“Charming Romantic Bistro with amazing dishes.”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Crush has small plates that have distinctive flavors. Salads are very tasty, my Thai Cucumber salad had just the right zip of tangeiness. The thin crust Pesto pizza was delicious and filling. And the wine selection offered plenty of choices for us red drinkers at a reasonable price. Our waitress also was very helpful in guiding my wife towards a few choices that she absolutely loved. This is a cozy romantic place for couples or girls-night out activities.

“A Great Casual Dining/ Meeting Spot”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

This intimate bar/ restaurant was an easy find for us after having dined at the sister restaurant across the street (same owners). You will not be disappointed with the fare or the wine selections. This place was interesting for us as it was a local hangout where everybody knows everybody (50's style) providing contrast to big city dining. A nice nice place to spend an evening with their tapas and/ or full dinner offerings...all excellent

“A little pricey, but nice”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

It's nice to have this as an option in Sandusky. The wine selection is vast. If you are more of a beer or liquor person, that's okay because they can accommodate you as well. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is swanky. It's a great place to take a date!

“Great place for after work drinks and even fun special occasions.”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

I simply love Crush. Same owner as their more sophisticated sister restaurant (Zinc) accross the street. Slightly more laid back. Food leans more towards tapas style. Small, less expensive plates of really good, cutting edge cuisine. Of course a wine list to die for. This isn't as private and intimate as Zinc but it serves as more of a place to have an enthusiastic celebration with friends and family. The bar are is quite the hang out for the who's who of the town. A great place for amazing food snd wine in a more laid back atmosphere.
