Food was decent Portions too big, from appetizer to entrée we had left overs. When the waitress spilled my drink made table sticky and she could not recommend a wine served with the meal I ordered said Moscato since that's her favorite.. wrong!

A little pricey, but a nice, upscale option in the Cedar Valley. Wait staff is top notch. Salads and desserts are phenomenal, most entrees are too.

Went there for a fun girls night. The menu had a limited amount of choices and the food was actually a bit bland. It sounded very good, and posh, but just did not live up to the hype that was presented on the menu. The service was fine and the food wasn't terrible.

We were just in town for the weekend and found the restaurant on-line and after checking out the menu decided to give it a try. I have to be honest.....when we arrived for our 7:45 reservation on Saturday night our table wasn't quite ready (C'mon people go home and give up your table!) We decided to just wait at the... More

I had not been well (a cold), had recovered and it was very cold...and I was alone on business in Waterloo after the blizzard in Jan. Found this online and the roads cleared enough to find my way there. I truly enjoyed the wine, company, healthy, flavorful, inventive food and atmosphere. This is a must visit, I will be back...

Cu remains one of our favorite restaurants in the Cedar Valley. They periodically rotate the menus so you can always find something different. Usually have very tasty appetizers and great entrees with usually a nice grilled vegetable medley. Lobster Bisque soup and Creme Brûlée are certainly favorites
