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.
Great food and service. Very chic and warm environment.
Intimate space that made it feel like a Parisian bistro. The food was excellent! We just lived it and will definitely return
Extraordinarily helpful staff.
Very pleasant environment.
Oh – and the food is good also.
You can beat the $40 dollars early bird prix fixe. Otherwise I think the menu is a bit steep. But we had a really great time and the food is very good. Also we had a terrific waiter.
A very pleasant place to dine, and genuinely has the feel of a neighborhood place. Lovely service, very accommodating, and the food was terrific. Berries and cream with no added sugar for dessert, proves that satisfying dessert without sugar can be done!
Was really disappointed with server. Seemed very ambivalent and not very forthcoming about preparation (we had an allergy concern).
Didn’t once check on how our meal tasted (thankfully excellent).
Barely acknowledged that it was a special birthday dinner occasion.
Just kind of seemed to ignore us a bit, while clearly chatty with another staff member.
Had an attitude and was just generally lame.
Love your restaurant and food is fabulous...and will def be back.
This was our first time here. Avid theatre go-ers from Boston, our trips are usually short and we veer to restaurants that fit our schedule in mid-town. We had an evening free and I searched for a restaurant “off our beaten path”. Cafe Cluny’s menu had something for everyone. The crispy salmon, steak frites, burger, wines and beers were all interesting and delicious. Our table by the window was beautiful. The setting is intimate but not too quiet or stuffy. The service was excellent. We couldn’t recommend this restaurant more. It was a lovely evening and we can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic lunch at cafe Cluny today.
Quiet little French cafe. Lovely atmosphere with good service and simple French fare. We enjoyed
our lunch there!
A neighborhood gem, Old West Village charm. Wonderful staff too and sun lit room
Excellent meal, as usual.
Cute little place, the ambiance was great. The food was okay I had the pork belly with hash brown it wasn’t much to rave about. The granola bowl was great. When I received my entree I noticed that the whites in the eggs were still runny they were not set yet, I pointed it out to the waiter and the only thing he insisted on was “well you ordered over easy that is what over easy is”. He reluctantly put in another order, needless to say that bit was off putting for me.
New Year’s Eve here is very special, busy but not crazy, elegant yet personal. We go early, but later they have hats and bubbly. Cafe Cluny may be one of the last Village classic restaurants with charm and excellent food. The bar is adorable old-school. The staff this time was notably excellent/friendly-not-too-much. What a great way to ring in a new year, in a classic atmosphere!
Casual, authentically-French feeling small cafe in cozy W Village corner spot, with good wine list & excellent food & service, all four of us loved it!
We had a great time. I've dined here multiple times. It feels like a authentic NYC experience.
Attentive service and excellent food. Overall, the best Christmas dinner we ever had. Little Gem & Endive salad had a great mix of colors, textures and flavors. Steak Frites au Poivre was delicious. Our waiter was spot on in recommending the apple tart. Thankfully, this is a restaurant in our neighborhood so we can return soon.
I stumbled into Cafe Cluny on Christmas Eve 10 years ago. At the time I was a visitor alone for the holiday and found it friendly, welcoming and delicious. The staff and servers are gracious and the menu offers something for every taste. My go-to is the Steak Fritz and Frisee Salad. The wine is always perfectly paired and I've never been disappointed. It is truly a neighborhood gem, perfect for any occasion or just a random Tuesday when you need a bit of extra TLC.
Restaurant with lovely ambience in the West Village, good for relaxed conversation, friendly staff and delicious, inventive dishes.
Incredible food. Outstanding service. Love the area and a the cozy astmosphere. Will def come back!
Really amazing meal here. Everything we had we delicious. The decor is also very nice and the location is quaint.
Its always amazing
Always a great neighborhood standby, solid food with great service and classic WV ambience.
Great experience at Cafe Cluny. We had an early dinner which allowed us to order from their Pre Fixe menu (which i would highly recommend). Had the steak and it exceeded our expectations. Lovely service and a great all around experience. We will be back!
Dinner was delicious! What a wonderful intimate French Bistro.
Visiting with friends from NC and we had a great evening. Wonderful food, fun atmosphere and terrific service. Cafe Cluny is a neighborhood jewel.
Just a chic, chill restaurant with nice bistro food. Staff is lovely. It’s a quintessential New York spot.
Great! Cozy atmosphere and wonderful food!
Service and food wasn’t as expected but a beautiful cafe
Perfect for breakfast meeting
Love Cafe Cluny and the neighborhood vibe. But please bring back the fabulous gluten free bread that made the avocado toast so special. Disappointed with the change.
First time and loved it. Seated immediately w/reservation (suggested) and extremely attentive service. Food was delicious and the place had that “cool” west village vibe. Highly recommend.
Lovely lunch for my mother’s birthday. Wonderful and thoughtful service.
We really like the cozy fun atmosphere. Our appetizers and dinner was fantastic! Only issue was our waiter gave marginal service as we mentioned something to him and rather than easily addressing the point he shrugged it off with attitude.
Service was excellent and food was very good. We went there because it was billed as a quiet restaurant. We ended up at a table of very loud 3 women and the staff moved us so all was good. I will return.
Small neighborhood spot with a great vibe. Reasonably priced but really small portions. Food was just ok —. I would love to go back for the atmosphere but I wish the food was better!
After our reservation was abruptly canceled at "FIFTY" on Commerce Street (could not get a reason why it was canceled - just received an e-mail that it was with no explanation - nor speak to someone at that restaurant) I decided to make a reservation at Cafe Cluny - the best decision! The food was well crafted and presented and absolutely perfect! We shared Steak Tartare (delicious! well presented!) and both had the Steak Frites which was done to perfection. The fries - perfect! I never have dessert, however, being that everything was so well done, I decided on the Banana dessert. No regrets - was very well worth it!
Excellent in every way.
Such a gem. Food is outstanding and service is always on point. Delights and suprises every time. Consistently a hit.
A top rated experience for this restaurant tucked away in the West Village. Wonderful food in an intimate setting combined with great service all made for a very special evening. I look forward to my next visit - soon!
We are happy repeaters of this place, but for our thanksgiving menu this time the turkey was very very bad and too expensive
