Food was good, but not outstanding. None of the dishes really stood out, but they were all tasty. We split 5 dishes between three people, although Cru isn't really much of a tapas place.. regardless we were all still decently full by the end of the night.
Started off with the caesar, which was pretty standard tasting. The pieces of lettuce were big and had to be cut with a knife, and the croutons were toasted pieces of bread rather than the usual hard store bought ones.
We also ordered the hand-cut frites, which were served with something that looked like and probably was mayo. The plate was pretty big, and the fries were good. They were soft and tasted more potatoey than regular fast food fries.
The Calamari, which was tender and gooddd.
The Beef Short Rib w/mac and cheese. Decent... but kept reminding me of Memphis Blues, which when I think of gives me the feeling of being overly stuffed.
The Lamb Chop. The Lamb was nice. Very pink and nicely spiced. The spätzle it came with... not so great.
Service was slow to start. After we got our drinks and were ready to order, the waiter didn't show up for a while. But when we got his attention everything was smooth after that.
The blue lights make the place seem cheesy when spotting the place while driving by, but beyond that little foyer, the restaurant looks pretty good. It's small and intimate, dim but not dark. Nice place to take a date, although it was a little loud because of the size of the place. Be sure to make reservations before coming.
All the food is kind of on the verge of being really really good, but just falls short a little. I'd like to come back and sample some of the other dishes to see if one really shines.
