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.

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.

Server was informative, attentive (but not disruptive)band friendly. The restaurant’s decor is suitable for a celebration but casual enough for comfort. Lovely food presentation and tasty. Thank you!

Took a party of 8 for a birthday party, ordered off the menu. Our party arrived in a staggered manner, and this seemed to throw our server off his game. The wine that we ordered for the table and the water was slow in coming. Our server walked away when we asked to order. The shared appetizers and mains were good, though the doneness of the liver and onions was inconsistent to what was ordered. The kitchen sent out a dessert platter that was impressive including flourless items, cotton candy and a birthday greeting which was appreciated.

Was there for Family Day with some family who’d not been to Cluny’s before. They were all very impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant and the beautiful decor. Food was delicious and loved the bread. Overall had a great brunch and bought some additional pastries to take home which were amazing.

The food was bland and unremarkable, the service was just fine, and the ambiance and decor sloppily contrived. Cluny is a disappointment for those seeking a fine French bistro...

We’ve been at Cluny in the past and loved the experience. This time the service was slower (although our server was very nice). The steak was not cooked to order and was not hot when served. However, based on prior great experience I would come back.

Definitely the best onion soup in the city! I would also recommend the coq au vin poutine. Had a wonderful dessert with homemade cotton candy on top. Excellent service.

In general this is amazing French bistro spot with delicious food, yet our great experience was ruined by the poor service and negligence of our waiter!!! Hope the administration will re-consider its employees

Ambiance is lovely but food was not terribly impressive. Very disappointed with the mimosa - served with flat Prosecco. For the prices charged, meals should be outstanding.

Three experiences at Cluny. Food subpar on two of three. Enjoyed the beef dip on second experience and ordered again on Saturday Feb 16 for brunch. Disgusting cut of beef, extremely fatty and sinewy with large pieces of gristle/cartilage. To be fair the rest of the meal was not bad but this was the main feature. When I brought this to the attention of waiter (Armonde, who was excellent), he relayed to the Manager who took no action. Did not come to speak with us, did not offer compensation of any kind. Difficult to write the review as the overall experience was mixed and inconsistent. My main reason for not returning is the lack of assurance that a serious issue involving food quality was appropriately addressed.

It was my boyfriend and I's first time going to this restaurant, and it was for valentine's day. Right when we walked in, we knew it was going to be a great experience. The lights were dim which made it more romantic in my opinion. Our server Mark was amazing and he sure knew everything on the menu.

We got the seared scallops from the special valentine's menu, and when I tell you it was delicious, it was over the top. For the main course though we got steak and it was a little chewy and bit dry for me. But the FRIES were flavourful and what really stood out for me. You can never go wrong with Cluny's fries.

We wanted a very light dessert since the main course was quite heavy so our server recommended "Le coconut" which was visually pleasing because it literally looks like a mini coconut! It was light and creamy and everything on the plate was really good. Cluny is known for their amazing dessert selection so I believe anything on the menu results to satisfaction. Nothing but good words.

We ordered foie gras appetizer, oyster with caviar, seared scallops, and filet steak with seared foie gras.
As a foie gras lover, I am very happy with what I had.
The seared scallops were tasty, but the portion is too small. Steak is just so so.
