My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at Cru last Friday evening. We had a magical evening! The wine was exquisite, the food delicious, the ambiance was amazing - like eating on a boat, and the service....priceless- thank you Edin! Loved it!
The outdoor eating area had the most spectacular view! I also loved their playlist.
SERVICE, FOOD, VIBE AMAZING!!! By far my favorite restaurant on the island!
This was a great place with wonderful atmosphere and great views. They had a menu that was sure to please anyone. I had the salmon which was delicious, 2 friends had the steak frites (also wonderful) and appetizers of oysters on half shell and lobster bisque ~ all delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed it, but make reservations in advance ~ it gets very busy!
Great birthday dinner in Nantucket town!
We were just talking about Cru on New Year's Eve. It has been 3 months since we were there and still rave about the oysters, the view and the outstanding service. I'm sorry I did not write this review sooner, we travel extensively and this is one of our all-time favorite meals.
Absolutely fabulous restaurant! Excellent food,service, and the view was breathtaking! Will most certainly dine here again when on Nantucket,!
We had a wonderful shellfish platter — the Premier Cru with terrific oysters and clams, huge shrimp and a lovely chunky crab salad. Sat outside to catch the Nantucket sunset. Awesome (and strong) cocktails too! Wow!
Off season not crowded! Salmon was sublime with spectacular combination of flavors! Fried green tomatoes divine!
Very cool place - a lot louder than we wanted for a late dinner. People at the bar were super loud and obnoxiously drunk. They were having a good time - just didn't provide the experience we wanted. Food was spectacular and the staff was wonderful.
Location is great, but meals and drinks are pricey, and menu is very limited.
Loved it! Very expensive but great seats, great food and great service!
As it was the last time we went, it is very noisy in the main dining room, with loud conversations., loud music and people shouting around the bar. They moved us to the quieter middle room, but the food was really amazingly bad. See our complete review here: https://bit.ly/2CHEgWu
The food is not bad, but not worth what it costs. My biggest complaint about this place is that they seem so anxious about staying in the black that they don’t prioritize customers over efficiency. (I might have a different perception if I were Tom Brady or A Kardashian.) We lwere handed our bill as we were trying to order dessert and after-dinner drinks.
The setting is great, service was good, but the menu is small and while the flounder was delicious, the $38 lobster roll was pretty terrible. The roll itself was so large that you couldn’t pick it up to eat it without it completely falling apart. Most importantly, the lobster meat was chewy and rubbery.
Very beautiful setting on the wharf in Nantucket. Tough to get a reservation. Food was very good but overpriced. Great cocktails
Delicious and inventive menu. Lots of local seafood options enjoyed in the open air on a wharf in Nantucket.
Awesome food, sublime cocktails and incredible view. Our top spot in Nantucket.
We went for my birthday dinner, it was the best meal I’ve had in years. Wait staff is awesome...food is amazing!
Loved it! Great view, service and food! Oysters were perfect!!
It was wonderful! Service was great, as well as the food!
Looking forward to going back!
Excellent food, service, and view/ambiance are offset by the fact that you can’t converse with your dining companions. Music is much too loud and speakers are poorly placed.
The atmosphere can’t be beat! The drinks are cleverly crafted and great. The menu has something for everyone and the food is cooked to perfection! Don’t leave Nantucket without trying Cru!
We sat in the back bar area which was very loud
Our party of six couldn’t carry on a conversation
Food was very good
Unfortunately our party of six was seated in the back bar area. The bar crowd was deafening and as a result our meal was a big disappointment. The servers and staff were not receptive when we asked to be moved to a quieter spot.
Perfect location at the top of the Harbor overlooking magnificent yachts. Delicious fresh fish, warm friendly service. A great start to our long w/e in Nantucket ❤️❤️
The manager was very nice. But my friends order was messed up twice. So the manager sent over a dessert which was awful. The sommelier was also very kind. Our waiter acted like it was bothering him that we were there. He did not start acting nice until it was close to the time we left. I still tipped him well. But I would not go out of my way to go back to this overpriced restaurant again next year.
Must try the lobster roll! Best I’ve had all over Nantucket!!
This is a fun place, hard to get into. Our shell fish was not served in the correct amounts, and they wound up bringing the remainder during our main course. The service is almost inattentive there's so much noise and so much going on. Lobster rolls and fries are wonderful.
Our group was wowed by our meal at Cru! Known for their raw bar, the local oysters did not disappoint and the entrees were just as fresh and impressive. We hope to visit Cru again on future trips to Nantucket.
Great ambiance, and they were very accommodating when we needed to adjust our reservation at the very last minute. The food and cocktails were very good -- it is pricey ($23 for the Mediterranean veggie bowl, which is essentially a large salad), but that's Nantucket for you! Great views of the boats in the harbor!
This was an amazing experience. We had a table right next to the harbor. The wind blowing in our hair for lunch. Lobster roll was the best we ever had.
The restaurant had everything we were looking for...a relaxing vibe, quiet atmosphere, good view, delicious food and great staff. We’ll be back!
Thank you to everyone at Cru! Everything was excellent 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 We look forward to coming back! Sea you all soon!
CRU is a must go to spot on Nantucket. The raw bar is amazing. The lobster roll, Connecticut style, is the best I’ve ever tasted. Tons of wine choices and dining while looking at super yachts is pretty neat.
We visit Nantucket every summer and eat at Cru several times. The restaurant and views are absolutely beautiful. Food is delicious and most of all the staff are always so friendly and kind.
CRU is the quintessential Nantucket dining experience. Expertly shucked Oysters, light and delicious plates all while taking full advantage of the beautiful Nantucket waterfront. A must-dine if you are visiting Nantucket in the summer. Just make sure to get that reservation early! (We booked a month in advance)
Way too expensive for what you get. It's an experience of you're looking to impress someone special. But for families it's an awful value. Food is not that spectacular. Kids meals are $20!! ..for mac n cheese!!
We were at Cru for lunch which is my favourite time to go, and we had the best table in the house in the corner next to the window by the bar. We had a superb meal, friendly service, if not always efficient, and although the noice level is consistently too high at any time of day it was just less than annoying. The oysters and clams are spanking fresh and the fish is equally delicious.
My husbands Birthday dinner. Very nice.
