A little pricey, but worth it considering the view and elegance. The staff was more than polite and helpful and the dinner was delicious and served in a decent sized portion. I would definitely like to return again at night time to see lights lit up all over the city since I've only been during the day. This restaurant would... More

The food was average and so was the wait staff. It was pretty pricey for the quality meal. The atmosphere was a little cramped and loud, but the bathroom was clean. The view was amazing and they did personalize your meals.

My friend and I had dinner here on our recent visit to Boston. It is not cheap, but we enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is on the 52nd floor of the Prudential building. Views are amazing. We got a window table, which was nice. Noise levels were low and the waiter who served us was attentive and suggested some good... More

A fine piano restaurant - bar! Elegant, cosy with majestic view! Fine dishes , freshly made cocktails and tasty deserts! The waitresses were more than polite and the decoration makes you travel through time, feeling at some point that you will meet Frank Sinatra in person! Another point I would like to mention is the music in the background.. an... More

We had brunch at the Top of the Hub this past Sunday and the food was very good. Not the typical Sunday Brunch that most people think of as it is not a buffet style with carving stations, omelet station, fresh fruit, etc. You order one appetizer, one entrée and one dessert from a very limited menu. Also coffee, tea... More

We arrived a bit before our reservations but were seated right away. Our window seat gave us an amazing view during sunset. Our waiter, Gerard, made the three generation (mother-daughter-daughter) birthday celebration extra special. The food was delicious!

This place is obviously known for the view so instead of dropping big bucks on dinner and Beantown night lights, get a complete three course lunch with a spectacular long distance view of the city and peaks beyond. Three of us ate all three courses for under a hundred; the food quality was outstanding right to the creme brûlée at... More

Expensive food and mediocre service but in an incredible atmosphere. We will not necessarily return to Top of the Hub but will most likely return to the Skywalk. This is a beautiful spot to have a meal for sure - appetizers and/or dessert on a cold day is super cozy and relaxing. A lobster roll for $25 is "over the... More

Wonderful birthday dinner at Top of the Hub. The service is exceptional, and the food prepared with distinction. I had the seared salmon, which was cooked perfectly. My dining guests (2) had the strip steak medium rare, and it was prepared exactly the way a medium rare steak should be..Perfect! The staff made a special effort to assure my daughter's... More

To start off with complete honesty, what really brings people to the Top of the Hub is the view. The views are amazing, especially at night. Don't be afraid to state that you want/will wait for a table by the window, the staff won't be surprised by this request. The food was good, from appetizers to entrees to dessert. The... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
