There was a gentlemen who helped us with our coats and servers were very attentive.
Not too noisy, great for business lunch.
Very nice fine dining place. I requested to put a birthday card there for my friends birthday. They made a really lovely one. All their servers are super nice and friendly. Love the ambience there, and of course the food. Tasting menu is totally worth to try! LOVE IT!
Appetizers were tasty and a good size for sharing. The tuna was quite yummy. Tempura shrimp with Kimchi dip perfectly cooked.
Mains were well presented and tasty. Staff were friendly and the service was attentive without being intrusive.
Way too expensive for what you get, super small portions.
I would appreciate more unique treatment due to our special occasion
Know how to communicate with deaf people
Drink never empty. They always fill it. you dont need to ask for refill.
The meal i choose from cru was new year eve menu. Only i dont love their beef. The food is pretty expensive . The taste is not wow. Its okay. The rest beside beef is good.
Will go there again.
The table we were given was unfortunately very poorly lit. It was the only such table in the place. We asked to be reseated, but all tables were deemed reserved - even though some were still empty when we left.
Pasta Main dish very boring and unpleasant - violent green from excess spinach
So-called chef's menu wasn't really special - you would just pick items from regular menu which wasn't extensive or exciting enough.
Yes, good food, convenient location and always able to get a table.
Service was helpful and friendly. There are vegetarian options available. Decor is modern and spacious but the booth seat lacked support. Food was good. Not at all busy for a Saturday night.
A good business spot, but bar seating is often the only available space; the staff were generally attentive; and provided good recommendations based on superb knowledge.
Favorite lunch spot in the city!
Found the noise level difficult to have a conversation without talking. Bey loudly.
Beautiful venue with good food, but the noise level for a business lunch, was a bit much.
Excellent restaurant to be when you're looking for fancy and not a lot of noise. Staff was wonderful, food was just right.
The staff was lovely, the food delicious and well priced. We truly enjoyed our evening. Thank you
Excellent attentive service. Food is fresh and flavourful.
Staff was very pleasant and knowledgable.
Crusted Bransino was superb..
2 course Prix Fixe for lunch is a nice option, well done!
We had the 2 courses special and portion was just right. Food very tasty and price reasonable.
very small quantities of moderately high-priced food. Ordered scallops - got 3 pieces...
Desserts were excellent! Great lunch spot for business meals.
This is my first time back since the refurbishment and I really enjoyed myself. The food was excellent and the atmosphere perfect for catching up with an old friend.
Great experience, overall. The food was outstanding, esp the pear tarte tatin. My date was blown away!
Atmosphere is beautiful, was very slow on a weekend, but we were there early before a Leafs game...service excellent. The food was a little hit and miss...Tuna with XO appetizer was outstanding, Black Cod also very good, sides interesting and good. Very disappointed in the quality and taste of the Ribeye - was cooked medium yet it was somehow dry? Not sure what was up with that steak. I'd stick to Seafood here
The waiter suggested we opted for the 5 course chefs menu - it did not disappoint! Fantastic food and great meal in very nice settings.
Had a fantastic experience. Service was great, servers were informed and helped make the dining experience pleasant. Highly suggest the Bartender's choice for a drink, they make some fun off-the-menu cocktails. The branzino is out of this world.
The food was a tad disappointing. THE GOOD: The Brussels sprouts were amazing, as was the whipped brown butter for the sourdough bread and the crispy potato. THE DISAPPOINTING: The rabbit risotto special was lacking in flavour and had barely any meat but a lot of fat. The cauliflower cheese also lacked flavour.
CRU environment was very fresh and Clean friendly service, Great food. We will definitely go back
While the atmosphere and service were excellent, the food was not up to expectations for a restaurant of this nature.
Food was fantastic! Service was great also. Restaurant is beautiful, great menu.
Menu could use some diversity but if you like steak it's nice
The food was good, but it was relatively pricey so par for the course, and not particularly spectacular. The cavatelli (the pasta) was oddly dense and hard to chew but the sauce was good. The shrimp tempura was also good.
Excellent food and service!
We were told to leave the table for next reservation in 2 hours. We wish this requirement was informed before we dine in or at least remind the customer when they make the reservation. The gentleman original words -“We need the table at 7:15pm. I think two hour is enough”. We wish he could at least show a little bit genuine customer service instead of patronizing us. Totally ruin the dining mood. But the servers were friendly and food was nice.
We visited from NYC and the Tuna Tartare was awesome as was the Steak and their Fish Dish. If I am in Toronto again, I will be back.
We had high hopes for dinner at CRU and were sorely disappointed. It started with the cocktails. They took forever to get to us (there didn't seem to be the bartender) and the pours were minute. My husband and I drink vodka on the rocks and the vodka was brought to me in a separate rocks glass and the ice was in a second rocks glass. The vodka was maybe one finger high. It was pitiful.
The first courses were very good--shrimp tempura, and three Caesar salads. We ordered our entrees and my husband ordered the waygu beef at $30. per ounce. He ordered three ounces. When it came, it looked ridiculous on a little appetizer plate and when he tasted it (we know it should be fatty for flavor) it was pure fat. I tasted it and knew there was no way I would eat that. He sent it back. I ordered the duck. It tasted ok--very plain, but the accompanying black rice was so overly sweet I couldn't eat it.
All this and I haven't even started on the service. The hostess was lovely and sat us at a great table right away. There were only three other tables occupied. The first person who came to the table was very friendly, filled our water glasses and left. Then our waiter came by, told us specials and asked about drinks. He never smiled and throughout the entire evening acted as if we were ruining his night. Later during the meal my friend asked what glass of wine he thought would go with her entree and ran away from the table so fast I couldn't ask him what wine he would suggest to pair with the duck. He was awful . I would suggest that CRU management take a good look at its operation and decide if it wants to be in the restaurant business.
Chicken sandwich was a fatty flavourless mess
Great place for lunch if you want private and peaceful business lunch.
Fantastic food and service
Too loud and not good food
Excellent food and service definitely want to go back
