Whether you are looking for a garden or oceanfront view, Boston has got you covered. From the luxe Four Seasons Hotel to the beautiful Seaport District, here’s a look at five of the best spots for lunch with a view.
1 Top of the Hub
The view doesn’t get much better than high atop the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center. On a clear day at The Top of the Hub, you can see everywhere from Back Bay to South Boston and beyond while lunching on a chipotle grilled chicken cobb salad or open faced grilled salmon sandwich. Come for lunch or book a table for Sunday brunch or stop by here to enjoy a drink in the lounge complete with live jazz before dinner.

2 Rowes Wharf Sea Grille
There is nothing quite like enjoying a nice seafood lunch right on the water. When it comes to fresh seafood, even better wines and an unsurpassed view, we head over to Rowes Wharf Sea Grille located inside The Boston Harbor Hotel. The restaurant has one of the best waterfront views in the city, but that isn’t the only thing that sparkles here. Chef Daniel Bruce’s menu of fresh flavors can be found in dishes like the crisp haddock filet of fish sandwich and grilled diver sea scallops.

3 Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House
Over at Liberty Wharf, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House has one of the best waterfront views where you can relax in a soft leather banquette inside or enjoy lunch al fresco on the outdoor deck. Get started with a crab cake topped with Cajun lobster sauce before moving on to the hearty Wagyu beef French dip, juicy prime cheeseburger or lobster roll served on a buttered brioche bun.

4 The Bristol
The Four Seasons Boston knows all about location. It has one of the best in Boston situated directly across the street from the Public Garden. From a seat inside The Bristol, you have a floor-to-ceiling view of the lush gardens in bloom. The best time to visit is in the spring, but diners flock here year round for their juicy steaks, signature martinis and hand-rolled pastas, not to mention their legendary Bristol burger
200 Boylston Street Boston, MA 02116
5 Outlook Kitchen and Bar
Over at Outlook Kitchen and Bar at The Envoy Hotel, the restaurant here offers an encompassing view of the city from inside the hotel while snacking on starters like Hawaiian ahi poke or tempura shrimp. We recommend the lobster PLT (made with pancetta, lettuce and tomato) or the Cubana sandwich overstuffed with smoked ham, braised pork and gruyere served on ciabatta bread with jalapeno mustard. Be sure to stop by the rooftop bar at night for a spectacular view of Boston.
