Food was excellent.
Cool, young vibe but busy so service a little slow.
Loud for conversation.

Such a fun and relaxing night! The food was good, the service great, and the atmosphere fun. I really appreciated the servers being attentive, but not intrusive. Love the fun holiday decor and the raclette fries - oh my! A bit chilly, but the blankets offered helped. Great night!

The food was lovely. The service was slow, but the place was packed so I assumed there weren't enough servers. Make sure and bring a jacket you can eat in, because even in December all the patio windows are open and the inside is cold. The Holiday drink menu was lovely and delicious

The cocktails are amazing. Everything else (including the food) was lacking, most lacking was the service. The place was busy, so I wasn’t expecting a lot of attention, but it was one of those experiences where we weren’t visited very often and when we were it was very rushed and just not very pleasant in general. I felt like they just wanted us to leave so they could flip the table. We had about 3 different people randomly coming over to quickly ask if we were ok, take plates, etc. I’m not even sure who our actual waitress was.

Had a great experience for anniversary. We got complementary champagne, ordered bone marrow, grilled oysters and duck tacos. Duck tacos are out of this world, everything else was great too.

Ingredients not listed on menu were added to the tartare which made it taste off. Server was able to take it off the menu. We opted for another bone marrow since it was delicious.

By far the WORST seats I’ve ever sat in at a restaurant. It’s like a torture device! HIGHLY recommend going elsewhere until they change the seats.

Food was decent, overly salted. Overall grade - D

This is one of my favorite places of ALL time! It’s literally magical when you walk in…the ambience and the gorgeous design.

The amount of small, special details are impressive here; from the toothpicks to the delicious food being served steaming hot.

after reviewing the menu at home we were looking fwd to having the Grilled Whole Branzino; very disappointed that the menu had changed (we understand new chef) and so we settled for other things on the menu to sample. really wanted fish.

our server was attentive considering the number of people crowding the place.

we were expecting good dining, but realize that Craft & Commerce is more of a bar catering to drinks and bar(ish) food.

Cannot recommend this place enough.

The Nashville Hot Fried Chicken was delicious and more than enough for two people. The biscuit it comes with was great.

The vegetables were well cooked and a perfect compliment.

Food was very good, service was a bit lacking but I’ll attribute it to the restaurant being extremely busy. The drinks, food, and ambiance were all very good. Reservations should be made, it’s always packed in the evening.

We came in to grab some drinks with some friends.
We came in at 10:30 so maybe the kitchen was closed, or they had switched to their late night menu. Late night menu wasn’t too impressive, so we declined ordering food.
Our table thoroughly enjoyed their cocktail choices.
The service was ok. I don’t know whether the server had too many tables, or the service bar was slow, but it did take a while for the drinks to arrive as well as table check ins.

Duck tacos & steak frites were delicious, as were the cocktails! The biscuit is basically dessert & is incredible. Fun atmosphere, was shocked at the low cost of the bill too. Would definitely go back!

I love the theme here. I'm a huge taxidermy fan. This place is like the Natural History Museum in LA, or if you recall, that Sheryl Crow video from like 15+ years ago. The taxidermy is very well done, none of the weird stuff with googly eyes and human teeth. The lion taking down the wild boar at the main bar is fabulous.

I like that the street side is somewhat open so it's dining al fresco which is always lovely to do in San Diego. Most of the chairs don't have any cushion which can make sitting uncomfortable unless you're blessed like JLo.

I got the C+C burger. Very flavorful, cooked perfectly and it's reasonably priced. I wish they had ranch or ketchup for the fries though. No vodka is served here so plan on drinking something else if you want a cocktail.

Went to False Idol afterwards, the attached, hidden Tiki bar. Staff was so unbelievably nice and helpful. Drinks were delish! I got the Mac Nut Cha Cha. Like a pina colada but with a macadamia nuttiness to it. It was quite good.

Whether resident or tourist to San Diego, it's well worth dining here.

Great Dark setting, flames/lights at tables make it feel more personal and secluded. Friendly staff, food came quickly and they accommodated our reservation even though we were a tad late. Food was great and the old fashioned there was one of the best I’ve had.
Highly recommend this place for a night out.

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was excellent. We had the mussels which did not seem entirely fresh and some were not open. This was accompanied by mostly burned toast and a sauce that lacked distinct flavor. Our other plate was the beet and burrata salad which was mostly arrúgala with a dollop of burrata and just a few small squares of beets. We asked for more beets and were promptly brought a small bowl full which was very nice. In the end we were not as impressed with our meal as we would have liked to but we had a nice time.

Been here before and it was absolutely delicious. Came here again visiting from LA and the food was really bland this time. Bone marrow was cold and steak frites weren’t flavorful at all. Still coming back though! Sure it was just a one time thing.

Our server Astin was great and all the staff were very accomodating and even was able to get us inside the secret bar inside (False Idol). Drinks are moderately priced and food is great!
