Husband and I dropped by and split a bottle of cab here. Very personal service helped us pick out a red we would like. Then we had some kind of chocolate explosion dessert which was very tasty. Thanks Sam for the great experience... We will be back next time we are in town. Good for couples.

Loved the atmosphere, food & service. Tried many small plates & everything was yummy. My only complaint is their wines by the glass choices were limited, thought it should have been better for a place called a "winebar".

Had dinner here based upon recommendations on trip advisor. Very cool, quaint decor and atmosphere. Some outdoor seating in a great little 'alley'. Food was wonderful - great variety of appetizers and entrees. Servers were very personable. Loved it!

I recently visited Crush with a large group who were meeting for drinks and appetizers. We were given a little area in the back of the restaurant to have our gathering. The staff was friendly and kept our wine glasses filled at all times. We had the duck confit and the cheese pizza, cheese plates, and calamari. We went elsewhere... More

We had a small group with a fabulous server on the table in the back. Enjoyed several salads, pizza flats, the gnocchi, fresh bread from the oven with imported oils, salmon entre and more. We absolutely loved the wine flights which were very reasonably priced and gave us all some new wines to try! Loved every minute! Thank you!

If you're looking for a quiet place to catch up with friends Crush Wine Bar is the place for you! The sushi and Martinis are to die for, and the pineapple upside down cake is to die for! I've been here many times and have NEVER been disappointed.

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.

Thank Kath317
