Delicious food. Excellent service. Wine flights are a great value. While we couldn’t sit outside on this occasion, I highly recommend Cru when the weather is nice.

I was disappointed in Cru on my recent visit. My husband and I ordered at $36 bottle of wine. The server brought wine to our table telling us the one we requested was not available, that she just sold the last bottle of it and offered us another bottle which she said had a “comparable price”. When we got the check we saw that the bottle she brought us was $47.00. We had had a bad day and paid the bill without incident. But I feel like we got ripped off on the wine. We come to Lexington to visit friends often but I won’t go back to CRU. I think it was dishonest of them and I don’t believe they didn’t have the wine we requested. They may use that line three times a night to improve sales and no one would know.

Cru allowed us to make a 8:15 reservation for a Saturday night. We ordered a glass of wine and then an appetizer. Before the appetizer even arrived we were told we had to go ahead and place both our food and drink orders by 8:45 because the kitchen and bar closed at 9! Why even take an 8 pm or later reservation? I know there are Covid precautions in place but closing the kitchen at 9pm on a Saturday night is unacceptable. We paid for our appetizer and wine and then went across the shopping center to J Alexander’s where they were more than glad to have our business and we never felt rushed. Cru’s horrible customer service will make us think twice before going back.

Our waitress was wonderful! The noise wasn’t too bad as there were only a few of us inside. One woman was playing a video on her phone with very high volume which was frustrating, but nevertheless, it was a lovely evening. We will be back!

Cru is perf when you want a nice wine night out. But the charcuterie boards are the smallest portions I’ve ever seen, especially for $20.

My mom and I went to Cru for lunch. We sat outside in the shade. We had the fig and Gorgonzola bruschetta and split the crispy chicken sandwich, as well as a Rosé flight and a Pinot Grigio flight. Everything was outstanding!! I love Cru 😁

Had to send fish back because it was cold. Also, our bottle of wine was warm and they had to try to get it chilled. Quickly fix and was great. First time we ever had a bad meal at Cru. We will be back again. Love the food and wine

Everything was good. Our service was good and so was our food. The wine flight I had was worth the value, just one of the wines was awful. We had a good experience, nothing amazing but nothing bad either. It was good for a small table of 4 that wasn’t looking for huge meals.

First off, I don't like wine. You might ask, why are you going to a wine bar? Because my SO loves wine. I was hopeful they might have mixed drinks. No, but I could have a straight shot of vodka. lol Ok. I can order some iced tea, no problem. Well, they have no tea either. At this point I'm looking on opentable for somewhere else to go. BUT...Kendra, the awesome waitress spoke to the Rich, the chef. Out he comes with a box of tea for me to select from to brew my own for iced tea. AWESOME. but wait, there's more....Rich goes so far as to dig through the bar and finds three flavored vodkas they have for some reason nobody knows. He whipped up a summery, refreshing, lemon wonder of a vodka drink. I named it Puttin' on the Rich, after Kendra voted that the best name I came up with. This should be on the menu. They both took what could have been a disappointment and turned it into one of the nicest dining experiences I've had in quite awhile. The food was delicious!! Truffle potato gratin? Yes please! My SO loved his wine! The interior decor was lovely. I can't say enough good things. I will be going back. Hopefully, Puttin on the Rich is on the menu, but if not, I'll still have some great food! Thank you both for making it a great night. Denise

A first experience with “dining in“ after months of the virus shutdown was approached with some uncertainty, but it went off without any problem. Three of us got together for Sunday brunch and decided to eat inside as it was quite hot outside. We had to pass the standard temperature check before we were seated at a table that was well spaced out inside the restaurant. Only two other tables were occupied inside, although there were several occupied tables outside. Our server wore a face mask and gloves and was very mindful of social distancing. It was nice to have a real cloth napkins, silverware and china plates after months of Styrofoam takeout containers. We had the salmon plate, which was very nicely put together; the crab Benedict and the black truffle omelette. The omelette would have benefited from more cheese and more spinach but had crispy potatoes and a fresh taste. My friends found their entrées to be quite good. I don’t know how it will be when more stores in the Summit reopen and CRU gets busier, but the dining experience was very pleasant and I never felt anxious or uncomfortable.
