This was our first time and we really enjoyed our night. The menu had some great choices. For appetizers, we had mussels and crab cakes. The crab cakes were a special for the night and were probably the best we've ever had. Salads were also enjoyed. Entrees were lobster ravioli, salmon and a pasta dish. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we all agreed that we'd return.

Great place for a night out with that special someone. Excellent service, elegant tasty food, and a wonderful ambiance. I wouldn't bring my kids here, but enjoyed adult conversation and a long dinner sipping our wine. Highly recommend.

First time @ Crudo and we have a fantastic time. The food and service was excellent. The only annoying thing was someone was always messing with the lighting, turning it up and then down again. This happened several times over the 3 hours we were there.

Appetizer was saltyz had to send it back and asked for salt on the side cause I didn’t trust them with seasoning anymore. We got three portions of the pasta linguini. The scallops were horrendously salty, asked to have them redone with a lot less salt. The replacement scallops came out...was even saltier than the first. We all gave up on salvaging this dinner and just leave it at that. Will not be coming back

I've been here twice, and had problems both times. The first time the waitress spilled a drink on me and it was NOT taken off the bill. The second time, after waiting 30 min. for the waitress to appear, she claimed that the credit card system was down and we could only stay and eat if we had cash. We did, so we stayed. The entire lunch took 2 1/2 hours because service was so bad. We never saw the waitress and had to flag down a manager when we needed the bill because we had an appointment to get to.

We hadn't been here in about a year, but it was just as tasty as we remember. Fish dishes were nicely prepared and very yummy.
However, even though the two risottos underneath our two different fish specials had different descriptions, they were exactly the same! Also, there is a push to get the special of the day "since you never know when we will have that on the menu again." The fish specials were about $38 each vs. the regular salmon on the menu that I was considering for at least $10 less. We had a nice evening out and the food was delicious but we felt a little "taken" by the quasi hard sell on the specials. Plus, they never tell you the price of the specials... and I usually don't feel comfortable asking.

It's been a while since we've been to Crudo. We found the food better than ever! The crostini is always good. We had the lobster ravioli and the lamb chops and both were outstanding. We had a server that was super. She was very efficient and very friendly. They have nice wines on the wine list even though the list is short. Overall, it was one of the best meals we've had for some time. We plan to go back soon!

My husband and i were seated in the middle of the walkway with people passing on both sides of our table; wait staff and customers. I was not a fan of that. The lobster ravioli came out with some hot and some cold, and not worth the price. But the calamari and pizza my husband ordered were delicious! I just can’t validate the cost vs the experience. It was busy so i doubt my lack of future plans to go back will hurt their bottom line.

Crudo continues to be our favorite Frisco eating establishment. Great quality, good service, nice environment, and diverse menu. nice bar area and some live music on selected nights. A hidden gem and one we don't go to enough. We have never been disappointed at lunch or dinner at Crudo.

Our first time here, the place was rather busy on Black Friday dinner. We were properly seated with water and menus. Server was very knowledgeable and personable. Complementary focaccia from their wood oven was innovative in style and very tasty. While our appetizers were good, they came out very sporadically over the course of 10 minutes. Crabcakes were very good as well as the onion soup.

Everyone ordered a variety of entrées, with the salmon and meatballs (appetizer done as an entrée) considered favorites. Two different pasta dishes were ordered and while they are using very good ingredients, the sauces had too much cheese for our preference. Would retry again.

Warm greeting by hostess, and table was ready on time!! Enjoyed the calamari appetizer. Entrées were salmon, and blackened shrimp/scallops, both were excellent. Total tab with wine, apps, entree, and desert was around $100. Overall rating 4.5+ is well deserved.

Their chicken parmesan was out of this world, excellent! I would say it's the best I have ever had. Our server was great, very attentive, really excellent as well.

I highly recommend this restaurant. That said, it's not inexpensive by any stretch. However, if you're paying a lot more than a normal family style restaurant you expect more by way of the food. And these folks not only stepped up to the plate, they knocked it out of the park! Excellent place to go! We'll be back again soon!
