Great sight, good enough food

The sight at the space needle is amazing. it's great to have lunch there so you can appreciate Seattle from a 360° perspective. I think they can do a little bit better with the food there.

Went here for Sunday brunch with a group of eight. The restaurant was set up beautifully for enjoying the view while you dine. The meal starts with a basket of sweets, and then you choose off the menu for three courses. The food was very good, as good as the view. I find these restaurants usually don't put much thought...

We were a walk in and grabbed the last table, the food was amazing! Get the pork chop you won't regret it. The views were fantastic and you get free admission to the observation deck if you done there. They also give you a free photo. There is a minimum purchase amount of $35 per person but expect to pay... More

While waiting for our food, my husband and I spend time by taking more scenic photos. We both believed that having lunch at the Sky City actually provided better photographing opportunity because of the unencumbered view compared to taking pictures from the observation deck. We were pleasantly surprised that our lunch was excellent. We thought our experience was just going... More

After reading all the great reviews and checking out the website's menu, I made reservations for Sunday Valentine weekend brunch. We were so excited to go. Arrival was easy by doing valet parking ($12 that you pay your server but worth not dealing with the hassle), only had to wait a few minutes before the ride up, and another few... More

We came to Seattle for our 6 yr old's birthday. Of course we had to have dinner at the Space Needle. Yeah, yeah, so the food is not "French Laundry" - so what? The view, the post-its on the windows, the amazingly-nice staff. We would pay every penny and more again. Our kids loved it, what else is there to... More

(See my Seattle Space needed review) the food was great, not a lot of choice, but we weren't really there for the food as much the experience- price, if you're already wanting to visit the observation deck, and planning on eating somewhere in the city, the price difference is really worth the experience! Don't forget if use the restroom, the... More

The day I ate here, it was a beautiful clear day so the view was outstanding! It took me a bit to get acclimated to sitting on a moving platform, but once I did there was no problem. I ordered the wild boar ragut and some wine and it was fantastic! The service was wonderful and we had a wonderful... More

Once you get settled, no need to move the view comes to you. Be prepared to eat, the food quality matches the views and the quantities are large.

The view was great! The service was excellent! You are able to really take your time and enjoy the experience. Food was good, the prices are high, but considering you are probably there for the experience not the food, it is worth it.
