    Food and drinks are always pretty good. Service sometimes takes a while to come around. There have been multiple times where I’ve been here for happy hour and don’t get to place my order before happy hour ends due to either short staffing or not being able to get a hold of the server. My server was great this time around but maybe something cru can work on is providing more wait staff to accommodate the needs of tables. Overall, I had a good experience today.

    Usual high quality of food. Noticed the bread selection for the cheese boards has been toned down. Our server was very accommodating with our customized request, thank you. The top end selections for each of our wine flights (Italian reds, Cabernet ) were a little disappointing, the lower end choices were much better. Ac was clearly on although it was a cold day, it was chilly inside and other diners also kept their coats on inside. We understood it cannot be controlled by the restaurant but by remote request to a business owner out of state.

    Service was bad. Food was even worse. Went for brunch on a Saturday and only had a handful of menu options with no substitutions. What was on the menu looked tasty, but on a table of 4 they picked up full plates when we were done. It was that bad. Prices were high for what you receive but the food was just inedible. Place was empty for a reason i guess. When every other restaurant was packed. Salmon board was so salty, how? It’s smoked salmon. Avocado toast was tasteless. Chicken sandwich was even worse, stale bun, completely over fried. Crab and eggs Benedict- sounded so good. One egg - over cooked. One crab cake - tasted like vinegar. Sauce even worse. Goat cheese beignets sound really good, had some chocolate sauce on it which was not even described on the menu as such. We all literally took a couple bites and just put it down. I chose the place for out of town friends so it was on me. Don’t make the same mistake.

    My wife and I dine here often. We are rarely disappointed. This time a bit so. Usually we get a salad, an appetizer and a pizza or entree to share. The Pear and Gorgonzola was exceptional as always. A delightful combination of flavors. Same for the Fig and Gorgonzola Bruschetta. Both are on our favorites list. However we do wish they had better options on salads. We had the Gem Lettuce Salad and it was disappointing to say the least. With all the other great options on the menu it just seems there could be and should be better options for a couple of tempting salads. With that said, we certainly will return. Cru is an exceptional food and wine bar. A perfect dining destination for us.

    We haven't been in years and were excited to have a date night. Our server could have cared less about our dining and was not fluent in wine. Hats off to the chef, food was great. Overall experience was rushed with subpar service.

    Taste was good but overall portions extremely small. Lobster bisque 1/2 cup with no lobster pieces. Lobster shrimp pot stickers 4 mini dumplings.. so tiny filling undetectable.. very spicy which overtook any flavor. Short ribs.. 1.. just ok Filet served to temperature ordered with 6 haricot vert and dry 2 inch square of au gratin potatoes. Lava cake mini with no lava and cream brulee pasty (overcooked probably due to mini size). Wine good. Our server was excellent. $54 over priced for what was served.

    Super disappointed in the Christmas Eve dinner. Service was greatly lacking and slow despite very few customers. Ahi Tuna tartare- mostly unripe tomatoes and cucumbers, very bland Black truffle capellini- was cold, obviously reheated, noodles overdone, very bland, no truffles to taste or visible, no Parmesan, NEEDED that salt Filet mignon- cooked to order Truffle potato gratin - clearly reheated in microwave, top was stiff and inedible, potatoes not cooked through, bland, no truffle taste Parmesan crusted halibut - NOT fresh, clearly reheated, prepared probably the day before, fish was overdone and tough, very fishy taste, such a waste of a great cut. Parmesan crust was soggy, pale and old. Such a disappointing Christmas dinner with my husband.

    We have dined at CRU often in the evening. For some time it has been one of our favorite restaurants. Always delicious and a good value. This was the first time we have gone there for brunch. To be honest we were a little disappointed with the menu choices and to be honest the prices. Wish there was more variety and breakfast style options as opposed to sandwiches. Also the service was a little slower than we normally experience in the evening. It will remain on our list of "GO TO" restaurants in the evening but probably not for weekend brunch.

    We have been regulars here for awhile. Have seen multiple management changes and staff turnover. The staff that remains is good. Chef turnover as well. The food is inconsistent everytime. I order the Cobb salad for brunch and there’s always something missing from my salad. Attention to detail is lacking. Would not invest in dinner here till we see improvements. My salad calls for 6 min egg and I get hard boiled. It calls for avocado and I get guacamole. So strange.

    Great place but not great food. The meatballs were too dense with no flavor, even with sauce. Burrata was literally two bites for $18. Out of mussels and the fritto misto we got to replace it with was underwhelming. Customer service was great. Awesome host and servers but when the food is this disappointing I will not be back.

    Everything was great. I was a little disappointed that they did not have the Mussels dish. It was on the menu, and I was so looking forward to that. But everything else was great! The wine price went up a lot. I was surprised. Maybe because that was a free pizza?... Also, it was my daughter's birthday, and the dessert was not free, which I was also surprised about. They changed a lot there.

    Three of us had a wonderful dinner on a Saturday night. We enjoyed flights of wine, shared starters that included mussels, tuna tartare, and lobster dumplings. For dinner we had chicken saltimbocca, shrimp scampi and the butter lettuce salad. For dessert we shared the molten chocolate cake and tiramisu. Every item was delicious. Service was wonderful and we were never rushed to order and vacate our table. I enjoyed the small dining room decor.

    Like everywhere they were short staffed. Although they advertised National Prosecco Day no special on Prosecco. They didn’t even have any Prosecco chilled. We ordered a bottle and had to wait while it was put on ice. Our waiter was very nice and obviously doing his best, he was trying to work the whole restaurant, bar, host stand by himself. Definitely a fail by management and tut have to feel sorry for the employees who have to deal with that.

    Wine selection was very good! The food was bland and even made me wonder if it was fresh made (shrimp/lobster potstickers) it tasted as though it was a pre made and even frozen. The calamari musta was freshly fried, the meatballs were good sauce lacked flavor. I would still probably return.

    We were given menus that had items that were half the price of the “correct” menus. Needless to say we were less than enthused to see the brunch mimosa deal that once existed, no longer does.
