Great food, exceptional service but very pricey.

The nerve of this restaurant to serve Minuscule portions with large prices.

My calamari were light as a feather and I ordered marinara instead of nouvelle soy sauce. The lobster risotto was one of top five lobster dishes I've ever had.

Went here for the first time and was pretty excited to see what Le Cirque was about. We tried the restaurant week menu, which was perhaps our first mistake. Our warm appetizers came out only slightly warm and were extremely salty; the cold appetizer was repulsive. Our main courses were good but again very salty. Dessert was marginally better but should have been heated up more. Seriously, it seems like they microwaved the creme brûlée and tossed it out. The crowning touch was the latte, which was cold and looked like it had sloshed everywhere before making it to our table. The waiter was very surprised that we had not enjoyed our meal, but given that he only checked on us once, at the end of the meal, I'm not surprised that he was only finding out then. Been to Le Cirque now and have checked that box. Will not be going back there again.

So I went to Le Cirque last night for mostly the experience and to tell people yes I have been! Started off with a Salmon Tartar which I have to say was very good. I ordered the Durade and my friend ordered the Short Ribs. Both very Sub Par. I know they say the French prepare the best Fish but there are so many better place for FISH (Lure, Red Cat, Aqua Grill)

I went to Le Cirque for my first and only time to celebrate my anniversary with my husband. As a note, we did not go during Restaurant Week. The service was AMAZING! (You get what you pay for!) What impressed me is that in spite of the attentiveness, it never felt intrusive. My only complaint was that the heat was a bit overbearing. I am not a wine connisseur, so I cannot say if the $150 wine that the sommelier picked for us was really worth the price or not. (My husband loved it for the record- I liked it but for the price could have lived without it). I asked for less butter for the meal preparation and they had absolutely no problem doing this. My favorite course was a piece of white fish- crispy and moist at the same time, surrounded by homemade almond milk. The venison was infused with coffee and delicious. The prawns in foamy coconut milk were almost too pretty to eat. (Though I do wonder why they had foam in at least 3 courses- not a complaint as it was delicious). The only course I wasn't crazy about was the chocolate souffle but that's a personal prefernce; it was a tad too bitter for me, but it was perfectly executed. At the next table, they were served salt baked fish. The table side serving of the fish (breaking the crust and filleting it) was wonderful to watch because you don't see such excellent service anymore. Overall, I believe my experience was worth the price. For 2 with a bottle of wine, tax & tip was around $600. I would only do this once a year though!

The food was a mixed of tasty and bland food, or well executed and badly executed. I wish that they have QUALITY CONTROL before serving the food because it is very disappointing to eat a bland and boring food. And at the same time, I can get a good Chinese food with great taste and flavor for less money. If you love wine and some high ambience and pampered with excellent service, maybe this is your place, but not for the food that you expect for that high price.
