Nice decorated plates, not
Nice decorated plates, not to big portions. Much better than in average restaurants. Dessert was very delicious.
First we were a bit disapointed, because on the menue was not the same like we saw online. Should be the same!

The Cru was recommended to
The Cru was recommended to us by the person who organised our vacation home, we were over from Germany. Everything was excellent - our waiter (John), the food, the ambiance, the cocktails and wine. Nothing to complain about, only praise! Will revisit should we return to that area.

We went to cru for my birthday,
We went to cru for my birthday, we have been going to the melting pot for 20 years and I wanted something different. I looked up the menu online first, and loved the choices. I am an appetizer girl. Soooo we ordered the ahi tuna app, spicy crab roll app, and the short rib app. Now the spicy crab roll, was the best (sushi roll) I have ever had, the tuna was great, small but great, the short rib tasted like a regular pot roast to me, good but not 5 star dining. My husband order the filet and loved it and of course we ordered 2 dessert, first was the cheesecake (awesome), second was the norman love sample plate it was good if your a chocoholic, I am 50/50 on that, we will definately go back, for probably appetizers and dessert. Service A+

Our food and our service were
Our food and our service were outstanding. The only reason I did not give Cru an outstanding overall was we were seated in a romantic banquette which delighted us at first. Then the four businessmen at the table next to us started their meeting and we heard every word they said and none of what we said to each other. Some kind of funky sound transmission going on in the banquettes. If you want to hear your dining partners opt for a table. Otherwise go experience the "Stacked Ceasar Salad" and the "Herb Crusted Halibut " which was served over a three bean sauté. Both were delightful!

The food was excellent and our sever, Becky, was really knowledge, friendly, and helpful. It was a little noisy, but that's OK.

I dined here for dinner with a group of three and we all loved our entrees. Two of us had the Black Bass which was probably the best fish I have had in recent memory and the seafood risotto was very rich and flavorful. Drinks were tasty and strong. We sat in the dining area which was quiet, but noticed the bar area was loud and more popular with the younguns. May try out the bar area next time if I'm in the mood for higher energy dining or drinking.
Overall the food was excellent and the service was very attentive and accommodating.

Nice food presentation, knowledgeab
Nice food presentation, knowledgeable and friendly wait-staff. I was very happy to find that one of the specials was grass fed, organic, filet mignon on the bone. It was fabulous, as were the grilled vegies and potato-au gratin it was served with. They also had a Silver Palm cabernet that I favor. Unfortunately it was a 2010, not their best yr. but it was priced acordingly and was adequate. Overall, I'm very pleased and will be going back.

I've been here a few times
I've been here a few times and each time the food and service were top notch. But this time they outdid themselves. I told the waitress that I wanted a bourbon before my meal. She went away and came back with one of the bartenders. The bartender brought four different bourbons that were new to me. He provided a brief description of the history and taste profile of each and allowed me to sample each one -- I found a new favorite bourbon. Great service, or the greatest service ever?!?!

Had some amazing food here. We had a show in the area and I remembered having a good time here in the past. They had some amazing dishes which included fois gras, morel mushrooms, and swordfish. And a great wine selection to pair with their offering.
We will be back.

Such personal service! The waitress was great and gave great recommendations. She was very helpful and fun. The chef came out and talked to us, and he was SO nice! There were many items on the menu that looked good, so it was hard to decide. I had the ahi tuna and its was great. We had the coconut cake and chocolate cake for dessert and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I'm excited to go back!

WOW! We were completely blown away by the wonderful new menu items that we tried. First the Kale Caesar salad.....AMAZING!!! The Tuna, Black Bass, Free Range Chicken, Salmon and Filet Mignon were all PERFECT! Lastly, the Pineapple Upside Down Cake was one of the best desserts ever eaten. HOME RUN CRU!!!

Cru @ Bell Tower Shops
Wow! Dining around in Cape Coral and Ft Myers for a while (coming from abroad several times a year) we found another hot spot with excellent food an wine. Athough not having gone thru the complete menu enjoyed already several dishes worth returning. The chef well understands how to combine the ingriedents and creates outstanding dishes. My favorite: crispy duck breath.GREAT!
Location might be a little bit noisy at times (weekends) but dive in and enjoy. You'll love it.... Prices are at the higher side. If you look for a cheap meal visit another place! But you can not compare the taste as this is outstanding. The service was so far very good and attentive. Nothing to complain. We will come back!

OMG Great Food!!!
Came here for our 7th Anniversary, The food and service was seccond to none. probably the best i've had in Fort Myers area. Server was jovial and knowledgeable and attentive. Food was excellent! Recommend the "truffled Short Rib " appetizer. We shared it! fork tender to cut it was awesome. Entrees were both delicious but yet another recommendation, the Sea bass mmmmmm wish I had some right now!

Awesome Place to Eat
Came here with clients from out of town and it seems like this is our go-to place for dinner. We had a great time at the bar. It was slightly difficult to get the bartenders attention but it didn't change our mood. Dinner was fantastic and dessert was even better. Love this place. Our waiter was phenomenal, very knowledgeable and personable.
