Frankly, we were just hungry and looking for a place to get some food. Crush was a pleasant place to have some pasta and a glass of wine. Didn't blow me away but I'd come here again, for sure!

Very awesome food and a pleasant dark wood vibe. We went on a Sunday evening and ordered blood orange margaritas. Our starters were seared scallops on spaghetti squash, and bruschetta with burrata, balsamic reduction and peeled whole baby tomatoes. For entrees, build-your-own pasta dishes were angel hair pasta, seared scallops and asparagus; and angel hair with pomodoro sauce and mushrooms.... More

Crush is a great restaurant! Conveniently located on PCH in Beautiful Solana Bch. They have "happy hour" every day 3-6, that's amazing! The bar is open, lots of great choices... We had the grilled artichoke & calamari friti - delicious! Also had a Fiji salad w/oak grilled chicken...all generous portions. This is an Italian restaurant with wonderful options. Their waiters...

I know this is in an expensive area but $27 for chicken parm is a bit much, in my opinion. The staff was great and food was outstanding. Everyone at our large table was very happy with their food and we had a wide variety of choices.

We are summer residents of Solana Beach. Last year we really enjoyed this restaurant. After a reno the previous year, there was an enthusiastic manager who was holding wine tastings, walking around talking to the patrons and making people feel welcome. This year, we went in for dinner, sat in the bar and the place was empty and void of... More

It took forever for the food to come out. All we ordered was a pizza, two salads, and plain pasta with grilled chicken. We had to wait over an hour for our food to come out during a non-peak time. The chicken on the pasta was cold and straight from the freezer bag. By far our worst dining experience of... More

Good food, fair prices, average service. Sit outside on the mini-patio on a cool summer evening. The bolognese is excellent as are most of the veal dishes.

We have eaten here a few times including tonight and have always had a consistent experience. Friendly staff, good food and a good vibe. As a picky group, our waiter was accommodating and got all of our requests perfect. The baby kale salad is my favorite dish, a must try!!!

If you come in not wearing fancy clothes during the day get ready to be treated strangely. Their lemon drops are terrible. I mean they are not good at all. The gelato was very good.

Food was just okay. We had eggplant parm, chicken parm n personnel pizzas. All in all it was a fun night as we celebrated a birthday. Portion size was good n pizza was good having a thin crust n a variety to choose from
