The food was just too rich. We both felt slightly sick when we got home.
The fifty dollar brunch was only worthwhile because of the fabulous view.
Such a limited brunch four days out of the week (Fri-Mon) must be about tourist
Season. We live in the Seattle area and we're celebrating a grand-daughters 18th birthday
But will not do that again. We recommended it to friends from out of town but they said
It was just too expensive. Now I see why.

Service and food was excellent. Our reservation was later in the evening so they ran out of the entree we wanted. They gave us our soup for free and the entree we ended up ordering was excellent so it all worked out. The wine our waitress recommended was great. It was just a great experience all around and worth every penny.

Always a good dining experience. First time we had been for brunch and it was excellent. A great value! The portions were perfect so we could easily pace ourselves through all three courses without feeling over-stuffed. Everything was perfect, including the service! We love to bring our visitors here. Thank you!

Very much enjoyed the restaurant. Good food, very pleasant service. Phenomenal views of Seattle and particularly Mt Ranier. The champagne brunch used to proved free unlimited refills of sparkling wine when I visited the restaurant 25 years ago. Now it is pay by the glass but this is not such a disadvantage as the quality of the food makes up for it.

Although the food was excellent, you would go to SkyCity for the fabulous view of Seattle. On the night we were there, Mt. Rainier was easily visible, tinted pink by the setting sun. I was also very impressed by how well organized the handling of the guests is. We arrived on time (with dozens of others), and were seated almost immediately. Prices are high, but this is a great venue for a special occasion.

Great views of Seattle. Restaurant at 500 Feet up Space Needle, spins every 43 minutes, so get views in all directions. Also have access to the observation deck when done with meal.
Limited menu, 3 course brunch. Food was good, but you aren't really just there for the cuisine.
The waitstaff were all knowledgeable as to what you were looking at and pointed out several sites that would have been missed otherwise.
Overall Great Experience

This is my second time coming from Portland to dine at the Space Needle. I thought it was great, but it could have been better. Why not warm the bread in the bread basket? It makes it so much better than cold bread. Also, we ordered three chicken dishes that were so big that all three individuals had to ask for a to-go box. This is in no way a criticism. I on the other hand ordered a dish that cost about $13 more which was basically just a piece of very delicious halibut with some vegetable garnishes. Would it have been so hard to add something filling such as some mashed potatoes or pasta? I would have been happy to have the same linguine with vegetables as the rest of my party. So I spent a fortune on dinner and went home to have a snack. Bummer.

We were disappointed that the brunch menu was not on the Web site. It gave a lunch menu, so we expected to eat lunch. So when we arrived, we were given brunch menus, which cost more than we were expecting to spend. Nonetheless, it was gorgeous, delicious, and did not disappoint!

I expect to pay more for the view at SkyCity, but I also expect to get a decent meal. That was not the case on this visit. The waiter took the trouble to ask how well the king salmon should be cooked, but delivered it well-done (dry with plenty of charcoal) nonetheless. Even the halibut was baked to have a dry layer on top that required a knife to cut. The exceptionally long time it took for our main course to be delivered gave ample opportunity for the over-cooking it got.

We celebrated my niece's 13th birthday. The food was excellent, and the view was amazing. Our server was excellent, and she made the occasion perfect with the birthday card and ice cream with dry ice and a candle for my niece to blow out. We had an incredible time.

While we absoultly LOVED the food (try the fish and chips....yummy) and the view was EXCEPTIONAL we were very disappointed that it was not handicapped accessible. We used the valet service which was reasonably priced and quick (nice friendly staff!). But once up in the dining room it was impossible to get to the restrooms without climbing stairs. That task simply can not be done if you are in a wheel chair, use a walker or even just a cane. All in all though we will be back!

My two sisters from Indiana and Arizona were visiting (we hadn't seen each other in person for 44 years) and had never been to the Space Needle. They were thrilled with the whole experience. Thank you for a very memorable day.

Obviously, this restaurant is notable for its view, and more, for its changing view as the restaurant rotates. I suggest to plan the dinner time to be confortably seated during sunset; still better, during full Moon, to view also moonrise. Seeing Mount Rainier is also a must, as it is seeing Seattle. Having a good dinner is also important, and this happens, since the food is well-prepared and options exist for all tastes. Service is very good. Room is a little bit noisy at certain times. Prices are high, it is true, but the ambiance is charming. I recommend to go there at least once.

The food was pretty good, although fairly expensive. The kids menu was WAY overpriced. $15 for what you could get at a regular restaurant for $6 or $7. My daughter ordered a hamburger with tomatoes on it, which they forgot. When we asked for them, the waiter brought out two slices, both the tops of the tomatoes with the stem bit still in them. Lame.
