The wine was excellent. Food was okay, but over priced. Our server was okay, but not very interested in our table in comparison to a couple of his other tables. Overall, it was just okay.

I had not been to Cru in about a year. Unfortunately it has declined from what appears to be new management. The portions are now extremely small (four shrimp for $32). Our total bill for two was a bit over a $100 and we left hungry. The previous manager would always go to every table and ask about the food. The new manager did not. Our server was hard to find, so we never really even had an opportunity to express our concerns. Additionally, my shrimp were cold. We ordered the charcuterie board, and it barely fed two people. We had ordered these same dishes previously and the portions were of much better sizes. We left extremely disappointed, as Cru used to be one of our favorite locations for an easy date night.

We love eating at Cru. Our service this time is what made this time less enjoyable. Waiter was very inattentive, didn’t talk about any wine options or available offers. We had to pick a wine that we had before hoping that it was still offered. We will be back but, not as enjoyable with poor service

When going to this venue I’ve experienced a lovely ambiance and perfect atmosphere for quiet meaningful meals. On a Tuesday evening at 5:45 the inside seating was consumed by a large and overwhelmingly loud group. I was unable to hear my waitress or my dinner guest without leaning in and asking to repeat. For this environment we should have gone to a bar at 9-12 where loud people who want to shout across the room while drinking are a part of the experience. Management did absolutely nothing-did not speak with us or offer another table.They also did nothing about the rude overbearing loud group.
We spent almost $100 to have an evening controlled by a rowdy disrespectful group unaddressed by manager-my last time going to Cru-very sad

Food is great. Wine is great. Beware of poor service. Won’t be back - I gave them a shot twice and was hoping service would be better. If you look well off your service will be wonderful, but apparently if you don’t (even when spending a good chunk of $$) the server will only service you when convenient for them. It just stinks because the food is so good. Won’t be back unless I come with my fancy friends I guess (but highly doubtful).

We dined here for our first time for brunch on 4th of July. Everything was fine, but I would have preferred more breakfast type options. Will try again for dinner, but likely not brunch.

Food was delicious and wine was great. Felt that our waiter was less than enthusiastic servicing us. We may not look like the riches people, but don’t let that fool you on how much we will spend. Will dine here again as it would be great for a girls night.

Such a nice little spot right next to the Hotel. If you are staying at The Origin at The Fritz, 100% would recommend that you take a walk to this place. The day we went it rained so we were not able to sit outside but the inside seating was very nice. Was a little awkward figuring out where to go to be seated since there wasn't a typical host stand but staff was very nice and aware of when guests walked in. Wait staff was very nice and offered great recommendations. The pear and gorgonzola pizza was ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL. The wine and bourbon selection was also really great. A wine flight is definitely the way to go too. Cannot wait until my next visit.

Always great! but... Good wine pairings, could use a few more dishes on the menu. The pizza's are great, the 'chicken Alfredo' is more of a lemon chicken dish. Need a couple of tapas or small sandwich dishes, because if you go for the charcuterie or cheese boards, you don't really need a large entree.

Cru is a great place whether it’s for some wine tasting and appetizers or for a full meal. I really enjoyed sitting outside on the patio. There was no unwanted traffic noise and there is plenty seating. It has a great relaxed feel with friendly and knowledgeable staff ready and willing to make your dining experience enjoyable and delicious.

Calamari needed seasoning, pizza wasn’t that hot and needed more flavor. One Moscow mule was $17, wasn’t warned about the price, so probably won’t return. Server Kendra was great

Walker has been our server on both our visits, last October and yesterday. He checks in often and has learned a lot about the wines. The cheese plate was good. We moved outside to get away from a noisy patron, outside table was clean and private. Wine choices were good and we enjoyed our time having 2 different wines.

Fantastic! The wine flights are excellent and provide a wonderful variety. We had the crab/mushrooms appetizer and the potstickers. Both were excellent. My wife had the truffle pizza. The crust was perfect and the ingredients well paired and cooked. I had thebchicken piccata. Lightly breaded and moist with the citrus in the sauce excellent and not overpowering. If you like creme brûlée, theirs is a must. It literally is one of the top two I’ve ever had. As good as the food was the service. This is a gem in the middle of the Summit.

Sadly the wine at Cru is overpriced. The service o
Is average and same with the food. I want to love this place as I love sitting outside there but every time I go I am disappointed. I wish they would have better wine selections and better pricing for that! It’s the most expensive wine in the city for poor selections!
