Walk in from the busy street, be calm at the wide table with the clean lines of Atelier Crenn. Artistic, thoughtful and beautifully executed are the components of the meal. The Chef herself comes to say hello to each table after the meal. Seasonally crafted, I remember the white chocolate filled with an appetiser aperitif. A feast for your eyes... More

Let me start by getting this out of the way - This is a "male" dominated environment, and Chef Crenn holds her own. WELL DESERVED 2 Michelin stars. WHEW! Glad I did that. Now, lets get to the basics. This is NOT your every day dining. This is "AFFORDABLE" poetic molecular gastronomy meets unapologetic technique. Chef and her immaculate team,... More

We had a very enjoyable meal. I highly recommend this restaurant. There was a lot if creativity put into the courses. The decor was simple yet nice. I didn't like how loud it got as the restaraunts filled up. It became increasing difficult to converse with my spouse. This is a common problem in your average San Francisco restaraunts, but... More

Rarely do we disagree with the Michelin ratings, but we do not understand how Atelier Crenn rates two stars. While the dishes were innovative, the "flow" of the flavors from one course to the next were uneven, with overwhelmingly sweet and/or salty courses that followed a light and crisp dish. For example, the onion soup was so sweet and simultaneously... More

We loved everything about Atelier Crenn. The decor was nice, the food was surprising and flavorful and the staff was attentive and smiling. The plates are little works of art. We ate with all our senses

Conceptually, Chef Crenn has brought to life an ingenious concept: a play onto the authenticity and organics of nature and all she has to offer. The exterior of the restaurant is obscure, once inside, simple settings with warm lighting make the dining room seem a little less luxurious. However, from the menu, the interpretation and translation into the food is... More

Dining here is a fantastic event if you are open to new and different experiences. It is Like dining in someone’s home. There is no printed menu. There is only one choice each evening and you really don’t know what you will be eating until you get there, but dietary restrictions can be accommodated. You will see a printed poem... More

Atelier Crenn has excellent, innovative food along with the most extraordinary and artistic presentation. The wine pairings are also very well done. It is well worth the money for a special occasion.

Everything was perfect. We loved the food, the interior and the ambiance. For the first time we ate 3.5 hours in the USA. This restaurant has all I love. They food is excellent and is art. The owner comes at the table to greet you and to thank you for visiting her restaurant. Expensive but worth the money. We recommend... More
