Very quiet (on the night we went) with a nice atmosphere. The service was great. The food was very good but did not "wow" me. The wine I sampled was very nice and the waiter seemed very knowledgeable about their selections.

Looking around at the dishes as they came out I literally had food envy the last time I was here.... so here we are back for dinner with all of our friends and family. Another fantastic evening was had by all and we couldn't rate the staff, service, quality wine and food highly enough. Thank you CRU

Good menu and good wine.... it's a simple combination that they're providing very well. Lovely spot in the Domain which can offer both a relaxed and intimate athmosphere. Menu has good array of options and isn't over priced. I had the filet mignon which was cooked to a perfect medium rare accompanied by a light and fruity Pinot Noir from... More

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner. We took advantage of three different flights of wine (a flight has three glasses of different wines of a similar variety. We tried a nice variety of wine and food. We enjoyed the mussels, the lamb lollipops and the cheese plate. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

Staying in Downtown Austin while we visit our daughter for Thanksgiving. We all stopped at Cru for a bite to eat and sat ourtside. Not a full dinner but pizza and salads. Pizza with steak was just melt in your mouth. My wife had a beet salad with figs and goat cheese which was to die for. Great wine and... More

Great wine bar in the Domain area. Really nice bartender (pictured below) and bistro style food. I sat at the bar and had the lamb lollipops as an app and the roasted chicken as my entree, which were both really good. It felt like a really great neighborhood spot with a good bar scene if you are into wine. I... More

We had a nice dinner here. However a member of our group who had been there frequently was disappointed that the portions had become smaller and some of the items had changed not to the better in recent times. One would hope that these trends would not continue.

If this place was near where I lived I would be in there every weekend. Great cellar of wine selections. Friends brought us there Sunday before dinner. Sunday is 1/3 off all bottled wine. They also have flights of wine that look tempting. We ordered a bottle and some appys. The Charcuterie Board was nice for two with cheese and... More

Visited here for a friend's birthday and I loved the way the staff were happy for us to just order appetisers, then more appetisers then more. The food was excellent, especially the lamb lollipops and the staff very friendly, made us feel very welcome.

My wife and I have dined at both locations at Cru. We received excellent service at both. We were offered great choices of entrees and wine. The décor of both also add to the experience. It felt special.
