We dined at Creo' at lunchtime with 20 friends and family members to celebrate my wife being sworn in as an attorney in New York. The service and food were fantastic. They did a wonderful job with serving a large group. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend Creo for a group of any size. The staff was prompt, professional,... More

We recently dined here on a Friday night with another couple. Our friends suggested it, so we agreed to meet them there. Our table was ready and we ordered some martinis to start, and they were very delicious. Our server was friendly and knew the menu, but after taking our order, he disappeared for a very long time. We wanted... More

My best friend and I came back to creo after a 6 month hiatus due to a bad experience. The VP got in touch with me and I decided to try it again. The server was hilarious and quite funny. He made us feel welcome although he waited too long between courses when the restaurant was not that busy. We... More

Open kitchen plan, friendly service, and the food specials were absolutely fantastic! From the main course to the apple bread pudding dessert, you can't go wrong. Highly recommended

This wasn't our first time to Creo. Went for my birthday since it was a weeknight and it's close to home. The reason I love it there is for its consistency. I've never had anything at Creo that I didn't like or that didn't come the way I ordered it. My usual there is the lobster and avocado tart which... More

I had lunch at Creo and was not impressed. The staff is lovely and the ambience is pleasant, but I found the lunch menu to be limited and overpriced. My salad was good but nothing special. I haven't dined there in a while so I might give it a try at dinner time in the future but, frankly, for the... More

Dear Sheila: Thank you for dining at Creo. I am sorry to hear that you found the lunch menu limited, but your comment is interesting and true. We typically run three to four specials for lunch and the same number for dinner. With that said, we do run fewer lunch items on our menu to ensure that we can execute... More

I wanted everything on the menu - so many unique dishes to choose from. Went here for Sunday brunch and it was excellent. Not crowded (was after 1pm) and service was great. Nice ambiance and absolutely delicious. Will be back.
