Californian. In the fall of 1998, First Crush opened their doors and immediately became one of San Francisco's favorite rendezvous spots for couples, friends, and colleagues looking for a restaurant that can truly accommodate any and all occasions. The stylish yet unpretentious street level restaurant offers a lively setting perfect for an early get together amongst friends or an intimate late night snack, glass of wine or sharing a scrumptious dessert with that special someone. First Crush offers a seasonal changing menu offering the freshest ingredients available. The restaurant takes pride in the extensive wine list, offering a large selection of both classic family California wineries as well as up and comers.
First Crush offers a “casual upscale” atmosphere for individuals, private events and large parties in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square district, featuring the largest all-California wine list in the city. Low ceilings, polished decor and a cool backdrop of ambient music contribute to an intimate setting for enjoying First Crush’s elegant American French cuisine. The restaurant has been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004.
