I was a little sad when my guests clam chowder came out with the meal, instead of before as asked. Additionally, when the wait staff asked us if we wanted to have dessert in with the live music..which required closing our tab on this side of the restaurant to go to the other side and open a new tab, only to have the live music stop before our dessert was served. Though they tried compensating with giving us the clam chowder; I was disappointed in the ask to move out table just three minutes before the music was set to end...as it clearly was an attempt to get us to close our tab and move us to the lounge, so he could go home without thinking of our comfort.. not trying to I am snobby, but when you go to the prudential center you pay for service.. As we were already on to dessert and closing the evening there was no need to move us. The food, music, atmosphere was great!

Such a gem. A truly beautiful place to go to, the view is breath taking. The food was wonderful, all of it. It is a bit expensive but this is not an everyday place. The portions are normal, not small. Something you definitely need to experience!!

While visiting Boston, we thought this would be a great spot to end our stay by towering over the city. The views were magnificent and the service outstanding. We had the tasting menu with wine parings. One of the courses was disappointing, but everything else, especially the creme brulee were divine.

We have requested Window seating a week ago while booking reservation, unfortunately we weren’t lucky to get that. Staff was rude and not considerate.

Food quality is not great and not even the view.

Not worth it

Too loud...too many tables in a what is a very nice venue with a great view.

Food was okay, service was okay, serving size was much smaller than expected for the price.

Overall eh, wouldn’t go again. Beware the $24 charge for the lounge if all you want to do is have a drink and enjoy the view...it is credited back at the bar for drinks...

Went for an early dinner on a Sat at 530p.

Pros:
1. The service was one of the most attentive and courteous I’ve had.
2. The view was outstanding.

Considerations:
1. Noise picked up quite a bit by 7p. Still able to have a conversation tho.
2. Food was good but there are other places in Boston with the same or better. The service and view is what stands out.

We had the seafood cioppini, filet steak, Portuguese chicken, and salmon for main courses.

This isn't my first time at this restaurant. I don't mind paying the price for the ambiance and the nice view the swordfish was a little dry last night and I always order swordfish and halibut if they're on the menu.

Our only issue is that you allow people into this amazing restaurant with T-shirts and sneakers on. A dress code must be enforced/addressed. We were actually horrified by the lack of respect that people have towards the restaurant.

I really expected better for a $55.00 steak. I had to return the first one because it was lukewarm but over salted and over cooked. I requested a rare steak. The Alaskan crab was also lukewarm. The waiter returned the steak and brought another. This time it was cooked perfectly but again way over salted and lukewarm. Ruth Chris or Morton steaks are far better. The ambiance is what this restaurant is all about. Definitely not the food.

Had a wonderful lunch with cocktails. All the staff were professional and friendly and although we were early for our reservation they were able to accommodate us and provide us with a great table that had a scenic view of the city. Our server was welcoming, attentive and made good recommendations. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Perfect place to take my friend visiting from out of state for a relaxing lunch taking in the Boston city.
