The drag brunch was amazing!!! The courtyard is beautiful. Bottomless mimosas/bloodys! The queens put on a stellar performance!
Loved it! Cozy setting, and you really get a front row seat to the show for drag brunches.
Everyone go here! The food is incredible and the service and ambiance are perfect. Thank you!!
I celebrated my 60th birthday at Cru's Drag Brunch with my gal pals and we had an amazingly GOOD time!! The drinks, food, service and entertainment are beyond compare. I will definitely return when next in NOLA and will recommend Cru to everyone visiting your great city!!
Oh my gosh what a fun experience the drag brunch was! The food was incredible!
Truly one of my favourite times during my week in New Orleans. The service was amazing and hilarious. Im still dreamin about the short ribs too woof
Amazing experience, went for drag breakfast. It’s very loud so make sure you are clear with your waiter about what you need. The drag breakfast menu and prices are different from what is listed on open table.
Valentine’s Day. The front of house was a little disorganized and while some people thought the hostess’ brash way of joking with the customers was funny, others clearly didn’t. The service left something to be desired but the food was amazing! Shrimp and grits were creamy and the foie gras and grits was the best thing I ate while in New Orleans. The ambiance was great once we were seated and we really enjoyed the location. Would definitely head back if we were ever hear again.
Busy Valentine's night. But, took 40 minutes to get cocktails!
Service was dreadful. Food good. Terrible wine selection. Need to check the bill. A $100 bottle of wine that we ordered was out of stock. After several complaints that it took an hour to get a cocktail and no wine they then said they were out of that wine and offered a couple of substitutes that the waiter knew nothing about. Then they comped us on a cheep bottle but the $100 bottle was on the bill anyway. So go for good food but expect to wait quite a while (2 1/2 hours for two of us) and not much attention.
My birthday dinner was better than I could have imagined
Drag brunch was awesome. House punch was great. Short ribs fantastic. Telling everyone about it and definitely coming back.
Ordered the lobster roll. It was uncooked - actually came on a hot dog bun - no kidding
I usually dine in the courtyard but due to the weather, we were seated inside. There was only one other table, a party of four. The acoustics are horrible inside. We had to open one of the French doors to let the sound escape.
The server was friendly and efficient, however, I ordered a dirty martini with olives. She returned with a dry martini with lemon and apologized that they were out of olives. I drank it anyway but was shocked to see the charge was $18. In New Orleans for well gin? The oyster app was tasty, the fish was unmentionable.
I've had decent meals at Cru in the past. This was not one of them.
Great fun. Good food.
SO much fun and such pure goodness. Lots of love and joy over beautiful food.
Party of 8, 5pm sitting on Saturday and they were out of items which they didn't inform us until they delivered everyone else's food. 50% of the items. Service was awful. drinks took over 30 minutes each time. after 2 hours we left hungry and thirsty. NO Manager or Owner available to speak to. Even the French fries were raw. So Sad!! They need help! Great location and space.
The staff were so welcoming and friendly! My friends and I went for a Drag Brunch and the women were amazing! I definitely recommend 🙌🏽
Everything was devine! The show was outstanding and entertaining. Service was attentive. Food was excellent and just enough! Unlimited cocktails???? Oh yes!
The drag brunch was great! However, the speaker system was awful making it a little to loud because one of the speakers didn’t work at all. Other than that we really enjoyed ourselves.
The Queens were delightful but my food was cold and I was seated outside despite making reservations for a table inside. barely saw any of the show and the bloody Mary was terrible.
Went with a friend before the Marigny Opera Ballet. It was happy hour. Had a glass of wine and truffle fries from happy hour menu. And tuna tartare and a crab cake from the menu. The food was excellent. The service was friendly and professional. Perfect for pre ballet.
It was clear that they did not have enough waiters working. It took fifteen minutes to even get our water filled. We ended up having to go straight to the bar for drinks bypassing the server that told us "nothing on the menu was Gluten Free"
Great venue. The food is terrible
Amazing food. Great atmosphere. We can’t wait to come back!
Fabulous experience. Great staff and delicious food. Highly recommend checking this place out.
We had a 8:30pm reservation but didn’t get our food until 10 pm. The restaurant was hosting a large group, so the staff and kitchen were extremely occupied. The decision to take additional reservations like our table was surely poor and inappropriate. Food was good but the service isn’t up to the standard.
We had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner. The food was amazing! The service was fantastic. We would definitely recommend to visit and will be returning in the future.
1hour15munutes later still no food
Went to the bar myself for drinks
When we were about to leave the appetizer came out, wrong!
I wanted to love it
Everyone e else’s food looked sooo good:(
Drag brunch was lots of fun and food was delicious as well. Short rib hash, crab cake and French toast were our favorites
It was very disappointing. We were not greeted at the door. They were out of some food. The calamari was 90% bread. We ordered the pasta with marinara and they ran out of sauce but served it anyway without the sauce. The only sauces they could offer was cream . It was one hour after we got our appetizers that we got our food.
We enjoyed our first drag brunch at Cru! Great food, can recommend the eggs benny, french toast and bottomless drinks. Drag performance was spectacular.
Such an amazing little place! It was nice to get off the main drag and enjoy a brunch drag show. The food was amazing!!!! I recommend the smoked Salmon Benny and the hasbrowns. Chef Marlon was interacting with the guests and walking around and he was super approachable!
The drag show was lovely as well. The ladies were very entertaining and the make up and costumes were sooooo good. Great show! Only thing I would change next time is sit inside as we sat in the courtyard and I felt we missed out on some of the things going on inside, drag show wise. Though the ladies would come out to the court yard near the end of the song.
Best birthday ever!!!!
Cool, little hidden jewel. Great ambiance, service and fabulous food. Little off the beaten path but well worth the journey to get there. Very glad a friend recommended this place. We shall return on our next visit to NOLA.
The drag brunch on Sunday was so much fun! The ladies were all fabulous and made the three separate tables celebrating birthdays all feel special. The house punch was delightful and love the mix and match bottomless cocktail options. Service was superb (even got a tour of the property from the chef himself!). Also, the food was scrumptious. I got the Short Rib hash and it had out of this world flavor! Can't wait to go back for another show or to simply dine out. Wonderful courtyard and bars and dining areas too!!!
Food was great but the dinner portion was small compared to the appetizers, a lil more potatoes and vegetables would have filled plate. Tuna tartare was very good as well as the Grouper. Desserts were sinful.
I took my wife on a date.
Excellent food and service.
Fun day with friends
