If you can afford it, then get tickets and eat here. Very nice dining, food is delicious, and view of city is awesome. Don't forget to bring your camera! Gift shop is expensive too.

We had a delicious lunch and awesome views as the restaurant slowly rotated, giving us incredible views in all directions. The food and service was very good and the views even better. After lunch, we went to the observation floor to take a few more pictures, a memorable experience for the eight of us!

I took my wife to Seattle for 4 days. Great city by the way, totally superseded all our expectations. On valentine's day we had brunch atop the space needle. Food was great, views were amazing, and even more amazing since the restaurant does full rotations for you to view the whole city. Beautiful restaurant, killer views, surprisingly inexpensive. Enjoy.

Great views and a fun experience. We combined the ticket with Chihully glass museum and loved the museum as much as the space needle experience.

The Space Needle is awesome, I think most would agree. But how many people spend an hour outside in the cold air...well if you make reservations to eat at the Sky City restaurant you can count on at least an hour of beautiful views of the city inside where it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter....

My husband and I took a chance and stopped in for lunch without a reservation after visiting the observation deck. We were seated in less than 10 minutes! This once in a life time experience is completely worth the cost. The views are spectacular, the food is excellent, but best of all was the service. Our server, Tammy, treated us... More

Throw away the budget for this one--you won't regret it! While it will probably be the most expensive meal during your trip to Seattle, it will be your most memorable. The food never fails to impress the food critic in my family and what a view!

I can only add my voice to all the other reviews that laud its fabulous views, rotating restaurant, and reasonable priced food. But our experience was enhanced by over-the-top great service. The staff couldn't have been better and our group was not easy with four little kids, grandmothers, loud sisters, and two birthday cakes. Even then the staff was smiley... More

Well, place nice, food awesome, but it looked like they sell every tiny place, sitting at the piano ( no reservations means no place at the window ), 7 places were sold to 8 ( 2+4 ) plus squeeze in 1 adult +1 kid, with the kid sitting grandma had to stand and kindly from a family father he gave...
