Diner Reviews
  • "Overall a good experience. Food was great, experience was great. I would Dine in Skycity again. The wait for dinner after ordering was a very long wait, and the beverage refill service was lacking. Other than that it was a great experience. "

  • "The thing I enjoyed the most was just the overall experience. From the time I pulled up for the valet parking and my car was immediately taken, going inside to find my reservation was given a token for the elevator, to being seated took no more than 15 mins. Of course the view was fantastic and the food was great. In the end it was just a great experience"

  • "Kate was our waitress and made recommendations when we are unable to decide what to order. We fully enjoyed the recommendations she made and glad we followed her recommendations. The prices are high, but well worth it. Food was phenomanal and you can't beat the scenery! Will definitely go back to the Space Needle restaurant next time we're in Seattle. "

  • "Hi, we really enjoyed the space needle and sky city very much - it was a little busy but we understand so that is ok - I have a severe shellfish allergy and want to give a special thanks to the team and the chef for remembering this and taking care so I could enjoy my delicious meal Thanks it was great!"

  • "Overall great experience. Friendly staff, very accommodating. Food was great! I recommend the seafood mac and cheese, and the salmon entree. Quality was top notch but overpriced. Still recommend the restaurant. Definitely one of a kind view and free admission to the observatory deck with restaurant reservations."

  • "We are from NY and was worried about the rain and fog. That night , the sky cleared up as we celebrated my wife's birthday at the Sky City and the view of Seattle was breathe taking. The soft playing piano man was serenading us throughout the night while we are enjoying and savoring our delicious food and dessert. Great recommendations from our server who was extremely helpful. Overall , the night was perffect and another great memorable event. Thanks"

  • "Enjoyed a lovely lunch with a first time visitor to Seattle, who was thrilled with the view and food. Salmon sandwich was delicious - salmon cooked perfectly and side dish was flavorful. Never disappoints when entertaining out of town guests."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Overall my experience was really good! We did valet and was happy to see that it was cheaper when eatting at Sky City. Our server was beyond amazing and the view was perfect! We had a window seat but there really isn't a bad seat there. The food was expensive but the Tomahawk Steak was worth it! Now for the bad....the host station! I interacted 3 times with them and each time was the same result...awful. Will I go back yes but my expectations will be lower. "

  • "What hasn't been said about the "needle"? We all know the view can't be topped. Every 47 minutes you get a full 360 degree swing around Seattle's skyline. And the food and wine list match the height. They are both top drawer. For me, the only thing that SkyCity needs to solve and overcome is the rush, rush, rush to run you out of there in 2 hours. I enjoy a 3+ hour dinner. I think I will take some of the blame though. We did the early seating for out of town guests to get some daylight viewing. I am guessing if we did the second seating we could have stayed a little longer."

  • "I took my girlfriend as a birthday surprise and the restaurant was great and the view was amazing. The food was great and all of the restaurant staff were cordial. Like I mentioned we loved the fact that it was a revolving restaurant for we were able to view downtown Seattle twice while we dined. The only thing that I would have like is if our waitress would have acknowledged my girlfriend's birthday since it was that actual day but besides that the restaurant was great."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We have been looking forward to visiting the Space Needle since we planned this trip in the fall last year. The view was amazing, as promised. The waterfront, downtown, neighborhoods, the Monorail, all to be seen as we rotated during our lunch. Food was very pricey but good quality. Our waiter was not particularly pleasant but everyone else was nice. Lots of loud and noisy kids around, but still a fun experience, once in a lifetime. Definitely worth the price for the view and the experience. "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We have heard from various people to not go to the Space Needle, just a tourist trap. Well if it is, it is a good one! We are glad we did, great food, great view, very relaxing and the famous dessert (won't give it away) was so fun!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Loved my dining experience at the Sky City Space Needle. A very memorable moment for me in this great city. Best to experience this on a non-cloudy day because you can see a 360 degree view of all the fabulous mountain ranges. Love that it costs about the same price to get a delicious lunch as it is just to do the observation deck! Worth every penny! "

  • "My family and I were here for the Sunday brunch. The food was amazing, and being able to eat while seeing all the great views that Seattle has to offer was a real treat. I would highly recommend this adventure."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The Space Needle is an iconic landmark in Seattle and we were able to visit on one of the SUNNIEST days this year! I was impressed with the ease of making reservations online, the ambiance, and the view, especially. The food was tasty, although, with all the hype, I expected more original tastes...little let down. The biggest let down was the service. Being a server in my past life, I feel some compassion for the service industry, but it seemed to me that our waiter just didn't want to be there. He needed a reminder to bring our juice and coffee, coffee refills, and anything "extra". In fact, I had to ask a random busser walking by our table for anything additional. DISAPPOINTED. Come on Space Needle, you can do better than that."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We've been eating at the Space Needle's Sky City Restaurant for more than 20 years. But, the food in the past was not great, and even sometimes awful. We kept going back for the view when we'd have out-of-town guests visiting. Then something went RIGHT with Sky City in 2013. Suddenly the food became excellent! I hope it stays this way!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Brunch menu was fabulous, service is always great, view is amazing. It was louder than the previous times we had dined here but it seemed like there were a lot more birthday parties and small children. Completely different vibe than at dinner, but still awesome! I love that someone walks around and takes your photo!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Everyone should try to make it to SkyCity when they're in Seattle. Circling around as your dine, the views of Seattle are breathtaking! Food was great, I definitely recommend brunch. All in all, it was a great dining experience!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "This is the most splendid setting on a clear day, you can see forever. We had brunch and my only complaint was that there was far too much food. I think it was good value for money even if they offered smaller portions you could manage,and I am not a small eater!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "You know how you read those travel brochures and they talk about how great the food at X restaurant is or that this is THE spot to go to if you visit X city? Then you get there and the chef just quit last week and there is construction that has just started so your view is obscured? Well, this isn't that! This dinner both food and location far exceeded any of our expectations. The service was excellent, the food divine, and the view - well breath taking still wouldn't do it justice. The only down side to this wonderful adventure is the price of the food. Special occasion for sure - not a weekly event."

  • "We visited our grand kids this weekend and made reservations for Saturday night. We packed in so many great stops this weekend and at the end if the weekend, my 9 year old grandson listed this experience as his favorite of the weekend. He loved the food and of course the fact that we were spinning. I would recommend this if you haven't done it before."

  • "We went to the Space Needle restaraunt for Lunch on 03/11/14. My husband and I had our 4 and 7 year old with us and were very pleased with our experience. Our server was attentive but gave us lots of time to visit. The food was OUTSTANDING and they have a new service where there are photographers who will take a complimentary photo, which was very nice."

  • "We were able to go to the Space Needle with out-of-town friends on one of those rare BEAUTIFUL Spring evenings. Were expecting OK (but not great) food in exchange for the view. We were surprised! The food and service lived up to the view. Had a wonderful dinner experience."

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful meal at the Space Needle Restaurant this week. I had the Wild Salmon and my husband had fish and chips. We both started with a bowl of the split pea and ham soup. The soup was delicious. It arrived quickly and we ate it with the complimentary bread. My salmon was perfectly cooked and the presentation was beautiful on top of some greens and potatoes. My husband's fish and chips were also perfectly cooked and delicious. The restaurant rotated 360 degrees during our meal, so we were able to enjoy the gorgeous view while we were eating. Our server was attentive, but not invasive. She answered questions about buildings we could not identify. Overall, it was an outstanding meal and experience."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "There were two couples who met in Seattle for a once a year get together. We loved the ambiance, views and service. The salmon was done to perfection. Other comments regarding food ranged from okay to good. We all considered the total package as worth the money. We would do it again for a special occasion."

  • "The food was ok but it was the view that made the experience worth the cost. The menu needs work. Not much to choose from & very expensive. Service was fine but not exceptional like u would expect from the top"

  • "For starters the bread basket was skimpy. Further more the beard served was not very good it was flabby and soft almost like it came out of refrigeration. My 57 dollar steak was ok at best. It was cooked good but still way over priced for what it was. There are a lot better meals in the area for a fraction of the price."

  • "I took my mom here for lunch and we had a great time. The food was better than I expected, though it was of course expensive. We were lucky and went on a sunny day - the views were spectacular! Our server was wonderful! She told us to feel free to ask questions about what we were seeing - we asked several, and she always had a great answer. There were more children there than I expected, but it was Spring Break, so maybe that was unusual. It got pretty loud - if you are looking for a quiet meal dinner might be a better option. Overall a great experience."

  • "Seeing the entire city from one viewpoint and having a great meal at the same time, made it worth the visit to the Space Needle besides just the observation deck. Highly recommend!"
