The restaurant is not well designed as the sound level is huge which makes it very difficult to have a conversation. The dishes are good BUT very pricey. After spending 200 dollars for 2 we went to have buy some more food elsewhere as the portions are not big. I will probably not return

I followed a recommendation from a bartender and I wasn't disappointed at all. I had so far the best chowder in San Francisco at bar crudo. Before we had excellent oysters and a very fresh fish prepared to almost perfection. We sat at the bar, we liked the atmosphere. It is a place I definitely come back next time visiting... More

It has become a tradition for me to go to Bar Crudo for happy hour when I'm in San Francisco. If you've never been, be sure to get there early as a line begins to form well before the 5PM opening for precious seats at the bar. Once seated, enjoy amazing oysters and fish dishes along with spot on wines.... More

Arrived at 5 minutes past 5 to a nearly packed venue. Sat at the bar and had mind blowing seafood chowder and the best fish tacos I've ever had- and I've eaten several awesome ones. Fantastic service too. My only issue is I'm not a local and won't be back to San Fran for years but when I am, this... More

We lined up 30 minutes before the 5pm opening to make sure to snag a spot at the bar on the friday of the Sept long weekend. The sashimi plates were amazing.

We enjoyed a really amazing dinner here. The raw seafood starter to share was amazing and out mains as well! Nothing at all to complain about! Only a shame that they didn't really have a desert menu, because I'm sure that would have been great too! The wine suggestions was good and I got some small stains on my suite... More

Happy hour is definitely a must! Outstanding oysters that are so fresh and so delicious! The service is great and the servers are so friendly! We enjoyed the Baja oysters and the fish tacos. And of course the white Vinho Verde. This restaurant is trendy with a great vibe.
