Another visit and again, Cru delivers! This place always delivers and they managed to get better. My wife was looking forward to going back here. Cru was always her favorite restaurant before COVID and she was really hoping they have not changed. Well, they have - for the better. They took it up another notch. Patio has been expanded, wine cellar tripled in size and service has only gotten better. Everything we tried was really good (there were 4 of us and all of us had different things and we all really liked it - octopus, salmon, green salad, foie gras, burger). Restaurant knew we were there for my wife's birthday so they gave here a complimentary dessert with a birthday candle - great touch (but I will say that the restaurant need to pick up their dessert game just a bit). Can't wait to see once they build the wine tasting room as well as their pop up kitchen.

The most amazing food I have had in a long time. The wine selection is limitless. Bill was very large, but it was a special occasion and worth the price.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Cru. The setting is lovely. Our server, Julie, was great. Janine (sp.?), the sommelier, was great as well - she even gave us a tour of the wine cellar. The food and wine were delicious as well.

We’ll be back!

I love Cru but the last several times service was rushed.

There was pressure to order food while we relaxed over our expensive cocktails.

Plates were whisked away before we were finished.

The bill was slapped down while we were still eating and drinking. THE WORST…….and not the French way at all. “ No rush heres your bill”…………
We expect more at a restaurant of this caliber.

Beautiful restaurant - they have spared no expense. Service is great. However, ordered a bottle of white wine, which was luke warm. Took ten minutes to chill before we could drink it. Not sure how this could happen in a restaurant known for their wine. Food is also very expensive.

Made the reservation several weeks before hand. We had a perfect night to eat outside. From the time we arrived the valet the host the hostess the wait staff papered us. We shares the Spanish Octopus appetizer ,awesome! My date had the duck and I had the lamb, Both dishes were excellent finished it off with cappuccinos and the Stone chocolate desert, what a wonderful experience. looking forward to the next visit.

We loved the atmosphere and service. Both were outstanding and, by themselves, may have justified the prices. The food (with the exception of dessert, which was outstanding) left a little something to be desired. The taste of a few items on the plates bordered on bland (probably just needed salt but none was on the table) and the plating could have been better conceptualized. All that being said, however, we will definitely go back - the kitchen may have just had a slightly "off" night.

It was the best dining experience we have had in a long time. The food was excellent. I felt like we were getting to eat those impossibly delicious looking meals that we see on cooking shows. Nothing disappointed. I was even able to eat gluten free and felt great.

This time around I was not impressed nor satisfied.
The tables are spaced far enough but for some reason all parties were seated in the same area of the restaurant.
Food….. was much better before, appetizers were ok but entries were lacking in taste. Presentation ok.
Sommelier though was great, good recommendation and selection.

Kinda felt like we were in a showing of The Emperor's New Clothes...experience was just a little underwhelming and we kept wondering, when are we gonna kick into gear here?
The portions are small, can understand that, assuming that quality makes up for it. The appetizers were solid in this way - escargot, salmon croquettes and goat cheese panna cotta. Well done. Dinner entrees? Meh, average in size and preparation; sea bass wasn't an impressive cut of fish (brown meat along the entire top of the piece and teetered between under and uncooked) scallop entre yielded 3 average size scallops, steak and halibut both fell into the average category as well. Also a surprisingly limited array of choices on the dinner menu and no specials. The wine list IS sublime and we had an amazing bottle of white Rhone, approved by our skilled and outstanding waiter, A + . NOT a hater, we've had nice meals here before, pre-pandemic. Oddly, a gentleman named Bill, came to our table after our meals, asked how we were doing - we weren't certainly who he was or what his function is, kinda joked about it - one of our group said, "yeah, we asked for our Bill, but didn't think this is what would happen"....nothing.

Our high water mark for French food in NE Ohio = Chez Francois and there is no confusing Cru with Chez. Closest east side feel is The Barn @ Walden and again, apologies, but Cru has nothing on those folks. Wish them well, may try another time on down the road.

Cru service has come a long way since it was first opened. Food has always been good, but professionalism was a bit lacking in the early days. Each time I go, I notice service improving more and more. This time, the staff was A+ starting with the valet service, to the check-in, to the table service, and departure. Congratulations to all involved.
The food has always been excellent, although on the pricier side. But I'm happy to pay for an excellent overall experience, which Cru now provides.

Very professional of what you would expect from a fine restaurant like this. Everyone, even the Manager, was attentive to making our dining experience a good one. Even asked for the swap out of an item on entree with one for another item on listed on another item with no issue. Good relaxing enjoyable dinner indoors to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
