Service was fantastic ! However when you have to prices on your menu people expects more than just amazing service. The food was ok, a little plane, I ordered a medium rate steak and it was well done, the wines were $17 the cheapest. The Cyrene brûlée was only ok. We also ordered the chicken with arugula, it was fine... More

Le Cirque is by far one of our favorite restaurants in NYC! My husband and I have dined here multiple times and we intend on coming back again and again.

I was very happy with the service, the drinks, the food, and the ambiance at Le Cirque. I know that there had been some complaints about the restaurant not be as up to par as it had once been in the past but i think the acquisition of Raphael Francois from the Connaught has helped change things. We skipped the... More

This restaurant was as expected, great food. It didn't give me that wow factor on the service, but it wasn't bad. The food had a wow factor. I ordered the Prix Fix menu for restaurant week for dinner. It was great. My one favorite is a side dish called Pomme Puree. It's the most creamy and delicious mashed potato ever!... More

HAL has arranged with the chef of Le Cirque to offer guests on board it's ships a'la Cirque' dining experience. This is at a hefty supplement but well worth it. The food was divine!

This restaurant is regularly above our price range, but given the restaurant week offers, we decided to give it a try. It was, in a nutshell, magic. As part of the restaurant week menu you get a choice of an appetizer, entree and dessert. I chose the salmon appetizer, the merlu main course and the panna cotta dessert. My partner... More
