Excellent restaurant to be when you're looking for fancy and not a lot of noise. Staff was wonderful, food was just right.
The staff was lovely, the food delicious and well priced. We truly enjoyed our evening. Thank you
Excellent attentive service. Food is fresh and flavourful.
Staff was very pleasant and knowledgable.
Crusted Bransino was superb..
2 course Prix Fixe for lunch is a nice option, well done!
We had the 2 courses special and portion was just right. Food very tasty and price reasonable.
very small quantities of moderately high-priced food. Ordered scallops - got 3 pieces...
Desserts were excellent! Great lunch spot for business meals.
This is my first time back since the refurbishment and I really enjoyed myself. The food was excellent and the atmosphere perfect for catching up with an old friend.
Great experience, overall. The food was outstanding, esp the pear tarte tatin. My date was blown away!
Atmosphere is beautiful, was very slow on a weekend, but we were there early before a Leafs game...service excellent. The food was a little hit and miss...Tuna with XO appetizer was outstanding, Black Cod also very good, sides interesting and good. Very disappointed in the quality and taste of the Ribeye - was cooked medium yet it was somehow dry? Not sure what was up with that steak. I'd stick to Seafood here
The waiter suggested we opted for the 5 course chefs menu - it did not disappoint! Fantastic food and great meal in very nice settings.
Had a fantastic experience. Service was great, servers were informed and helped make the dining experience pleasant. Highly suggest the Bartender's choice for a drink, they make some fun off-the-menu cocktails. The branzino is out of this world.
The food was a tad disappointing. THE GOOD: The Brussels sprouts were amazing, as was the whipped brown butter for the sourdough bread and the crispy potato. THE DISAPPOINTING: The rabbit risotto special was lacking in flavour and had barely any meat but a lot of fat. The cauliflower cheese also lacked flavour.
CRU environment was very fresh and Clean friendly service, Great food. We will definitely go back
While the atmosphere and service were excellent, the food was not up to expectations for a restaurant of this nature.
Food was fantastic! Service was great also. Restaurant is beautiful, great menu.
Menu could use some diversity but if you like steak it's nice
The food was good, but it was relatively pricey so par for the course, and not particularly spectacular. The cavatelli (the pasta) was oddly dense and hard to chew but the sauce was good. The shrimp tempura was also good.
Excellent food and service!
We were told to leave the table for next reservation in 2 hours. We wish this requirement was informed before we dine in or at least remind the customer when they make the reservation. The gentleman original words -“We need the table at 7:15pm. I think two hour is enough”. We wish he could at least show a little bit genuine customer service instead of patronizing us. Totally ruin the dining mood. But the servers were friendly and food was nice.
We visited from NYC and the Tuna Tartare was awesome as was the Steak and their Fish Dish. If I am in Toronto again, I will be back.
We had high hopes for dinner at CRU and were sorely disappointed. It started with the cocktails. They took forever to get to us (there didn't seem to be the bartender) and the pours were minute. My husband and I drink vodka on the rocks and the vodka was brought to me in a separate rocks glass and the ice was in a second rocks glass. The vodka was maybe one finger high. It was pitiful.
The first courses were very good--shrimp tempura, and three Caesar salads. We ordered our entrees and my husband ordered the waygu beef at $30. per ounce. He ordered three ounces. When it came, it looked ridiculous on a little appetizer plate and when he tasted it (we know it should be fatty for flavor) it was pure fat. I tasted it and knew there was no way I would eat that. He sent it back. I ordered the duck. It tasted ok--very plain, but the accompanying black rice was so overly sweet I couldn't eat it.
All this and I haven't even started on the service. The hostess was lovely and sat us at a great table right away. There were only three other tables occupied. The first person who came to the table was very friendly, filled our water glasses and left. Then our waiter came by, told us specials and asked about drinks. He never smiled and throughout the entire evening acted as if we were ruining his night. Later during the meal my friend asked what glass of wine he thought would go with her entree and ran away from the table so fast I couldn't ask him what wine he would suggest to pair with the duck. He was awful . I would suggest that CRU management take a good look at its operation and decide if it wants to be in the restaurant business.
Chicken sandwich was a fatty flavourless mess
Great place for lunch if you want private and peaceful business lunch.
Fantastic food and service
Too loud and not good food
Excellent food and service definitely want to go back
Excellent food and great service. Some plants would help with the ambience.
Excellent and service at CRU. Was there for a business meeting and it went very well.
Overall experience was very good. The fish was a bit dry though
Looking forward to the next time! Food is amazing, the staff is very attentive and customer focused. The ambience is a perfect balance.
Every item was delicious and the lunch prix-fix is extremely filling at a reasonable price. Love the venue and Im happy something just as good (or even better) has replaced lbs.
The pasta here is better than Terroni which I just visited a few days before. Very well done on each dish. loved it and will return again.
Great Experience..highly recommend..the finest food,wines and fantastic service
We were celebrating our anniversary and chose this restaurant because it was a hot spot for romantic setting and fairly close to where we lived. We chose to sit at the bar instead because we wanted to try out their bar snacks. The food was good; enjoyed the beef tartare as a sharing item. The service was great! She was attentive and very friendly.
Great meal! Delicious steaks and Italian sodas. Highly recommended.
Good atmosphere, delightful experience
Lovely room and excellent service. Food was outstanding. Saturday night, not busy at all, quite different than during the week. I highly recommend this for a special occasion or date night.
The hubs and I came here for a special night out in the city. With all the options for dining, it was difficult to pick just one. We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Not only was the staff helpful, encouraging and kind but Edie was especially knowledgeable about the regional food and beverages served. We ordered the oysters, 16oz ribeye and the scallops. The steak and scallops were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The New Brunswick oysters were tender and delicious. Everything was seasoned well with subtle hints and flavors bursting with every bite.
The only confusing part was the place was surprising empty for a Friday night. We are hoping it was a fluke because it should be packed every day, with the quality food and excellent service this place provides!
Food and service were excellent! Quiet room is great for business lunch.
Hidden gem in the financial district - detailed touches & excellent execution. One of the best selected & priced wine lists downtown too.
