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

excellent staff and great selection of wines. Atmosphere is great for an intimate date or having dinner with friends. Very attentive wait staff and truly amazing food. Start with one of their wine flights and order a bunch of small plates for a memorable dinner.

We had a very pleasant evening with old friends. Their wine and beer selection was nice. We were there midweek and had the place to our selves. Their salads were great! We all had different pasta dishes,all were delicious. The food felt like it was made just for you. We shared a dessert. This place could be loud if busy.... More

We found the some of the meals a little pricey and ended up ordering a couple of appetizers each. Actually, it worked out just fine for us. These small plates are wonderful and some are very creative. The mini steak was outstanding and the bacon wrapped dates proved to be a great combination. The wine list is extensive, though I...

A server from a nearby restaurant (which we loved) recommended Crush. Our whole dinner consisted of the small plate offerings which were delicious and filling. Our favorites: olive mix, cheese plate, steak, beets. We did have room for dessert, thank goodness. Eat here!!! Our only problem was it was sooo dark.

We visited Crush (actually, we were on the other side, in The Kitchen Bar) before we headed to ZINC for dinner, and it was my first time visiting Crush/Kitchen Bar and I LOVED it! The Surf & Turf roll was PHENOMENAL, probably the best sushi I've ever had. I HIGHLY suggest a visit to Crush Winebar (and the Kitchen Bar... More

The local wineries don't serve beer, so if you are with people who don't drink wine they have a great beer selection. We sat on the Italian side and got two different specials. Mine was listed as smokey but instead it was spicey. It was delicious but It did not go at all with the wine I had because of... More

The Crush Winebar has 2 sections with 2 separate menus (and separate billing). The right side is a bar with Asian fusion cuisine. We tried the pot stickers, and they were perfect; the sauce that was served with them was very spicy and tasty. Our table was ready right away, and we moved over to the left side of the... More
