  • My Birthday dinner.... crushed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We checked in about 15 min. before 7:30 reservation. We were told it would be a few minutes,so we went to the bar for a drink. We were told they would come and get us in a few minutes.After 20 min. my husband went out to see what was the problem. Told not ready yet... Finally, we were seated 45 min after reservations. I ordered a glass of wine from the menu...then told they were phasing out the wine on that list..need to pick one from the wine list instead.Dinner was okay...not great for a New York steak. I had to remind the waiter it was my birthday. He later returned with a ice cream dessert..now that was good.

    We did not know much about Ukiah. To find such a fine restaurant next door to the Hotel was great. The food was excellent, the service friendly and prompt and the price for a Steak House a real bargain.

    Food here was very good, salad bar also had quite a variety and the service was excellent. They have two bars in this establishment, a sports bar, which was fairly low key and a bar in the restaurant. Don't know if this happens every night but, there were some pretty intoxicated and rowdy people in the restaurant bar that night. Our kids were definitely educated on how alcohol can severely impair good judgment!!!

    The girl in training was just OK but the young man who was helping did a excellent job. He seemed to be a little more aware of what was going on around him. I feel he would be a great asset to the restaurant as a waiter.

    First time here. We came at 8:30 PM when things seem to have quieted down. There were a decent number of wait staff wandering around but we had a difficult time finding anyone to serve us. Our waitress didn't come to the table for 20 minutes although another waitress took our orders (but looked uncomfortable about it). Food was just decent and took a very long time to come with tables that were seated much later being served first. Agree with the other review that the service is "surreal". It is a shame because the place has a nice ambience.

    I walked in and the setting was amazing was cool and quite. I didn't have to yell over my company to talk. The service was great we got exactly what we wanted on time. Except you didn't have calzones or cheese cake witch is what we wanted. The salad bar was great and yummy. I would recommend this for a special occasion and the bar area all the time.

    30 minutes late to be seated (reservation was at 7:30, seated at 8:00). Management appeared disorganized, very inefficient through-put. Service spotty, hard to get anyone's attention. Too much hustle-bustle and we get lost in the shuffle. Food was well prepared and quality was good. The total experience could use some work.

    The food at Crush is always good. We went for Mother's Day brunch and the waiter was nice. However, it appears that you are rushed and I'd heard that before. We were still chewing our food when the waiter asks if we want dessert. We weren't interested and received the check immediately. A waiter noticed the people across from us leaving and just stood there to start cleaning the table. Also feels like being rushed.

    We have enjoyed several trips to Crush. Some of our favorites are the, House made pasta. Filet, LOBSTER Tails and the Salad Bar for sure. Try a, "One Night Stand", from the cocktail menu. This place is also awesome for lunch. Rotisserie Chicken Nachos are off the hook and The veggie burger is yummO. Ask for Valerie to serve you, as her professionalism is stellar.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    Went to crush expecting top notch service-the server got a two dollar tip on an 85.00 bill. Managed to forget part of our order, was inattentive, my wife had to go to the bar to refill her water glass-water served tepid, no ice, no lemon until requested. The menu was Ala Cart, expensive. I had the 16oz Rib eye,which was tasty, cook well, but not as tender as the price warranted. Myh wife had the chicken Alfrado, which she stated was very good. For desert, we had the Creme Brulet, not the best, but pretty good. the cream spinach with bacon. It had a very distinct overtone of bacon grease. The table we were seated at was at the end of the built in tables, like an afterthought. We felt we had been dumped into a hole and ignored.

    I was very pleased with everything besides ware we were seated. I didn't make reservations to be seated in the back alley way. I could understand if I was a walk in with no reservation but not for actually making a reservation. Was my dates first time there. Was disappointed he didn't get the full true experience of the restaurant.

    We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Everything tasted very good, we all cleaned our plates. We were very unhappy with the waitress. She was very distracted and didn't seem to want to be there. We had to ask three times for drinks and bread, and all five of us got our dinners at different times- like even 5-7 minutes apart... A pity., Because my husband accidentally accidentally over tipped her outrageously.

    Had to change thanksgiving plans. Luckily not because of a disaster in the kitchen, but rather an unexpected arrival. I was able to make a reservation and walk right in. It was a prix fixe menu (turkey, two types of mashed potatoes, stuffing muffin, gravy), with choice of salad and desert. Fabulous meal. So thankful those folks were working!

    We came in for an early dinner, so the restaurant was not busy or noisy - perfect for us. The rib-eye steaks were cooked as ordered and tasted wonderful. Service was excellent. The menu is on the pricey side - dinner came with 'pureed potatoes', we upgraded to a baked potato. All other sides, salads, etc. are extra.

    We wanted to splurge a bit and decided to go to Ukiah's Crush Restaurant. Being in the Winery business, this was one of the 1st nights that my Husband did not have to work into the very late night. Everything was perfect, even for my husband (who is a perfectionist). We always have and will keep recommending Crush as the place to go.
