We love Crudo! The food is always a notch above what you can get at other Italian food restaurants. The pizza has a very authentic crust and there are many other delicious items to choose from. The service is excellent and our waiter was professional yet friendly. We had fun there two nights ago listening to the live music and drinking good wine. This place has never disappointed us and has a permanent place on our go to list.

Zachary & Sutton completely made the whole experience.
Our 1st time at Crudo and we arrived with a 2030 reservations and chose to wait at the bar.
To our benefit Sutton & Zach made sure we didn't need our reservation, which we canceled 1.5 hrs early so someone else could enjoy this wonderful experience.
Delicious Old Fashioneds, Extra Dirty Martinis & Manhattans set the scene for Watermelon Salad, Waygu Carpaccio, Shaved Ribeye Crostini, Lump Crab Crostini & an awesome Tiramisu accompanied by Tawny Port, Grappa & Lemoncello.
Date Night has not ever reached this quality of delicious food and drinks until Crudo!!

Had a reservation for 5 on Saturday. Hostess did not have our open table reservation listed and would not resolve until a manager came on site. Fortunately the waiter found us a table and we had a great dinner. Not sure what went wrong. I had the confirmation # and open table email. Crudo should look into this.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and service. The hostess was really good - went about 9:00 on 9/8/18. She took the time to make everything JUST right at our table. The disappointment was in the food - SOOO much salt. Even the cheese on the bread was REALLY salty - but the shrimp/scallops in my pasta would have normally been inedible for me but I hate wasting food. SOO much salt. Other than that the pasta/sauce was good.

Our service was horrible. We had a 6:15 reservation for 4 and at 8:15 we still didn’t have our dinner. We had to ask to order 45 minutes in. We had to ask for our second round of drinks twice and this was still before food ever came. Finally asked for the manager and she was unapologetic. She never followed up once food came out and did nothing to make experience better. Two out of 6 of the scallops at the table were raw and that was the special of the night. We heard another table with the same issue of raw scallops. When I told the manager they were raw she said “Oh. Are you done? Want me to take the plate?” Again no apology. We have been there several times and don’t know we’ll go back. Overall, very disappointing customer service.

Crudo Wood Fired Taverna never fails me! The service and food is awesome and a great wine list. The only problem is the noise....too much of it! It's a small place and one half is the restaurant and one half is the bar with small tables. Unfortunately, the noise from the bar can't help but filter over to the restaurant side....very noisey. However, that won't keep me from returning; never had a bad meal from them!

Crudo was a little disappointing, even though it's usually one of my favorite spots. I noted on my Open Table reservation that is was our anniversary, but it wasn't acknowledged by the server or hostess . . . kind of a bummer. It was very noisy, particularly our table which was near the bar. We'll be back though because the food is always amazing.

Went on Wednesday night and lucked out with great live music.
Drinks and food were fantastic! The salmon was perfectly cooked.
Very good wine, however wines by the glass can be pricey. Looking forward to going back.

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.
