"If you're an oenophile", you'll think you've "died and gone to wine heaven" at this "trendy" King West Continental-French where "knowledgeable" servers help guests select from the "extensive wine list" and "interesting" dishes to match; yes, it's "expensive", but a large, loftlike space makes it "good for groups" and "special occassions."

Its 6 year history is maintained with posters advertising the establishment created by local artists. Groups of friends and coworkers in the media and film industry mingle over wine and cheese at the larger tables. Those wanting an upscale date come here for... more

It's a much... more
I have been to Crush Wine Bar about 5 times now. I have had some amazing dishes there. My most recent visit was November 21st, 2014. Appetizer Chicken Fried Quail was definitely the best. Wow is all I can say. Really that good. The meat was juicy and it came with Jasmine rice which was the perfect balance with the quail. My main course was Scallops and Pork Belly. The scallops were so soft and... more
