I regularly have both lunch and dinner at Cru, with both colleagues and family. I continue to return because the service is always great and friendly and the food is consistent. My spouse and I are vegetarians and there are a couple of items we can eat here, which is a couple more than at most places in town. The beer draft beer always tastes fresh which is a big deal for me, and they make a good martini. Try them for lunch, there is a smaller crowd and it can be an intimate experience.

This has to be one of the best wine bars and food in Knoxville. I like the location and service but the selection of wine is very good.

Cru is a good place for some wine and light meals. The wine list is extensive but a bit over-priced in my opinion. Some half-price wine deals help. Tonight we shared five plates - three were good and two very average. Especially good were the scallop and the sliders with TN bacon small plates. We did not like the tenderloin sliders and the crabcakes.
Service is good and the setting is nice.

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