Bar Crudo - Divisadero St
Hot SpotGlad we had made a reservation! It's a crowded place and many people standing along the walls waiting for a table. The waitstaff was busy, so sometimes we waited, but when they got to us they were very pleasant and accommodating. The beer list is fantastic, and we had fun trying different ones. We had the butterfish, which was very good, and the whole bass which was just mediocre. But the highlight was the Crudo for two. Afterwards, we both agreed that we would have enjoyed just having several plates of that for dinner (but that would have been even more expensive....it's pricey). Since it is VERY noisy, I'm not sure I would recommend for a romantic evening or date night. Good place to go with friends, a hot spot. A hip, good-looking crowd.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Fish in SFJust love the beautifully prepared fresh fish, great beer selection and friendly service. Only wish it was quiet enough to hear one's dining partners.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite go-toMy girlfriend and I found Bar Crudo on a whim when we yelped new places to try oysters, our favorite dinner food. This was one of the top hits, and proved to be well worth the reservation. Fresh food with unique pairings, a very friendly and responsive staff, and a relaxed, romantic ambiance! We have been back three times since our first visit about a month ago! The oysters and crudo raw sampler are a must when they have all of the items in stock. Their arctic char is delicious, whether it be in their starter salad or entree. The lobster beet salad is another great starter. My personal favorite dish, however, is their mussels entree. Perfectly prepared with an amazing tomato garlic sauce.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a Tasty treat!Loved the crudos, lobster, and assorted oysters, all in a fun/hip/trendy setting!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMost exciting dinner in a long timeeven though it was all seafood, every dish was kept fresh and had a twist that would surprise you. Would definitely go back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatest crab I've ever eatenMy boyfriend and I were visiting from Toronto, and heard good things about this place online. Once we arrived, the vibe was energetic, and intimate. We ordered the crab, and I have to say, it was the best crab we ever had. I also enjoyed the lobster and beet salad. Everything about this place was wonderful!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!I came here for dinner with my parents and boyfriend, and the experience was awesome! From the food to the excellent staff, who are extremely attentive, friendly and quick...
I love this place!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMhappy hour heaveni make reservations for happy hour (you have to) because it's the best happy hour value for the quality of food.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Date NightThe restaurant is fairly small, cramped even, on the 1st level. Luckily we were provided with a table in the loft. Make reservations! It was packed. Loved the ambiance, although at one point later in the evening the noise grew rather loud because of a couple of boisterous tables. We ordered oysters, char, whole crab, and seafood chowder. The Char was my favorite--subtly paired with creme fraiche, a sprig of dill, and what I think was wasabi roe. The condiments (cocktail sauce and a Mignonette sauce) for the oysters and crab, were delicious. Everything was fairly simple, but so good. Pleasantly surprised by the extensive beer list. The menu is pricey, but given the quality of food, service, and ambiance we'd definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI like it rawI have not been in Bar Crudo for a while, but I had out of towners who wanted seafood, and there was no doubt in my mind Bar Crudo was the place. The crudo sampler is one of the best SF dishes. Thank you for delivering!
The food was excellent, and although the wine we had was great, the only disappointment was the poor selection of local and California/West Coast wines on the list. Still, I can't wait to go back for the cooked part of the menu!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!Awesome place, been here many times. The food and the service are awesome, very fresh. Only complaint is that the noise is too loud. They really should put some noise dampeners in that place5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHopping place...A variety of seafood that will delight your palate in numerous ways is served at this very unpretentious, yet lively restaurant. We were there right at the open and the whole place filled up quickly. I'm sure that the happy hour specials had something to do with it. All items were delicious. Great vibe about the place and we had a delightful conversation with a local couple sitting to our right. Excellent people watching restaurant. If you can get a seat at the bar (we couldn't) do it. Great view of the chefs. definitely would go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 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 AMDon't go if you don't likeDon't go if you don't like raw and or seafood in general. This is the best and the freshest for good raw and creative preparations. This time we were able to take advantage of the Happy Hour offerings. A really good deal and until 6:30 PM on Sunday. Nice !!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBar Crudo still rocks outBar Crudo still rocks out tasty seafood combinations. Love the happy hour special. And the service is great. Only minus is the really noisy space on the 2nd floor. the noise reverbs off the ceiling up there.4/24/2013 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 AMEverything is so fresh andEverything is so fresh and I'm especially fond of the San Sebastian dish: oil poached tuna served chilled finished with a bit of lemon juice, served with roasted red peppers, capers, chilled potato slices and warm, thick grilled and somewhat charred bread. Sublime.4/18/2013 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. It was all mouthwatering and delicious! We are planning on going for the happy hour today for a friends birthday. They have a lot of great beer to choose from as well.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, and one of theAmazing food, and one of the great values in this city(for that quality). 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.
