The servers were coming over every 5-10 minutes asking if we were finished with our food so they could clear it. It was so odd and awkward to say no each time. We had not even been there a full hour by that time. I just left with the feeling they did not want us there.

Cafe Cluny is the quintessential West Village eatery! The ambiance is so warm and inviting, the service is bar none, the food is fantastic and the menu is great! I can't say enough! It's our favorite WV eating destination and we will be back again and again!

Great French menu! Staff is super friendly! Food is fantastic! We ate oysters, French onion soup, roasted chicken, steak and the sticky toffee pudding. They have a nice selection of wines too. Nice outdoor seating. The inside space is cozy and inviting.

We arrived a half hour early and they were kind enough to seat us while we waited for our fourth person in our party. Cocktails were good, the server was always nearby not unobtrusive. It’s always a nice dining experience at Cafe Cluny.

Post-lockdown reunion with a friend to dine outside. I've dined here for a few years so coming back to Cluny for the first time since late 2019 was a homecoming. Despite staffing problems worldwide, Cluny didn't seem to be experiencing them. Service was exceptional.

While I love the vibe of the restaurant, I have to say that the only decent dish is the burger. The rest is really bad. They urgently need to revamp and reinvent the menu.

I’ve been going to Cafe Cluny tor years.
We dined inside which I like much
More than outside.
Steak frites delicious- Frites fabulous but Very “nickel and dime” attitude however to charge extra for sauce for the Steak.
Andree the bartender great.
Thanks. See you next time.

This was our first visit to Cafe Cluny. We were pleased to see options for dining outside as well as inside, though we selected inside dining. the outside spaces were very full but inside had a number of options for two. For some reason, the hostess tried to sit us next to a party of 6! We asked for and received different seating. The waiter was friendly but not particularly attentive. My coffee wasn't even warm. When I mentioned that, he did provide warm but not hot coffee. We ordered the purple sticky rice with poached eggs. The entree very good! After lunch we completed our meal with sticky butterscotch pudding. It was delicious! I did not reduce the rating as much as I might have as the lack of attention may have been due to staffing.

What can I say, Cafe Cluny has been my favorite for the past 13 years. It makes every occasion feel special from moment you are greeted by the host and waiter to the quality of the food and wine. My go-to meal is the Frisse Salad and Steak which never disappoints. My friend got the Branzino and Wartercress salad which she loved. It's a true neighborhood gym. I can't recommend it enough. Just go!

We enjoyed a nice evening at Café Cluny, inside - the traditional bistro environment is always welcoming. Service seems to be distracted perhaps bc of the indoor/outdoor split. We were a party waiting for the 4th member to arrive and when he finally did - menus were given but it took quite a while to have orders taken after that. Oddly enough, most of our entrees arrived barely warm, and when the salmon plate was asked to be reheated, the salmon came back hot - but the rest of the dish was still cold. Ravioli entree was strangely lacking in flavor. Fries seemed scant in comparison to previous visits.

Will try again, because we love this place! Perhaps an off-night...
