“A great find in downtown Anchorage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

We had a very good meal at Crush. The food was savory and had a surprising sophistication. The server was a bit inattentive but that didn't ruin the experience. I would definitely eat here again.

“Great downtown Anchorage wine focused Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is a terrific downtown Anchorage Bistro with a focus on wine/food pairings. Wonderfully creative food is served with smiles in a friendly atmosphere. Chef George created a "double" corn chowder to die for. Desserts are heavenly. Give Crush a try. You won't be disappointed.

“A Welcome Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We walked 5-6 blocks to this restaurant on the recommendation of a Holland America guest services employee at the Anchorage Hilton. We were tired, had no luggage as yet, and didn't want hotel food. CRUSH was just what we needed. Small (seats about 30 inside, and has sidewalk tables if you're so inclined; I never am because I don't want to eat alongside concrete and cars), and a bit loud. Obviously a place younger locals like, and you can see why. The menu was fresh and creative without being twee or precious. I had the stuffed dates and a pork empanada--both beautifully presented and delicious. SO had the crab gratinee and, while at first the serving seemed small, its richness proved it to be the right amount. Very good wines are available by the glass at very reasonable prices for Alaska, and our server, who had an injured foot and was in a bit of pain, nevertheless provided us with good recommendations and took the time to explain the wines and menu items so that we would make the best choices for our tastes. And she hit the mark every time. I wish I could remember her name, because she deserves recognition.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I had the Chicken Focaccia Sandwich. Very tasty. A couple of friends ordered the mac and cheese, only to be told they were out, so don't get too excited about what you order. I usually get pretty annoyed when something like this happens. We ordered around 1:30p, so I would not think we were that late for lunch. Not the fastest service either. But I would go back again and recommend to others. Menu here: http://crushak.com/eat
