Great place for good food and ambiance. Friendly staff
First, the service was excellent. Very attentive but not rushed. The Cru boasts a fusion/ eclectic menu and it was in good way but they also have standard fare as well. The quality of the food was good. Everyone in our party was pleased. Very contemporary atmosphere.
The check came and this is where the dining experience turned a little. The wine list is very good with many varieties available but the pricing and format was “confusing”. I will fully admit that it was my own fault. Because of the spectrum of food ordered we went with wine by the glass. One of the pages got me and stated a price listed as 77/14. Thinking it would be $14/glass I ordered a glass. As it turned out a glass was actually $22! We were later told that it was $77 / bottle and 14 was the number of bottles in stock (do they the menu page every night after a bottle is purchased, like I said confusing).
Even with the little glitch I would recommend Cru. I just post my whining so that you scrutinize the listings carefully.
Slow service. The restaurant wasn’t half full and it took our party of six 2 hours to get through dinner. Food was great and unique. Ribeye was amazing crab cake roll was off the hook. Would have liked not having to be there 2 hours for 3 course meal.
The food, especially the seafood medley, was out of sight. We will be coming back.
Beautiful restaurant. This was my first visit and I am beyond satisfied. The food was great...I ordered the Salmon and it was cooked just the way I like it. CRU has earned a lifetime customer.
This is one of the best restaurants in the area. When we lived in Fort Myers..we dined there often. Now, we live in Naples & we will still drive there on occasion!! Excellent on all levels from service to food to atmosphere!!
I love this restaurant!! Service and food is excellent. The decor is very sophiscated. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Superb, but quite a few smokers in the front patio.
Waitress was terrible. No smile from hello on...took order and saw her once after
Food was delish !! Our waitress was wonderful~ pleasant, smiling & very attentive! Nice relaxed atmosphere!
Great service! Solid date night meal with good drinks and menu options.
Another great dinner at Cru! Cocktails were prepared as ordered, and the wines selections were spot on for the entrees. The chef has created a new version of bleu cheese dressing which was served over bibb lettuce and was delicious. The steak frites was prepared exactly as ordered and the fried lobster tail, certainly a "different" preparation, was outstanding. I heartily recommend this dish! The server was engaging and helped make the evening more enjoyable.
Great meal , excellent food and service.
We went for Valentine's Day and were rewarded with a great meal and superb service by Rick , who went out of his way to provide good service . We have always like CRU but this was over the top.
Valentines Day meal. Great service and very good food.
We had a reservation and when we checked in we asked to sit outside. It took the server about 10 minutes before he came with water or even acknowledged us. Once we had contact with him he was attentive. We sat outside in the plaza, it would be nice to have a candle on the table, and to have the onside blocked off so you don't have pedestrians walking through your dinner. The food was very good and we had a wonderful bottle of wine.
We ate at CRU on a Friday night before a show in Fort Myers. It is located in the BellTower Shops, down towards Bed, Bath and Beyond, (which would've been good to know before hand for parking!) Our server, Sean, was outstanding. The Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Szechuan peanut butter and candied pecans were delicious and the Chicken Soup with Bone Broth and Roasted Chicken so richly flavorful... My husband and stepdaughter had the salmon and I had the Grilled Artisan Romaine Caesar with chunks of Bacon, Pistou and Asiago...delicious. We'll definitely go back again. The only downside to this lovely restaurant: we had an early dinner and ate on their patio, towards the inside of the BellTower mall. There were some folks strolling, which was nice, but also several apparently unattended children racing around, one older brother running and pushing a younger one in a BB&B shopping cart, and another couple having a fight as they walked down the mall. You get what you get when you table is in the public domain...and though it was a lovely, warm night I think next time we'll dine inside. The food and the service make this restaurant well worth it.
It was one of the worst experience at a restaurant we’ve ever had. From beginning with the girl at the front which refuse to give us a decent table and stated we needed reservations which we had so it made no sense. Second the food was just absolutely horribly tasting. The salad was apparently washed so much of the extremely soggy. We will not be returning
Excellent meal; food and preparation was superb. Waiter James was one of the best we've had.
Celebrating 2 birthdays & our last dinner @ CRU
Interesting chioce of small and large dishes and wines. Very good about accommodating a gluten free diet.
This was our first time at Cru Restaurant. I had walked past your place a few times while out shopping, and noticed quite a few people there during HAPPY HOUR seeming to enjoy themselves. Looked like a happy crowd, so I knew I'd have try you out sometime. The other night was perfect. My manager was here for a meeting with my husband and I, and we decided to go out for dinner. All three of us like good food, good wine and pleasant atmosphere. We got all three and more at Cru. thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
Funky menu. Couldn’t find something to order so all three ordered two appetizers each which were all divine.
Very unassuming at 1st glance. We had a party of 8. Eclectic palettes. Everyone had a very good experience. Travis did a great job. Drinks and food all very well done. Small menu but executed well. Worth the visit. Would visit again.
We had a lovely dinner at Cru. Have been there before but Saturday night was particularly good. Rick took good care of us. Will definitely come back.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Lovely dinner for 4. I love that Cru is usually quiet, but this time there was a rowdy bunch at the bar having fun. Our server was helpful without being intrusive. The salads were crispy. From seafood to steaks, everything was perfectly prepared. We’ll be back.
Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. He remembered the cocktails our friends had the week before when he was their server. The food was served hot, nice presentation and delicious.
We find Cru to be one of the gems of Fort Myers! The food is unique among local offerings and delicious. We went before the Tree Lighting with an 8 month old baby. I had asked for a high chair in the comments section of Open Table and it was all set up when we arrived! That was impressive, usually you have to stand there and wait for someone to bring it over. Cru has delivered over the years and continues to do so.
Awesome food, ambience, service, and experience! We will definitely be back soon!
Good salads! Very nice for a Saturday afternoon lunch!
Amazing food, and great service! Highly recommend!
Food great! Service exceptional!
Everything was wobderful
Truly, there aren’t a lot of finer dining options in the Ft Myers area. My husband and I chose Cru to try something new. Travis, our server, was the highlight of the experience. He was professional, not overly involved and knowledgable. All that being said, the decor is reminiscent of something Disney’s would have done at the opening of Future World. Very dated, black/white/silver, some water (?) damage visible in the main dining room. Food was underwhelming. My husband started with a chicken liver pate, “Meh...” was his comment. His entree was a duck breast, about which he again was not enthused. I ordered the cauliflower Mac-n-cheese and brussel sprouts. The former was good; the latter lacked discernible flavor. As an aside, the bar scene was beyond vibrant. Might be worth considering if that’s your gig.
Cru is always great for happy hour with friends. Must try when in Ft Myers
Appetizer - Spicy Crab Roll.
Entree - Ocean Catch
Delicious and beautifully plated. I've been here before and keep coming back because it is so good. 5 stars all around!
This restaurant was recommended to us by my niece who lives in Fort Myers. It was my husband's birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. Our waiter was very attentive but not bothersome. The wine list was very appealing and the food was delicious. Highly recommend for just about any occasion.
Disappointing. Very echo-ey. Condensation from AC vent was dripping on me. Had to move entire table over. Finished entire glass of wine before cheese tray appetizer was served. FOOD VERY DISAPPOINTING.. How could this restaurant be ranked Top 10 best. Waiter vas very polite, had that going but really nothing else. Will not Be back.
