Our meal was delicious, opted for a pre-fixed 5 course meal. Perfect sized portions, everything was cooked perfectly. Our server was one of the best we’ve ever had. Wish I could remember his name... beautiful view and a great night. Will come back for lunch with the kids soon.

Beautiful view. Worth dining here at least once for the experience. The food, however, is very mediocre for the price. Fairly basic, limited options. Our food was mundane and portions were small. We did have great service, though.

This was great for a wedding aniversary after a day the ISG museum. Good public transportation and taxi service. Great view on a crystal clear night. Food was pretty good, given the price (you are paying for the view). Caesar salad had hardly any parm cheeze, duck breast meat was under cooked. Presentation of everything was very good and the staff was attentive. Very little wait for water efills, drinks etc. Wine list is excellent, but again, pretty high mark-up. Had the 724 Croze-Herm. at a reasonable price. In all a very enjoyable evening.

We went for Christmas eve brunch. Food was fine- it’s all about the view which is gorgeous. For the prices I hoped for better service. Took15 minutes to come to table, another15 for drinks to arrive etc. way too long between courses especially as we had 3 kids in our group. Since they have a lesser price for children, that to me implies that they would have a few child friendly options but there were not.

What an amazing experience! Professional staff from the moment we stepped off the elevator. A live jazz band played in the background as we were quickly sat at a beautiful table for two looking out at a Christmas lit Boston view. Our waiter was very familiar with the menu and gave us some wonderful recommendations. Although the lobster sounded amazing, we opted for a perfectly cooked medium filet mignon and medium rare lamb. They were both spot on! Although we got the asparagus and au grautin potatoes, the potatoes would have been plenty. They were cheesy and had a wonderful garlic flavor as well. Full from our amazing meal, we had to pass on dessert. Maybe next time! We are looking forward to returning for another fabulous night.

Absolutely the best birdseye view of Boston!
The staff was professional and very accommodating when we asked to move to a different table away from two noisy groups. The food was good but somewhat overpriced but I guess we’re also paying for the view. The live music is a wonderful touch.

I thought overall the experience was great and food was amazing. I was upset however I booked this in advanced on the computer for a date and called/left numerous messages days in advanced to make sure I could get a window seat. I hope they can make it up to me because other than that it was a great experience.

Restaurant was loud but a table by the window is an unbeatable view. Service was quite poor. Water was a bit abrupt and not that attentive. We had to ask for bread. No one took the time to explain the food or wine when each course of the tasking menu was delivered.

The food and the view were amazing!
Food: The stuffed lobster and lobster bisque are a must have. We went there to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and they gave us a free chocolate cake and ice cream with candles which was really nice of them.
Drinks: The champagne recommendations from our server were perfect with our meal.
View: Make sure you go during the day. The city looks beautiful.

Up and down experience. Had brunch; 4 course prix fix. First two courses were quite good. Third course (eggs Benedict) for two diners was a mess. Very cold and over cooked poached egg. Waitress saw how it looked and had it sent back. Second dish was actually worse than the first. Manager came over and offered to comp those two meals. Third try; one meal was solid, the other still cold and very over-poached. But at that point we’d sort of had enough. Fourth course was good though. Spectacular view, decent service, and they tried to do the right thing comping us. So I still recommend it and hope we just had bad luck.
