Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent and so was the service. I loved the options available--we were a large group with varying tastes and appetites and there was something for everyone. The drinks were delicious, too. I'd definitely return to Crush."

  • "Excellent service, great menu, and delicious food."

  • "We had a great time at Crush. We went at 5:30 and it was almost empty. The steak was great. Really enjoyed it."

  • "Sort of hidden at the MGM Grand, Crush is well worth looking for. A great small plates menu with terrific variety. We shared the salt & pepper frites with the garlic aioli as an absolutely killer appetizer. Then my wife had the braised short-rib ricotta gnocchi and I had the scallops crudo and shared the lamb meatballs. With the differences in food, we ordered wine by the glass. We have terrific frites at a local brasserie, but each of the other small plates provided us with new preparations of base ingredients that we love. Each was a new, and marvelous, eating experience. Combine the excellent food with the intimate lighting and the privacy of our booth and we had a romantic evening for foodies."

  • "It was beautiful inside and the service was incredible. We had 5 in our party (incl my chef hubby) and we were thrilled with the food. The scallops Benny was a big hit with everyone and the ladies enjoyed the fancy tease cocktail. Would definitely recommend and return!"

  • "This recreated MGM location has a nice ambiance. The food was fresh, yet nothing was extremely remarkable. Each dish seemed to miss the mark in one way or another. The Scallop Benny was nice, yet would've been nicer had the chorizo sausage not been a hockey puck. The flatbread was the only stand out. We had the curry shrimp which was loaded with shrimp and asparagus. Our arugula salad had much to much lemon, we asked for oil and vinegar to cut the taste. Overall it's very convenient for a show with good ambiance, ok service and food."

  • "We met friends there and found it difficult to visit because of the volume of the in house music"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Crush was the perfect choice to meet friends from out of town. The service was wonderful and the food great. The pizza I ordered was a little cold upon reaching the table and the wine list by the glass should definitely include more choices. There is only one for Chardonnay. There is a vegetarian menu and a gluten free menu which is awesome."

  • "I was really looking forward to dining at Crush, but it did not live up to the hype. Our food took a long time to come out, and it didn't all come at once. My Caesar salad came first, and it was delicious except for the pretzel croutons which were impossible to chew. It didn't mind that so much. Then my shrimp risotto came. Only three shrimp! They were fine but the risotto was not good and worst of all cold. I was so hungry by this point that I ate it anyway. My friend's side of broccoli order didn't get put in at first so it came after our main course. It was good but it was strange to eat it last. Everything totally overpriced of course. And lots of staff standing around talking. The best thing about Crush is that it is somewhat quiet."

  • "Thanks to Josh our waiter. He was very knowledgeable and professional. His was very attentive. An asset to your restaurant."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food and experience were so good the first time, we went back the following evening. Uniquely flavorful food. Best arugula salad my wife has ever had."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We were there for Father's Day. We ordered two rounds of small plates and flatbreads for our main meal. There wasn't a bite left. We loved the gnocci, shrimp risotto, curry shrimp flat bread, date and artichoke flat bread, and scallops. The desserts were heavenly and fun to share. It felt loud but we were able to hear everyone at the table."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Crush. We went early before the David Copperfield show at The MGM. We brought our 11 and 9 year old sons and I found it to be very kid friendly. The service was prompt, efficient, and friendly. All of our food was delicious but the shrimp risotto was so amazing that we ordered a second one."

  • "Was 1/4 filled. Quiet. Drinks were not good for the cost. Have had better meals."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It was too dark to read the menu. We were not the only table to need the flashlight app on our phones. The music was loud, rhythmic. The lighting/music is basically night club. The décor is more staid/stolid, at odds with the nightclubiness. Servers forgot two different items for our party of 4; it took a while for one to come back to the table so we could let her know; correction of the omissions took some time. The food made up for the service. Smaller portions than restaurants often have, but that is good. On vacation, I don't want so much that I would want a doggie bag. We had appetizers, entrée, and dessert: all excellent, flavorful, quality ingredients."

  • "the 8oz steak and the chicken pizza were incredible. if we ever come back to the mgm grand we will 100% eat at this restaurant again. we made a reservation 5-6 days in advance and it was all ready and waiting for us. i give crush a 10 outta 10"

  • "We had heard about Crush Through some friends , I believe you Know him , So we deciced to try Crush ' The Service was Execellent We Loved the small plates A terriffic way to try things and share, I think you have the best ceaser salad on the strip, The Gnocci and short riibs Is A great dish, We had a small pizza And saute mushrooms which your waitress had them make for me and my wife had a salad with pershutto pardon my spelling . I will say you folks need to reach the locals your Marketing is falling short here in the burbs, Many of my neighbors had not heard of Crush It's a excellent place for an intermit dinner , We are new to Las Vagas , But we now have a go to place. in Las Vegas"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was very good. The only issue I had regarded the seating, it almost felt like family style seating because the two tables on either side of us were so close."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Went here for a pre-show dinner in Vegas and the food did not disappoint! The sea bass was cooked perfectly (in a steam bag - so cool!) and my friend's steak was "the best of her life." Service was attentive, but not annoying. Lighting is dark for a nice private feel. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food was excellent. We started off with caeser salads that were delicious. My main dish was a NY strip steak that was really good. There is a great beer and wine list. The service was great. The place was full and everyone seemed very satisfied. Next time I am in town I will eat there again"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Very expensive for creative but in the end average food... "
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "The server explained that the dishes are meant to be shared but it wasn't very clear how big the dishes are etc. which caused some confusion when ordering and we ended up not quite ordering enough food. Overall the food was very good and presented well. The desserts were all superb."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "The bar is like a Tapa-Bar with non-Spanish Tapas. Everything has its price and remember you need several items to overcome your hunger."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "It would have been nice to know a coffee and baileys was $15 before we ordered it. $30 for 2 coffee and baileys was a little shocking when we got our cheque. Seeing as how this item wasn't on the menu, I felt like our server could've mentioned it. Other than that, everything was pretty decent."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "our menu choices were limited and the quality was just so -so"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Went with a friend on Friday and got the ricotta gnocchi, filet mignon and sea bass.. All excellent and delicious! The crispy kale that came with the sea bass was amazing. I expected it to be more crowded for a Friday but it wasn't... Felt a little rushed, but other than that everything was awesome."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Food was very good, service was attentive except our waitress failed to ask how our food was which I think is a must for a new restaurant. Restaurant has great potential and we will return."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Nice bar upfront on the main pathway next to the casino. Restaurant is tucked behind the bar area and you would never know that the casino was there. So, that is great if you are looking for a different setting. Good small plate selection and good service. Expensive since you order everything separately. They also set you up with bottled water that they charge $9 for....so be careful there. You can order another glass of wine for that price! "
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We all ordered the filet - it was excellent. And, loved the garden salad wrapped in prosciutto. Our server, Patrick, was wonderful."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We come to Vegas several times a year...and we have officially found our new favorite place (and we have been to most in Vegas) My husband had the tomahawk rib eye, and he was in heaven. Said it is the best he has ever had. I had the chicken and it was so unique and equally delicious...and you GOTTA try the salt and pepper frites"

  • "Menu portions were great size and reasonable price. Loved the craft beers."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The atmosphere was nice, seems like a trendy place. Small plate concept great for sharing. Nice selection of wines and a sommelier on staff to assist with recommendations. We shared the Scallops Benny, Shrimp Risotto and Wild Mushroom Pizza. All were very good."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I booked a table for eight girls (for a bachelorette dinner) and Crush was fantastic and super flexible for our larger party. Better yet, the food was outstanding. I'd highly recommend the mixed green salad and the date and artichoke pizza."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The service was slow, the drinks were poorly mixed and the food was mediocre."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Every one of our dishes were terrible except the mash potatoes."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Even for Vegas the wine was a bit overpriced and the cocktails skimpy. My husband and I decided to split the 32 ounce braised short rib with a pepper crust. It came out looking like a charred chunk of wood and didn't taste any better. It was extremely dry and flavorless. The kale salad dressing was very vinegar-y, as was the dressing or glaze on the roasted cauliflower. He had the peasant soup which was good- full of a mild sausage and kale. Overall, for what we got we were severely disappointed in the restaurant that was well reviewed in a magazine and had great "curb appeal." I'd definitely recommend other restaurants for this price point."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We were very pleasantly surprised by Crush! Service was excellent from hostess to server to sommelier to server assistant. My dining companion is a vegetarian and the entire staff seemed to have been made aware and easily accommodated her requests. Highly recommend a dinner here!"
