Amazing as always!!! Go every time we are in Miami!
Great owners, service and food. This is the 2nd time I’ve dine there and I will come back some again. This a spot where you can have business meetings, birthday and any other special occasion(s). The owner was very polite and inviting. This is a 5 star establishment.
Amazing as always! Delicious food with a warm welcome. Bartender was very attentive.
Great food, good service, and the ambiance is enjoyable. I had the shrimp and angle hair pasta and my wife has the eggplant lasagna. We will be back.
Great food, fresh, excellent service.
awesome food huge portions but restaurant is super loud
Excellent as usual, just wish there were a few vegan options.
One of my favorites. Great food and great hospitality. I wish I could eat there every week.
In traffic over an hour from Boca Raton. Worth every minute spent traveling.
Most memorable birthday dinner ever. Fabulous, delightful, fantastic service.
Loved our server Alex and the owner was as wonderful. Dinners, of course, beyond delicious. I could go on and on
But ........just make reservations for a wonderful evening. P.s. ate leftovers next night and it was just as unbelievable. How could that be?
Everthing about this place is outstanding; Setting, food, price, portion size, and service!
Long time fans of the chef going back to Crystal Cafe, our return to Crust met all our expectations. A wonderful menu, amazing food with huge portions, reasonably priced. Run, don’t walk, to this terrific restaurant. You will want to return soon if you do.
Nothing is perfect, and this restaurant is noisier than the average expectable “in” restaurant making conversation among friends a problem. There is an outside option, but the surroundings are only so-so. Still, weather permitting, I would choose outside. Parking is a problem, but they do have adequate valet service. I’d recommend using it.
At first was having problems confirming my sitting reservations, but after receiving phone call from the Owner Mr. Klime Kovaceski, all issues were resolved.
Dinner was amazing and service by Eddie was equally as good.
Definitely would recommend !
Terrific service and food is delicious. The portions are huge. Must come and try. You won’t be disappointed.
Crust is an amazing restaurant in every possible way. From the moment we walked on, Anita one of the owners greeted us like we were part of her family. She is wonderful ! We arrived early for our reservation but she still sat us down immediately. Our waiter Bo was friendly and so helpful ! The menu selection is vast, there is something for everyone. We started off with calamari which were delicious. Then we had the shrimp cakes. Wow , just wow, so delicious and flavorful ! My husband and I went with our teenage children and truly had a wonderful time. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli, I had the seafood risotto, our daughter had the cheese pizza and our son was brave enough to tackle the largest chicken parmesan dish I have ever seen. As we were eating, the restaurant began to fill up, it is a very popular place. The food, the service and the ambience all were excellent. The chef Klime Kovaceski is truly talented. It was truly the best place to celebrate my 47th birthday !!
Excellent food and service! Big delicious portions! Everyone who works there always have smiles on their faces and the service is terrific.
Wonderful staff, owner greets guests at front door. The food is delicious, had the mediterranean pizza👌🏻
Plates are very big, very big wine selection also.
This was our 2nd visit to your restaurant and as was the first time we were there the service and food exceeded our expectations! Thank you for a wonderful, enjoyable and yummy evening! The owner came over to us several times and could not have been nicer! We will definitely be back!
Love this place! Too bad it is not closer to us as we would be regulars. Great food and wonderful service!
Don't let the 3 stars fool you. I'm just picky. We enjoyed ourselves at this restaurant, and would come again. But, our expectations a second time would align better with our experiences. So, here's a review:
Service - Excellent. From the moment we walked in and until we exited, service was exceptional. Crust does a great job of attending to you and taking care of you. The team is friendly, helpful, and engaging.
Environment - quaint! Just be prepared for the busy atmosphere. People flock here. And for good reason, it's a nice restaurant.
Food - Average, but ginormous portions! The overall OpenTable rating led me to believe the food would be outstanding. It wasn't. The portions are much larger than they need to be, and in many dishes the flavors meld together into a blur. We tried 4 appetizers, and they were not bad. Food was hot and fried items were crunchy (even with sauce put over). The food comes out fast, too. That's a compliment. The pizza was eh. The sauce dishes (bolognese and lasagna) were overwhelming and large. That said, you can feed a large family with fewer dishes, and the food is good. I dinged the food rating because of my tastes.
Overall - it's definitely worth a shot. And we do recommend. Just expect more of a country Italian with large portions and less finesse.
went to Crust 2 days in a row because the food was so good, portions gigantic and value
It is very rare that a restaurant lives up to your expectations, but I have to say Crust has succeeded. We came here for an early dinner prior to seeing Elton John in concert at the American Airlines arena. The day before, Chris called to check on our needs and reservation, and tonight we were greeted with a warm friendly welcome by Anita. You will need to valet park at a cost of $6.00.
The restaurant is very dark and cozy, and I was glad to find out that it was not overly loud. We brought my 86-year-old mother who is a little hard of hearing but she had a wonderful evening. Thanks to Jane our server from Milton Keynes, a fellow Brit, who made the evening special.
Mum and I started with the shrimp cakes which are plenty big enough to share, they were perfectly cooked with a lightly fried exterior, and a delicious sauce. We also ordered three garlic knots, they were outstanding. My husband said they were the best garlic rolls he’s ever had. Soft and tasty.
House wines by the glass were excellent, and under $10 a glass. My mother had a chicken dish, my husband the linguine carbonara, and I had the penne Bolognese. Our meals could’ve served 2 to 3 people and we had masses of leftovers to take home. Before we left this lovely warm welcoming place, Anita came back to offer us a complimentary glass of port which was also delicious. What a lovely evening, and Elton John was great too!
The service and the people really do make a difference, when you are treated like family at a restaurant in Miami, it makes a very welcome change. No wonder Crust gets such good reviews. And the food is served piping hot, also a rarity in Miami which made us Brits very happy.
Great pizza’s. Large shareable portions for “family friendly type” of pastas
We went to Crust in thanksgiving and it was awesome. Loved, loved the complementary pumpkin soup. It was delicious!!! Service was outstanding! I must add that Anita is Always a pleasure to see there. She is the conversation in the car before getting to the restaurant. I always loved the music the have. I don’t know about you but I enjoy having drinks and dinner with Depeche Mode playing in the background. Once again, I truly love Crust and I will be coming back very soon. Thank you Anita and team
Amazing service. The owner is a delight beyond compare.
Margarita Pizza was not what we had hoped. It was Thanksgiving. But the cheese, crust, sauce was disappointing. I like Neapolitan, NY or Chicago style. This was something in between. Not at all what we would recommend.
Soup, appetizers and salads were very good.
Would come back for pasta or other entrees just not for the pizza
Food and service are outstanding and I will go back again and again!
Great service, great food, huge portions, great value!
Awesome...everything was great...food was amazing, service great and the hostess/part owner is so welcoming, this was our second experience and it was just as wonderful as the first! We will be back!
Overall great! Awesome for a group!!! Exceptional servic!!!
This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Their food was simply amazing. The lasagna is to diet for, their lamp chop and risotto where mouth watering and their wine incredible as well! It was an awesome experience...the wait staff was extremely attentive. They were always near by if we needed anything but never intrusive or rushing us...we were a large party...and all of us got anything we needed in seconds. I would highly recommend!
Amazing food and service. The best pizza in Miami. Highly recommended.
I received world class service. It was refreshing to know that the employees were so involved and dedicated to their work
Buen restaurante con comida italiana muy abundante. Platos grandes y sabrosos. Todo bien hecho.
El personal es amable y conocen bien la carta.
Mejoraría la luz ambiente
We love coming here ! Best home style, family portions Italian food in the area. The service is above and beyond, consistently! We love it! Thanks Chris for all your recommendations.
Good food, excellent service. Will go again.
The food and service always above expectations here!
We always leave happy
Amazing! This place hits all the notes. Great food, service, menu, attitude, ambiance... Top 3 for all-time best Italian and overall experience. Go hungry! The portions are rather large - and you’ll want to eat it all - but I bet you can’t!
Rob from Utah
Always a great pleasure to join the atmosphere there!
Ordered a salad with Mahi mahi ( the cost of mahi was extra $9 )
Salad was nice size portion but mahi mahi was 3 bite size pieces for $9
