Amazing view, so so food! We made reservations for brunch for my birthday and I did not look at the menu before hand thinking that it was a buffet! I was very disappointed at the offerings and the servings. To start, we ordered a bottle of champage, that was ok. Next, we had waffle (it was a quarter size), with... More

Really beautiful experience. We went during sunset and a somewhat sunny day. The food was very yummy and priced as I expected. Note to others - when you check in, tell them you want a window seat. They will make you wait "45 mins", but really it is when the next table opens up. We waited about 10 mins.

The views of Seattle from the top are amazing. Queues move quickly and you can buy a joint ticket for this and Chihuly glass & gardens which is next door.

Love the Space Ice Cream! A bit on the expensive side. Food is okay but not my favorite restaurant. Awesome View when the weather is clear. Not worth it on a cloudy or overcast day. Try to get a seat by the window. Restaurant is revolving.

Knocked an item off my grandson's bucket list with dinner at the Seattle Space Needle. The view was unparralleled, and the portion size was perfect for so late in the day. Food was cooked to perfection (I had the halibut), but wow - talk about over priced! For the five of us (no drinks, no appies) the total of the... More

Service was wonderful! Food great! A little on the pricey side but worth it! The food was very impressive. We went here in a group for breakfast. It was very nice. I'd recommend the Momosa. Yum. Treat yourself!

Paying for the views and not necessarily the food. Tried the nettle soup and salmon. 3 other diners chose plates that were all nicely composed and hungrily consumed. I would recommend this beautifully rotating restaurant on top of Seattle!

We were fortunate enough to have reservations at the Space Needle for their Sunday Bunch on a "blue bird" day. Reservations are a must, and include a ticket on the lift going to both the restaurant and the observation deck above it. While the center of the restaurant is fixed in place, the large disk on which the tables are... More

The location is the catch with this restaurant. The food is good but a little on the pricey side, but the view in a rotating restaurant in the sky is worth it all.

My young sons were taken away with the dinner visit to the Space Needle and Sky City Restaurant. They thought it was so neat that the restaurant rotated around while we were eating, giving us amazing views of the city and the waterfront. While very spendy, it was nice to treat our family to the quality food and amazing views.... More
