We have been 4 to 5 times and every visit was outstanding, from the entrees to the wine to the service. We will definitely keep coming back. Cru is one of our favorite restaurants in Austin.

Great service! The waiter was attentive and friendly. We had issues with our table wobbling and they couldn't seem to fix it. Wine and champagne were great and the waiter made great effort in finding a good fit! There is room for improvement on the calamari, mostly just pieces of batter. The cheese plate was great and we had an overall good experience.

This was our first time a Cru and it was a very good experience. I was surprised because I thought I knew most of the good spots in Austin! Our waiter took very good care of us and we enjoyed everything Thanks CRU!

Service was lovely but the brunch food wasn’t great. Everything had lots of pepper and overall very mediocre. Beautiful little restaurant, perhaps better for an evening glass of wine than for a Sunday brunch.

The food selection is a bit scarce, but was good.. wine selection was of course wonderful. It took 18 mins for someone to come acknowledge that we were at our table, we also weren’t sat by someone- they just pointed to a table... and our server was terrible. It was a so so experience

Great location, food and service. Pizza was really good. Tomato soup and grill cheese is a must. Good wine options.

Food was good. Disappointed that the website was out of date so the preset menu option was not available.

Other than not being able to have an initial cocktail, this place was a great find in advance of an ACL concert. Loved that they split plates for us (had a late lunch). Excellent service and respectable wine list.

Wine flights were amazing. Small plate style service so you can order a lot to try many things.
