This was my fourth time at this beautiful restaurant. The food is always well crafted and delicious. My girlfriend and I are vegetarians and there are always a couple of tasty options. This evening we entertained some relatives from out of town and they had a marvellous time.

We were a party of 4 people who dined at Cluny for dinner on Saturday January 6th. The ambiance was lovely, nice decor, good music and happy diners. The food was excellent and each of enjoyed an entree and a main. We split two deserts and a bottle of wine. Our desert had cotton candy on it - fun! Although the restaurant is not cheap (just under $400 for the 4 of us), it was a really nice evening out. Very much would recommend to others.

Amazing overall experience! The restaurant itself looks amazing and feels very elegant. The staff are extremely nice and make the entire experience better. The food is second to none, the freshly baked goods is the best to start out with, and you have to go with the French Toast.

The atmosphere here is romantic and inspiring -- a bit French and a bit steampunk -- it's truly a dining destination from that perspective. The food is good, but not amazing and the menu is somewhat limited. In the past the service has been good but this time it was a little rough.

We were craving french onion soup so we came here for dinner. The soup was decent..not amazing, but definitely hit the spot. The rest of our order however was pretty lousy.

The burger looks amazing on paper, but the patty is very dry, the bun stale...the cheese patty is far too big and kind of gross. Even the relish they used was too sweet and made everything taste off. Came out cold, as did the fries.

The octopus was tasty, but cooked without that char that makes a good octopus dish great.

Lastly, we ordered 2 glasses of wine...they come in 5oz and 8oz glasses. We ordered without specifying, assuming like most Toronto restaurants 5oz was the default. The bill came and of course we were charged for 8oz...they changed it, but I felt like they tried to get the better of us..a little greasy.

I wouldn't recommend this place.

quality of service should catch up with the quality of food. We;ve been there a bunch of times, and we find that the quality of service is going down, but the food is still very good.

Upon arriving to a somewhat empty dining room that was completely set except for 1 table, the hostess made us wait while she reset this 1 table!?!? When I asked if they were expecting to be busy, she replied no not at all! (So why make us wait 10 minutes) we were then squeezed in beside another table of 4... ? After waiting at least 5-7 minutes for our server to arrive(again the restaurant was almost empty) we ordered 2glasses of wine(I might add, the server while we never did learn her name, was very pleasant) wine arrived promptly and we ordered a a couple of shareable appetizers. These were outstanding (steak tartar&coq ou vin poutine) halfway through our apps we really wanted another glass of wine but could not get the attention of our server that was conversing with other staff....when she did finally ask if we would like another, it took at least 5 minutes before the wine arrived! We are now not feeling the love....but we decide to share a dessert...which as part of the description says “pot de crepe” well it was really not to our liking and when our server did a quality check(the only time she did one) we told her that it was not what we had expected...2 things happened, she told us that the pastry chef was rated number 1 in Canada and she corrected our pronunciation of pot de creme(we are both French) and she left the table...the next time she returned again said you really don’t like this dessert and took it away. She shortly after brought the bill(with the dessert still on it) ....we paid and then noticed a fruit fly in 1 of our glasses of wine but just decided it was apparent that nothing would be done since we had already paid and that we would never return nor recommend this restaurant to any of our friends(most are in the restaurant industry)very sad because the decor is amazing and so were the apps that we tried but service is so important and we felt like we were just an inconvenience!!!

We went for brunch and were a slightly larger group (6 people). The food was fantastic and the server was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this place, as it has been consistently been good when we have been there in the past as well. The burger was ridiculously huge and delicious and we all loved the thin crispy frites.

Two comments: if booking a larger group or if you just want some space around the table, request a table at the perimeter of the restaurant, where the windows look onto the patio. Several other groups were in the half booths and twice in an hour different tables knocked water glasses onto the floor as they were shuffling in and out. And second, the drinks here are expensive - we paid $15 for a mimosa for example.

A regular spot for me, but this time, lunch was okay. Salad was delivered to me twice by a sweet runner that told me (twice) the wedge salad was a baby greens salad. Finally the order was corrected but the omelette cold after all the back and forth and not replaced. I was t told by the server that one of the breads contained walnuts (I’m allergic) but thankfully i noticed a large walnut before I took a bite. Surprised at this as many restos are vigilant about allergy communication with guests.

Very disappointed, use to be one of our favourite restaurants in the city. Unfortunately our meals were very uncooked, which they redid. By the time we received our food the rest of our table had finished eating so I decided to take my meal to go. Then they gave my meal to another table and didn’t offer to make me another. We won’t be back, so sad.

This is the second time we have been here, the first time was good, service and food. That's the reason we decided to come back for a second time.
This will be absolutely the last time. First of all the waiter we had was abnoxious and just had a short attitude, he thinks he was funny, this guy sucks! In addition the food was sub-par, The Frenchie was disgusting, foodies beware and the poutine was a far cry from the first time we had it. I don't know what happened?
My family and I just left very disappointed. I really wanted to leave a good review.

I was very impressed by the rustic decor and ambience, and the spaciousness of the room.

We arrived early for brunch and the noise level was low, but steadily increased as the restaurant filled up.

I particularly enjoyed the freshly made bread and dessert, but was disappointed by the eggs Benedict, and thus found the prices too high for the overall meal.

The service was fast and pleasant.

Disappointed in our meal, table and ambiance this time at Clunys .
The salad was good but came like half a plate (see pictures)
The steak was chewy and not much flavour, for this price should have been better. The ham Crockett was dry and heavy on the bread.
This was our third time here but we will not be returning.

Personally for me I enjoyed my meal but it was very hard for me to choose something to eat because every second item on the menu had cheese and I am unable to eat cheese. My boyfriend did not enjoy this resturant at all becuase this style food is not in his interest. I would recommend it only for people who enjoy new things and want to go to a beautiful looking restaurant but I would not recommend it for an every day dining or picky eaters. On another note their bread was extremely delicious; it was soft, moist, and so flavourful!

We went to Cluny for lunch on my birthday and we truly had a blast. It is a gorgeous restaurant with french decor and bread cutting station and its evident that a lot of attention to detail was paid in creating this place. The complementary bread was delicious and food was very rich and savoury. Staff were sweet and friendly as well. Will definitely come back for dinner this time!
