The food is secondary to the relaxing 360 view that you slowly experience. Very beautiful restaurant. I didn't much fancy the vegetarian option but the meat was apparently very good.

It was such a great experience. I went for my 17th birthday, it was fancy but at the same time not too fancy since all kinds of people eat here (tourists). The 360 view was amazing! It was awesome. It won't get you sick, it moves very slowly so don't worry. The service was great and the food was great... More

One of the best steaks I have ever had - and I'm fussy! The quality of the food and service is excellent and you are expected to at least make the effort to appear neat and tidy, although not everybody does. It is an expensive restaurant but you don't begrudge it when you try the food. As the saying goes... More

We have been twice, once for lunch with out of town visitors and once for a milestone birthday celebration. It is a great experience - the views are great and the food and service were much better than we expected both times. The prices are high but when you consider that you do not have to buy a separate Space... More

This is one of the must do attractions in Seattle: go to the space needle. Just getting to the deck might not be cheap if you're a large family or big group but what most people don't know is that you can access the deck from the restaurant and thus can enjoy a good lunch or dinner at the top...

Given it is a tourist trap I was not expecting much quality for the meal. We were pleasantly surprised. A small selection on a preset menu for a high price but you do get an amazing view. The quality of the food was above average plus they had free picture taking and live piano music. Service was good. We would... More

I was overseas for my 50th birthday away from my family in the Caribbean for 14 months, then, we all moved cats, lock, stock amd barrel to my hometown of Seattle. So OF COURSE, I had a birthday to make up for :-). We decided on lunch at the Space Needle not only because my Mom was pregnant with my... More

Went for the view and to continue our series of eating in all the revolving restaurants we find worldwide. The Space Needle is an iconic and historic structure therefore a potential "tourist trap", but actually not at all bad. Booking the Skycity restaurant also gives VIP/fast track access to the viewing gallery on the floor immediately above, with its tacky... More
