Italian
We are excited to welcome our guests back to Credo! We re-opened on Wednesday, September 23rd with a new extended outdoor patio. As of October 1st, all restaurants were authorized by the city of San Francisco to begin seating guests indoors at 25% capacity. All of our tables are 6+ feet apart and we have strict sanitation protocols in place. Facemasks are required for all guests unless actively eating or drinking.

Chef Larry Finn's menu reflects a deep appreciation of Italian culinary traditions combined with Northern California sensibilities. Distilling robust and complex flavors from simple ingredients—including local produce, sustainable fish and imported Italian specialty items—and classic preparations, our selections are quintessentially Italian...with a distinct point of view.

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

The staff was very nice

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...

The food was good but nothing that would make me want to go back (vs. explore other restaurants).. The service was great all around - at the bar, the hostess, and our waiter.

The food was good - I had the risotto special and it was delicious.. my friend liked his dish.

But the noise level was so loud we could not hear each other. This is the only reason I give the restaurant a low rating.. well this and the fact that the tables are soooo close together.

Average good, with above average prices. We got the burrata and citus salad as appetizers, followed by couple of the pastas. Everything tasted below average. Infact we sent the ravioli back to the kitchen as it was not cooked to perfection. The prices on the food as well the local wine are simply not justified.

Food was terrific! My only suggestion would be for people who try not to eat too much or any dairy to have a couple more items without cheese but overall, love the food and the options provided. Will go back for sure -- just not with anyone hard of hearing, as it got quite noisy as the room filled up.

Great little jewel in the Financial District. The service was excellent, décor fun and eclectic, food fabulous, but a little loud if you want to have serious conversations. Otherwise the energy is infectious.

It's the second time I've been there and would highly recommend it. I'm making reservations for next week!

Credo was a wonderful experience. The host was extremely kind from the beginning and our server was knowledgeable about the menu inside and out. He even engaged in delightful conversation with us about the preparation of the meal and never rushed us when we were finishing up a course. The food was incredible and we will definitely be coming back again!

We had a very good time at this restaurant. The hostess was welcoming and made us at home right away. The food was great, and the service was very attentive and comforting. The food came at a very good timing. The table was not too close each other and we could have a good conversation not hearing other tables talk. We will come back.

We went to credo for a business Christmas get together...8 people. The food was excellent, well prepared with interesting flavors. Service was also very good. The noise level is so high that hearing one another in conversation was very challenging. When you want a really terrific meal and don’t mind the boisterous noise level, this is a great place to dine. But for a romantic or fine dining experience, this would not fit the bill.
