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.

The crab cake hors d'oeuvre was fabulous and that's saying something from this MD couple. The server did where a mask but actually talked above it which defeated the purpose. There were a lot of people at the bar that we had to weave around for a mid-week reservation especially during these pandemic times. Food was excellent - we'll be back.

It’s not our first visit and it’s definitely not our last. Crush is our favorite restaurant in the area. The steak 🥩 s far better than the steakhouse a few miles north. Servers and bartenders are always friendly and polite. Stu mixes up some great cocktails at the bar. Highly recommend this establishment.

Very well done! My vesper was expertly crafted by the bartender. The caramelized onion and fig tart on puff pastry with gorgonzola was amazing, as was my walnut and parmesan encrusted triple tail with succotash.

The attentiveness of the staff to the eclectic menu to the deliciousness of the food made this a place that we will certainly visit when we are once again In Melbourne. Our thanks to everyone at Crush for making our final vacation meal such a pleasant experience!

Have enjoyed our visits, from Cocoa to Melbourne, at Crush XI. Menu is imaginative, food presentation and taste are very good. Servers are well informed and hospitable. Everything great, but it's far too loud to enjoy being there - an uncomfortable level, even with the rooms not full.

I brought my friend for her birthday dinner and everything was superb! Extremely attentive wait staff, perfectly mixed cocktails, and beautiful food. I would have preferred the restaurant to be more full because I enjoy places that are buzzing with energy, but they were observing the six feet apart rule, which I appreciated. Overall great experience!
