Bellevue >Grand Cru Mixologie Lounge
Skip the drinks, go for happy hour &. Skip the drinks which are horrible and are served up by the owner with the worst attitude I've ever encountered in a bar. Perhaps the happy hour prices on wine are good but I can't support a business run by someone with such a disdain for her clients and an absolute need to feel better than everyone else.
I like this place!. Love the variety of their wines and it is a fun atmosphere.
Cool Bar in Bellevue. Stopped by the other day and had drinks and a bit to eat with the wife. Good stuff. I liked the food and drinks. Service was good and the place looks cool inside. As Arnold would say, "I'll be back."
Good Ambience, Good Wine -- That's It!.
I had wanted to try this establishment for about a year now and last night my wife and I decided to forgo our traditional Bellevue restaurants we frequent on Saturday nights and try this place out.
The wine bars we have frequented in the past have all been about providing the patron with a warm, inviting, environment with a knowledgeable, friendly staff to help you enjoy the good wines and food they have to offer.
Our first clue should have been when we walked in the door to the VERY loud music. If we could barely hear the hostess (also our server) asking us where we would like to sit, how were we ever going to carry on a conversation with each other while we sampled flights? Don't get me wrong, the music was good, just not the right venue to be playing it in. Right then we should have walked out but unfortunately we did not.
They had three televisions on showing football games (in a wine bar?) but in this case it happened to be a good thing because we couldn't carry on a conversation, so at least it gave us something to do while we sat there.
Regardless that our server could tell us nothing about the two separate flights we were interested in ordering, we ordered them anyway. Expecting but not receiving a staple to clean the palette in between flights, we asked for something in the way of crackers or bread and she brought us a cracker with rosemary in it, a flavor that interfered with the tasting of the wine but we let it pass.
All in all, the wines were very good, the restaurant had great ambience (setting aside the loud music), the food was average, our service was average (do they know to look for an empty water glass?).
We too had to correct the bill because one plate was at the happy hour price and the other was not -- it took forever to correct and they couldn't get the right price entered so they ended up charging us $2.00 less.
Overall, very disappointing. I hope they can make it.
I guess we'll stick with Purple.
Amazing food & super helpful.
I went to Grand Cru last night for a wine tasting event and was pleasantly surprised. A friend brought me along, I had not heard about the restaurant previously and I had a great time. Everyone was very knowledgeable about the wine being featured as well as everything on the menu. The lobster ravioli & mac n cheese were to die for and the bottle of wine we selected for dinner was fantastic.
I also signed up for their wine club because I know I'll be coming back again. What a lovely space just off the beaten path in Bellevue.
Thank you so much for coming to Grand Cru Wine Bar. We are so pleased that you had a wonderful time and that you took time out of your day to post it. Look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
Great wine - great food - great ambiance.
I went to a wine tasting event here right after Grand Cru opened, and have to say I was impressed!
Not just by the wine & food, but after talking a little more in depth with the owners who were here during this event, the whole concept of what they have to offer.
This isn't just a place to come and have a glass of wine. Whether you are new to the land of vino or a seasoned connoisseur, there are many great classes and groups you can become part of.
I had such a great time at this event. I met new people and learned more about wine. They have a great atmosphere here for socializing.
And to top it off the food was delish too! I would definitely recommend trying this place out!
We at Grand Cru Wine Bar and Shop would like to thank you for your continued support. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to write a great review about your recent visit. Thank you!
Sorely disappointed. I had high expectations going in knowing one of the wine experts. Unfortunately, it was the oddest experience. It was a Friday night and noone was in there, there isn't much of a food menu, the wine flights didn't come with any info - and the server messed up the order when she served the opposite side of the table (got her right and left mixed up). Not impressed.
