Service was amazing

We enjoyed a nice relaxed meal of very good food and wine. At the end of our meal the table next to us was served their suckling pig. As a vegetarian of 27 years I was pretty horrified at the sight.

please...please, don't take the "smoked meat". A very little piece of meat (half fat), with two small crackers, and if you add some french fries, you need to pay extra cash for a little portion. Very disapointing place and no parking around the place (20 min to find one)

My husband and I had a lovely meal here, this is definitely a place the locals frequent and we were recommended by a waitress at another restaurant. We ordered the beet salad, wagu beef Wellington, beef tartare and pistachio chocolate dessert. All were excellent especially the hazelnut chocolate balls with the dessert! Highly recommended.

This is a trendy, neighborhood restaurant with good eats and interesting entertainment (video on the wall). The choices are very different, definitely gourmet French. We enjoyed the fish of the day (halibut) special and medallions of beef entree.

The food was good (try the duck wings) and so were the drinks. Would love to go back and try the full dinner menu and not just the late night eats.

We were a bit nervous about the food we might get at the Jeudis Terribles music evening at Le Cercle, but ended really loving the tapas served there. We picked the house sausages and smoked meat with rye (both so good we had to reorder), the foie gras, the beet salad and the duck wings (very tasty), the grilled cheese... More

A "hip" and vibrant restaurant. Stumbled upon this restaurant on our family vacation in Quebec and what a fortunate stumble it was (again it was my mom's wise choosing)! Very well crafted dishes and everyone was extremely happy with their choices. We were very well attended to and they were most respectful and helpful with recommendations. We had extra room... More

Our family of 4 adults couldn't find availability for the food tour of Quebec so we did a bit of searching and found Le Cercle on the edge of Le Roch district of Quebec City. It was a bit of a trek downhill from our hotel, but we are so glad we made the effort ! It is quite a... More

Order 3 appetizers and 3 mains and everybody loved them all. The butchers cut and the foie Gras were the stand outs. Only negative was it was one of the hottest restaurant I have ever been in (including Egypt). It was August but none of the other 10 places that we ate at came close to being that hot.

Throughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch here. Fun neighborhood and the restaurant has a great modern vibe. The eggs Benedict are highly recommended. A little spendy but you get what you pay for.
