Closed the two days of our stay. Only option was a windowless cafe with crappy atmosphere, and the bar. If I'm going to pay premium prices for not so spectacular food, I would at least like to enjoy it in a nice setting. My daughter and I are on our annual winter vacation between holidays, and our stay at the... More

Yes the view was excellent, but the service and the food was not worthy of the view. The limited menu and service personnel made the effort to see the view, or experience the spinning, a complete waste of my time and money. Highlight: The pairing of fried banana peppers with the Calamari, was inspirational.

I've been wanting to dine here for 6 years. Earlier tonight (Friday December 19), my wife and I finally got to do that. Walking in the front doors, you have to take the escalator to the lobby level, then take the elevator to the 14th floor. From there, take elevator #3 up to the Skydome Lounge. Once you step out,...

As its name suggests the Sky Dome gives the most amazing view of DC. My son commented "it's like we are in the opening credits for House of Cards!". We both didn't realise the restaurant was revolving, until my son noticed the bar's position had changed completely from where it was when we walked in! We found the air-conditioning in... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are fortunate to have the most stunning view of the nation's capital that can be found. The slow moving floor does surprise people who are unaware it revolves as it is not always easily noticeable. I am sorry that you found the Skydome to be chilly and that your original fries were cold,... More

Didn't feel like venturing out of the hotel. View is great! But seats by the windows were chilly. Food was decent. Entrees are a bit pricy and there wasn't too much selection. Probably best to go for drinks and apps.

Another reviewer stated it very well about this restaurant..."5 for the view, 3 for the food". Our dinner food was a little cool, the soup was barely warm and I am not sure what the gravy was made of...the service staff was attentive and pleasant. The view on the other hand is exceptional, particularly the Washington Monument and the US... More

The reason to eat here is the view, which is excellent. Service was good. The food was average--nothing bad, but not exceptional either. I can echo other TAs' observations about the temperature being cool--the windows are all lined by vents blowing nonwarm air, so wear a sweater!

This is a very nice restaurant. The seating area revolves giving a constantly changing, spectacular fiew of the city. The Washington Monument is the focal point, of course. The staff were great and the service was very good. A little pricey so we didn't eat there every night.

I don't remember what I ate or drank. Who cares. Like most places with a view or location this great, the food and drink weren't memorable, but the views. Wow. Even as a local, I still love it.
