    It was great to come back here and it was better than ever. We sat outside, a little cool and the ambience was just OK, but who could do better these days? Shout out to the staff who were terrific to a person. I had buffalo chicken appetizer which was good, and the spinach ravioli and zucchini fries, both of which were excellent. I was delighted. My friend had the lobster roll which she said was great. We shared the sticky toffee pudding - excellent. Now I am looking for a reason to go back!

    Short Attention Span Version: Really? You spill an entire tray of drinks on me and i have to sit through the rest of my meal with a wet arm, wet leg, and wet shoe, and you don't even comp me a single drink or a single dessert on a $350 bill for four? Full version: I fully appreciate that accidents can happen, and know there was no mal intent, but an entire tray of drinks was spilt on me, and my arm, leg, and shoe were soaked. The waitress was verbally apologetic. I didn't make a scene about it, and in fact tried to minimize the issue so the rest of my party and the table next to us could get on with their meal, but I had to sit through the rest of my meal wet and uncomfortable. I would have left if we were not with old friends who were only in town for the night. When my bill arrived I was shocked to see that not a single gesture was made to compensate me for the incident. Not a single drink or single dessert was removed from the bill. The more I have thought about it the more angry I have become. Where was the manager? In a well run restaurant a manager would have immediately appeared at the table to apologize and do something to make it right. There was none. Even on our way out nothing was said or acknowledged. This is the memory I am left with for Cafe Cluny. Can't even recall the food.

    The server asked for allergies and I said wheat. My salmon came out over some noodles that I had to ask about. Basically it was a “whoops”. Meanwhile my dinner guest ate his entire meal while I waited for a redo of my dish. No compensation for their huge mistake. Probably won’t be back.

    Cafe ClunyResponded 1 day agoHi Thomas, I'm so sorry to hear that you had this experience with us. I did call and leave a message letting you know that I would like to pay for your next meal, if you would be willing to give us another chance. Again apologies where they are due, we normally take extreme caution with all allergies. Please free free to call anytime if you have a change of heart and would be willing to return. (212) 255-6900 All my best, Thomas High General Manager

    Service was not great. Waitresses never came back after meal was served to check on us. Water bottle was never refilled. Even the check with my credit card sat on the table for a long time despite most of the customers had left for the evening.

    Food was excellent with the exception of the rice bowl dish which was a salty mess. We sat outside to noise level was good. (This is not to say the noise level inside is not good. In the past I've always found it acceptable.)

    Seated on time, stayed longer than permitted under their policy but were asked politely to vacate the table. Food was fine, wine was very good, tho maybe a bit pricey. Service was excellent.

    We ate inside, where they have two charming rooms, with excellent service. The menu is not large, though it includes sandwiches and salads even at dinner, but the food that we ordered was quite good (including a sea bass special) and great fried calamari. The place is casual and friendly, perfect for a Sunday evening.

    Out table was ready at the time of the reservation, we did not have to wait, service was cordial and quick, the food was great The only caveat was that the espresso was a little cold, because the cup was not warmed up before pouring the coffee in it.

    Felt a little rushed. By the time we sat down, ordered, ate, and had our bill in hand, it had only been 45 minutes. Food was good and drinks were good but the feeling of being rushed took away from the experience overall. Would go back regardless!

    The food was fine and the service was good, I was surprised, though, to learn upon arriving for our 9 PM seating that the restaurants kitchen closed at 9:30. That should’ve been an indication of that upon booking. Made the meal a bit rushed. Food good though. Desserts were standout.
