If you go to Seattle, you HAVE to go up the Space Needle!

Third time in Seattle. Third trip to the Space Needle. The last two times we have been we purchased the night and day ticket. Go up early in the morning to avoid large queues. Night visit to watch the sun set over Seattle is wonderful.

We did it because we felt like we would be missing out if we didn't. I can say I'm glad we went to the top but I won't go again. The elevator is so fast, we felt ill. The view is spectacular and the gift shop is nice.

This is a "MUST" if in Seattle! The experience of the 360 degree view while dining is wonderful. The food was very GOOD, but not excellent.

My family and I enjoyed a dinner at the Space Needle the night before our Alaska cruise in June 2015. QUICK NOTE ***** WE MADE OUR RESERVATIONS 3 MONTHS AHEAD OF TIME....YOU MUST DO THIS***** We enjoyed that the reservation included a complimentary pass to the look out. We "tourist-ed" up and took tons of photos and enjoyed the scenery... More

OK, so I thought this would be a cheesy tourist trap, but it was totally worth it for the spectacular views. We got there early -- about 9 am -- which was key for escaping the crowds (and cheaper, too). By the time we left, the lines were very long. (It's also worth it to get the space needle app... More

Well, it's the Space Needle so everything has already been said about it, I'm sure! If you can pay by credit card, you can go to the kiosk which is often a shorter line. THEN you get your ticket to return when you can actually go up. I'm not crazy about heights but this was "a piece of cake". We... More

It's a shame I have to try and find 100 characters to explain this restaurant when one word could cover it all, Stunning! We ate around 8.15/8.30 and the sun was just about to set over the Pacific Ocean. As the rotating restaurant gave us 360degree view we enjoyed the Crab Cakes to start followed by a 12oz New York...

Everything was great. The 2 Ryans took care of my mother and I. Very well spoken and attentive. Food was great. Came out hot and so flavorful. The view was astonishing. Only thing that's a downer is the price. I get it it's a tourist thing but seriously it was pricey.

The space needle is a great experience but too high priced at $25.00 a person. $15.00 for children under the age of 13years old. We did not eat at the restaurant we only went up on the space needle as to where you can see out for miles.

Save your money! This place is highly over priced. Group of 5 and every one of us were extremely disappointed with the food. Dinner rolls were cold like they came out of the frig. Prime rib (special of the night $54) looked like Dracula got ahold of the meat before the cooks heated it up. Crab cakes were barely larger... More
