Menu has a lot of great options and variety to suit both meat and vegetarian lovers. Lively, fun atmosphere and seems to be a hot spot on a Saturday night; though we didn't stay for the live music. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and food was pretty good. Would definitely recommend this place. We all left quite satisfied.

We were there for a night out so I can’t comment on all the menu items etc, but I have never heard anything bad about their food. I had a pizza which was amazing. This place has a great vibe and energy. Definitely would recommend and we will return again. Had a geat evening. I recommend reservations as its very busy.

The food and service were excellent. We were disappointed that the band we'd come to hear had cancelled. The replacement band had some decent musicians but the vocals were limited. It made for a noisy evening because the place was full and people were talking rather than listening to the band.

Loved every second of it except for the 5 obnoxious old ladies sitting next to us who wouldn't shut up while Erin Costelo performed.


Smoked tofu poke salad is a 10/10

Had a wonderful time eating at crow celebrating my birthday with my family. The live band was awesome and the service was great. Prices were reasonable as well, not unusually expensive compared to other restaurants in the area. Would recommend this spot to anyone.

The food was great, but the wine selection extremely poor...the ‘by the glass’ selection was either Ontario or Italian...not enough range and nothing even close to a regular Cabernet or Shiraz...drives up the price of the dinner to have to order the bottle.

Quaint dining spot with excellent food. We started with the Korean Fried Chicken Wings. They were amazing! Perfectly cooked, crispy and juicy, with a spicy Asian flavor but not too hot.
She had the Fresh Pasta and commented that it was excellent. The pasta was lightly sauced and the shrimps were buttery and cooked perfectly. I had the Grand View Farms Pork Schnitzel. The schnitzel was great and the vegetables were seasoned well and cooked just right. The duck fat confit potato were just okay.
The draft beer selection is a somewhat limited. They could do with a selection of some of the local craft breweries.
They have live entertainment here, but we dined before they started.

Our fave restaurant in Collingwood this summer. Fresh, seasonal and innovative dishes. We have enjoyed the chickpea fritters since our first visit. Burgers, vegetarian entrees and flatbreads have been our faves. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

Crow is a hidden gem in Collingwood. Casual atmosphere with music later in the evening.

The food was excellent -- I had the tuna poke and it could not have been fresher or tastier. My friends had the schnitzel and loved it.

Service was friendly and attentive. Fun place all around.

The Crow is lively place, and the food and service was very good. We were with an out of town friend for dinner, and arrived @ 630pm, Sat. evening. The Crow was about 30% - 35% full ... and the noise level was quit high. I imagine if the place was full it would be very hard to carry on a conversation.
