    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.

    Food was so off! And we ordered many items from apps to entree! Service was ok & place needs a good cleaning ! Wine was less than desirable for a wine bar. Barley palatable !! Perhaps watered down….Will never go back. And for the money we could have eaten at Flemings for the same price !

    We love Cru. It is so consistent with our dining preferences. We tend to enjoy multiple small plates and perhaps share one entree. All combined with nice wine options. We frequent Cru - The Domain and never are disappointed.

    This restaurant used to have excellent food and service, but that was precovid. Went for Father’s Day special. Took 3 hours for a 3 course meal, food arrived somewhat tasteless and COLD. I believe they cannot find enough help and are trying to maintaining the same level of service. Not possible if you don’t have the staff.

    Delicious food. We did all appetizers and they were very tasty. Bummed halibut isn’t on the menu as that’s really why we went but everything else made up for it. We don’t drink so I can’t comment on the wine. The shrimp and lobster pot stickers are amaze!

    Menu on Open Table is outdated. Location is difficult to find. Entrance is through the patio dining area which is not common, nor obvious. No signage to assist. Host was less than welcoming. Server was great, very helpful and the highlight of the night. Wine only, no beer or cocktails. Charcuterie board isn't worth the price and didn't look anything like the photo posted by the restaurant owner on Open Table. Same for the Ahi Tuna share plate. Didn't realize until doing this review or I'd of taken photos. Sadly, will not be returning.

    Five us had wine flights and shareables. Several hours spent in a relaxed atmosphere with excellent food and wine. Nothing to complain about other than the Around the World Cheese board came with 4 slices of bread. Note 5 people.

    The venue was was very nice, clean and comfy, and the wait staff was top notch however the food was super small portions, and expensive for what you get. Some of us ordered off the share menu which honestly there was hardly enough for one person to eat let alone sharing it. Put it this way, after spending over $120 for four people, (no wine) we went out to eat after!!

    The service was great! That was about it though! The food was not good and we learned that there is no executive chef or even a manager at this location! That is a very poor decision as a corporation especially when your restaurant is in The Domain!!

    If the food even came close to the high quality service--this brunch would have been amazing! Our server, Scott was FANTASTIC! However...the food (Mother's Day Brunch) was far from amazing. It seemed the items were fairly prepared in advance--and a bit bland. Deviled egg was try and flavorless, frito misto was greasy and also lacked seasoning. Main course--the halibut was really good but my daughter's dishes (crab cake benedict and lobster risotto) was cold and bland, Scott was attentive to replace the cold plates, but the second try wasn't much better. At that point we just cut our losses and moved on. He was beyond gracious to bring us a complimentary mimosa for the trouble. Dessert was good. I don't think we will be back--and if so, likely just for the wine.

    Came for a Mother’s Day wine tasting and lite bites. Hostess gave me the table I wanted but kept reminding us we had to be out by 5pm (we got there at 3). I assured her we would be out before 430pm but she was pretty persistent on reminding us which got a little like “ok we get it/we know.” But the service was good, wine flights were good, cheese flight was good. The meatball appetizer was the most dense meatball I have ever eaten…you couldn’t cut through it with a fork and had to use the sharp cheese knife. I had one bite and it was one bite too much. Would never order again. All in all it was a decent experience.

    Decent food. We ordered two appetizers and one entrée- all to share. Plus a flight of wines just to try. Didn’t like fig and Gorgonzola, but tuna tartare was good and short ribs excellent. Desserts are missable. Think. Service was good but could have been more thoughtful. Nice ambiance. Overall good experience.

    We had dinner at the Cru yesterday. We were in the mood for a filet mignon dinner - so many of the steakhouses in the Domain are super expensive. We selected the Cru because their filet mignon came with 2 sides (so many steakhouses charge extra $ for sides) and the prices were reasonable. It was a delicious meal!! The filet was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The wine prices are similar to other restaurants ($$$), but we found a good red wine that we really liked, didn't mind about the price too much. The staff at the Cru were fantastic - very pleasant, worked very hard and made our dining experience very nice. This really is a hidden gem of the Domain because you can get very good food at a reasonable price in a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere (unlike some other very loud and busy steakhouses). My husband and I each had the filet mignon dinner (with 2 sides), shared a Caesar salad (it was quite large) and had 2 molten chocolate cakes for dessert (really, really good!), along with a bottle of wine, tax and tip - $200. At the other steakhouses, that kind of meal could cost you $300 or more. Not all of their meals are that pricey though. We want to come back to try their pizzas (saw diners enjoying that - looked yummy), as well as try a wine flight - generous samples of 3 wines. Such a wonderful and relaxing place to eat. Highly recommend for adult dining (there is no kids menu). Park in the pink parking garage - it is close to the restaurant.
