Beyond Excellent Food and A Spectacular View

This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten at. The portions were ample and I had the best lamb ever. If I could have I would had ordered a second portion. The rotating view of Seattle is spectacular.

Great place to celebrate a special occasion or enjoy the awesome view of Seattle. Service was impeccable, wine list was thorough, and the food was well beyond our expectations!

We had lunch at the space needle. We made reservations to eat at 1:45 giving us time to walk around. We had the chicken and lamb burgers. The accommodated us by splitting a salad. The food was great. The view was great. They give you a free ticket to the observation deck with the meal. You go on separate elevator... More

AWESOME! I had the mussels and a salad. The mussels were the best I have ever tasted. The broth was creamy with just a little hint of spice. Waitress was on top of everything. 10+ rating. We were lucky to get reservations for the same day, which is unusual. The views as the resturant revolves is breath taking. We made... More

the views are pretty cool but would have been better to go on a clear day to be able to see more of the city without the smog view as well.

入場券を買ってタワーに上るまでほぼ1時間、もう少し短縮できればと思う。しかし上からの眺めは、シアトルの美しい街並み、豊富な水資源と相まって素晴らしい。 Takes almost an hour to get to the top and hope it get be shortened but view from the observatory tower is excellent thanks for the beautiful city and vast water source.

We went because the cost of going up the needle to observation deck made the cost of brunch look like good value. Thought this would be typical mediocre tourist trap food, but we couldn't have been more wrong. We had the Friday brunch, which was a choice of 3 courses and the food was simply superb, seriously some of the... More

The Space Needle is one of the best tourist must do. We made reservations for the weekend brunch. The menu consisted of choice of beverage (non-alcoholic), appetizer, main course and dessert. Each choice was creative, flavorful and well worth the price. Waitstaff was superb and very attentive. But the highlight was the incredible panoramic views of Seattle area all while... More

The best way to see the city is at Sky City. We had a delightful time with the post it notes that the restaurant provides. Post a little message on the window and everyone circling behind you will write back. Great fun for families and teens alike. We found it best to go for lunch because prices were, understandably, expensive.... More

The food was amazing and presented like in an attractive arrangement. We had the wild Salmon and it tasted better here than anywhere else we've been whether on a cruise ship or in Alaska!
