This is my second time visiting and actually stayed at the Crowne knowing I could enjoy a nice meal here. Appetizers were good, had the foie gras and scallop appetizers. Scallops were slightly undercooked and lacked the pan seared top and bottom. Flavorful however undercooked. Had the filet as I wanted a small piece of beef. For a filet, it... More

I last dined at Cru in 2013. The experience caused me to write a very favorable review. I had not returned until recently only because other venues competed for my palate and Cru just slid off my radar screen. Fast forward to 2016 and a return visit. Our party of four was seated quickly for our reservation and the side... More

Went for happy hour Cru is advertised as a "networking, business card exchange" type bar and restaurant. It may be that... we are retired.. but I did not enjoy the atmosphere or service. We sat outside .. maybe 20 people out there. Different ages, couples and work friends. Very abrupt bartender, and not as attentive as I would expect.. I... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner last night, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You have a choice of outdoor or indoor dining. The restaurant has a European feel about it and also has a great bar for drinks only. My wife had two appetisers which were goats cheese, figs, hazelnut and arugula salad, followed by beef short...

We went for happy hour since we had a big lunch and were walking in Bell tower. The $5.00 appetizers were very good. The drinks were reasonably (half) priced, but they need to disclose that it costs extra to be on the rocks or get cheese olives! They made good, but if they had told us we would have known... More

I have been going to Cru for many years---perhaps since it opened. And it seems to me, that it is up or down, closed or reopening----or whatever. I have been there 3 times recently. All 3 were excellent. I will talk about my recent lunch. My daughter and I were shopping at Bell Tower and wanted lunch. I decided we... More

Known for having a bar with people who are there to meet, have cocktails and make friends, it is a place with a history of good food with a variety of our areas top chefs over the years. We recently went there originally... More

Our second time at Cru and tonight the dining atmosphere was overcome by a large, noisy bar crowd. Food is always impressive, but a bit on the pricey side. We enjoyed Tasting of the Seas including fish filet (I believe grouper), sea scallops (which I asked to be heavily seared and they came out perfectly!) and black tiger prawns which... More

Excellent fresh and flavorful food. Great choice - this is the third time we have been back. Great to the last bite. Nice wine list. For a quiet spot - sit in the dinning area.
