I went here with a friend for a catch up over a glass of wine. It's a perfect atmosphere and setting for talking and relaxing with a drink. We had one of their 'flights' to start with, which is a taster of 3 small glasses of wine, which was a nice way to decide what we wanted to drink afterwards.... More

Guess we were there on a night when they had a movie special going...was never offered the special and was treated like a stranger for not being in on the special...Food was decent but very pricey. Service was average at best. Not impressed given the competition in this area.

We were in Allen for two nights, on the first we were very disappointed by an Italian restaurant we selected from Trip Advisor. The second night was Cru A and it was wonderful. Relaxed, high quality food designed, created and delivered by people who want you to enjoy their undoubted skills. No feeling of a conveyor-belt here. We spent more... More

Nice location in Allen's Watters Crossing. You can get wine by the glass, by a flight of three glasses, or a bottle. On our recent visit, we had the Cabernet flight and the Malbec flight. Tasting notes accompany the wines. It's a good, but somewhat pricey, way to try different wines. They also have a nice selection of food. Try... More

This has been a go-to place for sever post dinner chill times with friends. The wine selection is fantastic and best of all, you can actually carry on a quiet conversation with the people you're there with which is clearly not the case with the neighboring restaurants. The appetizers and snacks are very good quality and once you're here, you... More

This is a cozy spot, with good food, attentive service, and of course, great wine. I love the flight option so you can try different wines. Love the decor. A bit tight inside but this adds to the cozy factor.

This was our second time to eat at Cru and once again it was delicious! I do not even drink wine so I go for the food and it does not disappoint. They have appetizers, cheeses, salads and main entrees. They even made something for me that was not on the menu. Highly recommend this place!

We were headed to the Cheesecake Factory, when we spotted Cru. My husband and I each had a flight and the fondue. Good service (young wait staff) and a GREAT wine list. We sat outside and listened to the free concert on the green. The inside was decorated very modern - quite impressive. A really nice experience overall. The only... More

We already knew the Dallas Crú- A Wine Bar location from having lived in the Uptown area, but now that we moved to McKinney we try to find restaurants closer to home. We were so happy to have discovered this place and were even happier with the location in the Watters Creek shopping center. This weekend was the second time... More
