Cru Steakhouse

Cru Steakhouse is located in the Marriott Hotel in Manila. Coming to an expensive restaurant like this, especially one that's inside a hotel, you would expect not just great food but a good dining experience. Although the waiters and waitresses were friendly they did not seem very well trained.

#1 While waiting for our food and drinks to come I took a sip of water and later on realized that there was a fly floating in my glass of water. I wasn't paying attention to what I was drinking so I'm not sure if the fly was already in the water before I took a sip or not. 

Complimentary bread and cheese (left to right: tomato, spinach (?), parmesan)

Baked Oyster Rockefeller & Kataifi Wrapped Jumbo Prawns PHP 1,600
"Tomato cucumber salsa, chili garlic cream"

CRU Caesar PHP 500
(only half a serving is seen because we asked them to split the salad to two)
"Crisp pancetta, garlic herb crouton, parmesan cheese dressing - tossed tableside"

Baked Scallops and Enoki Mushrooms PHP 720
"Creamy garlic chili sauce"

#2 After two follow-ups on my drink, it finally arrived almost an hour after ordering.
Sparkling Strawberry Mimosa PHP 350

Bourbon Baked Salmon PHP 1,300
"Warm potato salad, asian slaw"
I honestly did not like this dish that much and I think it's overpriced.

US Prime Rib Steak PHP 5,200 (900 gm, medium cooked)
"Choice of 5 CRU side dishes, 2 sauces, carved tableside"

The first side dish we ordered was the grilled portabello mushrooms which is seen in the upper right part of the photo.

Second and third side dish:
steamed asparagus, parmesan butter
black truffle risotto (my favorite side dish)

Fourth and fifth side dish:
shredded corn
whipped potato
 I wasn't able to take a photo of the two sauces that we ordered - black pepper and shiraz.

CRU Dessert Sampler PHP 320
"Peach panna cotta tart, warm chocolate cake, Grand Marnier ice cream"

Vanilla Souffle PHP 350
"Raspberry sauce, maple syrup ice cream"
I liked this the most out of the other desserts we ordered. I don't think the ice cream flavor was maple syrup though, it just tasted like vanilla ice cream. 

Crepe Flambe PHP 390
"Selection of fruits with brandy caramel sauce, prepared table-side"

Then just as we were waiting for the bill incident #3 happened when the waitress was struggling to balance a glass of water on a tray and passed my lolo and splashed some water on him.

I understand that the incidents were all accidental but I just wanted to share my experience here. I also want to point out that the staff were all really nice and that they let us order one dessert for free as an apology for the fly incident.
