I tried one new item, the onion tart off the appetizer menu. It was amazing. Caramelized onions, with brie and gorgonzola. It is perfect for two to share. Then for brunch I had a favorite item, the crab cake benedict. I miss the spicy serranos that used to be on the dish, but loved the grilled asparagus. Everything perfectly cooked. Perfectly poached eggs. Grilled asparagus still had a nice firmness and great flavor. Crab cakes are always on point. Favorite cocktail for brunch is the French 75!

This place is wonderful, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food. The menu is not very large, but that is something I prefer. If you have too many choices it makes it hard to decide, along with making it feel like a chain restaurant.
This place had ambiance and class.
The food was phenomenal. They also have specialty drinks that were very exotic.

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.

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.
