Slow service, the wings were okay but the ranch dressing was watered down. The decor was fab but the service could have been better.

We've been going to Cru almost since it opened. In the beginning we loved it because of James, the bar manager. From day one, he knew our names and made us feel at home (yeah, just like Cheers). He was also very gifted at making drinks. He'd ask you what you typically like to drink and then make you a new creation using similar ingredients. It was great! On our third visit, we started ordering food. We were surprised that in such a small kitchen, they could make such great food. A few months later, the chef left and was replaced by two people who just didn't have the same talent, and the level of the food dropped drastically. Thankfully, several months ago, Cru hired a new young chef who is now making relevant, seasonal food using organic ingredients. Cru is once again one of our favorite spots to grab a casual meal and drink. A word of caution. Cru specializes in unique wines, beers and cocktails. Don't go in there expecting to find cheap grocery store beer.

Very comfortable seating. Limited menu but very good nonetheless. Great vintage coctails. Great service. The music was house ambient which I love. I would give it 8 out of 10 stars. A place you won't be disappointed that you spent your money here.
