    We loved the Shrimp Risotto! There was a good selection of choices for an almost vegetarian who has trouble with wheat products (a.k.a. fussy eater). The menu is smaller portions designed to share, so keep that in mind when reviewing the cost. The wine & beer selection was decent but a bit pricey. Our server could have been more attentive but the food came out quickly and was quite yummy. I found it a bit dark and cavernish.

    To say I was disappointed in the service we received at Crush would be an understatement. The food was outstanding & I even told the server that but they didn't care. We received rude & rushed service the entire meal. The menu is small & the portion sizes much different than most places in Vegas & the server explained that to us in such a fast pace that we felt rushed. Since we didn't place a drink order immediately we felt that we were not as important as others & as soon as we said we were not interested in dessert we were given our check immediately & in haste by the server, like our bill wasn't high enough for their liking.I'm typically a very good tipper but this time it was not warranted, which was a shame because the food was great.

    We went to see chef Bill DeMarco's new restaurant based on our last experience at La Cave. We expected a lot, but we were blown away by the food. We just told the waiter to bring us "whatever" the chef recommends and then Billy came out and "Made it Rain" incredible food. Everything that came out was better than the last amazing dish. The fish was incredible. Dessert was sinfully good. Do yourself a favor and eat here. I'm getting excited just writings this review. Wow!

    The risotto was over infused, the management was snobby, the waitress was rushed. There was one waitress or helper who was on watch and was so great, wish I knew her name. When you are in Las Vegas one can get exceptional food & drinks anywhere except here....we were crushed at the serve, food, drinks...most of all what they charged for bad tapas plates!

    We had just enough time for dinner before a show and we like small plates. Excellent presentation, not too many things at once, lemongrass and a little curry on the green beans. Great wine list with no pressure to buy anything out of our price range.

    A fun nearly 2 hour visit to Crush prior to the Eagles concert. The sausage flat bread and sea bass were both excellent as were the Caesar's and Arugula salads. All menu items are designed for small plate service but were ample. We were promptly seated in a very nice room and greeted by wait staff. There were long pauses between visits by the wait staff and then we were visited by 3 different wait staff during the course of the evening. In short, we are interested in not only excellent food by timely, attentive, and friendly service. The restaurant is fun and noisy. We really did enjoy communicating with our neighboring diners. Will we go back? Very likely.

    It's Ok. The service is very good. Prices are what you would expect but I was not impressed with the food. Everything we had: sea bass, shrimp risotto, frites and salads was good, it was just nothing notable. There were some surprising flavor combination that were welcomed like in the shrimp risotto but still overall not particularly exciting.

    A group of five of us chose Crush out of so many great options in Las Vegas, and while the atmosphere and the food were very good, I was a bit disappointed in the service and the experience. We had to wait for quite awhile for our server, and when she arrived, there was no general welcome or explanation of the restaurant concept. We had read that the food was tapas-style, so I would have expected recommendations for our server about how much to order and what foods are best for sharing. Our server was very pleasant, but only offered the bare minimum which was a bit disappointing. When there are SO many great restaurants to chose from in Las Vegas, I want the whole experience along with the delicious food (and delicious it was).

    We sat down at our table and ordered drinks. After about 10 minutes still no drinks. We placed out food order. 10 more minutes...no drinks. We actually got out before our drinks. After we ate I wanted another drink and had to go to the bar because our waitress was nowhere to be found. We wanted dessert so I had to go to the front and ask the host for help! Crazy!!!!

    We were seated by the kitchen which was noisy and busy, too busy. The couple next to us left but we stayed because we were just having their small plates and then go gamble. The service was slow even though we were where they were running back and forth from the kitchen. The food was good so if you go just make sure you are not in the back room near the kitchen.

    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.
