Credo Ratings and Reviews
Great service, interesing menu choices and a fun, urban experience place to dine. Waitstaff was extremely friendly. Love the vibe provided by the interesting quotes on the walls, but the place can be noisy and hard to hear if seated at opposite ends of the table. Will definitely go there again.
We had a super nice dinner, and the staff was excellent. The chef came by our table and shared how each dish was
prepared. The food was excellent with several unique takes on classic dishes. I recommend Credo to anyone who is looking for a good dinner, unique surroundings, and super service!
We arrived at 11 mins late for our reservation and were then kept waiting for 5 mins whilst the front of house checked in a large party and then disappeared. When arriving back (after 2 other managers had asked us if we had been checked in) she told us that as we were so late they had given our table away. When I explained politely that we had been here for a while she said 'to bad, we are a busy restaurant and we don't keep tables for more than 10 mins'. Eventually another manager came over and found us a table immediately. The food is okay, the noise is unbelievable (no sound proofing) and the service is below average.
food was good but the service was sub-par. we arrived 15 minutes early for our 6:30pm reservation on valentine's day. the staff at the door, who quickly introduced himself as the manager, "did not know the seating arrangement" that the hostess had set up so he could not seat us. we waited at the bar until exactly 6:30 when the hostess came by and asked if it was ok to seat us. our waiter was very nice but we had to repeat our questions and orders many times before he got it right. i think a more professional overall staff would match the restaurant with the quality of the food. it's funny how an eating experience can be ruined if the service is not as good.
Love the location - my weekend experience was very distinct from the normal busyness after work during the week. It was practically empty but pleasant to enjoy the privacy and the experience certainly wasn't diminished....just wasn't a scene. Great food, as always.
Credo is right across from my office so it would be great to report that it's perfect for business lunches. Unfortunately, while the food is decent and the service very friendly, the noise level in the main room is off the charts loud and requires you to almost shout your conversations during peak lunch hours. By the end of the lunch, I felt physically worn from the constant din. The one time I dined in the downstairs, which is not always available due to private bookings, the noise level was fine. While the service was generally attentive, the check contained an appetizer that I had cancelled and never received. The waitress was appropriately apologetic but this is the kind of mistake one remembers the next time, if there is one.
A very mixed bag. We arrived precisely on time. It was a meaningfully important business networking lunch. It was clear from the crowd of 5 or 6 at the front that they were way over-booked/over-something. At the same time, there was a 4-person table set for two by the front window sitting open.After being patient for a 5-8 minutes, and it was clear the woman Larissa at the front was overwhelmed, she told me several tables had paid and she was waiting for them to leave, so not her fault, but c'mon, this is a real restaurant, they over-booked. I asked about the empty table. She said it was being saved for the owner. I said, c'mon, what owner would want us all standing around while "his" table sat empty. I asked for it, and said
We arrived late but the hostess was very accommodating and sat us at a nice table. We had the dine about town menu, and everything was very tasty but a little too salty. I was disappointed with the dessert. Presentation was lacking and flavor was nothing out of the ordinary.
love the concept, business practices, giving back to community, sustainable sources (especially). is there a way to figure out a noise-deadening solution in the dining room without sacrificing the open feel nor sightlines to all the quotes and food preparation areas?
Most of the food was very good, but my osso bucco was over cooked and dry. The flavor was there, but a dry piece of braised meat really isn't acceptable. My wife had the same entre, and hers was dry too. Maybe they just messed up one batch, but with how many great restaurants there are in San Francisco, you have to be at the top of your game every night.
I had the Cesar salad for an appetizer, and it was very good. Wy wife had the fondu and we enjoyed that too. One thing to note is that the portions are very large. You really don't need a first coarse unless you share.
I needed a last minute place for a business dinner. I had never been to Credo so I didn't know what to expect. What I found was a gem. The large table in the alcove was perfect. The menu was excellent and for those who enjoy the vino, they found numerous excellent choices on the wine list. I would recommend Credo to anyone.
Energetic is not how I would describe the noise level. It is way too loud in the restaurant when it is full. You can barely hear the person sitting right across the table. The restaurant should do somoething about baffling. Otherwise, I love the food and the service is always impeccable. The noise is really starting to get to me so I now limit my number of visits.
Our reservation on opentable wasn't in their computer even though I got 2 notifications.It took a while to convince the hostess that we really did have a 7 pm rez.When she seated us she didn't tell us about their Dine-About-town menu-the couple next to us gave us the info. So we had to get those menus after a wait. We were told the apple crisp had sold out so there was a replacement gateau as well as tiramisu. At the end of dinner, the hostess told us that there was no more tiramisu (even though we put in 3 orders!) so we could have strawberry shortcake. She was abrasive & not apologetic.It was just strange.
Very noisy. We had reservations for 5 and were led to a basement room, which we refused, because it was devoid of any ambiance, especially for a 65th birthday celebration. Food was unremarkable (I had the crab pannino) We did enjoy reading the varies quotes on the wall. Service was polite and attentive.
Waiter was pleasant but acted rushed and eager to be done with us as he as for our drink order.
He was better as he offered a taste of a wine and then all but disappeared.
Our main course came from a non-waiter who quickly put it down and disappeared--we thought for cheese grater but he never came back. Our flatware disappeared with a busboy and our first course plates and was never replaced.
We had to ask for flatware tho our waiter breezed by the table looking to see if we'd been served.
Food was great.
The noise is intense.
