Westword's Description

Wine cubbies line the back wall of the high-ceilinged sliver of Larimer Square space occupied by Cru: A Wine Bar. The richly appointed room fills with an after-work crowd in the late afternoon, as business types wind down over a glass of wine and a snack during happy hour while others rev up for a big evening ahead. Later at night, the low cherry tables and bar are illuminated by the soft glow of candles, and the conversations get more intimate. Although the big draw is wine - offered by the bottle, by the glass and in dozens of wine flights - Cru proffers sizable cheese and charcuterie boards as well as a full dinner menu to soak up all that alcohol. The wine menu is more international, with bottles that originate everywhere from South America to California; the food selection includes cheese plates and stone-fired pizzas. All the servers give you very personalized attention, and that and the bar's intimate feel make this a perfect choice for a romantic rendezvous or a laid-back meeting.

    LOVE the wine flights! Great way to try a few different wines for relatively cheap! Great food too! I typically associate wine bars with appetizers and tapas but we had dinner here and were quite impressed!

    Great deals on glasses of wine. I would suggest the reds! They are always good!

    They have a screaming deal on their Mother's Day Brunch! Fresh ingredients and experts to help you with wine pairing sounds like a great way to celebrate Mom.

  • Jillian on 02/17/10

    The menu is always changing, which is nice, and their flights of wine and cheese are by far my favorites!

  • Kelly H. on 09/26/10

    Freshly added to the fall menu... butternut squash ravioli. So good!

  • Jessica C. on 04/09/10

    Get the mussels to start, and the Kobe beef with potato gratin is amazing! One of my new favorite restaurants in Denver.

    Pear Gorgonzola pizza.... So amazing, a must try!
