Awesome service and amazing food!
Food is excellent! Service is great
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
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.
Tiny spot but not one you soon will forget. This was my second time here, both trips in to enjoy Charleston. The Fried Green Tomatoes with Pork Belly croutons, you can't miss!!
A perfect and cozy little spot, Cru Cafe has about the best dinner in Charleston. That is quite an accomplishment! Had tile fish cooked perfectly, scallops that were melt-in-your mouth fabulous and a truffle-mushroom bisque that I will never forget!
Food was delicious & all the staff were very friendly & professional!
Wonderful little cafe with a good selection of gluten free items such as gluten free buns as substitute on sandwiches. Very appreciated!
cru has always been one of my favorite places. food is so great and atmosphere is great too. it’s never disappointed. if you haven’t made it there yet it’s really a place you need to try. i’m local and have tried a looooot of the new places around here and nothing beats cru
This is our third time stopping at Cru Cafe for lunch during a day stop on a cruise in Charleston. What a great place. Each time we have sat at the counter (chef's table). It adds to the experience. Watching the chef makes you really appreciate what they do. This time we had soup, salad, chili and cheesecake. A great meal. We look forward to returning to Cru Cafe during a future stop in Charleston and highly recommend it to others.
We thought the restaurant was excellent from the staff and food If we lived closer we would eat there all the time
This was our second visit to Charleston, and our second visit to Cru. The fried green tomatoes with pork belly croutons were amazing and we really liked the plum demi on the roasted duck.
We love Cru ! We eat here every time we are in Charleston. Very friendly staff, and the food is excellent !!
Our dinner was fabulous, and our server made sure that we felt like we were her only customers! I wanted to put a small plate and an appetizer together to make a meal, and she graciously made it happen and made it extra special!
This is one of my favorite Charleston restaurants. The food is consistently tasty and the service is attentive and prompt. My only complaint is that it can be hard to get reservations - probably because it is a small restaurant. So make sure you give yourself plenty of time to book ahead because it is so worth the visit to this gem of a restaurant!
One of our favorite places in Charleston. My wife and I will always eat here at least one time every trip we make. We always stay at our favorite place which is the Ansonborough Inn and it is very close to Cru. Great food and wonderful service.
Food and service are superb. Atmosphere is very homey. Highly recommend. My favorite restaurant in Charleston.
The service was exceptional despite them being very busy. The salads are delicious and hard to choose from. While the soups look very good, there isn't a soup and salad combo, only a soup and sandwich choice. A great go-to lunch spot downtown.
Servers were great, highly attentive and intelligent
We had a surprise birthday and they made it very special. We also had five cleaned plates. The food is amazing!
