The price per person for the set brunch menu was steep until you considered it included the observation deck as well. Our waiter was so informative as he pointed out sights while we slowly rotated high above Seattle. The views, the waiter, and the food...More

Went for brunch. $52 seems high for brunch but you get to bypass the normal lines and not pay the normal viewing fee. Go hungry the portions are big. Avoid the prime rib. The eggs benedict and anything with crab are best options. Kids meals...More

The Space Needle Sky City was a great place to visit on my fifteenth wedding anniversary. The dining experience was great. Quiet cozy atmosphere. Wait staff attentive but not over bearing. Food was fresh and innovative. Views were spectacular.

Though lines can be long in summer, this is a good all family place to visit. If you want to eat at the restaurant and swirl around for the view, reservations are needed most of the time. It's casual dining, and equal $$ for other...More

Dinner question:it says $50. per person minimum. Our family of four (two teenage boys) have reservations. I'm sure my husband and I will spend $200. for just the two of us. I can't see my boys wanting anything except cheeseburgers & fries. Does it all average out?

My son and I had a fabulous steak meal, with dessert, for just over $225. I don't think you will have a problem spending $50 for each of your son's. If they are like my boys, they are bottomless pits when it comes to food... More

If the iron flat steak is on the menu that would be my choice again. The few times we have been everything tasted really good. All else fails experiment.

We will be going there in June for the end of our trip out west and would really like to arrange our dinner to coincide with hopefully a sunset. Having said that, can we make reservations to assure window seating and what would be the best time to reserve to possibly see the sunset if it isn't raining?
