My husband and I were walking through the busy Gaslamp Quarter when we grew hungry. We approched Croces without knowing anything about the place. Luckily it was a little early by dinner standards and they had a seat for us. I didn't know until my husband told me that Jim Croce was a musician. (Sorry, Jim Croce fans! No disrespect.) But I did think, "Oh no! It's going to be rubbery, microwaved food like all those other famous people who try to have restaurants."
I was wrong! SO WRONG! I ordered the free-range chicken and gobbled it to the last morsel. It was fantastic! My hubby had the duck and was equally pleased with his choice. The baked brie appetizer was the perfect start and there was excellent music pouring from the bar. We were very happy with the service, too. We left remarking that we had to comment on this place.
It's a busy place on the corner of the main drag. Expect a little bit of chatter noise and people watching (watching you!) if you're on the patio. If you're looking for intimate, this may not be it. But stop for a drink, app. and some toe-tapping.

We had our "post" anniversary celebration there this past weekend. Made dinner reservations for 7:30 inside the bar area as we knew that it would be crowded by the time the band came on at 8:30. Good thing too as it got packed.

The wait staff was very attentive, Crystal was excellent. The manager, Scott, came to check on us. We met Ingrid which was a THRILL for me.

The food was superb. My duck was prepared to perfection. My wife's scallops she tells me were delish.

The band which was a latin jazz band called Agua Dulce was FUN, FUN, FUN. They even played Sabor a Mi upon request during their first set.

Go to Croce's and you will not be disappointed. Valet across the street for $15-20 or plan to have a major tough time finding parking as the Gas Lamp district gets very insanely busy.

Thanks for an awesome evening.

The whole experience was delightful. We took advantage of the Dine Out San Diego menu...the waiter was gracious, the food arrived promptly, hot and fresh. We were able to order one dinner and share, wonderful since we were not overfull when we danced afterwards to a gifted Latin/Jazz group of 6 musicians.

My fiance' and I went to Croce's on a Wednesday night. It was not very busy, but the service was terrible. I waited 30 minutes and was never even acknowledged. When I complained to the manager, he did buy us 2 glasses of wine, but never apologized and never came back to see if we were being treated better. After the bartender was told that we complained, he had a VERY bad attitude and even "stared us down" as if he wanted a confrontation. WE WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN!!
