Great service

I was at a private event in the basement, which I was happy for as the place was very hot except for there. The wine people were very knowledgable about wine for sure. The dinner was great, but the friendly service was even better. Good job.

I know a little bit about wine but not much. The staff weren't pretentious at all and made me feel welcome and informed instead of outcast. Appetizers and entrees were great! I recommend building your own cheese plate to explore new flavors!

Open, airy, comfortable, friendly staff. Amazing pear and Gorgonzola pizza. I'm not a wine connoisseur so I won't comment, but I enjoyed what I drank.

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 plates,... 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
