    We saw the menu online and were intrigued to see if they could really pull those dishes off. THEY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS! Gnocchi is a hard texture to perfect - it was the best I have ever had and the braised short ribs - there are not enough words to describe how it melted in my mouth. Kale salad was delightful and flavorful - Dessert was also amazing. We came again the second night to try more dishes and were equally impressed. Staff was lovely and attentive to detail during both visits..we will be back every time we come to Vegas...

    Went here as a spur of the moment thing as my girlfriend and I were hungry before going to see KA. Crush was one of the few restaurants that had openings at that time and I'm really surprised they had any availability after eating there. The service was exceptional and the food was amazing. I don't know how this place is not booked out days in advance.

    We made a reservation and was seated immediately upon arrival. Food and service was great. Ordered the angus sliders for appetizers and they very fresh and delicious. For the entree we ordered the large ribeye (28oz), with a huge bone that extended at least 10 inches out side the meat, to split with the creamy spinach and glazed carrots. Overall, the meal was great just thought the ribeye could have been larger considering the price. Would recommend and will probably visits again.

    The date artichoke pizza and the ricotta gnocchi were standouts in flavor. The Nutella Squeeze (ice cream sandwich with chocolate whipped cream, nutella cream and caramelized hazelnut) wasn't big on the Nutella flavor but made for a delicious dessert. The restaurant was too dark and it was hard to see the food. Overall, the food was decent, I'd like to try more dishes, but the ones I had other than those mentioned were just okay.

    When we first arrived the hostess gave us a less than warm welcome barely making any eye contact. Our waiter wasn't very attentive, and the "Sunday special" was also less than satisfying, and in my opinion way overpriced. I don't mind an expensive meal as long as it's satisfying and I don't feel like I paid for what I got.

    If you are looking for a pretentious atmosphere, you got it. We had a reservation and got right in, which was nice. Took a while for anyone to take our drink order. The food was good, but a bit stingy for the prices. The shrimp risotto had a whole 3 shrimp in it. There was only one women's restroom, so we had to wait at times in a line. And it was pretty loud overall. Food was pretty tasty. Water glass stayed full. Had better meals elsewhere, however. Wouldn't go back.

    We were late due finding restaurant and traffic.Our table was given to someone else, without even checking with us. We reserve to experience this place a month in advance. Nancy front desk hostess was rude and had bad attitude, like she owns the restaurant. Maricio was running around, prettending like he was working hard, or hardly working.We saw plenty of empty tables, but had to wait additional 30min before the concert.Luck of consideration for customers. Food was alright, but won't be back.Wouldnot reccomend.

    Was visiting Vegas to celebrate my birthday. Was able to make a reservation for 7 people here. The service and speed to get are food was very timely. The food was really good and was presented in very visually appealing way. It made our dinner very special. And they gave us a birthday dessert to share on the house! Would definitely go back next time I'm Vegas.

    Always creative cocktails to match the menu that makes this a great spot to grab a nite before or after the show. Try and get the low table at the bar that seats 8 for a fun time w your group. Gnocchi w shirt ribs a must try small plate. Pizza/flatbreads just the right size to get some energy back after a show and before hitting the tables or club.

    Worth the walk through the behemoth that is the MGM. Go for the hand crafted cocktails, scallop benny, and kale salad with mushroom vinaigrette - stay for the nutella-dessert-that-will-change-your-life. Relaxing, upscale ambiance. Unique music. Pretty people in a pretty place, with crave-worthy dishes.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
