    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    I picked this spot for a special date night with my boyfriend and was disappointed. All of our starters (we had 3) were lackluster and lacked flavor and finesse. Multiple times I caught myself thinking 'i could have stayed in and made that'. The entrees were better, but the plates still arrived lacking complexity and excitement. The staff was accommodating, but the space lacked ambiance and the overall aesthetic was just lost on me (perhaps because there wasn't much). I had been looking forward to trying Crow for quite some time, as I was under the impression given the menu pricing that this would be a great place for a special evening out. Instead noise from the bar took over the whole space and the meal itself left a lot to be desired.

    The proscuitto wrapped chicken was outstanding! I don't usually go out in search of chicken due its rather bland palatabliity. Crow takes the most boring of meats and made a fantastic dish. I had to return here 3 times during my visit because of the quality of the food.

    We were once again impressed and spoiled by Crow. Our party of 4 loved everything we ordered. The prawn appetizer with creamy polenta, the gnocchi with mushrooms and squash and the gin cocktail with violet and lemon. Everything was amazing! Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Friendly but not too chatty. We talked it up to our friends and they were not disappointed. Thank you for another great experience at Crow!

    Often dine here before events at Seattle Center, downside is parking as if weather is poor mean parking twice. Menu offerings are not extensive but are varied with 5 starters, 4 soup/salad, 6-8 entrees. Pear, lettuce, hazelnut salad was large enough to split for two & nice light salad. Fall gnocchi is great - kale, mushrooms, squash. Pan roasted chicken had crisp skin but was moist. Green beans were squeaky (very lightly cooked) so if anyone has issues with chewing they should ask for a different vegetable. Chocolate tart was good. Only mix-up was on wine. We ordered French pinot, but American one with similar name was presented. Place is dark, we didn't catch the $25 more $ different bottle, both server and our mistake.

    My husband and I were in Seattle for a weekend getaway (we live in Portland) and found this spot near our hotel. We got the shrimp, chorizo and grits, wedge salad and chicken wrapped in prosciutto. It was DELICIOUS-so good that we had to come back the next night to try some other dishes!!! We live in a great food city so we can be hard to impress...but Crow is amazing. Day two we ordered the pork and the gnocchi-it was once again amazing! Great food, great environment and a great way to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary weekend!

    The complimentary oil/balsamic and bread was wonderful. The balsamic vinegar was plummy and smooth. Next, the cheese plate. Although only 3 cheeses (in my experience, should be five) were served, the figs, sweet cherries, jam and salty flatbread made up for it. A Cabernet paired with the BEST lasagna was great. I had the oatmeal stout ice cream sandwich. No big deal. I would've been happy without it. This place is worth checking out. It is on the loud side but it was a Friday night.

    Crow is a favorite of ours. The food is consistently good, the portions are large (often enough to share) and the prices are reasonable. It is not often that you find entrees this good for under $20. The specials add variety to the already changing menu.

    My husband & I were staying at the Hampton Inn prior to a cruise and they suggested Crow, just a couple of blocks away. We were totally knocked out by the food and service. We sat at the Chef's Counter and loved every minute, watching our food being meticulously prepared and chatting with the Chef who knew his stuff. We shared the bread salad with heirloom tomatoes as a starter and it was delicious. All the while I was watching my perfect piece of Filet Mignon being seasoned and seared and then finished off in the oven at the same time my husband's chicken wrapped in Prosciutto was also cooking in a delectable sauce. Both dishes when finished were gorgeous to look at, but outstanding in taste and tenderness.

    I was unhappy with the grilled salmon because it was clearly smoked or cured, and the menu never said so. That said, the chicken wrapped in prosciutto and the lasagna and the beef tenderloin were very well executed. The highlight of the meal, though, was our peach cobbler. To. Die. For. Notable wine list and very nice ambulance. I was pleased overall.

    This was my 5th time dining here and I have never been disappointed. This time I ordered the lamb chops and they were cooked perfectly and so flavorful. The cous cous on the side with tomatoes, cucumber and feta was also delicious. My husband had the lasagna, which he also really enjoyed. They have a small menu, but a good variety and generous portions. They also have interesting drink specials. The service is always great and it's fun to sit at the counter and watch the chefs preparing the meals.

    The staff at Crow completely surpassed our expectations. My wife and I dine at Crow whenever we visit Seattle, about 3-4 times per year. Last week we brought some family members from California to dinner at Crow, Chef's Counter seating. The chef's were very engaging.The food was outstanding; Grilled lamb chops, perfectly seasoned and cooked, and of course the prosciutto wrapped chicken: best chicken anywhere. Our server knew the menu, and made an excellent wine recommendation. They never disappoint at Crow.

Lovely chilled avocado soup, remarkable salads, sausage with ratatouille, lovely filet, and pasta was unique too...we tried several reds and the lemon custard topped it all off nicely. This is now our neighborhood fav! Thank you all at Crow!

    I did a lot of google searching before arriving in Seattle, but none of it revealed Crow. The hotel recommended it and we canceled a prior reservation to dine at Crow instead. Boy are we glad we did. Locally purveyed fare served by pleasant people in a beautiful space and only a short walk from the hotel. Other than getting the salmon special and not the Adam's sausage dish that I ordered everything was perfect. The salmon was exquisite so I didn't mind the mistake.

    I had made a dinner reservation for my family. Our waitress, although she was nice, first night and first table was ours. Let's just say there needed to be more training because she didn't put in one of our orders (although she was nice and comped us a dessert). The food had mixed reviews... Some really loved their dish like the lasagna and some not so much like the salmon special. Overall would not go back given the other great options in seatle.
