Second time there and we were as impressed as with the first. Really unique dishes and execution, friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff, rich wine choices. Beef tartare was probably the best we've ever had. Scallops were to die for, made more interesting by the accompanying tomato jam. Wagyu entree also very impressive. In my opibion portion size were not a... More

The restaurant is located in downtown Seattle off Maddison and Broadway. The actual restaurant is inside old house that is made into a restaurant. You can hear the Old wood squeaking when people are going back-and-forth. It is cancer they're fine dining restaurant however the proximity between tables makes me feel a little squeeze. Great food and great service. They... More

After hearing many raves about this place we went there. It was in an old hous near 23rd and Maddison. The food was OK, but nothing like what I was expecting based on others comments..

The food was splendid. However, I should have indicated on my reservation that this was an anniversary dinner...or perhaps we should have worn couture. I'm really not one to complain in my reviews, but I really have a hard time appreciating a place that treats its customers according to their apparent income. Our waitress was pleasant but indifferent, and chose... More

Recently I went with friends to Crush with some foodie friends. None of us had been there before, and were anxious to try it. Several of us ordered a starter, which the portion size should have been called an amuse. The portions were so small that it was no more than a bite. That should have been a clue that... More

The food is amazing, as is the service. The atmosphere is unusual (formerly a residence, remodeled in a modern-but-intimate restaurant design), but great for a romantic dinner for two. Not the most inexpensive place of course, but it one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle for special occasions.

This ace has been in plane site for seattle citizens for years. It really blew me away the variety and choices they had made for the tasting menu. Each dish delivered promptly after you've finale the last with new silverware and wine pairing. Excellent service well trained staff for a great night for a great meal

My husband had been to Crush before, and was excited to share its creative food with me. We tried many dishes and I can only say that the waygu beef was amazing, and the other dishes were not far behind. What made it even more of an enjoyable experience was that the chef made an effort to provide guests with... More

So, I had the fortune of dining at this restaurant last week, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself! Crush serves up American cuisine with an ultra-modern flair, and the chefs do NOT disappoint. For my dining experience, I chose to sit at their kitchen bar, so I had full view of the chefs in action throughout the evening. And, yes! It... More

When I go to a restaurant I want to order dishes that I myself haven't yet prepared, or at least rarely do make. I don't want to eat something I will find in my own kitchen in a few days. Ordering at Crush made that requirement very easy. The menu is small but each item on it is definitely a... More
