Great spot in Frisco! The food was perfect. We had the parmesan chicken and filet mignon-both were amazing. No complaints plus live music was a plus. Really nice night out with an enjoyable birthday meal. Thanks to Nick for the wonderful service!

This was our first visit to Crudo. We got there in time for Happy Hour and took advantage of a great deal on some Italian Wine. All of us were very happy with our food. I had the Bolegnese and it was delicious.

Great little night at this neighborhood spot - we sampled just the crostini (both steak and crab were outstanding) and a flatbread with delicious meatballs! Table service was great and the bartender made me a mean amaretto sour - live guitar music made for a great atmosphere - will be back for sure!

Crudo was great. The ambiance is warm, inviting, and romantic. The service was excellent. My husband got the crab stuffed shrimp and I had a Caesar salad and caprese tower. Since we can’t have romaine right now our waitress said they could improvise and use other greens. The food was all super tasty. My only suggestion would be to have other hearty vegetarian options such as more pasta dishes. We vegetarians don’t always want a salad and cheese pizza. Other than that, it was an awesome date night.

The food was wonderful but our server was horrible. Took forever to get him to serve up and then he never mentioned the specials, we had to find out about them from another server when we noticed a ditch somebody else had gotten. He Acted like he did not want to be there.

We had a reservation and were escorted to the table by the kitchen and bathroom. There were tons of open 4 top tables around us so we requested to move. Our waiter was very annoyed by our request and told us that the other table was reserved for guests coming in 10 min. It was another 4 top table like ours so we were confused. He said they requested that specific table. Then the hostess came and we said we would be happy with any of the other several 4 top tables and she moved us and we had a great meal and our waiter was great.

With so many great restaurants in Frisco / Plano we hadn’t been to Crudo in a long time. - so out of the blue we decided to try them the other day. Bottomline is that we had a fantastic time. Excellent food and our waiter was great. There were 5 in our party. We ordered salmon, pizzas, salads and apps. Everything was great. As we left, we all agreed to move Crudo back to our “go-to list”. - if there is one complaint, it is the level of noise. That aside, we will be back.

Music was so loud we could barely hear each other talk. Seating for our reservation was not ready and we had to wait nearly 20 minutes for another couple to be done for our table of 7. Tables right in front of door and it was freezing out so it was really unpleasant when the door would open.

It has become a tradition for my mom and I to go out to eat every Halloween. We decided on Crudo since we already tried the lunch menu and wanted to have a nice dinner on a rainy Wednesday evening. From the bartenders to the servers, and to the manager, this place is warm and inviting. The atmosphere is classy and the food is always delicious 👍🏽

Our server, Kellee, was friendly, attentive, and made some suggestions for our meal. I ordered the Prosciutto Gnocchi and mom had the Maple Roasted Chicken. Amazing flavor and ideal portion sizes! We had the Blueberry Bread Pudding for dessert. Light and airy and not sweet. It was paired with an amazing peppermint tea. Nice way to end a meal.

We stayed for the Live Jazz Band as well. She provides the vocals- he plays the alto saxophone. Turns out they are there every Wednesday. Nice to know. Our very attentive bartender, Zach, was chatting with us and had such a positive and welcoming vibe. We enjoyed “The Raven” - an amazing cocktail with ginger liqueur, ginger beer, and muddled cucumber. Nice touch! We will definitely be back!

Food and service was great! I find the restaurant to be bit too dark. Very hard to read the menu. We celebrated my daughter’s 15th birthday dinner and all turned out well despite her steak coming out wrong. Server was more than ready have it corrected but my daughter decided not to.

Delicious meal at Crudo Wood Fired Taverna last Saturday night. The watermelon feta salad was so good. My husband and I love the Ribeye Crostinis as an appetizer. So good. The lobster ravioli was very good as well. We will definitely be back to Crudo!

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.
