  • The location is one of the best in Boston, amazing views of the city from the 50th-something floor. The food was OK, certainly not proportionate to the restaurant's level. 
  • Went for lunch on a Friday. Made reservations the day before but wouldn't t have needed them, as we arrived at noon to leave time to get to a 1:30 BSO concert and it was nearly empty. Courteous staff,...  read more »
  • Without reservations, but arrived early in evening and was able to score a table at the window. Service was good, food was good, plus they did not rush us...we were able to enjoy the view from twiligh...  read more »
  • Excellent food, excellent service, and excellent views. One of the best views in the whole city is right here while you dine and drink fine wines. Beautiful floor to ceiling windows and chic, modern design restaurant. The restaurant does not just get by on their looks either, the food is top notch as well and prepared by their high-end chef whom was hired from Italy. Top of the Hub is an excellent choice for any special night out, fine dining experience, professional dinner, or just any dinner (nice + clean attire). Top of the Hub has a nice bar as well for those looking to enjoy a social drink after work.
  • Cool atmosphere. Very pricy food albeit fairly tasty and well prepared. Good view. Overall a nice experience but would not go frequently.
  • The food+wine list and the views on Boston and the staff are awesome. Not cheap, but well worth the money. Recommended.
  • Today is 8/31/2016. Earlier tonight, a bit after 9:00pm, after we finished Skywalk Observatory (at 50th floor of Prudential building), we simply went up to 52th floor and wanted to have dinner at Top of the Hub, the restaurant... It was me, my husband and our two boys, 9 and 11. When I was approaching the front desk, a young man in his suit behind the desk, simply told me, "I am sorry, but we do not accept athletic apparel"... I wish I could upload a photo here, but here is what I was wearing: black snuggle short sleeve top from Nordstrom, black leggings, sneakers, and purple pink tennis skirt from Adidas (the Adidas logo is on it), and a snuggle black short sleeve top. This is my normal daily look. I wear this to drop my kids to school and/or bring them to their activities. I receive a lot of compliments, since it makes me look slimmer and cute. Sure, I was wearing a tennis skirt outside my legging. I was not wearing basketball shots or bare leg in tennis skirt. And, a big AND … there was no sign outside the restaurant door or anywhere in my eyesight while I was approaching the front desk about DRESS CODE. I found it ironic that two men got accepted after we got kicked out. And they were wearing less dressy sneakers than mine and super casual summer short sleeve top and very casual shots. I am mature enough to not to let things like this bother me… the only reason that I am posting this review is that… it made my 9 year old boy cry (he was hungry and looking forward for food) …
  • Waitress is nice. However, kitchen is really unorganized. I didnt have my plate and forks for 20 minutes and I asked for 5 times. A waitor brought up the soup but didnt give spoon. Brought me the wrong main dish too. Taste of food is below average. Affordable price for the food at this location. The chefs didn't even care the presentation of the food. Lobster bisque is too salty. Pasta is too oily. I can make better pasta than it. I don't think it's overpriced because what we paid for is the view of Boston. The one star is for the view.
