One of the best steaks I have ever had - and I'm fussy! The quality of the food and service is excellent and you are expected to at least make the effort to appear neat and tidy, although not everybody does. It is an expensive restaurant but you don't begrudge it when you try the food. As the saying goes... More

We have been twice, once for lunch with out of town visitors and once for a milestone birthday celebration. It is a great experience - the views are great and the food and service were much better than we expected both times. The prices are high but when you consider that you do not have to buy a separate Space... More

This is one of the must do attractions in Seattle: go to the space needle. Just getting to the deck might not be cheap if you're a large family or big group but what most people don't know is that you can access the deck from the restaurant and thus can enjoy a good lunch or dinner at the top...

Given it is a tourist trap I was not expecting much quality for the meal. We were pleasantly surprised. A small selection on a preset menu for a high price but you do get an amazing view. The quality of the food was above average plus they had free picture taking and live piano music. Service was good. We would... More

I was overseas for my 50th birthday away from my family in the Caribbean for 14 months, then, we all moved cats, lock, stock amd barrel to my hometown of Seattle. So OF COURSE, I had a birthday to make up for :-). We decided on lunch at the Space Needle not only because my Mom was pregnant with my... More

Went for the view and to continue our series of eating in all the revolving restaurants we find worldwide. The Space Needle is an iconic and historic structure therefore a potential "tourist trap", but actually not at all bad. Booking the Skycity restaurant also gives VIP/fast track access to the viewing gallery on the floor immediately above, with its tacky... More

Most of the time a restaurant on top of an icon might not serve the best food since one is mainly there for the view. However, this restaurant serves a brunch that matches any served in a great restaurant. The brunch menu has several choices for the starter (we had razor clam chowder (excellent), the entree -we chose Dungeness crab... More

Just drinks and an awesome desert. We were here and wanted to get desert but we're way to full. Came back to get the dry ice-ice cream. Love this place.
