We've driven past this restaurant for years and always talked about trying it out, and recently, we finally did. The views were really pretty spectacular, especially the view of the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial. The food was pretty good and we were both pleased with our meal. Would definitely come back and would enjoy bringing some of our out-of-town visitors here.

The Sky Dome is a good place to take in the panoramic view of Washington. The food was good but a bit pricey. The portion sizes were a little on the small side. But overall a good place to go.

My family and I had dinner at Sky Dome to celebrate two birthdays, and had a wonderful time. The view is great, the revolving floor is fun and we found the food to be very good. It's not a huge menu but everyone enjoyed their dinners - the tab for 6, including a bottle of wine, at least one cocktail, 3 appetizers, 6 main courses, three desserts and four coffees was about $400 - so, a little pricey but not outrageous. Our server was friendly and attentive and for a special occasion, we'd go back again!

Absolutely amazing view of DC, have been to several revolving restaurants in my life but this is my favorite! Food is delicious, but it's pricey so I wouldn't be eating there every week however its nice on occasion! The severs are very nice but we had to flag them down to get refills and put orders in, in fairness they were very busy with two birthday parties so might have just been that night. One more thing, every time I've gone its been pretty chilly in there so better bring a coat! Other than that great experience, perfect place to bring a date!

There is no question that the views from the sky dome are amazing. The food was very good.
What I found strange was that when we were revolving you get to see behind the bar, and as you move pass the bar your very close to customers backsides as they sat at the bar.
A bit of background music would give a better atmosphere, and also drown out some of the customers that would rather shout at each other than talk.

Thank you for your review. It is nice to read that you enjoyed the views and found the food to be very good. Yes, it can get cozy as you get to the bar during the revolution, and perhaps when the Skydome is remodeled at some point, this will be changed. Your suggestion for background music is appreciated.
