 (Seattle)·Dined on 11 November 2017

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!

We dined here before a Friday evening opera. The waitress was kind enough to let us know which entrees required extended time. Food was lovely, service was timely, efficient and friendly. We had plenty of time for pre-drinks, dinner and dessert.

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

I went to Crow with a girlfriend for dinner and it did not disappoint. We like to share so we can experience several items. We had the beet salad with ricotta and butternut squash, it might be one of my favorite salads. We also had the lasagna, my friend isn't a huge lasagna fan, but she truly enjoyed every bite. It was also a large portion, so I would suggest sharing. All in all, great!

Our party of seven received great service, even several visits from the owner/manager, who made sure we had plenty of time to make it to the show we had tickets for that night. The food was universally delicious, from appetizers and specialty cocktails, to salads, sides, and entrees. Wow to the lasagna, prosciutto wrapped chicken, smashed potatoes cake, shrimp appetizer, salmon entree, ribeye steak entree, and heirloom tomatoe panzanella. Each person said they'd eat here again, and our experience was worth the trip from north of Seattle. Completely satisfied our group of 7. Well done!

Have enjoyed eating at Crow several times this past month. Staying in the neighborhood, this is the best place around. Friendly, low key, really delicious, high quality meals. It's a small menu that covers a range of proteins and somewhat limited veg options, but as an omnivore there was plenty to choose from. After a few visits, I have tried just about everything on the menu and did not find a dish I didn't like. As a frequent diner, my only wish is that the specials would change more often. Same soup and fish option were on the specials menu all month. Maybe change it up a bit more frequently? A great neighborhood restaurant!

One of the best steaks around! I seriously would compare it to Daniel's easily. Wonderful meal! I love that the menu changes but their standars menu meals are always tasty. One of my favorite spots in the city.

I don't get to Seattle often but when I do I make a point of getting to the Crow. Could not recommend this place any higher. Pan Roasted chicken is as good as anything anywhere. Lasagna is crazy good. The place has a very cool vibe and some very reasonably priced wine. Love this place and it never disappoints.

Dinner was good. I had the gnocchi which was delicious and kept well. The Caprese salad was also just right. The potato cakes were good. Corn cake started off well at the beginning of the bite with the promise of cornbread and then went into a disappointing direction. Pork was excellent. Friendly service. Recommend.
