Love the private table in the back

We had a small group with a fabulous server on the table in the back. Enjoyed several salads, pizza flats, the gnocchi, fresh bread from the oven with imported oils, salmon entre and more. We absolutely loved the wine flights which were very reasonably priced and gave us all some new wines to try... read more

If you're looking for a quiet place to catch up with friends Crush Wine Bar is the place for you! The sushi and Martinis are to die for, and the pineapple upside down cake is to die for! I've been here many times and have NEVER been disappointed.

Right downtown, close to everything. Superb selection of wines, and a wonderful selection of food on the menu. Great place for a get-together, or just stopping in to enjoy a glass of your favorite vino.

Nice variety of small plates and entrees, with rotating/seasonal specials. My wife had a grilled watermelon salad that she was crazy about. I had the beets (served in a bowl with feta cheese) and then brussels sprouts and that was plenty. They have a bottomless bread dip you can order that comes with oil for dipping; fantastic! Had strawberry shortcake... More

Great meal! Fresh, creative entrees- Pasta with good, woody mushrooms and teleggio was fantastic and only $16! The wine flights were fun, the atmosphere upbeat but not too loud, just a wonderful evening!

I was staying in Freemont Ohio and was desperately looking for a decent meal. I looked at several of the local eating establishments and found none too promising. One of the organizers of our conference recommended I go to Crush in Sandusky. It seemed a little far, but well worth the drive. They cook was first rate and he prepared... More

This is a wonderful adult evening date night type of establishment. They have a great wine selection and the food is good. It is best to stick to the tapas style dishes and drink the wine! The staff is very friendly and they have a good knowledge about the wine selection. My wife and I have been here for date... More

Second visit. Tables are a bit crowded (limited space) however food and serdice were very good. I am a bit demanding regarding ingredients disclosure and the server was very knowledgeable and helpful as well as the chef. Looking forward to my next visit!

This jewel owned by the chef of Zinc Brasserie (which has relocated around the corner into a much larger and nicer space) has a variety of small plates that are really scrumptious. There are specials every time we go, all of which have been excellent. The Brussels sprouts are phenomenal, and I have seen patrons order 2 of these side... More
