We were 5 people each having different meals. All great. If there is one criticism it is that the steak cooked to medium rare was a bit to rare. Not a big difference but enough to notice. I love the food and service.
Food was great, but waiter ignored us when we wanted the bill for 1 hr 20...
We had a lovely evening celebrating my boyfriend's birthday. He is a chef and very particular about eating out. He loved the meal and thought the fish was prepared superbly!
Shannon provided excellent service!
Amazing food, phenomenal wine pairings, excellent service, super attentive staff. Very knowledgeable and welcoming. Awesome experience. Highly recommended.
Great place, fantastic service, awesome decor, intimate atmosphere
I spent a 1000 dollars. I had a gift cards worth 100 dollars given to me by your restaurant the last time I spent 600 dollars there. And yet I was not allowed by the waitress to use the 100 dollar credit against the 1000 bill. Not impressed.
Always a great experience going to CRU for business lunches. It's the right everything for me and my guests.
From the moment we walked in the door, service was friendly, responsive, and yet unobtrusive. We brought wine and in a seamless motion the staff took care of how that was to be decanted and served.
The food was delightful and well presented. Certainly the peanut butter sandwich and the duck were both appropriate in size and enjoyable to the palette.
Having been to Cru for lunches only before, it proved to be an excellent evening spot, and one that is unusually (yet gladly!) quiet to allow for easier conversation.
Many thanks to the staff for a great evening!
I have been at this location when it was Lbs (Lobsters, Burgers and Salads), and was happy that the people behind Lbs kept the place and spinned off this new concept. Food was great, service was great and it was an overall great experience.
The service was extremely slow which was disappointing for business lunch. The server was quite pleasant and kept us updated that the food was still being made but it took an hour from ordering to even receive our appetizers.
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.
