Bar Crudo - Divisadero St
Great food... Questionable service.I love Bar Crudo and come quite often. The food is incredible but a few times I have felt the host used some questionable tactics. Most recently I waited an additional 20 minutes after we had arrived for our 8pm reservation. Mean while multiple tables got sat before us. A few weeks ago the host asked if my boyfriend and I "would be done in an hour," since she had a reservation coming in. Rude. The rest of the staff is great but I've been troubled by the 2 hosts a few times now.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest lobster beet salad ever!!Best lobster beet salad ever!! Huge beer selection! We went on a Friday night and it was PACKED - luckily we had reservations and were seated immediately. The noise level is high which didn't bother us but it may some people. It actually helped keep our conversation private because the tables are very close (it is a small place). Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Reasonable prices too.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really love Bar Crudo,We really love Bar Crudo, the food is great! The flavors, the presentation, and the service are all what you would hope for when dining out in San Francisco. It was great to be in a fun lively restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered the crudo sampler,We ordered the crudo sampler, the lobster beet salad, and the trout.

I could literally eat everything on that menu, and plan to over time.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHadn't been here in years,Hadn't been here in years, so brought my new BF for a celebratory dinner. (We did raise the average age a couple decades.) Bar Crudo was even better than I remembered. We slurped down some oysters, went crazy for the arctic char crude, noted the too-few-squid in the squid salad (which was otherwise good), and thoroughly enjoyed the butterfish and mussels from the hot dishes. Had never seen as lengthy a beer list. Mmmm. Deafening noise, but fun vibe and excellent service.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was delicious.Everything was delicious. I highly recommend the chowder and the Crudo Sampler!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. AmbianceExcellent food. Ambiance is OK. Service is fast but if you are sitting upstairs there may be some delay. We loved the food.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMthe service and food werethe service and food were fantastic! we will certainly return we enjoyed everything..3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful yummyWe really enjoyed our dinner, a mix of raw, cold and hot cooked dishes. The ingredients were fresh, and the dishes beautifully presented. Our favorite of the evening was the raw Ono dish. The seafood chowder was rich and flavorful, though perhaps over-bacon'd and slightly more salty than we would have preferred. The chocolate truffles offered for desert were a tasty bite to finish.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMore seafood chowder PLEASE!More seafood chowder PLEASE! The food is unbelievably good. The only thing that may be a negative for some is that the noise level is beyond loud. My friend and I were laughing because we had to shout to be heard. I love the place though and would go back again and again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, lots of energyGreat food, lots of energy but prepare to wait (even with a reservation!)3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood and service.Great seafood and service. Noise was an issue for us older neighborhood folks, but we now expect the volume up with the younger crowd. Enjoyable none the less.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were welcomed immediatly.We were welcomed immediatly. The manager Jen was amazing and the whole staff was very friendly. We took forever and ordered one course at a time, so our adorable waiter eventually lost interest, but the rest of the staff covered our table pretty well.
The food was great and the prices were reasonable. I look forward to going back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat chowder and great mussels.Great chowder and great mussels. Very good odd beer list.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
