View incredible, the food not so memorable, but it was a great experience. Better places to eat, but only place for that view. Not planing on returning, but glad to have done it.

Yes, the view can't be beaten, but the food is lacking. It's classic fare, and the menu is designed for the masses. If you enjoy the local and regional cuisine, this is not for you. We had no issues with our service and or the food other than It could have been an Olive Garden or chain type style. So... More

We were so glad we stayed at the Fairmont because the concierge was able to get us a table where we couldn't when we went to book in person while visiting the space needle. So my tip ask the hotel concierge to book a table .

We ate dinner there. They had a prefix menu with a choice of three entrees one of which was not available. They had other items available alacarte. We expected to sit at a window( the reason we wanted to eat there) and were placed in a raised booth across another table so that we could not take pictures without interrupting... More

Our table was on the outside of the revolving ring and the views were wonderful, however you can feel it moving unlike other revolving restaurants we have... More
