Top-notch food, with very fresh ingredients, boldly presented. Unfortunately, the outdoor dining was in several re-used parking spaces in the small street around the side of the restaurant, which provided a very noisy atmosphere including truck and car traffic right beside us.
However, that was minor compared to the excellent service, fine beverage pairings with the tasting (omakase) menu that we experienced.
Amazing as always! The Omakase always have me leaving full and happy. Great value for a tasting menu, truly the best deal in the city! Jake and Christian are fantastic, they surely know how to make a guest feel welcome and at home.
Wonderful, incredible service, food was splendid.
Thank you! 🙏 😊
Great service and food. Delicious and executed well. If you have a good appetite and even if you don't, you have to spend a lot to fill up. You come here for the experience.
Thank you for the great comment and feedback! 🙏☺️
We got the recommendation from a friend and decided to try Sunday Brunch. Everything is perfect - the environment, service, food quality. We always love Spanish and Japanese cuisine, so the food at Cranes not only satisfies the taste buds but also brings surprises by the Chef’s creativity of combining the ingredients and preparation methods of those two different cuisines.
Thank you for joining us and please send our 👍🏻 to your amazing friend who recommended us! We look forward to having you both back.
We have been to Cranes twice now, once before the pandemic and once since. The food and service were excellent on both occasions. The restaurant is understandably pretty empty right now, but Cranes is maintaining its outstanding standards. The Serrano ham and gulf shrimp were delicious
Were glad to have you back in our dining room! We miss our lively atmosphere and can't wait until its safe and everything is back to normal.
This restaurant is worth every calorie. Come ready to enjoy the tapas or the main dishes but make sure to save space for dessert.
Thank you for the comment! There is a separate stomach for dessert 😁 🍨
Best new restaurant in DC
Thank you! 🙏☺️
This was our first night out to a restaurant since the shutdown, and we absolutely made the best choice for our first anniversary! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, we felt incredibly safe and taken care of, and the food is magical. We couldn’t have had a more delightful evening.
Thank you for joining us on your first night out! We hope to see you back again.
The noise level note is entirely due to the country itself dealing with a pandemic.
If there weren't a pandemic right now, this place would be f*g packed.
I have no interest in censoring an absolutely stunning review, beyond putting in a bunch of asterisks for the overly sensitive readers.
This place is a place to be experienced. If you have the opportunity to dine here, or you have the flexibility to dine here, f*g dine here.
I have a background in culinary and beverage service, and I was absolutely blow away by the beverage options and culinary expertise that was displayed. A few friends were looking for a bit of normalcy and indulgence amid the pandemic, and the omakase selection didn't just hit that mark. It left them stunned.
I'm not exaggerating that. Stunned.
The scallop-ponzu butter course left a few friends who didn't know what ponzu was so stunned at what was dancing across their pallets that they didn't have words.
That is just one note, of one course. It leaves out the body of the timely service by the manager monitoring the sake lounge. It leaves out the gradual escalation of the body and intensity of the dishes, and the increasing subtly along with their intensity. The wagyu beef course wasn't *hot*...but I didn't want it to be. The carnal chew of seared and seasoned wagyu was primaly satisfying. And it was followed up by a palette-cleansing sorbet cocktail and dessert course that left everyone at the table absolutely *moaning*.
I'm not going to gloss that up with fancy text. *Moaning*. Everyone I brought to the table moaned at their first bites into the dessert course. It wasn't just a satisfying end to the meal. It wasn't just a nice and sweet dish, in and of itself. It f*cking capped things off in a way that made the whole experience ooze indulgence.
I don't care if anyone reads that and goes 'Oh, that sounds like it's too much'.
F**k you. Go here. Eat here.
I've eaten around the world. You should eat here.
Crane's was a pleasant surprise. The interior is beautiful and interesting. The menu is excellent and the quality of the food very high.. Service was good.
My only complaint is that, even for small plates, some of the items were kind of small. For example, the tomato and burrata salad was very tasty, but could have used one spoonful more for $12. The bao buns were great; as was the maitake tempura.
Worth a visit!!
Awesome evening food was fabulous with great service
Highly recommend the bento box. Really interesting dishes!
Fabulous find. Don’t miss it!! The Bento Box for lunch was fresh delicious and visually artistic. I can’t wait to return.
Great food. Service was above and beyond. Very clean and spacious (important in Covid times). Lovely food presentation. Would certainly come back!
Recommend the Bento box and off-menu ube coconut coconut!!
Amazing food, fantastic and attentive service, beautifully modern interior design, and amazing cocktails!
Exceptional, imaginative, creative, and innovative are the words that come to mind. My husband and I came for lunch for Restaurant Week 2020 on a Saturday. While it was still "brunch" early and eerily quiet (likely due to covid and people just not eating indoors), we got prime seating by a draped window, and the zen lounge music followed. He ordered a beer, I ordered a cute cocktail. The server gave a great background on the chef, whose cuisine is Spanish Kaiseki, prepared in a Japanese technique. Then, the food came. We got two matching oyster tapas, followed by bento boxes with unique ingredients you normally don't find in fine dining (very Jose Andres/ minibar), which were a joy to my taste buds. Every taste just blew me away with the unique flavors. We finished off lunch with a citrus tart, which tasted every bit amazing - like heaven in each tiny bite. We kept oohing and ahing at all the minimalist decor and interior touches. Loved this place - we can't wait to come back for the omikase and hopefully with friends. Definitely was the most memorable food I've tasted in years in DC and would recommend this to every foodie/food snob.
Great service and good food! A bit expensive but in line with fine dining experience.
Cranes is navigating the pandemic scenario in the best way possible. The space is very large so all seating groupings had more than enough space to spread out.
The food was amazing (always consistent) and the service was top notch. It was great to find some normalcy in this tough time.
You won’t be disappointed!
Cranes and its immensely talented chef, Pepe Moncayo, provides a culinary experience that is second to none!! I HIGHLY recommend Cranes to everyone looking for the best DC has to offer. Each plate is an experience unto itself. ENJOY!!!
The flavours in certain dishes in the omakase were perhaps too complex (e.g. octopus rice dish and the sauce on the steak). Steak was perfectly cooked but the sauce was too overpowering. The churros were not at all like you’d expect. It was not shaped like churros and lacked the crunchy/crispiness of fried dough.
Excellent bento box for Restaurant Week lunch. No outdoor seating here, but the inside dining room has high ceilings and spacious with roomy walkways and well distanced tables providing a safe environment. My only complaint - there is only one bento choice for the RW lunch but if you have t been already it's definitely worth checking out.
Cranes is a gem. Best food and restaurant experience in DC in years. Creative food with fantastic flavors, but not too crazy. Sleek interior but not pretentious. The number one restaurant in DC right now for sure. And does not break the bank.
This place is amazing!!!
Incredible. This is the best restaurant in the city, and no one knows.
The food, service and ambience was amazing. We were not expecting much, but were blown away instead. Not only was the food creative with the Spanish and Japanese flavors, but the chef went out of his way to create special surprises for our 9 years-old very pick eater. They even gave us a tour around the restaurant.
Cranes just opened back on Feb 2020. We really hope that this gem will survive the COVID restrictions and economy. This place is perfect for date nights, gathering with friends and families. We'll definitely be back!
Fascinating concept, food was displayed beautifully and service was impeccable. Curious to try Omakase option.
Absolutely amazing meal. Every dish was thoughtfully prepared, presented beautifully, and tasted amazing. Will be back often.
Pepe Moncayo is an extraordinarily talented chef!! Every course was a culinary delight!
Cranes provides an outstanding dinner experience and should be on everyone's A-List as one the very best restaurants in DC! A MUST!!!
Amazing food and service!
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Crane’s...the food is exceptional. The restaurant itself is big and open and airy, easy to maintain social distancing and the staff was super helpful. We will be back :)
We stumbled upon Cranes on a walk and are so glad we made a reservation the same day! The omakase was an amazing experience and we great appreciated the sake recommendation from our server. Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent Asian-Spanish influenced dishes. We enjoyed everything...potatas bravas was a creative take on the original, gazpacho was an amazingly smoky, tasty version, and my husband loved the pork bao buns. The salmon fisherman's stew was more like sauce with a piece of salmon, but it had an amazing deep flavor of saffron. Delicious. We also loved the perfectly cooked shrimp.
We visited during the coronavirus pandemic and sat outside on the sidewalk, which was not much fun given that it was open to the street. But we will go back nonetheless. A super place to eat in DC--perhaps our favorite.
Thank you for the kind words! We hope to see you back again!
Birthday dinner at Cranes...the food was first class as was the service. Highly recommend, we will be back :).
Were thrilled you enjoyed your birthday! We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent food and service. The maitake tempura is amazing.
We had the omakase menu and picked a couple of bottles of saké and champagne along the way. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and did not steer us wrong, and the menu was exceptional! From the presentation, portion size, interesting mix of Spanish and Japanese dishes, pace of the courses, and highly attentive service it was all perfectly done. The restaurant is also spacious and comfortable.
Were glad we were able to make good recommendations with your beverages! We look forward to serving you again.
Food was fantastic and so well presented!
