A Must Visit in Sandusky!

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

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...
