Worth the wait

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... read 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...

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
