Tips from the Net @ SkyCity Restaurant

The positives are plentiful. First off, the panoramic view is obviously unbelievable. The entire area, including Mt. Rainer if it's a clear evening/day. The restaurant rotates fast enough so you don't get bored with your view, but slow enough so you don't "feel" it moving. All of the seats see the windows/view well, but we were seated on the window. The service was outstanding - very attentive but not overbearing. The food we ordered (prime rib/scallops/clam chowder) were outstanding. The prices were a bit high, but in my opinion very worth it. They were actually less expensive than the Metropolitan Grill but much better in quality. They also have a photographer that takes pictures of the guests at their tables. At first I thought it was one of those where they try to sell it to you at an outrageous price....but I was wrong! They take the picture and give you access to it on the internet for free! Just an extra touch to make the experience even better. The only downside was their reservations process. I used open table, and it said the only openings were at 4:30 pm or after 8:30 pm. We took the early one, but there were several available tables until at least 6 pm when we finished our meal. Not sure why that happened, but if that's the worst part of it that tells you how much we enjoyed it. GooglePlace - February 2017

The food was delicious. I had the salmon on a bed of lentils which was a very good combination. I had the Chocolate Pot de Creme which is fantastic if you like chocolate. Of course the views were great as is expected. GooglePlace - February 2017

The food and view were very enjoyable, but the service was so disappointing. We chose to celebrate our first night of our honeymoon in Seattle at SkyCity thinking it would be a fun place to feel pampered with great service and food. When you pay the prices this restaurant charges, you expect good service. We received very attentive service from the gentleman (Jose) who refilled our water and cleared our plates, but our waiter (TC) was only somewhat attentive early on (typically as he asked us if we wanted something else to drink) then he seemed to forget we were one of his tables. We saw him serve tables near us, without even acknowledging us. We had to ask Jose to help us get the bill. And once TC brought it and took our card to charge it, he took over 10 minutes to return it. During that time he came to the table right next to us 4 times: taking their order, bringing their soups, and addressing drink orders. I finally was able to get his attention to request he bring our card back so we could get back to our hotel room. After the long day of traveling to Seattle, we were tired and frustrated to be pushing for service. Also, I expected him to ask if we were celebrating anything special, which he never did. I've had great experiences here celebrating my parents' birthdays over the last 11 years, which is why this was such a disappointment for our honeymoon. I was so excited to celebrate the start of our life together here and make it a special place we could come back to for anniversaries to celebrate, but now I'm unsure if it's worth it.

I ordered the 3 course meal razor clam chowder, the salmon, and the creme brulee for dessert. They did not seem very busy first thing to come out was my salmon, so I asked the server wasn't I supposed to get the clam chowder first she said she was very sorry and brought it out to me with my main course no big deal. The other people I was with ordered their dessert but yet again the server forgot my dessert, I shared some of my guests dessert and decided not to say anything and left the service was horrible. The view was great, and the food was cooked perfect but that is the only good thing I can say about this restaurant GooglePlace - January 2017

Scenery - 8 Customer Service - 10 Food - 3 Price - $$$ The view was great, although we got an inside table and not against the window. We did try to peek past the table next to us. Customer Service was great, friendly and cheerful. But for the price that I paid the food was not good at all, I would have been more satisfied grabbing some food at the pine market while we were there.(which I recommend to anyone who reads this.)
