Cafe Cluny Ratings and Reviews
Although I adore the location and ambiance, I am always less than thrilled with the food. I find it is not particularly interesting and not particularly good, I’m sad to admit. The tiny hanger steak I received for 30+ dollars was sub par and not flavorful at all. The French fries were also over cooked. The macerated berries that they used to serve came with a huge dollop of fresh whipped cream. This one came with a tiny amount and did not taste fresh. This restaurant is becoming more of a place for a drink than a place I want to have dinner. Over priced for what it is.
Have loved this place for brunch, but found dinner less inspiring, despite lovely atmosphere. Wine by the glass (a pinot) was so bad we had to send it back, and the steak was so tiny I initially thought they had split if for us (2 people were sharing it), but it was actually just a really small portion, and not cheap.
I almost don't want to write this review because this is such a hidden gem at a quiet street corner. I have never had a bad meal here and can always get a table on short notice - that combination is very rare in NYC. The food is fabulous, the ambience is understated where one can actually have a conversation - even the romantic kind if the situation calls for it. Try it but please don't tell too many friends!
Incredibly snobbish hostess and below par service. The hostess came off as extremely arrogant and if he restaurant won’t seat me until my party is here, the hostess doesn’t need to be rude and suggest I wait outside in the winter. This was because there is no wait area and she was annoyed that I was “clogging” the entry way as she so rudely told me. Where else do you expect me to wait if you won’t seat me?!? Also there were so many empty tables that she could have easily seated me without it becoming a problem. Get overt yourself
Cafe Cluny is located in my favorite part of the city. The restaurant is cozy, but the food is expensive for a not so special meal. The restaurant was very crowded. The waitress was very pleasant but her station was too large for her to pay proper attention. It is a hot spot. I would prefer a quieter restaurant with not so much of a scene.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful meal at Cafe Cluny.e We were in NYC for just one night and decided to make reservations here. We arrived a few minutes early for a 8:00 Monday reservation so we grabbed a drink at the bar. The restaurant was very busy, but not too loud for conversation. Food was excellent. Our waitress apologized for it taking too long to come out with a complimentary dessert but we thought it was the perfect amount of time to enjoy our wine! Overall, a wonderful experience and would highly recommend to somebody looking for a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Spent a wonderful Thanksgiving evening here. The Thanksgiving Classic was the perfect size with every staple you would want, all of which was expertly prepared. On top of this, the salmon that my dad got was the best I had ever tasted. The whole vibe of the place was fantastic, with an intimate feel overlooking a cobblestoned street. I would highly recommend this place.
The manager was obnoxious!! I asked if they could substitute one vegetable for another and they refused. They have a firm "no substitution" policy. They are not accommodating at all!!!! The food was fine but the portions were small. Overall it is not worth going!
