Seattle Weekly's Description

Critics have been joking about the correlation between altitude and prices since architects first had the gall to put revolving restaurants atop skyscrapers. The punch line still gets a laugh at SkyCity, where a plate of salmon costs as much as a DVD player. Is it worth it? Probably not at sea level, but the view from the Space Needle is still a must-do. Most of the food has a fake-fancy, cruise ship cuisine pall, with the exception of the fabulous Lunar Orbiter, a wacky dry ice dessert that's been on the menu since 1962. Lose yourself in its vapor and breathe in Seattle's high-tech dreams.

    Send notes to other diners on the windowsill :)

  • SeattleMonorail on 08/17/11

    Restaurant at the top of the Space Needle - it slowly moves 360 degrees so you can see the entire city. Elevator ride and O-deck admission are complimentary when you eat here.

  • Tim K. on 09/22/09

    It's a little pricey here, but if you can time it right and catchbthe sunset over Seattle - it's worth every penny.
