My son, a student at Chico State, recommended this spot. I expected a dive or bar food at best. What a great surprise! This was the best meal we had during our week-long trip from Washington to California and back. I ordered the Chicken Picatta (sp) and it was beautifully prepared. Two in our party had the seared Ahi and... More

From the moment that you hand your keys to the valet, to park your car, the expectation is that it's going to be special. Then you take the elevator up to the restaurant and the hostess greets you, but so does the noise, it is not quiet, far from it. However, after we were seated away from the bar, it... More

Crush has one of the best happy hours in town. It is geared more for adults in this college town. If you like martinis, order a lemon drop and add a pizza for the happy hour food menu. You can make a meal out of it.

I was taken to Crush on my birthday with my family , including two small children, last night. What a wonderful experience. Our waiter, Joshua was very attentive and particularly helpful in serving the children promptly and making sure they had no opportunity to become restless. Everyone enjoyed their food, my husband's short rib in red wine was declared excellent... More

My second experience at Crush was just as good as the first. We were there for drinks only and we had the artichoke for our appie. It was better than average and the dipping sauce was great. I love the way the bar area is set up, the seating is comfy and very chic. No one could be disappointed here.

With the college students on a Friday night, it's way too noisey. I don't like to yell at my husband to talk to him. We had the Tuna Tartar. It was bland. We also tried one of their pizzas. It was a little undone in the center. Maybe we cought them on a bad night, but we won't be going... More

I really like this restaurant. Food is delicious and people is really nice. I love the crush bruschetta; mozarella with balsamic and tomato. It is really special, very well prepared and the presentation is beautiful. For entree, the halibut or the linguini with clams are my favorites. I highly recommend Crush.

The service was erratic and the food was nothing to write home about. It's also very noisy, to the point where it was hard to have a conversation.
