Cozy, romantic spot – Cafe Cluny is a gorgeous restaurant that enjoys a wonderful ambience, soft lighting, and quaint furnishings. The steak I had was delicious and the fries (I know they are just fries but still worth a mention) were yummy! Very friendly, efficient service. It is in a gorgeous part of the west village and I would recommend it to anyone seeking an intimate dining experience.

Great Experience Every Time – This place never fails. I have been here a number of times and you get what you pay for. The soups, salads, and entrees are always amazing and worth every penny (and substitutions are not frowned on). The wine and drinks are well paired with the menu. The service is prompt and accomodating. The atmosphere is great for romance, or simply for parties. This is a staple to my dining rotation.

I aspire to eat at least 3 meals a week here – There isn't an item on the menu that I haven't tried and there isn't an item on the menu that I haven't enjoyed. Great off the beaten path place to have a breakfast meeting.

Need new door staff!! – Wow, I've lived in new York for ten years and I've never encountered such a rude and unaccommodating door host in all my time here! She was snappy and dismissive and then placed three of us on a table for two, so we spent the entire brunch bumping knees. Definitely not worth the cost of the avergage food. Try somewhere else in the West Village for brunch instead...

the most amazing dining experience I'ver ever had – The food and service here is well worth the amount of money you spend - and it is pricey. I was worried that I would be disappointed after spending so much on a meal, but I left having probably the most amazing dining experience I've ever had.

The service was great, the atmosphere was comfortable and not pretentious at all, and they were very accommodating. I will definitely be searching for any occassion to make it back here for another experience.

My Favorite Restaurant in NY! – I took my husband for his birthday to Cafe Cluny and we had such an amazing meal - the restaurant is not only romantic and set in such a beautiful part of the W. Village, but the food is also unbelievably delicious. Matt, the maitre'd, made sure we were seated at a good table and came over to us at the end to make sure everything was 100%. Between the ambiance, the food, the location & the menu choices, you cannot go wrong at Cafe Cluny. We will be back very soon!

You must try this place – I really enjoyed my experience at Cafe Cluny last night for multiple reasons. I love the locate, West 12th is such a charming street. I think the interior is really cozy. The waiters and bartenders were very attentive and lastly, the food was excellent and fresh. I would highly recommend making reservations because even on a Tuesday night we had to wait 25 minutes for our seat. Not that I minded because they have a great bar while you wait. I wouldn't recommend this place for quiet conversation, because it's crowded and noisy, but at the same time, if you don't mind those things, it's still a great place to go with someone to catch up. Try the scallop and pancetta appetizer... actually, just try everything.

Great Service – I have eaten at cluny several times.

Their food is very good. A bit pricey but well worth it. The service is very efficient yet maybe a bit uptight...

The steak with fries is great and the broiled chicken is made to perfection..

Go early or make reservations.

Our new favorite – Cafe Cluny is now my favorite restaurant in NYC. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and nothing could have been better. He even said it was a "home run." I took them a cheesecake from a bakery to give him for dessert, they didn't even charge me the plating fee, and EVERY SINGLE staffer wished my boyfriend a happy birthday...even before the cake came out. The service was incredible, and the food was even better. He had the chicken, and it was the most tender and delicious chicken I have perhaps ever tasted. I had the duck confit (the special) and outside of Peking-style duck it was the best duck, hands down, that I have ever eaten. The skin was crispy and delicious and the meat was tender and juicy, not tough and dry. We have both vowed to make Cafe Cluny our new "regular" haunt. We were also so glad that the portions were smaller...normal sized food instead of a trough. We left Cafe Cluny perfectly sated and not over-stuffed. Best place I've eaten this year.

Good brunch – Great restaurant. Good Service, we had brunch only and the brioche toast is fantastic. Will go again. We dropped in early so no reservation was needed, but it did get crowded later on.
