Going to Creola for lunch today with a group of 5, reminded me of how great the food, service and atmosphere are. I've been there a few times and it consistently has fantastic food and service. Our server was attentive and incredibly knowledgeable about the ingredients of the Cajun food we ordered or plan to order next time! My etouffee... More

The gumbo and the étouffée are very good. I love soft shell crabs and ordered one - it was the tiniest crab I've ever seen!!! All in all, it's good but very expensive for what you get. Service was spotty, but it was very crowded and so that could have been the reason.

Creola is one our favorite haunts. Their seafood dishes are always great. My husband loves the tuna and I adore the gumbo. The base has an almost velvety texture.

Creola has a great southern menu. We love when they have alligator jumbalaya on the menu. It has a great flavor!

Creola is one of our favorites and a regular place to enjoy a fine dinner with friends or family. From the outside you get no sense of how nicely decorated it is inside. A fine menu, good service, and easy access from mid-Peninsula San Francisco Bay Area.

Nice to have something a bit out of the ordinary - food was not cheap, but was well cooked and slightly different. Waiters were very attentive and the place was busy. Had the alligator, which was very pleasant - not something I had had before!

Love the tuna with wasabi. Never had a bad meal and some of the cocktails are wonderful, the Sazezrac especially. Good desserts and interesting beers.

I enjoy Creo La. My favorites are Shrimp Creo La and the Oyster appetizer. The house salad and combo pie dessert are very good also. I wish there were more choices for children (my kids split the fried chicken, with beignets for dessert.) The bill is high because the kids are eating adult entrees and they don't eat the accompanying... More

A very tucked away restaurant. Lacks atmosphere though the staff was very friendly. The complimentary cake was a bit odd.

This place was terrible. Way over priced bad food and poor service. Plus, the inside looks a lot like the outside, run down. Sure, it's located in an expensive area so I suppose the owner thinks it's okay to charge about $30 a plate, which would be fine if it was good, but it isn't good. The food wasn't prepared... More
