I toke my wife to this place for
Valintine's day dinner. The dining room and table was very bland. No decoration or even a single flower on any tables. Not romantic at all. The menu was a fixed menu with very little choices. The food was very average like what you would get from Denny's."

Awful from start to finish. We
were seated promptly in the patio. It had been enclosed with thin walls, which made it more like a shed than a dining area. It was not insulated so it got very chilly. We asked THREE times to have the torch nearby lit. It never did get lit so we ate with our coats on. It was valentines day at 6PM, which means a very limited menu. It still took almost an hour to be served. The people who were seated at the same time we were had started their dessert when we got our dinner. Ordered the lamb. The entire lamb eating world eats lamb with mint jelly. When we asked for mint jelly the waitress looked at us like we were Martians, then came back with jalapeño sauce. All that for only $170 for two people. Never again!"

As usual we loved the food and the
service. Filimon is our favorite waiter and always does a great job. The Bruce Stevenson band was playing that night in the banquet room and they were "Rocking Good"."

Our waiter was not cut for this
line of business. Not only did he not smile, he seemed like he didn't want to be there!"

This was the third year we have
held our Holiday Dinner here. The food is good and the service is great. The menu has enough variety to please everyone in our group. We have a small company group (14) so it can be difficult to find restaurants that work well for Company functions. We were dining in a small dining room with just our group and the door could be closed to provide a quieter and more personal experience. We are looking forward to having our 2014 Holiday Dinner here as well."

I wouldn't call the restaurant bad
but I wouldn't bother going back either. Mainly a meat place and I had fish, but no Tartar sauce and no cocktail sauce (Maria Rose) really!"
Dined on 1/13/2014
the food is good, not great, but
good. My halibut was a bit overcooked but otherwise quite good. Nice salad comes with it. So though the prices seem a bit high, since you get soup or salad as well as a starch and vegetable, it is a good deal. As long as you stay out of the bar, it is quiet. A good place for after a play at Ohlone."

I have came here many times before
and never had an issue. For some reason this time (not sure if it was arriving late at 7pm was too late?) a bunch of the dishes that i would normally order were OUT! I was kind of amazed that a restaurant of this quality was out of food. I could imagine if it was 1 item, but there was at least 1-2 items from each food area that was out of stocked. When i asked for Prime Rib, there was None. When i asked about Oysters, there was none. I also asked about a Fish, and was told it was out also. It very frustrating going to a restaurant to order your favorites and they are out. The food quality and service was amazing however. Me and my wife both had Filet Mignon since there was nothing else to really order."

We were seated right away and
everyone was really friendly,except for our server.... it didnt seem as though it was his personality to be friendly. The food was excellent but over priced. the music was too loud, i felt as though i was eating in a dance club. so if you dont care about the noise it is a must go to!!"
Dined on 1/10/2014
For the price the food was at best
fair. We both had the ribeye steak and for almost $40/plate was really pretty bad. Didn't finish and wasn't worth taking home. Salad was OK, didn't have any soups so can't comment. The steak was so bad we didn't have desert there, Went somewhere else. We won't be back."
Dined on 1/5/2014
The evening started off great
until the seating of my party came. The location of me and my family was fair at best , Due to the restaurant being crowded, dining families with children were seated in the patio location. The patio location would be great in the summer time , not in the winter ! Management nor the servers did not compensate the diners eating with jackets while enjoying their meals. The suggestion would be that making sure that everyone has a great dining experience !"

We were not disappointed when on
New Years Eve we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Spin a Yarn. I had a rare slice of their famous prime rib, my wife had Beef Wellington. The flavor of their house dressing was infused in every bite of salad without being drenched and the pasta course of mushroom tortellini was surprisingly delightful. My rare, thick slice of prime rib, served with au jus and horseradish sauce was very tender and juicy. I heard no complaints from my wife as she ate her dinner. She let me have one bite of filet mignon with more of a pie crust than a bread dough covering. I almost wanted to trade. After dinner surprise, they brought out a small Happy 25th cake my daughter had made and left there. We love this place."

We went to lunch with a group of
5. Ordered a variety of items, sandwich, pasta, seafood & pork all of which was very good. We couldn't have asked for better service from a server with an outstanding personality."

I made a reservation for my son
and his three friends, all high school seniors. They were celebrating a birthday and wanted to splurge on steak. I added a note during my reservation that it is a birthday dinner and to "please take good care of the boys." And Spin a yarn staff did! The boys were surprised when a birthday cake showed up! I really appreciated the fact that they read my note and made the boys feel special. My son and his friends were very pleased. They loved the food and the service. My son who is a very selective eater said he had the best salad of his life... Thank you spin a yarn!"

My cousins and cousin-in-laws took
me out for my birthday dinner. I ordered pork chops with apples. Since this restaurant was featured in Kitchen Nightmares before I was amazed how certain restaurants that were featured in that show or Restaurant Impossible how they couldn't cook a simple thing like pork chops. Did Spin-a-Yarn succeed in cooking the pork chops? Yes. The pork chops were moist and tender. The apples added a sweet savory touch to the dish. There you have it - how comfort food like pork chops should be cooked. One last touch was that my cousins notified the server it was my birthday and I got a cheesecake on the house for dessert. This was a nice touch to my birthday dinner."

The service was great and the food
was amazing.... well most of it. I ordered the prime rib "medium." When our plates came it was rare... very rare. I'm not one to send food back in restaurants but he said he would rather make it right rather than me not enjoy it. Sadly exactly what I thought would happen, happened. They threw it in a skillet and browned each side quickly to make it look medium. Once you cut into it you knew immediately that it was still rare, but just browned. I appreciate the try and he was friendly about it the whole time. My friend's New York was amazing though. Cooked perfectly. I would still definitely still return."

We went to Spin A Yarn expecting a
great Thanksgiving buffet (based on what I was told in a phone call with the restaurant). We were extremely disappointed. Other than salad, the only vegetable in the buffet was green beans - undercooked. The buffet was heavy on starches (rice, potatoes, yams, various pastas). The turkey was clearly not from a freshly prepared bird but, rather, a preformed breast. What they were passing off as prime rib was another cut of meat - I'm not sure which cut as I passed on it when I saw that it could not have been prime rib (far too small in diameter). I've had tastier ham - it was on the dry side for ham. The carver wandered about - I had to seek him out to get a slice of ham. We will not be going back."

The food here amazing. Prime Rib
is served hot & scrumptious, the garlic served in its shell was seasoned to perfection! Beautiful Hostess & friendly Waiter... over all rating on a scale from 1 to 10? 10+"
Dined on 11/12/2013
it was perfect fabolous and
wonderful perfect 5 stars"

I am a returning customer.
Disappointed, quality went down. Prime Rib dry, flavorless and light warm. My wife Cioppino with no trace of crab leg."

This is the place to go for Prime
Rib in Fremont. Thick juicy hand cut at the table. Dinner includes soup or salad, side vegetable and potato - baked, mashed - your choice. You have a choice between the quiet front rooms or sitting in the bar area which is quite lively."

Waitress was efficient. Kinda dry
Dined on 10/13/2013
We went back to Spin A Yarn again
hoping that the poor quality of the steaks we had last time we ate there was just an aberration. However, we were very disappointed in the quality of the prime rib. This will be the last time we go there for any beef dish. The chicken special that I had was very good."

We celebrated two birthdays last
Sunday night at our favorite restaurant in Fremont,Calif. Our waiter Rico was one of a kind. He was very knowledgable of the entire menu & helped us with the wine list too. The food was amazing as usual. If you want to find a place for a romantic meal, special party or just a night out this is the place for you."
Dined on 10/7/2013
Everything was good. Good food,
good service, the waiter was attentive . I would definitely go again!"
Dined on 9/27/2013
I have to say that I was motivated
to come to this place due to Chef Ramsey's show. I was very interested in how the restaurant would be in person. It did not disappoint! The food and service was excellent. The greeter was superb!!! I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get my prime rib cut table side, but that was a very minor issue."
Dined on 9/23/2013
I think the improvements made over
the last coupe years are now getting ingrained into the culture of Spin-a-Yarn. The food is still decor and food still make for a pleasantly elegant evening in Fremont. I did find the meat could have been better prepared to match the intended cook-level (i.e. medium, medium rare, etc.) It was still all very tasty and the staff was extremely good."
Dined on 9/21/2013
The staff was fantastic!!! We
really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary there. The food & service made it very special!!"
Dined on 9/21/2013
Reserved a table for six, for late
lunch following a field trip for our team. All had steak from the dinner menu. Very friendly, helpful service. Steaks were delicious, prepared to each one's preferences. The mashed potatoes and vegetables were also excellent. Enjoyed calamari and prawns for appetizers while waiting for our meals. Salads were fresh, tasty and the dressings provided were excellent as well. Highly recommended for a special event lunch!"

We had company from out of the
area and thought we would try Spin a Yarn, reservations using open table was great and our table was ready when we arrived (didn't get requested booth).We started by ordering wine, they didn't have our first two selections! We ended settling for the house wine, waiter didn't smile once. We looked forward to the prime rib cart, they don't have it anymore! One of our prime rib dinners was ok and the other was not, not worth $30! The scallop potatoes were a block of potatoes with hard cheese on top! Poor quality food for high prices... I won't be back"

Dancing was advertised. Music was
great! There were 3 large couches in the middle of the dance floor. I asked about it, and was told they were to moved any minute. We waited 30 minutes then left."

My Wife and I dined there on
8/25/13. We heard of the restaurant through Kitchen Nightmares which I am a huge fan of the show. The Spin-a-Yarn staff really turned things around and all their food is made fresh to order. The staff are very polite And cordial and it was a pleasure to be served by them. My Wife had the seafood liguine and I had the Halibut. Both were phenomenal dishes which were preceded by the most delicious seafood chowder, the best we both ever had. I had the Chocolate Mousse and it was so good that it had me traveling to my most desired places in the world and I felt like I was actually there. It was THAT good! Get to this restaurant for one of the dining experiences of a lifetime. I WILL be back!"
Dined on 8/26/2013
This was my first time dining at
Spin a Yarn. I looked on line at there menu and was very excited about trying their food. This is a steakhouse with a very limited menu for steaks. The food was OK nothing to get about. The staff were very friendly and kept our drinks refilled. We had gift certificates, and will go back to use them up but would not recommend to friends as a great place to eat"

We ordered rye eye steak and new

Food was good. Service was good.
Bar was filled with truckers/locals. Interesting experience. Would go again...not for a romantic dinner though."

The mashed potato that came with
the filet mignon is made from powder, like what you get at fast food restaurant. The prime rib is also a letdown. This is our first and last visit."
Dined on 7/20/2013
We came here because we heard it
was a good steak house.We went there for my husbands birthday dinner.We were greeted by a waiter that seemed irritated from the start. When the food arrived it was unimpressive.We ordered the calamari as an appetizer.It was extremely bland.The sauces were pretty good & added some flavor.The side salad was extremely unimpressive.I ordered the house dressing with the crumbled blue cheese.Have had better bag salads at the grocery store. For an entrée I ordered a ciopinno.All of the seafood was dry & the sauce/soup was bland.I gave my husband a taste & he agreed.His steak was pretty good but that was the best of the evening I was very disappointed that we had chosen to spend a special occasion here."
