“Cajun Heaven”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

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.

“Interesting Venue and Fool”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

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!

“Always delicious”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“Very good food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

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 sides so it is a bit of a waste.

A friend of ours says the Roast Chicken is really good. I think I found the pork chops dry, but I am really picky about pork chops.

The pitted concrete floor has been exposed for many months now (it used to be carpeted.) I don't know what they are planning but they should get to it. It is very jarring to see, and not appropriate for an expensive restaurant. Other than that, the interior has a charming and romantic ambiance.

“Nice service but odd atmosphere”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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