This is now my favorite restaurant in Nantucket. Great food, draft beer and great service.

Lovely location and ambience, very comfortable dining and romantic lighting. Seafood dishes were excellent! Steak was disappointing -- over seasoned and overcooked. Wait staff was attentive and accommodating.

Food was excellent and sitting outside on the dock for a drink was really nice, but way too noisy inside if sitting by the bar.

We brought our three boys here and from the beautiful lobster cocktail to the divine raspberry sorbet my 7 yr old couldn't stop talking about for days, the experience was our favorite of our week stay in Nantucket. Highly recommend!

Some things were great and some wet not. That goes for appetizers as well as entrees. The lobster main course was overcooked but the swordfish as perfect. Really inconsistent delivery.

We've been here 3 times and it just keeps getting better --the food is always exceptional and the service is always more than we expect! At the top of our list!

If you like a deafening roar rather than good conversation this is the place for you. A restaurant with high end prices that places you so close to the bar that you cannot converse with your guests is unacceptable. Offer a bar menu at the tables In the back room and it might be ok. Avoid these tables and specify a table at the front.

My husband and I spent a few days in Nantucket mid-week and wanted to try all of the new places - Cru being one of them. Our Innkeeper told us that she had tried it the night before and that the bartenders and wait staff were not friendly - not cool, considering she could send them oodles of customers. We went anyway, and found it to be hip and fun - we were seated in the back bar and it was kind of loud and crowded. The wait staff kept bumping into my husband as they walked by, because the bar was so crowded. We decided to just roll with it and consider it part of the experience.

The food was good, not great. I think it would be better suited for drinks and apps.
