These days, there are some great places to dine in Phoenix, but, to my thinking, this is the best. The room is comfortable, the service friendly and solicitous and efficient and knowledgeable, the wine list a broad and deep, and food is delicious and adventurous. You can get game here!!! Quail, guinea hen; plus things like lamb belly, pork belly,... More

I went to dinner with a friend about 1 year after my first visit. We were seated promptly, I asked for a banquette ( bad back ) and got it. I ordered a bottle of Badoit and a bottle of BTL Watson Chardonnay $ 75 ( I regret they don't have good Chardonnay under $ 50 ) Our waiter Cozzi... More

We've eaten at this restaurant 3 or 4 times now and it has yet to disappoint. On our most recent visit, three of us enjoyed the fixed price menu. You can order individual entrees, or chose 3, 4 or 5 items from appetizers, entrees and desserts ($40 for 3 items, $50 for 4 and $60 for 5 - NOTE: this... More

Crudo has been a favorite, and I'm hoping I was just there on an off night. However, when you have to send back undercooked poultry, there's a problem. The evening started well with the usual great drinks in the bar. The first raw course was good to acceptable with the octopus a little chewy. Then the real problem was upon... More

This restuarant is hidden from view in the back of a strip mall and is outstanding. Chef Cullen is creative and knows how to combined textures and flavours . The presentation is pleasing. I had a very crisp, fresh well dressed'Farmer salad' followed by the semolina gnocchi, then the melt in your mouth tender lamb belly. The flavours were exquisite.... More

The food is uniquely prepared and presented and is on par with the best chefs in the country! For the quality of the food, it is very reasonably priced. From about 25 options, you can choose any 3 for $35 or any 4 for $45. Being adventurous, the fried pigs' ears and the bone marrow options brought us to Crudo... More

We stopped here for Happy Hour. The bartender was very nice and we had a nice conversation with her. Since it was our first visit, she helped us with our food and drink selections. I had some of their bubbles and my husband had a glass of wine. We sat and enjoyed the surroundings, which are eclectic and comforting. After... More

I guess I was not expecting too much from Crudo, since I don't really associate Italian food with creative gourmet food. Thankfully, Crudo set me straight. Here's what I discovered: - The food was inventive, complex and delicious! The menu can be a little tough to work through since there are a lot of unfamiliar terms and unusual combinations. Our...

We visited Crudo for my birthday, and every bit of the meal was a real treat. The food was delicious, unique, and aesthetically pleasing, and our server was friendly, efficient, and professional. Although I am not a big drinker, the cocktail list was very enticing. We each ordered three courses and discussed the cocktail list, settling on one appetizer, six... More
