Going, going, gone...

Recently 7 members of my family and I lunched at Skates on the Bay. I was a little apprehensive, as my last two meals weren't appetizing, but Skates is a great halfway point for us all to meet. 4 of us ordered the crabcakes, served with bok choy and a ""plum sauce"". The crab cakes on there own were half way decent, but were completly soaked with the water from the bok choy and the sauce which was made in the styl... view more

One of the most overrated resto in the Bay Area... purportedly with great views, but on a foggy night (which happens quite often) you wont see anything. Everything was expensive, and my duck was too salty, too tough, and too greasy.

Slow service on a Sunday afternoon !

A friend and I decided to stop in for a glass of wine after a walking . This was around 2:00 PM on a Sunday afternoon, while she was freshing up I got us a table in the bar.\r \r The waitstaff and bar tenders were not interested in serving; why I don't know? I notice that the food servers were inexperienced with handling large orders and suffer from lack of etiquette. Another food server was trying to be a balancin... view more

This is one of the best restau...

This is one of the best restaurants I've even been to. Never had a bad meal. The food, the ambiance, the service...always above & beyond

No Follow Through

This is to follow up on an earlier review. We ate at Skates on Sept. 3, 2007 and had a very poor experience which we detailed in that review ('Nightmarish Experience for Newlyweds'. )\r I wanted to create a special night for my new bride and myself and planned the evening to make that happen. Their neglect of our reservation, wait time and patience ruined the ambiance I had wanted. We did not get to enjoy the vie... view more

Very Un-Special Service for Newlyweds

They provided a nightmarish & very un-special experience for newlyweds!! Skates has been a favorite of ours for years & we decided it would be perfect for our first ""married"" dinner out. We made our reservations more than a week ahead of time. We specified that we were newlyweds and we would like a window table. We arrived 45 minutes before our dinner reservation so we could enjoy appetizers & drinks in the bar... view more

Great sushi

Yes the ahi tuna sushi is fantastic. The service was very unsatisfactory.When our server served us,she very sarcasticly said ""Enjoy!"" Then, directly after our dishes were delivered, the young lady who served us went up to another waitress and said something directing her attention to our table. She did this with 2 other waitresses that i witnessed who all looked directly at our table as well.The girls all laughed a... view more

Horrible Service, Great Appetizers, $$$

We had reservations so we got seated right away, but it took the server over 25 minutes to acknowledge us. Ordered the Skates Classic Sampler and it was great, but the price not so much. For $21 you were able to have a taste of three awesome appetizers. For an entree I ordered the New York Steak and it was horrible. I ordered it medium well and it came way past well done. I mean this thing was burnt. I thought ... view more

great views, but EXPENSIVE

The food here is decent, but way too expensive.... you could find better seafood in the Bay Area for much less money. The view is beautiful, but not worth the prices. The decor could use an update.

Great view and service, good food

Obviously you're coming here for the view. I've been here several times, and the service has been great. Each server has been attentive but not overbearing. Would be better if they personally knew the menu in detail and could make definite suggestions, but whatever. The food has been pretty good, not great. I suppose it is slightly overpriced if you look at it that way. My personal thing is that I'm going here for th... view more
