This restaurant is permanently closed. Elegant Informality
Crudo is about the passion of traditional cuisine from the Mediterranean coast with Japanese-inspired infusions. Crudo prides itself with authentic and delightful ingredients with simple presentations.

Spice for Life
One of Crudo’s highlights is the signature trio dipping sauce selection served with several of our dishes such as sushi rolls and crudos. Chef Pascal Lorange replaced the traditional Asian-served ginger, wasabi and soy sauce with the elegant, yet refined homemade trio:
• Kumquat ginger with cilantro and olive oil
• Five-spice harissa sauce
• Aged balsamic vinegar with soy sauce and spices

Sophisticated Simplicity
While being sophisticated in creation and originality, Chef Pascal Lorange presents the majority of his dishes as gluten-free, with the exception of a few desserts. The menu also features a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan options.

Restaurant is CLOSED. Shame on not knowing this and ruining a 70th birthday celebration.

Food was over salted and some of it came out cold. It could have been due to the fact that it was their day after Thanksgiving and their usual Chef wasn't there. But for what you would pay, I expect the food to be a lot better.
Place and service were great though.

I really like this place. The atmosphere is so modern and sleek and the food is excellent. I highly recommend the Coconut Sea Bass. So yummy! The paella was a little too smoky for me but my husband loved it. Their Crudo Mule (Moscow Mule) was delicious too.

Delicious food, but better get more staff. No service was slow bartender or bus boys so service was slow and confused. Had a very nice woman server who filled in for our waiter.

We have come here a few times and every time we bring friends, it's wonderful to see their first experience with the great food we always enjoy. It is a bit loud at times but not annoying--it's fun! You can tell people are enjoying themselves and having a wonderful time. We've brought 4 different couples and friends here and each of them have thanked us over and over for introducing them to Crudo's.

We arrived at Crudo for our reservation and they were closed. There was no note or anything. I will not go there again.

Usually we are fans of Crudo. Unfortunately this was a bad experience. They seem to be struggling, barely any tables filled for a Friday night, service was awful (assume that they had a skeleton staff), food was great as expected but the branzino Crudo was not edible. We weren’t charged for it. Bathroom was in horrible shape and seemed like it hadn’t been cleaned all day. I hope that they can make it and stay open, seems like they are going through a tough time.

It took 20 minutes for a server to come to us after seated . Drink order took 15 minutes. Our appetizer was not fully cooked. Filet was thick on one end thin on other. Question if it was a filet as it did not look or taste like one. Meal came too close to the appetizer. Drinks were so so. Service sucked.
Crudo was a favorite....I feel bad . What happened? Service was excellent and food was good at previous visits. Our experience Friday was not good with service or food. I hope they realize and get things back again. It’s a lovely place.

Good food. Slow service. Somehow, they ran out of beef burgers for the lunch crowd.

Made a reservation for lunch and even received a confirmation text from the restaurant and then they were not even open when we came for our lunch!

Last week Crudo by Pascal Lorange cancelled our reservation 2hours before our reservation time due to ‘their kitchen having some issues.’ But it will be restored at 4pm if we want to have late lunch, they said. Since we’re about to fly out then, we decided to change our reservation at 2:30pm today thinking that they might be opened for late lunch as suggested. No one from the restaurant called us for cancellation today but when we get there, the restaurant was closed and the outside area looked like a mess. I will not recommend anyone to waste their time on this restaurant.

we showed up to our (confirmed) reservation only to find the restaurant closed - very disappointing to say the least.

still no response from Crudo - they don't seem to care.

I have been here before and the food is amazing! Restaurant was closed the day of our recent reservation. There wasn't even a note on the door.
