Pricey but cool

We had brunch in the restaurant. It was pricey but very good. Included in the price of brunch was a trip up to the observatory. And that was very cool. Try to go on a clear day. The mountains in the background are nice when you can see them.

Amazing view. The food was great and the service outstanding! We made reservations 3 weeks in advance. Can't wait to do it again but for dinner!

We really wanted to go up to the top but the crowds made it impossible. You had to buy your ticket for a specific time and wait in long lines to gonup in the elevator 😕 It was awesome viewing from the outside. There was a nice gift shop.

We had a window seat to enjoy the breathtaking view of the city and the Rainer Mountain. Services are very friendly and attentive, especially a free photo was taken and dispatched later via internet which was totally out of our expectation!!! We ordered prime rib, risotto and ice cream for our lunch, they were really world class standard and worth... More

We decided to have lunch at Sky City Restaurant in the Space Needle and are glad we did. We enjoyed the view, the food was pretty good and the service was good as well. There were eight of us so we tried several items on the menu and no one was disappointed. The lunch is pricey as the total for... More

The food at these type of attractions tends to be pricey and pedestrian in nature but if it's well done , you have good service and attentive staff you really don't care . This was the case for our visit but the staff was well trained, knowledgable of the menu and knowledgeable of " what was what in your panoramic... More

The views from the top are fantastic, its something that needs to be done if you visit Seattle. Could have spent hours up there just looking around at the views. The area around the space needle us also very attractive.

If you are going to pay $26 to go to the top of the space needle you might as well put that towards food. Reservations highly recommended. The most spectacular 360 degree view of the city. The food is good, a bit overpriced but good. Sunset was amazing!!

Make reservations and come early. They will take you in groups up the elevator, and you may need to wait in line to be seated. The restaurant platform spins, and you will notice it as you wait to be seated. Once you are seated and revolving, you will see that the windows are stationary. Many post its and cards are... More

First visit to Skycity Restaurant. Even without the view, the food was excellent. Five stars. Add in the view of Seattle's skyline below, and this becomes a meal to remember for a lifetime. There was even a photograph taking (free) photos.
