Amazing dinner!

We will never have another pork chop to match this one! We started with six beausoleil oysters which were so good we ordered six more. We also ordered the olives which were great, but minor compared to everything else. We chose the pork chop with crispy pork belly for two as our main and the... read more

Really liked our server and the food was decent but not that memorable. I can't really remember it that well. I recall at the time thinking it was decent but a bit bland and that the proportions were a little on the small side. Our server was good. The restaurant was loud, dark, and there was a wall with a... More

Visited for a Dance Laury Dance concert last February and the doorman ID'd everyone and even if somebody was clearly in his 40's or even 50-60's, if he didn't have his ID he got refused access to the bar and they refused to refund their concert tickets. No matter how cheap and good the beer and concert tickets were and... More

One of the best meals of my life. Food was cooked perfectly and showcased creative compositions that weren't afraid to take risks. Go here if you want affordable high end food that will show you something you've never seen before.

I went to Le Cercle for dinner because we were going to a free show after at their venue. The food at the restaurant was delicious. I had a "Bloody Farmer" cocktail (gin bloody mary) and a beet salad that was tasty. After dinner, we went to see "Hotel Morphee" at Cercle's venue next store. The venue was small with... More

TIP: if you have kids, keep looking, not the place for you. The drinks are very good and so are their prices, its a good place to go before or after dinner and have a drink and a small snack. If you like a "White Russian" I had the best one ever!!

Found this place close to our hotel. The food was great, and it had a very New York lounge feel. A bit too loud and club like for us, but if you go earlier, it's worth trying the food.

Unique selection of menu items--little larger than tapas portions so you can order 3 dishes to share for a couple. We ordered 4 to share, and was a little more than we could handle. Would definitely return.

I came here with a group I was traveling with and we had a delightful dinner in a side room where we received excellent attention. Two of us shared a duck special with pate that was very nicely done. Others had the scampi and loved it. Overall great place.

I was very hesitant to get a nice meal at a place which is a restaurant and a live band venue. What a mistake that would have been! The food and service were outstanding and unique. We had sweetbreads with a vegetable purée and beef with a foigras purée. Both were well balance flavors, flavorful and heavenly. For dessert we... More
