Excellent all around . I’d be hard pressed to find anything bad. Nice selection of wine, excellent Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand that cost less than Kim Crawford, pleasant staff and amazing maple pork dinner. Suggestion would be a broader menu, snd aside from the name crew? Cru? Crux? All was great!

Such a welcoming place, and everything was delicious. We had the fondue, braised pork, and the duck. The duck was especially good. I'd have a hard time ordering anything next time we're here.

Very friendly service. Excellent and creative cuisine. The Vermont fondu was especially good, as was the mushroom puffed pastry. Unique and pleasant ambience.

My wife and I recently had dinner and we split two entree's. We ordered the Hand made pasta fettuccini and the VT Maple & Molasses Braised Pork. Both dishes were excellent. With out a doubt, the Braised Pork was I best I've had. We will definitely be returning to this place!!

We've been to Crux for dinners on two occasions and on both we had wonderful experiences. We at both times in the main dining room served first by Amy and second by Donna. The food was better than we had imagined the first time and we returned to find out if that had been a fluke. It had not. The second time around was just as good in terms of food service and ambiance. We're somewhat saddened by the fact that the restaurant will close in March for revitalization but, were reassured that what is planned will make for even more enjoyable dining experiences. We look forward to our next times. Thank you for excellence in dining experience.

Cruz was a great find in Killington. The beet salad and duck was outstanding. My son loved his pork sandwich. The restaurant is brand new and beautiful inside. I would definitely recommend dinner or a drink at the bar.

We had a very nice meal at Crux. I would recommend crustier bread with the fondue appetizer and more bread and apples for dipping. Our entrees were excellent. The lighting could be a bit lower with candles on the tables to improve overall ambience. We weren’t fans of the TV in the dining room area.

Very good food and service, excellent cocktails. Average wine list but it fits the customer base. Way, way noisy with loud people and virtually no wall or ceiling materials that absorb sound.

Everyone in our small group found the appetizers and entrees to be exceptional. They are a fussy group about quality and taste and were not disappointed in their first time visit. The person who served us was efficient and friendly, made good suggestions and did not rush us.

The food was delicious! rolls with maple butter and cheese fondue are highly recommended. mushroom puff was tasty, but small. Salmon on grilled Caesar was really well done - salmon very moist. Risotto was really good, and the maple creme brulee was excellent. Really pleased with the food and the sense of humour of the staff. It was a bit pricey, and one of our party of 5 did not get what she ordered ... not sure what happened there. would definitely recommend giving Crux a try!

Note: Crux will be renovating the interior decor in Spring 2019, which is needed to create better ambiance. The food overall was fresh, delicious and savory and the service was terrific. Great farm to table restaurant. Welcome to Killington!

Had dinner here on a Saturday night after a day of skiing. The food was good, especially the risotto. The wine list was very good, including wines by the glass from the Loire. However, the timing of the plates out of the kitchen needs improvement. Our first two courses were delivered at the same time, and our third course came out before we were finished with our second course. Consequently, we were done with dinner in 45 minutes, which is not what we prefer for dinner on Saturday night. I think if the timing issue is ironed out, I would return.

Great overall experience , from walking through the front door we were met by one of the owners who told the history of the company. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was great and portions were large. Will be going back soon, thanks for a great evening

We greatly enjoyed our dinner at Crux. Good selection on the menu (including several vegetarian options), generous sized portions and a comfortable, attractive dining area. The food was served nice and hot and my water glass was always full. Very happy that they take reservations - so few Killington restaurants do.

We enjoyed our dinner out on MLK weekend with a party of 9! (5 kids ranging in age from 8-16, and 4 adults). We all loved our meals. The service was fantastic and the food delicious. It's difficult for me personally to eat out due to dairy, gluten, etc. intolerances. It's usually stressful for me, yet the staff at Crux made it no problem and ensured nothing was cross contaminated.

We will definitely go back. Love love love the fresh ingredients and the ability to please diners of all ages. :)

We would definitely return. The food was great. The soup was delicious but was borderline cool. We made reservations for two for dinner but we’re seated by the fire in the bar area. It’s was warm but the “table” was more a place to stand and have drinks. It was very narrow and couldn’t hold two plates across from another. I’d like to sit near the fireplace but this did not make for a comfortable dining experience.
