As we approached the Space Needle, we were a little concerned, seeing the long line, but since we had dinner reservations, we got to skip to the front to an almost private elevator. The weather was very nice, so enjoyed the spectacular views on the observation deck before entering the restaurant for dinner. The food was unbelievable. I had the... More

We had just arrived in Seattle and were staying at the Hyatt House. It was right across the street from the Space Neede and the Sky City revolving restaurant. Reservations are usually a must, but luckily they had a table for 2 available. It was the first time we had been in a revolving restaurant and enjoyed seeing all of... More

We traveled as two couples, it was recommended to us to make reservations and experience the restaurant at the space needle. I figured it was more about the experience and the food would just be mediocre. Wow were we surprised. It took 50 minutes to rotate one revolution and we made about 2 1/2 revolutions while we ate. The food... More

Hands down a gorgeous back drop for dinner (6 pm) provided a sunset view and then ending with a beautifully lit city. The food was delicious, but at a price of $60-100 a plate, it left a little to desire. I'd say 4 star food with a 5 star view.

Visited here yesterday. The weather was glorious- blue sky and sunny. The views were just amazing and love the revolving aspect of the restaurant. No matter where you were seated everyone had a chance to see the breathtaking 360 degree views over the city. Unfortunately when we were seated the bench had water already spilt on it and one of...

Being an "attraction restaurant" I expected high prices for so-so food. What we received was a very fair price with great food. I had the Seafood Stew, which was loaded with shrimp, mussels, scallops and much more.

Go for lunch. Your ticket to the top is FREE with a minimum restaurant spend (includes alcohol!) of $25 per person for lunch (more for dinner). The food is great, short of excellent when you factor in the price. You ARE paying for the view making lunch the more affordable option. Frankly, two cocktails per person and you'd hit the... More

We have been to the Space Needle Restaurant on several very special occasions and have never been disappointed. We try to time our dinner to correspond with sunset so we can appreciate the city lights coming to life. The food has always been very good and the service spectacular. Additionally, with your dinner reservation you can take a flight of... More
