Crush - Chico
A Large ImprovementI dined at Crush roughly a year ago, and found it noisy, extremely hot in the dining area, and lackluster in service. A year later, and they've seemed to get a handle on things. The service was impeccable, friendly, and helpful. The climate-control seemed to be working, and was comfortable inside on a very warm day outside. The wine list had decent variety, if somewhat overpriced for the supermarket-caliber wines offered, and the food was superb. I had the swordfish and my date had a pasta dish with mussels; both were excellent, and the tiramisu dessert was fantastic.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat way to celebrateMy husband and I ate here for our 3rd anniversary and we had a wonderful dinner. We got the bruschetta for an appetizer and the bread was separate from the toppings, and the mozzarella was melted. I had the organic crusted chicken with the gnocci, and my husband had the special, steak, twice baked potato and a house salad. His steak was HUGE-14oz!. Everything was very tasty and full of flavor. The waiter was very helpful, he suggested a wine for me which was paired nicely with my chicken. Since they knew it was our anniversary, they gave us a brownie and ice cream dessert on the house! Even though it was in the 90's, I still should have brought a sweater because the AC was pretty chilly. I cannot wait to go back.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur crush visitOverall a very good experience. Our talble was so loose we couldn't lean on it. We asked for another one but none was available. This took away from our dining experience and such an easy fix should never be overlooked. We will be back whenever we are in town next though and will recommend to our friends.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMKale salad was the bestEaten at crush 3 times but this was the best food. Kale salad was th best I have ever had and I've had a lot.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMCrush 201 ChicoOur entire family loves Crush and we tend to have all family celebrations there. My mom and I had a leisurely Mother's Day dinner celebration on Sunday. Fabulous service, attention to detail, and, as always, great food. We'll be back for many more celebrations.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner, the BruscheetaGreat dinner, the Bruscheeta app. was top notch. I always have a nice time there!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!We dined there for my daughters 21st birthday and couldn't have asked for a better time.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place with very goodGreat place with very good food and lively atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anybody who wants to have a nice dinner out with a varied menu and tasty food. It is a little loud and not super fancy which makes it ok for children. The only thing I was wishing for more was the wine list as it was not as varied as I would have wanted. If they added another 10 bottles of red to the list that would suffice.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMKristy WilceWe all loved our meals. I am on a very restricted diet at the moment and the waiter gladly said they would substitute anything, cook with no oil or butter and allowed me to have a great meal. Choices were plenty, ranging from pasta to salads to fish or meat. I did find the dining room a bit chilly, so would bring a light sweater next time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and FreshWe love Crush. The food is always fresh and delicious. We especially like to go on Tuesday nights when we can order from the special menu and have a large chunk of the price go to support the local Boys and Girls Club. They do a lot of mentoring/training of the kids too. Be sure to have the tempura fried Squash Blossoms when they are in season. Nothing like them.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surprise! Food wasPleasant surprise! Food was delicious - homemade pasta. . . amazing! Busy night and manager went above and beyond to ensure that we were well taken care of and satisfied, not rushed through the evening! We will definitely visit again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for a celebrationA little pricier than a typical night-out restaurant for us, but we were celebrating a special occasion. Crush! filled the bill nicely. Excellent food, even better service. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. We'll definitely be back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to the Crush and it was outstanding. The Easter Special was Prime Rib but went for the Rib-eye steak instead and she had the Crispy Chicken. We shared a Kale salad (also our first) and can honestly say, it was a great meal... didn't even have room for desert. Can highly recommend and will certainly be back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe water feature is great.The water feature is great. We were fortunate to be seated right by it. The food was very good. On a previous visit, Crush had polenta on its menu. This time it was not. The waiter told me not to worry about it and had it prepared for me.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Amazing DinnerI went with my family for my 20th birthday and absolutely loved everything! our server was great and everything was served perfectly on time. We were talking about how much we wanted to go back the whole weekend! Thank you3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness Meeting SuccessGood for a business meeting also.
They handled our party of 10 which grew to 11 beautifully.
All of us enjoyed the food and service.
Four of my colleagues gave me props for finding the Crush.
"Good job, how did you find this?"
Not too amazing until you realize that we were 180 miles from where I live in SF.
I told them I used Open Table for the reservations.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
