I had been dreaming of the Kale Salad from the time I got on the plan! Service is excellent! Food is super delicious and prices are reasonable. We all enjoyed our dinner. Gluten free pizza was a hit with our boss!

My husband and I ordered pasta the evening we were there. Being from Chicago we consider ourselves snob when it comes to authentic Italian food. We were not disappointed, our waiter even suggested a different pasta shape that would compliment the Bolognese sauce...he was correct. Love this place !!!

Spend a great New Year's Eve here, music a bit draggy, food average staff had their own priorities. Nevertheless we all had a really good evening and everyone was very friendly, hats, poppers, bazookers all on the house created a good atmosphere. I would actually recommend this for an occasion.

We stopped for dinner on Christmas Eve and were very kindly greeted and seated promptly, even without a reservation. I enjoyed the grilled artichoke starter, followed by the chicken piccata for my entree. Both were excellent, as was the food enjoyed by my family. The service was warm, inviting, and impeccable. I will definitely return to Crush.

Went there for a bottle of wine and dessert at the bar. Place was pretty empty (Wed night) but still had a great atmosphere.

Wish we could have gone away, but in town to see a play and timing did not allow us to find another restaurant. We eat at a lot of Italian restaurants, but this place takes the prize for most expensive entrees, appetizers and wine. Now, having gotten that off my chest, interior is nice & upscale, service good (not great)... More

We've been going to Crush for a few years. Several months ago the owners decided their food was worthy of "New York" pricing while offering nothing additional for the added cost. While their food is good a Pizza or Burger should not cost over $20 - it's not that good. Just know that you need to be prepared to spend... More
