I have been dining and wining at CRU for many years and it is always just wonderful. The waiters are knowledgeable and have a good sense of what I would like. The dining choices are superb, depending on your mood. I'll be going back soon.

Visited this restaurant with my wife. Started with our favorite appetizer — - beignet! Amazing! Flights of Cabernet and Pinot Noir accompanied our salads and dinners. Everything tasted great. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We are frequent guests here and it used to be just for a glass of wine or two. We recently have taken advantage of dinner special events and found the food to be excellent!
