We enjoyed happy hour at crush last Wednesday. There are maybe a dozen or so appetizers on the HH menu,;and we learned that if you order enough of them, you can put together a very tasty dinner. There are discounted prices for all the wine...More

We were regulars here during the Solana Beach Crush’s infancy. The pastas and pizzas were excellent, the waitstaff friendly and efficient, and wine selections good but maybe overpriced. After two poor experiences last year, we swore off the restaurant. Last week we decided to give...More

My first choice was too busy, and I found this while driving around. TA reviews seemed reasonable, so in I went. PrIces in line with a good beach town place. Drinks were average, risotto was excellent, as was the fettuccine, although the chicken was a...More

Nice ambiance, above average food, a little pricey but you are in a resort area minutes from the beach. Staff was attentive and courteous. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Place was still buzzing at 2pm for a late lunch after the SD Zoo. The girls had the flights of margaritas - and were tasty. Meals were all very good. Good vibe and service.

What keeps this place going is the wait staff. The menu is somewhat limited for my tastes, but the happy hour and friendly wait staff keeps the doors open. Live music some nights, and deals on glasses of wine and beer. Nice atmosphere.

Went here yesterday evening. Hey where’s the heat. Too early for music so the atmosphere is pretty sterile plus the chill in the air. The wine list here is really sad. Very few choices by the glass or for that matter the bottle. Seems to...More

I had avoided this restaurant in previous visits to Solana Beach because I had heard it was a gathering place for twenty-somethings which I am certainly not. I was wrong. While I'm sure the live music attracts the younger Friday night crowd, you don't need...More

Went there for dinner. It had the live music, so it seemed a good place to relax. Ordered fennel sausage pizza and garlic sautéd spinach side. Both were very tasty. The pizza was thick crust pizza, I think it would be better if it were...More

Don't be dissuaded by Crush being tucked away in a strip mall off hwy 101. Totally worth a stop. Good ambiance, great local band (Mojo Working from san diego), excellent service by David our server. I got the pepperoni pizza (extra sauce) and my husband...More

Just as Italians believe that food is a means for maintaining bonds among family and friends, so does Crush. For this reason, the interior was designed with that in mind. Crush is casual and comfortable space inspired by the natural beauty of the ocean. Our interpretation of the sea and sands, like our coast line, soft warm colors resonate throughout the restaurant. Buon Appetito!!
