What Insiders Are Saying
A can't miss West Village Infatuation go-to that's Perfect For all kinds of things, including Chronic Brunch, Date Night, and Dinner with the Parents.
Love August in the city!!
Nice menu; food preparation is excellent; wine list is small and good, especially by the glass; good French wine selections to go with the deliciously prepared French food. The Steak Tartare paired very nicely with the Côtes du Rhône; the Sancerre was soft and delicious, complementing the chicken dish very nicely. Cooperative, friendly staff.
A wonderful meal. As my friend said, “it’s like eating in Paris.”
Lovely restaurant and will go back. Sister restaurants Odeon and Cafe Luxembourg are favorites for many years. This is a different vibe....small, intimate and very nice.
Cafe Cluny is always a joy! Interesting and very well prepared food with seasonal offerings served by very pleasant people in a relaxed atmosphere.
Very intimate setting.
My review is all over the board, let me explain. I have been going to Cafe Cluny for years. It is the one destination every time I visit N.Y. This was a great french restaurant but something changed with the new chef. There was only 3 french inspired items on the menu the rest was asian influenced entrees more or less. I was very disappointed to find this out. It had been so tried and true for years. They took the best dessert ( flourless chocolate cake with marscapone dollop on top) off the menu. Really bummed. They were very kind in giving us another facsimile which was good but not the original. It was called a black forest flourless torte with Luxardo cherries and a dollop of cream. My dinner was very good and french but slim choices on the french entrees. Keep it French or change the name!
We always enjoy Cafe Cluny for a nice dinner. The food is always good - sadly never fantastic - but it is creative and well prepared and always tasty. The staff and service are very good and they make you feel welcome. The menu is varied and they have specials each evening. We have also had some very nice brunch meals there.
I have had dinner several times and it is always excellent. Food is interesting with nice size proportions
If you're looking for a breakfast option with overpriced food and a staff that is attentive to rush you out of the restaurant, take a plate from each guest until the last guest might be finished and they see an opportunity to approach them because tgey took a few minutes to not eat so they can then drop a check, this us your neighborhood gem. The menu is small as are most of the portions. They warmly greet you and do the same when you leave. Everything else is just posturing.
Hands down best food I have ever eaten. Everything with divine! Dont miss the tomatoes appetizer a d peaches on toast for dessert - mmmmm perfection!!
great neighborhood place, especially early in the evening...
This was our anniversary dinner and our meal was very good. The service was a little fast/rushed and the food runner kept mixing up the orders - who ordered what - to the point where he brought the dessert for the table next to us and put it on our table - we had just finished out dessert.
As usual, delightful atmosphere, friendly service, awesome food.
My mistake: nice place for breakfast or lunch (good burgers) or an EARLY dinner, but from 7:30 on, the noise level was deafening. Some people like that, but I don't, not if I'm with a friend. Food was good, but as my friend said, nothing looked like itself. I should have had a burger! Waiters were very polite and helpful.
Precious little neighborhood gem
I had heard it was a great restaurant so I took my son. My food was average, his was below average. I had fish, nothing special. He had a steak which was very fatty. Too many other restaurants to go back here.
My entree which was king crab and roasted corn w squid sauce was mostly sauce. Very little crab. And I am a small eater but this was definitely appetizer size of not just a tasting. Have always loved your restaurant but would hesitate to return
Portions were comically small, server was visibly annoyed...
Great mixed green salad. Dressing delish.
Tuna burger so yummy.
Leisurely dinner with no one rushing us!!!
It is always a pleasure to meet friends at Cafe Cluny. Our out-of-town friends always ask to meet us there - great food, great ambiance and great service.
Excellent service. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Always feel welcome. Varied menu.
One of my favorite places in the city for a quiet, cozy dinner. Great place to sit at the bar with a book and order a burger and martini!
Have been here at least 5 times and it is always consistent.
Lovely atmosphere, great service, had the burger, one with GF roll, the other standard. Had a lovely red by the glass.
Overall great food and that’s what matters. Little tight with the seating set up. The Hudson and spring lavender bourbon drink size was a bit small.
I always love this restaurant and the food is always outstanding.
Love coming to cafe cluny on a weekday ... brought out of town friends and the visit was great. Staff are welcoming and do not rush you. Food is always good.
the food was okay, the service was not.
waitress messed up both of our orders
left off additional ingredients i ordered
and my husband’s omelette came with a choice of fries or salad
he requested fries
she confused him by asking unnecessary questions
and did not serve him the salad or fries
but zucchini fries at an additional $12.00
which i did not realize until reading the bill
when i pointed out that he never got the fries
she said he was wrong, not her
when i pointed out that he and i both specified that he wanted the fries that came with
she said, oh my fault
paid $60.00 (sans tip) for an omelette and cheese burger
will not return
Our dinner was enjoyable. It seems that the head chef changed but we still enjoyed the food . Bar drinks were just okay. Tiny little cocktail glaseas. They make the full drink but toss half of it so you buy another round. I’m in the business so I know why they do it. I didn’t care about the price. I cared about the intentions and I didn’t like that.
great vibes, friendly staff,
but it was quite noisy
The food was quite good, but they refused to take the $10 points reward that I received from Open Table when they advertised on line that they would take a reward and not for $20 but for $10. I took the lesser reward to eat here and they were very absolute that they would not honor my $10 reward. I believe that was false advertising and they were not very friendly about it all.
Enjoyed the Cluny Burger with delicious fries. Service was very good and everyone was
friendly and welcoming. Clean rest rooms!!!
Just a wonderful regular happy pleasant place for lunch. So hard to find a place to return to again and again.
Cafe Cluny is one of the most charming neighborhood restaurants in the world. The room is great, the staff are friendly and nice, and the menu is good. My very minor criticism is that the food was a little too salty for my taste, and the pea vichyssoise, which I expected to be cold, was hot and contained unnecessary cream.
Great little restaurant in the West Village. We had a great meal to celebrate a birthday. Service was also excellent.
Very good meal. I had the special daily with duck, tasty. Service is very good but not formal. The espresso could be better. We would recommend this restaurant to our friends.
Love Cafe Cluny. Food is always consistently great. Almost always order the tuna burger and my friends loved their meal.
We love Cafe Cluny but it has gotten very expensive for what it is. The food is good but perhaps not worth $32 for a steak frites or $29 for simple salmon. Each glass of wine was $15- and while it was decent- was not exceptional. My wife and I had 3 glasses of wine in total, split a salad, each had an entree and split a dessert with a double espresso and a club soda- total with tip was $190. I frequent many places in this range and Cafe Cluny just does not rate this expense- even though service is good, food good, atmosphere is probably the best part of it- such a cozy place for romantic dinner- just not at destination prices.
As always an amazing meal with exceptional service. Unfortunately, a table of 6 loud millennial women were unbelievably loud. Once they left, the place was place I love where the only conversation you hear is your own.
Sad the restaurant didn't quiet them down during business week breakfast hours.
