Wonderful late lunch, lobster bisque was fantastic, the shrimp were large and nicely cooked, the salmon was just right.
Desserts were a good size and delicious. We had creme brûlée, carrot cake and the Boston cream.
Not cheap but definitely worth it for a special occasion, and a nice view even without a window table.

My dear husband and I love the Top of the Hub for date nights and special occasions but this time we chose to bring our two little boys. We were hoping to give them a fine dining experience that would be a reward for table manners practice at home as well as a phenomenal view of our beloved Boston at night. Top of the Hub did not disappoint. 5 star food and wine for us and burgers and fries for the boys (though there is NOT a dedicated kids menu), top level service and kindness from staff and fellow diners. The one rub? The lousy (almost comically bad) music selections. Hilariously bad. There was some karaoke happening in our corner of the restaurant. Not. Kidding. My husband even joined in with the table next to us. Go to the Top of the Hub. Ask if Bladamir can be your server (Yes Bladamir. No, not Vladamir) I highly recommend EVERYTHING!

We went there for a gal's gathering during a restaurant week which offered a very good three course meal. In a clear day, the view from the top is unbeatable. It is a fun way to see the city you love from the high up.

Great place for a nightcap. Great views. Friendly bartenders and great patronage. Dress up some for this place. It deserves it. They may let you in with jeans on, but really try to make an effort. You will enjoy it even more.

We had intended to go up to the top of the Prudential building for the view. The cost was 18 dollars each. We saw an advert for a three course lunch at the restaurant for 29 dollars so it seemed to make more sense to enjoy a lunch with a view.
The lunch itself was very good. I went for chicken soup,beef brisket and a creme brûlée, all the food was good with the brûlée being the star of the show. All topped of a magnificent panoramic view of the city below.
