    Overall a good experience. We went when it first opened for dinner on a Sunday. It was not crowded so service was very good. The food was good and the mini donuts for dessert were really tasty. Slightly over priced but I’m beginning to think that may be everywhere now.

    Everything was fine, except for the fact that I specifically asked for a table that truly sat five and not just a four top with a table stuck on the end. What I got was a four top with a table stuck on the end. We were cramped and therefore cannot recommend.

    Overall good spot for the west village but it seems to have gone down hill. I used to go here a lot 5+ years ago and it’s nowhere near as good. The tuna burger was average at best and the margarita was way too sweet. Bummer, as I love the location and ambience.

    Not a warm welcome from host, seated outside when booking was for inside. Food pretty good, service average at best and tip reflected that. Can do much better, very poor in comparison to previous visits.

    Wonderful first experience at this charming neighborhood bistro that my local dining partner recommended. From the best Bloody Mary in memory (at the convivial bar) to the quintessential Steak Frites au poivre, three of us reveled in the cozy ambience, attentive (but discreet and not overbearing) service, and perfect food and wine pairing. Never feeling rushed, we were able to enjoy a leisurely catch-up. Five stars with more visits to come!

    It was great to come back here and it was better than ever. We sat outside, a little cool and the ambience was just OK, but who could do better these days? Shout out to the staff who were terrific to a person. I had buffalo chicken appetizer which was good, and the spinach ravioli and zucchini fries, both of which were excellent. I was delighted. My friend had the lobster roll which she said was great. We shared the sticky toffee pudding - excellent. Now I am looking for a reason to go back!

    Short Attention Span Version: Really? You spill an entire tray of drinks on me and i have to sit through the rest of my meal with a wet arm, wet leg, and wet shoe, and you don't even comp me a single drink or a single dessert on a $350 bill for four? Full version: I fully appreciate that accidents can happen, and know there was no mal intent, but an entire tray of drinks was spilt on me, and my arm, leg, and shoe were soaked. The waitress was verbally apologetic. I didn't make a scene about it, and in fact tried to minimize the issue so the rest of my party and the table next to us could get on with their meal, but I had to sit through the rest of my meal wet and uncomfortable. I would have left if we were not with old friends who were only in town for the night. When my bill arrived I was shocked to see that not a single gesture was made to compensate me for the incident. Not a single drink or single dessert was removed from the bill. The more I have thought about it the more angry I have become. Where was the manager? In a well run restaurant a manager would have immediately appeared at the table to apologize and do something to make it right. There was none. Even on our way out nothing was said or acknowledged. This is the memory I am left with for Cafe Cluny. Can't even recall the food.

    The server asked for allergies and I said wheat. My salmon came out over some noodles that I had to ask about. Basically it was a “whoops”. Meanwhile my dinner guest ate his entire meal while I waited for a redo of my dish. No compensation for their huge mistake. Probably won’t be back.

    Cafe ClunyResponded on June 28, 2022Hi Thomas, I'm so sorry to hear that you had this experience with us. I did call and leave a message letting you know that I would like to pay for your next meal, if you would be willing to give us another chance. Again apologies where they are due, we normally take extreme caution with all allergies. Please free free to call anytime if you have a change of heart and would be willing to return. (212) 255-6900 All my best, Thomas High General Manager

    Service was not great. Waitresses never came back after meal was served to check on us. Water bottle was never refilled. Even the check with my credit card sat on the table for a long time despite most of the customers had left for the evening.

    Food was excellent with the exception of the rice bowl dish which was a salty mess. We sat outside to noise level was good. (This is not to say the noise level inside is not good. In the past I've always found it acceptable.)
