    We sat outside, so I can't comment on the noise level inside. The food was great as always. Broccolini is a nice option on the side, but I miss the old Brussels sprouts dish. The salmon dish was delish!

    We sat outside at a small but cozy table on the sidewalk. The service was great, and so was the food. We both had fish entrees and they were excellent. Nice wines by the glass. Great place.

    One of our favorite restaurants. Food is always delicious and we love the atmosphere . Overall always great value for the quality today however . I ordered the kale salad and added the steak which was an additional $22 for 4 oz which I felt was overpriced . For the size and quality of the steak. Our special soup with was awesome. Fresh and refreshing. Shrimp cocktail was amazing. The profiteroles for dessert was incredible and a huge portion. (3) Also miss tge cheese option for dessert which we had a few years ago and we still talk about how delicious it was.

    It was surprisingly noisy in outdoor seating yesterday. People loudly talking. Meanwhile no one dined indoors, which was empty. I would have preferred indoors but my companion has the Covid fear.

    Good ambience and food but my waitress (Laura F) was putting out weird and uncomfortable energy like she did not want to serve me. All good though, her fellow waiters stopped by my table frequently to make sure I was tended to.

    Our wedding anniversary was acknowledged as we were sat, but then we became what felt like an unwelcomed afterthought. We had an odd table (sitting caddy corner from each other in a tight space), with a view of a stack of chairs outside and a serving station. The staff was not at all accommodating when asked if we could be moved to something more fitting of an anniversary and offered no consolation or even an apology from a manager. They couldn’t have cared less. I understand when these things happen, but the staff made the poor situation worse. I was embarrassed. Was so excited to go back after a long lockdown as Cafe Cluny was one of our favorites. Clearly the feeling isn’t mutual.

    I have been a frequent guest at Cafe Cluny for over a decade, however this experience was in sharp contrast to prior visits. I can’t help but wonder if the restaurant has jumped the sharks. On this visit, my husband patiently waited for his oatmeal to appear for twenty minutes after the balance of the table received their food. Seriously, oatmeal guys?! Our waiter was so off his game that we resorted to asking other staff members to intervene.

    They couldn’t seem to grasp the concept of medium rare when it came to salmon. I was very disappointed in the service and food. I have been here a number of times and it was delicious. They need better communication in the kitchen.

    Unfortunately had an issue with a server. I couldn’t find our server to ask her about our drinks. So I asked the first one that was near our table. She told me she wasn’t our server. First time ever that another server gets mad because I reach out to them even though she wasn’t our designated server. Too bad. Love the place. Made me feel uncomfortable.

    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.
