I debated a long time whether to eat here, but decided it would be romantic with the view and I would chance the food. It is expensive and this average food (I had the King Salmon) was not worth the price. It was the only disappointing meal I had on this trip. Just visit the needle for your view and... More

Took our granddaughter for lunch for her 11th birthday. Great server ( Karen). And great food. I had salmon and it was perfectly cooked. We also had the mussel appetizer and if you like mussels, you will love it. Ice cream with the dry ice presentation was a hit with the birthday girl but it really is just ice cream... More

It's hard not to go to the top of the Space Needle if you've never been, but it's a shame that the price is so steep. Despite not being able to see the mountains in the distance, the night view was impressive.

The food was pretty good. My $35 salad (main course) would have been about $25-30 at most upscale restaurants, though. The service was very good, but the waiter couldn't afford to exercise subtly as the place was crowded and loud. I don't think you can expect a subtle, private, romantic dining experience unless, perhaps, you're having dinner and the place... More

We timed our reservations to take advantage of the sunset. It was a clear evening and it was a spectacular view. We had a seat right by the window. The service was excellent and the food very good. Yes, it was expensive but how often do you get a chance to dine with a rotating view of the city and... More

This was one of the restaurants I booked in advance of my trip. However I actually ate there twice because I joined a few friends there for lunch a few days before my dinner reservation. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful, particularly Angie who served me when I had dinner on the Sunday evening. I wanted to... More

The door staff was amazing! Brittany and Bri accommodated our anniversary request for a window seat at the last minute! The view was breathtaking as well as awe inspiring. Our server was nice and the food was quite tasty, but completely overpriced. I guess you literally pay for the view and the spinning. if there were two goat cheese fritters... More

Decided to dine at Sky City on impulse during our visit to the space needle viewing gallery. Waiting time was 45mins for a non-window seat without reservation. The rotating restaurant provided 360 views of the Seattle skyline at sunset, albeit a little bumpy which made the experience mildly nauseating. Service standards were above par but not exemplary. Entrée took 40mins... More

Don't waste your time with the the dinner. Go to the top to see the sights only. Grab a coffee and a snack and enjoy the sites. Beyond that, the food it decent but completely over-priced considering Seattle has so, so much to offer!! My husband and I were having a celebratory dinner as it was the last night of... More
