SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle Ratings and Reviews
Kid's menu was very overpriced for what was served. When I told the waiter that my grandson's cheeseburger was very dry, his response was, "Some kids like them that way"!! And we were not offered any condiments to try and make the burger edible. Will probably not be visiting the restaurant again.
The food was wonderful, great selection of options. The view from the revolving restaurant is amazing. The table agreed that the razor clam chowder was the best we had ever tasted. The experience of terrific food and incredible views was extremely relaxing and fun. The price for brunch includes entry to the observation deck, which is located on the floor above the restaurant. The fixed price menu offers a three course meal, including starter, entree, and dessert. There are numerous offerings in each of the three categories, making it a desirable challenge to choose!
As long as you choose a day with good visibility it is a great time casually viewing the incredible scenic beauty surrounding Seattle and having a good, leisurely meal. They don't rush you and the service is very considerate and attentive. A great place to take out of town guests.
The spectacular Seattle scenery seen from several hundred feet up was the perfect pairing for perfectly prepared dishes for our foursome. The seafood stew was a tasty mix of fish and shellfish not awash in a bowl of soup. Instead a loaded-with-tomato bits confit lightly seasoned brought out the flavor of each bite of seafood that arrived perfectly cooked. Nothing worse than over-cooked seafood! The waitstaff was attentive and interested in our experience throughout the meal. The drinks were generous as were the appetizers. Highly recommend for that special night out! Spendy? Of course! Worth it? Yes!
We went for brunch. The food was decent but I expected it to be a little better for what it costs. The service was great, although a little slow at times. The waiter was very friendly and polite. The view is incredible and it's worth it just to take in the view of the city.
Una noche genial junto a mi familia, lugar mágico donde sin duda el buen trato y el excelente servicio en general van de la mano... Desde Venezuela hemos hecho esta visita... Y lo recomiendo a todo el que pueda no dejar de visitar el Space Needle
SkyCity was worth everything just for the experience of it. 3 people ate for ~$240 (including two rounds of drinks + meal). The experience was unique and worthwhile but the food overall was pretty ok. Cozy, borderline cramped but not quite there, but I would return for special occasions.
My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary here recently. When we sat down we were presented with a happy anniversary card from the staff. The server brought out an ice cream dessert at the end of the meal that was sitting in dry ice. It was so much fun. It looked like a magic show! Both of these gestures were totally unexpected. The food was fantastic and the view was breathtaking! We had a perfect night!
Ordered steak brochettes and was told they come out extra well cooked so I ordered the medium and it came out rare. As I was cutting through one of them in front of the waiter it flipped off and onto the table. They took back the order for both me and my wife which was very very rare and we cooked it and didn't even replace the one that fell off because it was too raw to cut through. Spent $600 on this meal and was disappointed in the food quality. The waiter did pretty well in terms of his personality but he did not bring out my bread or my beverages until I asked his busser. We had a friend visiting from Alaska and wanted to give him a meal that would be unforgettable. Unfortunately this meal is unforgettable but not for the right reasons. The view was spectacular and is the one thing about this place that makes up for the food.
It's been years since last dining at the Space Needle. Our daughter had never been so we made arrangements at a time and season that would highlight the best that this restaurant has to offer - the view. I could go on at length about views of the sound, the city, Lake Union and the air and boat traffic. Simply put, in my opinion, that's the singular reason to go, plus access to the observation deck is a bonus.
The food itself was well prepared but unexceptional in ingredients or presentation. The combined service of all staff was attentive and timely. The decor is period to the world's fair in 1962 and in some areas a little tired. I understand that the restaurant might be closed during the scheduled renovation of the observation deck and if so I expect that will provide an opportunity to address some of the interior issues.
However wonderful and truly unique the view, at its price point, the Space Needle ranks as an expensive novelty in my list of places to eat.
