Great view from the rotating restaurant so you see the whole city over the course of your meal. We went for lunch as a family of 4 and had great appetizer and burgers. Pricey, but for the benefit of avoiding the lines, having food and also getting access to the viewing area, it was worth it to me. Our server... More

Took my wife here for her birthday. I was expecting it to be pricey (and it was). I was not expecting the food to be as good as it was. I figured you pay for the views. No. It was one of the best steak dinners I've ever had. It is worth it if you are planning a special occasion.... More

First time Seattle travelers in town for a family wedding. We lucked out with fantastic weather, so yes the view was amazing. The restaurant revolves once in about 45 minutes. We got 3 full revolutions. Our server Tim was fantastic, He was was running on butane. Steady and reliable (inside joke). He took us to Tim buck too and back... More

The view from the restaurant is gorgeous (assuming the weather is being cooperative) The restaurant spins in a circle as you dine. We experienced the most beautiful sunset and view of the Mt. Rainier and the sound. The food was not very good and certainly not worth the price. I was thinking of order a couple of appetizers and the... More

My server was great with her recommendations - I happened to be there on a day the Wild Mushroom Bisque was being served - a don't miss. I also had the Cauliflower Flatbread and it was extraordinary. The whole staff was great about making sure I had everything I needed or wanted and the revolving of the restaurant gives you... More

Friend and I came here for our NYE celebration and wanted to start the year at Sky City. We had reservations, which I highly recommend. It was packed, but we were sat pretty quickly. The meal lasted a couple of hours so we were able to see the entire city in the 360 view a couple of times. Everything was... More

Be sure to make reservations! And bring your wallet!! This experience and the meal is worth the price you pay though! And come early to your reservation and you can visit the observation deck without an additional ticket purchase. Make sure to bundle up for the deck and bring a hungry tummy! Menu is eclectic and delicious and the kids... More

Took the family to brunch for my wife's bday. Great experience all around. Food was great. Service was excellent. Views are amazing. We were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny clear day. 3 kids ages range from 2-12 years had a fabulous time, of course they placed handwritten notes for others to comment on and had fun seeing the responses...

The Sky City Restaurant is a better value than you might think at first. If you have out of town guests that want to go up the Space Needle, booking a reservation with Sky City is the best way to enjoy a good meal, good service and an unbeatable view. Sky City guest get discounted valet parking, which is the... More
