Cafe Cluny is a neighborhood gem. It is our favorite place to go for all celebrations -- big or small or when we need a pick-me-up. Extraordinarily consistent with quality food, impeccable service, and a comfortable atmosphere. We have been coming for many years.

At all times, Cafe Cluny offers a wonderful brunch served by attentive waitstaff. During times of Covid, they also offer a well-done, very comfortable outdoor dining experience. Their outdoor setup is one to be admired and replicated. Open tent seating, overhead electric heaters and plexiglas dividers between tables. And this time, an added bonus of a disposable thermal 'blanket' for extra comfort in the cold.

Well done Cafe Cluny. We'll be back!

Absolutely delicious for Brunch. We are indoors but we’re right across from an open door otherwise I would have given ambiance 5 stars. We will be back when it warms up!

I hate to say this but this restaurant has gone so far down hill I may not return. The menu has changed and the food qulity has too. The service however has become atrocious- staff rarely come to the table, things come after long waits, and most requests are ignored. I want them to do better but this is the second less than ideal experience during covid and I’m afraid chances are low.

Have always loved Cluny. Was happy to see their outdoor setup is perfect--nice and open with lots of airflow. And the heaters kept us warm! Not surprised that they're being wonderfully responsible with regards to everyone's safety and comfort.

Food was really amazing. Probably wont come back till it's warmer because I don't feel the heating system is adequate to enjoy your meal. Our food was cold within minutes and our fingers and toes were still cold half an hour after returning home! There was some foil cover that marathoners use offered to some guests, but we weren't made aware of them till it was too late. Not sure if it would have made a difference!

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.
