Very similar to Grand Cru the previous restaurant in this space

Grand Cru, which we liked, abruptly closed and soon reopened in the same space by the same owners as Terra. The big change seems to be the lessening of small plates they served at Grand Cru. The biggest benefit of eating here was demonstrated last night when it was raining hard and we had tickets... read more

The last review that I submitted about Grand Cru that Trip Advisor published was actually written about Terra, the restaurant that has replaced Grand Cru. I don't know why they have published it as such, since I have explained on multiple occasions that Grand Cru is closed. If you 're interested in reading about Terra, just read my latest review...

My wife and I visited the Cru wine bar in Englewood with high expectations and we were not disappointed. We found the service friendly and attentive ( many reviews indicated a problem with the service). Our salads were good, but probably not worth the $10 price. We thought the wine selection and quality was above average. However, the entrees is... More

Can't argue with the convenience. Seems like they'd like to be a hipster gourmet place, but they don't want to try that hard. Food was okay, but overpriced. Staff is very nice. Go for the location, but nothing more.

I used to live in the area and we went to Grand Cru all the time. On a trip back last week I met up with some friends at Grand Cru. It was wonderful and just as good as I remembered it. The Shrimp and Crab Nachos are incredible, as is the wine list.

Our group was 4 adults for dinner. I enjoy not being rushed for dinner but the service was soooooo slow. I will give the reason we were sat at the high tables near the bar. First of all, they were sooooo uncomfortable. I felt I was sitting in a high chair with no FOOT REST. My feet were dangling the... More

I made reservation for 6:30 pm on Friday, February 15 prior to going to The Bergen Performing Arts Center to see the Whispers & Stylistics. I was greeted by the Hostess who brought us directly to our table. Moe was our Server. He was very personable. He took our drink order as we reviewed the menu. Our drinks we brought... More
