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

We were in town for a music festival, and needed to find a place to eat something lighter by our next show, (at the Imperial). Le Cercle was essentially next door, and we could tell by the cool art and ambiance that we were in for a treat. Sure enough, the "Picnique" appetizer of cured meats, pickled veggies, and cheeses...

This is a very hip place filled with locals and very few tourists. It has great music and cool decor. The drinks/cocktails are pretty good and the place also has some fancy snacks. We tried the salmon tartare and shared between the two of us. It was really good but maybe not worth the price.

The wine was great, and was worth the price but you can get better food for half the price at a pub.

Not sure what to expect even when we stepped into the restaurant. The server is very friendly and even sat down next to us to explain the menu in English. Very pleased and surprised by how the food were put together. Nice atmosphere if you need modern and enjoy electric music. Liked the bar design even we are not serious... More

Cercle got a reputation trought years... unfortunatelly they should try to keep their clients satisfied. The first thing is to be nice with them and I think respect and helpfulnees are not so hard to ask when you do customer service. I do live in Québec, in the quartier Saint-Roch, and I have attempted to eat at the cercle four... More
