This was our third visit and the food and service were outstanding for the third time. Our only negative is the restaurant is small and it can get so loud you can hardly hear yourself when you are talking. There was a party of four behind our table and they were so loud it became obnoxious. We will go back and just hope it’s a little quieter!
I've been trying to get my husband here for years, and we finally were in town when I could get a lunch reservation. He is hooked! He had the best sandwich he's ever had (pastrami special) and is raving to everyone about that and the Fried Green Tomatoes! Thanks!
We sat at the chef’s counter and loved watching them work. Food was plated beautifully and tasted great. Great service. Would go back.
Service was terrific! Mike took great care of me! Salmon and salad were quite tasty. Hank stopped by to say hi as I had eaten at the sister restaurant Purlieu last night. Table next to me was quite loud and boorish.
Great atmosphere and food- very pleasant experience!
The staff were very helpful and the food was the best we had while in Charleston,
We travel from Charlotte maybe once a year....and this is a place we go to lunch everytime!!
I have been coming to Charleston for 25 years, I’m 40. This is the most consistent, unbelievable original, oh and by the way it’s in a beautiful Charleston style home in downtown. There is usually a wait and they take reservations. I have walked up an waited over an hour to be seated. Was I mad hell no I was at Cru Café it’s worth any wait.
Food was exccllent so what's the service. The only complaint is that it is always noisy and you are so close to the other tables.
The Mac n Cheese is fantastic as is the poached pear salad. The restaurant is very cozy and has a great atmosphere. It has limited seating so reservations are a must.
