That should’ve been an indication of that upon booking. Made the meal a bit rushed. Food good though. Desserts were standout.

Perplexing and unprovoked snide comments such as, “I’m doing my best I only have two hands”. Front of the house in total disarray and unable to seat us or communicate to us that they couldn’t fulfill our open table reservation. We got testy too but still, after an hour of putting up with the staff’s hostility is it worth it? When we were finally seated we were so happy that the food was delicious!! but unfortunately the staff couldn’t help but one last snarky dig. Never again.

The chicken dumplings were perfect as a starter to share, and all 4 of our mains were delicious (swordfish special, tuna burger, steak frites). Finished off with the sticky toffee pudding to bring a lovely evening to a close. This was my 3rd visit to Cafe Cluny in 2 weeks and it’s been a joy every time, thank you (We had a table for 4 inside. It was busy and although the waitress couldn’t hear me (I’m generally soft spoken) we found the noise level pleasant and manageable for conversation.)

Cafe Cluny checks all the boxes and is a no-fail choice when it comes to city dining. We love it here (and so do the celebs!). The menu has so many options and the desserts are insane—we have to order multiples. We can't wait to go back... and will do it soon.

We all live in the neighborhood and have been supporting cafe Cluny since inception. The food was good but unfortunately the experience was overshadowed and ruined for us and guests around us give the hostess’ behavior.
