    We have a crazy-amazing 10-course Chef's Menu w/ wine pairing at the Chef's Table (IN the Le Cirque kitchen) ... pretty amazing opportunity considering it's one of the top 40 restaurants in the WORLD. Read more

    Had my 21st birthday celebration here!!! Loved it so much! I go often for drinks- I recommend the Pinot or the Bellini-Tini :-) simply stunning place and the owner Sirio is a pleasure :-)

    The spectacular service at Sirio Macioni's classic can't be beat with offerings that range from confit foie gras and red snapper crudo to prawns cassolette and its famed crème brûlée. Zagat

    Went here for my 21st birthday dinner - unparalleled atmosphere, top-notch dining, and home to an amazing wine tower. A true classic and must-see masterpiece in the culinary industry!

    Everything is good at Le Cirque. Sirio and his sons have a very high standard. We have enjoyed their hospitality for so many years.

    Excellent Lobster Rissoto, Lamb and kitchen efficiency. Same cant be said for hectic service and the pretentious snob of a hostess who crudely shoves you aside and lacks the manners to say goodnight.

    Get the "Australian King Prawns" with spaghetti squash, curry, lemon grass & ginger. Best dish out of the whole Tasting Menu! Was pleasantly surprised because I don't normally like squash & ginger.

    Sirio Maccioni claims to be the one to baptize pasta with spring vegetables as "primavera" in 1974. Sirio was at the lead in bringing the fine Italian dining experience to New York.

    The Chef's Tasting Menu always perfection! However, you can't go wrong with the Seasonal Selection. For dessert you must try the Grand Marnier Souffle!

    It's not a real warm sort of place but the stand-alone tables at least offer privacy. Cranberry rolls were delicious. Salmon was a little over cooked; the sauce was good; no veggies

    One of the best fish dishes I've ever had. Chef Raphael Francois' #Turbot with bourbon vanilla sauce is ethereal!

    Could flower soup very delicious, the creme Brule is a must. Do not leave this place without trying it.

    Really great meal tonight with my friend Atul. A tip - the focaccia is perfect, but ration yourself!

    Can't believe the orange pannacotta is gone, but the other desserts are (almost) as good. Try the regular pannacotta or the floating islands.

    The Lamb was amazing. Obviously a pricey restaurant but worth every penny. Unforgettable experience.

    At Sirio Maccioni’s iconic French outpost, meals are prepared with style and panache. Just think: seared diver scallops atop shiitake foie gras

    Had my first dinner here this week and the experience was a let down. Front of the house people needed a better training. Our dishes were mixed up why bother asking who's eating what!

    Oh, and they have a 24$ lunch special as well. As long as you're not in a rush as the service is a bit slow.

    Service intense & hawkish, a real problem when staff keep interjecting into conversations to serve their own efficiencies. Ask for 'plain' water (free) or pay $10 per bottle. Food overpriced. Avoid.
