    The main dish was very good. Food is pricey. Server said we could get separate checks and them when we asked for the checks she said we could not. There was some confusion with the dessert order and the chocolate chip cookies were hard.

    The setting and atmosphere are energetic and lively. The presentation of the dishes was very good. I had salmon tartar, pomme frites, and roasted chicken. The RC was tender but lacked seasoning and salt. The staff were extremely attentive, including Managers Dylan and Alberto and bartender Afro. I will come back again.

    Our server had an attitude. I am hard of hearing and she was annoyed having to repeat herself, as it was particularly hard to hear with the elevated noise level. I felt like she thought that she was too good to serve us. The space was crowded and the ceiling was particularly low, so it felt confining and claustrophobic. Spend money on a cab and go to one of its sister restaurants.

    Cafè Cluny, a quintessential New York gem. Excellent service, perfectly prepared food, all framed in a comfortable French Cafè styled interior. I felt warmly welcomed as soon as I cast my gaze on this lovely space. My Salmon burger-medium rare and French thin cut fries done to my liking. Love this place!

    We went very early so it wasn’t crowded but they started to get busy as we were leaving and you could see some of the staff getting flustered already . But our server was exceptional and the food was very good. Would return.

    We live just down the street and it was our first visit to Cafe Cluny! We loved it. The food was fabulous and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The salmon crudo to start was outstanding. I had the rock shrimp with cavatelli. I ate every single drop in the bowl.
