Overall, the service, the food and the ambiance was very good. However, I didn't realize until later that we were charged $24 for the mushroom pizza, which was listed for $19 on the printed menu. This has occurred during a previous visit and is disappointing. I'll be sure to review the check prior to paying in future.

Responded on August 27, 2021

Hello Susan, Thank you for your review and for bringing this mistake to our attention. I take full responsibility for the error and I apologize for this lack of attention on our part. I have adjusted your bill to reflect the printed price of $19 and issued you a refund. I adjusted the price in our system for all guests moving forward. We will do our best to keep this from happening in the future. Sincerely, Brandon Heist General Manager brandon@credosf

Food was great but menu was limited. They do make you wear a mask until u get to you table. A little noisy but overall service and food were above par. I would recommend this place for a nice lunch.

Went in for just a casual lunch by myself. All of the staff were warm and friendly could tell they were smiling even with their masks on. Plenty of sanitizer available for those who wanted it. Food was presented and it was amazing looking and tasted just as great.

The staff at Credo are very nice and the food was excellent. We were at a table near the window and there were 2 at the adjacent table near the window, and it was difficult to talk because of the loud voices at the table next to us.

I had the crab sandwich, which I think is a newer addition to the menu, and it was excellent. Others had the pizza, which I know from past experience is amazing. They made a special effort to welcome me as a returning customer.

It is difficult to review well because we ate outside and it was freezing cold. The food was mostly great, as was the wine. The ambiance could have been better with some sort of separation from the street (homeless people walking by, loud cars, etc.). If they add additional heaters, and some sort of barrier, it would be a much better experience!

Amazing dinner! We went for SF restaurant week and it was 100% worth it. The portions were larger than I was expecting (great as leftovers, too). Service was phenomenal! Staff was attentive and even swapped out my friends dish (free of charge) when she thought it was a little too salty. Could not recommend this place enough! 5/5 for service and food.

Because people were becoming concerned about the virus, the place was less full than normal, but the entire experience was at that same high level that keeps bringing us back to Credo! The quality of food, its preparation, presentation, and flavor were at their usual peak.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years and have throughly enjoyed the food. On my last visit I was very surprised to see a similar but different menu. White the food use to be great, I found this experience barley marginal. Too bad.

Very nice Italian food with an innovative touch. Food was excellent, service very nice, all in a cozy atmosphere. We liked the Credo - I believe - writings on the walls, provided fodder for conversation.

The food was quite bland and the service was a little slow most likely due to it being Valentines

We dined downstairs in the private dining room which was set up for individual tables on Valentines Day. It was a lovely experience. Service was excellent, food was wonderful. A great find if you're willing to brave the financial district. The garage at 555 California has public parking in the evening for $12.

Everything was taken care of from the moment we got there. We did make a reservation but it didn’t seem super packed for a Thursday so I’m not sure if that’s absolutely necessary. Good food and wine!

Went to Credo for lunch. The food choices were good; different and interesting. I liked the layout and design of the main dining area. The server was friendly and took good care of us. Two cons on the restaurant were it took awhile to get seated although we had reservations and the room ambience is loud so it was a little difficult for conversation.

As usual, good food, medium prices.

You can spend hours trying to read & discuss the words on the walls & those downstairs while waiting to use the bathroom. Do checkout the adjoining private dining room, very cool. Clint is an interesting guy...
