Had friends visiting me from another country. Since I reserved the table for a special occasion I was asked for some details and we were surprised with a simply divine desert with a lovely message on it! It made our dinner even more special that it was already!

Your restaurant was a great experience. However, we had some confusion when the bill came. On the reservation and the menu stated there would be a 17.5% Gratuity. That was fine until after it was paid the server told me that the gratuity had not been added to the bill. It got fixed by I found it embarrassing. If this is not a policy then please remove.
Thanks

I made a reservation and for 3 people at 11:30am on Sat. Nov 11. I received the confirmation email, however when I arrived at the restaurant they didn't have the reservation. Thankfully, we were seated right away.

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law's first time there and they really like the food, ambiance. It was a good place to have a catch up visit.

The woman at the front was extremely rude. She told us she could not fulfill our reservation in an aggressive tone. When we asked why, she said "would you like to speak to the manager" and then ignored us. I will definitely not be back.

The seafood tower was amazing but my steak fries were cold. The service started out great then took a nose dive. The meal took at least 40 minutes to arrive and the waitress didn't even keep an eye on our drinks or notify us of a delay. Maybe she forgot about our table.

We loved it! We are a dedicated foodie family. My mom and dad who are both 88 years young and have literally travelled the world, declared it was one of the best restaurants they had ever been to. I agree!! Our server was outstanding. just the right touch of friendly and professional.

Had a lovely graduation luncheon here with my family of 10. We had the Brunch Menu and I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the plates. We were expecting small dishes for high prices but I was pleased with the value. Huge plates, great food, very fair price. The restaurant itself was so lovely; an elegant, French bistro setting that felt authentic, charming, and upscale. True to it’s name (boulangerie), there was a self serve bread and pastry counter displayed beautifully. Gorgeous displays of seafood and French champagne adorned the restaurant.

Service was impeccable. We are not an easy bunch to handle let alone serve- so many requests and we are loud and picky! But our servers were so incredibly kind and patient and so quick to serve us at every request. They brought me a lovely congratulatory dessert. It was all I could have wanted! Thank you Cluny, I will be back!

Sesame asparagus, french onion soup, any fish entree and the flaming vanilla crepe dessert. Great place to take your friends, clients or dates whom you want to impress. Very interesting combination of flavours that in a subtle way will play with your taste buds.
Ambience is beautiful, the seating, the cutlery, the choice of colour combinations are pleasing to the eyes. Servers are very accommodating, polite and will check on you at just the right intervals of time in case you need anything. I have never had an unpleasant or even just an average experience so far in my past visits. Highly recommend Cluny!

The seasoning on the veal tomahawk overpowered the entire dish. Sirloin steak frites erred on the saltier side. They also changed the way the lobster bisque was prepared - had beans in it which didn't pair well with the lobster. Overall the food was disappointing as we had a really good experience last time we were here.
