    No Wow Factor

    Since we live around the corner, my wife and I decided to give it a try. We had the Tuna Tartare as an appetizer and it was average. I ordered the Hanger Steak Frites which was good but not exceptional. My wife tried the Roasted Cod and was not impressed either. The atmosphere is great and service is very good but if you are looking for great food than you probably would be disappointed. Also the serving size is a bit on the small size.

    I live around the corner and have eaten here several times...breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant disappoints...the food is just OK, breakfast and lunch are over-priced, and all portions are on the small side. Worth trying at dinner: Salad w. poched egg and the shortribs.

    I've been twice to Cafe Cluny and found it somewhat disappointing both times - given all they hype. Food is just average and VERY expensive for what you get - not to mention TINY portions. But the atmosphere is great and cozy and the service is fine. Too expensive for nothing spectacular from the kitchen.

    Great brunch spot

    I had brunch at Cafe Cluny last weekend, and had possibly the best French toast I've ever eaten. I couldn't identify what made it so good exactly, but it was certainly enough to bring me back again. The menu is somewhat limited, however. Service was very good; the staff was very attentive to taking coats, bringing out coffee quickly, etc. I went at about 11:00 and there were plenty of tables; by the time we left, the restaurant was completely full, so go early. Cozy but clean and bright atmosphere.

    Cozy West Village scene...

    Exactly as the title says... the perfect, cozy West village restaurant, sceney enough to be fun, cozy enough to be everyday.

    We were really excited to go to Cafe Cluny because we had read a lot of the buzz and gotten a recommendation from a friend. Unfortunately, we were really disappointed. First, the atmosphere is somewhat odd - while somewhat pretty, the nature pictures on the wall simply didn't go with anything else and are a little creepy. More importantly the food was truly overrated. Most of our party had steak, which while you wouldn't think would be rocket science to do well - tasted pretty subpar. One person had swordfish - while billed as "au poivre" there was no poivre, nor was there anything to the dish - it was bland, and the presentation was pitiful. The service was nice, but they mucked up our order and while being reasonably apologetic, didn't even comp our coffees. All in all we would skip this one and quickly head to one of the other restaurants in the west village.

    Where's the Vegetarian French Food?

    Since I live up the block from Cafe Cluny I watched it morph into a new restaurant. I thought great some place new to try Unfortunately, there is not one vegetarian entree on the menu. Yes, I know it's a french restaurant, and I know french restaurants are not noted for being vegetarian friendly. Still it would be nice to have an entree or two for a vegetarian neighbor. Paris has some really good vegetarian restaurants. Maybe the Cafe Cluny should expand its horizons and offer a chice for none flesh eaters.
