The appetizer was delicious as well as the desert- the fish entree however tasted overwhelmingly like pepper.

We were passing through Melbourne from Savannah to Miami and stopped to eat here based on Open Table reviews. Wow!! Amazing food full of interesting layers of flavor! There were four of us and we all ordered different things and each was equally kind-blowing. If you like plank steak, I highly recommend! We didn’t have room for dessert unfortunately but next time, we will partake. Thank you!

Flavors on the food are fantastic. I’ve never had a bad meal here. We especially enjoyed the nashville hot duck tenders and my husband’s chicken Linguini dish was amazing. Typically it’s a little quieter, but we dined on NYE and it was extremely rowdy.

Had a fabulous meal in a well-spaced and pleasant outdoor setting. Excellent service too! Very impressed with the care this restaurant takes not only with its food and presentation, but also — during these strange times — with its efforts to protect its staff and clientele from the pandemic. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return!

We've been here numerous times and never disappointed. This visit, however, was exceptional. Our waiter Victor made everything extra special. He was spot on with a great sense of humor and good timing. He didn't make too much, but made just enough of a special occasion. Bravo Victor, a diamond in this local gem of a restaurant.

Not busy on a Tuesday for Crush XI, but the service was impeccable by Kenny! Service with a "smile" behind a mask. Everything he recommended was great and I will definitely come back and ask for Kenny. Had two Bacon infused Old Fashions, not on the menu appetizer - Bacon-wrapped dates, Filet with Thai slaw and buttermilk mashed potatoes, and though I should not have - Brussel Sprouts with bacon and candied pecons with Maple Miso. The reason I should not have is that I had no room for dessert.

We Love this place, Friday night was packed and the noise level was too high. We got used to it, eventually, but it was really loud. Victor was our server and he was fabulous; on point with suggestions and his service was superior. The food was equally fabulous.

This was my 2nd visit to Crush XI. This is one of those restaurants that has trouble in delivering on the entire menu. Excessive saltiness was the problem with the first time (brunch) and dry, overcooked meat was the problem with my most recent visit. I won't be going back unless they improve on the food.

We had an excellent night with friends. The food was incredible and our service was excellent as well. We had not been there and the only drawback was where we were seated ( back room ) near kitchen entry / back patio - which service went in and out often, but other than that, could not have have a better night.

We had the best fresh cocktails to start and the food was outstanding!!!! Simple dishes elevated to have delicious & unique flavor combinations. The waiter we had was so knowledgeable about the menu and this is honestly the best service I’ve had anywhere. I was amazed. I love this place’s vibe, the cocktails AND the food. It will be hard to eat anywhere but here in the future! Best of Melbourne for sure!!!

Our food was delicious and our server was exactly what you want, attentive but not obtrusive. Cocktails were delicious and the evening was wonderful!
The only problem with this restaurant is the noise level which makes it difficult to hear one another and the server.
However, it was a great meal and we will be back!

Out on Date Night away from the kids and all of the drama that typically entails, my 1st visit to Crush XI started with a nice setting and comfortable ambiance. Then our server, Denise, was friendly, knowledgeable and polite. But the pièce de résistance was our meal. 2 words...Absolutely Delicious! We had a wonderful date night and I highly recommend! Enjoy!

We tried Crush XI for brunch. We started with a caramelized onion tart which was especially good. I had the The Elvis and my wife had the Basic Breakfast. The seasoning a bit off on my wife's cheese grits (too salty) and scrambled eggs (too much pepper. The turkey sausage was slightly overcooked, but not dried out. The Elvis tasted great and the brioche french toast was perfect. I want to go back again because I believe this restaurant has the potential to be outstanding based on the quality of the bread and pastries.
