Would highly recommend this place to anyone for the special night.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's the needleYou go for the view, but the food's pretty good too. Service was awesome for us all around. Just avoid the chocolatey dessert - basically pudding + cherries.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ViewThis was our first time in Seattle and we really enjoyed the SkyCity Restaurant. The food was good and the menu was interesting. I would recommend.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe needleA great experience. Such views. A great waitress.

Everything is superb!!!! But they forgot about my bday - I mentioned it when I made the reservation hahahaha ....... Will come back anytime with friends ....6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Evening and MealAs a Native Seattlite, when tourist come to visit you have to deice on the perfect spot and Sky City at the Space Needle is it. Our meal was fantastic, and the view is always the best. Amanda our server did a great Job.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI thought tourist trap-foodI thought tourist trap-food will be so-so. It was the best meal with had in Seattle and we went to all the great restaurants.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSuprisingly Kid FriendlyWe took our 5 year old to saturday brunch to celebrate preschool graduation. He was greeted with crayons and a kid's menu. Service team was friendly, accomodating, and, service was seamless and timely so our visit went smoothly. Good selection on kids menu, $15 for most items. Brunch for adults was $45 and included starter, main course, and dessert as well as juice and a bread basket. Delicious, especially my prime rib! Notes, coins from different countries, and other treasures graced the window rail, and looking to see what would turn up next as our table revolved around the restaurant really captivated our son. Diners are free to visit observation deck. Stationary binoculars are there. Elevator descent is quick and may startle some kids.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and view (at a price)Enjoyed our experience there overall. It was a nice birthday meal! The my steak was a bit over cooked and the potatoes were only warm. Came back undercooked but the potatoes were hot. Left over steak will be perfect tomorrow when I re-warm it!
Still a great place to eat.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceIf you are visiting Seattle, or even if you live there and haven't made it up to the Space Needle, eating at SkyCity is well worth the price. Since you are going to have to pay 20 bucks to get up to the observation deck anyway, why not just go have dinner instead? The prices may be higher than most are used to, but when you factor in the cost of just visiting the observation deck, you really aren't paying that much more for delicious food in a fantastic landmark location. I enjoyed the special they had that day, seafood paella. It was very tasty. We had an entire 360 degree view of the city during dinner, and afterwards visited the regular observation deck for some more photos.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at the needleGreat food, great service, not the cheapest place in town but the view is amazing.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationSpecial thanks to our server, Johnny. He made our birthday celebration very special. The food was excellent and the kitchen was flexible on substitutions and special requests. We are locals so it is always interesting to see all the international visitors.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMView labelsFabulous view but wish we had had a legend telling us what we were seeing5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Out of TownersVisiting Seattle from California, and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Space Needle. The food was delicious, and of course the view was awesome! Every time we visit Seattle we have dinner at SkyCity.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchWe had a great time having brunch here! Food was great and the view second to none!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at the space needleIt was my lady's birthday as we flew from the east coast to see some sights. When we were seated the first waitress was not so impressive, She went to 3 other tables twice before she ever did anything with us. Yeah we waited quite a bit.... The manager came over and it went from there we received another waitress which was great, she helped make the night, along with the manager. Of course the scene was great best view of the Seattle city and skyline.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view!This is a very memorable experience! The menu is limited, but the food is great! Definitely worth the wait for a window seat to see the fun things that circle around as the restaurant rotates. Must do activity for any one time visits to Seattle!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had Saturday brunch there.We had Saturday brunch there. The view was fantastic, particularly during a sunshine day.
Food was not that great, but still good, we ordered salmon and prime rib for main course. The prime rib came as a big portion, we didn't finish it, but when we ask to take the rest to go, the waiter didn't put the sauce together with it even we asked for a new sauce.
The experience was still good, may come again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good and attentiveReally good and attentive service. Have now been here for dinner, brunch and lunch and has been delicious every time. Highly recommended to friends and family and I look forward to my next chance to go again. Slightly pricy but the fact that cost includes the Space Needle observatory tour makes the cost very reasonable.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I chose SkyCityMy wife and I chose SkyCity Restaurant for our "monthly date night" without our kiddo. We have lived in Seattle now for almost 3 years and had never gone to the restaurant or observation deck at the Space Needle; so we decided it was time. The check-in process was easy, the view was great (especially on a clear evening) and the staff was wonderfully helpful and courteous. SkyCity is definitely a special occasion restaurant, but did not have a "stuffy" feel to it.
The food was amazing and the wine list was great with a nice selection of local, domestic and international choices. I definitely recommend SkyCity to Seattle visitors and locals alike!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing view, great food....Amazing view! We saw all of Seattle from our dinner table. There was a photographer that took our picture, and it was free to email the picture to our email address or facebook account.
I had the 12oz NY Strip, it was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The grilled tomato with feta cheese was a perfect side, but the fries were not that great. The waiter was very informative of the Seattle area, and the restaurant very appropriately serves Starbucks coffee.
Definitely a must do if you are in the Seattle area! It's reservation only, and they fill up quickly!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fails to deliver awesomeNever fails to deliver awesome service and awesome food4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful spot for celebratingWonderful spot for celebrating a special occasion, such an our anniversary. Downside is the noise. We were surprised by the number of loud children in our area, given the prices and adult-oriented menu. The food is very good, but pricey.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA must visit.Unbelievable food, service, and ambiance. A must for anyone visiting the city who wants an outstanding meal with an outstanding view and unbelieable martinis.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur trip to Seattle was madeOur trip to Seattle was made that much more enjoyable by our luncheon visit to the SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle on April 18. The view from the top on a clear day is absolutely awesome. The menu and wine list were quite acceptable and we enjoyed our food and service as much as the beautiful view. However, with only one elevator, waiting to go back down requires a somewhat lengthy wait at times. Overall, a nice experience. Thanks.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall the service and foodOverall the service and food were wonderful. They called us ahead and arranged for a balloon decoration and sparkling cider for a 13th birthday. The only negative was that the kid menu was really for kids in elementary school. There was not a menu selection that was appropriate for an older kid. The steak for him was great, but we had to have the wine sauce removed as it was not something that tasted good to a kid. For adults, the food was spectacular. Especially loved the sweet potato and crab cake starters. We would go there again for a celebration. We will just ask more questions if we bring a youth with us to eat.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood as good as the view.Expensive, but the perfect place to go with family from out o town. Someone must get the Orbiter dessert, great fun. Bring your camera.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWas here years ago and thoughtWas here years ago and thought the food was just ok, this time the food and service was fantastic!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to seeThis is a great place to see all of Seattle. It is a very romantic place to celebrate a special occassion. The food is nicely presented and it looks high end for the prices. It is defintely a place to visit if you are in Seattle and want to experience a touristy type place with good food options.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting from San DiegoExceptional service, great food ...

The view is amazing and the food is great! I definitely recommend signing up for the celebration club so that you can get a good deal for birthdays and anniversaries.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went In on a Saturday forWe went In on a Saturday for a 2:15 reservation. When handed the menu we thought we had the wrong one, it was mainly breakfast items. I would of expected at 2:15 on a weekend we would of seen more salads and sandwiches even burgers... We did settle for the one chicken main dish. It's three courses, first course we had a Caesar salad, we took off the anchovy. Salad was good, crisp and tasty, chicken was good, not dry. And cheesecake was great. Service stared out good but increasingly got slow as food arrived I had to ask for tea refills twice.and asked for no anchovy on salad but it was on there he rarely came by-. Other than that you get enough food to fill you up and the view on a blue sky day was fabulous3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for special occasionsScene is great, food a little hit or miss. I had the tuna and it was excellent, but the croquette sides & pistou were very bland. My wife had the pork chop and while the hash and sauce were great, the pork was overdone and tough. Skip the "gnocchi" appetizer - the mushrooms and blueberry sauce were great but the gnocchi themselves were underseasoned and nondescript. Service, however, was excellent.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI wonderful way to have aI wonderful way to have a very relaxed meal with a wonderful 360 degree fantistic view.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMvery nice dinner at the veryvery nice dinner at the very nice spot of Seattle.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful EveningSky City was a wonderful choice for an evening celebration while on vacation. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the view and the food. The price was a little overwhelming but expected. Great for a one in a while visit.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI love great food!I just sold my business of 15 years, what better way to celebrate with the new owner. Enjoying the view and the atmosphere. We won't forget this one.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceIf you come to Seattle, you have to eat at the Skyview at least once - fabulous dining experience. We went for dinner and the view was excellent as was our waiter John. Food was flavorful and tastefully presented. Of course, the pricetag is high, but both the food, the ambiance and the service make it all worthwhile. You won't be disappointed.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNot too bad.Food is Ok but the best part is the view and the setting. the Ambiance was just outstanding. Food could be better but overall thought it was pretty darn good.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
