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.

Bar Crudo is an outstanding gem on the divis. An excellent, tight menu. Wonderful flavors (really the taste of Spain). A high performing service team - which makes the experience highly enjoyable.

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.

Everything was great, however at the end of the night I felt like it was quite a bit more expensive than a similar amount of food at a solid sushi spot. We spent $300 for two people, no alcohol.

The food quality was excellent, and they are, as suggested by the name, small bites. There are good happy hour values, but regular menu prices are high for the amount of food served. This is a high end cocktail bar.

You must love seafood to come to Bar Crudo. Otherwise, you should look for another option.
We started with oysters on the half shell, a nice selection from 6 kinds. We had the kumamoto and kushii. We then had the combo platter for appetizer which had the arctic char, tomba, fresh scallop, and cod, all raw. Very tasty. Our server recommended the order to eat them which was appreciated. Our next course was the lobster salad with arugula and burrata cheese, tomato wedges. Very fresh and tasty. Last course was the red snapper with pea shoots and tomatoes. We drank a beautiful Scribe Rose'. The place was lively and first time to sit upstairs. In the heart of Alamo Square..be sure to take a taxi cuz parking is difficult.

This has been our date spot for a few years. She loves oysters and this place has a great selection. The chowder is amazing and artic char has been phenomenal every time. The beer selection was good and I ended up with Caribbean Queen. The only gripe we had was the order of food being brought out(why would you give us a cheese plate last?). That and the waiting area can be a little cramped.
