Cluny was unexpectedly great. Wasn’t sure what to expect based on previous reviews. My partner and I celebrated his Birthday at Cluny. We shared a couple of apps. Highly recommend the steak tartare (large portion and delicious). We had the burger which was good (the fries are excellent) as well as one of the fish entrees. I had indicated it was for a Birthday on the reso and wasn’t sure if they would do anything special. They came out with a dessert. A perfect way to end the evening. Will definitely be back.

Very creative menu well executed. The service was caring and attentive. My biggest problem was the chairs. My husband is 6’ and I am 5’. Neither of us was comfortable. The back of the chairs had no padding. We took 2 pads off one additional chair and put one behind me and one under my husband. It was far from perfect but a little better. For the price of most dinners, I thought the seating could be improved. The discomfort was over ridden by the meal and service. Will certainly return but I do hope the chairs will be corrected

We were celebrating our 40th Anniversary . I had indicated to them of this occasion and requested a table for 4 and 1 high chair. We have been to this restaurant many times and have always enjoyed the ambiance ,food and service. However, this time we were given a cramped corner facing the kitchen along the back on the way to the kitchen. We had dinner reservation for 6.30 pm and when we arrived,the place was quite empty. The food was mediocre. We had ordered Gnocchi for the baby...it was an embarassment for the restaurant to serve this dish. They had boiled Gnocchi and put it in a plate along with canned sauce and few sprinkle of parmesan. It tasted horrible and went uneaten. Grilled Monk fish and Atlantic Turbot was also a disappointment. The server who attended was indifferent and the service was no where what we expected...having been there before. I regret to say we will not be coming back here!

Not the first time I've been here, and it won't be the last. Cluny is my go-to restaurant every time I have dinner before a Soulpepper performance at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, just right across from the restaurant. I love the diverse menu, using a variety of ingredients in a very unique way. Their selection of mixed drinks, cocktails, and wine list pairs very well with the menu items.

Great food. Amazing French cooking. Delicious. Not overly expensive, but more than a typical dinner out. Service is not the fastest, but they are very nice, professional, and provide great recommendations. The grilled octopus and hangar steak frites are amazing.

This was one of the most unsurpassed dining experiences I've had the pleasure of attending. The ambiance of Cluny was beautiful. The meal was marvellously presented as well as delicious. The service was amazing. Our server was attentive, friendly, witty and efficient. We were celebrating a friend's birthday at the time and the staff made sure that guests were taken care of. Cluny also included a specialized mousse dessert for our birthday friend which added a lovely touch to the evening. Our table had a fabulous time at Cluny and we'll be sure to keep this restaurant in mind for future events. Thank you :)

We have always gone to Cluny's on a week-end -- very busy, crowded, impersonal and rushed service. This time we went for Thursday lunch -- what a difference! Not as crowded and the service was wonderful.

Unfortunately, I still find the frites arrive at the table cold. If I send them back, I have to eat my entree in order for it not to get cold while waiting for the frites to re-appear. This has happened on several occasions, so I would suggest to management that they find some way of keeping the frites hot until ready to serve.

Otherwise, the food is very good, the ambience is great and the decor is spectacular.

Try going on a week-day for lunch!!

The food is "good", but it is very over priced.
I made an online reservation for a birthday, and asked if a birthday dessert was possible.
My birthday request was completely ignored.
When you make an online reservation, they ask if this is for a birthday etc.
So why ignore the birthday dessert request? Maybe just remove the birthday question in the online reservation website?
Anyways, Disappointed overall.

If this survey may include also Cluny’s Bakery products, this review is meant for it:
- Pastry products are overpriced (e.g. small pistachio rectangular cakes)
- Some purchased croissants were burnt

Please look into these aspects. Otherwise your restaurant is an almost perfect one! Well done for the chef and the waiters!

No air inside. Food seemed like it would be tasty but it was very disappointing. We ordered 4 apps between 2 of us to split and try different items and they all came at once. There was no room on the table. They said that was normal for everything to all come out at once and it be that way. Also, the table side steak tartare is them mixing a bowl of everything already in the bowl. You do not see the proces which you normally would have expect at table side. On top of that, it was the most awful tartare I’ve ever had and tartare is one of my favorite items to order and try wherever I go. Service was awful. Would never go back and do not recommend.

Went for my wife’s birthday. Food was great and service excellent (from a staff perspective). We waited more than adequate to get our table (which was reserved in advance) and then also quite some time for the appetizers. The hostess apologized and they compensated us with a very nice mix of desserts plate for my wife (included the profiterole she initially ordered) which was free in the end (as was the other dessert we ordered - the chocolate bomb) - this was really a nice surprise! Both desserts were delicious!!! For food, the appetizers - 1/2 dozen oysters, beef tartare, seafood bisque, frog legs, salted cod donuts and the fried Camembert fondue, all were excellent. For mains we only got 2 - the hangar steak and the liver w onions, both came with fries. Best liver I ever had, and my wife was really pleased about the steak - I tasted it, extremely flavourful but a bit on the chewy side (but the waiter - Chad - told us already that, so we knew what to expect). All in all a wonderful experience (despite the wait). Not cheap, but worth it imho. This was our second time actually, and I’m sure we’ll be back!

Food, especially vegetarian items were excellent.
Server knowledgeable and personable.
We sat on the terrace which was peaceful and conducive to conversation.
The interior of the restaurant was horrendously noisy; impossible to converse without raising your voice.
Tables for two are uncomfortably small. The hostess refused to seat us at a larger table even though there were many free and remained so during the time we were there.
