Amazing food and location.
Checked out Crow for the first time during Restaurant Week. Even at full price this place is worth revisiting time and again but the $30 for 3 course Restaurant Week deal is outstanding. There was no skimping on options or portions. They even pair it with a wine list of great wines for $20/bottle or less. Such a deal! The sautéed prawns & chorizo starter was amazing, with a delicious red sauce and creamy polenta. The lasagna was delightful and HUGE. You could easily share it between two. We also had pan-roasted chicken which was perfection if you're looking for something lighter than pasta. Dessert included key lime pie and sorbet with raspberries and rhubarb, both excellent. We'll be back soon!
I had a reservation for my friends birthday that booked over a week in advance . A party of 8. We were asked to leave an hour and 40 mins into our dinner because they had another large party coming. We felt that was pretty inappropriate. We spent quite a bit of money that night and our server's tip definitely suffered as a result...
A consistent winner. Good food, good service, good time.
The food was great. The pear sald was beautiful and delicious. The service was attentive but not cloying,
We came here for dinner before a ballet performance and dinner at Crow was a delight. The beer and wine list was excellent, but we were most impressed with dinner. I have never been excited about chicken, but the pan-roasted chicken was crisp on the outside, juicy and well flavored inside. The spring risotto was also lovely and flavorful.
This is my third time at Crow. Each time, the service has been exceptional. Mostly, the food fits that category too, although my halibut was a bit overcooked this time. I loved the cabbage and orange salad accompanying this dish.
My friend and I had a great experience at Crow, highly recommended. Fantastic server, great ambiance. It was a tad high on noise, but the food and ambiance made up for it.
We had tried i the past to eat at CROW but couldn't get in due to the waiting time. This time we had reservations and were delighted to have had the experience of eating there. Although it has the same problem with noise that most restaurants seem to have of late, it was manageable and the excellent food made up for it. Service was attentive without being overbearing and we all enjoyed our dinners. Great place with excellent wait staff.
This was our first visit to Crow. We went during restaurant week as soon as they opened so it was quiet and easy to talk. The restaurant is spacious and has great windows that let in a lot of light. We sat at the chefs counter and it was fun to watch the meals being prepared. The food was very good. I ordered the pork belly. The Pork was OK, not a lot of flavor, but the carrots it came with were delicious. My husband ordered the chicken and it was fantastic. We both ordered the shrimp and grits appetizer. I could have had this for a meal and been very happy. We will come back again before or after an event near Seattle Center. Overall we really enjoyed our experience.
Crow always has fabulous food! The space is dark and a little loud but in a small group you can still have a conversation.
I've never had a bad meal at Crow. The Lasagna doesn't disappoint and the rest of the menu is seasonal and offers fresh Northwest-inspired dishes.
We had the asparagus soup, lasagna meat platter and fish of the day. All very good.
We saw on OpenTable this thing about the "chef's counter" and we opted for it, and we Loved it! Watching them cook is like watching the well-oiled machine at Revel in Fremont. Nice long bar that seated about 4 - 5 couples, where you get to watch them cook up magic. The service was warm and engaging and we loved it. We had their 2 classic dishes - the prosciutto wrapped chicken and the Lasagna. Both were awesome. Drinks were creative and yummy.
Our 3d visit to this neighborhood gem. Oysters , Chicken and Beef Tenderloin all great . Lasagna is spicy . As always, service is attentive , efficient and personable . Highly recommended.
Food was decent (some good, some not quite good enough. But the noise was overbearing. We had to shout across the table to hear each other. Altogether unpleasant.
We had a large group before the ballet. With the benefit of a reservation from OpentTable we were able to get in, get seated, get our order in and have a great meal. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The pork chop and steak were crowd favorites as was the hummus and roasted garlic appetizer.
Definitely will use Crow as our launching off point for future evenings at the Seattle Center.
Crow is a terrific place to eat on lower Queen Anne. My only complaints are that the seats are al rock hard straight up benches and it's not very comfortable. The lack of soft surfaces inside also make it much noisier so it's a little hard to have conversations. But the food and service are excellent.
This is one of the few restaurants where the baked chicken is a must, with it's perfectly crispy skin and juicy flavors served over fresh vegetables. Enjoy!
I've been to The Crow several times and they always seem to impress me. There is a simplicity to their menu but if you dive a little deeper you'll see the intricacies of each dish. This is my favorite place to eat in Lower Queen Anne.
Eight of us had a great meal, good wine and lively conversation before going to the Seattle Rep to see "The Comparables". The service was very prompt. Everyone ordered a different main course. All came as ordered. Wine list was not lengthy but very nice. We were separated from the main dining area by a glassed wall that allowed us to talk without disturbing others. I had the risotto which was delicious. I highly recommend this gem near the Seattle Center.
Crow is terrific. It has not gone the way of being trendy, or deconstructing dishes to make them new. The food is wonderful and reliable. It is always delicious. I had lasagne and it melted in my mouth. Smooth and creamy. The braised short ribs had been slow cooked and were falling from the bone. These came with mashed potatoes. Generous portions left no room for the tempting dessert menu.
the noise level, while louder than some, left us able to chat comfortably. All in all, a lovely evening.
Go and experience it yourself. Limited menu. Sunday isn't a good day since they are out of many items. Didn't used to be that way.
Great tasting vegetables and seafood. Nicely presented. Preparations highlighted the fresh ingredients instead of burying them with too many flavors. Not a place for young children.
We had the Risotto which was delicious and the lasagna, amazing one of those meals you really want to savor. Service is less crisp than Dhalia, yeah I know they're not related but it's late. Great location for the Center. Go you won't be disappointed. The Car crash was also tasty.
Food great; service great. Lighting terrible. Can not see menu or food.
If you want to have a terrible service and pay a fortune for it, Crow is your place to go. Since we arrived, we had to wait 15 minutes at the door for the hostess to come welcome us, despite having a reservation. The waitress at our table seemed like she was being forced to work that night and didn't care for giving a good service at all. The heating in the restaurant was so high that we had to go out the restaurant three times to cool down a bit.
We eat at Crow whenever we go to McCall Hall. They are consistently good. This time they had a mushroom risotto that was fantastic! We appreciate that the crew that works there stays with the restaurant. It's a sign of good management. Go when you can!
We were seatted close to the door and was not great with people coming in and out
I've been here twice now, and it's always a great experience. Good food and drinks, and delicious oysters! Highly recommend the lasagna dish, and when available, the cassoulet is excellent. I would love to return and sit at the bar looking into the kitchen area.
everything was great except for the cold air coming in through the front door (noticeable only at tables by the door)
Food was great and wait staff professional and courteous. A great place for dinner before the opera or theater.
Our group tried 4 different entrees and I must say, they were all very delicious. Seafood special, lamb, prociutto wrapped chicken, and another dish i don't remember the name of... absolutely worth the visit!
It wasn't too crowded for a Saturday night, but don't let the emptiness deter you from trying it out.
Enjoyed eating for the third time, the food is always outstanding. Service, while polite, was a little rushed and inattentive as they were clearly understaffed, hard to believe on a Saturday night when there was a large event at the Opera House. It took a long time just to get some bread to nibble with my wine, while pondering the meal, it actually arrived AFTER the first food order.
Noise levels were also a problem, it was simply too loud to hold a comfortable conversation with my dinner guest. I heartily recommend this restaurant, but wish they'd provide adequate staffing and appropriate noise levels for special occasions.
I went inteding to have their awesome lasagna, but when I heard they were featuring scallops, I had to order them. While the scallops were done supurbly, it was served with a very funky vegetable hash made up of shredded brussels sprouts, bacon and are you ready, chestnuts :-(. When they saw me picking out the chestnuts, they redid a new dish of hash without the chestnuts for me, so kudos for that! They need to lose the chestnuts permanently and try mushrooms or just serve up in a different way. Chestnuts are nasty tasting and just have a very odd mouthfeel to them and don't know why anyone would serve them in a dish in a nice restaurant.
Wish I had stuck with my intent to have the lasagna. Now I know better. Stay with what is dynamite tasting. Their lasagna rocks the house.
Our party of 3 couples had a wonderful meal and delightful experience at Crow. Among us we had lamb shank, cassoulet, pan-fried scallops and risotto, and all were executed beautifully. Friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff.
We visited Crow in its first year, and weren't overly impressed. This time it was with friends after a show at the Rep, and it was definitely more impressive. We'll be back for a third time for the deciding vote, and this time we won't wait so long to return.
I have been wanting to share the flavors of a great cassoulet with my partner and he loved it. The specialty drink menu and wine list provide opportunities for different tastes as well. We will return.
Nice and promt service. Loved the atmosphere and oh was the food delicious. The gen in the neighborhood.
Crow is consistently excellent, both food and service. Once you get there (after a few detours in and around Mercer Street), you will be pleased. Get the lasagna!!
