Crow Ratings and Reviews
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! :)
Love, love, love Crow! It's our go-to restaurant when we are going to the Ballet or when we want a delicious meal on Queen Anne. We love the food and the people! We eat at the chef's counter most of the time and really enjoy watching them prepare delicious food! Their menu is wonderful and the food is hearty. Great flavor combinations and beautiful presentation. You won't be disappointed!
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!
We arrived early on Friday pm and it was quite busy already. Everything was quite good. Less than 5 stars as the service gave us our check before we had finished for the night and it took us a while to get the right waitress back to request additional drinks. Lovely creole dish.
Oysters were fresh and tasty. Polenta was creamy and yummy. Bartender could have used some help which he did get after awhile. The lasagna looked fantastic and the customer eating it remarked it was the best ever so we’ll try that next time, Close and easy walk to the theaters at Seattle Center. Staff was super friendly and helpful we will definitely go back.
Dinner before the Rep. This is a "usual" for us before Seattle Center events - theater, opera, ballet. There was a popular opera - Cosi Fan Tutti - and Two Trains Running at the Rep, so they had a pre event full house. We ate at the chef's counter and watched the show of five seven entries being grilled, baked, finished constantly. Nothing was missed in the fast production and the dance of it was fascinating. I had the jambalaya and she had the cassoulet, both outstanding. Great place for a filling meal on a cold winter evening.
Difficult to write a review... the food may well be great. However, we didn't receive anything but salad, bread and wine before we had to leave. We arrived maybe 10 minutes late (absolutely NO later than that) for a 5:30 reservation. Our order was taken relatively quickly. We said--up front--that we had to leave at 7:00 for the opera. Bread, wine, and salad came out but nothing...nothing...else...although we mentioned our time restriction several times. At 7:00 we asked for the check, paid, and left. First world problem, I know, but it was a three hour opera. This is a caution for anyone with a time constraint.
Shared a great meal with a friend. Affordable options for wine by the glass and several items on the menu we were interested in - it was difficult to choose! The service was outstanding. I’d highly recommend a visit to Crow but make sure to make reservations!
Always a fun spot for a cozy dinner. Limited number of entrees, but you can also make a nice meal out of the starters/appetizers. Had a wonderful Old Fashion, mussels (with a generous serving of garlic bread), dessert and port. Perfect place for pre-theater at Seattle Center.
We had four adults at 5pm. We were headed after to a 7:30 show at the Seattle Center. We parked at the Center Parking Garage and walked about five blocks to Crow. We were seated joyfully on time. Our service was spot on. We had cocktails, appetizers then Entrees. Overall a great dining experience. I had a local Vodka Martini, Mussles, Oysters, Crusty bread (olive oil & balsamic) and for dinner I had their famous Lasagna and a bottle of Sangiovese Toscana. I opted out of desert. The open kitchen is fun to watch.
My husband and I hadn’t had an upper scale (yet affordable) meal since Christmas Eve. At the end of dinner, when my husband said, “I’d definitely come back here,” I felt a secret internal triumph because, for reasons too lengthy to go into here, we don’t venture outside our local area much. It took us 1.5 hours to get here from the western side of the Puget Sound and it was well worth a drive and/or a ferry ride! Keep in mind, we had an 8 pm dinner reservation on a Friday night, so don’t expect quiet conversation (not a bad thing, just something to be aware of as I initially had an “oh no” moment when I walked through the door to find it quite the hustle & bustle of sound). It all turned out a-ok because the entire meal and the service was stellar. We will be returning and it goes into our Top 5 places to eat in the states west of the Wasatch mountain range.
Second visit. Believe me if 'Crow' wasn't an hour drive for us, we would be regulars. A great lower Queen Ann neighborhood gem. Great wine list. True bartender behind the bar. Make your seating at the Chef's Counter if watching the magic happen is your thing. We both had the lasagna last time. This time I went with the braised beef rib and the wife had the prosciutto wrapped chicken. Both items were absolutely sumptuous!!! Do yourself a treat and make your reservation NOW!
We stopped in the Crow with no expectations - it was just across from our hotel. The food and service were impeccable and my husband is still raving about his ice cold Manhattan and fresh oyster appetizer. I had a great vegetarian dish of zucchini ‘noodles’ with ricotta stuffed peppers and chanterelles. Definitely recommend this restaurant!
As longtime customers we have probably dined there a few dozen times over the years. The most recent experience, on a Saturday night, left us feeling unwelcome and disappointed. By the time we finally ate our meal, we were ready to leave and not return. Our server clearly did not want to be there, and made no effort whatsoever to do anything for us. We had to flag another staff member down to ask ask for everything that we needed (ice, pepper, wine, the check), but even then nothing was apparently relayed to her, or she ignored it. We noticed the adjacent tables in her section were also grumbling. If there was front of the house management working that night, you would not know it. In addition, the kitchen seemed to be having problems because the food was very slow to arrive. A nearby table who arrived 20 min after us ordered the same salad and entrées that we did. They received their meals and ate them completely while we were still waiting for ours. I flagged our server down and inquired about our entree status and commented that other tables with the same order had already finished. All I got was side-eye. Not the Crow we had grown to love. :(
Visiting Seattle and happen to stay in a hotel nearby. What a find! One of the best meals I’ve had in over two years. Cozy ambience but the food was spectacular. I had zucchini noodles in a saffron broth with roasted vegetables and mushrooms. Extraordinary! My husband had lasagna. Huge and so tasty. To finish off dinner we had huckleberry warm donuts with ginger ice cream. Are you kidding? Fantastic . Will go back next time in Seattle
