This place is just not the same. We have been coming here for years and it is just slipping anymore. Service has been very slow. The paper menus are almost illegible with like size six font and super fuzzy. (I understand the COVID thing with menus, but they were literally barely legible.) The lighting is now way too bright for the “ feel” of the restaurant. Crudo used to be a darker, cozy, intimate place. Now it feels sterile and too bright. Hopefully things start to rebound.

Great service. Great food. Generous portions. Lighting was a little dark and music a little loud my taste but not a turn off.

The drink menu could be better. I feel like these drinks were created for sorority girls, and not adults.

One AC was not working so it was extremely warm in there. Food was medium. Two entrees were very good, two not so much. Red wine not served at appropriate temperature; doesn’t appear they have a wine fridge. Would not go back.

My meal was excellent! The food was cooked to perfection and was seasoned just right. The wait was not long so I was very satisfied with my experience. I would like to see more items on the menu but overall my experience was excellent.

Good food. Everything on the menu looks phenomenal and everything we've tried has been good. So I look forward to trying the rest. Nowhere else I can think of that offers quite the variety of good foods--steak, lamb chops, pasta, seafood, etc.

Sometimes you get off on the wrong foot and just can’t recover. Not sure how our reservation got mixed up, but we booked a party of 3 and they were apparently expecting 2. Maybe OpenTable is responsible for the mix up? Perhaps the numbers complicated the seating plans given the current circumstances? Nonetheless, as semi-regular customers, and there to support an establishment we hope to see survive, not the warmest experience.

Not going to write off Crudo, Love the vibe, the food and the staff, but we’ll be taking some time off.

Best food quality in frisco...good value too on the menu. The Fish specials are spectacular...sea bass and redfish mostly. Blackened Redfish over avocado risotto is one of my favorites.

Our food took much longer than it should have. We come here sometimes and this was our only disappointing time. Our food was all overdone as well. They need more staff. They are understaffed and cannot keep up the last 2 times we’ve come.

We LOVE Crudo. Think there may have been a difference in food quality? Lobster risotto had way too much thyme and the lamb chops were medium instead Of medium rare. But overall we Love Crudo and will back again!!

A couple of years ago, I would have given Crudo a 5-star rating for the neighborhood gem it was (maybe 4 because of the sitting layout/noise level in the main area). However, I have visited the place four times in the last few months (different days, times and servers) and the experience was lacking. The food was still good (even if sauces seemed more watered down and portions reduced) and came to the table soon enough. However, my biggest disappointment was with the servers. In previous years, GMs Giancarlo and Ivan would come over and spoil us every time. Lately, we’ve had these very young servers that have no passion for food and just seem to want to complete a transaction and move on. Two nights ago I brought one of my girlfriends for the first time. Our server ignored our requests, dropped the food (literally poured the wine and ran away) and did not check on us once until it was dessert time. I’m more forgiving because of my past experiences, but my friends was so put off she will never be back. I’m weary of bringing more people here.

Had a business dinner here recently. Wonderful food and wine list, superior service and food. While the singer was also wonderful, it was a bit too loud for the main dinning room. Next time, I would ask to be seated in the outer room.

We waited 50 mins for our table and there wasn’t any communication from the hostess’s or the “manager/part owner.” That’s now he introduced himself to us when we asked him if he was a manager. A “part owner” should know that they are looking at high wait times and should communicate that with customers that are waiting. We went and asked the very clueless hostess’s how long we would have to wait and they didn’t have a set answer for us. We went up three times to check on our table. The food was not worth the price. We were not impressed with management or the food. We will not be returning.

We have dined here several times without any issues. However, the food quality has gone substantially down. We ordered everything that we normally ordered and everything was not up to standard. The portion size on the pasta was smaller and the Filet Mignon not only did not have the tenderness that a Filet usually has (to the point where we questioned whether it was actually a Filet) but was way overcooked for a medium rare steak. Very dry and seared to a crunch on the outside.

We had reservations and we were quickly seated. Friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff were attentive without being overbearing. Food was served quickly and was hot and fresh. Quality ingredients, great dishes. The house Cabernet was delicious. Not too stuffy and a really nice vibe.

I have never really written a review but I will just for this special occasion.

Coming into a fancy restaurant as a younger couple, I expected the same service everyone else was getting. I was wrong. The waiter did not read us the specials, did not fill our water glasses a single time, brought out the wrong food, and did not hand us the check until he realized our plates had been taken away 20 minutes ago. I would have said something right then and there, but it was Valentines and I did not want to ruin the mood for me or anyone else. There were multiple tables that our waiter served but blatantly ignored us.

The worst part was that my tip was automatically added to my bill for $15. This waiter did not deserve anything near that. Horrible service ruined a good night for both me and my date.

We have been here before on a few occasions. The menu has enough variety to satisfy many different tastes and the portions are just right. The creme brulee was pedestrian this time. Not spectacular, but it didn't ruin the evening. The noise level is pretty high, but we knew that going in. We enjoyed the wine selection. We will be back.
