Outstanding!!

Wonderful ambiance, great service from Nate- and it was fun to talk some Giants baseball with him- and an incredible meal with a nice bottle of Spanish red. All at very reasonable prices. Will visit again next time we are in town!

I recently went here for late lunch with a friend. Thought the food was excellent, service was good, pricing was a bit steep, even for what we got. I understand the cost of food, but nevertheless 3 shrimp for $12 is out of line.

I came to Criollo on a recommendation from a friend that is in the industry. The food and service are fantastic. The physical space is design flows with the aesthetics of the food menu.

The food was excellent and inventive in every way made with great local ingredients. The service was fast and thoughtfull . The only flaw is that the place is way too loud.

My friend spotted the Happy Hour sign out front and we were lucky enough to have gotten a table out on the patio. We just had the margaritas and fish tacos that were on special. Got the tacos pretty quick but waited a long time for the Margaritas. It seemed to have gotten extremely busy just after we arrived. The... More

Being from Texas, I'd never heard of "smashed avocados". It was guacamole and it was good. Enjoyed the enchiladas, the tacos and the variety of salsas. Good meal.

We started with happy hour, which was recommended by several locals. Great margaritas. We tried the jalapeño and the cucumber dill. Sounds weird, but very refreshing. I would describe the food as a Latin fusion. Great use of spices that created some excellent earthy flavors. The flank steak with chimichurri sauce was killer! Small wine list of South American wines,... More

Go early as it fills up fast due to small space, by 5:30 there was a line out the door on a Friday. Have the cucumber dill margarita if you like something fresh and creative. Duck tacos were moist, but the meat did lack some seasoning such that the other toppings overpowered the flavor. However we love duck and no... More

Such a varied menu and great mixologists for unusual cocktails! Would not be good for kids- better for foodies and those willing to try something different. Long wait without reservation so we sat at the bar. Paella was delicious! Casual atmosphere, a little pricey.

The worst thing about Criollo was deciding which offering to select. I ordered the Mesquite Chicken which came with field greens and poblano cheese grits. The chicken was very good, however I can't seem to stop thinking about how incredible the grits were! I will return for the grits alone. I ordered the Peaches and Cream Ice Cream. The base... More
