A friend and I dined at Le Cirque last week for lunch. The restaurant itself is beautiful - spacious, quiet despite filling up for lunch, and has plenty of waiters ready to refill water as soon as you've taken a sip. Unfortunately, the service was disappointing. I have a pretty serious carrot allergy, and despite asking the waiter whether my... More

I was so disappointed by this restaurant. When my hubby booked it for my birthday dinner, I was so excited and looking forward. However, the food and service sucked terribly. The waiting staff kept rushing us and we didn't enjoy our dinner at all.

I wanted to visit Le Cirque for a long time. I was there during Restaurant Week. I went to various restaurants during that week, and I have to say that Le Cirque was one of the best I tried. However, I still think it lacks something. The food is good but it needs a wow factor. The service is attentive,... More

We had high expectations for this NYC institution and our experience fell short. The dining room is beautiful with high ceilings, soothing lighting, and great accoustics. It was easy to carry on a conversation and not have to yell. We visited during Restaurant Week and ordered 3 course meals for $38 each. I ordered the striped bass, which is a... More

Dined at this classic restaurant for Valentines dinner. For years I've read about the celebrities who have dined at this restaurant and was excited to have the opportunity to enjoy a meal here. It was a beautiful dining room and the menu was a fixed price three course meal. Each course was beautifully plated and while the steak wasn't the... More

Le Cirque has been a New York institution for years. The history is undeniable and some of it is captured in the many pictures that adorn the walls and halls. The current location is smart and modern with lots of glass. This is a rather large restaurant, maybe too large to be intimate. We were seated in the room furthest... More

I've recently been writing a number of reviews of great restaurants I've been to recently and Le Cirque completely slipped my mind. That is telling. I booked this restaurant because I was on a Holland America cruise last January where they transformed the ship's dining room into Le Cirque for one night, and the food was absolutely fantastic. So for... More

I always expected Le Cirque to be a 5-star, top echelon fine dining experience, the cream of the crop, in the same category as Le Bernardin, Daniel, EMP, etc. I thought they would have immaculate service, immaculate dishes and immaculate presentation. And while it was delicious, it certainly was not immaculate nor was it an unforgettable experience. Overall is simply... More

We had a big party but the staff took good care of us. We did the tasting menu and we all enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere is fabulous. I recommend this for any special occasion.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
