Excellent food, as always. But 45 minutes to get the chicken was ridiculous. I know it takes a bit longer, I've had it before. But waited far too long and never heard a word from the server.

The food and service were spectacular! The lasagne was huge, the halibut with risotto was amazing, and the desserts are not to be missed. We shared 3 and nearly died they were so good.

Love this restaurant - neighborhood gem. Truly one of the best in Seattle - under the radar! Came back two Saturdays in a row! I’m sold - I’ll be back very soon.

Not our best visit to Crow. Have been there many times before as we go every time we see a show at nearby McCaw Hall. Service (as always) was excellent but two things were different. One was the value. I checked my past recollections and found that in the past we had about the same thing; split an appetizer, two entrées, two cocktails, two glasses of wine and a split dessert. That came to $160 with tip. Never spend more than $110 before. Probably because my bride had the market price fish (a halibut that she loved) but we weren't told it was in excess of $40. Be aware.

My entrée was the worst I have had at Crow (in more than 10 visits). The lamb and pork ragu on bucatini was beyond dry. It was like getting a bowl of pasta with meat on the top. No sauce, just meat. Overcooked and dry. Hopefully this was an aberration. We will give them one more try because my bride's halibut was so good as were the cocktails.

Great tight little menu. In an increasingly expensive city, Crow offers one of the best combinations of quality food and true-craft beverage in Seattle.

The location works for groups coming all directions. Parking is on the street, within a half block and free of charge.

The room seems to be best for seating groups of four and under. There is limited seating at the open kitchen and the bar

Crow cocktails are created with attention to detail. The classics are built to win over newbies and please the experienced classic cocktail consumer. Crow's wine list had something for everyone and the bottle prices are very reasonable.

Those with diet concerns will have varying levels of success in finding what contents certain dishes contain depending on the server. This could be better managed.

Unpretentious yet groovy vibe and decor.
REALLY good food-had the butter lettuce/pear/walnut/blue cheese salad and the lasagna and both were excellent!
Too full to even think about dessert.
Good wine list.

I am always looking for great local places to dine at so after reading the reviews, I made a reservation for this place for a meal after an entire day of sightseeing. I really liked the atmosphere as the place is located in an old building which has been renovated to house the restaurant. It has a dark, almost industrial feel to it which I loved. I will say that on the weekends you should make a reservation as it does get quite busy. After being seated I ordered the Pan Seared chicken. It was brought out and it was absolutely perfect! The prosciutto wrapped around it was nice and crispy and provided an extra bit of seasoning to the superbly cooked chicken. The seasonal vegetable that it came with which was spinach and while I am not a fan I took a few bites and it wasn't bad. My only complaint was that my server disappeared and I didn't get a refill till she came to give me my check and I had to ask. Other than, it was a great dining experience and I certainly would go back.

Dinner with my daughter before the ballet. We could barely have a conversation, though we were seated at a small table. My ears actually rang for a while after leaving. The food is good but a very limited menu. The server did not bring our bread until we asked for it then I wished I had not bothered-so crusty and hard to chew.

Tasty food, good sized portions. The lasagne is "melt in your mouth" fresh, the tomato soup seemed to have a bit of curry for spice. Great place to eat before a performance at Seattle Center--reservations needed though as this is a popular spot for a great meal.

What a nice discovery! In a slightly out of the way spot near Seattle Center is this small, but exceptional restaurant we enjoyed immensely. Everything we had on this short, changeable menu was superb, full of flavor and well-thought-out. And the creative cocktails were excellent. We’ll be back!

We love this spot - we sat at the Chef's table in the back of the restaurant and enjoyed watching all the staging and preparation start-to-finish. Everything looks amazing - always hard to choose! Our meals were delicious, heathy and beautifully presented. This is our go-to spot when we have an event at the Seattle Center!

Although the room is a little worn/tired, the place is still cozy and the service excellent. They offer 25 bottles of wine for $25, and have some nice selections. The roasted chicken is still to die for (that juicy sauce!) and the chopped salad was delicious, fresh, and full of goodies.
This is a neighborhood spot you could visit on a regular basis.

I love Crow but will not come back if I am given a table like we had this time. It was pulled out into the aisle to accommodate a heater, was near the door so it was cold despite the heater and was worse than being stuck next to the kitchen.

This is a great restaurant for fine food, superb service and much fun. We eat here often for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. The lasagna is world class, the pork chop so tender and delicious; we also love the smashed potato and the tasty green beans. The Crow can be rather expensive but you receive an excellent meal and great service. When compared to other quality Seattle restaurants, it is excellent value. It can be quite noisy but that is part of the ambiance. Go there and enjoy the restaurant yourself!

Really lovely time! Food was delicious, and the service was attentive without being smothering or harassing. My only complaint was the table layout. They have three tables right by the front door, all of which are fairly close together - they actually tried to seat three different parties at the table next to us, and the first two requested a different table. Sitting that close to another party is a bit awkward, and you got hit with a blast of cold air every time the front door opened. Other than that, everything was perfect! They have a 25-for-20 deal on wine bottles Sunday (and Monday?) that is totally worth taking advantage of!

I brought my family here before a show at McCaw. While a bit noisy for my older parents, the rest of us didn't mind the noise level. The handcrafted cocktails were creative and delicious, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Our server was very sweet and helped ensure we got to our show on time. We will definitely be back! :)

The staff was very disorganized - we had reservations and had to wait about 10 minutes while the hostess tried to work with the couple that walked in ahead of us. We just asked to be seated at either the bar or the chef’s counter and there were two seats open at the bar. She said give her a minute to wipe it down and set the places then took off towards the back. While we waited for her to get back, two people walked in and took the bar seats without talking to anyone. Annoying! When the hostess got back several minutes later, she got us squared away but it was a lot of time standing in a very small entry area, standing next to a couple of tables they tucked back around the corner because there was nowhere else to stand. Once seated, service even at the bar was slow. Took us 15 minutes to get our first drink and every time we wanted to order more, it took several attempts to get the attention of the over worked bartender. All that said, the food was very good. The bartender was adept at mixing great cocktails and we were able to relax and enjoy the rest of the dinner. Maybe we hit on a bad / over busy night? Not sure, but since we were in from out of town we might not get a chance to find out! Food was worth the trip though - highly recommend going, just put on your patience panties!
