Cru Gastro Lounge will finally be reopening on Friday June 12!

We are excited to announce that we have hired our new Executive Chef Benjamin Crowe!

Chef Crowe has put together a new menu with all new recipes!

We will not be accepting reservations or call-aheads.

Cru will be observing the Covid -19 standards set forth by the state of Ohio. We will have very limited seating due to the social distancing.

We look forward seeing you back at Cru soon!

Cru Gastro Lounge


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, hand tossed, hand made dough pizza and some very unique casual plates with dynamic flavors. Click the menu button on the left to get the taste buds watering…..We still serve 20 wines by the glass, along with 26 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. One important feature is that we no longer have a corkage fee!


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

Please be aware that Cru 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!
