Great outdoor patio! Heaters were a welcome treat. Food was delicious and filling. Best French Inion Soup.
We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience! We look forward to welcoming you in again soon for some more French onion soup sometime soon. Until then, Stuart K.
The outdoor patio is great! Lots of heaters and tables are socially distanced. French onion soup is a MUST!
Frankie, We're happy we made sure you had a memorable time. Your must-try recommendation of our French onion soup is a favourite of ours as well. We would love to welcome you back again soon to discover more delicious flavours! Best, Stuart K.
Lovely service, excellent outdoor ambience and comfort.
Thank you for this exceptional review! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience, and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Best, Stuart K.
Our table was situated in between two heaters pointed away from us. It was cold as hell, but overall a nice enough experience considering current circumstances. The restaurant would do better to hang the heaters all facing the same direction so that each area gets *some* heat instead of some tables being blasted while others freeze.
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant, Rachel. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience, and appreciate your feedback regarding our outdoor heaters. We do hope that you will give us the chance to show you a more memorable visit should you choose to visit us again. All the best, Stuart K
Excellent service from our server. He explained each meal to us.
Dennis, we're happy to hear that the service you received made our place exceptional for you! We'd love to welcome you back again soon to try some more of our tasty menu options. Best, Stuart K.
Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in distillery district. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing – everything we tasted melted in other mouths. Highly recommend!
Thank you for the phenomenal feedback. It was an absolute pleasure welcoming you in for an evening of the five-star food and service we're known for and you most definitely deserve. We'll make sure to pass along your compliments to our chef and team, and we look forward to welcoming you back for another lovely meal. All the very best, Stuart K
Food was very well prepared and the wait staff was incredible. Dined on the patio in the evening and was a lovely affair
Bruce, our guests deserve only the absolute best! Thank you for showing your support. We'd love to have you join us again soon. Best, Stuart K.
Always love this place.
Holly, it means the world to have your support. We look forward to welcoming you again sometime soon! Best, Stuart K.
It was nice. It wasn’t over the top but I think under the circumstances and COVID it was nice and the service was good.
It was a pleasure to have you join us, Allison. We truly appreciate your support. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and service. We'll be looking forward to your next visit. Until then, Stuart K.
Difficult to truly evaluate during the Covid closure of inside dining. We were pleased that there were outdoor heaters, however, and the service was attentive and helpful.
I've previously been there for dinner prior to the current situation, and I enjoyed the food and the ambiance.
We're trying to support our local restaurants, and hope everyone will be able to hang in.
David, it is now more than ever that we appreciate your support. Thank you for coming down! We are glad to see that you enjoyed your experience and look forward to welcoming you again sometime soon. All the best, Stuart K.
Cluny never disappoints me. I did have a good time yet again.
Specifics: Old Fashioned (smoky one) was excellent, and the tuna was good but did not wow me.
Another pretty good day at the Cluny.
We are happy to hear you have enjoyed your experience with us many times! Our old fashioned is a great way to treat yourself. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon to discover more favourites! Best, Stuart K.
Our server Vince was excellent.
Will definitely go back.
Would like to try brunch next time.
Hoping resto's don't close.
Sara, thank you for taking the time to show your support. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us and that Vince took such good care of you! We look forward to hosting you again sometime soon for brunch. Our heated patio is waiting! Until then, Stuart K.
Great place to meet up for a mimosa and brunch! Highly recommended!!
It's flattering to hear you enjoy our outdoor ambiance, drinks, and cuisine! We hope to see you again in the future. Best, Stuart K.
Awesome patio seating ambience, but yeah that was it.
The cocktails were pretty ordinary
The food selection was also very normal with very small portions and high price
When asked for what would you recommend for dessert, he said “I don’t eat desserts”, which was so unusual because we were looking forward to have dessert at this place.
The bread basket which should have been complimentary for such a highly priced menu was not.
I would say just go there for a drink for the ambience and plan to eat somewhere else later.
Disappointed that we waited 30 mins for our reservation and another 15 mins after we had been seated for a server to come to our table.
You're right, you should never have to wait as long as you did to be seated and then to receive service at your table. For that, I apologize. That said, as regulations change, we're continuously making adjustments to almost every single part of how service operates. Please know your feedback is super helpful in seeing how these changes are being received, so thank you for reaching out. We hope you will give us another chance to show you the experience you truly deserve. Best, Stuart K.
wonderful experience. Thank you. It was great to get out in a safe environment.
Thanks for your review, Gern! We look forward to welcoming you back for another exceptional experience in the future. All the best, Stuart K.
The Cluny patio is lovely. They have super-sonic heaters every ~6 ft or so on the ceiling frame and it was very cozy on a fall evening.
Our server was great and the timing of his service was perfect. We were not rushing and neither was he.
We started with cocktails and both had the steak frites. Everything was prepared with care and the deep fried asparagus was a great caloric splurge and perfect with our main course.
We are not comfortable dining indoors during Covid pandemic so we'll be dining on the Cluny patio for as long as the weather allows.
Thanks for our server - employee #25106 - for a great evening! Sorry I should have asked for your name!
Thank you for your kind words about our space! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us, and we hope that you'll join us again the next time you are around. Until then, Stuart K.
The salt add and food were great. We had a fantastic time with our boys. The patio was warm enough on a cool night and still open air for anyone with COVID concerns. Great experience. We were well taken care of and the food was delicious
It was a pleasure having you join us Erin. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and service. We'll be looking forward to your next visit. Best, Stuart K.
The music was loud, but great work with physical distancing, and spacing tables. Great service, friendly staff, excellent food!!!!
Thanks for coming by, Vicky! It was a delight to have you here with us to explore some awesome dishes. We hope to see you again soon! Best, Stuart K.
Had the best time, the servers were very sweet and accommodating. This is one of my favourite places for French food in the city, more so even because of the ambiance.
Dylan our service was amazing + incredible food and atmosphere. will be recommending and coming back
We always enjoy the cluny great food and service and once again Ian was great!
Trish, we're grateful for you taking a moment to leave this review! We look forward to seeing you the next time you are around. Best, Stuart K.
If you are missing places like le select or la Societe you won't find a replacement for those here. If you are heading to the d district and are looking for something decent enough this will do just fine then. Stick to the basics and avoid disappointment .
The service was amazing. The amount of food is ok, not a lot of options for dinner. The brunch menu looks good, will come back to try it
It was a pleasure welcoming you in. It is wonderful you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to your return and another lovely meal. All the best, Stuart K
French Onion soup was incredible! Patio was amazing! It was a great place for a date.
Rob, we're glad you enjoyed our famous French onion soup! We'd be delighted to welcome you back to try some more of our specialties sometime soon. Best, Stuart K.
Consistently good food, great service, comfortable setting on the patio.
Fernando, we're grateful for you taking a moment to leave this review! We look forward to seeing you at Cluny again. Best, Stuart K
I have been to Cluny’s many times, unfortunately this time the food was Completely cold (almost icy) and the outdoor patio had a terrible draft. The heat lamps were not enough and did not reach out table. It was unfortunate.
Eva, it was our pleasure to welcome you and your guests back. We genuinely appreciate your support throughout this time, though I am very sorry to hear that your experience fell short of expectations. Please know we would have been happy to try to accommodate by turning up the heater, or moving you to another area, had you brought this to our attention. We do hope that you will give us another chance to show you the 5-star experience you deserve and we are known for. Best, Stuart K
Absolutely my favorite place for Sunday brunch in Toronto.
One of my favorite places in the world is NYC and it is my ritual to go to Balthazar for Sunday brunch when I am there.
Toronto is a mini NYC to me and Cluny has become my Toronto favourite.
It means the world to us that you enjoy our famous brunch. We would be happy to welcome you back to Cluny again for more of your favorites. Best, Stuart K
This time tried the beef hash, eggs which not disappoint Once again, excellent serve and overall service. The heated patio was a bonus
We're happy to hear you enjoyed our famous brunch! We are looking forward to welcoming you back again to try some more of our flavourful menu. Best, Stuart K.
Great food and ambiance. Loved the patio and the heaters kept us warm on a cool day. Service was great. Bought a few things from their pastry shop and they were all good.
kinda noisy and didn't keep social distance very well.
dishes are not tasty overall, onion soup was salty, bread over cooked
We are sorry to hear that your experience was anything less than outstanding. Please know that the safety of both our staff and guests is our number one priority and we are following all guidelines set out by our local health authorities. A manager would have been happy to speak with you, had you any concerns regarding service or food. We hope you'll give us another chance to show you a better experience, but if not, we are sorry if we aren't for you. All the very best, Stuart K.
Great location and ambience. Meal was pretty good but the service is what rates the highest. Oh and it is pretty.
I specified it was a birthday celebration and I was expecting a complementary dessert to sing happy birthday.
Also, we had an accident in the table where the waiter dropped 2 mimosas on one of us and we just got a ''Sorry''
We’re very sorry to hear that your recent brunch visit was anything less than extraordinary. We followed up with our weekend crew who confirmed the mimosa accident. There is nothing to excuse service that misses the mark, so we apologize that a manager was not alerted. We would love the opportunity to make things right with you. Please call the restaurant directly at 416-203-2632 and ask for me. If I am not available, please leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP. Best, Stuart K., DOO
Had a great night out with friends. First in a long time. We chose the heated patio and it was lovely. The ambiance on the patio was spectacular. We really felt away from the rest of the District. Service was equally spectacular. I was a little disappointed in how the Duck Confit was served but made up for it with delicious desserts. Yum. Can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for this exceptional review, Wendy! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed our cuisine so much, and we hope to welcome you back again soon to discover more favourites. Best, Stuart K.
I went with a friend and my 7 year old daughter. We all had 3 courses and cleared our plates, even my picky eater. It was delicious. Felt comfortable bringing my daughter too but still felt like a little fancy night out. Great experience. I’ll definitely go back
It's wonderful to have your support! You can count on us to always deliver on delicious cuisine, drinks, and atmosphere! We hope you make it back our way sometime soon. All the best, Stuart K
Once again awesome food and service thanks Ian:) and as alway the French onion soup is a must and I would recommend the madame duck:) xo
Trish, we're glad you enjoyed our famous French onion soup and Madame duck! We'd be delighted to welcome you back to try some more of our flavourful menu sometime soon. Best, Stuart K.
My favourite restaurant in all of Toronto. Always delicious, gorgeous atmosphere, and incredibly professional & polite staff.
This is so wonderful, Alana! We're so glad that everything was perfect for you, and it sounds like you had a great time. Hope to see you again! Best, Stuart K
Food was really good. We sat outside in the patio which is beautiful and well ventilated. I just found the metal chairs or the thickness of the cushions a bit uncomfortable. However, not all the chairs are like that in the patio and wouldn’t stop me for going again for the food!
Thanks for coming by, Farah! It was a delight to have you here with us to explore some awesome dishes. We hope to see you again soon! Best, Stuart K
We held our wedding reception at Cluny and went back for our first wedding anniversary. The food is always exceptional and the service has never been anything less than excellent. We sat on the patio due to the pandemic; not quite as nice as the dining room but still charming. Looking forward to our next visit there!
This is so wonderful, Jessica! We're so glad that everything was perfect for you, and it sounds like you had a wonderful meal for your first anniversary. We are already looking forward to your next visit! Best, Stuart K
Awesome all around.
We're happy to hear you love our restaurant. We are looking forward to welcoming you back again. Best, Stuart K.
