We adore any, and all, kind words from our patrons, but this one had us brimming ear to ear … so of course we had to share! “The chef is a graduate from Le Cordon Blu in France. You can tell. You can also tell a lot about the place when more than half of the …

"Another classic Holy City comfort food institution, Cru Café is in a yellow house off Pinckney Street and serves Low Country dishes like smoked pork belly, a toothsome four-cheese macaroni and fried oyster salad in its cozy space." #CruChs #CruCafe #Chs

Probably had the best meal ever on Friday night. The brussel sprouts were absolutely delicious. We had a party of four and each of our dinners was fabulous. The staff was knowledgeable and most attentive. Don't miss it if you are in Charleston.

Wow. The best food all under one roof. We had the fried green tomatoes, which were amazing. The macaroni was perfect and the duck was fabulous. If you're in Charleston, visit here. It would be wise to set a reservation beforehand.

Cru Cafe 18 Pickney st Charleston sc We had a delicious lunch at Cru Cafe today. They are located in a house off Pickney St. They have indoor and outdoor covered seating as well as a chefs table that looks into the kitchen. For appetizers We had the butter lettuce salad and fried green tomatoes with pork belly croutons. Both were delicious and had good flavor profiles. For an entree we shared the shrimp pasta and it had an intense fresh lemony flavor that was amazing. I believe the pasta was fresh and the mushrooms added a bit of earthy texture that was great! We will be going back to Cru. Be sure to make reservations. Urban Cowgill December 2015

Very friendly and attentive staff; mussels are excellent; added bacon to burger but so salty it ruined the flavor of what would have been a great meal. Place is cramped and noisy; wait staff flying about seems like an accident waiting to happen.

We made reservations here for our anniversary. The food and service were amazing! I highly recommend the four cheese macaroni side - it is a must have. There is also a very affordable wine selection. The osso bucco with sweet potato gnocchi was also incredible and dangerously filling. One note: the reviews say "romantic" but it is a bit of a tight dining area which does detract a bit from the intimacy. I would say it's more quaint, but it is still a must go for a meal in Charleston!

This place is really cute and tiny like many other places in the city. The food is pretty great, though it didn't completely blow my mind. It got loud quickly but wasn't a big deal after Rush was over. It was a little more expensive than my party was expecting but not too bad
