Favorite restaurant in the west village, NYC. Can't go wrong with anything you order. Favorites are French onion soup, chicken dumplings, oysters, roasted baby carrots, pan roasted chicken, impossible burger, best fries in town, salads, rich and creamy chocolate pudding for desert will transport you back to your childhood. Relaxed, casual, non-snooty vibe. A+

It had been a while since we were able to get a reservation at Cafe Cluny, and time passed during the shutdown. Boy, had we missed this restaurant. Better than ever!

These days, lots of restaurants are offering outdoor seating. But not all are doing it as nicely as Cafe Cluny. Our table was comfortable, sheltered, and pleasantly situated on a quiet street. Add the quality of food and service, and Cafe Cluny is a good bet for an enjoyable outdoor meal on a nice spring day.

Café Cluny is our go-to restaurant. The dishes are creative, beautiful, and most of all delicious. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I love the place, on the famous corner of what?—West 12th and West 4th Streets? But of course, who follows rules? And the dining experience is equally relaxed and unexpected. Artful setting, yummy generous dishes, dependably delicious wines, friendly, Village meets Paris. I love Cluny, and no, I am not related to the owner. Just happy they are here and managing to continue to serve us during the pandemic.

It's strange to go to a neighborhood restaurant where the maitre'd and staff think they're doing you a favor by letting you spend your time and money at their establishment. So you deal with rude, indifferent service till it's time to pay the bill and then everyone is all smiles and hope you had a wonderful time.

Great as usual - Cluny has become one of my favorite places for COVID dining. In the before times I often tried to avoid it. But they have all the sanitation stuff down and it’s charming, and the noise level is so much better outdoors!

This was my first time at Cafe Cluny, and I came away thinking it was no better than its sister restaurant Cafe Lux. Both Cafe Lux has declined in recent years, and I guess, so has Cafe Cluny. The quality of their food. and the preparation was very disappointing. I had an omelet that was really overcooked and tasteless. French fries were also overdone. Service was great. So was the ambiance. But I won’t make a point to go back.
