Company Overview:

Located in the heart of San Francisco's downtown financial district, Credo opened on Martin Luther King Jr. day in 2010 and has been a hub for business lunches, intimate dinners, corporate events and social gatherings for over a decade. Credo is the Latin word for “I believe.” We believe that good food and good company go hand-in-hand. We believe in authentic ingredients, creative preparation, and gracious hospitality. Our chefs create a menu that reflects their deep appreciation of Italian culinary traditions combined with Northern California sensibilities. Through their hard work, they are able to create robust and complex flavors from simple, seasonal ingredients.

Credo is part of The Merchants Exchange, the hospitality division of Clint Reilly Landmark Properties. The Merchants Exchange team has more than 50 years combined experience hosting and producing special events in San Francisco.  From planning and logistics, to production, management, and in-house gourmet catering, the Merchants Exchange is the only fully-verticalized event production service tied exclusively to three of the city’s finest venues – Julia Morgan Ballroom, Merchant Exchange Club and Credo Restaurant.  That’s why every program executed by the Merchants Exchange is more than an event, it is a true San Francisco experience.

Californian, Italian

Upscale Casual, Restaurant Group

Located in the heart of San Francisco's downtown financial district, Credo is a hub for business lunches, intimate dinners, corporate events and social gatherings. Our chefs creates a menu that reflects their deep appreciation of Italian culinary traditions combined with Northern California sensibilities. Distilling robust and complex flavors from simple ingredients—including local produce, sustainable fish and imported Italian specialty items—and classic preparations, our selections are quintessentially Italian...with a distinct point of view. Foraged mushrooms from Connie Green, asparagus from Zuckerman’s Farm, and tomatoes from Ed George all contribute to make our menu unique.

Credo is the Latin word for “I believe.” We believe that good food and good company go hand-in-hand. We believe in the time-honored tradition of the dinner table debate and the value of impassioned points of view. We believe in authentic ingredients, creative preparation and gracious hospitality.

Diners seated in the main dining room are surrounded by 15 gigantic, soaring art panels displaying a dizzying array of quotations beginning with the words “I believe.” Each panel is an assemblage of comment and commentary built on found ideas, from the inspired to the absurd, the sacred and profane, on topics ranging from race to sex to war. Nothing is off limits.

In all, they contain more than 42,000 letters, 10,000 words, over 600 quotations, by some 575 people of varying degrees of fame or infamy. In an indirect way, Credo celebrates the time-honored tradition of the dinner table argument – that venerated off-the-cuff verbal slugfest punctuated by interjections of gastronomic delight. Nothing enhances a great meal like an exciting conversation, and our walls will get the discussion rolling.
