If you don't already know: there is a minimum food & beverage for meals. You can't just go in for dessert & a coffee. Due to the price & menu options, we decided to do lunch & still spent quite a bit of money. It was my birthday lunch & on vacation, so we splurged. We ordered the Dunegrass Crab... More

My husband and I were in Seattle visiting our son and his girlfriend and on the spur of the moment, after a lovely Argosy boat trip through the locks in Ballard, decided to try our luck on a reservation at Sky City, the restaurant at the top of the Space Needle. We were able to get a 5PM reservation and... More

I have eaten dinner here before and wasn't that impressed. But, had Sat. brunch here and was excellent in every way! The staff was so friendly and helpful. It was a 3 course meal, and the food was excellent. Included juice, coffee, and muffins with your meal. Of course I added on a Bloody Mary which was perfect!, every time... More

We went here to celebrate my birthday. The atmosphere was awesome. I loved how the restaurant revolved and our scenery constantly changed. My husband really enjoyed his meal. I didn't like mine but the waiter was very helpful and wanted to try to make things right. I really appreciated all he did for me. This was a memorable birthday experience... More

Celebrated our belated Valentine & early Birthday. Fantastic twilight and after dark views even though the day was overcast and rainy. Staff all very friendly especially Brenda our server. Twilight always a good time to go as you get so many aspects of light and darkness. Expensive but well worth it!

It's a great "experience" thing to do...once. Kids LOVE it, they love that it spins around and they can pass notes along the railing and the Santa's breakfast is very cool. The restaurant has a great view but that's where the excitement stops. The food is below average, at best, and the service wasn't great either. The dishes are way... More

I took 4 co-workers here for dinner. This was their first trip to Seattle so dinner at Sky City is a great way to experience the iconic Space Needle. We arrived 1/2 hour early as advised and went to the observation deck to experience the view. Awesome. It was a clear night and we could see for miles. We were... More

A must see...print your vouchers though! And get there early. We took the monorail over and if it's clear you can see Mt Rainer. We got a drink and sat up top and talked and just enjoyed the view(waiting for the rain to stop) then went over to Chihuly Garden...nice few hours of getting a feel and layout of the... More

The dining level is kinda cool. The inside is retro 60s like when it first opened right down to the piano bar. The seating area rotates while your eating so you get to see everything from the mountains to the bay. Kinda cool tradition is to write a note on a piece of paper and set it on the part... More
