Atelier Crenn is a one-of-a-kind place--the menu is basically a poem that gives a clue to each course. The courses are incredibly beautiful, but "precious" in a way that some people just don't have the patience for. Not a steak-and-potatoes, or "we've got tickets to a show in 90 minutes" kind of place. The chef was so gracious--she knew the... More

My wife and were invited here by a super star chef from Paris, who was in the city visiting all Michelin Star restaurants here and in NY. His restaurant, in Paris is AT! Wonderful I might add. It was a amazing experience to be guests of someone who appreciates spectacular food, creativity, and tastes, and discuss the dishes prepared, and... More

The desserts at this restaurant are incredible and out of this world along with the food that comes before.

My husband and I traveled to San Francisco for our 5th anniversary. We had dinner our first night in the city at Gary Danko, and it was absolutely superb. We were excited to try something new in Atelier Crenn, and we felt lucky to secure a reservation. I do a lot of research prior to trying a new restaurant, and... More

We were keen to check this out, Crenn having just been elevated to two stars, and so were hordes of other foodies. As an indicator of newfound fame and popularity, tables were jammed packed and intimate romantic dinners became challenging. Indeed one risks having celebratory champagne spilt on one's lap such was the need for waiter dexterity and agility to... More

Myself and my partner were in San Francisco on holiday and thought we woukd try here for our first Michelin starred meal. On arrival we were met and seated in a very professional manor and the restaurant was very pleasant if a bit on the small side for the amount of tables. We decided on the grand tasting menu without... More

I don't cook, and I don't eat fast food, so I do restaurants on a daily basis, and I am ridiculously selective with my restaurants, so I tend to eat mostly good food, sometimes really good food, occasionally excellent food, and every so often exceptional food. Atelier Crenn went beyond exceptional. It blew my mind. I usually like eyeing the... More

My husband and I have had the pleasure of eating at some of the finest restaurants in the country including some that were extremely expensive and underwhelming , particularly those known for their "molecular gastronomy". I was reluctant to visit Atelier for fear of another repeat experience of an inflated bill, yet leaving both hungry and angry. But that was... More

We came into the city after a week in Napa to specifically eat at this restaurant and we were blown away with the experience. Each and every person was warm and attentive. The service was impeccable and seamless. No matter who was serving, pouring, or clearing, there were smiles and a true desire to make sure our evening was wonderful.... More

We went on a Friday night for this dinner. It was a bit difficult to find the restaurant as there is no signage outside other than the address. Street parking or valet parking available one block from restaurant. We were seated at a small table for the two of us, the restaurant seats 40 people very closely. No table clothes... More
