Crush - Sandusky Ratings and Reviews

Was satisfied for the most part. However, we ordered a cheese plate and literally was brought a cheese plate with no bread or crackers. When we asked for crackers was brought a few crackers and told that they ran out of bread and crackers. Should have been given the option to cancel the cheese plate or at least comp for the cheese plate. Wine selection was good.

What a pleasant surprise to find in Sandusky! In an area that is full of chain restaurants, this is a gem. The food was outstanding - we shared several of the "small plates" and all were very good. Everything was very fresh and created to order (including modifications for food allergies - which were all done correctly). Absolutely loved the duck wings - they are addictive! For the first time ever, I think, I loved all the wines in the flight that I ordered! It is a little pricey, but I think it is definitely worth it for the quality. We will certainly be back.

Have eaten at CRUSH in the past .... a little pricey but the food is good. However when we arrived for our "anniversary" dinner the place was CLOSED ------ either this booking service or CRUSH screwed up my anniversary royally! We drove a good way to eat there and nothing ... ended up walking around the corner to another place to get a burger :( NOT HAPPY

We went to Crush Wine for our anniversary. It was very quiet and unique, with wine bottles stacked to the ceiling and a immense wine list. We ordered the duck wings, pork chops and salmon pasta. Sadly the duck wings and pork chops were hard to eat due to the rock hard breading. The breading also made the food tasteless and completely dried out the meat inside. However the salmon pasta was amazing and cooked perfectly. My advice is to stay away from the fried food and it should be good. The price is high for the quality of the food however.

We ordered appetizers, main dish, and dessert. Everything we had was delicious!! Not knowing much about wine, we ordered "something sweet and white". Our waitress quickly told us say no more and brought back an amazing bottle for us. Absolutely will go back!!
Crush NEVER disappoints
I've been to Crush several times and have always had a good experience, this visit was as amazing as always. I took my mom for her first time so we could enjoy a nice "mother - daughter" dinner the evening before Mother's Day. We had made a reservation for 5pm and when we walked in our table was ready and waiting for us. The wine selection is impressive, even my mother who always has a difficult time finding a red wine that she likes was able to find one that she fell in love with! Our food (from the small plate appetizers to our meal) was beyond amazing!! Zack was our server and was extremely friendly, helpful and attentive the entire time we were there. I can not speak highly enough about Crush and will be back a hundred times!!! If you've never been then you are truly missing out.
My music buddy and I love going to Crush before attending the Firelands Symphony. Our waiter, Zachary was so pleasant and the food excellent, especially my seafood dish. We did have to wait an extra long time for some reason, and a server assisting Zachary brought a wrong plate to my friend. It was remedied quickly and Zach handled it very pleasantly and professionally, though a young college student. We will keep our lovely tradition and enjoy being able to make my reservation with my iPhone. They even sent me a reminder and sent the menue the day before. Nice!
This is such a wonderful restaurant, the food is outstanding. Shared the greens-strawberry salad, pierogis, scallops. Butternut squash soup was incredible. Desserts are delicious, had mousse and brownie with chocolate ice cream. If that's not enough, the martinis are the best. Recommend the chocolate, as well as the French.
Intimate New Years Eve Dinner
Love the coziness of this place. Have been here many times and still love the baby greens salad with strawberries and pecans....it is a must try if you have not. We skipped on the bread and oil this time so as not to fill up before our meal. The beef short ribs were amazingly tender and delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for the area.
Losing its luster
I am usually very happy with my meal but not this time. It was freezing in the dining area, couldn't wait to get outside where it warmer. Sad for December 12. The scallops and short ribs were an odd pairing. Short ribs were tough, marinated olives should be warm so as not to be ordinary. The pineapple upside down cake was gritty like it was made with course corn meal. The bread and dipping oil were delicious.
A gem in Sandusky
A wonderful find in downtown Sandusky. We took our teens (3 of them) as a kickoff to our Cedar Point weekend visit. What a great start it was! The food was well-prepared, the tenderloin steak, salmon and mac and cheese were devoured. Service was terrific, prompt and delightful. The table in the back was nestled in a lovely nook and allowed us a comfortable dining spot. Not a complaint in the group; highly recommend this restaurant. My husband and I wish we lived closer - as it most certainly would become a favorite place to sneak off to without the kids, even if just for a glass of wine and a crabcake.
The food is so tasteful. Great variety. Baby greens salad with strawberries was very fresh. Loved the pierogies. Scallops are unique. Roots veges were cooked to perfection. Desserts were to die for, brownie with chocolate ice cream and chocolate mousse. Very extensive wine list, and super martinis. Wait staff very attentive and pleasant. Good atmosphere. Go, you won't be disappointed.
