We paid for a meal as a surprise for my parents who travelled to Boston just after NY. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some reviews but my parents loved it. They said the food was fantastic & the service was second to none....More

Just imagine the most stunning 360• views of Boston while enjoying incredible food and a fabulous wine list and you have The Top Of The Hub. A long time Boston staple it should not be missed.

Great view of Boston. Seated by the windows overlooking the city. I wish I could remember the name of our waiter but he was prompt, professional and courteous. Only had dessert and after dinner drinks (both of which were done nicely-try the bread pudding) but...More

This is the classic tourist spot; known for it's location but a bit less for it's cuisine. Worth a visit, however, if in town with friends. The food is not "bad", just not exactly exciting.

Hi we went and had drinks just in the lounge , most people were dressed smart casual, I.e dark jeans and boots was about the norm. I think people dress up more to eat in the actual restaurant.
