    Expensive if you choose

    I have been reading reviews of how Cercle Rouge is expensive and not worth the visit. Let me tell you i am from the neighbourhood and i have been to Cercle Rouge many times and yes if i wanted the Fois Gras terrine and then the dover sole with a bottle of Margaux then yes of course it expensive, but if i choose to eat chicken wings or Crab cake (superb) then Hanger steak or scallops and 2 glasses of cabernet it comes to under $60. The service is bright and friendly the music catchy, the atmosphere lively. The other day i was offered a Mouton Rosthchild 99 for $260, find me that in New York. Check it out for yourself.

    Not that bad

    Damn you Cerlce Rouge. You are like that beautiful girl you see occassionally on the New York subway : great looking but probably dumb as a sack of bricks....certainly not breeding material....good for a one night stand. But damn you have the right bone structure. Why ....Oh Why,...? Okay. First things first. Cercle Rouge is not Balthazar. It reminds me, in principle, of early McDonalds knockoffs...everyone thought: wow that is so simple..let's make our burgers out of 100% real (not gross) meat (not the bits which McDonalds uses). But even with less guts and more muscle, there was a spark that was missing from those copies (in burger king's case it was the wimpy fries, in white castle it was the stupid "healthy" white "surfer-dude" slant.) In any case, I am not comparing Cercle Rouge to McDonalds, I am just saying that the copying photostat format of Balthazar in Soho copy is blurry at best. Cercle Rouge has huge potential to be THE Tribeca joint. Tribeca is missing a Balthazar-type hub. Nobu/NND (both of which I love by the way - despite the tourists) are not local hip joints - they are full of "celebrities" and others of the fame ilk - all and fine, if you are a gawker and into that stuff....great food, but missing a plebian spark. Bubbys (which I also love) is full of upper west-side folks on weekend business meetings (tip from me: go during the week to sample Bubby's genuine wholesome Tribeca goodness....my parents especially..not from NY... love it...) Here's what you do, Cercle Rouge: 1. Hire new service staff. Less guff (tell them to go back to "acting class") and more caring about the customer. have a look at Balthazar....as arrogant as the door staff seem (likely because they are so busy..don't go that route until you are), when you start ordering food the waiters are attentive and pleasant. Customer, Customer Customer. 2. Realise that as a "Bar Americain" people are going to order wine, the fish-and chips.

    Not recommended

    Food & service were both subpar. Scallops and Cod both came out cold. Portions very small. Steak for $31.50 was not worth it.

    A swing and a miss

    This place could be incredible addition to TriBeCa, but they should have taken some serious pointers from Pastis and Balthazar. They have a great space in a hot neighborhood but they fail to execute with an overpriced, limited, and unappealing menu.

    Great addition to the neighborhood

    We had a very early dinner on a Saturday night--friendly service, albeit a little flaky. They were out of two entrees, and didn't go the extra mile to recommend something else or compensate us for not having the entree we had our heart set on. Fantastic crab cakes, however. Great beef for two, with rather lackluster fries. Nice wine selection and they make a good martini. All things considered, a good meal...better fries would have made the food a 4.

    Overpriced

    When we couldn't get a table at Landmarc, Cercle Rouge was gracious enough to find a place for us without reservations. The service was decent, but the acoustics in the main room were awful--we had to shout to be heard. The quality of the food was excellent, but the portions were very small. So small that we laughed when they set down the plates before us. We spent more than $50 per person and went home hungry. Recommendation: have a drink at the nice outdoor tables, but don't order food.
