If someone asks me out for dinner, "The Cow" as we aficionados call it, is generally my first choice. I've never been disappointed with a meal here. The service is always exemplary and the cuisine is subtle, pure and masterful. If you possess a finely tuned palette you understand what I mean by this.

This place is an Iowa City treasure. Save room for dessert - I promise you will not be disappointed.

Northside Neighborhood


Motley Cow is very close to the intersection of Gilbert and Market Streets. It's between Artifacts & Paul Revere's Pizza on Market and across the street from the paint store, formerly Gilpin's. Community parking is also across the street.
