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

My husband and I agreed that this was one of the best meals we have ever had. We had the 20-course tasting menu because we were there on a Sat night. Normally in these long tastings, the last savory dish (usually red meat) is too much for me to eat. This night at Atelier Crenn, our last savory was a... More

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
