Le Cirque is no longer here and looking for a new location. The restaurant that has taken this location, is Hutong (Chinese food) as of 10 weeks Oct. 1st, 2019.

I´ve been to Le Cirque during NY restaurant week to check it out. The food was good but nothing special which you would actually expect from a fancy place like that. They served mac & cheese as a side dish which isn´t french at all...and something I eat at home. You don´t need to go to a restaurant for this type of food. Overall it was okay but from all the choices you have in NYC I wouldn´t recommend this place. Too expensive and they don´t even have a Michelin Star.More

This is the finest of all fine dining restaurants. The food is some of the best you will ever have in your life. All courses are times perfectly. The service is impeccable. You are definitely treated like royalty. Definitely an experience to remember.

Our family dined on Christmas Eve at le Cirque - and were disappointed from the start. The service was neither well paced not attentive. We waited forever for everyone to be served which meant that we didn't eat until everyone had their meal... for each...and every course. The meals? The sole almandine was dry and tasteless. Were it not for the very heavy coating of sliced almonds on it, there would've been no taste at all. The beef? The outside was charred and the inside was virtually raw. The quality was poor, too - sinewy and tough to chew. The best parts? The wine and the crème brûlé. It's too bad that such a lovely restaurant where we have dined several times would end its "career" so poorly. The management will have a LOT of trust to rebuild if they decide to re-open the restaurant elsewhere in the city.More

Not really my scene, but was a NYC bucket list thing to do, or so I thought. Disappointed in the food, nothing spectacular, but really wasn't that good either. A let down overall, over rated, not sure what all the fuss was about. $200+ For...dinner and drinks could have been better spent, and wouldn't have cared about the price had it been good. Will never go back.More

Our part of the big family were delayed due to a traffic accident.. We called the restaurant and the other part of our family arrived (early). The Management took hold of the situation, we eased up on all our cell phones. The tension in our...car dissipated once it was confirmed our family were comfortable and assured we were okay and on our way. We loved the food, the service was excellent and I look forward to coming back when in NY. The atmosphere was sooo fantastic!! Valet prompt and courtesy.More

Probably the best French meal I have had in recent years. Our meal was outstanding and the service was all one could ask for. When one orders the card it is difficult to comment on an individual dish as it was all so good. One...know when the food is good as after 5 courses you were satisfied but did not feel boated. The ambiance was very comfortable.More

I've always wanted to have dinner here and decided on a date night with the hubby. We ordered a 5 course tasting menu and everything was SUPERB! From lobster risotto, fois gras pate, escargot, breaded flounder, lamb, and desserts were served to perfection & delicious....The atmosphere was elegant and welcoming. That staff was friendly and professional. I would HIGHLY recommend a FABULOUS time here!More
