SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle Ratings and Reviews

The view is amazing! But, let's face it, you can't eat the view. The $74 prix fixe menu offered few choices, and 2 of us ordered the beef brochettes with much anticipation. Even though we ordered medium rare, we were told they were coming out "closer to medium." They were actually closer to medium well; dry, chewy, and flavorless. Our server was wonderful, so we didn't complain, but decided this meal was not worth the trouble. Next time, I'll pay for the ticket up, and eat at the outdoor grill!

Fabulous views and reasonably priced good food. The Kobo beef salad was wonderful and the house Merlot was very good. Service was perfect , attentive but never intrusive. The SkyCity restaurant is actually very good value for money as the Space Needle charge $27 per adult just to visit the observation deck. A good lunch for $50 per head begins to look like a bargain , especially when you consider the breathtaking views and history of the site.

I'm a local who likes to bring visitors who come to our area. This visit was disappointing . It was way too crowded and noisy, practically sitting next to another table, I could have followed their conversation easily. I did not enjoy our lunch . I've been to Sky City enough to know it does not have to be this way. Sorry.

We've gone a few times this summer as we've had out of state guest visiting. The view speaks for itself. The food and drink selections have been great. The staff has been really friendly making a special destination even better. Might be nice if they provided a little map highlighting some of the sights. Overall - really fun outing.

Surprisingly excellent food and service along with a great view. When you deduct the $20 just going to the observation deck would cost ( included with meals) the restaurant is a bargain.Great fish and chips, crab salad,chicken and salmon. A real winner
My salade nicoise was beautifully presen ...
My salade nicoise was beautifully presented and filled with fresh ingredients. There was no dressing, though, except on the greens below. This is a dilemma - presentation vs. taste. The beautifully arranged ingredients were bland (green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, mushrooms, hard-boiled eggs, etc.) although the olives were fine and fortunately pitted. I fought valiantly to mix the bland ingredients into the dressed greens, but it was mostly a losing battle. I have a solution to this dilemma; in fact two. (1) Serve a small cup of the dressing with the salad. I should have asked for that, but when I'm served extra dressing, I usually blob too much on one part and not enough on the other. (2) Even better, have the salad chef drizzle dressing over the bland ingredients - not just one serving, but over as many as may be served during one sitting - before they are arranged on the plate.

Mediocre food, low-class clientele. We were disappointed upon walking in. It clearly states on the website that formal attire is required, yet people in jeans, baseball hats and with children walk in. The other thing is the food...I get the pretty view - if you are fine with paying 100+ per person and eating food that tastes like it comes from a pre-made buffet, then go for it. The only great thing was the bottle of wine we ordered that was reasonably priced, and surprisingly good.
Next time we will save our $250 for a place where we actually can get decent food.

Great service, we were seated right away and the waitress was friendly and attentive. Amazing view, quite the experience. The food was good but not the best out there but mostly you are going for the spectacular view. Would definitely recommend. Oh yea the gift shop is great !

We ended our vacation with dinner at SkyCity Restaurant, and to celebrate my birthday. The view of course was amazing. The food was delicious and our server was excellent. The tables on each side were families with children. One side was a couple with four very well behaved children. The other side was a couple with two children. One of those literally screamed the entire time they were in the restaurant. We have children and grandchildren. We go to restaurants with them often. We were extremely disappointed they were not asked to take the child out until he calmed down or to leave. It ruined our evening.

Enjoyed our birthday treat lunch at the SkyCity restaurant. My wife always enjoys the lunch as that is were I proposed to her a number of years ago. Pam, our waiter, was friendly and right on with service. Assistant server kept the water glasses full and table bussed. The restaurant does a brunch from Friday to Monday with a lunch menu on Tuesday to Thursday. Brunch is a three course presentation for $50. Remember that a trip to the observation deck is $22. Clam chowder was hot and had numerous clams and bacon bits. Crab Fritatta was hot with good amount of crab and served with potatoes, but maybe a little over done. Burger was massive and would need to be done medium or medium well with size. Shrimp louie had numerous additions along with a good amount of shrimp. Dessert was the cobbler and it was excellent with ice cream served hot. Total for three including tip was $200. For the service and view it is well worth it.
Remember part of the charge is the trip up so take $60 away from the cost.
Our place for great memories. They gave Jan a birthday card to remember her day, a special treat.
Pam thanks for a great job of serving!

The view is the biggest selling point for the restaurant, cannot be beat. Fantastic views of Seattle form the rotation. Food was good and service was also good . Cost was a bit pricey, but being on top of the Space Needle is worth it . A must go to place if in Seattle .

Amazing experience from start to finish. All the staff was bright and welcoming. Our server asked where we were from and engaged us while at the table and even had dessert sent over as we were vacationing. Very pleasant experiance

I've been to the SkyCity Restaurant at the Space Needle many times, and have never been disappointed. The food, service, and view are outstanding. Entertaining friends and family from out of town is always a special dining experience.

This place is definitely one of the bucket list items. Views of Seattle, mountains are stunning. Nothing special about the food. I ordered a tomahawk stake rare and it came done. I still enjoyed it. It was very nice, but it's a stake. I would expect history from such place. Similar to Jose Andres America Eats Tavern or something of that type. I think that Sky City must do better on their menu items to bring more american vibe to it. Ice cream with fog is definitely a must if you have kids. Wines are all from WA state and they are good. I really enjoyed spark man chardonnay.

We traveled from IL and our party of 4 was thrilled with the experience. The entire wait staff were terrific and you don't see that in a lot of restaurants. This is on top of the extra work they need to do to handle the spinning. I have no idea how to fix, but some sound absorption would be the only thing that would improve on Sky City.

The event from reservations to reception was smooth. The view is spectacular despite a somewhat cloudy day. The menu was great and the wait staff met every expectation. The food had great variety was well presented. Great experience!

We took our son to Seattle to drop him off for College. He will attend the University Of Washington this year! What a way to start his experience, than at the Space Needle Restaurant! It was the best evening! Everything was perfect!

I traveled 3 hours with husband and daughter to celebrate my birthday at SkyCity and did not regret the decision. The view breathtaking and the service was as good, if not better, than the view.
We had a wonderful experience. Thank You

I took two out of town visitors, one of whom had never been to Seattle. We drove straight from the airport to Friday Brunch to start their afternoon. One of our party needed gluten free and our server knew every gluten free option on the menu and what dishes could be modified to give even more choices(so sorry that I didn't commit her name to memory as she was excellent). Everything was fresh and fabulous. Proportions were good and it was a wonderful experience. i didn't initially know that the price included the tour of the needle and observation deck also- this made it a great deal.
