What an experience!

This amazing restaurant rotates slowly while you enjoy the view and your meal. The food was fabulous, and the service was top rated! I can't say enough good about this place.... you just need to experience it.

We ordered the steak with frittes. The steak was okay but not spectacular ($68) and the frittes were salty beyond belief. The ride to the top is included in the meal price so there is some value there. Total bill with wine (less tip) was $ 240.00 for two people. The view from the top is spectacular but I didn't...

We went at about 4 pm for the happy hour time this way we could see the city in the daylight and we hung around until it got dark thus seeing it in both of it's glories. Spectacular views of the city. The food was excellent. Just little appy platters except the burger which was very large.

The restaurant have the best, without any doubts, view in Seattle. The view makes the meal be a fantastic experience in all, but you should never forget that a restaurants main purpuose is not a fantastic view but rather a taste experience. This is where it ends. Flat taste, overprized and no heart or soul in the spicing. I would... More

For the exorbitant prices charged, you would expect a decent meal, but this was one of the worst values and worst meals I have ever had. Soggy fried fish, weak soup, soggy side dish... poor service. Skip the restaurant and go straight to the observation deck - and save $100 or more!!

A ticket to the observation desk costs about $25, and that price is included if you eat at Sky City. The cheapest entree costs around $42, appetizers are $10+, drinks and desserts are about $10. Again, subtract $25 from your total to reveal the food price. I recommend going to the observation deck any time, any day. There are 42"... More

Food expensive as you would imagine but if you spend at least $25 each, you go up to the space needle for free. Bacon cheeseburger good. View much better from restaurant than from viewing area above. Restaurant very peaceful.

Very good food, absolutely delicious in fact, and some of the best views in the city. The meals can be a very pricey, but given the ambiance, the views, the fact that you are also given admittance to the sky deck, and the taste of the food itself, I'd say that it's worth it. They don't have a vegetarian-friendly menu,... More

Reservation was 4:30PM on a Sunday after theater, perfect time for sunset on 7 Feb. Checked in at the back of the Space Needle for reservation card to take elevator to the top. If you are not eating in the restaurant, this costs $22 a head (senior $19), so consider that in the price of the dinner. Spent 15 minutes... More
