Worst dining experience I’ve ever had. 3 friends and I ordered a round of drinks and a food item each which seemed to be fine until we were halfway through our meal and the manager(?) came over and harassed us telling us we all needed to order food (which we had, it was right in front of us) and that everyone now had to order mains. He was so rude and loud and made everyone turn over to our table. It felt like I was in elementary school being reprimanded by a cruel teacher. Made me and my friends so uncomfortable at the table it almost spoiled our reunion. Naturally we did not order more food, just left as soon as we were done with the food and drinks we had ordered. (The bill was over $100 and no one was waiting for a table.) if we hadn’t been there it would have just been an empty table.

Never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant before. Will be telling all my friends about this unpleasant dining experience. Will note that the actual waiters who served us were nice and the rude manager did not jeopardize the kind tip we still left for them. Will never be returning again though!

Kudos to Cafe Cluny and staff for keeping it going through this difficult winter. The outdoor "shed" was well-lit and well-heated, proof that you CAN still have a delicious and cozy dinner in the West Village in these crazy times.

It 's always enjoyable. Food and service are wonderful! It was pretty safe. Each table has plexiglass protection. We sat outdoors under an electrical ceiling heater and didn't feel cold .

Cafe Cluny was the perfect place to spend a pandemic Thanksgiving. It is always full of good cheer and out of all the restaurants on West 4 Street, I think their outdoor setup is perfect. Open on one side, good distance between tables, and effective heat lamps. Also it's much quieter than it normally is inside.

Average food. Very inattentive service. Had to ask our server for just about everything and she could barely be bothered to respond. This place has gone way downhill.

The best steak I have ever had, just like it was the last time I came to this restaurant. Our waiter was charming and didn't get annoyed with meal substitutions. The pistachio ice cream was 10/10. This place is a magical little restaurant that transports you to another time! I love it so much.

The service was very slightly off. NOT the server but the bartender who I ordered a drink from never greeted me and the food runner really needed to be retrained. I’ve been to CC before and will be back. It’s a great intimate restaurant. The team needs to friendly across the board (not just some people) and the service should be impeccable not verging on cluelessness.
