You have a very good view of Boston from here. I was there in the evening, and it was great to see all of Boston fully lightened.

The food was delicious and the view was absolutely stunning. Went for the 3 course prix fixe menu with wine pairing. Enjoyed all the food and wine. The cocktails were also well worth trying.

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, good waiter, always there to do his job promptly, but not intrusive. Wife and I both had Prix Fix lunch. Pork... 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 twilight to dark.

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.
