Want a spectacular view of Seattle? Look no further than Sky City (it's all about the view). The food however is mediocre and service left a lot to be desired. The waiter barely checked in with us after we were given our food and only reappeared to inquire if we wanted dessert. Lunch for two, without drinks is about $60... More

I had booked lunch at SkyCity for a birthday. The best part about having a reservation at the restaurant (other than the obvious food and drink) is the ability to get up into the observation deck 30 mins before your reservation. We arrived early, spoke to the front desk (no waiting in line!!) and two minutes later we were going... More

When I first saw this I always wanted to go up in it. Never did I dream that one day I would! Absolutely worth the cost for anyone!

We visited the Space Needle on Sunday morning. It is a great structure and a huge tourist attraction; however, it is more touristy than I like. The gift shop was mobbed. When we went to buy tickets we found out it would be a 1 1/2 hour wait to go up and cost $22 - not worth it to us.

If you want to go to the top of the Space Needle, you should make an advance reservation at this restaurant. The ticket to the restaurant includes a trip to the top observation deck. Be sure to reserve days, if not weeks in advance. Plan to go to the restaurant at the very beginning of when it opens so you... More

If you want to experience the Space Needle, go to this restaurant! The food is great, a little pricey but basically the admission the space is included which is steep so all in all it was worth it. The coolest part is the restaurant rotates as you are sitting at your table so you get to see the whole city... More

Is it expensive? Yes. You will easily drop $50 per person for dinner. Is the food worth it? Yes! The Chef here makes world class food. The bonus is the View. On a clear day/evening, the view of Mt Baker & Mt Rainier is worth the price by itself. Reservations are a must. If you can, plan your dinner so... More

Expensive but worth it. You get a lot of food for the price! Views were great. Ask for window seat for the best view but all of the tables face the window. Our server, Jessica, was great. Knew a lot about the area and gave us a list of other things to do while in Olympic National Park. She pointed... More

We had reservations, and were sat at a table at the window, wonderful view, enhanced by a clear sunny day! Our lunch was great and the service was excellent! Not inexpensive, but, to me, it was well worth every penny! We enjoyed every minute of this lunch!

Not much new can be said about the Space Needle, but I wanted to try! We aren't much for "typical" tourist spots and we almost skipped the Space Needle thinking it wouldn't be that interesting. Fortunately, the combination ticket with the Chihuly sculpture garden made it very reasonable to tack on a Space Needle visit if we were willing to... More
