Restaurant was very accommodating as a place to eat before attending the opera. Our very pregnant server was extremely nice and very helpful. Restaurant staff completely understands timing requirements for pre-opera dining.

Erin, our server, made the whole visit go higher in my estimation. Everything was fine but she has that sunny disposition that just makes everything shine brighter.
Lasagna worthy of more visits.

I had the seafood special and it was excellent. The service was somewhat slow. We were headed to the opera and concerned about the time. Our window looking out at the street created a very pleasant ambiance. I am really glad we discovered a pleasant dining spot before the opera.

Fantastic neighborhood gem that is worth the trip! Beautiful decor, pleasant staff and amazing food! While the menu is sparse, everything we ate was ethereal.
Starting with Manila clams, perfectly cooked and served in a bowl of decadent broth brimming with garlic and chorizo. Do yourself a favor and order extra brad for soaking up this heavenly liquid.
For the main we shared the lasagna. A gargantuan slice, served with a beautiful homemade gravy that complements the pasta perfectly. Hand made lasagna noodles with perfectly cooked beef and a wonderful BechaMel. Ask for extra sauce, it is worth it.
For dessert, we enjoyed the zucchini cake with toffee ice cream. Absolutely incredible. Everything from start to finish at this restaurant was perfect. I will certainly be back next time I am in Seattle

This is a great restaurant before a show. The food is always very good and the service was excellent. The only criticism I have is that we had 5:30 dinner reservations before a show. When we arrived, the restaurant was not full. We were seated at a middle table and asked if we could be seated at the corner table as it was a bit more quiet. The host said emphatically - no, that is reserved only for parties of 3. We understood that, so had no issue with the host's statement. However, about 10 minutes later, a couple (only 2 people) were seated at that table. It really felt like a lie to us and initially it ruined our experience. But the server and the food were excellent so it made up for the experience.

The Fall menu had just been released the day before we dined and the majority of our table gravitated towards the House Brined Pork Chop with Spaetzle, which was (OMG) delicious and a huge chop. The other member of our party had the Fall Mushroom Risotto which we all had a spoonful of and were also quite pleased. Our server was wonderful and provided us with good suggestions throughout. We did opt for a medley of desserts, but weren't wowed by any of those offerings. Still good, but paled in comparison to the actual meals. Crow is a short walk (~10 minutes) to the Seattle Opera/Ballet, Seattle Rep and Cornish Playhouse for those of you looking for pre-theatre dining. Just let your server know you're trying to catch a show and they'll try and accommodate. We will definitely be back.

Another fantastic meal at the Chef's Counter, this time before the ballet to celebrate our anniversary. The food is wonderful, deeply satisfying and absolutely delicious. The only possible drawback is that the portion sizes are slightly too generous to have 3 courses - in our case, sharing the starter - without feeling slightly stuffed!

It was really a big disappointment...
OpenTable reservation asked me if there were any special requests and I wrote down that it was my mother's 60th birthday. There were no signs or even heads up indicating that they have prepared anything for my request. I understand if the restaurant doesn't do these type of things but if the sever could have told me ahead of time when we entered...it would have been fine.
I had to go ask the server separately and she positively said she'll bring out a cake with a candle for my mother. In the end...nothing happened and she came up with a check and a dessert menu. I looked at her face trying not to let my mother know about the surprise and the server mentioned that they have a chocolate and another cake in a different flavor pointing at the menu...
I just told everyone we should just pay and leave at that point...
The special occasion that me and my wife prepared for my mother was plain simple ruined this evening.
I really don't recommend this place for family dinners...

Crow has a small menu but does everything really well. It is not over priced, which is unusual for a good restaurant in Seattle these days. The service, food and cocktails were all excellent. We especially recommend the chicken dish.

Very nice. The food was excellent. Got the peach and green bean salad, pan roasted chicken and the hanger steak. Dessert was the blackberry trio. All were very good. It was within walking distance from our hotel . Service was good but not exceptional. Prices were good, not too expensive. Would return and also recommend to friends.

We are visiting Seattle and wanted a great local nearby restaurant, we walked up 5th to Crow from the Seattle Center. Our server was friendly and recommended cocktails and told us about the specials, we got a lovely bottle of wine and cocktails and started with the chees plate. Some os us ordered the lasagna while she warned us it takes about 30 mins to make very much worth the wait. The Fish was a sockeye salmon also delicious. Definitely think this a fabulous place tucked near the Space Needle.

We were late and in a hurry, frazzled from traffic. The wait staff immediately got me a nice cocktail and a big glass of water, helping lift my mood considerably. She knew I was short on time and guided us on best options for what worked best in our time frame. Food came promptly thereafter. Ribs were tender and sauced with just the right spicey-sweet blend. Salads were fresh and brightly dressed. Lasagna had a light, flavorful tomato sauce with enough meat and cheese to make it feel substantial but not heavy.

Staff was so nice when I called to say we were delayed and would be late - 10pm! Service was quite nice and food terrific - lamb and salmon, perfectly cooked. Might have been louder earlier but noise level (I am sensitive to it) was fine when we were there. Easy to converse. Liked the look, the vibe, the local neighborhood feel.

Planned a night out to see a film at SIFF so we decided to try someplace new to us for dinner. First time at Crow and we were both very happy with the experience. My wife had the veggie tart and I had the roast chicken. Flavorful and well-prepared. Service was terrific and the ambiance was good. We’ll definitely be back.

My husband and I have been coming to Crow for about three years. We visit Seattle from eastern WA about once a year. The lasagne is to die for and the roast chicken is ridiculously good. The wine selection is very good, and the bread/baguette is world-class. We find we can't go wrong here with the food (and can't stop thinking about the lasagne when we're away; I don't even like sausage, but this pasta dish, with sausage, is one of the most delicious recipes on the planet). The food is never disappointing, but the waitresses have always been less than warm and friendly and not very attentive each of the four times we've eaten here. Service is leisurely, and even though they knew it was my birthday at the front desk, the waitress never acknowledged that. Not a big deal. I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't get to eat at Crow. Make a reservation and enjoy!
