Cobb roll sushi ordered and very good and flavorful. One of the better rolls I've had there. Little overpriced at 16.00 My wife ordered sangria, tasted like watered down wine, she only drank 1/3. Wife and I ordered the filet. Both were cooked perfect very very tender, but had no seasoning, no salt. Very bland. Potatoes and veggies that came with it were very small, couple crispy green beans is not a veggie. For the price of 2 filets, 1 sushi roll, 1 sangria and 1 beer for 113.00 before tip

Always GREAT at Crush Winebar. Very tasty food and beverages. Had the added bonus of the band "No Wake" performing very pleasant music. Suggest you set a reservation at this finer food restaurant in downtown Sandusky, OH !

Pretty mediocre spot we found here, admittedly last minute on NYE. The cocktails were ok; the appetizers, ok (the fries were so salty we didn’t eat them; the dj wasn’t awful.
Just, ok. We didn’t ask that the fries be comped, though we’d communicated to our server why we didn’t eat them) and they didn’t suggest a replacement or take it off the tab, either.
Just ok.

Would have preferred to have a regular server instead of the bartender because they were too busy to give decent service but everything else was fantastic

Overall, my husband and I left feeling pretty underwhelmed with our dining experience. The restaurant itself was cozy and a cute setting for a holiday date night, which was why we chose it to begin with. But... the restaurant was not busy and our food took an exceptionally long time. Our service was also very poor. We sat for 20 minutes without refills on our drinks and eventually had to get up and track down our server to ask. We did not order traditional entrees, but instead, ordered a handful of appetizers to share. The Oysters, Duck Wings, and Poached Shrimp were very good. We also ended up ordering a couple sushi rolls, which were "just okay." Lastly, when we received our bill, we noticed some Happy Hour pricing... which in turn led to us finding out that our server never presented the menu or specials for that night (Thursday, 12/23).

I would give Crush another chance, with the assumption that our experience was just having an "off night." But for a higher end price point/ambiance, there was a lot left to be desired.

Very fun with the band LEM playing. I ordered sushi and it was very good. My friends ordered the pesto pizza which I tried which was also good. It took a while for a server to come to our table but he was also the bartender and the bar was busy. Very fun and delicious food.
