Service was very attentive. We had three servers covering our table. Portions are small so don't dine here if you are really hungry. The double espresso looked like a single. Prices are generally high. $9 for a handful of fries. If you are vegan or plant-based, there really are NO options that will satisfy you (given no protein options available).

This was our second visit to Cluny. The food and ambiance were great as usual, this visit was made even better by our server Armando. Perfect level of attentiveness, very knowledgeable on the menu, super friendly and knew when to give us space. Double thumbs up.

We had a nice brunch at Cluny's on a Saturday morning. Great food and ambiance but rather pricy.

Decor and ambiance are great- one of my favourite. However the food is dissatisfying. The monkfish was completely dry and tasteless. Service was mediocre. Overall disappointed.

The hanger steak was so tough, could not chew it. The fries and rapini were good but lukewarm.
There were at least 4 employees walking around the restaurant to assess if we were almost fine with our dinner so the best party could sit, not pleasant atmosphere for a chic bistro

They had a mishap in the souffle and given it would take another 30 mins to make from fresh, went over the top with an array of their other pastries and chocolate desserts. Including take-aways for all the guests.

Kudos to Joshua and manager to turning something that would have ended night off poorly into a story that others will now read about!

Very pricey . If you’re a wealthy person you’ll be fine with this place because other than not getting value for the money it’s worth a high rating.

Always love Cluny especially for brunch. There is a great selection of breakfast and lunch items. I especially like the coq au vin poutine and the waffles. Best French restaurant in Toronto.

Unfortunately, I was not impressed the second time around and embarrassed that I made this a business dinner occasion.
From the hostess who re-seated with a very displeasing attitude and that scowl on her face was like we inconvenienced her to re-seat us to a table more appropriate for a business dinner meeting (as stated at reservation). They brought the sides first without the main entree and the timing of the main entree was horribly delayed. My fois gras that was ordered WITH my filet Mignon came first and sat there cold while waiting for my filet mignon to arrive much later and cooked well done. Not medium as preferred. So I had to send that back. What a waste! Sadly, as much as we raved about this restaurant I will gladly stay away.

Great venue, ambiance, and friendly professional staff!
The food was delicious!
We were 5 people, it was the first time for 3 of the group and they loved it.

The only suggestions for improvement:
a) we reserved in advance online and were seated at a table with the bench and chairs; the bench is really low and makes it feel like you can eat off your plate without hands. The benches need to be replaced or modified to be at the same height as the chairs, thus making them a proper eating distance from the table

b) French onion soup a little overpriced

Thanks

We had never been before, and were very pleased with all aspects of Cluny. The frog legs were a treat as we had not had them before. We each had a different main, pork bellies, tenderloin and lamb. The presentation was every bit as good as the food. Rich taste, and good portions. Our server, Maggie, was very pleasant, attentive but not overly. The timing of the starter, and mains were perfect. Everything went down well with a good bottle of wine to top it off. I would highly recommend Cluny and plan to come again.

I would not recommend it. It is expensive and the food is below average. Our family of six went for a birthday celebration dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was excellent. But when it comes to food, we were very disappointed. We expected something extraordinary (the food we ordered was very expensive) and it was below average. Salmon pilaf with wild rice was tasteless, in some fatty liquid with green peas and rice floating, like mayo dissolved in water. Salmon skin was burnt. The lobster was also in some fatty sauce, hard to enjoy. Bread and desserts were very good.

Although I've been to Cluny many times, I have never been there for lunch on a very busy Saturday. It was super energetic (loud) and my 70-something guests were not pleased. I thought our server was amazing and attentive, especially impressive as he was very busy. I have never seen every seat occupied before and the staff were super busy.

I ordered the burger for the first time. It was beautifully cooked (medium) and included shoestring fries (absolutely greaseless and amazing) as well as a gigantic onion ring topping the burger. The burger had to be cut in half for me to attempt getting it in my mouth. As hungry as I was, I could not finish the whole thing (I left most of the bun) or finish all the fries.

As always, the coffees are amazing and the ambiance too. Cluny is definitely my favourite Distillery District restaurant.

There is always room for improvement.

The place is beautiful, the terrace is very nice specially with the lights.
The service is kind and with great smiles.

However, the food and its quality is not there. The crude was soggy , fries should not be these days the only side plate on the main course. tendencies are less North american and more international .

Presentation is key and your competitors are delivering that.

It is a pity since we used to recommend and attend your place and now we are thinking not going back because of the menu selection .

Maybe a rethink and refresh your menu with a more stylish dishes on the menu that go with the quality of the place would be something to think about.

You have a great place, location and a real professional team greeting your customers . Congrats for that ! :-)

Thank you.
