Cru, although in a mall-type locale is a nice mildly upscale dinner spot for romance. Many items are smaller and designed to be shared tapas style. The Filet with polenta is excellent, and the fact that Nama Sushi (Voted Best) is part of their offerings, makes this a nice evening out. Wine selection is also superb.

Great food and wine! Nice atmosphere for a date and the prices aren't that bad! Fun to share small dishes or go for the Pizza for something a little more substantial but still affordable!

Stopped in here while driving from Indiana to North Carolina in late may 2012 based on recommendation from a knoxville resident. Spent the night on east side of Knoxville and was worth the drive to west side of city to sample Cru Bistro. Had the filet and grits-wow was it good. Not a wine drinker but was impressed with selection. Great place for romantic dinner or to meet up with friends. People in kitchen know there stuff-food well prepared and presentation was wonderful.

Extensive wine list and refreshing featured drinks, like the Peach Sangria I had, are the main attraction. The cornbread with pepper sauce was amazing with rich flavors. The trio of small bite sandwiches provided enough food for two people. Waffles with fried chicken strips combined savory and sweet to perfection. Service was slow and the waiter apologetic. Perhaps they need more servers on a busy Sunday like Mother's Day.
