Been here on my own looking for a not burger place and found the right thing: Cluny is a great place to eat fish dishes - great wine list also! Great place if you dont want burgers

There is new management at Cluny in the last year. I gave this place a bad review after a few visits of botched orders and a wine free dinner because the (then) manager lost the key to the cellar. This was hard as I have...More

We had very good impression last year, but this time had more modest experience Look like become more expensive, and size of dishes smaller, due to popular location and attendance.

It's a real gem in the otherwise touristy Distillery District. Perfect for pre-theatre dinner, but any excuse will do...An interesting menu, excellent wines, attentive service. Even better if the weather is good and you can eat outside.

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
