The plus side: attractive décor, relatively quiet, reservations accepted. The down side: somewhat limited menu, expensive, average food. The duck was praised by our waiter (Victor) but it was very unattractively presented: sliced breast on a mash of same-colored vegetables). And it wasn't really that good. There are lots of restaurants in the area and I do not recommend this... More

New trendy fusion/eclectic restaurant in the Bell Towers mall. We heard that it had a great tapas bar and decided to try that before going to the main restaurant.

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.
