We went this year to Le Cirque for New Year's Eve, which ended up lasting until I was ready to fall over at 2:30 in the morning, the latest by far we have stayed on a New Year's Eve dinner, I think ever. Neil Sedaka is a friend of Sirio's and so they all ate together at the table next... More

The restaurant may no longer be the landmark of New York City dining, but it still holds its modern yet grandiose appearance. The food was excellent, some very innovative choices. Still highly recommend for a dinner in style.

The place is modern, design and style is original. Great atmosphere. Food is very good, with an interesting mix of Italian tradition and experimental plates. Wine list is of great quality.

The food was excellent, as well as the service. I have dined in both the main dining room for a friends birthday as well as in the more casual part of the restaurant. Both times were just as lovely. It's a nice formal dining experience as well as a casual dining and cocktails. If you are looking for something outside... More

Sadly, Le Cirque is no longer the New York landmark it used to be, 20-25 years ago, when my parents would take us to NY and we've have a nice family diner before flying home the next day. There are a lot of great French restaurants in the world outside of France and also in NY, unfortunately <<Le Cirque>> is... More

Overall a very fine experience. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was festive. The wine and food service was also mostly up to expectations for a fine dining establishment. The only negative was that some women in black or dark clothing were given black napkins to be lint free, however my wife was not. Since we were well into our... More

When he presided at the front (and the back) first at the old Mayfair Regent (now home to Daniel's) and then in the Versailles Mansion at the Palace everything was 5 Star.

We loved our little banquette table at Le Cirque and were super excited for this first visit on the Saturday night after Christmas. My appetizer of sweetbreads and scallops was a TEN. It really is what good dining was all about. Unfortunately, that was the only dish that we really enjoyed. My husband's agnolotti appetizer was lukewarm and doused in... More

Very nicely done Christmas Eve dinner. Food executed very well. Creative, delicious. Service, on the other hand, was spotty. Had to ask for refills on water and drinks. Only a party of four, and the waiter wrote our orders down, and got my son's order wrong. To his credit, he let us have the mistake entree, but at prices like... More
