Fabulous chef!

My girl friend and I split the beef tenderloin. Delicious. I got the 'white salad' with anchovies celery and fennel. Dressing was citrusy and delicious.

Crow certainly is convenient to McCaw Hall - if you're attending an event and want to avoid the traffic, stop by Crow for at least a craft cocktail after the show. Well worth it. Crow has a diverse menu and the selections we had were just ok - nothing out of the ordinary. And, as some stated - the salad... More

This place was some of the best food we had in Seattle. Its only about a 10 minute walk from the Space Needle and worth it! Great food for meat eaters and even for me a vegetarian! We had an amazing popcorn ice cream dessert that was to die for! If you're looking for a great place to enjoy fine... More

If you are attending an event at the Seattle Center and wish to have a great dining experience, consider walking a couple blocks away from Seattle Center to eat at Crow. I have eaten there several times and I feel that the experience gets better each time we visit. The atmosphere is modern and there is a bar off the... More

This was convenient to McCaw Hall before the ballet. Unfortunately several things fell considerably short of expectations. Firstly it was very cold in the restaurant and two of our party had to leave coats and scarves on throughout the meal. The Crow Cheese Plate was extremely disappointing. The Camembert was straight out of the fridge and not of high quality... More

Not much to say, everything was great - wine, food, service, ambiance and decor. Great place to visit if you are close to the Pacific Center/EMP (it's about 5 min walk). Reservations recommended as it does get crowded.

My friend and I met up for dinner. I scoured Tripadvisor for something that wasn't going to have terrible parking of Pike Place, had great ratings, the food wasn't so weird that you read the menu and say "Huh?," and that was truly mid-range pricing. This restaurant met all those things. For a Thursday night, we were able to get... More

Crow is a very convenient place to eat if you are going to an evening performance at one of the venues in the Seattle Center or on lower Queen Anne. Crow also has a sister restaurant named Betty. The atmosphere is nice and the menu is small but good.

Crow is one of our locals. We enjoy eating here for special occasions (not fancy, but more than the typical Friday night "don't feel like cooking" special occasion). The food is reliably good, but not mind-blowing. The service is also reliably good, although sometimes a little slow when things are really busy. The craft cocktails are well-done and the seasonal...

The restaurant is two blocks away from my hotel. It is an upscale restaurant with a somewhat limited menu. I was alone so I agreed to sit at the Chef’s Counter. As the name infers, the counter is right in front of the cooking area, from my seat, I could watch the chef’s preparation of the various items on the... More
