Enjoyable evening. Food could have been prepared better. Hot soup was served in a cold bowl but the rest was good. Different wine list... good with specials.

If you like to try different wines, this is the place to go, You can purchase wine flights which are creatively grouped as to region or type. We found our flight of red wines to be quite good and exposed us to some new vineyards. You can also purchase wine by the bottle or glass. We didn't try the food... More

Dinner with friends. Celebrating the holidays and the evening was great! Cheese fondu was fun and very tasty. Try the mussels they are great! Then we had two pizzas .. Pear and Gorgonzola and the second was mushroom. Both were amazing and the creme brûlée was the perfect way to end the shared meal! Wait staff was nice and offered... More

Located on 2nd street district with lots of cute shops we stopped in for a glass of wine, they had lots of different flight options of wine. I tried the staff favorite fall picks. I received 3 glasses of wine with a GOOD amount in them. I highly recommend stopping in here for a glass of white and classy atmosphere!

I try to visit this restaurant whenever I travel to any of their locations in Texas. My fave? their wine flights. They have several red and white selections at decent prices. You get 3 different wines with a detailed card to educate you as to the origin, taste, etc. Their wine selection by the bottle is endless and very varied.... More

You have to go on a Thursday,half price bottles of bubbles! The waitress was so kind upon our daughter asking for an ice cream, she said they don't serve ice creams but pointed her to the ice cream parlour one block away and allowed her to bring it back to Cru.

Cru is one of my favorite wine bars in Austin (or Dallas!). Love the wide variety of wine flights and the wine list is always changing (although I hate that when I find something I really like and then it's gone!) so there is always something new to try at Cru. The food is also fantastic - the goat cheese... More

A good place to start a night out in downtown Austin. Pricey, but the quality of the wine makes up for it. If you go as a group, be sure to order different set of wine flights so that you can taste as many wines as possible. If you want to eat here, you should make a reservation.

We were able to get a last minute reservation at this very fun restaurant. My husband and I shared the goat cheese beignets drizzled with honey as well as maybe the BEST lamb chop lollipops we've ever had as appetizers. We each enjoyed different wine flights. OHHHH...we had decaf and fell so much in love with it we asked where... More
