Wine bar not a ine bar
Crush is overall very good however, it is named and advertised to be a wine bar with a notable list of wines. However, DO NOT ASK for a taste of a wine for free. They will not allow a taste without payment. They do however, sell you a 3 oz portion to evaluate before you buy. They will also freely tell you that if you order a wine and don't care for it, i.e., don't wish to drink it, you will PAY for it anyway.. This is not MY idea of a Wine Bar. Even Trader Joe's allow a return of a wine if it is unacceptable. Not a friendly atmosphere for wine drinkers. So, if you go, just drink the water, forget the wine, unless you see a bottle that you know beforehand.
By the way, their sister WineBar across the street (Zinc) does permit tastes. Strange!

This was definitely not our first time to Crush and it will definitely not be our last. It's a great place to introduce friends to some of the best and innovative foods the Northcoast of Ohio has to offer.

Overall thoroughly enjoyed
Overall thoroughly enjoyed Crush. Only negative is tables are very close together so much so the gentleman behind me kept hitting my chair. Food was excellent, we ordered a vast selection of the small plates and enjoyed everything. Service was ok, nothing outstanding.

A great venue
We went with a group of friends. We are all from out of town. Best place to eat in Sandusky. The food was amazing and the wine flights very interesting. We were having so much fun, we couldn't believe two hours had passed. Ordered a series of small plates which were creative and tasttey, followed by a couple of pizzas. I can't wait to go back.

We had four different meals and each one was delicious. Sauces were outstanding.

Local spot great for out of towners
My wife and I dined here while on a "stay-cation" and it was a great experience. We noticed quite a few regulars, which to me was a great sign. If the locals come in, it must be good. The food was superb and very reasonably priced. My wife ordered a wine flight which consisted of 3 "large taster glasses" then selected a full glass of her favorite. With beverages, dessert, and tip our total was under $100. For the quality of food served I felt it was appropriately priced. To top it off the service was excellent!

Sandusky Hot Spot
The best place in town for good food and drinks. It's not only a good by Sandusky standards, it's good by any big city standards. Very creative dishes with great ingredients. Highly recommended!

Great dining experience
We had a really nice time at Crush. I like the fact the next time we go we can try the other side of the resturant and experience their Asian style dining. Great choice for anyone!

FOOD AND SERVICE WERE EXCELLENT BUT BAR WAS VERY NOISY

I eat at Crush a fair amount and it is consistently excellent. They have a very interesting menu and the food preparation is fantastic. I usually order one of the features but will occasionally put together three of the small plates to comprise a meal. One piece of advice - if you come in the winter request a table away from the door. It is a single door and the cold air comes in hard. On the other hand they have a nice little patio for outdoor dining in the summer. My favorites are the beer said, the Brussels sprouts, and the fish special

A True Diamond in the Rough
I'm just tickled pink that I found it. Was looking for something that would be special, intimate, and not run of the mill for a dad and his daughter. It was all that to the N(th) degree!

The cheese plate was sad.
The cheese plate was sad. Not enough funky cheese.

Everything is great. I just wish the would do something about the acoustics. When they're busy, it get really loud.

Crush is consistent & delicious!
5 of us dined at Crush this past Sun and we all enjoyed our meals: 2 pastas w/ mushrooms, 1 seafood pasta dish, 1 risotto, and I had the small plate of baby back ribs. The strawberry pecan salad w/ goat cheese and the beet salad were passed around and they were terrific as usual. This restaurant can hold its own anywhere!

Great date night location! I ordered the featured smoke salmon dinner. It was tasty, but there was a lot of oil or butter pooling on the sides of the dish. It makes you really see the amount of fat in the dish-I'd much rather it be disguised so I don't know how bad the dish is for me :) My husband got the steak. It came with a half of a plate of fries and no veggies. Veggies would have been nice, instead of the carb overload. The wine flight was enjoyable. We had a good time and service was great, just wish the food would have been matched the experience. I have been to Crush a few times with my girlfriends and have never been disappointed. Just wish my husband's first dining experience with Crush would have been better.

That's how you will feel after dining at Crush. Nice atmosphere and great food and service. The specials are always a good choice. I had the Eggplant Napoleon. Location is only 2 doors from the State Theatre so it's a super place to dine before a show or concert. Good idea to make a reservation. ENJOY!

Dinner for Two
My wife and I had a dinner here on a Saturday night - made reservations for 8:00pm, walked in at 8:01 and were immediately seated. We enjoyed a fall seasonal vegetable pizza as an appetizer - took more than half home and it was great at the restaurant and left over. We decided to get the scallop entree and the market beef and share them. Both dishes were delish with the market beef portion being huge and the scallops being average. The service wasn't horrible but it wasn't outstanding - our server lacked personality but was mostly attentive. All in all it was an very good dinner and we will be back again.

Used Crush for an introductory recruitment dinner. The table in the back was great for a small group and the food was fabulous. The server did a great job helping me determin appetizer for the group. We will visit them again.

Great venue for Sunday evening quiet meal with friends. Hope they stay open on Sunday's; business has been slow last couple Sunday's there.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expected a little more
Wine great. Olives a salad great. Sirloin was just ok - gamey. Pizza too much cheese and a little greasy. Didn't like crowded tables in narrow spare. Excellent name and decor

Its one of the few places
Its one of the few places we have been that the everything we try is just amazing. One of our favorite places to go

Downtown Sandusky, Ohio is awesome!
Downtown Sandusky is coming alive again after so many years in the dark. We have gorgeous location and historical buildings and now a renaissance.

Was welcomed by Diane as soon as we entered. Excellent service. Great experience. Seated quickly. Quick service. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Pricing relative inexpensive. Look forward to another visit at Crush.

My second trip back did not disappoint. Great food, menu, and wine flights.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our party was seated at our table for about 10 minutes before our waitress even acknowledged us. By that time, we had already decided on both dinner and drinks. The food was incredible. After dinner, we were not asked if we would like another drink or dessert. Our waitress just brought our checks without asking. It gave us the feeling of being pushed out the door. Would definitely go back again, but only because the pizza and burgers are amazing.

I have a "Crush on" this Place
Very reasonably priced menu American bistro style food. Offering both small plates (tapas style) and full entrée we dinner before the symphony just delicious. My partner had pork with a balsamic glaze, I had grilled mahi tacos that were obviously made fresh with a lime garlic aioli. Our waitress was very attentive and the service was excellent.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a treat
Great food great service and good friends, what is needed after a long week! Just a little chill when the front door opened and closed, will ask to sit further back next time.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great meal, as always
We just love Crush. The food is amazing - stand outs to me are the trout pate, thai cucumber salad, crispy duck wings, pierogies, and the pineapple upside down cake. Great drinks too. Will definitely return!

A local favorite and downtown gem!
Perfect wine pours, excellent food presentations, varied menu for a wine bar. Attached is the Kitchen Bar with sushi, also! My favorite place in Sandusky!
