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.
The steak frites was VERY expensive for what it was and the quality especially knowing the other really good French restaurants in the neighborhood.
Very average menu selection. It’s OK to have a short menu as long as you hit all the typical French classics
Warm, welcoming bistro atmosphere with a limited but wonderful menu. Friendly service and delicious food!
Now the 3rd time for breakfast during the week and it is full of business folks barfing their business talk to each other.
Love Cafe Cluny for great food and wonderful setting.
The portions were tiny for the price.
It's like an old friend - reliable, warm, always cheers me up.
This was among our best experiences - and Cluny is our "canteen." The server was especially helpful, the food excellent and the wine outstanding (I took a picture of the bottle.) We overstayed our dinner because we were having such a great time, but nobody rushed us. Our guests were so happy they picked up the check!!
The early bird is great value and avoids the very loud noise that starts later.
Every trip to NYC we eat one meal at Cafe Cluny. Typically, we request the back room. This time we sat in the front room. The table guests beside us were obnoxiously loud which made our meal less than enjoyable. The restaurant staff and food is always good. That’s why we keep going back...and will continue to do so, but request the back room.
Simple clean menu which understates how lovely the food is. A great find for us and we will definitely return
The food was delicious. Service was excellent.
Nice enough. Better late afternoon. Tables a little tight.
Really nice meal. Burger was fantastic. And service was pleasant and accommodating.
I LOVE Cafe Cluny! It’s been one of my favs since 2010. Thank you !
Terrific food, good wine, cute room. Too dim, too noisy.
Very nice, cozy place. Good ambiance, excellent service. I really enjoyed it.
As usual, it was an amazing experience, and they went above and beyond to accommodate an extra guest.
Cibo discreto, ma ambiente troppo rumoroso : i tavolini sono vicinissimi è il rumore di fondo alto
Classic neighborhood gem with the best, friendliest service.
I have never had anything but a wonderful time at Cafe Cluny. This time my out-of-town guest suggested it because she had a great experience last time. Food was great, service was personal, as if a friend was our host.
Consistently good food. A lively atmosphere yet you can still hold a conversation over dinner.
El lugar es muy bonito y acogedor no obstante el mozo puso todo su empeño en que cenáramos rápido. Inmediatamente nos tomó la orden y la cena llegó en 5 minutos. Al terminar el postre nos trajeron la cuenta sin ordenarla. Es una pena, no hubo tiempo de disfrutar la cena y mucho menos el lugar.
Great restaurant with great service. All around fantastic spot.
My guest was delighted that her request for a soft omelette was perfectly met but was disappointed that the noise level rose to an uncomfortable din during lunch.
A friend recommended Cafe Cluny, and we are so glad they did! Sweet little spot in the Village, with amazing food and delish original cocktails. The service was great and timed just right, too. Fun, festive, and not too too $ - and worth every penny. The bar is small, but fun to sit at and have a drink or a meal. Can't wait to come again.
An absolute gem. Lovely staff. Delicious food. Great vibe. Just wonderful
First time at Café Cluny. We've eaten many times at Café Luxembourg & twice at Odeon (Café Cluny's sister restaurants), & this was certainly as good as those. While their wine list is limited, the Cote du Rhone that we ordered was excellent. We shared a steak tartare, which was the best we've ever had, then my spouse had the crispy salmon (served in parchment paper) which was superb, while I had the duck breast, also excellent. If you like well-prepared food in a bistro-style setting, Café Cluny is outstanding.
Excellent in the every way!
Very clean recipes. Portions smallish and expensive.
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.
