I took both of my god-daughters for their 18 and 15 year birthday celebrations. The experience was outstanding for them both. The only thing that really didn't fit was the server and her attitude. She was not attentive and almost appeared "put-out" when asked questions. The rest of the staff from the bus support to the Piano entertainment was wonderful.
The quality of the food and service was ...
The quality of the food and service was outstanding. I'm always concerned that places that are commercialized are over-priced and the food mediocre but that was clearly not our experience. For a special, memorable evening we highly recommend having dinner here but will be pricey if you have children. My wife and I would definitely do it again if in Seattle.

We went as part of our vacation to Seattle. The views were beyond amazing. We were there for sunset and as the evening progressed the lights of the city were beautiful. Food was very good but expensive. Although if you calculate that you don't have to pay admission to go to the top of the needle it probably puts it in line with other restaurants

This was my first visit to Seattle and my first to the Space Needle. When I saw that you could go to the Skyline for brunch and it included ticket to the observation deck I was sold. I was not sorry, the meal was absolutely delicious and the view couldn't be better. The portions were so large that I had trouble eating it all and having a choice of an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $29.95 to me was a bargain since I also got to see a wonderful view of Seattle's waterfront. I highly recommend the Skyline Restaraunt Brunch

My food was not good. The Brussel sprouts were actuall so hard I couldn't cut with a steak knife. Sent them back and they were still cold in the middle.
The scallops were raw and actually cold in the center. I couldn't eat anything except the salad.
Restaurant still charged for the whole dinner
I never complain about food but this is one of the worst dinners over had had.

Over all our experience was wonderful. My son, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our waiter, our meal and our view. The downside was that our table was not ready when we arrived so we were told that we should go to the oberservation deck and we would be texted (cell phone number confirmed). We had a drink and walked all around the deck and were overwhelmed with the amazing views. At 1:50 we went down to the restaurant (we had a 1:30 reservation and it closes at 2:45) we approached the front desk and told them we had not received our text. The host said, oh I guess it hasn't gone through yet. We were seated an all is well, but 3 days later the text still has not come through!! I'm thinkin' it wasn't sent and wonder what would have happened if we had patiently waited.

Website somewhat confusing about when lunch vs. brunch offered. One front desk person left a lot to be desired in the customer service department. One was okay. Our main server was not the greatest. She was totally not into what she was doing. Her assistant server was much warmer and nicer. This meal was definitely pricey, but worth the experience overall.

The dinner menu is quite limited. The menu online shows a mushroom risotto that they no longer offer so there is not one vegetarian entree. The ambiance is fantastic, but our server was rushed and seemed too rehearsed. The food was ok- nothing great- definitely not worth the high price tag. If I go again it will be for lunch. Costco sells gift cards that will save you some $.

We were celebrating the 50th Anniversary of meeting each other, & our 1st date to the Space Needle, both of which occurred on Thursday Sept 22, 1966...so it was quite important to have dinner there on Thursday, Sept 22, 2016. Our meal & service were fantastic--& waiting for a window table was worth it. We enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope to return (we live in Idaho) & tour the glass museum & other surrounding beauty. Thank you!

At first the online reservation system had no space available, but when I tried later I was able to obtain one. The view from the needle is spectacular and the menu choices are adequate. Our party enjoyed the experience.

Overpriced, of course, but still a better deal to get a meal for roughly the same price as simply taking the elevator to the top of the Space Needle. Considering how much the food costs, the large portion sizes and quality of the food were surprisingly good. We did have excellent and friendly service from the waitstaff.

I thought this place had the best views in all of Seattle. The price is a little steep for the value, but when you factor in the 22$ per ticket it would cost just to see the view in the first place, it seems to work out. Great ambiance, quick and polite service.

its our first time ....and i will definitely do it again on christmas day or New year.......or may be 4th of july......wer from NY space needle is different level of excitement compare to NYC ......love the view perfect for family ......my baby love the park below the restaurant......recommended to a friend is a must when u come here in Seattle......service is Very good, food i got wild salmon taste fantastic, restaurant seating is definitely ine of a kind 360view of Seattle ......perfect get away

We went here with out of town visitors who were supposed to have gone there with other passengers from a cruise they had gone on, but the event was cancelled by the cruise line. We decided to treat them to lunch at the Space Needle. The food was excellent and the service attentive. This is a very expensive place to go, but worth the price occasionally if one can afford it. Three of the four of us had seafood dishes which were beautifully prepared and very tasty. We had an ice cream dessert on dry ice which was a lot of fun. The creme brulee was the best part of the meal. We were not rushed when the meal ended and were able to enjoy the view of the area.

With the sun setting over the mountains and reflecting in the water of the bay you couldn't have a better place for an anniversary dinner. The food was excellent if a bit pricey. We took advantage of valet parking so that we could have as much time in the tower as possible. The continuing rotation of the restaurant gave you something new to look at every time you looked up. If in Seattle would highly recommend the Space Needle restaurant for lunch or dinner.

WOW! Simply spectacular. Went with friends visiting from San Diego. You expect to have the view. Had the 8oz Kobe Steak. Excellent. Wife had salmon. She said among the best she has ever had. Service was what you would expect from a high class restaurant. Our friends commented that it was a time they would hope would never end. Truly a memorable evening. Thank you to all at the restaurant.

I wasn't expecting great food--mostly a great view but the meal was one of the best I've had at restaurants lately. My steak was the quality of a fancy steakhouse like Mortons or Flemings. The food was excellent. The view was incredible. Our server was very nice and helpful. I would go back again to this restaurant. The rotating view was awesome.

Yes, it's pricey and often a real hassle to get to and from (where isn't in downtown Seattle these days?) but a genuine Seattle experience, well worthy having now and then if one can afford it. It is always a special thrill for out-of town guests and provides a sense of pride to the local host(s).
Our only disappointment was with the valet parking, which was neither efficient nor very courteous especially given the cost.
The food quality was excellent, very well presented, and certainly plentiful.

I would only suggest this place for brunch. After you factor in the price to get to the top of the Needle anyway, you get a 3 course meal for $28, which is a steal when you compare the prices to the lunch and dinner menu.

Literally ZERO vegetarian entrees. Obscenely overpriced, even by tourist standards. This is far from fine dining and is really just a scam. Recommend for lunch when the per person minimum is only $25 and you can just enjoy the view over drinks. Service was abysmally slow as well... but you can't beat the views.

The view is the money shot, JD our server bent over to make us feel at home (and he's a great picture taker) food was great, desert was excellent, Costco has the $100 dollar gift cards for $78 will save you some cash. This place will seal the deal if you are dating. LOL

Dining at the Space Needle is such a treat! The 360 degrees view is breathtaking, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the food was delicious! Making a reservation ahead of time is necessary though the online booking process is easy and you'll get a confirmation call the day before. The dinner menu is rather pricey, but the food is so delicious and well presented that it was absolutely worth it for a special occasion! A lovely, unique, and stunning restaurant at 500'.
