Happy hour ends at 6 and the music doesn't start till 8:30. I like their menu but I liked it more before they had the build your own pasta. I think the chef should be able to make a menu. Servers are a little rushed and busy even though there are not that many people in the restaurant. The servers... More

We just discovered this restaurant and would totally go back again. We were there for lunch and ordered a bunch of appetizers and a dessert to die for - service was outstanding and we were told that they also have music on some nights. We sat outside in the little courtyard ...

The food was good but we had to wait over an hour for our food. We did not feel the value was worth the price.

I am celiac and can get seared scallops with a vegi or an appetizer with some delicious shrimp after I talk to staff member or kitchen. Great wine list, music at time. One of my favorites to visit when in town if time allows.

I go to Crush a couple a times a month for happy hour. The pizza and salads aver very good. They have some terrific beers on tap. The servers are knowledgeable and competent. The place has a good vibe.

Caesar salad not good. We returned it. Service poor. When specials given by server - he should have advised of the price. It was shared and it should have been shared in the kitchen or we should have been given that option. Server advised he would bring bread - but he had to be reminded.

I had been dreaming of the Kale Salad from the time I got on the plan! Service is excellent! Food is super delicious and prices are reasonable. We all enjoyed our dinner. Gluten free pizza was a hit with our boss!

My husband and I ordered pasta the evening we were there. Being from Chicago we consider ourselves snob when it comes to authentic Italian food. We were not disappointed, our waiter even suggested a different pasta shape that would compliment the Bolognese sauce...he was correct. Love this place !!!

Spend a great New Year's Eve here, music a bit draggy, food average staff had their own priorities. Nevertheless we all had a really good evening and everyone was very friendly, hats, poppers, bazookers all on the house created a good atmosphere. I would actually recommend this for an occasion.
