“Overpriced!!!”
Review of Crush

Crush
Ranked #15 of 80 Restaurants in Solana Beach
Cuisines: Italian

Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: 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!!

Wine was good, service was ok, but food very mediocre for the price. A meal for 4 with several glasses of wine and beer, good salad and not very Italian Margherita pizza was nearly $300.00. Could have better food at my favorite restaurant Pamplemouse for the same price. We should have gone there!

I have been here several times. Their pasta dishes are very good, especially the one with lemon butter caper sauce (so good, I got extra sauce and took it home). You can "build your own" pasta, or pizza. Fun. But, I think the food is expensive for what you get. For instance, build your own pasta, you get a nice pasta dish to your liking, but it will cost $25 to $30. Seems like a lot of money for a pasta dish, especially for a restaurant in a strip mall.

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 are very friendly and helpful though. Two hostesses and a manager/owner maybe chatted the whole time with each other.

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.
