    Great ambiance. Only reason I gave 4 stars is that they didn’t have a certain drink available and portions were small. I have big men in my family and they can eat. They could have told us up front regarding drinks that was and was not available instead of waiting until we ordered. Otherwise, nice and fun staff.

    Had the steak. Considering this place is same group as born and raised pretty disappointed. Nothing very green on the menu for sides with steak. I.e broc, Aspar etc. Carrots were good and only veg as a side, didn’t want a salad. Which they do have.

    Used to be a fun restaurant you could go to for reliably good food, creative drinks, and conversation with friends. Has become a loud party bar with mediocre where you can converse with friend if you’re willing to yell at them. Shame…the old C&C is missed.

    Was not expecting much going in, to be quite honest, I'm not a huge fan of New American/Bistro/Bar Food/whatever you want to call it. The food was EXCEPTIONAL for the price, however. Highly recommend the duck tacos and the mussels. Wasn't brave enough to try the bone luge--maybe next time. Try to get there early and you can stop by the tiki bar speakeasy inside (False Idol) without a wait.

    Wonderful experience! This is my third time at Craft & Commerce and each and every time, my dining pals and I have enjoyed our experience. We ordered the Mac + Cheese with bacon (twice), Lamb Kefta Skewers, and Banana Bread Pudding. OMG, everything was amazing! We ordered various craft cocktails and enjoyed them all. Our server was on point the entire night, wish I could remember her name, but she was amazing! The icing on the cake... we were bumped up on the wait-list to check out False Idol, and I had been trying to get in there for some time now. Had a blast! We will definitely be back again, and yes...I highly recommend!

    Went In for my son and boyfriend’s birthdays. Their menu is minuscule compared to what it was 10 months ago. No choices for veggies other than fries and carrots. Didn’t even bother doing anything for birthdays and the girl helping the server was just so rude! Sorry you had to do the job you’re getting paid to do. The server was ok. Forgot a couple of our orders for drinks and apps.

    Great place for happy hour and some cocktails. OF the three cocktails I tried, each was well balanced. Particularly enjoyed the Lay Lady Lay and Brokedown Palace - worthy odes to some classic artists. The food was tasty - the duck wings were delicious.

    Place has great vibe and decor, service (host, bar and table) were all excellent and courteous. Drinks- very good: Whisky sour was on point, limited but solid draft selection, staff crafted a 'lemonade' for younger member of group which was great. Food was very good: Starters: Mac/chs w/bacon was very good (creamy & rich). Kale salad had, nice balance, simple but good as well. Main: Duck Leg Tacos were outstanding meat fell off bone, rich and flavorful with great presentation, C&C Burgers were very good (lacked any lettuce/tom, etc. - added via server afterwards @ xchrg $5÷2ppl) not unreasonable and svc was accommodating to request. Only drawback of experience was that weather was cooler and breezy on night of visit (our table didn't have heat source like several in restaurant). Chose to wait until interior table available. Hostess accommodated our request without resistance. After short wait, we were able to be seated in more comfortable location. (Note: Didn't hold conditions against establishment, but weren't quite prepared for temp and staff was polite through process- much appreciated. ) Overall great experience and highly recommend.

    We were really disappointed with Craft and Commerce. The food was pretty good but the menu was limited and the service was not great. First, the server spilled a tray of drinks down my friends back. It was really bad, he was soaked for hours, even after we left. They gave us a 15% discount on the drinks, which was a nice gesture, but the server was not very apologetic. The manager never came by to apologize. I used to serve if I had done that someone I would have been beside myself. It didn’t feel like they cared much at all. Afterward the service wasn’t particularly attentive either. Our server took a long break at some point, before we even ordered. We had to flag them down to take our cards. On top of it the restrooms were open to the public and completely filthy without toilet paper. It was super disappointing.

    Food options are unique (I'd say hint of southern food?) compared to other restaurants around. The service was great. Even though I found a little fruit fly in my glass of wine, our waitress was apologetic and took care of it right away, so I have no complaints. It's a little loud to have a normal converstion.

    The oysters are my absolute favorite thing to order here. But they were sooooo tiny this time, didn’t taste the same, and it no longer comes with seaweed salad. The seaweed is so essential because it would pair so well with the oysters. However Duck tacos were fantastic!

    Showed up with a large party. I understand it’s hard to accommodate and we did get seated party to party. For spending close to $500 I found it absolutely ridiculous at the type of service we received. Sure, big and young parties are a burden, loud & hard to take care of but it seemed that all waiter/waitresses avoided us at any cost. After one round of drinks were ordered we were left and not attended to. Overall, a poor experience that will keep us from coming here ever again! Respect the people who bring you business. I’m looking forward to writing a similar review on yelp, hope you enjoy reading it!

    Overall experience was okay. Lighting was poor and we could not read our menus. Music was too loud to carry on a normal conversation. Our server seemed like he had too much going on or did not care to tend to our table properly. Food was excellent. Drink selection did not have a variety of offerings (no vodka or cranberry juice?) Likely would have been better with a few tweaks of service and noise level.

    This place has both good food and drinks, and doesn’t have the “tourist only”’vibe you often get closer to the Gaslamp/convention area. Grilled bone -bone marrow, tiki drinks are my faves here. On the other hand I would not go here if you are looking for mind-blowing culinary revelations.

    Service was lackluster but not horrible. We had to ask multiple times for another water glass, waitress was absent for a while so we had to wait a bit to place our dinner order (had to ask a buser to get our waitress for us so we could order), and she didn’t check in on us much at all otherwise. They were out of biscuits appetizer so we asked for just a side of toast for the kids to tide them over. Toast had been grilled and was charred on about half the bread. We scraped off the char because kids were super hungry and server wasn’t coming around much. We DID get biscuits with the fried quail dish, and they were delicious, so I’m assuming they just didn’t have enough of them for people to order outside of the entrees. The greens and beans that came with the quail were fine…nothing special, but tasted ok. The quail was very good. Also had the lamb skewers, which were good although more tzatziki sauce would have been good (it was sparse). The pita was really tasty. Other three in our party got the burger, which everyone said was good. We also ordered the raclette fries which were fine. The cheese firms up really quick so you have to eat them fast. I’ve had better raclette fries but these weren’t bad. The music was crazy loud. Staff had to repeat themselves a few times, and it was hard to hear others at the table (there were 6 of us). Plus we were seated at a table that is exposed to the street (open air patio seating), so mix the super loud music and street noise and it was a bit too much. I’d go back with girlfriends for drinks but I wouldn’t do it again for a dinner with my older family members. And honestly I’m not sure I’ll go back for dinner anyway since the service was just blah. I’d go back for the bar though…I’d love to try some of the cocktails.

    Good solid menu, executed well. Fun and tasty drink options. Just a bit disappointed they aren’t super accommodating for certain allergies that should be easy fixes—all sauces are aioli / mayo based and I was dining with someone who had an egg allergy. The only option they have is hot sauce. They don’t serve ketchup there, but also make a special sauce (similar to thousand island) that contains ketchup. We ended up taking our food to go and skipping on a second round of drinks so we could enjoy our fries at home. I understand wanting to not serve basic ketchup, but for a menu that had vegan dishes, it seemed a bit weird they didn’t have any other options condiment wise.

    Food is just ok-drinks are delicious. Raclette cheese fries were good until the cheese clumps when the food cools off. Duck tacos are totally deconstructed so more work but my husband liked them. Love the atmosphere so I gave up on vegetarian and keto friendly/m-not too many options.
