A very nice place - we ate in the wine bar downstairs and had a very nice Rosso di Montalcino. Unfortunately my steak was very poor - but our waitress was good enough to replace it without any fuss with one of the fish dishes. Attentive service, nice atmosphere.

We booked a table in the restaurant section for my husbands birthday and had an enjoyable meal. We decided on the set menu, but I asked to substitute the dessert for stilton cheese. Which they acceped readily. The food was really good. My husband however found the main course a bit on the small side. Along with the food came... More

Had a glass of Rioja after a very busy day. They have a great selection. Food here is also lovely and the atmosphere,interior and light design inside is perfect for a romantic date or night out with friends. Recommend

Great atmosphere in the restaurant. Candle lights and homey feeling. Good service. We enjoyed a 3 course pre-set dinner and were really happy with our stay.

Cru serves both full menus in the upper floor and sports a wine bar with a really nice little menu in the cellar. We visited the wine bar for a desert and I also had some wine. Tasty pannacotta with rhubarb paired with a eiswein was a good start. Some hearty tuscan red with olives was also not bad. I... More

We showed up late and dilly dallied with our wine choice- the server was patient and helpful. When the kitchen was getting ready to close, he let us know so we could get our order in. The food was overall great- the soup was a tad on the salty side. (I still loved it, though). Incredibly cozy and comfortable environment.

Selecting the meny of the week placed us in the wine bar downstairs, but the atmosphere was super and the waiters were very attentive. The food expectations were high coming in based on reputation and they did not let... More

With foreign colleagues visiting Oslo on a Monday evening, the 4 of us were pleasantly surprised with our dinner at Cru. We all ordered the 3 course menu-of-the-week (chef's choice), and had wine by the glass and by the bottle from their "little wine list". They also have an a la cart menu and an "big wine list" as well.... More
