I had two evening dinning experiences at Crest. One 5 star and one 2 star which I combine to a 4 rating based on great great service. Avoid the NY Strip Steak. I had two really good bites then the rest was gristle. When asked "how was your dinner?" I replied "Your NY steak is horrible" and I got a... More

3 of us were dining on a Saturday night. It was not crowded, we were seated promptly. The waitress was ok, however she did not explain the limited menu very well. It is an open concept restaurant so it is a little noisy to have a conversation. The food was nothing special. We may give this place a second chance.

We stopped by last night and were pleasantly surprised by the updated menu. Very nice! Lots of choice. We typically visit the Parsons location but found the menu there to be a bit tired. Hoping that location gets an update too. Try the cucumber clutch cocktail. Very refreshing!

Lunch service was really good and we had a fantastic waiter who seemed to have a good knowledge of the beer. My seasonal salad was lovely and had a nice addition of the sweet potatoes. My dad's falafel sandwich was delicious and the fries we had were to die for. I would recommend for lunch any day.

A friend of mine and I had lunch here this week. Great decor and atmosphere and a nice patio that we will go back for as the weather gets nicer. Everything on the menu sounds good and everything they brought out of the kitchen looked fabulous. She asked for a grilled chicken sandwich (not on the menu) and they accommodated... More

Three of us went here on a Tuesday evening, seated immediately, and great service. The beer list is broad and varied - I had Jackie O's Grave, which was fabulous. Food was also great; the Fried Goat Cheese was stunning - delicately flavoured, wondrous. For main we had the Falafel, the burger and the fish and chips. All were excellent,... More

My wife and I and five friends gathered at The Crest for a Saturday night get together and celebration of a planned upcoming trip together to India. I had heard good things about this restaurant but had never been here before. Even though it was relatively early, just 6PM, the restaurant was packed. Though it was rather loud and a... More

Dropped in on a Saturday afternoon, to a great little gastropub. Nice staff. Great selection of craft beer, Julie had B. A. BORIS from Hoppin Frog Brewery, a great Russian imperial stout. Started with the fried Goat cheese. Absolutely awesome. They have a good selection of meat and vegan sandwiches and entres. The falafel wrap was excellent. The vegan sandwich... More

Met some friends here on a Saturday night at 8:00 pm. We were able to find a few spots at the bar, but it took about an hour to get seated. I had a martini in the meantime--one of the best I've had in a long time. Staff was super friendly, and we even got some free appetizers for the... More

We stopped here after 4pm mass last Saturday night. We got right in and seated. It was a while before anyone addressed us, but when she finally did we were well taken care of.
