Long time customer here. Something must have happened to their manager as the staff had no direction. Only two people waiting tables. We asked our waitress where the others were and she said they didn’t show up. One waitress working the other tables was clearly angry. I think we are going to skip this restaurant for a while.

I have been to Crudo once and that was in 2014 (also for lunch). Don’t have any excuse as to why I haven’t been here in 4 years, since the food was (and still is) absolutely on point! That was the case yesterday as well. First came the bread topped with feta and olives. Amazing!

Rebecca was our server and made some delicious recommendations. Her infectious energy and friendly demeanor made us feel welcome. She checked on us throughout our meal and answered any questions we had about the menu items. She is an asset to your team! Left a generous tip because we felt the service and food was top notch. You can count on us returning for another meal in the future!

We ordered one cocktail each -
•The Raven (with vodka, and infused with cucumber, ginger liqueur, and ginger beer). SO good!

•The Lourdes Margarita (infused with Chile de Arbol) Also good!

My mom and I started off with the Caprese Tower - followed by the split of a phenomenal Margherita Pizza, and a Limoncello Cake for dessert. Even the tea selections were delectable. I got the Açaí Berry and mom got the Mango Passionfruit. Food and drinks all delicious, reasonably priced, portioned, and served by friendly people in a classy atmosphere. Next time, we will have to try out Happy Hour or possibly have dinner here!

This has always been a good consistent restaurant with fantastic service. I've been a customer of Crudo since they opened but have moved out of the area and always make time to meet friends there. This past visit was not to their standards. Had to ask for drinks 2 times after waiting for 20 minutes. Brought wrong drink twice. Food was good but then after waiting for 15-20 minutes for dessert we just finally gave up. We're only in the area 4 times a year to visit friends and I felt we lost an entire evening.

Always excellent! Thank you. I had the wood grilled Salmon with potatoes and sprouts. Always cooked to perfection. LOVE The Prisoner wine, which we have by the bottle. And, tried the Red Snapper without the blackened seasoning, with grilled shrimp on top. It was a keeper. Busy night with the guitarist - who is fantastic. So, service was a little slower than usual. But, always our favorite for dinner in Frisco.

We decided to try Crudo after maybe two years since last time. Service was great, very friendly and professional. No pressure to order quickly or most expensive items. Place is small but cozy. Noise level is adequate for nice conversation. Good variety of options and specials to choose from. Becca was great, giving us time but still attentive. Overall it was a great experience.

This was my second visit to Crudo Wood Fired Taverna. We brought a group here for a birthday celebration and I liked it so much that I brought another friend for a birthday celebration. The food and service are excellent. The only drawback is that it is noisy and it is not conducive to quiet conversation. Will return!

It was crowded by 5:45pm on Friday night. The wine menu yielded a good, oaky Cabernet from Argentina, barrel aged in French oak. The veal meatballs with arugula and mashed potatoes were fabulous! The cedar plank salmon with brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes with baby carrots, and the spinach salad with strawberries and pears were quite good. We really enjoyed the food and drink but the tables are quite close together and it is not a quiet place for couples to converse during the main dinner hour(s). The proximity of seating reminds me of New York City. I would love to eat at Crudo Taverna with a group. But The DESSERT - blueberry bread pudding dusted with cinnamon - words fail to describe what a delectable treat it is!!!

The food here is outstanding. And so many options to try. Have to go back and try more. The wine list is great, but needs to catch up with the year of the bottles. Also a bit pricier than other wine lists.

We went to Crudo's this past Friday with four other neighbors/friends. it was the first time the others had been to Crudo. They really enjoyed it and were pleasantly surprised. They didn't realize it was so nice. The menu is diverse and everything we had was good and enjoyable. Our table of six ordered seafood, steak, and chicken dishes. The bar is well stocked and happy Hour drink specials are a nice option. The house red is a Montepulciano that is pretty good for 45 per glass during HH. Crudo remains one of favorite , nice dinner options in Frisco.

1st time visitor after driving past for many years.
We were very pleasantly surprise by the food quality.
The service was top notch by Suzanne who was very familiar with the menu as well as specials off the menu.
Enjoyed a mussels appetizer and stuffed shrimp for the main course. My wife had a dinner special of snapper & topped with a petite lobster. It was a very relaxed atmosphere on a Sat night and we did not feel rushed at all even though the restaurant was filling up.
We will be back and we understand that there is music on Tues - Thursday
My only regret was that I should have asked about the pricing of the special since I thought that it was priced well above the standard menu items. My mistake but it was an enjoyable meal & evening

Used to go to eat at Crudo in Frisco quite often with so many new places opening, we hadn't been in a couple of years. Had friends visiting and decided to give Crudo a try again. And they didn't disappoint! The food was just as good as we remembered and the drink/wine list was very good. Service was excellent and we had an enjoyable meal and evening. Noise level is a bit loud but it is a smaller, quiant restaurant. Would highly recommend it for an excellent meal in Frisco!

We have been to Crudo a few times over the years but it’s probably been 2 years since our last visit.
We made a reservation but the table they gave us had to be the worst table in the restaurant.
Our waiter was good but we had a problem with my meal.
My salmon was cooked on the edges and raw inside.
I had to send it back and they cooked it and returned it in about 15 minutes.
It was disappointing that they didn’t do anything to try to make it right...comping the meal or buying a drink or offering a dessert or just about anything would have been appreciated. We didn’t even hear from a manager or anyone else to make it right.
It’s been awhile since we’ve been and probably will be awhile before we will give them another chance.
