Absolutely fabulous dinner, service and ambiance. The food was fresh, delicious and made with care. The service was impeccable. I would give 5 stars for everything were it not for the restrooms: no supplies and filthy. I hope the restaurant invests in their own restrooms rather than share them with others in the building.

Overall it was ok, our waitress didn’t come around as much... and we found a spider in our cup! We were kinda upset about our dinner entrees thinking we were going to get sliced potatoes instead of Mashed potatoes... and the 16oz ribeye was not as buttery as usual!

My daughters and I always go there if we want to spend "special time together" and Chicken Picatta is my favorite. I also like the cheese garlic bread and the roasted artichoke.

Enjoyed a nice dinner there on Friday. The place was busy, but we were seated at a nice table without a wait. The appetizers and entrees were well prepared and tasty. Nice wine list that complements the menu. The service was good and friendly, but there was a problem with timing- our entrees came out while we had just begun our first course. Otherwise a nice dining experience.

Terrible service. We were there for 2 hours. Just 4 of us. Maybe our waiter forgot to put our order in.
When the food finally came two dishes were cold and two piping hot. Maybe a kitchen mistake. The flavor was mediocre. Steak and taters too salty and cold. And the waiter was wierd and aloof. When he brought the second beer he didnt even take the empty glass. My other empty cocktail glass stayed through the whole dinner. Too bad. I want to like this place.
I think it might be best for drinks and happy hour.

Just 2 of us. Not a good experience. Gin & tonic arrived. No taste, more like soda water. Waiter corrected problem. Said tonic had run out & they were fixing it. Replacement was good. Barbecued artichoke ordered for starter. Tough as shoe leather. Only heart was edible. No charge for that. Both meals were OK. Generous servings, plenty of food. Not my first choice in the future.

We were visiting from out of town and the hotel recommended Crush. We had one of the best dining experiences we've had in ages. The food was spectacular, everything was cooked exquisitely, the service was fabulous, the ambiance was great and when the bill came we couldn't believe how cheap it was!! (Admittedly we live in the SF bay area where restaurants are much more expensive in general, and Chico is for sure less expensive, but still we were very happily blown away by the entire experience)!!

I didn't find the food was quite as good as it has been in the past. We ordered the frito misto which was always are go to starter. It had very little fried calamari in it, it was mostly fried veggies. My husband said he enjoyed his steak, although the ones we have at home are better. I had the fettuccini which I found to be unremarkable. The service was still good, however just slightly less attentive than in the past.

The food was excellent. Unfortunately, our order got behind a couple of other large party orders, and took an excessive amount of time to be served, which caused us to miss a concert we had tickets for. The manager was most gracious, and we'll definitely return for another meal, just as long as we don't have a hard deadline at the end of dinner.

This was our Daughter's grad lunch (Chico State). Our server, Nick, was super attentive to our party of 8 despite pulling a "double" that day. The Open Table system would only allow to reserve for 5 but the restaurant changed it to 8 manually (and I got my points!). All of my guests were very happy. Portions are big so we did do some sharing. For a very busy day, they were on their game!!!

This restaurant is located in downtown Chico. It is a nice restaurant inside but could use an update or at least a refresh. It has a bar. The menu is mostly geared to Italian type food. Service is good. Parking can be difficult and it is easy to miss as it is upstairs with businesses below.

Had a delicious meal at Crush with the family. Service was fantastic and noise level was low (was a Monday evening). My gnocchi was cooked perfectly and the fam all loved their dishes as well. Highly recommend.
