Cru is a unique restaurant to the Brainerd Area, promoting a great selection of wine in a room that to me is quite similar to great wine tasting rooms at different vinyards that I have been too. The food is upscale with the opportunity to try some small plate options and some are really outstanding. Service is very good and attentive. While not a great restaurant in metropolitan terms they are putting out unique and tasty dishes that make this restaurant a top 3 in the lakes area.

We have eaten here several times and have always had a delicious meal. The menu and quality are what you expect in the city. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. Even though the restaurant is dressier than Grandviews other restaurants, our kids like Cru best. We loved the pear and blue cheese flat bread and the scallops and fish were perfectly cooked.
