Fab views

Have visited a similar but larger establishment in New York. Although not in the same league as that one, the skydome does what it says on the tin and revolves slowly to give you the best possible views of DC, The Pentagon and Reagan Airport. Unlike others, I did not find the prices over the top... read more

You must check this out if you're in the area. The view at sunset and dusk is amazing. You can see all the memorials, airport, pentagon, etc. The food was good and I liked that it was casual. Big screen TVs on the ceiling. Love how the floor rotates.

The revolving floor does make the Skydome experience a unique one. Our patrons love how they can remain seated and still see all of the attractions and sites due to the revolving... More

I expected a revolving restaurant to charge a premium for the view, and to have food closer to "average". We were delighted to be wrong! The food was absolutely spectacular!! The service was pretty good, and the view would have been stunning on a less dreary day (nothing they can do about this obviously!) I had the Grilled Pork Chop,... More

I make it a point to stop in and have A happy hour or two while visiting DC, the view is spectacular and the staff is very attentive. A little bit of a splurge but it's just so worth it. The spinning just takes it over the top, it's my favorite part of visiting DC after a full day of... More

So, the drinks were expensive ($14 for one glass of wine). The view was amazing and the environment pleasant. So, visit drink one or two glasses and then have water!

My food was well prepared. I had a steak, medium and it was seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. I didn't hang around as I had been traveling all day and just wanted to eat and go to bed. I would recommend.

Great View and not so good service and very unappreciative of large groups. We arrived at 8pm for a birthday party I was hosting for 10 people. We picked the location because of the view. The place was maybe 30-40% full. $300 later into the evening, I asked the manager, Hailu, if they would comp an $8 small cake. He... More
