"Bad night for Grand Cru service. Our waiter got something wrong with every order. For example four of us ordered soup, two ordered salad. One of the salad people, after waiting a loooong time, asked where their salad was, to which he replied,"you didn't order a salad; you ordered soup and I brought it to you." What?! To top it off, six soups appeared on the bill. All good orders were screwy and wine was no better. One person sat for quite awhile waiting for his wine flight when the rest of us had been served. When he waved another server over to inquire, the server said, "I can't help you right now!" And scurried off. Very strange night but gave us lots to laugh about. Would not recommend. Too pricey for such sloppy service."

"First time in new location. More seating and Much more noise. Still enjoy selecting wine from the shelves but our new waiter had limited advice. Food was not as good as I remembered. We each had fish. Although well prepared--not a standout meal."

""Ok" experience began with seating, you can't sit there, no, can't sit there, you can only sit there, etc. Really? I find it odd and annoying when restaurants try to close off certain tables/sections, and force you into a crowded/noisy area to a table you don't really like, yet others are sitting in the area you desire (we are not talking private party here, its one big room). Menus delivered quickly, but then 10 minute gap for drink order. Lobster bisque tasty, but tepid at best, just not hot. Steak was just ok, my friend's fish was good. Had to eventually flag down another waiter to find our waiter to get the check. Also, the wine list is weak for a place that calls itself a wine bar. Might try again, but doubtful."

"I made a reservation for 6 people for New Year's Eve dinner. I liked that we were able to choose the prix fixe menu or order a la carte, as not everyone wanted all 4 courses. The waitstaff was very friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant, which is newly expanded, was nice. I somewhat preferred the smaller, cozier ambiance of the previous location, however. One complaint was that we were able to make a 6:00 pm reservation and when I called to see if I could change it to 6:30, we were told the restaurant was completely booked. During our dinner, there were multiple empty tables that remained empty for the entire duration of our dinner so I was perplexed why a later reservation was not possible.
Otherwise, the food and drinks were very good. Mine could have been a little hotter, it was more so room temperature but it did not warrant mentioning it to the waiter."

"Great place to go and unwind and drink wines/eat gourmet foods at reasonable prices. Had an early seating for their New Year's special. Four courses @ $70 pp, great value considering the wide choice of food. Each course had four offerings to choose from, my partner is pescatarian, it was easy for us choose a variety of dishes--divers scallops for first course, beet and asparagus, venison/duck/fois gras and a delicious halibut for our main course. Portions were just right since the enormous desert sampler was the finale to a great meal. Lots of wine choices, we opted not to do the wine pairing instead choosing flights of 3 oz. white and reds to round out our meal. Highly recommend both the New Year's and Valentine's day special menus."

"High expectations after reading reviews, but was disappointed. Waitstaff over all friendly and helpful with an exception. Some of my guests were late and I felt bad about it. Waiter brought out all my guests appetizers except mine and didn't say a word about it. We had to flag another waiter to get it when it didn't come out. Almost same thing with 2nd course afterward waiter made effort to bring our courses out at same time. For bill ($356), our guy friend wanted to add more to his share to pay for tip (3 ladies, 1 male). Waiter suggested charging us ladies $100 each and the rest to him. I felt we were taken advantage of and not sure if will come back or recommend."

"We are so glad to have been introduced to Gran Cru by friends who are well versed in the best restaurants in the DC Metro area! Over the past month, we have dined at Gran Cru two times, including an early New Year's Eve dinner. They consistently provided exceptional and friendly service, and flavor-filled, excellent food. From the appetizers, to the bread, to the entree and last, and definitely not least, the dessert, the food was enjoyed by all of us! A few of the things we indulged in are: Grilled Hawaiian Butterfish, Prime Filet of Beef, Sauteed Diver Scallops, Stuffed Wrapped Brie, Prosciutto Wrapped Dates, Truffled Deviled Eggs, and 3 different desserts that we shared.
They have a unique concept to choose your bottle of wine from their extensive wine display, or they will recommend one with your food selections or you can go the route of ordering a glass of wine from their extensive list.
On New Year's Eve, we decided to go for an early dinner. We were there as they were gearing up to host a full house for the evening. They provided the best of service and didn't rush us knowing they had sold out for the celebration.
We love the ambiance and parking is easy in this section of Clarendon. We'll definitely be returning and highly recommend this gem!
They deserve every bit of the 5 stars I've given them for all aspects of what it takes to be successful in the DC metro area!
Thanks for two wonderful dining experiences Gran Cru!

"Besides the outstanding wine selection, the food is always superb and lately with more and more of a French country twist. A wonderful spot for a reunion of old friends who love wine."

"Grand Cru is an under-appreciated gem, and Trent Conry is an ace chef. The firsts can be knockouts and as simple as wonderful deviled eggs. The Mediterranean Medley salad is varied and tangy and always on target. Mains such as duck, lamb shank, risotto and even mac and cheese with good ham are wonderful. There is artistry and thought behind these dishes, and the result is very, very pleasing. Wines are an important element too, with the opportunity to choose your bottle from the racks or to mix and match by the glass. Been there many times, most recently to celebrate, and will go many more times."

"I have been to Grand Cru before; I met a former student and we had soup, cheese board and the gnocchi; all were extremely good. The soup wasn't really hot enough but we didn't bother saying anything and it was a bit too cheesy, not butternutty enough. Cheeses were fine, the accompanying breads, fine. Gnocchi a bit too oily but very good. I like being able to buy a bottle of wine there and they charge a small corkage fee. All in all its a very good place; it's small and gets crowded so if you want to sit at the bar, you have to get there sort of early. I travel to Arlington regularly and typically end up here at least on one of my nights."
