Posted this on Trip Advisor: Cluny going Downhill. This used to be my birthday restaurant. I used to love this restaurant but now, not sure. Yesterday, my colleague and I had dinner outside at 6.30 pm there and our waiter said that the aioli side sauce doesn’t have any lactose. Aioli is a white creamy sauce. It always has lactose. Ate there last year, and service was better. Last year’s waiter had better food options for a lactose intolerant customer. Yesterday’s 6.30 pm outside waiter doesn’t have a clue. Terrible food choices, over priced drink. Might change preferred birthday restaurant to Lena. Disappointed!

Cluny
Responded 5 days ago

Holly, thanks for reaching out. It's disappointing to hear that your experience fell short. Please know we take allergies and sensitivities very seriously here. In regard to the aioli, it is certainly lactose-free. The main ingredients in our aioli are oil, egg yolk, mustard and garlic, all of which do not contain lactose. Saying that, we understand there is no excuse for missed service. We'd love to welcome you back again to show you the experience you deserve. Best, Stuart K.

Great bistro in the Distillery District . Very good food and in spite of being under staffed, the service was attentive. Had an excellent presentation of French onion soup and a tenderloin done perfectly to medium rare. We sat outside in a wine covered patio that looked great and felt safe in these Covid times. Would highly recommend Cluny’s for everyday dining or a special occasion .

Very disappointed with the quality of the food. First my dining companion orders the tenderloin and very clearly asks for it to be medium well, with NO BLOOD! They brought her a rare steak, which she had to send back. Obviously, this has already ruined our evening when I'm eating my tough as nails, low quality strip loin. ( I regularly get much better steaks at Metro)
First and last time we'll ever dine here. Completely over rated. Great decor, though!

Food was ok. Was underwhelming given their reputation. Would only go back to their bakery - dinner overpriced, small portions, cocktails weren’t spectacular. Not impressed and would not go back.
