Cru serves both full menus in the upper floor and sports a wine bar with a really nice little menu in the cellar. We visited the wine bar for a desert and I also had some wine. Tasty pannacotta with rhubarb paired with a eiswein was a good start. Some hearty tuscan red with olives was also not bad. I... More

We showed up late and dilly dallied with our wine choice- the server was patient and helpful. When the kitchen was getting ready to close, he let us know so we could get our order in. The food was overall great- the soup was a tad on the salty side. (I still loved it, though). Incredibly cozy and comfortable environment.

Celebrating our youngest daughters 18th birthday, our family of 5 wanted a good restaurant experience and we got it at CRU! Selecting the meny of the week placed us in the wine bar downstairs, but the atmosphere was super and the waiters were very attentive. The food expectations were high coming in based on reputation and they did not let... More

With foreign colleagues visiting Oslo on a Monday evening, the 4 of us were pleasantly surprised with our dinner at Cru. We all ordered the 3 course menu-of-the-week (chef's choice), and had wine by the glass and by the bottle from their "little wine list". They also have an a la cart menu and an "big wine list" as well.... More

This is a great place for a couples. Fine dining up stairs. Down stairs is a more informal venue (not tested). The food was good, let down by the dessert. They have an excellent wine cellar, with a very reasonable mark up compared to the bottle shop prices. The sommelier deserves to be mentioned. Very attentive and listen to the... More

For a while Cru was not what it used to be, but now they are back!!! If you are willing to spend a little extra, this place is definitely worth it. Great food, service paired with great wine. Reservations highly recommended so that you get a great table.

Our team of 6 went there for a celebration and had a 3-course meal and a few bottles of wine. The staff was very attentive and made sure explain the courses and types of wine. Please try the desert Blood and Snow. It's very tasty.

The atmosphere is great, the service very good, but the fixed menu of five courses was just too little food! And we were also dissapointed that a restaurant with fixed menues does not have wine menues. So big a wine list, but our wines were not as good as we wanted - and the we had a bottle....

Offering both an informal downstairs service and a more formal (but not stuffy) service upstairs, Cru was more than I expected. Very cosy environment, perfect for date night, a business dinner or a dinner with friends. Pleasant staff present delicious food from local producers.
