The Le Cirque restaurant made its debut on our Holland Cruise for one night only. We had a four course meal that was truly a delectable dinning experience. I started off with a cold Mellon and mango soup and followed up with a spiced infused lamb chops. Every dish from start to finish was excellent. I definitely go to the... More

Last year at this time we had a sublime dining experience at Le Cirque and vowed that if we came close to repeating it, we would make it an annual event. Alas, it was not to be. A shared appetizer of seared scallops and sweetbreads came to the table lukewarm and was cold by the time we finished. The Lobster... More

We hosted a business dinner here recently and they did a fantastic job. Serving levels are very high. Staff is attentive and professional. Food quality was exceptional. And they deal very effectively with issues like celiac. Highly recommended.

I had been visiting this restaurant for years, even before it moved to this new location. I have to say that I preferred the other location and atmosphere, but the food is as good. I like the bar in the evening and the clientele. Exceptional chef and very good service. A great moment when you want to have an exceptional... More

Le Cirque has gained a name for years and one has high expectations when visiting it. Upon arrival you are greeted in a very cold manner by a member of the staff, who, while checking if you have a reservation, gives you the impression of doing you a favour just by looking at you. If you are graced with her... More

I was taken to lunch here with friends, and was unimpressed. The food was average at best, but the service was lacking as well. Once our luncheon plates were cleared, we waited 40 minutes for a dessert menu. Our coffee arrived 30 minutes after dessert. I wouldn't recommend it---overpriced, and resting on its laurels.

Le Cirque is among the restaurant's landmark of NYC. The decor and the ambiance make it very special and cozy. I would recommend to go for a drink around 8pm them have the 5 stars dinner experience. If you go on Friday you will have even Gianni Russo singing. The menu is amazing. Try the white truffle dessert, this is... More
