“Great for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

The daily special salads and quiches are always good, and the regular panini are good as well. Nice place to chat with friends over a glass of wine or ice tea or coffee. You are likely to run into friends here. I don't know how the tiny kitchen keeps turning out such superior food, but it does. There is not much space between tables in this small dining area, but nobody seems to mind,

Stopped here for lunch. Ordered the Crab-L-T from the menu. Food was good. Service was also prompt and professional.

“Fantastic Service and Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Coming from an area with a plethora of food choices, my family was struggling to find a great place to eat. I have to say, First Crush is really great food, period. The food is fresh, the service is spectacular, and the atmosphere is fun. It can get a bit loud, as mentioned in other reviews, but nothing compared to some larger city restaurants. We eat here frequently, and plan to continue to do so.

“Cozy, relaxing go-to bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is one of the two restaurants in the area (the other is 1844 House) that we frequent. We would go out more, but there aren't many choices if you want nice food in the Canton-Potsdam area. We've been going here for many years now--since it opened nearly 10 years ago! Good choices for eating lightly or having a multi-course meal with dessert. Staff are always friendly and professional. We always leave smiling.

“Great food, nice people but a bit noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This restaurant serves excellent food for lunch and dinner, well prepared and served. Wait staff are helpful and efficient. The space is small however, and the hard surfaces make it a rather noisy space, making conversation difficult at times...
