at a certain time to go see the Boston Pops. But he didn’t inform us ahead of time that some of the desserts require a 15 minute preparation. So we were celebrating our daughter’s college graduation and couldn’t have dessert because there was no time. He should have told us this way beforehand.

The ambiance is amazing. There is a vibe of being in a special restaurant with amazing food, great service, and feeling you are experiencing a truly unique dining experience. The food was among the best I have had the opportunity to experience. All aspects of our evening here was extraordinary. It made our anniversary a more special and intimate event. One I plan to repeat again next year. But I do not plan to wait a year to return.

I went for my birthday with my boyfriend around 8pm and had a wonderful time! The food was amazing (definitely recommend the lobster ravioli), the drinks/cocktail/wine menu was very diverse, and the wait staff was very friendly and respectful. The bill ended up being quite pricy especially for two people but we did go all out with the appetizers and drinks. I definitely recommend Top of the Hub as a special event "splurge" - will not disappoint!

Made a reservation weeks before and requested a window seat for my girlfriend's graduation. It was our first time there and we were very excited. Unfortunately, they gave us a table right in the middle(which we didn't mind that much). But our table was SOOO wobbly and there was nothing that could be done "because of all the reservations" from that night. For the price of the restaurant, the service in general is disappointing(our server was great though).

Absolutely fantastic view, food, and service. From the second the elevator doors opened, I was blown away; then when our meal was finished, I didn't want to leave. I can't wait to go again someday. My only complaint is that the portion sizes were very very small, especially considering their prices. I will admit that I left still hungry after a three course meal. Either way, I will return.

Menu has changed dramatically with nearly every meal a la carte. Lost it’s charm as an elegant and quiet dining experience, it appears to focus on the bar crowd. Even the salt and pepper on tables didn’t function. After d cafes of dining at stop of the Hub for special occasions and an occasional night out, we won’t be back.

The clam chowder was excellent, as usual, and the appetizer (seasonal gnocchi) was very good. Entrees (salmon, tuna) were boring and not well balanced in flavor, as was dessert (cookie platter). Overall, it's a place with a great view, but a tired menu. Not quite worth the price.

Although the view is fabulous, the food did not live up to the billing. My $40 swordfish was overcooked and dry with the promised saffron no where to be found. The "traditional" lobster bisque had insufficient lobster flavor that was swamped by the chili flakes on top. The service was OK but not commensurate with the prices.

This is one of our most favorite spots in the City to entertain good friends, million dollar transaction clients, and special occasions. Food and service is consistently good. Views are out of this world. Always provides a "Wow" factor to first time visitors.

Disappointed that it was a set menu without being told. We did the wine pairing and received no information on the wines. The pork belly and pork chop were very fatty. The peach salad had three little slices of peaches.

Way overpriced - I would have been happy with the normal dinner menu but we were not allowed to choose from this. Nowhere did it say on the website or even on Open Table that we could ONLY choose from the Prixe Fixe menu when reserving this table - I was very disappointed.

Went to dinner at Top of the Hub to celebrate a college
graduation and Mother’s Day. We had a memorable evening- the atmosphere was fantastic such incredible
views of Boston. We arrived at 6:00 so we were able to see
the city by day and watched the sun go down and the city light up. The food was delicious everyone enjoyed their meals our waiter was attentive. Our only complaint was that our table was close to the live entertainment- which
was lovely but made it difficult to hear conversation across the table.

For the price e the food really wasnt all that spectacular. You can get a way better meal for a third of the price at other restaurants in the area. The view was amazing and the band and wait staff were top shelf. But for the money I can most definitely get a better experience somewhere else. Its definitely something to look into doing if your visiting Boston, but if you a local of any kind might want to go else where.

We were here for my son’s first communion on Mother’s Day. The setting is beautiful but the food is only “eh”. I was also a bit annoyed with the service. We had reserved 2 tables and I was told they couldn’t guarantee they would be together, which I get. When we were seated, however, at tables in 2 different rooms one of the tables we were at had a completely empty table right next to it. When I asked about moving they acted as if I was being wholly u reasonable. They did move us in the end but did not handle it well at all.

My girlfriend and I went here for celebrating her passing a certification for work/our upcoming move to Denver. Top of the Hub has always been romanticized. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED. The maitre d'hotel was flat out rude and eyed us suspiciously (my girlfriend was in a conservative dress and I a suit). After being seated, it took over 5 minutes to be greeted by our waitress. The waitress was sweet otherwise. The food was okay, but not worth the price (I'd choose Ruth Chris or Capital Grill over Top of the Hub).

Here was my main issue: unless you sit at a table against the window, you cannot get a decent picture. Our waitress was nice enough to take one for us, but it showed us, another couple behind us, and then a sliver of the skyline (not something we are going to frame). Walking around we saw two adjacent tables against the windows and asked a waitress if we could take a picture, but she said no because we didn't have those seats and it would disturb the guests sitting by the window (the closest guest was ~5-6 feet away). Upon asking the maitre d'hotel , he, again, with an extremely rude, dismissive tone said we can only take pictures at the table we had and gave us a look as to leave. We did happily.

While I understand, you don't want to disturb other guests. If there are no guests there, I don't see the issue.

My girlfriend and I both went to school for hospitality management and worked in the restaurant industry, so it is disappointing to see the pretentious nature of this restaurant.
