1st time visitor after driving past for many years.
We were very pleasantly surprise by the food quality.
The service was top notch by Suzanne who was very familiar with the menu as well as specials off the menu.
Enjoyed a mussels appetizer and stuffed shrimp for the main course. My wife had a dinner special of snapper & topped with a petite lobster. It was a very relaxed atmosphere on a Sat night and we did not feel rushed at all even though the restaurant was filling up.
We will be back and we understand that there is music on Tues - Thursday
My only regret was that I should have asked about the pricing of the special since I thought that it was priced well above the standard menu items. My mistake but it was an enjoyable meal & evening

Used to go to eat at Crudo in Frisco quite often with so many new places opening, we hadn't been in a couple of years. Had friends visiting and decided to give Crudo a try again. And they didn't disappoint! The food was just as good as we remembered and the drink/wine list was very good. Service was excellent and we had an enjoyable meal and evening. Noise level is a bit loud but it is a smaller, quiant restaurant. Would highly recommend it for an excellent meal in Frisco!

We have been to Crudo a few times over the years but it’s probably been 2 years since our last visit.
We made a reservation but the table they gave us had to be the worst table in the restaurant.
Our waiter was good but we had a problem with my meal.
My salmon was cooked on the edges and raw inside.
I had to send it back and they cooked it and returned it in about 15 minutes.
It was disappointing that they didn’t do anything to try to make it right...comping the meal or buying a drink or offering a dessert or just about anything would have been appreciated. We didn’t even hear from a manager or anyone else to make it right.
It’s been awhile since we’ve been and probably will be awhile before we will give them another chance.

The food was delicious. The salmon flat bread was amazing. Service was good. We had reservations at 8 pm for 7 , but due to the small size of the restaurant we didn’t get seated until 8:40pm. The hostess was very nice and apologetic about the wait. It was well worth the wait! Next time will make an earlier reservation!

Our waiter was great. The food tasted fantastic. Our experience: horrible.

I ordered the stuffed shrimp. On the menu it said it was stuffed with mascarpone risotto, shaved asparagus and roasted peppers. Delicious, right? Right. Problem: it is also stuffed with Blue Crab and they haven’t bothered to print new menus. Bigger problem: I’m very allergic to crab and took a big bite not realizing it.

I asked the waiter if it had crab and he confirmed but said they hadn’t updated the menu. He took my plate and brought me the menu to pick something else. The manager stopped by and asked if I was ok. I took a couple Zyrtec and for the most part didn’t have too bad of a reaction.

The replacement meal took about 15 minutes. My original meal was ~$24 and the new meal was ~$34 (steak, mashed potatoes and asparagus). When the check came they had comped the dessert we ordered but charged me for the higher priced menu item. I did not make a scene or even request to have something comped. I would not have expected to pay for the more expensive item given that the menu did not have a main ingredient listed that I was allergic to.

The biggest issue was the assist manager that came over when I asked the waiter why I was charged for the higher priced item. He did comp my menu item totally but then proceeded to say how it wouldn’t have happened if he was my waiter because he would have restated all the ingredients. He went further to say that I should always tell all waitstaff all my allergies. I have lived my whole life with food allergies. All of which are controlled by Benadryl or Zyrtec as long as I don’t ingest large quantities. They’ve never been so bad that I worry about cross contamination so I simply don’t order food with items I am allergic to in them. I told the manager that they need to reprint their menus if they change the items. He got mad and said I wasn’t listening and stormed off. I’ll never return. Update your menu, it might cost someone their life.

Nice place! Food was good but some of the items on our plates were very salty. The polenta on my plate was very salty and I did not eat it and that was my only side dish. My sister’s shrimp had good flavor but again they over did the salt but the linguine was so delicious.

We took my Sister in Law to Crudo for her birthday. The food, the service, the drinks were all perfect. My steak was perfectly cooked, my wife's Chicken was well seasoned and tasted great, my SIL's Halibut was great and perfectly cooked. We had our 7 year old with, and they treated him like he was adult and made him feel great (many restaurants ignore kids). We will be back!

My husband and I love this restaurant. Nothing compares. We have tried several of the new and up and coming restaurants in the area and nothing makes us want to go back. We always have an excellent meal here. We have had several things on the menu and we always want to come back. Other places just are not consistent. Our waiter was top notch this last visit. One of our favorites ever.

We went to Crudo for the first time and met up with friends. The atmosphere is vibrant for sure. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the food. As a group, we had appetizers, salads, steak & lobster, sea scallops, sea bass steak and salmon. All the food was very good and we will be going back. The manager, Ivan stopped by for a chat. He seems to be very service conscious. Nice guy. We will become regular customers there.

I had friends recommend Crudo, so I took my girlfriend to check it out. It was smart to have a reservation, since the place was packed and several people were waiting. Our table was less than ideal, kind of in the middle of the room with the bar on one side and booths on the other. Traffic was constant back forth on both sides and the waiter had to move out of the way of other customers several times while serving. The noise and energy of the room made it difficult to have a private conversation with my date. The food and service was fabulous, but at this price point, I would hope for a better placement of a table for 2.

As a Seasons 52 regular it was time the venture out and try some place new for my birthday dinner with my wife and kids.

The menu looked appealing online so we made reservations and honestly had some “reservations” about eating seafood from Crudo since we had never been before.

We were seated promptly but it took the wait staff a bit of time to come by for our food order. Once they did they were friendly and attentive and shared info about the specials which all sounded fantastic.

The girls ordered and loved lobster ravioli, my wife enjoyed the stuffed shrimp and I can’t say enough superlatives about the blackened red snapper over avocado risotto!

Kind of pricey, but the seafood was cooked to perfection and fresh.

We will certainly eat there again!

It's been a while since we've been to Crudo. I forgot how good it is. The food is always outstanding. The crostini is really excellent. Don't miss it. We had pizza and pasta this night but we usually have the specials they have for the night. We were not disappointed with our food this night. The wine list is good. The service was excellent. Highly recommend Crudo.
