Not impressed with the small portions and high priced for the value of the food. I was not in to French fries being served with steak.

Service good but the noise level was awful. We had to yell at each other across the table. My husband is hearing impaired and he was miserable all night. Food was average.

Great options. Food was very tasty and filling. Only drawback- Appetizer eggplant Parmesan came “steaming” hot - you could see the steam off the plate but the eggplant patty itself was far less than hot. May be a frozen patty although it was cooked well and crusty enough. Heated patty would’ve been a much better customer experience.
Everything else was great. Service was wonderful. Seated right away. Bread refills on time. Wonderful place

The food is consistently good at Crudo and the service is impeccable. Carlos took great care of us, anticipating what we needed before we had to ask. It’s rare to find restaurants that are properly staffed with competent people. I don’t mean to sound jaded but other places could learn from Crudo.

We had another delicious dinner at Crudo restaurant last Saturday. I had Pasta Boulinaise the best I have had in a long time. It is a do over. My husband had plank Salmon. All was great. If you have never eaten at Crudo it is time to do so. It is a comfortable place and they seem glad to see you. Their Maple Roasted 1/2 chicken is also a favorite. They have a great bar as well and an adequate wine selection .

Food is always consistently good from the focacia when seated to the meals. My friend and I shared the Eggplant dish and the Rib eye crostini and both were amazing. The food is always memorable.

Oh my where should I begin?? This is the 2nd time my husband and I ate here. The food is very good and the waitstaff are very nice and professional.
The first time we ate here we sat at a two top and were hit from every side by people as the placement of the table does not work well.
We decided to try it again because the food is yummy.
Well we ordered the happy hour red wine by the glass but were charged $11 instead of the $5 happy hour price. Also, our pistachio mousse we ordered had a big piece of chewy rubber in it that my husband spit out on the table it was so large. The waiter was nice to get us a new dessert but still charged us for it.
When we got home I asked to see the receipt (we saw someone we knew there so didn’t review it at the restaurant) and realized they overcharged us. Called 3 times to the restaurant with a promise the manager would call back which she never did. I had to call her and she immediately told me she has kids and is busy and didn’t have time to call back. I told her I appreciate all that but that I can’t believe this has been so hard to rectify. She said she could either mail me a check or we could come by and she would credit our credit card. However,she wouldn’t be around for a couple days so we could speak to the assistant manager whom she claimed would be there around a certain time and for us to come to the restaurant. When my husband arrived the assistant manager was not there and the waiter (who was very pleasant and helpful) had to call him to come there. He arrived and proceeded to argue with my husband telling him they don’t have a house wine for happy hour and then showed him the happy hour menu which does show a house wine which is when he finally said he would credit us back. We’ll see if the credit goes through but the managerial staff are horrible!!!

The venue was extremely small. There was no place to wait for the table. We had to stand directly in front of people at their tables. It was extremely uncomfortable. My food was not hot. I expect mine was the first one ready for the table so they had to wait to bring it, so it began to cool down.
The service, however, was really good.

Crudo is a really nice restaurant but sitting at a small table for two in the middle aisle of the dining room I heard every word from the bar patrons sitting and standing at the bar. I prefer the restaurant for lunch when crowd is more manageable and I can have a conversation with my husband.

Who doesn't love brick oven? Was a little nicer than we anticipated, but that also brings in nicer and more respectful clientele. We got there earlier than our reservation and they were kind enough to go ahead and seat us anyway. For a first time visit, I have nothing bad to say about this place.

Returned to one of our favorite places, but was disappointed that we sat for 15 minutes with a waiter walking all around us but never making eye contact. I finally went to the hostess and ask for a wait person. She came and took our drink order, saying she was a "hostess/waitress." Shortly after a new waitress arrived, introduced herself and said she'd return quickly with our cocktails. After that point, everything went smoothly and food and service was what we've always enjoyed.

Was disappointed that the one waiter refused to even tell us that someone would be with us, especially since he had waited on us twice before!!!!
