    Another great meal at Credo and met new manager, Adam Lewin. So thankful Credo is back open and booming. We loved the asparagus starter and the orecchiette with Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, Calabrian chili butter, pangrattato. Huge wine list and friendly service. Highly recommend and will be going back!

    The food was pretty lackluster. I ordered the mushroom pizza. It had way too much cheese, the mushrooms were undercooked, and someone was a little heavy handed with the truffle oil. The menus was about half the size of the online menu, and they did not have a couple items on the small menu that day. I would have picked another restaurant if I had seen the abbreviated menu. Overall pretty disappointing meal.

    Excellent service! Everyone is super nice and welcoming! Food was 4/5 stars. Shrimp appetizer was a little over cooked (sauce was amazing though). Mushroom pizza was lacking a little flavor. But the 2 meat pastas were my favorite!

    I first came to Credo pre pandemic for lunch and really enjoyed the pizza, and I finally just went back again. It was even better than I remembered, and I would come here every day just for the bread. The bread and butter they bring for the table is so good I had to cut myself off so I could eat everything else. We ordered a crudo appetizer that tasted like super fresh ceviche, and it came with crostini. For mains we had the ricotta gnocchi with mushrooms - this was surprisingly light and so tasty, the actual gnocchi were small and fluffy and so delicious. We also ordered the dungeness crab sandwich. I'm not usually a sandwich person but it was amazing. The crab was fresh, there was a perfect amount of sauce + avocado, and you can't beat the bread. The drinks were also really good (it's nice that they have great non-alcoholic options too), as was the service. The staff was very in sync and didn't miss a beat - everyone was really nice and helpful. Great ambience too - perfect if you're looking for a spot to go with friends or take clients!

    The service was above and beyond my expectations. Our waiter timed everything perfectly. He made great recommendations and tended to our every need. The salmon was fantastic, The burrata had unique flavors and was not like what I get at every other restaurant. The cocktails were excellent. Wine selection was great. All of our needs were tended to and the staff was super friendly. Can't weight to go back!

    Not the waiter but the host was refilling my tea and put the darn pitcher on my salad! I clearly saw the pitcher on top of my food! That is so rude and disgusting as who knows it there is bacteria on the bottom of the pitcher.

    I took my boyfriend out for a belated Valentines lunch to a restaurant that he’s been to many times but I had not. We are very Covid aware and neither of us have eaten inside of a restaurant only on the sidewalks and/or parklets. We ate on the sidewalk but Nathan umbrella with a torch heater that was very comfortable. The menu was easy to understand and the food and drinks were excellent. We shared a mixed beet salad that could’ve easily served for as appetizers and we shared a BLT that was huge along with a Caesar salad. I look forward to returning for more meals.

    My husband and I had a minute to ourselves away from kids and decided to try Credo. We loved it! Started with the El Diablo cocktail, delicious. Starters included the brussel sprouts, chop salad, and meatballs. Order them all, you will not be disappointed. I had the salmon, hubs had the risotto. Portions aren't huge but easily shared between the two of us. Wasn't a romantic place but up tempo music, incredibly attentive staff (they'll fold your napkin when you leave the table!) and excellent cuisine. We were in and out in an hour. Food was fast and super fresh. Next time we're in SF, we'll definitely comeback. 5 stars for excellent food and service!

    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.

    CredoResponded on August 27, 2021Hello 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

    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!
