The food was tasty but the live music made the night. Nice smooth tunes to compliment dinner

This was our first time at Crudo, and we felt like it was some of the best Italian food we've tasted from the salad with polenta croutons to the lobster filled ravioli, topped with crab, scallop and shrimp. Excellent!!!

Love that this is a local place; small and more intimate than many others. Felt well taken cared for my both the waiter and the owner/manager who stopped by to chat and ask about everything. The gnocchi was pillow soft! The wine suggestion was spot on. Well done.
I prefer this place when no live music so you can really have conversation. Otherwise you need to sit in the separate room.

My husband and I have been coming to Crudo since it opened. The food preparation, in our opinion, is dwindling. Example: Crudo used to make an amazing mushroom risotto - the risotto was fully cooked and flavors delightful. This time, Thursday 10/3/19, it was not fully cooked and we couldn’t experience the flavor because it was drowned in the sauce used for the scallops. Example 2: We ordered creme brûlée for dessert - the top was over-torched and the inside wasn’t set. So basically burnt vanilla soup. Example 3: Tried to order after dinner cappuccino - but the machine was broken (still from the last time we were there a month ago). Our server was wonderful, setting was lovely as usual and the base ingredients were all fresh - it was just the prep and execution that left us really disappointed.

Very average food for a not so average price. Two drinks (house wine and Tito’s martini), split an appetizer, salad and main course, $90. Service was fine. Ambience is good.

The food is very good and the service was pretty good. Drinks and food took a while and the tables in the bar area against the wall are very small and super close together. You definitely make friends with the people on either side of you.

One of our favorite places for birthdays and special occasions. Food is always excellent no matter what you order. Service is great and they are very attentive. It is always busy so I would recommend a reservation.

The food was amazing! The salmon and onion soup were some of the best we have had. But the service is slow and erratic. We waited 15-20 minutes to get our drinks. Then tables sat after us were served before we were. They need more waitstaff. But the food is superb!!

The restaurant was about 2/3 full when our party of four arrived. By the time we had finished ordering, it was full, and was clearly understaffed despite being a Friday evening at prime dinner hours. While quick to deliver our drinks, food service was relatively slow, and we had to ask multiple times to get our water refilled - which we only successfully received once. The food was either really good or REALLY bad. The stuffed shrimp and the grilled salmon were both delicious, although the brussel sprouts accompanying the salmon were severely underseasoned and undercooked. As a starter, the caprese "tower" was flavorful, but a tower would normally mean more than two slices of tomato and two slices of cheese. Finally, the veal meatballs -- painfully dry, no flavor, and gritty enough to be used as sandpaper. It's the first time we'd sent something back to the kitchen in years.

Overall, it's a decent restaurant, but for the prices (which aren't terrible), we'd expect better consistency in food quality and much better service (which, again, was mostly due to low staffing levels - it didn't seem to be a lack of effort by our servers and other staff).

Normally I love Crudo, but had a terrible meal the last time. My $33 steak was served covered in brown gravy(which I hate) rather than the gorgonzola butter it was suppose to be served with. When I mentioned to the server she took it back and supposedly had it fixed but all they did is scrape is off and plop a glob of cheese on it, but by this time the steak was already cold. Huge disappointment!

As always, love going to Crudo for a homey, delicious meal. Love the entertainment during the week, particularly the Wednesday night singer! I would highly recommend it any day of the week.

Crudo has changed since our last visit. Service was slow and inattentive. The wine list was limited. They used to have a much larger selection. Each time the front door opened the room was flooded with sunlight. Later it became too dark to adequately see the table. Some one played with the lights causing them to go up, then down. On the upside: The food was great. One steak was overcooked but was replaced with one properly cooked. It was tender and tasty. The Sea Bass special was outstanding but over priced. It is too bad that this has happened to a once great place. It had been a favorite.

Food is always spot on and the waiter and waitress always check on us to see if everything is ok. They have great suggestions when we cannot make up our minds. We go there to unwind from the week and listen to the musician.

Invited my girlfriends family to come visit Crudo for the first time because I absolutely love this place. Have never even thought about sending anything back until tonight. I have ordered the Kobe Beef Peppercorn Steak over 10 times, tonight I asked for medium rare, received Medium well, got it remade and it was beyond rare and the third time cooked to the temperature I asked for at first, medium rare. It was sliced very thick compared to the very thing style they always do, the “Kobe steak” did not taste like The Kobe beef I have had every other time. Was very disappointed with this visit food wise, service is always great, did not charge me for the steak, and will still come back but due to this experience I won’t be getting the Kobe Steak for a very long time. I di not know if it just happened to be tonight on whomever the chef was but it was by no means meeting Crudo’s expectations. On the other hand, my girlfriends family was beyond pleased with everything that they ate. I just did not experience what I always had before.

Hopefully they can get this sorted out asap.
