Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
Great local restaurant. Very cozy. Buttermilk fried oyster salad is the bomb!
We had the best ever snapper and scallops made superb with the dressings/sauces. Cru is in the hands of 5 star chefs--an experience to not be missed !!
Great food, ambiance and wait staff! Will definitely dine here again!!
Our dinner was delicious as always!! CRU is a fun restaurant. Interesting people. Superb server, our favorite, Talia. Can’t wait to return!!
Simple, flavorful food served by attentive staff. Put this on your list for lunch!
Great food, polite, helpful and friendly staff. I had reservations for the Chef’s Table. This is where you sit and you are able to see into the kitchen and watch the staff cook. However, I could tell that my wife didn’t like the set up and would rather be at a regular table. The staff moved us to a different location and the meal was great. The staff even gave us suggestions for bars that we could go to after dinner.
We have been eating at Cru’ for more years than I can recount. Always good to great food. We have never been disappointed.
We’re always in Charleston in February, but book our reservation the prior November - to make sure we get a table when we want. They’re that busy!
Always great service and delicious food.
Cru Cafe was great. I like the unpretentious atmosphere and the wait staff was incredibly fun and friendly.
Everything was delicious! From the appetizers to the desert. Made for a very special birthday!
Got compt on an appetizer since we were seated well after our reservation, but had some wine on the porch and a great experience.
Love josh and everyone at CRU
Of all the Charleston restaurants, it’s one of our favorites
Visit to Charleston for the day
Awesome service and amazing food!
Oyster salad special was yummy
Prob should have asked for dressing and bacon on the side but that is my preference
Oysters were perfect
Burger beyond good
Soup was a touch salty
Food is excellent! Service is great
Excellent as usual. Every time we stay in Charleston Cru is where we have lunch before heading back home. The food is always consistent of quality and quantity. We have had many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. I would suggest making a reservation because the place is not big. Enjoy!
I turned three friends on to the Cru Cafe on Saturday. They loved their lunches as much as I enjoyed mine. There are always two of three entrees that I want instead of just one. Although same is square footage, this is one of the city's finest restaurants!
Fantastic! Thank you!
We went to Cru in a quiet Friday night after New Years.it was the second or third time I’d been there, but the first time we’d managed to score a table on the porch, which was very intimate and pleasant on the mild evening. With this great ambience and terrific service, I really want to love the place. And while the food was good, it just wasn’t up to the level that we have come to expect here in Charleston. The Caesar salad was excellent, but my scallops and my husbands seafood risotto didn’t sing.
The food was great, but our order got behind a big group so we waited over 45 minutes to get our food. I would definitely go back. Our server was apologetic but it was too long to wait for food.
Was a great meal! Off the beaten track a little but so worth it. We both had amazing meals and it’s plenty of food! We will go back!
This was our second time at Cru. The scallops and fried oyster salad were prepared to perfection.
This is a wonderful restaurant!
This was truly one of our favorite Charleston food experiences. Food, service, ambience, everything was top notch. Will definitely return to this restaurant and recommend to an6 friends visiting the area.
This was the second time we have visited Cru Cafe. Both times our food has been great. We both ate the “fish of the day” which was tile fish. Prepared perfectly ! We will visit again when in town.
Food was great, fried green tomatoes with pork belly croutons was an awesome app (croutons are good enough on their own), Talia was a great hostess. Overall great meal.
The Salmon was excellent. My husband scallops were sweet and tender. Would definitely recommend
We came early because we were starving just thinking about our meal. The manager, young gentleman, was so kind in accommodating our request to eat earlier than our reservation. The food was excellent. Service could not have been any better. We eat here every time we visit Charleston.
One of our favorite lunch spots. Dependably good.
Food was not as expected
Everything was great. I just don’t like to be rushed bc there is another reservation for our table. We didn’t finish our dessert.
Fantastic food and service! We really wanted to try several different dishes... so we will definitely be back to try the ones that we could not this time!
Wonderful house turned i to restaurant, very nice staff and environment, not super expensive because alcohol is reasonable, recommended.
Excellent lunch menu and the service was great! The food here is amazing, and not to be missed.
