    Hadn't been there since they remodeled. Love what they have done with it! They still have the brie salad and the duck appetizer on the menu. And were awesome as usual. Definitely will go back.

    Has lost the intimate dining feel that it once had. Have updated to a more stark urban feel. Service was good but less than I expected for a restaurant of this caliber. I felt like the menu was quite limited and they do not seem to highlight local specialties such as iowa pork. The duck appetizer is fantastic!!!!!

    After hearing from a few "foodies" the Red Crow was great and the menu was amazing after the renovation, I decided to give it a whirl. The menu looked good, promising but I just wasn't impressed with what I ordered. We had the duck appetizer which was OK. The corn bisque was the highlight of the meal, I'd definitely order it again. The scallops were overcooked and I wasn't and a fan of the kimchi fried rice. My friend ordered the New Orleans pasta and enjoyed it, I thought it was meh. The music was a little loud, I had trouble hearing my friend - and I'm 35 - noise levels usually don't bother me. The waiter was friendly and knowledgable but seemed to have too many tables and it took a really long time to even place our drink order.

    My wife and I hosted a childhood friend and his wife at your restaurant this past Friday evening. They currently live in Texas and travel the US extensively. As I had not seen him in over 36 years, we were looking for a location that provided great food and service, plus an atmosphere of intimacy that afforded the chance for extended conversation. His words describe our experience perfectly: "A world-class restaurant with fantastic food, excellent service, and an ambience that graciously served a very special and emotional occasion." I couldn't agree more wholeheartedly. Thank you Red Crow for making this night ever so special and memorable!

    There was a group of about 8-10 and it was so loud in there we could hardly hear each other. Also, both main courses were just okay, the wild boar was very flavorful but so tough we could hardly cut it. The sea bass was a little on the bland side. The duck breast appetizer was OUTSTANDING as usual. We've been there in the past, and this is the first time we would rate them as "just ok".

    Entrees range from $24-$45. Sides are à la carte. Meals start with an apéritif. Homemade bread is served hot with a different flavored butter each day. I typically start with either a cheese plate or the duck appetizer, move to the brie salad and finish with either the bone-in ribeye or the new orleans pasta...all depends on how hungry you are. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Anything you chose will be the best meal you've had in months. Drink prices are very reasonable given the atmosphere provided. Red Crow is the nicest restaurant in Quad-Cities by a wide margin.

    I can't say enough about the renovated Red Crow and staff. Took my wife for her birthday and Mary the bartender took care of us. She's extremely personable and knowledgeable and even mixed a unique martini for us. The food was to die for. We got the cheese plate as an appetizer and loved it. They provide jam, leeks, honey, and pecans as pairs. The salmon and vegetables were amazing and very filling, but, guys.. the filet was out of this world. I've never experienced a steak so tender in my entire life. That steak made a Ruth's Chris filet seem like a strip of jerky. There must be some black magic involved because I don't know how else they could do it. Long story short, go. Now. And get the homemade candy bar for dessert!!

    We're only in town once a year and have made Red Crow Grille a tradition. Hearing it was under new ownership or management, we were worried, but it was all for naught! The food is wonderful and creative, the restaurant looks as good as ever, and the staff is great. We brought friends with us for the first time and they enjoyed it, too. We all had something different and everyone enjoyed their meal, and tastes from everyone else's plates.

    I was given a gift certificate for the Red Crow Grille when I retired from my work. My wife and I were excited to go to this restaurant which was new to us. Our waiter was excellent and explained the dishes and gave us suggestions Everything we had was good but not great. The prices were the highest I have ever encountered in the area. For the cost, I expected to be knocked off my feet by the food. Not the case. Experience was enjoyable but will not return.

    The restaurant was beautiful. I was really looking forward to dining there. The food was interesting but didn't have anything that stood out. Felt like there were trying too hard to be different but missed the mark. There were no vegetarian options and there wasn't a dish that wasn't fat laden. Service was very good.

    Was cautious about the change the ownership but pleasantly surprised. Loved the remodeling, very clean and welcoming now. Food was very good. Was a little surprised at the size of vegetarian option, quite a small portion, but it was very good. Felt it was a little overpriced for the amount of food. Salad was excellent as well as shrimp appetizer. Dessert was very creative. Had made reservation through open table and put note that we were celebrating our 35 anniversary. Was very disappointed that this was not acknowledged by either the hostess or server. I guess I should have brought this up at the time but felt I shouldn't have to as I put the note in the reservation.

    The food was tasty and good, as was my own mother's meatloaf and white bread. But it was unremarkable and forgetable. It was a Mother's Day brunch so the menu was expected to be a bit lame and unexciting. And it met those expectations. Therefore it was too expensive unless one is inclined to make multiple round-trips to load up; which isn't our inclination. But, the food was fine and we left full so that counts for something. We might try again on a nonoccasion when a more memorable menu is probably available.

    Red Crow Grill has a sterling reputation in our area but in the past, the cost has relegated it to a special occasion restaurant. Their Mother's Day Buffet, however, was $24 so was an great opportunity for us to enjoy the nicest restaurant in the area. We weren't disappointed. The buffet was simple but everything was delicious! I would have appreciated one more small dessert to choose from, as we Mom's enjoy our sweets!

    GF and I went there on May 10th. Was a great experience. Chris was our server and did fantastic. Was a very funny individual and took great care of us. We got the duck and lobster apps, my GF got the brie salad, and I got the "corn bread" soup (can't remember the menu title). For entrees, she got the Halibut and I got the special. I think the best thing of the night was definitely the 4oz lobster tail app. They need to turn that dish into an entree. The special I got seemed very over salted, I didn't enjoy it much. My GFs Halibut was absolutely amazing as well. The soup and duck were great, but again, the star was the lobster tail app.

    Food was truly memorable. Our server Brandon was both patient and attentive, and quite knowledgeable about every dish on the menu. He was honest about his preferences, and helpfully suggestive in pairing a wine to go with ours. (Which was quite the feat in fact, since the four of us at the table shared four very different entrees: pork loin, beef loin, New orleans pasta, halibut). One last detail: Two folks at our table had been drinking water without ice. Another server had come by and tried to be helpful by re-filling all of our glasses with ice water. The next time ours was walking by, he noticed the issue immediately, and replaced the glasses without any of us having to say so.

    The restaurant has recently reopened after a remodel and menu revamp. The new decor is lovely although a bit loud with big groups. We were so excited to try the new menu but were really disappointed with our main course. The menu is small. The place was really busy on a Saturday night with several large parties. A restaurant can be busy but I would expect our waitress to come to the table and make sure we don't need anything while we wait. We were a table of two and my course (the special) was seared tuna and sausage were cold (not just warm but actually cold). When we tried to flag the waitress down to remedy the situation she was nowhere to be found. We will try give them another try but I'm not sure that it deserves the high ratings.

    I had the most tender sirloin steak I've ever had. The asparagus and onions paired up with steak beautifully and were perfectly prepared. The French wine I ordered was amazing. The Candy bar dessert was underestimated by its looks, but packed a punch of toffee and chocolate to our delight. The overall experience was highly commendable. The server was awesome and had the perfect attitude and wanted to be there to make our dinner one to come back for. I would highly recommend this establishment for any occasion. The new owners made very good choices in the way the restaurant is laid out including the lighting. I wish this restaurant very much success and I would be very happy to come back to support my local establishment.
