Ask to sit in the back patio. It's a beautiful spot. The cheese fondue was amazing. We also loved the wine flights, as you could taste expensive wine for a fraction of the cost. Love this restaurant! It's a must stop when in Denver.

this is a great place to try lots of different wine samplers. they come with cards that explain each of the wines. the sidewalk seating out front is ideal for people-watching, but they also have a very quiet back patio that is nice for couples!

Really loved the service and the wine flights at this fun wine bar. The small plates were creative and tasty and Alexander Moon, our incredible bartender was not just helpful he was friendly and cute!

Popped in with a friend after seeing a show ... hard to find somewhere still serving at 10 p.m. on a Tuesday, which was their first big plus. Then we were pleasantly surprised by the menu options. We knew to expect good wine in a wine bar (choices did not disappoint). Share a few small plates - highly recommend the... More

With all the restaurant choices on Larimer, Cru could be easily overlooked, but it shouldn't be. The wine list is excellent with many tasting choices (flights) and the food is also quite good. Went for dinner and the place was hopping with a trendy crowd; still the service was excellent -- attentive without being intrusive. Varied menu from meats, seafood... More

I so loved having this wonderful alternative at the Denver airport to the ho hum sandwich/burger options airports usually offer. It was so elegant to be able to enjoy a nice glass of Rose Champagne and lightly seared ahi tuna! And enjoy a view out the window while a very nice young gentleman Adriend, waited on me. This place offers... More

This was the third time I have taken my grandson for his birthday dinner to Cru, and they did not disappoint. The service and food could not have been better. The previous times we had gone to the restaurant in Lonetree, this year with the closing we went downtown. Great time!

Cru is a great find in downtown Denver - excellent ambiance and a great selection of wine. Try the Tokaji Azsu - it's from Hungary and not often found in the US and is a great dessert wine (or simply by itself).
