Enjoyed delicious food and an excellent bottle of wine. To my pleasant surprise the bottle was half price on Sunday.

We go to the CRU almost every week and mostly on Friday nights. They have a nice happy hour,three dollars glasses of wine until seven. The servings are reasonable and good for sharing. I had the skirt steak with mac and cheese. Wonderful! The pizzas are great also. I love the wild mushroom.The bar is the seat of our choice. Bartenders are so nice and attentive.

A good way to sample this restaurant is to come at lunchtime on any Wednesday and get their gourmet burger for five dollars! They have a rather complete menu for the most discriminating tastes. Excellent service and ambience complete this experience.

We love Tapas restaurants and this one was great. Like another reviewer we lived in the DC/Northern VA area, and had lots of great restaurants. It's always expensive but it's much less expensive here than DC, for comparable food. We had 5 small plates, and were impressed by all. We can recommend the scallops blt, ceviche, stuffed mushrooms, quesadilla and chicken pesto sliders. The various sauces for each dish were nicely spiced--inventive and excellent. The service was also great. The waiter told us about the wines we might like and let us taste a couple. They have a decent wine selection and also have full dinners if you don't want tapas. There are 2 sides, and the right side was very loud so we moved. They have entertainment sometimes and we may return for the jazz brunch.
