Service slow. Paper menus which were slightly worn and had obviously seen a few customers. Unhelpful staff when asked about onions on the burger and was told - you don't get onions with yours. Although when paying I was informed they would correct this but too late for our company. For the price, not great value and meal served on a wooden chopping board that looked as though it had seen better days. I did wonder how clean it was but since we had little time left to go anywhere else due to catching trains and planes, we stayed as it took so long to get our food. Given this, I wouldn't go back.

Ahhhhh....finally! A restaurant that isn't afraid to think outside the box, let their hair down and engage their customers with eye candy while they wait for their meal. Thank you Circo! Maybe they should be called Bravo Circo! My food was very tasty. Service was not as fast as Gusto. It wasn't so slow that I wouldn't go back but if you are rushed at all, this is not your scene. Sit back, enjoy your surroundings at Circo and bon apetite!

Although the restaurant is fab in appearance the food is very much lacking, 23 of us went but we pre ordered weeks ahead only to find tiny portions two marble sized potatoes cut in half and a green been hiding under the chicken the cheese board comprised of three crackers and 3 slices of cheese the guests notice vast differences in portion size s and were left feeling disappointed,food was cold too the chicken explanation was it's a salad so it's supposed to be just warm this was also the case with the sea bass and pasta. If this was the case why we're dome hot then further down the table ?????? And the menu didn't refer to any food as salad so this is a mystery so we paid £33.00 £3. Service charge put on regardless

Hi,
Thanks for your review. We at Circo strive to provide the best customer service possible. I actually spoke with yourself on the night in question and explained the dish to you. Which again have listed below.

Main Course
Pan fried chicken with warm tomato, red onion salad and green beans

We apologise that portion sizes didn’t not meet your parties’ expectation but if you can see for other dinner show reviews the size is adequate for most people. If you would like to discuss this further please contact myself on Danny@circoliverpool.com

9:30 dinning is a little late for us but if it's what you have to do for the experience then so be it.
We got the best seats in the house right at the front on a table just the two of us. The rest of the audience were mainly hen do's not a problem quite well behaved.
Acrobats jumping all around the room hanging from the ceilings brilliant.
Drag queen was stunning a great photo opportunity.
Dancing girls.
Burlesque.
Magicians.
Gymnastics in the air unbelievable.
Fire eater/spinner a real hit with the ladies.
Food was very good a real hit for us.
Waiters very attentive.
Drinks a little pricey but it's up to you how far you want to go.
Overall a real special experience and would recommend to anyone!
