Krio seems like a confused restaurant that doesn’t know it’s identity. Not quite fine dining although priced like it and our waiter was in a novelty pirate costume. The charbroiled oysters uses process cheese that doesn’t even melt. Would definitely not recommend to anyone as we were terribly underwhelmed for our date night.

We made a reservation for outdoor dining. Upon arrival, the hostess seated us at a table away from other tables, which we thought would be nice. Then we sat for 20 minutes with nobody coming over to greet us, bring water, take any order, etc. At that point we decided to take our business elsewhere. Sorry Krio, we were excited to try you out, but we won’t be returning. If we wanted non-existent service, we’d do takeout.

Delicious as always. Cocktails are too sweet for me, but the one love sauce is the best sauce hands down!

The food wasn’t all that great. My soft shell crab had fully developed shells- to the point where my mouth was cut up from the pieces.

Outside seating had a very trashy smell, so we would definitely recommend sitting indoors. The food had unique flavor. Crawfish were pretty small. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

We had intentions for having a full dinner but after a dozen oysters and a poorly crafter cocktail we decided to move on.
The oysters were not chilled? They were not warm but they should have been served colder than they were. The cocktail sauce was Bloody Mary mix. The gin and tonics were mostly tonic. When we asked about the drinks the excuse given was we have a new bartender. $ 90.00 is a bit steep for 4 smaller than average cocktails and a plate of warm oysters

This was my second visit to Krio. Last time we dined on the patio, however.

The vibe was super dope! Great music and the mimosa carafe is a great buy! I really enjoyed the fried okra and Asian wings!

The inside tables, chairs and windows needing a bit of attention, however.

The server was courteous, jovial and helpful! We will certainly return again.

First time being there and overall had a great experience. The restaurant was nice and clean. Staff was professional and attentive, gave great recommendations! We had the calamari, jambalaya egg rolls, shrimp basket, and the boiled shrimp in the sauce with the coconut milk (forgot the name) it was all delicious, the heat definitely builds. The only thing I could say is that the egg rolls were just way too hot in temperature to eat, ended up eating them towards the end, still a great experience and definitely will be back!

The food wasn't as great as it normally is. The egg rolls were cold. The oysters were dry and the service was super slow. It was not a great experience. I might take a break from eating here.

Good patio. Enjoyed cocktails, raw oysters, broiled oysters, fried oysters, clams, and snow crab. All very good. Music playing was too loud for my taste and way too tweenie style, but I'm an old dude LOL.

What a great restaurant. The service and food were amazing. We started with lemon pepper wings. They were so light and delicious. We then ordered po-boys. 1 shrimp and 1 soft shell crab. Wow!!! So good. We will definitely eat at Krio again next time we are in Dallas. As an added bonus it has a great little gifty shopping area 2 blocks down.

Food, cocktails, and service are outstanding at Krio. I recommend the chargrilled oysters and seafood boil in the "one love" sauce.

The food is just completely lackluster and there is not much bang for your buck. Everything needs salt and seasoning! The food was so bland and disappointing, we cancelled dinner and left. Drinks are light and even they needed a punch of flavor. It’s completely ridiculous that an Asian Creole mix flavors are so muddled and subtle.
