First time for me and my wife to this restaurant. There was no confusion about the reservation as you run into with other locations. We were seated, and attended to right away. Alax, our waitress was outstanding! Friendly, listens, suggest, and was very attentive to all her tables throughout the restaurant. The plates of food.... Huge is an understatement! And the quality and taste was outstanding. Will come here again.

I NEVER write a review BUT... food? Amazing. Wine list? Simple but great selection and some of most reasonable prices I’ve ever seen. Service? Best I’ve experienced in Miami in recent memory. In a town where everyone wants to suck every last dime out of you, they are honest about their portions (huge!). Also, I didn’t notice 18% tip was already included on bill when I left 25% on total. Two minutes after I left restaurant, I received a call from staff checking on whether I really meant to leave that 25% on top of the 18% already included on bill. WHAT?!

In a town where it is rare to have BOTH great service and wonderful food, CRUST is a stand out. We were accommodated in every way, all of the staff were on top of everything, and we were never told to keep our utensils for the next course (a pet peeve). Come with an appetite -- the entrees should be called family style because that is how much food comes. Everything was delicious and even better reheated the next day (no way to eat it all at the restaurant). Crust salad was amazing -- slightly too much dressing, but that's just me. This place feels like home and the service is wonderfully casual but as attentive as any five star steakhouse. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and tremendous portions (family style). I had the seafood risotto and it was excellent as was the grilled octopus with spinach risotto. I absolutely enjoy the fact that the table is yours for 2 hours. No one is pestering you with "is there anything else i can get you?" when you are finished. Great pace and servers.

I had the most wonderful experience. My waitress had a beautiful spirit and my husband and I was always greeted with a smile. They made us feel as if our presence was valued and the food was plentiful and phenomenal. I loved it and would not mind spending my time and money there everytime I visit Miami. I will tell all of my family and friends that CRUST is a "must visit " resturant when they take on the Miami life. Thanks for such a beautiful experience, especially for my birthday/14th wedding anniversary 🥰

When we first arrived the welcome we received was so warming and lovely!

So many great choices on the menu and all of our food was incredible and very generously portioned! My table had the seafood linguine, the meatball Parmesan, the penne ragu and the meet pizza and every one of them were fabulous.

Would highly recommend to go there, just make sure you’re hungry!!

The mood, ambiance and decor is fabulous but the food is fantastic in every aspect. Not only do you get huge portions, but the taste, temperature is outstanding. I plan to come soon with out of town friends. I am positive they too will love it.

Not a good experience. Group of 6 and all experimented some sort of issue on their plates. Overcooked risotto, burrata salad with a small piece of burrata and prosciuto not really a prosciuto, lasagna with raw cream inside, and more. Very poor wine list. Plates are quite big - serve 2 easy, but shouldn't apply the extra charge for split portions. Not expensive overall but don't raise your expectations.

This is a wonderful find for those looking for high quality Italian food choices. There is a vibe and a buzz, and it is clear that the diners are all enjoying the food and the atmosphere and the huge portions. Be prepared with an ice freezer pack waiting in your car, as likely you will want any uneaten food to travel home with you.

Food is great. A+++ Portions are enormous and you will most likely be going home with leftovers. Only cons are the dining room is tight and seating is right on top of each other. Also the no substitute policy for pastas and sauces is a little ridiculous. It should be that hard for the kitchen to substitute pasta with marinara sauce to garlic and oil. But they stood firm to not allowing changes. I understand for to go orders but in house orders should be a little more flexible.

Crust has very tasty and freshly crafted food served in large portions at reasonable prices so it is an outstanding value which no doubt is what drives the top tier rating. Do not expect this will be the pinnacle of Italian cuisine, but very good food and a top performer for value.
