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.

Come for the wine and stay for the wine. They have a great selection of wines and something for everyone. The staff is extremely friendly and the bartender knowledgeable about wine if you need some assistance with a selection. The food is solid with the pizzas being my favorite items on the menu. if you find yourself in the Domain... More

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary in April. I had never been to Cru before & I most certainly will not be going back. The waitress we had was a snob, rude and argumentative with us. I asked about the wine and she spoke to me as I had no right asking questions. A bug flew in... More

When our party of 13 was looking somewhere to eat on a recent visit to Austin, I was unsure how family friendly this place would be. I was delighted with staffs accommodations for the five young children we had with us, along with three strollers. The food was delicious and we had a wonderful time. I had the honey roasted...

I have been here twice, the food is consistently fantastic. If you are not satisfied tell the waitress....she will make it right. I love their steak signature pizza....but I have tried almost every appetizer, fantastic. Their wine is of course the best....I have a bottle every time I go there.
