My 4th time at Cluny’s and I think it should be my last.

Food is just ok...and I need to remember that next time someone suggests going there. It was an all-round agreement with our group that the food is just blah.

I ordered the farmhouse breaky (I think that’s what it was called) with eggs over easy...showed up with the eggs beyond fully cooked well done and the sausage couldn’t have been more over cooked, ultra dry and essentially the last step before entering the burnt stage. The potatoes, unlike the eggs and sausage, were not fully cooked, had to push half of them aside.

My wife’s chicken Cobb salad had some fairly questionable quality chicken. Definitely wasn’t freshly grilled. She loves salad, and ate maybe half of it and gave up. Said it wasn’t worth bringing home.

Waiter was nice, friendly and helpful.

All in all, a neat place, with mediocre food at best.

The server was delightful. The wine she recommended was very nice. The food, except dessert, was dissapointing. It was pretty empty so it felt like a barn.

Nice ambiance with friendly staff. The appetizers were good - something "bites" was excellent. Unfortunately the main course was wanting. My steak was cold in the middle. I ordered it Medium to Medium rare but "please more on the medium side". I know this a bit of an ask but the steak came very much on the rare side. I didn't have the nerve to send it back as it was a much smaller cut than I was expecting and I figured it would be no big deal to just finish it. The accompanying French fries were good. My wife's soufflé was just okay. Nothing to write home about...A friend who joined us did not finish his meal and said it to was just okay. Can't remember what he ordered. In any case we are not compelled to go back to this restaurant.

My girlfriend was promoted and I wanted to treat her to a nice dinner at a place we really enjoy. Cluny is not only great food but a romantic ambiance and modern decor.

Our dinner service was excellent and our server was very attentive and knowledgeable.

I had requested a special desert while booking through OpenTable and Cluny and our server made sure it was taken care of. The desert was decadent and flashy enough to suit our special occasion.

I would highly recommend Cluny for any occasion.

We had a wonderful experience, with the exception of a some rather fishy raw clams on our mini seafood tower that we suspect may have contributed to our currently very upset stomachs. Avoid the clams, but everything else we ate was excellent, the service was exceptional, and the atmosphere was lively and pleasant.

I went to Cluny with a friend to celebrate our birthdays while visiting from Iowa and we absolutely loved it. The service was top-notch, the waiter’s recommendations were delicious (French onion soup, fondue, and frog legs) and we loved the ambience. We really loved that the restaurant provided us a birthday dessert and an unforgettable experience. Would love to come back again the next time we are in Canada.

My birthday cannot eat in the restaurant, but it is truly understandable. However, the steak is not valued as it is 42.99 dollar

Definitely an excellent option if you are looking for modern french cuisine. The lively vibe is nicely accentuated by an attentive staff and a large but well sectioned dining room that evokes both a steam punk kind of modernity with the tactile elements of a good french bistro. Very continental but modern. The food is excellent from the more traditional items of the french onion soup to more experimental offerings on the mains. Cocktails are playful and tasty, and the wine list, while not extensive, it most certainly accessible.

Great French restaurant, delicious food, excellent service and a charming ambience in the dining room. The desserts are very unique and you shouldn’t leave without trying one. Cluny’s provides one of the best dining experiences in Toronto. Great for locals, a must for visitors!

Food was ok but as a dietetic they wouldn’t let me sub out the fries for veggies with my steak. Not worth the price especially since I can’t eat the fries. They act like an over priced restaurant but they are simply a tourist trap.

Lovely Sunday brunch with family and some friends who have a marriage coming up. The ambience was perfect for the occasion. Food choices were interesting and for the most part very tasty and well presented, perhaps a bit pricey. Service was very good. Overall a very good spot if you don’t mind spending ~$40pp for breakfast without any alcohol considered.

I love this restaurant so much. Feels like going to Paris. Love the atmosphere. Service was great. The French onion soup was amazing. The Marie Antoinette was a cool cocktail. The bread was fantastic. The French fries so yummy. Nice clean washrooms. Romantic date spot in the Distillery.

The Caesar salad wasn’t to my taste though so I recommend skipping it.
