    We had a problem with the service at Crow. The waitress apologized but neither the manager or the owner did anything about it. If a restaurant doesn't want to make a customer happy (we made them aware that we weren't happy!) I don't like to return there. I do not recommend this restaurant based on our experience. There are other choices on Queen Anne where the restaurant is motivated to give good customer service.

    If you don't need to see the food you're served, then Crow will do you well. While We were grateful for the candle light that enabled us to read the menu, the inability To distinguish duck meat from duck fat made for some regrettable eating moments. An enormous and bland green salad with little dressing? While the bread is incredibly yummy, The inability to see the food we ordered seemed, well, odd.

    I've been meaning to visit for Crow for years and finally dined here on Valentine's Day. Everything was wonderful, I can't believe it's taken me so long to eat here. The food was amazing, everything had such intense flavor. The pan roasted chicken was one of the best things I've eaten in years. The service was outstanding as well. Definitely plan to return!

    The Crow had been recommended to us, but we found the noise level so high that we had great difficulty talking to each other across a small table for two. The sauce for the vegetarian main course option seemed tasty at first, but actually was far too salty. The cheese plate 'for two' was rather mean on the cheese (small pieces of only two types of cheese).

    Went on a Monday eve at 8pm. Got a table immediately but soup/salad took forever!! Disappointed they were out of bread, and that they didn't bother to tell us until we asked. Would have loved to scoop up some of the delicious cauliflower purée soup with their fresh bread. Maybe they need to keep some backup loaves in the freezer, or make a quick run to nearby Metropolitan Market? As always the pan-roasted proscuitto-wrapped chicken entree was fantastic, and we also liked the lamb and mahi-mahi.

    First time at Crow. We loved it! Started with El Chupacabra cocktail. Crustini and parmasan pudding. Seared Scallops and Procutto Wraped Chicken. Waiter was great and service was really good. Menu is nice and small so you know what they do is very fresh with focus to detail. We will definitely be back!

    We sat at the Chef's Counter and had fun watching them prep the meals. Our favorites were the perfectly cooked and seasoned seared scallops with Brussels sprouts, bacon, and chestnuts. Prior to this visit, I wasn't a fan of Brussels sprouts, but this dish was superb, and now I love Brussels sprouts. Husband's roasted chicken wrapped with prosciutto was crispy, moist, and delicious. The English sticky toffee pudding was the best we've ever had. Service was excellent as well.

    I was a little disappointed by our dining experience at Crow - mostly with the lack of attention to details I expect from a nicer restaurant. The roast chicken was very good but the cassoulet was a bit salty. We shared a salad and they neither split the salad for us nor provided us with an extra plate. No offer to hang up our coats. No effort to discuss the menu. The service was courteous but cold and almost disinterested. There were long delays between stops by the wait staff, few if any smiles or small courtesies. For the money we spent I expect a better dining experience.

    The restaurant is spacious (almost cavernous), but still friendly and intimate in a peculiar way. We arrived pretty close to kitchen closing, but were promptly seated, and the server was very attentive and helpful. Loved the $20 for bottle of wine.. some decent wines too. To help even more, the server was able to manage a bottle not on the $20 list for us for that price so happy about that. The food was good, though not exceptional in my opinion. I had the cassoulet, and it was quite flavorful, but I think could have been presented in a manner to make it more attractive. The other dishes on the table were also fairly good, and a decent place for Vegetarian options, as 2 folks in my party were vegetarians, and liked what they got.

    We patronize Crow every year before we see The Nutcracker. Every year, the service has been great and so has the food. This year, however, there could have been some improvements. My wife and I invited two other couples to dinner who had never been to Crow. We all had a great time and our server, Roger, was excellent. Three of us ordered the tenderloin, two ordered the scallops, and my wife ordered the lasagna. Everything came out great…except the lasagna. It had obviously been precooked, frozen or refrigerated, and reheated. The middle was cool and the edges were extremely hot. My wife didn’t mention this until after the ballet so I did not give Crow a chance to remedy the situation. I’m sure they would have had they known about it.

    We had a party of 7 dining after the ballet. Sat down and the waiter was very good- not all over us for ordering this or that- just laid back but very courteous and professional. Food was outstanding- we ordered chicken, lamb shank and lasagna- had mussels/clams as an appetizer. Would recommend this as a great place to go that has everything- ambiance, service and great food! Love it and would say it is one of my favorite places in Seattle.

    On paper, Crow looks great, and our first meal there 1 year ago was quite pleasant. However, 2 subsequent meals have been sub-par for the price point and the service very slow. The space is always smoky, despite high ceilings and fans. It doesn't seem like anyone in the kitchen is passionate about the food they make.

The menu is limited but as the waitresses stated they don't offer a lot of food butwhat they do offer they do well. Upon her recommendation myself and a friend ordered the tenderloin. This had to be the best tenderloin I had ever had. Very please with our service food and the atmosphere. I would return for sure.

    With a small, rotating menu Crow has delighted me twice with unique combinations. Standard on the menu is the roasted chicken- so flavorful. So good, in fact, I came back to test out a special: trout on a bed of Brussels sprouts, bacon and apple. I'm no sprouts fan but took a gamble and am glad I did. The crunchy mix with the fish was delightful! I'll be back!
