It's always a great time at Crush in Chico, friendly waiters and good service. Unfortunately, Saturday we had a reservation for 8:15 and we weren't seated until about 20 minutes after our reservation. Again, still great friendly service like always it would just be nice to be seated on time when making a reservation.

We were asked to leave our table due to another reservation. We sat down at 7pm and the manager asked us to leave at 8:15. Our bill had just come and we had just put our cash in the folder. So disappointing. Could have been because we had my brother in law who is developmentally disabled. What a shame on their part

The food, drinks & service was great!! When we asked about a refreshing cocktail, our waitress suggested her special creation that will soon be on the menu...it was delicious!! Pasta was yummy & the chocolate crumble dessert was to die for! The only complaint I have is the restroom. It is all the way down in the basement. It was dirty & both soap dispensers were empty! I mentioned this to the host, but there was still no soap in there when we left.

We made a reservation and arrived early. We were seated shortly after arriving even though we were early. They were very busy, but the entire staff remained attentive to service at our table(staying on top of bread, drinks/refills and food). The food was excellent our party of four enjoyed our meals.
The shrimp appetizer was the highlight for me.
We planned to Suprise our brother in law with a birthday dessert, but ended up leaving before the staff could bring it out. The waiter apologized for the kitchen being so busy. We were so stuffed it really didn’t matter to us. Our brother in law enjoyed the halibut special. Great experience overall and we will be back to taste more excellent entrees.

Food preparation and service was excellent. We had bruschetta, with a Mojito and a Moscow mule from the happy hour menu on the outdoor patio to start. We moved to an inside table for dinner. My wife had a Hangar 1 Martini and I had a Pinot Noir from the special menu prior to dinner. The Martini had a very classic look and the Pinot was a excellent selection. The eggplant Parmesan was the best my wife has ever had and she orders it quite often and I consider her the expert. I had the New York pepperoni pizza and added anchovies, my guilty pleasure. The meals were both great and we ended with some to take home. As mentioned above, service was excellent, from the personable hostess who seated us to our server at the table, the staff is on the ball. Water glasses were filled and we really felt like they were knowledgeable and happy to help. The visit to Crush topped off our first visit to Chico.

I had the Lasagna and my wife had the Pasta Special. Both dishes were very tasty and we enjoyed them with our special cocktail drinks. Because St. Patrick's Day was being celebrated that evening, the entire restaurant was noisy and the Wait Staff was very busy.

Our table was too near the door to the outdoor seating area. We had to tolerate continuous cold blasts of air from the outside, where guests should have been wearing parkas. I'd not allow us to be seated in that area again. The rest of the restaraunt seating is generally very comfortable. Just not this night.

We had prime rib and swordfish and the food was tasty. However, the place seems to have an identity crisis. On one hand it is an expensive fine dining menu, on the other hand it has couches and a TV playing sports. I would say it's too expensive to be a good sports bar and it's too loud and casual to be a good fine dining establishment.

I was there for an anniversary with my wife and it was far too loud to have a conversation without raising your voice. I wouldn't go back for something like a romantic dinner. It's probably best for appetizers and creative mixed drinks. Or maybe for pizza?

The service was attentive and they gave us a free dessert to celebrate the anniversary, which we appreciated.

The food was very good but it took 45 minutes for it to arrive to our table. When we inquired about when our food might get to our table the waiter replied "your food will get here when it's ready sir". Not very good for someone who works for tips. Going to be awhile before I go to Crush again.

Just a nice night out with my wife. The chef(s) really kick butt with the quality and presentation of their meals Our selections this evening were the sea bass and chicken picatta. We enjoyed the meals immensley . The house Merlot was on point. My wifes martini was not to her liking, but no fault of the restaraunt. The waiter, Joshua as I recall, was on top of it and after several attempts finally got her a cocktail that she really enjoyed. He went out of his way to make sure she got something that she really liked. I recall it turned out to be a chocolate martini, probably intended as a dessert, but served her well with her meal.
I wish the acoustics could be modified to quiet the place down, but the meals and service favorably blow Crush out of the park. At nearly $85 for two, including a well earned generous tip, it's a bit pricy, but from the size of the crowd, you'd be unlikely to think price to be much of a problem, although it was Saturday night. Strongly recommend.

My husband had an excellent chicken piccata. I had bucatini a la amatriciana and it was delicious, not particularly authentic, but in some ways I liked it better than what I had recently in Rome - more sauce and a bit spicier. Very good house Zinfandel. This is our third time to this restaurant - we pass through Chico about once a year and it is our go-to place.

Where we were seated it was way too cold. And there were other tables available. tables kept being loudly reorganized close to us even though no one had sat there until we left. Food was very good and our waiter was very nice. We left as soon as we were done eating. But we will be back soon and hope for a better visit
