Reviews for Dancing Crane Cafe

The cafe is average with food quality. There are a few refrigerated choices that are healthier than chicken fingers and fries. They had pretzels with hummus, salad, organize milk, and deli sandwiches. The food and drinks are overpriced. Great spot to take shelter from the hot sun, definitely not my first choice first lunch.

A great place to have a bite. I met my friends from Massachusetts here for lunch before we toured the Central Park Zoo. The food is hamburgers, sandwiches, salads. Everything was fresh and tasted good. The prices were fine for Manhattan. My out-of-town friends thought prices were high. When we finished visiting the zoo, we stopped back at the cafe to get drinks and relax a bit.

Of course it's expensive, it's a cafe in a zoo, but the staff were really nice to me. Expect to pay about $13 for a drink, soup, and fries. All were "carnival" quality. Again, it's a zoo, what should i expect - not much. Luckily for me I went the day before Mayor Bloomberg was going to ban large sodas, so they were giving out their souvenir 32 once cups. Sometimes you're just hungry at the zoo and have to eat.
