Bar Crudo is a very pleasing and worthwhile experience. I am left without any grievance to complain of, which is unusual in the local dining scene. Food was consistently enjoyable and well-prepared, and service was always at beck and call without being intrusive.

Crudo for two is the best. Octopus was very good. Bonnie and Danni great servers. If you don't appreciate shrimp, bacon, and hot peppers, give the seafood chowder a miss.

I was pretty upset that the restaurant knew it was my wife’s birthday and did not provide any dessert and did not even mention anything until I brought it up to the waitress

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Celebrated wife’s 40th and were pleased with about every aspect. Would have liked a few more dessert options but Bi-Rite was right across the street so it was all good.

Everything was literally amazing. Our server suggested a terrific wine from Etna. The seafood could not have been any fresher or better prepared. I brought a close friend from NYC (and they of course think everything is better there). He was blown away. The uni toast is off the rails. Wow.

We like two of the four crudos we tried. We ordered the peel and eat prawns. What a disappointment! They were cocktail shrimp that reminded me of dinner parties at my grandma’s. The branzino was very good. There was only one dessert options so we went to bi-right across the street for ice cream. I don’t feel the need to return.

Oysters were delicious. Mussels were fantastic. Uni toast is a must have! The crudo plates were the least memorable. I should have just gotten more shellfish. Finished the meal with the whole Branzino which was excellently done. I would definately recommend this place to any seafood lover.

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.
