    We sat outside so the noise level was non-existent. All 4 of us had wine flights - which were lovely. :) Peri Peri Cauliflower was perfection as usual. This was our first time there so late; we typically hit Cru around 4:30PM and it was busy at 6:30PM.

    The food was really good! My one complaint would be we had a charcuterie board we were still nibbling on and our main courses were brought out and we had to scramble to find room for all of our plates. We would’ve preferRed to have more time to enjoy our charcuterie board so the table wasn’t so crowded. The music is pretty loud which sometimes made it hard to hear the other people at our own table. Overall good food and service.

    We were sat in the “lounge” which definitely looked like a refurbished storage space based on the appearance of the floors. Weren’t greeted by a server for 15-20 minutes (even for water), despite all tables around us being waited on, until we asked who was taking care of our table. That being said, after we had a server, our food and drinks did come out quickly and tasted delicious. Would try again, but maybe at the Westshore location.

    Knowledge of our server was amazing! She knew the wine, food and pairings to a T. Food was delicious and came out fast. The presentation of everything was perfect! If I had one thing that wasn’t a full five starts it was the noise level, but it was tolerable. We were also seated by the bar so that affected the noise. We will definitely be back!

    I think the portion sizes have definitely decreased since I last went. We ordered the “5” charcuterie board, and it barely came with any cheese! They give you a full baguette but little to no cheeses and meats. When I went over a year ago, I remember the portions being much better. Other than that, it’s fantastic. Generous pours of wine and fabulous service staff!

    Me and my girlfriend went for a Valentine’s Day date. I got the ceviche and a steak sandwich and she got the Cru burger both meals were delicious, didn’t take more than 15 minutes to come out and went well with the wines we chose. A great waiter, very polite, attentive to our drinks and requests made the night go even smoother. Would recommend to anyone a fan of wine or not

    Pleasantly surprised. Not sure what's taken us so long to try this gem. Music and vibe was perfect for date night. Service from all of the staff from the host to the waitress, even staff passing by were so nice and informative. Food was delish. My salmon that I added to the cru salad was cooked perfectly med rare. My husband loved the burger he didn't want to share. Bold wine flight had nice size pours and were a great blend.
