Love the feel of this little neighborhood restaurant but was very disappointed with the food. It’s exactly the restaurant I want to love but the food was really sub par.
Quaint restaurant in a cute part of town. From the moment I walked in the door the service was exceptional. The menu offered a lot of variety. We started with the steak tartare, followed by the filet mignon and the hangar steak. All were delicious. Definitely want to come back to try the burger and French onion soup.
Very average for above average price. Very disappointing for an Ethan Stowell restaurant.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Like a quaint French Bistro.
Red Cow was absolutely delicious and our server was lovely. I just want to sound a note of caution for fellow celiacs. I was assured the steaks + sauces were safe but I was sick for two days immediately after eating here. The food was amazing and absolutely worth a visit, but triple check with the kitchen that what you’re ordering is ok for celiacs.
Red Cow’s food is not complex - what you order is what you get - which means they have to do it right, and they do. We decided to test whether Ethan Stowell’s steakhouse could hit . . . not steak: yes. Oysters with a thoughtful mignonette; French Onion soup packed with flavor presented well; a juicy burger (this could have used some greens for bitterness or some acidic component to brighten it up); and a perfectly-cooked pork shank that rode the razor’s edge of too salty but had celery root purée, squash, and pomegranate seeds for balance. Service was exceptional - pleasant and timely. The atmosphere was both casual but adaptable to a couple looking for a romantic date; this is not a corporate business lunch hole-in-the-wall, just a good time. Red Cow is also an excellent value with an ultimate sticker about 60% of what I would expect from comparable cuisine at any “big box” steakhouse.
The food exceeded expectations and the service was excellent.
Hands down the best restaurant I’ve been to on a date in Seattle. We got taken care of so well and it doesn’t compare to other places.
This is just an awesome place Johnny is terrific and all of the waitstaff are as well. And the best burger in all of Seattle, beyond any doubt. All other food is really really good as welll⛄️🎅🎄😀😀😀
Great atmosphere, food was excellent and service exceeded both. We would definitely recommend and come back as well.
I love this place so much. The wait staff is warm and welcoming, the drinks and delicious and strong and the food is just wonderful. Duck fat fries!! My GOD. I went for dinner with a group of friends before the holidays and it was just lovely. Thank you. Ethan is the best.
This was not my first visit to Red Cow, certainly not my last... The steaks here are excellent and cooked to exactly the temperature (redness) you request. Each of the sauces for the steak is incredible, you really can't go wrong - there were four of us so we each got a different one. The frites and aioli were also excellent. Highly recommend if you want a steak and want a pretty homey environment.
Wonderful menu. Unique cocktails. Pleasurable service. Lovely meal.
This is our "go to" steakhouse in Seattle. Must try the marrow bones complete with marrow spoons designed specifically for this one dish. The frisee salad with lardons and the beet salad were excellent, as were the pommes frites. Of course, the main reason to go is for the steak. They do it right with perfect execution and just the right amount of char, cooked exactly to order. Very reasonably priced including a good selection of French Bordeaux.
Lovely Sunday night dinner with family visiting from out of town. Delicious from start to finish.
