Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter was very knowledgable. Great service. Tons of specials. Very happy with both meals. It's a little above "average" pricing, so it won't be a regular place for us but will definitely hit it up from time to time. The only "negative" is the couple next to us asked their waiter one question and he blabbed non-stop for 10 minutes. No...literally...10 minutes. It was annoying/funny. After he left, all four of us looked at each other in amazement and had to laugh about it. Anyway, great place."

  • "Excellent food and service. Generous toppings on the pizzas. Delicious pasta and gnocchi. Worth the drive from Plano. I wish it was in my neighborhood."

  • "Crudo continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area. They are consistently good with their cuisine and service. They really go out of their way to make you feel llike a special customer."

  • "I had the seasonal Copper River Salmon. It was delectable and I recommend it. The wife had the trusty tenderloin steak (filet) which is always unreal quality for the price point. The drinks are premium priced and great. Crudo is small/intimate and a little crowded inside, meaning the tables are close together, but the ambiance is classy and subdued to compensate. We find the service consistently consultative and excellent. The close-to-home location makes it so we don't have to venture into Addison for great top-tier food. Stating the obvious, you should save room and share a dessert. Oh my. Goodbye, socks! ;)"

  • "This was our first experience at Crudo & we were not disappointed. The menu has selections from creative to "meat and potatoes" so it can fit a variety of taste. We tend to like more creative food so it was nice to find a restaurant in Plano that is trying to expand the suburban pallet. The specials; watermelon, feta, & cucumber salad with a balsamic reduction and the salmon with a wild berry reduction were very good. The sommelier and our waiter were both excellent, making recommendations without being pushy. We had a very nice experience and will return to Crudo soon. This is one of only a handful of individually owned/operated dinner restaurants in Plano – we like to support non-chain restaurants."

  • "Great neighborhood restaurant. The food was great and the ambience is nice. Our server was nice, but wasn't a great listener and did way too much talking. The next time we go we'll try sitting at the bar, or at the least having a different server. But we will definitely go back! "

  • "Had dinner with 3 others and had great service. The food was a bit slow but ok since the conversations were flowing. The noise level is quite loud as it was a full restuarant. Would recommend but I would go back on a less busy night if possible. "

  • "I cant say enough about this place . The menu has something for everyone. At the same time no matter what you order it is five star ,in my opinion. The staff exceeds all expectations from friendly to knowledge able of all the food dishes. We go often and find it hard to find anyplace in the area that has it all in comparison"

  • "We'll be back for sure. Passed the second visit test. Food & service is excellent. The menu is amazing; I just want to try everything. Mediterranean influence leaning a bit more toward Italian. Specials all sound awesome and the seafood paella that was on it rocked with an amazing amount of seafood. This is a gem. "

  • "We tried for the first time Crudo celebrating our 20th anniversary after debating between many incredible Dallas fine restaurants, not expecting much, but were absolutely surprised and impressed by what we found, an incredible sining experience!! The food was fantastic suberb! The ambience and the service was magnificent!! They made our anniversary date more than special! We will definitely come back again and again, and most definitely recommend it to friends and family. We are walking distance from the restaurant and never thought it would be this good! 2 thumbs up"

  • "...the food was only so-so. Calamari spent a little too much time in the fryer but had a great coating and the dipping sauces were quite tasty. The lamb papardelle would have been better with more seasoning. Wish we could have taken some of the salt out of my husband's saltimbocca (overly salty) and put it in my pasta. I have to say the tiramisu is outstanding, though. We'll definitely go back, but will rethink our food choices. Staff is super friendly and welcoming. Warning: the place gets quite loud about 8:00 on Sat. night."

  • "Thanks to our server, Sean, we had an exceptional experience at Crudo. Right from the beginning Sean thanked us for coming and informed us explicitly that we'll really enjoy the food at Crudo and the evening! That started the night off on the right foot! He made our night and made the Crudo an exceptional place to visit! It's a cozy place with just enough seating for everyone, great ambient lighting and outstanding food! We'll definitely return!"

  • "We had not been to Crudo in about 6 months and were pleasantly surprised that our waiter, Christian, remembered us from the earlier visit. I am glad to see that they expanded the dining room to what had previously been an outside patio. The food was outstanding once again. The sea bass special was especially good. We will not wait another 6 months to return. "

  • "This was our first time at Crudo. The food was excellent! The drinks were terrific (I highly recommend the Pineapple Tequila Rita with Jalapeno and Cajun Spices). The noise level was a little louder than we like and they were packed with people. We were a party of four - two had the seafood paella with risotto - they both cleaned their plates. My husband had the special - scallops and lobster tortellini, he also cleaned his plate. I had the jumbo shrimp with a light tomato, garlic and white wine sauce, served with capellini pasta. Excellent dish with a light sauce (perfect for those of us watching our caloric intake). Will definitely visit again and highly recommend it!"

All were were very fresh tasting and wonderful recipes. The service was also very good....attentive and professional. We were so happy to try a new place close to home and find that it was definitely worth trying. We will be back :)"

  • "We really enjoyed the food and service at Crudo! Each menu item we received was outstanding. The only thing that kind of bothered me was that we made a reservation, and still had to wait almost 30 min for a table. Regardless, we sat at the bar and enjoyed ourselves."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I'll be back to Crudo. The service was a little slow, but I think it was because they were understaffed and not because of lack of effort. The food was very good, although not quite as authentically Italian as I'd hoped. Still, you could do a lot worse for a nice meal with the wife."

  • "I looked this establishment up online not knowing exactly what to expect but hoping it would turn out good. I was blown away by the service, treatment and food. This place truly is a neighborhood gem and worthy of greatest honors. My only gripe if it really mattered, (which I don't think it does) would be that the place is small; however, this makes it nice and cozy! No, no complaints but many compliments! Great job and thank you for making my anniversary great! I don't know how I forgot my servers name but he was also exceptional! Sorry."

  • "I just happened to stumble upon this little gem, thanks to OpenTable! The food was fantastic (I had the Chilean Sea Bass -- perfectly prepared, well seasoned)! I enjoyed it so much that my date and I stayed for dessert (the smoothest Crème brulee I've ever had). We definitely plan to return!"

  • "We really like this restaurant, but have had some hit's and misses. First off, I will tell you that I have NEVER sent my food back before. Our 1st visit to the restaurant I had to send my appetizer back because it wasn't hot enough, but the food was fantastic. Lunch was great. This past Sat. it was raining and I don't know if that's what put them behind. We waited some time for our waiter to visit our table. When we finally ordered dinner, again my steak was just Luke warm as was my husband's pork chop. My son's Sea bass was excellent though. I'm hoping this was only a bad night due to the rain, because this is a wonderful restaurant!! I gave the service a 4 because it's usually great."

  • "One of our favorite neighborhood finds. Not cheap, but also not terribly overpriced either. Love the unique specials and wood fired flavors. They have some unique wines that are worth trying as well. Hard to believe the tiny kitchen can pump out such quality food. We've always had great food and even better service. It's always nice when the staff recognizes you by name when you return. We'll continue to frequent this little gem."

  • "This was my families first visit at Crudo's. When we first arrived there wasn't a sign that indicated exactly where the entrance was. Once seated we found that the atmosphere was pretty loud. We had a hard time hearing each other and We had a hard time getting our waitors attention. As for the food, I had the stuffed salmon and it was excellent! I would return, but this will be a place I'll dine for lunch or during the week. I'll avoid Friday/Saturday nights. Many enjoy this kind of atmosphere but for me I prefer a quieter dining experience."
