  • "Very good food, great views. Reservations a must. No admission charge to the space needle if you have a dining reservation. Makes this a good buy.Our"

  • "I understand they have a new chef and he/she didn't dissapoint. Amazing views and delicious food. Expensive but you don't have to waste $20pp on the trip to the top because the view is better from the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The food is good, the service is excellent. Even though it was very busy day, they were able to accommodate us by a window seat, we had to wait a little longer but it was worth the wait to be able to see the city in all its splendor. Our out of town visitors were amazed!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This was the coolest restaraunt I've ever been to, hands down. The view and the food were both incredible. Seeing the sights of Seattle from over 500 feet in the air while enjoying a delicious meal was worth the price. Our waitress was extremely polite and knowledgeable about the menu AND the buildings we were gazing down upon, which was super helpful for us, being tourists and all. I would most definitely recommend SkyCity to anyone and everyone! Personally, I think it would make a very romantic/elegant date night location. SkyCity is spectacular!"

  • "Made a reservation for 2 but was unable to acquire a babysitter. The 3 of us went and the staff made it like we made a reservation for 3 anyway. Sat at a table next to the glass was better than I expected. Service was professional and friendly with jaw dropping views. One of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen."

    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The food was very good, perhaps a bit on the pricey side for the quality, but let's face it: you are paying for the magnificent city views and the fact that you are eating atop the Space Needle. It's worth it for the experience."

  • "Awweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerssoooo ommmmmmmmmeeeeee!!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I was told this restaurant was great but it wasn't when we got there is so squishy and close to other tables someone kept putting their butt in my face talking to people at another table. I went without a drink most of the meal and when I got my refill my drink was watered down. The for was not good either the greens were hard to chew and tasted bad, the rest just as bad. The Bill was 100 and I would have rather went to another place that has better food and pay 75."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The view from the dining room is so awesome. We love the rotation of the restaraunt and the spectacular view. The price of the food is way to expensive. I will not return to dine there, very overpriced. The food was not up to standard as far as taste. There should be more selection with better pricing. Your average family can not afford to eat there."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Fantastic view. Food better than expected for a mass volume tourist attraction"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We are from the NW and have been to the SN for food and drink before over the years. We took a couple of friends visiting from the UK and the experience was delightful. It was a gorgeous afternoon and sunset, which helped, but the valet service, quick check-in (with reservations), attentive service, nice wine selection, and excellent food all made for a wonderful time. It had been awhile since we had been up there, but next time we are in Seattle, it is definitely on our list to return to."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "While the food is on the pricey side, I would completely recommend doing lunch (be sure to make reservations ahead) as opposed to just paying for the observation deck. You get more for your money that way plus a photo that you can access for free. Such a beautiful view of Seattle, I would definitely recommend doing it at least once!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "A little expensive but worth avery penny just for the views. The food was delicious and well served"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "A great first stop on a visit to Seattle. The views are beautiful and the food is very good. The prices are what you would expect for this type of attraction. We made reservations months in advance and were seated right on time. We could not have had a more enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "LOVED THE RESTAURANT AND THE VIEW, HOWEVER THE COST OF LUNCH WAS TOO MUCH! WOULD LIKE TO SEE LOWER PRICES ON THE MENU!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Definite must do in Seattle. Be prepared to spend about $50 per person, at lunchtime, but totally worth it."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Once in a lifetime experience. It was a special occasion or we would not have spent that much money on a fancy lunch menu. The food was overpriced and not anything that spectacular. My steak was full of fat."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "I have been visiting Seattle for over 10 years and just moved here one year ago. I had friends visiting from out of town and wanted to do something special with them. This was exactly what I had wanted, great food and a great view, combined to make a fabulous Seattle experience. I will absolutely recommend this to others. In fact, I will likely be back soon with my next set of summertime visitors!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • " I love having dinner at the Space Needle. We live in Olympia, and whenever we have out of town guests, we eat here. Some of my local friends think it's a tourist trap, which I think is unfortunate. It's touristy, sure~ but it's also gorgeous views, fantastic food and just plain fun. The food is often locally sourced and organic, and creative with plenty of options. Don't miss the Orbiter dessert!! It is memorable and you'll want your camera handy when it arrives at the table :) We also find that the service is fantastic here. Very expensive, yes, but you are also paying entry for the viewing deck along with your dinner. It's worth it!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The view was second to none. The service was just as good as the view. Friendly and funny waiter, but very knowledgeable and professional. Try to go at sunset. That was pretty spectacular. We wil definitely be back. Perfect for our special occasion!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Not only was the food amazingand the view breathtaking, but our waiter was so friendly, helpful, and informative providing history and suggestions for us about the menu. We had great service and our waiter made the overall experience that much more enjoyable"

  • "The restaurant staff were very helpful and informative which made our experience very enjoyable. Restrooms are not convenient for elderly persons and are difficult to get to."

  • "We enjoyed our experience at SkyCity Restaurant, most beautiful view and great service. Try the ice cream for dessert was 'smokin'!! with that dry ice!"

  • "Amazing view of Puget Sound and Seattle as there were no clouds. The food was great though expensive. Great wine list. Excellent service. Commit to a unique experience and you will be rewarded."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food was absolutely delicious. Nice variety and very filling. A bit pricey, but worth the scenic view."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I was very impressed with guest services, the waiter and the valets. All catered to our needs and were always around when needed. After 2 weeks of waiting for a reservation the dining experience was well worth it, not to mention the breathtaking view at sunset."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We had a lot if fun and couldn't believe how fast the time went. The kids found the 3d apps really fun."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "If you are going to pay to up to the observatory, it is worth paying more to have a meal at the restaurant, while soaking up the view! We went up before the sunset and was able to see the city when it was light and then turned dusk and then in the evening. The lunar ice cream was good ice cream and fun to watch when water was poured into the bowl. I really can't say enough good things about our visit there (and I am extremely picky in regards to customer service). We did go up to the observatory afterwards (which is included in the price), but after having such an awesome view in the restaurant, viewing Seattle through viewing bars was not the same."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "A great place to take out of town visitors. Only 2x the price of a simple observation deck ticket, brunch is worth the price ($50/person for three courses). Food leaves much to be desired. Breakfast potatoes were obviously cooked hours before they were served off the steam table. Scramble lacked flavor & seasoning, and everything on the menu was VERY calorie-rich. Be sure to arrive HUNGRY and then plan to eat nothing but spinach for the rest of the day! You'll feel a little bogged down by all the butter."

  • "Can't visit Seattle without partaking of the food at the restaurant atop the Needle."

  • "Took my brother here from out of town, he loved it, appropriate portion sizes, slightly more expensive but they have good quality. You are really paying for the view."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "You just have to see Seattle from the Needle and to top that the food is wonderful. My husband and I had the Salmon, it was Washington salmon, and it was just perfect. We have visited this restaurant twice while in Seattle, taking friends with us who are locals but rarely go. Both times their comment was, " We have to come more often!" You can't miss with this restaurant but make those reservations early!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "After spending the 4th of July weekend, this was our last dinner in Seattle, and it didn't disappoint. Ease of Valet, to checking in and taking elevator up and being seated was reasonably smooth. The entire staff was friendly and knowledgable. We didn't feel rushed and truly enjoyed our dinner. I would recommend this as a must for any visitor or local who has visitors for at least one night. It can be pricey, but you pay for the dramatic 360 views and the food doesn't really disappoint either."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This restaurant was at the top of our list while visiting Seattle. My 17 yr old son and I were in Seattle to visit my niece, and I thought this was the perfect location to celebrate his 18th birthday. The server (Kara?) was very attentive but not overly so. The view simply cannot be described, you have to be there. Our food was excellent and delivered in a timely manner. Overall, a very nice evening!"
