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.

The Crudo sampler and seafood soup are the winners at this spot. We tried the unit toast and crab which were not that great. I would not return as prices seemed to be a bit high for the average food quality.

Best seafood, service, ambiance the city has to offer. Visited the city for anniversary and ate at four different highly rated restaurants. However, Bar Crudo is the real deal. Worth every price!! Waitress recommendations were helpful and we were provided with the perfect dining experience. Must order the whole Branzino, oysters & lobster/beet/burratta salad!!

Every single bite we took was perfect! The Crudo for two melted in your mouth. I had 2 herb/jalapeno mussels and 2 prawns which were absolutely delicious. The Lobster Beet Salad is a must and we also had the roasted Dungeness Crab! It was all Perfection! Thank you for such a wonderful dining experience. It was my first time to San Fran!
