Welcome To Cru Gastro Lounge

Cru Ravioli

Our Menu

Wine + Beer

Cru opened in October 2013, as Oxford, Ohio’s first wine bar. We now have evolved into Cru Gastro Lounge. Our focus is not just on wine and spirits but on culinary delights. Cru Gastro Lounge now offers a great selection of appetizers and Chef Crowe’s unique spin on classic entrees. Click the menu button on the left to get the taste buds watering…..We still serve 20 wines by the glass, along with 20 specialty beers, a variety of vodkas, gins, scotches and a significant array of Kentucky Bourbons.   We also have an extensive wine display throughout the restaurant to satisfy your varietal needs. Which by the way you can purchase to enjoy with your dinner or to take home and all retail (take out wines unopened) will get 20% off the list price.  We call it our “reverse corkage fee” as we never charge a corkage fee!

Cru Gastro Lounge was created by Mike and Michelle Patterson, owners of Patterson’s Café and Paesano’s Pasta House.

We are located in the Stewart Square Shopping Center at 105 W. Spring St, adjacent to Patterson’s Café.

Please be aware that Cru Gastro Lounge does not accept reservations.  We serve on a “first come first serve” basis.

In a wine oriented establishment, table turns tend to be longer than normal restaurant turns.

We encourage all to visit Cru Gastro Lounge.  Please be patient as we would like you to dine at Cru as much as you would like to dine at Cru!

Cru Gastro Lounge hosts events right next door at Patterson’s Café. If you are looking for a venue for your rehearsal dinner, business meeting, family celebration, birthday party, retirement party, graduation party…. We can assist!
