Very wonderful place and I will be recommending it For those who appreciate higher end restaurants. Small issue with one dinner was handled appropriately and quickly. Seemed loud in some rooms but ours was quite. Will likely return.

Michael is an exceptional attentive professional server. I held a business dinner tonight with a colleague who came in from out of town he knew when to approach when not to do new one to engage and so forth. He is absolutely a superstar everything was outstanding.

Delicious food and impeccable service. Prices are high but quality of food and service justify it. We sat outdoors and it was absolutely lovely. Would only recommend they build a roof because when it started raining, we had no place to go given dining room was full and there is a capacity restriction due to COVID

Delicious food and nice variety, especially during a pandemic. Felt safe and friendly. Sat outside on a beautiful fall evening. Great service. A tad pricey if you order wine but otherwise not too bad. I would go back again and would recommend for a nice quiet dinner, date night or celebration. Convenient location, good ambiance.

I like the convenience and ambience at Cru, especially during these times. The tables are well spread apart and I felt safe and comfortable on the patio. The food is always good, never great. I wish it were just a little better, especially at these prices.

I love Cru. We sat outside on the patio, which I love. The only complaint I have is that, unfortunately, we could smell the trash from where we were sitting as we were seated near the back of the patio and their dumpsters were across the parking lot from us. Perhaps it was just the direction of the breeze that night, but still a bit unpleasant. For the price and the upscale atmosphere, this shouldn't happen. It will not prevent me from going back there, just a little disappointing.

Great ambeotic restaurant. Food and drinks at the level expected in this price range. Service was not at the level I’d expect in even a moderate price restaurant. Definitely the weak link.

First, the food and service (Daniel was our waiter) were outstanding, we ordered the foie gras - rich and outstanding and the lamb dual unbelievable dish. The dual or duel of the lamb refers to one the left or in one corner the lean lamb meat which was very tender versus on the right or the other corner of the round plate was this imaginative dish of lamb and meat - I highly recommend it -so it is a little expensive but it is truly an east-side savory special place.

We enjoyed another special evening at this refined, intimate and elegant restaurant. The welcome was pleasant and genuine, the seating while at our direction was perfect and the suggestions on wine pairing and delivery of our plates done in a way that added to the ambience of the evening and dining experience.

We even received an owner-led tour of the restaurant and their prized wine room. It was a delight to celebrate our 28th Anniversary at your establishment. Thank you for an epicurean delight from beginning to end.

Visited 9/18. Generally this is one of the better restaurants in the area, but this night it was a bit off, particularly the service. Requested a 375ml bottle of champage
be waiting for us thru the Opentable site (it was a special occasion) , but they initially brought the wrong size. Ordered the fois gras, which was cooked properly, but barely warm, as it was probably sitting waiting to be delivered to the table too long (nice prep though). When I asked to see the sommelier to order some wine, I was told by our server that he was too busy (don't really know if it was a server or sommelier issue). When I then told the server that I would normally order one of two (fairly pricey) wines, was there something else in the price range I should consider, he finally found the sommelier. When we told the server that we'd be fine pouring our own wine, he informed us that he was "classically trained," though by his lack of attentiveness throughout the meal, you could hardly tell he was trained at all. Both the salad and fish prep was flawless as ever. As we were about to order or final course, the server brought out a complementary dessert (which was nice given the occasion), but we were not ready for it. We did order a cheese course, which included a nice selection and prep, though the portions were quite small (and we're not "big food" people). Overall a somewhat disappointing night. We will go back, we'll just ask for a different server.

Food was mediocre. My friend ordered filet with pink center. While tender, it was overcooked and not at all pink. I ordered chicken highly recommended as favorite dish of our server and I thought it looked and tasted processed. Service was superb, ambiance perfect. Safe during times of Covid.

Our first time here celebrating our anniversary. The staff was outstanding from the valet to our server and everyone in between. After our outstanding meal we asked for a tour of the restaurant which was granted and he explained about the construction and even the small garden they had outside. We look forward to coming back
Thank you for a great experience everyone that stopped by our table.

The food was fine but for the price you would think the food and service would be spectacular. The service was fair, they gave us a hard time at 5 pm to move our patio table as we did not want to be directly by someone else. The patio was EMPTY- 3 tables were seated and the hostess was rude an unaccommodating.
The server was fine, he did the job but there was nothing outstanding about him or his service. We were regretful we did not choose elsewhere to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and our first time eating out in over 6 months.

It was great. Please bring the chocolate stone back on the dessert menu. Glad they make it for us but we always have to remember ahead to ask specifically for it. Just make it a standard.
