Food and craft cocktails were delicious. Had a family gathering of 7 giving us all a chance to share delicious food and catch up. The Sriracha Flat Iron was delicious as were the mashed potatoes. Miles took great care of my family with great service. Thank you!

My fiance and I love Crush XI! Last night was our first time taking my in-laws and my fiance's brother and his fiance and everyone LOVED IT! Everything from the atmosphere to the drinks to the food to the service was above and beyond. Our server's name was Reese and he was FANTASTIC! He was engaging, funny, extremely polite, and very knowledge about the drink and food menus. There were 6 of us at the table and when he would talk with us he would continue to move to both sides of the table to ensure everyone could hear him. Our entire family loved his sense of humor and how nice he was. The drinks and food are always amazing here, but the service is really what makes this place a stand out. Every time we go we have amazing service and the nicest people as our servers. We highly recommend this place to everyone!

The meal here is always great. I have celiac and the have great Gluten-free options, and a knowledgable staff. I've had the pork chop and the steak, both are amazing. Alec was a wonderful server too.

Our first visit, but certainly not our last. We had a reservation (Saturday early evening), and we were sat immediately upon arrival. Drinks and food were delicious (my husband didn’t love the duck fettuccine, but everything else out weighed it in flavor). Loved this restaurant!

Would have given Crush 5 stars if it were not for the fact they do not require staff members to be either vaccinated or wear masks during the worst levels of the pandemic in Brevard county. We did ask for (and got) an outside table with no other diners but dining inside is a potential cesspool of covid infection. If you don't mind being exposed then by all means go. In every other respect it is a great dining experience.

Scallops were way too salty, orecchiette pasta had zero flavor except cayenne. Halibut was totally over cooked. So disappointing! On a side note, having halibut paired with smoked kielbasa totally overwhelmed the fish.

We enjoyed an outrageously delicious dinner at Crush XI. Thanks to our server's detailed explanation of how the menu worked, what the style of food was, etc., we were able to enjoy choices well-tailored to us – including a recommended wine pairing by the glass, something not very many restaurants will do, if you don't want a whole bottle.

My only complaint about the experience was that the menu was super-heavy on bacon. Bacon in my Old Fashioned, bacon on the dates, bacon on the scallops, bacon in the Brussels sprouts. It's a good thing I like bacon.

Also, I would've liked to enjoy the strip steak, but at $75, no thank you.

This is a great date place or six gals out for a birthday (like us)!. The bartender (blonde gal) was amazing-answered all our questions and her recommendations were spot on. Our server explained everything, had great recommendations and we were all very satisfied. I loved the bacon wrapped medjool dates! It is pricey but we will definitely go back for
a special occasion.

Both the onion tart and the burger were covered in fog jam. It was all you could taste. Burger was greasy with two patties, too, which we did not realize when we ordered. Dates were also very greasy and just ok. Overall too expensive for the quality of the food but we did have a great waitress!

Very good food and the service/attention was excellent. A little loud but that was due to other guests and not on the part of the restaurant. This remains out favorite restaurant in Melbourne.
