Loved the wine flight and the goat cheese beignets!

My husband and I went with another couple, and we each had a different wine flight to start. In addition to my whites, I tried some of the reds that others had and I enjoyed them all. The menu is varied and I believe that anyone could find something to eat on this menu. It is divided into small... read more

After dinner at another downtown restaurant, I came on a date to try the wine of course! I ordered the chardonnay wine flight and my date order the italian red wine flight. The wine was excellent all around. I like that they give you the information card to tell you more about the wines. The food at the other tables... More

Had planned to eat outside on Larimer Square. Hail and rain had other ideas. We were sat immediately at Cru and had an amazing meal. The flight selection was great and they paired the wines well together. It was a great night with friends!

This was our first visit to Cru and we will come back. The entire experience exceeded our expectations The artichoke appetizer was lightly dusted and flash fried with a hint of salt and accompanied with fresh lemon and aioli. The lamb lollipops were grilled perfectly and presented in a nice arrangement on the plate. The beet salad was another favorite... More

Cru is a tiny wine bar, with seating inside, on the street terrace area, and in a back terrace surrounded by offices. The seating is tight but that's fine. It sits on the east side of the street, with large floor to ceiling glass windows (some of which open), so it is very hot and uncomfortable during the late afternoon... More

So here I am in Denver with weather to die for. Dry, low 70's and oh so different r eat from Houston. Sat on the patio with colleagues with similar interests. Wine being one of them. The Camus 40th anniversary was my favorite followed by a Zin of which vineyard I forget. Barollo too was a fitting wine for yummy... More

Cozy modern ambiance from alfresco tables on Larimer Square, the best block in downtown Denver, to nice interior, and alfresco quiet courtyard in the back, complete with a fountain. We chose the later on a nice sunny May day. Great friendly service. Nicely valued groupings of three 2oz pour wine flights from sparkling, white, rose and reds from around the... More

During a week in Denver on business, I ate here alone. Sometimes you can feel a bit self conscious eating on your own, but the staff were really friendly and sat me at the bar where we had a nice chat til I settled down with my book. I had a sauvignon blanc wine flight (great) & chatted with the... More
