Portions extremely small, bread colder than room temperature, scarce explanation of menu by waitress. I spent $ 200 for 2 but left still hungry. The quality was very good.

The very best oysters and mussels we have ever had. We shared a fabulous lobster salad and the Seafood Chowder was to die for. Exceptional meal, outstanding service!

Excellent oysters at a great happy hour price of $1.50 each. They were small, sweet and succulent! Nice wines too for $5.00. Definitely worth the drive. You must have a reservation if you want dinner because the place is very small. The Whole fish special was much better than the red snapper, even though both were good.

The Seafood Chowder is out of this world. Hands down the most impressive menu item. Their beer list is rock solid and the raw food (crudo, oysters, and such) is amazing but falls just shy of the Seafood Chowder. Would eat again.

Fresh seafood served in a lively (noisy) environment.
We found our entrees (lobster salad, bronzini) to be well prepared and tasty.
The oysters were fresh ... we liked the New Brunswick selections better ... personal preference.
Our overall experience was good, not great. We've had better presentations elsewhere in a more relaxing environment and at more reasonable pricing.

We are in the Bay Area for our 1st anniversary and a good friend recommended Bar Crudo. Service was excellent, Food was also amazing. We had the Crudo Sampler and the Large Platter. The wines list was well thought out and interesting.
My only complaint was with another dinner and his inability to not yell when talking. This is a busy restaurant and loud but not to the point where you need to yell. I might also just be getting older.

We had high expectations and were excited for Bar Crudo. The menu was small, which I generally like -but in this case the menu was one note. The raw fish “crudo” was uninventive and bland and the vibe was rushed. We felt hurried from the moment we arrived and were left mostly unattended thoughout our meal looking for someone to order more food and wine. Our server gave us very little information even when we pushed for clarification on portions and the dishes, and was very little help. For example I asked how large is the cup and or bowl of chowder. The answer in a sarcastic response was a “bowl is two cups”. Traveling more than 200 day’s a year I appreciate quality over quantity when it comes to food, but Crudo takes it to the extreme. The price point is pretty much rediculous.

Excellent food, however, this restaurant should advertise that it does not have a full bar and that you cannot enjoy a drink at the bar before or after your meal. I found their policy that only walk-ins who want to eat at the bar can sit at the bar to be offensive. We made a reservation, confirmed the reservation by phone and arrived early to enjoy a cocktail before dinner. We were told we could stand near the bar but not sit at the bar. Very strange and the hostess was militant about explaining their system. Otherwise, the waitress did a great job in guiding us toward excellent menu suggestions.

The crudo sampler is always fantastic, the san sebastian tapas, as are many of the hot dishes. Wines and beers are hit or miss - ask for a taste before ordering. I've never been there when it's been anything less than *very noisy - so keep that in mind re: anyone hard of hearing or trying to hear what your date's saying - but the food is worth it. Lovely, knowledgable waitstaff always has great recommendations.

It was a last minute decision, as we had a change of plans and needed somewhere that served late to accommodate our small group. We were thrilled to dine at Bar Crudo as it was known to us by reputation only and a convenient location to get to. Staff greeted us warmly, service was professional and friendly, and the food was perfection.
Thank you.

I went for a birthday party with 7 friends, and there was one spot we could work with for that. Scheduling was easy and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Food itself was excellent, but there are small portion sizes. Comparing to similar bars with excellent food, you could say that the dollar does not go as far, so just know that going into your experience and you will enjoy it.

The service here is phenomenal, exactly what I expect for the price tag. I completely forgot to warn them ahead of time that one member of my party had an onion allergy. They worked with us to come up with options and even with that delay they still got all the food out quickly and at the same time..

The wait staff aren't just friendly, they have charming personality and build a rapport as you dine.

I strongly recommend for smaller parties (not a large space), and it would be excellent for a date.
