Overly hyped... 10/12/2006

My fiance took me to Crush last might for my birthday. I've been wanting to try this place out for a while now and was looking forward to it. I've heard great things from people and was hoping to have a fabulous meal! I made reservations the day before and was able to get one for 8pm (which was later than I hoped but we went for it anyhow). When we got there, we were quickly seated and our server came with water. The place is very small, it had a maximum of maybe 15 tables? Everything was very white (from tables to the seats), it felt a little cramped to me. The seats were plastic and the booth had hard white leather. I was hoping for more of a warmer atmosphere, but I thought it was a bit uncomfortable for me. Anyhow, our server came offered us an array of beverages and we decided to just have water since we don't really drink. The menu looked really good though. We ordered 3 appetizers, the blue cheese tart topped with Asian pears, seared foie gra steak (we really love this stuff!), and grilled octopus. For our entrée, I ordered the duck and my fiance ordered the sea bass with a butter and caviar sauce. The appetizers came fairly quick. I was disappointed with the foie gra, it was dry and over cooked. It didn't taste as fatty as it's supposed to. I did however, like the huckleberry sauce that was drizzled on the foie gra, that was delish! The grilled octopus was pretty good, different, I didn't think it was going to be soft, but it was. My favorite was definitely the blue cheese tart. The blue cheese was not overwhelming and the combination of the flaky pastry and the sweat pear was to die for! We were pretty full, but our entrée came and I must say the presentation was pretty. My duck though, didn't taste like duck. It was a bit rubbery, not as soft as I imagined it to be. Overall, it was ok. The sea bass was pretty tender, but it was fishy because of the caviar. We didn't like that as much either. To sum it up, the food was ok-good, but not great. The service was excellent but I think the food was a bit over hyped. I would come back, but not that I'm dying to come back for seconds! more
