My wife and I like to come here reasonably often to enjoy an excellent selection of wines (including wine flights), great appetizers, pizzas and entrees, and excellent people watching while sitting on the outside patio. I especially like their mussels, cheese plates, and charcuterie plate. The service is always friendly. My only issues are, at least for me, the music... More

Always enjoy meeting up with friends here. Been coming here for years. The atmosphere, wait-staff, food recommendations and manager are always top notch! I've had the manager pick out wines for me several times and he is always on the money! Wayne the manager is like a walking wine encyclopedia. Went this past weekend for birthday celebration and for appetizers... More

Its Monday night. I called to pick up an order of tuna tartar - which is usually good, and a steak pizza and diet coke. I arrived to pick it up. The restaurant wasn't very busy. I got there around 8pm. I took my meal - after leaving a tip, and not opening the boxes as the boxes did have... More

I tried several South American wines.... great stories about the wines and great service. I wasn't interested in eating food, just sampling the wines.... it was so much fun!!! I'll be back

Nancy has so much knowledge of wine. Ridiculously well informed. New chef is superb. Some Of the best food in Collin County in a setting that feels so non-suburban. Filet with all trimmings is 25.00. Bananas Foster and chocolate lava cake outstanding. This is the heart of romantic in Collin County.

Table in middle of restaurant was set for at least 16 but only 2 couples showed up, plus the wine rep, Brian Fowler, and Wayne, the chef and his friend. Very surprising considering we have been to a very nice wine dinner about a year ago that was held in one of their private back rooms. This time the back... More

April 13, 3 of my girlfriends met at CRU to celebrate one of the girls birthday. We had order 3 things to share: scallops, crab-cakes and pizza with blue cheese and pears. All 3 meals have been very tasty, but my favorite was the pizza with blue cheese and pears. I'm still craving this taste with glass of wine. The... More

Try to get Steven as your waiter. He recommended a pizza that wasn't on the menu and it was very good. He is very knowledgable about the wines and personable.
