SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle Ratings and Reviews
Dining at the sky view was a delight as ...
Dining at the sky view was a delight as far as food, ambience, and service. It is on the pricier side so be prepared to spend. The menu was a little limited but considering the logistics of the location everyone could find something to their liking. I would recommend it as something to experience. I would suggest perhaps putting some small descriptors on the window sill of what you are seeing from the different views.

I have always liked the view from the space needle, but in their past the food was not the greatest. I am happy to say the quality of the food has improved enough to say it is worth the price. In fact when you consider the view, it is a bargain.

I was a bit disappointed in limited menu (I have been there several times, the menu seemed very limited from prior visits.). The price has increased, making it difficult for me to continue bringing my granddaughters for our annual Christmas event. The view is spectaculor, the food was wonderful.

What a special treat! The rotating restaurant gives you a 360 degree view of the beautiful city of Seattle. The ambience is awesome and the service staff is incredible. While it is rather spendy, I would highly recommend it for a special occasion.

This is, after all the Space Needle. We went for brunch on a special weekend in Seattle. The waitress was not overly friendly and did not return to the table more than once after taking our order. However the bus / assistant staff was fantastic and very attentive. The food was moderate and heavy and we learned most people don't finish their plates (at least at brunch per staff). However, the ambiance is amazing and the view is once in a lifetime.

The ambience is absolutely astounding. A truly magnificent place to dine. The food was exorbitantly overpriced for the level of quality received, though. Expect to pay $75 per plate or more, but the food was honestly 2 or 3 star quality. I don't mind paying top dollar for an excellent meal, but this one missed the mark.
Service was ok. The wait staff was often missing for long periods; unacceptable at this price point. Very friendly but often absent and very slow to return with requested condiments, etc.
Sky City is an experience, but don't go there expecting a five star meal, even though it has a 5 star price.

Great ambiance with fabulous views of the city (revolving restaurant). The food was excellent and presented well, and our waiter was very accommodating and friendly. It's pricey, but a great place for a special occasion.

The food was good but hugely overpriced for what you get. Surprised to have the waitress tell us they were out of three things on the menu, and service was generally not great. My husband's prime rib was ordered medium rare but came cooked through. He sent it back and it got a little rarer the second time but not much. Overall, the reason to go here is for the view, not the food and be prepared to spend twice what the same meal would cost without the view.

I went to eat here for prom 12 years ago and it was the best steak I had ever had at a restaurant. I already knew what I was ordering the New York strip. I had been wanting to eat another steak there because it was memorable.
I now personally raise full blood wagyu as opposed to the American wagyu they serve which is a angus wagyu cross. The steak was still very amazing and I'd say it's the best I've had at a restaurant since the last time. I eat at a lot of very high end places as well so I would know. I will be honest it was perfectly cooked and extremely tender. It was moist but one thing it wasn't as rich as I remembered. The one I ate at prom was more like full wagyu melted in your mouth because of the low melting point in the marbling and was very rich so much that I didn't finish it 12 years ago. I still kick myself because I couldn't take it to prom and it was a steak that should of been finished. Still an amazing steak I am just spoiled you won't be disappointed if you order. My date had the surf and turf which was amazing as you can see from the picture. Great flavor to the lobster and steak. I have had surf and turf at many places this lobster tail had much better flavor than any so far. It also depends a lot on the breed for flavor some are bland some are more rich. There's was amazing and large see pictures. Are server was amazing he was cool as hell and made great drink suggestions. I wish I remembered his name but I was so busy enjoying myself and the amazing view I forgot. Overall go if you can afford it my bill was 305$ before tip but it was worth it. I woulda spent more if I coulda crammed something else in me creme brûlée was amazing btw amazing!!!!!Also the glass gardens are a must plain amazing to see epic skill involved in making that stuff.

Customer service was outstanding. My food got delayed for some mishap that happened at the kitchen... Both our server and the manager, Roger, were very apologetic and went above and beyond to make it up to me. The staff were friendly.

Took my son to the Space Needle for his 21st birthday on a Monday night since we couldn't secure reservations for his actual birthday which fell on a Saturday. It was the first time my son, who grew up in Seattle, had been up in the Space Needle and he was in awe. The view is extremely breathtaking. There were a couple of tables with businessmen and a lot of empty tables around us. Our server greeted us after we'd been seated for about 5 minutes. We ordered the 3-course meal rather than order ala cart which was quite spendy . Our server was very pleasant but the service was slow. I probably would not choose to eat here again only because our tab was in excess of $100 apiece for two 3-course meals and 1 glass of wine. If money were no object this would be a "goto" Seattle restaurant.

I was very disappointed in my time at the Sky City restaurant. When we arrived the front desk host did not give us good direction. We had no idea where to stand. We went back to the desk two different times in order to understand where to wait to go up the elevator. When we finally got it the elevator was packed and the elevator attendant also did not give good information. We ended up on the observation deck, which we did not request. We needed to get to our dinner reservation. Once on the OD we did not know how to get to the restaurant. There was no signs and no one to direct us. We finally got to the restaurant where babies were crying, it was packed for a Monday night, and we got sat at a table not near the window when that is what I specially requested. And I was told wouldn't be a problem if we came at 4:30pm. Earlier than we would've ever come, but did anyways in order to get a good table. We were here for a two year anniversary occasion and did not receive any desert or champagne or anything at all to acknowledge we were there for a special occasion. Overall extremely disappointing.

The view was fabulous. Portion size of food was substantial, expected tiny portions. Glad we were wrong. Ease of check in was nice. Restaurant elevator out of service for return trip, would have been nice for the hostess to know about the outage.

We took our daughter to the space needle for her 21st Birthday hoping for a memorable event, it was fantastic! Our server, Alan, gave us great service and the setting of the restaurant is spectacular. The food was good too!

It was an amazing experience to dine in at Sky City with a spectacular view! I love the music that welcomes you at the restaurant lobby/waiting area. All the staffs have a good customer service. Also to take into consideration that we got a free access to the observatory deck. :)

An amazing perspective from this iconic monument. A must see experience from the observation deck to the restaurant. A kind and friendly wait staff to help you followed by a joyous valet experience. Tell your friends and family and stop by at the Space Needle.

Little pricey, but the view was absolutely AMAZING! The food was good, but their most famous dessert you have to purchase separately. Worth the view and money if visiting or for any special occasion. Not somewhere to go on a daily, but definitely worth a visit once in a while to definitely make a memory.
Second time here and will be back again ...
Second time here and will be back again if we travel this way. The food, service, ambience, and view were outstanding. Like this place and recommend it. Pricey but not over the top. So yes save up a little but treat yourself. No disappointment

Had a great time here. When you think about having your pass to go up the Space Needle included in the cost of the meal it's really a good deal. The food was amazing and we got lots of it. The only thing that could have been better was the timing between courses. We waited for a long time to get the main course and dessert.

We made a reservation for lunch on the day after Thanksgiving. I checked out the web site of the restaurant and thought that we would be spending about $25 per person. There was nothing on the website about the holiday weekend. When we got there, we were told that they were serving brunch and it was a fixed price of $50 per person - double what I had planned to spend. I wish I had been informed either by the restaurant or Open Table of this. The service was also very slow even though it was a limited menu.
The combination of an amazing view, the ...
The combination of an amazing view, the delicious meal, a modern and cozy ambience matched with the friendly and outstanding service makes a visit to the Sky City Restaurant a "must do" on one's list when visiting the Emerald city.
