Excellent service, ambiance and food. Happy hour is really Nice to have. Casual elegance and good selection of food and Wine. A little pricey. So important to continue to have specials. We live close by and Will go back.

Just ate dinner with another couple using buy one get one free coupons and paid too much. I had short ribs which tasted bad and were extremely fatty. Everyone else had chicken (the only thing under $20, it was $19.50). It was virtually tasteless. We will never go back.

This restaurant is located in a lively shopping center. We stopped there for lunch. The quiche was quite lovely but the truffle fries were amazing. The service was quick with perfect sized portions. Definitely not to miss.

Our dinner ... Flowering Kale Ceasar, Arugula crispy goat cheese salad, Taste of the Atlantic (coconut/curry broth was really good), The new Cru steak .... All were very good. Rick, our server, was informative, and personable. Nice atmosphere.

Fine dining and classy. We sat inside at a table and from start to finish the care and attention we received was outstanding. It is fine dining pricing with smaller portions and fresh herbs. Love the Cru.

We started off our trip to fort Myers with a visit to Cru. USA Today ranked it as #1 in fort Myers- clearly an inside job. This place was empty and bad food. We started with the truffle fries. It was great. They should have stopped there. We then ordered creme fresh tacos and smoked salmon dip. Both horrible. Even... More

This is my second time visiting and actually stayed at the Crowne knowing I could enjoy a nice meal here. Appetizers were good, had the foie gras and scallop appetizers. Scallops were slightly undercooked and lacked the pan seared top and bottom. Flavorful however undercooked. Had the filet as I wanted a small piece of beef. For a filet, it... More

I last dined at Cru in 2013. The experience caused me to write a very favorable review. I had not returned until recently only because other venues competed for my palate and Cru just slid off my radar screen. Fast forward to 2016 and a return visit. Our party of four was seated quickly for our reservation and the side... More
