Best restaurant I've been to in Park Slope since Al Di La.
Food, wine, and service were really super good! The Atmosphere: blue light (no go), interior, the loud music and reflecting sound were absolutely not our cup of tea. Pretty hard to communicate.
This place is a wonderful new addition to the neighborhood, and heads and shoulders above any other option at this end of 5th Avenue. The Mediterranean-accented menu is freshly prepared from excellent ingredients, with enough complexity to keep things interesting, without being in the least bit fussy. Presentations are fine, but the emphasis is on the food, not merely on the visual aesthetic. I’ve liked everything I’ve tried. On this occasion my friends and I sampled the mussels – delicious in themselves, with just the right amount of gigante beans, feta and touches of sausage added. The Fattoush salad was another winner. (I hope they bring back the salad with “Park Slope” in its humorous name.) The ceviche, boquerones, and, of course, the oysters also got thumbs up from everyone. On other occasions, I’ve had the octopus, the branzino, and the merluza – all excellent. Service is very good, and the vibe ranges from friendly to . . . very friendly. Nice wine list, too. If I worked here, I’d also be greeting everyone warmly, with the confidence that comes from fronting a great kitchen. Definitely recommended!
Excellent and creative food ($1 oysters were a plus!) and service was great. They even brought a dessert for my daughter after I mentioned it was her birthday...:)
Just good food
Good food.. great wait staff .. music too loud.
This was our first visit to Bar Crudo. We were in NYC for our daughter's birthday and the restaurant was a short walk away from her place.
We were seated upon arrival and all the tables were full. Our server, Mike M, greeted us after a few minutes. We ordered glasses of wine and they came pretty quickly. Tried a Sauvignon Blanc from Ecuador, and it was pretty good.
We shared a couple of appetizers. We were seated just as Happy Hour was ending but they let us have Happy Hour prices, which included $1.00 oysters. We ordered a dozen and they were fresh, briny and delicious. We also shared an order of Arepas, which were good too.
For dinner our daughter had grilled octopus. She loved it and so did I. It had great flavor and was cooked perfectly. My wife had the tile fish. It also was cooked perfectly. I had the Fideua, which was chock full of mussels, clams and salmon. Awesome. We also shared a side of spinach Catalan, which was enough for 4 people.
Overall a very good experience!
The food was amazing!!! The oysters were outstanding. Great place for date night.
Delicious new restaurant in park slope. I will be a regular for sure. Outstanding service and delicious food!
We had a few starter items and main course dishes. First we started with a dozen raw oysters which were great. Another starter/appetizer to definitely order is the red snapper ceviche which was crazy delicious. For the main courses we ordered the branzino special (grilled whole fish w/ chimichurri style dressing-amazing), and a seared cod which was also wonderfully prepared. The staff are cool people who are excited to talk about their dishes and wine list which for me makes the dining experience memorable.
Great food and service but music is just too loud. No reason to be so.
Great food. Really loved all the seafood dishes and dessert. Large selection of wine as well. Nice ambience, friendly service, no complaints from me.
Wonderful new spot!! The food was all delicious and the happy hour specials are excellent
Top notch!!!! Excellent service, wonderful wine and the food, incredible. A much needed spot in park slope!!!
I can not state enough how much my husband and I enjoyed the meal from grilled fresh bread to dessert. We had a most unique appetizer called oysters escargot. It was so full of taste. We then shared the seafood paella which was also so flavorful and the rice was perfectly prepared. The flotant dessert was exceptional.
We cannot wait to go back !!!
This may be my first online review of a restaurant- ever. But my parents and I had such an amazing experience at Bar Crudo, I have to write something. The staff was extremely friendly: Everyone from our server to the bartender to the owner conversed with us at our table. The food was exquisite: The carrot-squash app was my favorite. And most of all, the owner had the chef bake and surprise my mom with a birthday cake! It felt as if the whole restaurant - patrons and staff- sang along to Happy Birthday as well. I haven't seen my mom that happy in years for her birthday celebration. We had so much fun. I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend Bar Crudo for birthdays, dates, friends getting together, or even going alone I imagine would still be great!
This is our new favorite spot! Literally everything my husband and I have tried here has been so delicious. This place opened up in December and we have been there 4x already. Ask them to pair a wine with your meal they have a pretty awesome selection.
Really good food with great flavor combinations. Very fresh seafood. Sexy interior. Warm and attentive service. There are even a few non-seafood options that are also excellent.
