If you do nothing else, go here! Even though it is expensive, it is very well run. And for those of you with fear of heights - the elevator won't even phase you. The view is AWESOME.

The Space Needle is a must see in Seattle, unless you don't like heights and then it is a I slightly recommend you go. I myself am not a huge fan of heights, but after a few minutes you get caught up in everything they have to offer. I could see Mount Rainier and Mount Baker which was really cool.... More

Considering the cost to get up to the deck you may as well spend the extra 20 bucks because your gonna need to eat a meal any way. Above all that the food was as good as any fine restaraunt I have been to. They had a wide variety of fresh seafood. Of course the best part of the meal... More

My husband and I visited the Space Needle Restaurant for the second time on a recent trip to Seattle. We entertained 2 Seattle "locals" as well. Everyone agreed that the meal coupled with spectacular views and an extremely attentive and friendly staff was marvelous. I would encourage anyone visiting the Seattle area to go! I would encourage anyone living in... More

Sharing a meal while rotating and taking in the amazing views, what's not to like? Add a beautiful bottle of Eroica Riesling, and the experience was even better. Great 3 course brunch/lunch with exceptional service. This is a unique and wonderful Seattle treat!

There are certainly taller buildings in Seattle these days, but the Space Needle still has great views, and a nice layout at the top. Well worth the admission price, especially if you pair it with the Chihuly Museum next door - which you should, as the Chihuly is outstanding. Afterwards, have a refreshing drink at the Sports Bar just across... More

Lived in Seattle for one year, and I've brought my out of town guests here four times. Brunch and dinner have excellent food. It's expensive but the food and view are great. That said, if it's foggy with low visibility you might not be able to see ANYTHING. So if you don't see the top of the space needle, you... More

The dine was on the Space Needle so the atmosphere was awesome. Me and some coworkers made reservations, and thankly they still had them with the ample amount of people waiting to get in. And the food was great, but view was amazing!!!

My husband made reservations for us to have dinner at Sky City while we were in Seattle over night. I do want to say that it is very pricey so I wouldn't recommend as a family activity unless you have some extra money to drop. You do get admission to the observatory level so you an visit after you meal.... More

Obviously the view is phenomenal, its unfortunate the food and service don't match it. Price point is on the high end with limited menu selections. The restaurant does spin, it didn't bother me but it did my adult daughters. I'd skip the restaurant and just do the observation level.
