We eat at this restaurant during Ohio Bike Week. It is a pleasure to enjoy the fine cuisine and not to mention the staff is wonderful. We happen to luck out and eat outside on the patio. WE have the same server, Stephanie. She's super. The Fruit del mar and fish tacos, the wine flight all worth the stop. We... More

This is great restaurant. The sushi is pretty good, but it is all about the wine. I love the different flights. It can get very busy so make reservations!

We came in for some drinks at the bar and appetizers and the bartender wasn't very friendly. I'm not sure if she was having a bad day or what, but regardless we felt unwelcome that night. The food was good, but not extraordinary in my honest opinion. We probably won't be back.

I have had a lot of food from here and I have yet to have a good entree. The appetizers are the best though. We like to go with friends and order a few per person and then share. I'm sure the wait staff hate us for all the dishes but you'd never be able to tell, they smile through... More

Went to Crush on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch early dinner. We were seated right away but that was about the only positive we had with the whole experience. We waited 15 minutes before we even saw our waitress. We ordered a bottle of wine and had to wait another 20 minutes before we even got the bottle... More

We recently ate at this downtown Sandusky restaurant for my birthday and could not have been happier. I had the spinach pasta with salmon and sun-dried tomatoes special which was creamy, rich and well prepared. My husband had the Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli and is still raving about the taste and wants to return. We shared a bottle of wine... More

The original wine bar is outstanding, beautiful and with excellent bartenders making your cocktails and pouring your wine. The new kitchen bar is very nice, too, but I prefer the original side. The small plates are generally very good, but the dinners are never quite as good as we expect when we order. The service is generally good. The atmosphere... More

This place is outstanding! We ate at the kitchenbar this time. I highly recommend the surf and turf sushi roll. We had potstickers and they were also very good. They have a great drink selection, too. This place does not feel like it is in Sandusky. It should be in Cleveland or another big city. I was very impressed with... More

The lack of customer service ruined our experience and we will never go back. I asked if a substitution could be made to accommodate an allergy and was informed by the waitress that this was not an issue. When my food was brought from the kitchen, I confirmed that the substitution was made, and was assured it was fine. My... More

High end cuisine in Sandusky! If you have a taste for the finer things in life, give it a try. It's on the more expensive end, but I've found you get what you pay for. I'm not much into wine (the wife is), but they'll make you a good drink too.
