Came here for a quick bite and a drink before a comedy show. Was lucky that we were seated quickly as the restaurant, both inside and outside, was packed. Food was good and served quite quickly. Wine selection was extensive and the staff very knowledgeable....More

I would not say that this is an inexpensive place to have a glass of wine and a small plate but we felt so welcomed on a cold, Saturday evening. The place was busy so we sat at the bar and the bartender was prompt,...More

Excellent pizza, great wine choice and very good service. Rates are very fair for the quality of the food and service. If I had to give one comment to improve: the size of the pizza could be a little bigger.

My wife and I went in for dinner and we were welcomed with an amazing assortment of tapas style plates. The fondue and tomato soup were amazing.

Really nice selection of wine. Alexander works Tuesday through Saturday and knows wine, how to entertain. I’ve not dined at Cru but the food looks tasty. It’s around the block from the Four Seasons Hotel, the best hotel in Denver.

They have a bar, but can't remember about beer selection. If they do have beer, I would bet the selection is limited.
