    The staff/service/food is superb—— It can get fairly crowded, and sometimes you feel as though your neighboring tables are too close. Overall—Cafe Cluny us such a neighborhood gem and just a wonderful experience.

    I have eaten here many times over 12 years. I don’t know why but the service that used to be great has gone down hill over the last year or so. Also the classic Cluny burger has changed . Was over charred and not as good meat. I never want to give a bad review but I am really sad that things are no longer so inviting there.

    It was a great dining experience. The managers and staff are very friendly and efficient. Food is delicious and presented in a very appetizing manner. The indoors dining areas are a little crowded; understandably so due to the quality of food served, interesting menu variety, great service and prices. Definitely we will be back soon.

    The food was excellent as was the service. The noise level was so high the six of us could not hear each other without practically screaming. Please do something to muffle the noise.

    I wanted a stress-free Thanksgiving this year and opted to dine out instead of cooking/baking. Unfortunately, the dining experience wasn’t uneventful. I thought the food was pretty good, so compliments to the chef, but the service and value needs much improvement. First, the host saw an opportunity when our party was reduced to 3 (from 4) and sat 3 grown men at a small 2-top table. They did accommodate us when I asked for a larger table but I shouldn’t have had to ask IMO. There was also “drama” at the end when one of the two servers thought we left without leaving the signed checks even though they were neatly bundled together on the table. I was standing next to her as she was telling the manager that a big table left without leaving tip/signed copy. I thought it was another table since I was standing right next to them but they both ran outside and tracked down a person in my party. It just seemed like there was a lack of communication amongst the staff - not sure why we had multiple servers either. In regards to value, I thought the cocktails/wines were overly priced ($19/each) and the desserts were all ~$18 even for a slice of pumpkin pie.

    The food and drink was not that good value. In particular the food arrived super quick and appeared to have been warmed up rather than cooked to order. This is not really acceptable in that restaurant that prides it self on its cuisine. The seating was awkward and uncomfortable being at 90° to one another and the service while well-meaning was over intrusive and uncertain. Somewhat disappointing given previous successful visits. Hopefully this is just a phase.

    We literally got the worst table in the restaurant. The wait staff kept hitting the back of my chair and head every time they passed by. The view was a stack of chairs outside the window, entirely blocking any sidewalk view. At least two other tables seating 2 (just like our party) remained unoccupied for at least an hour. Why did we get punished with this table?

    Our food and drinks were great. I highly recommend the food and cocktails. The wine was nice too. Oh, and my dessert was great! The outdoor seating was pleasant, but not perfect, and still would sit outside again. The service was a bit clunky. Our server was perfectly nice but not really attentive and didn't understand social cues such as intense eye contact to visit the table. I had to call her out and stop her in her tracks abruptly for her to notice us. It was generally very good but not really the service you'd expect at this price point.
