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.
My husband and I shared the chicken and the salmon. Both were delicious.
Food was average-I haven't been there in 7-8 years but, I remember it being much better. My fries were overdone, so I asked to replace them with a new order... They were also overdone! The place needs an overhaul-time for someone to spend a little money sprucing it up! Not a great experience.
Fod was delicious, waiters pleasant, but really too noisy. Got used to it.
Cafe Cluny has become my new favorite restaurant to introduce my in town and out of town friends to as the food is creative and excellent as well as the ambiance and service. My only wish is for a slightly more expanded wine selection with some additional below $40/bottle wines.
Can’t go wrong here. Always delicious food in a warm
Cozy setting !
I live nearby. Cafe Cluny always delivers. Great restaurant
Quiet in front area where bar located at 6pm on a Saturday but have been there late when very noisy.
Feel like I’m in Paris when there. Inventive amazing cocktails. Atmosphere amazing. My favorite restaurant to go to in West Village.
Go for the room, the lighting and the crowd, Cluny is a great choice for that. Food is fine but nothing memorable. Decent chicken and salads. Burger is overpriced, mediocre.
I love this place. Reminds me France.
Always love eating here -- great food, great service, and charming clientele.
Had been wanting to eat here for a while. Had drinks a few months ago and was happy to finally have dinner. The food was fantastic. The staff very attentive. We were with clients and needed to be able to talk and even though the place was full and sort of buzzing, we could still talk comfortably! Will definitely be back soon!
Cafe Cluny became an instant classic the second it opened more than 12 years ago (if my memory serves me correctly). It is not difficult to see why once you step inside and feel right at home in its sepia toned environment. The menu has always been well executed and the wine menu goes pretty well with most of the dishes. The service this past time felt a little rushed, like they wanted us to order quick because they wanted to go home. I made a comment to the waiter about it and did not deny it because of the weather!
I will be back to Cafe Cluny because, occasional hurried service aside, it is still a classic.
I took my daughter here for a lovely meal. We really enjoyed ourselves. Pricey but good!
Excellent choice ! Window seat for two , excellent service and great food !
We had been here 10 years ago, and I still remember it fondly. I wanted to go back for a special family dinner, and was not disappointed. The service was kind and helpful. The food was delicious and interesting. I can't wait for our next visit. Hopefully, I won't wait 10 years again!
I thought the meal was outstanding. The pumpkin soup was amazing as was the bacon wrapped scallops.
Waitresses was unbearable pushy! Interrupting constantly & generally annoying. Food and atmosphere was good but, highly overpriced. Sadly my opinion of Cafe Cluny is ruined.
Charming in every way. Lighting, design, location, staff.
A little noisy is my only concern.
Will definitely go back.
Cafe Cluny is always a sure bet for outstanding food, service and ambience. So cozy, warm and so West Village...it's one of my favorite bistros in NYC. We had the $40 prix fixe which is a great deal.
Cute French restaurant in West Village. We had the hamachi and croquettes to start and the tuna burger and sea bass for the entree’s. The hamachi was incredible! For dessert we had the profiteroles, which were a taste of heaven. Would definitely go back.
Our party of 5 loved Cafe Cluny--- immediately adjacent to the Whitney--- which made our afternoon and evening really special. The ambiance is charming and the food was delicious. We had poached lobster, steak frites, tuna tartar, steak tartar, and lots of other delightful dishes. Service was attentive and fast (maybe too fast). This will become a favorite of ours when we are in the area. Had a really nice evening at Cafe Cluny.
Perfect cozy restaurant for brunch with a twist.
Old school NYC charm with healthy, creative brunch choices.
The service was OK but the food and ambiance made the whole experience a pleasure.
The food is absolutely delicious. The service is very good. I ordered red wine, but it was not as dry as I thought. So I asked waitress if I could switch even I already had one sip. She had no problem for me to order new one. Great customer service!
A perfect West Village dining experience! The food was impeccable; succulent and flavorful sea bass with this sauce that was heavenly. Very efficient and friendly service. This is a great spot for anything from drinks and apps with friends to an intimate date spot!
Dinner is an outstanding value only for the prix fixe $40. 3-course dinner 5:30–6:30.
it's always great...small group or large. Love the area and love the restaurant. Food was wonderful especially the short ribs!
This was a very important dinner party for us and it went flawlessly, thanks to the excellent wait staff, maitre de, menu, wine list, food and ambience. Our guests were vocal in their appreciation of Cafe Cluny and were delighted to have discovered it for themselves.
Cozy neighborhood and friendly place. Got the grilled chicken and it melted in my mouth! Fast and friendly service. Love the decor inside, Very inviting.
Good food but felt rushed- even after I ordered a bottle of expensive wine.
Lovely restaurant it would be more interesting if the menu varied more often. quiet polite intelligent service.
It’s a lovely quiet room with good food and lovely cocktails
Attractive but crowded neighborhood French-styled bistro with cramped tables, little spacing and high decibel levels. Menu is basically good bistro food, nothing special but well prepared ( burgers are very good). Wine list is small, varied and affordable. Service is friendly and good. Value for money, good for when you're in the neighborhood but not worth a special trip nor a destination restaurant.
Service was amazing. Food was excellent. Salads were so good I’ve been craving them. Entrees were also delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Café Cluny, which is in my GVillage neighborhood, has gotten better and is busier now than the last time I went a few years ago. The menu is varied; the dishes we ordered were very good; we were able to get minor adjustments with no problems. The desserts were nice. The service was young, helpful and swift. The place is quite crowded, the only thing I didn't like was being so close to the next table. The prices are moderate. And actually, it is not easy to get decent French food in NYC (compared to Italian, or even Japanese and Chinese). So I will be back!
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!
