Good food, great atmosphere

My husband and I went to Creo for our anniversary. The food is Continental/American and very good. I liked the selection of dishes, and the decor of the place. I have returned for lunch with friends.

We were a group of 8 ppl from work. Great service! Ordered the following apps: fried oysters, tuna, calamari, all good. The hit was the calamari. The aged strip steak special was very good, and a lot bigger than advertised.

The atmosphere was very nice and ambient with the staff being really accommodating and helpful. No complaints on the quality of the food and the german white wine recommended was excellent. However being such a hip place we had expected the food to be a little more tempting challenging your senses with some exotic taste's.

I went here with a friend today. This place is always hip and cool, Atmosphere chic. The food is consistently incredible each time I go. I enjoy seeing the chef prepare the food. Our dinners were delicious. We each had desserts that were out of this world. I don't normally write reviews, but the meal was super. The desserts we... More

Stopped in for lunch with a couple of colleagues, and so glad that we did. Food was very good, great menu. Excellent unique selections. The service was excellent as well. Had the empanada special, others in my party ordered the lobster roll and fish tacos and no one was disappointed. Absolutely will return when in the area for work.

Try the roasted Brussels sprouts. CEO uses fresh ingredients and a healthy serving on imagination. It never disappoints.
