WOW... Their steaks are incredible. I don't know what the chef uses for seasoning but it was simply delicious. The decor is elegant and the restaurant is not as pricy as some people led me to believe. I actually paid about $40 per person but received huge portions. BTW, $40 for a huge steak dinner with a huge salad and desert is very reasonable now-a-days. Everyone in my party of 8 was pleased. The staff is probably a bunch of students from St. John's, but who cares - the food was delivered on time. I was surprised that there weren't more people there, only a handful of tables were occupied. Ample parking was available (Thursday, 7 PM). We were the last to leave so the owner played guitar and sang for us.

Skewers is a relatively new Glatt Kosher steakhouse--part of the growing cluster of Kosher restaurants and food stores near the Hillcrest Jewish Center, one of the principal synagogues of Queens.

The menu appears to be an encomium to the multi-cultural composition of the borough. Appetizers include Asian-inspired items like peanut chicken, samosas and satay, Italian stuffed mushrooms and a traditional Middle Eastern platter of dips and pita. We tried empanadas, which bore little resemblance to the flaky turnovers served in the South American communities of Queens. The Skewers' version consisted of ping pong ball-sized spheres stuffed with a spicy chopped beef and onion mixture. They were quite good. And what was called a baby green mixed salad was an extremely generous portion of tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers and greens in a creamy house dressing, served in a deep wooden bowl.

Our Steak Delmonico was seasoned with an inventive dry rub and came off a charcoal grill. It was excellent. The side of mashed potatoes suffered from the chef's timidity with garlic.

Don't try to order a glass of wine with your meal. Skewers doesn't have a liquor license, but staffers say they're working on one.

Among the half-dozen desserts, what was billed as a sugarless apple pie was actually superb with the sweetness of the apples and notes of cinamon making for a very nice conclusion to the meal.

On our visit the dining room was clean, the restaurant attractive and what the wait staff lacked in professionalism it made up for in its enthusiasm.

We dined on the Sunday evening of the Labor Day weekend and the restaurant was virtually empty. If there was one down note it was a scrum of employees chosing our visit as the time to experiment with the sound system, rapidly changing the music selections from bubble gum rock to classical and back again, as though the diners were invisible.

Pros: Inventive menu, good steak.

Cons: Lack of liquor license

The food was ok, better than average. However, the service was bad. It took probably 10 minutes to be greeted by the waiter when we first sat down, the service was slow in general/understaffed and the waiters seemed like beginners. Asked the waiter/helpers for something twice and they still forgot to bring it, like our drinks. Ended up paying in cash so we didn't have to wait 10 minutes for them to process our credit card. The restaurant also felt unclean. Hapisgah is still the way to go if you want a solid kosher steakhouse in Queens.
