Much better food than expected for what in essence is a tourist hot spot.

Would recommend reserving a table before hand. Entrance to the restaurant allows you to also beat the queues of those waiting to visit the viewing platform.

The views from the tables (would recommend claiming it is your birthday so you get a better table!) are of course stunning and if you are only visiting Seattle for a short time is well worth a visit. We were very dubious about the quality of the dining experience before we arrived but the quality was much better than we expected.

Very nice way to enjoy a lazy lunch after a morning in the centre of Seattle. It is by no means particularly good value, but what do you expect in such a place.

I went there a while ago and I don't remember much of the food. It was good but not awesome. However the views are spectacular and since the food is not bad, it is worth doing it at least once.

Took my girlfriend here for a surprise birthday dinner. What a great experience. It was delicious and fun to be on top of the "world" while eating dinner. I would highly recommend this but make sure you make a reservation. Also order the lunar Orbitor for a dessert. It was fascinating how they made it and brought it out to the table.

Major landmarks, such as Seattles Space Needle seldom have great resturants. Sky City located in the Space Needle is a happy exception. Reservations are a must. A great stop for lunch or dinner. If you make a reservation you don't have to pay the entry fee to the Space Needle, and you get the fast elevator to the resturant. The resturant makes one revolution per hour so relax and plan two hours for lunch or dinner and enjoy the spectacular views and great food.

Great view on a clear day but almost no one there. The photo taken at the start is not only quite good but available very quickly.
