I ordered the filet, which was good. It was served with what seemed like diner breakfast potatoes which were not a good combo. The wine was not great & the server really wasn’t able to make a recommendation. The atmosphere was nice, the service was attentive, the food was ok, the wine was not good.

It was the perfect birthday brunch with. Good friend. I love the mimosa specials and the service is always great. I appreciate the crew at Cru doing the right thing by following protocol and keeping people safe. For me it’s a safe place go to during the pandemic

We were pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the service was very good. We had a hand tossed pizza for an appetizer and shrimp and cheese grits, both were very delicious. We will be back!

We dined outside on a Sunday night. The area was quiet but charming. The food was excellent. They also have half price all bottles of wine, very good selection. It was a really, fun, relaxing dinner! The waitress was awesome :)

Thankful to have a reservation for 7 on game day. We ordered a variety of items at our table and everyone enjoyed their meals. Most folks were dining on the patio, so the inside was pretty quiet. The service was a bit slow, but we felt they were a little light-staffed. I would definitely visit again.

Wednesday Night Wine Nights at Cru have become a regular thing for me and I really enjoy the atmosphere as well as the value of half off wine and $6 burgers on Wednesdays!

Birthday lunch was amazing! Americana burger and sliders were incredible, and fries were so good. Georgia peach and Bellini Tini cocktails were some of the best I’ve had. Creme brûlée was perfect as well!

Very good experience - food was fresh and elegantly prepared - wine selection was nice, and the atmosphere was very relaxing - wait staff very accomodating and prompt.

We actually went back the next morning for brunch. Same great experience.

Highly recommend!

Wow, what a change from our phenomenal dining experience a month ago. No one was in the restaurant at 6pm on a Monday and yet it took 15 mins to get our cocktails for a party of 4. It took the waitress forever to take our order and got our order requests mixed up. Then my fillet and veggies had the same crazy spice on them to where I could hardly eat them. It is too bad because Cru had been my favorite restaurant in Knoxville.

Sat at a booth across from the bar. The bartender clearly had friends at the bar and were extremely loud. Bartender didn’t wear a mask and mgmt let people walk through the restaurant without masks. Inconsistent policy and no respect for people dining.

We got there a little early I guess as the place was almost empty. I'm glad we did because as we were there, the place filled up. Service was excellent all the way from the start to end and the food was wonderful. I'll definitely return.

Grate brunch. The food was wonderful as always. We have been here three times. Twice for dinner and once for brunch. Iv never had a problem here and always impressed with the food. Plus they change beer selection often so it’s nice to have new choices and my wife loves the cocktails.

Service was absolutely terrible. I have never been so disrespected at any establishment in my life. Waitress was clearly talking poorly about my table and making fun of us to the other bartender so it made the rest of the evening very awkward. Not to mention she messed up our order multiple times. Never coming back here again.

Atmosphere was unique with red tinted lighting and exposed brick walls. Waitress was warm and friendly. Only downfall- portions sizes for some of the dishes were geared more towards tapas sizes. For a hungry male, it was not enough lol.

I enjoy Cru Bistro and it's one of my favorite Knoxville restaurants, but I don't enjoy smelling like the grill after dining there. I think they need to work on the ventilation system.
