We did brunch. We were skeptical of the prices but once I realized that to go up in the space needle was so expensive I was ok with it. Basically if you pay for your child to eat brunch then it's almost the same price as just admission to the space needle. For adults it's like paying for a nice... More

Celebrated a relative's birthday here and it was a wonderful experience. The food was really good and the views couldn't be topped.

The food, the service and of course the food was simply outstanding. Was surprised for what I would consider an upscale dinning experience, the tables were not covered with a cloth. A little surprised for the price I expected a more upscale setting

We had reservations for dinner and enjoyed the food and the magnificent rotating view from our table. The portions are very small for the cost of the meal ( $59.00 ) for a steak and potatoes but I guess it's the scenery you actually are paying for. One of the benefits of eating there is the observatory is included in... More

It is an expensive restaurant. However, if you plan to get up to the space needle anyway, the price had already included the observation deck, plus you have a separate line to get into the elevator much quicker than the regular line. You can make your choice for one appetizer, entree and dessert within a set of menus. Our waiter... More

Great way to see the city of Seattle and Pugent Sound. Also, has a food court and gift shop. An elevator zips you to the top where you can spend as much time as you like walking around the needle to enjoy 360 degree view of the city and the sound. A must when you visit Seattle.

We were not optimistic, worried it would be a tourist trap, but how wrong were we. The views are spectacular, especially on a clear sunny day, when Mount Rainier is in view. The quality of food was excellent, we had salmon and chicken dishes and our children had the kids' chicken. The salmon was one of the best dishes I... More

We had brunch there on a Saturday. It is a flat fee of 48.95 per person. The choices were good. You could pick breakfast items or prime rib or salmon. It is a three course meal with coffee, tea or juice as drink options. The views are amazing overlooking the city. The restaurant spins slowly as you eat so you... More

The meal was overpriced and not something that I would eat normally. If the restaurant was any where else I wouldn't of gone or ate there. But the view and the service makes up for it. It was gorgeous and beautiful. The waitress was very nice and attentive as was the bus guy. I don't regret going but expect to... More

If you are in Seattle, you must see it. It is as simple as that. The Needle has been the face of Seattle for as long as it has been there and the views are unsurpassed. With the Chihuly exhibition available at its bottom and on a combined ticket it is something you must simply and happily do!
