A group of friends reserved the big table in the back for a birthday party. The service at CRUSH was attentive and friendly for our group of 12. The food was hot, delicious and well plated. The sushi fresh and flavorful. It's always a pleasure to eat there and we enjoy the ever changing specials.

Went toCrush Wine with hubby and it was amazing! We got hummus for an appetizer and it was fresh so good. I got a vegetarian dish with pasta and mushrooms it was delish! Hubby got a filet and really liked it. He said it was cooked perfectly.

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!
