Cru in Houston at this location is a fun place to enjoy relaxing outdoor seating, have some nice light wines (white or red), and experience some tasty small plates. You also can sit inside if desired. Do not expect fast service, need some patience, and...More

Cru River Oaks, overseen by Annette, is a true wine bar. Excellent selections, substantial pours and just enough ambience to justify why you stopped in. The selection depth is excellent and the wines are clearly hand selected. Pricing is spot on fair as well. Stop...More

Cute place with outdoor patio, with plenty of garage parking. Nice selection of wine flights if you are in the mood to sample. Also, specials on bottles of wine Sunday and Thursday night.

We dined at Cru rather spontaneously and had a wonderful lunch -- great pizza and tomato basil soup. Service was prompt and professional and the ambience made it a charming experience.

Hidden gem by Tootsie's off Kirby and Westheimer. We sat outside because it was loud inside. Professional and attentive staff. Good wine list. We enjoyed a wine from Oregon. Shared the cheese and meat platter ($15). I'll be back. Menu looked interesting.

What a lovely place! Tasteful, sophisticated, classy, and authentic - this is a must do for wine buffs, romantics and even business associates. This is a gem of a place. Try the wine 'flights', which give you exposure to 3 wines at a time for...More
