Overall, the experience at Cluny was mediocre. We had booked a reservation for four people as a belated mother's day celebration, and although we had indicated this when we booked, it wasn't acknowledged in any way... Our waiter even asked what we were celebrating when he saw my mother-in-law open a card=.. It's not a big deal, but it's a bit odd. When we arrived at the restaurant for our reservation, we were right on time, but told we had to wait for our table. We waited about 10-ish minutes, which in itself is not the end of the world, but we were with 2 seniors who might have appreciated being able to sit down. Service once we sat down was pretty awful too. Everyone's food showed up at the same time, except for mine, which showed up about 20 minutes later, only AFTER I had to flag down our waiter to say that my food hadn't shown up. There was no explanation offered for the delay. While the waiter was apologetic and overall seemed to be pretty friendly, I do feel like this isn't the level of service one would expect when going to a classy restaurant like Cluny. I don't expect I'll go back, and I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend the restaurant.

Food was not great. Steak was griselly and presentation poor. Omelet undercooked.
Management made amends by free dessert and discount on bill.

Came for brunch, my friends all enjoyed their meals. Our server was amazing! My Croque Madame was not that great, flaked ham? Still would definitely come back because have enjoyed other meals at Cluny.

Cluny never dissapoints, but this is the first time we tried their weekend Brunch. The Mushroom Eggs Benedict was truly fantastic, and I am a serious carnivore. The Omelette Florentine was also very tasty, as were the mimosa and Beet flavoured Bourbon drink I enjoyed. Can't wait to go back!

Everything was wonderful, from being seated before our reservation time, the fabulous service and exquisite flavours of the food. The only hitch, which did not warrant a downgrade on the overall review, was the extra time required to sort out redeeming gift cards against our bill.

This is my third or fourth time at Cluny and I have always had a good experience. The food is very good and they make the best French onion soup I've ever had. The service is very good. I recommend this restaurant highly.

Food is good but service needs improving. It might be too many customers on Sunday and their services failed to catch up with the demand.

Frog legs were on the saltier end. The waiter wasn't able to pick up a hint, and properly answer questions, came across defensive when asked about items on the menu. Portions for dinner had limited side items such as veggies etc.

It was some disappointment. I asked hostess to bring birthday candle with dessert for my friend. I wanted to surprise my friend on that very special day, but hostess apparently forgot to send my message to our waiter. After all the food were good, service too, a little bit overprice, but its ok for this location.

A very pretty restaurant. We sat on the heated patio. Service was pleasant but they were not informed about the wine or cheese that was available. The steak tartare didn't taste quite right. Salmon tartare was good as was the cheese tray and bread.

Located in the Distillery District, it brings a chic touch to the neighborhood, yet the atmosphere of the restaurant is also casual. There are so many good items on the menu that it's hard to state my favourite., just make sure to leave room for the chocolate souffle, it is excellent!

I made a reservation,

1) good welcome,
2) people were nice but I ordered a plate of frogs legs, she told me it’s a small plate so after that maybe I should consider to take an entrée and other stuff. So I specifically told to my server I keep the frogs legs and I want to add a steak frites. I also took a cocktail really good by the way. 15-20 min later I received a steak with salad I was surprised because that wasn’t my order but I said nothing, 3 min later she came to ask me nicely if everything’s good I said yes but that’s not what I asked and I explained to her exactly my original order. So she apologized and came 10 min later with my frogs legs of course whiteout my fries. So I ate some bite and asked for a takeaway and please add my fries in the takeout. While I was waiting I took another cocktail which was good and paid for everything. I didn’t like my steak but everything else was good. I have to admit even though there was many mistakes they were polite and nice

This is a beautiful restaurant. The bread is very good as well as the onion soup. They have an excellent wine list and very nice cocktails. However, I feel both the food and drink were overpriced. Other than the onion soup and bread, we did not like our food at all. I hated the crisp asparagus. My husband could not finish the mushroom tartine. The burger was the worst. Perhaps if we had ordered a raw fish entree, we would have enjoyed our dinner. Instead, we paid a lot of money for food we really didn't like. I will say the service was very good, but we were very disappointed in this restaurant.
