    My wife and I enjoyed a Friday night dinner consisting of salad (Bibb lettuce and the brie salad), entrees (Oko King salmon and the chef's feature, barbequed pork rib eye) with a bottle of Pinot Noir. The food was well prepared and with complex layers of taste. Would definitely recommend this place for a special treat.

    It had been awile since we had dined at the Red Crow, but we had always enjoyed this restaurant in the past . The remodel is nice, but we missed the intimacy of the past. However, the food made up for it. We both felt it was even better than before. Can't wait to return.

    I had asked for a table for 6 where we could have business conversation and they seated us in a separate room that was lovely. Round table with white linens, waiter that was pleasant, knowledgeable and careful about needing to interrupt. Food was amazing and all guests were thrilled. The bar was busy, and beautiful, and there were couples enjoying romantic dinners. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, service was spot on. Restaurant is classy and beautful in appearance. Highly recommend. It will not disappoint.

    We have been to Red Crow Grille several times but had not been there since their remodel. Another wonderful dining experience, knowledgeable waitress, quiet setting, awesome food, and great desserts to share. Both the steak dishes and seafood were wonderfully prepared. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.

    We came for dinner last week celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday. Things went fairly well until the entrees arrived. Two of our were lukewarm on cold plates. Two of them were rewarmed and ended up overcooked. I had the lamb and as I was trimming it out there were two large pieces of fat without meat attached on my plate. Needless to say I had very little edible lam. To their credit, my dinner was comped. They sent a aged dessert-not even a candle! Needless to say we will not be returning.

    We were disappointed with a recent dinner. The wine, salads, appetizers and deserts were great. Our server was very good. The expensive entrees were not appetizing. I had the salmon and my wife had the scallops. We don't plan to return and won't recommend the Red Crow Grille to friends. Do they have a new chef?

    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!

    First time. Server was gracious in helping us find a wine to our taste. Bisque and salad were delicious, but entrees were even better. Plus service was attentive and efficient. A la cart was a little expensive so will keep this restaurant in mind for special occasion.

    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.

    Waitress recommended two entrees since we had never been. The loin was amazing and the New Orleans pasta was bad. So spicy and greasy. Also my side of asparagus was burnt. Ordered a duck appetizer and it was also burnt. Our waitress Lindsay was amazing and was a great source of knowledge and Info about our food

    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.

    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.
