SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle Ratings and Reviews
Visited Seattle for our 6 year anniversary. It was noted when making the reservation awhile back where the restaurant gave us a congratulations card which was very sweet. Had a table right next to the window and had a lovely meal while seeing all of Seattle. The waitress was more than wonderful. She made our experience more than great and we had an amazing time. I would definitely would recommend this place as a date or special occasion.
As with everything, there are rules and parameters in order to reserve and dine anywhere. By abiding by the rules encountered at SkyCity, there was a clear and present discord of which we had hoped to have a very enjoyable time with our reservation. To start off with, we did arrive early, and thus, had to wait to abide by the 30 minute rule for our reservation. Note one. Upon validating our reservation, instructions were giving to follow the contour of the wall an await at the sign for the next available elevator. While waiting in line, a whole 10 minutes time, I was text on my cell phone to take the stairs by the yellow door from the Observation Deck to the dining room. We were still on the ground floor waiting for the elevator. Note two. Finally, the ride on the elevator, the operator informed all those with highlighted mark on their reservation card must go to the Observation level. So I was thinking, well, since we had a text to proceed to the dining room, we could just ride the elevator down to that level. Upon leaving the elevator, the operator notice our highlighted reservation card and smirked. Note three. Upon entering the dining area, we provided the reservation card ahead of a couple, yet, the couple behind us was seated ahead of us. Note four. After sitting in the dining waiting area for 5 minutes, we were escorted to our table. The worst most possible setting. We were in an elevated table, only to see two tables ahead of us unable to view through the windows. Note five. The service was good and the food was OK. The entire experience was distasteful to me. Here was an opportunity for me to sit with my wife on our eight anniversary and dine with her face to face. I was not able to do that.
The whole experience was just that. An experience I will never encounter again. Because we will not make that mistake again. Plus, we will let our friends and family know as well.
I was in Seattle visiting my son who is active-duty Army, he is young and his first time being so far away from home I came out to get him settled in and help them purchase a car he thought of this idea on his own and we had the most fantastic time ever the views were tremendous the food was outstanding and our waiter Dave was very very friendly.
What an amazing experience! I was initially skeptical about the food quality and price given previous reviews that I had read. I am so glad that we decided to go ahead with the brunch regardless. The menu featured a three course meal with enough selections that all of us chose something different and we all really enjoyed the meals. We were fortunate enough to get a sunny break during a rainy day and enjoyed beautiful scenery during our meal. OpenTable made the reservation easy and SkyCity was really worth it!
Went to the restaurant for brunch. had an easy time getting checked in at reservation desk and got on elevator quickly. after we made it to the restaurant, we were seated within 5 minutes. got a window table. luckily the weather cooperated and we had an awesome view of the Seattle skyline. the food was terrific. the service was great. didn't have to wait long for all 3 courses. after our meal, took the stairs up to the observation deck. overall, we had an excellent experience! two thumbs up!
It was worth it, it was a my husband's birthday, and our grandson and him had never been there before! It was something they will cherish for a long time! The service was outstanding, the food was fantastic! The three course meal was so plentiful! From the valet parking, to the elevator attendant, very good customer service!
I took my wife and our 1 year old for a Valentine's dinner
Celebration. The restaurant emailed me and offered specific accommodations for us including champagne, a dozen roses, a table on the edge, and perfect dessert. I took the offer and it was WELL worth it. Our daughter was comfortable and the noise level was appropriate for her, she was never too loud and she appreciated the white noise.
The service was incredible and we really enjoyed our time with our server. He was in charge of many tables, but still was constantly interacting with us, filing our flutes and complimenting our daughter.
The food was spectacular. Worth every penny. Our meat was cooked to perfection and everything came out the perfect temperature.
The view is heavenly. We set our reservation at 5:15pm and would do it at that time again and again. We saw the daylight, dusk, sunset, and evening. Plus you get access to the observation deck for drinks before and after your meal with your reservation.
I highly recommend this restaurant. It was absolutely sensational. Best meal, date and experience we have been on!
We love this place, always been here for brunch and food is always been good. Staff members are super welcoming and friendly, but our server. She made us feeling uncomfortable from the beginning to the end, never asked how where we or if we were enjoying our meal, we had to ask if we could order drinks, And again And again. Dropping the check 2 minutes after we hed desserts assuming we hed to go somewhere else.
The restaurant is beautiful and worth the visit. But if your server is Cadence ask to change server so you can have a guide more then a fast-food order taker.
Its an amazing restaurant on top of the city. Its actually spinning slowly so we can get a good view of the whole city. Me and my bf was there for our valentine's date .(2 days before the actual valentine's day) the reservation was made 1 month before we got there just a little bit of wait on the first floor and got in elevator 5mins wait downstair .Prices little high but it worth it. We had 1lbs of king crabs and scallops It was delicious. Specially our dessert " the Lunar of orbiter" really cool looking and it was so good. I would love to go back for special occasions with my friends and family next time. Best meal i'd ever enjoy at a high class restaurant in seattle so far. must try if you are in town. Or never been in one this is the place.
I brought my girlfriend here to propose two days before Valentine's Day. Our reservation was for 5:15, we arrive a little before 5:00pm and were seated probably around 5:00. They hadn't been open for dinner long so that may have helped speed the process but not bad for giving the car to valet, checking in, security, and the elevator ride to the top. The view is magnificent and you will most likely rotate 2-3 times depending how long you are there. Food was exceptional, we did the three course meal and ordered a bottle of wine. I believe they do different things for different special events, but if you plan on proposing be sure to speak to your waiter privately. They did an excellent presentation of bringing her ring out with desert and she was very surprised. I would thoroughly recommend the restaurant for the food and atmosphere, but they definitely get top billing for making our night extra special.
Almost everything about the experience was awesome! I brought my girlfriend here for a Valentine's Day Date. The check-in was quick, the elevator had an amazing view, and since we arrived a little early we were able to visit the observation deck and walk around outside. The food was great, I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese (I highly recommend), and the Pork (Served under/raw, but was cooked longer at my request). My Girlfriend had the Cornish Hen (Delicious). Overall great experience, only complaint was the raw pork dish.
Great place for the view.... But in my opinion that is what you are paying for is the view. Over priced food. My Cornish game hen was dry and salty. I did not eat it.... Prime rib had more fat then meat and not cooked to liking. The best part of my meal was the Pear Drop.... Very good but way over priced for what you get....Not sure I would return for dinner. I might try Lunch. Meal is not worth the price for sure. And at those prices you would think the service would be top notch as well... just so so
Everything was great, but I wish they didn't try to fit so many people in the elevator. That part was very uncomfortable and took away from the view. Other than that, food was amazing, the service was great and we had a blast! We brought our 6 year old son and it was perfect for him as well and they were able to accommodate our gluten free needs. We will definitely be back! It is expensive though.
The view of course is why you go not for anything else. The did was not good except for the soup and dessert were good. I had salmon that was not cooked through. My husband had a muffin with a walnut shell in it that stabbed his mouth. It was so loud you had to yell at each other to talk. You had to stand like cattle for the elevator. Considering the price I wouldn't do it again
The view was of course amazing. The food however was not. I had the three course meal and the main was the tenderloin beef brochette. It's seven pieces of beef on skewers, interspersed with potatoes. 3 out of the seven pieces of beef were gristly, the potatoes were undercooked and it was on a bed of long broccoli, which was super hard and crunchy as well. The salad starter was ok, and the dessert was underwhelming to say the least. I had no drinks and the bill was still $100...
Great location for a romantic date for a couple of senior citizens. Had planed the time to see the sun set and the city lights come on. Only draw back was the weather. We got to see the city in the late afternoon but then the good old Seattle rain came in and the clouds blocked the view. The food was very good, the service was good. The overall experience was very good.
Food was absolutely delicious. The views were amazing and you can't beat a restaurant that gives you a amazing 360 degree view of Seattle without leaving your table. This is not an inexpensive restaurant with all dinner items costing $50+ but for the value of getting viewing deck passes, great food and an amazing view experience. If you are able to spend the money for a special occasion, this is well worth it!
