Memorable Fathers Day Treat

We arrived from LGA after lunch, before dinner, hot, tired and hungry. Cafe Cluny was less than a block from our room, and they were in between lunch and dinner, but offered a variety of choices they claimed were their "limited" menu. Frisee Salad aux Lardons, Big Eye Tuna Tataki, and Macerated Berries with whipped cream pretty much did it... More

Had dinner here on a Monday night. The restaurant is small so had made reservations. The staff were friendly and helpful with the menu. There is a small bar inside to have a drink before dinner if you arrive early. The menu was nice and reasonable in price. Dinner for two with wine and dessert cost around $100. It is... More

Prepare yourself for a delicious meal, excellent service, friendly and helpful staff, and reasonable price. If you need a recommendation from the menu, you're in good hands with the restaurant team. You'll be pleased you made a reservation.

What more could we want than for quaint French cuisine while visiting the city on our wedding anniversary. Would highly recommend!

This was my second time in cafe Cluny's. My first trip here was back in 2011 and it was great. It was buzzing with people and the food was not only reasonably priced but was really nice. The staff were attentive and served you with a smile. This time however, it was a completely different dining experience. The staff were... More

I went there with my boyfriend and family to have a sunday brunch! It was great. In the middle of west village... Great coffee. I had the french toast and the others took the avocado toast! Everything was perfect! The place is very cosy and chic!

We had a very nice cup of coffee and some good cake in a nice setting here. Surrounding is interesting to walk around. While in NY it's often Starbucks or really ugly filter coffee, we were happy here. The cakes were innovative. Coming from the Black Forest, the Black Forest cherry cake variation was interesting (rich warm chocolate cake with... More

Loved it here. Really hip area. Food was absolutely lush (Club sandwiches were the best). Great coffee, great T. Great service. Worth paying that bit extra for.

We ducked into Cafe Cluny for a late lunch and were very happy we did. I had the Ahi Tuna Burger and fries and a delicious, crisp glass of wine and my friend had the burger. They were both very tasty. Since I'm from the beach area and eat a lot of fresh fish, this Ahi burger was up there... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
