    We came on a Tuesday afternoon for lunch. Had a reservation and got seated quickly. The restaurant was filled with people who appeared to be on work/company lunches, groups with laptops etc. the big windows makes the restaurant bright with natural lighting but I could see it being extremely dark after the sun sets. Within two minutes of being seated the waiter came to take our order which we weren't ready and then didn't stop back at our table to take our order for another 25 minutes. There were only what appeared to be two servers, three busboys, a manager, and hostess working. Probably understaffed but there were plenty of times the waiter just overlooked our table. The rest of our meal the waiter only came by once while the rest of the service staff were the ones to deliver our plates. With the starters we got the hummus and escarole. The hummus was delicious but could've used like two extra pieces of pita to finish of the hummus. The escarole overall was pretty bitter and could've used more apples or a stronger citrus to balance the flavor. For the main entree we ordered the lamb sausage bowl and dorade filet. First of all the bowl: who thought plating a brown sausage in a spiral would look appetizing?? But flavor wise it had a lot of good flavors but could've used some more rice to balance out the saltiness in literally everything on the plate. The sausage was seasoned well and there were also pickled veggies. Those mixed with the curry on the plate, definitely needed more rice to balance the salt. The fish was really fresh and light tasting and had good flavors but the dish overall was just fish. Feel like it could've used a carb or even a bit of side veggies, cause literally all you were eating was fish. Got a side of fries and can't really go wrong there. Tried both desserts in the restaurant week menu and they were both good. No complaints. Overall the restaurant wasn't bad but nothing that draws me to return.

    Food and service were terrific! Wine choices were plentiful and good. Music level very high so it was hard to have conversations.. Great place for drinks. Food was served quickly and hot right from the kitchen. Fish was crispy and fresh.

    Great service and the appetizers and desert were excellent but some of the main plates fell short. Uneven cooking in the burnt ends and the kofta meatballs were dry. Overall it was a decent value for $60

    We joined for restaurant week and we’re very much underwhelmed. The portion sizes for a $60 meal were sad. The food had good flavor but was poorly executed, especially the burnt ends, they were very dry and the rice was crispy? Dessert was too sweet for either of us to finish and cocktails were $17 a piece. I love a nice night out at an upper scale restaurant but we were not satisfied at all for what we paid. Ambiance was great though.

    Definitely not the ideal place for a date, unless you don’t mind half yelling. Decided to try this place out for restaurant week. Falafel and the fish were good, but the rest of the dishes we tried were mediocre, not worth coming back for. Wanted to order the muhammara off the regular menu but was told it not available.

    Tried Cira for the first time during Restaurant Week so did not get to see their entire menu, but was happy with the many options they offered to choose from on the Restaurant Week menu. My friend and I both really enjoyed all four courses and we both ordered something different for each of the 3 courses (the first course was just a little appetizer date stuffed with goat cheese that we each were automatically given and those were delicious too). I would definitely come back here again.

    My friends and I had such a fun night at Cira’s restaurant week. The food and drinks were beautiful and delicious. We weren’t aware that we could only order off the restaurant week menu, but still loved the food. Portions weren’t crazy sized like many restaurant week plates, leaving us perfectly full and ready for a night out. The service was a little slow, but the time allowed us to fully embrace the experience. 9/10!

    We went during restaurant week which is, understandably, more chaotic than usual. However, even for restaurant week, our party left disappointed. The good: The atmosphere is incredible. It's a gorgeous restaurant. Food came out very quickly! The bad: We had a reservation and still needed to wait 30 minutes to get a table. After I followed up with the hostess, they told me they don't have any seats open despite the reservation and put my party at a small cocktail table clearly meant for just drinks. From there, it took 30 minutes for a server to come and ask us for our order. We actually asked a different waiter to take our order at that point - since we were placed in the cocktail area instead, we believe our waiter forgot about us. We got the food incredibly quickly, however for a $55 course we felt pretty ripped off. The food was ok but it wasn't anything worth that price. Unfortunately, I will not be returning.

    Cira has delicious food & great ambiance, and normally I would recommend it to anyone. However, we visited during Restaurant Week and the service from the staff unfortunately really soured the evening. It seemed like they had severely overbooked for Restaurant Week, and it ended up just being a madhouse. The host was really agitated, we waited 30+ minutes for our table (even though we had a later reservation at 7:45PM), our server was MIA for our entire meal, we had to repeatedly ask for silverware and plates when our food was delivered to us, etc.

    We dined at Cira during restaurant week, and had a less than fantastic experience. The food, which will always be the most important factor, was delicious. So that was great. However, we waited 30 minutes past our reservation for our table. We were told it was because they were busy for restaurant week…well so is every other participating restaurant, and those all managed to seat me on time. The service during our meal was rushed. Our waiter seemed extremely distracted and only visited our table twice. Every other visit was from someone else, so it felt like we were being waited on by tons of people. Just very off putting. The actual restaurant is beautiful, there’s tons of space and lots of places to cozy up with a drink. I would definitely come here again just for the bar, as the bar tenders were attentive and made a great cocktail. But for dinner, I would skip.

    We did the brunch restaurant week menu - a few items were sold out by the time our reservation was. The server was very open about it and willing to make accommodations to ensure I was happy. Safe to say I was! Food was awesome, the coffee was great. Will definitely be back! The ambiance was fun - there was a DJ that afternoon and it was awesome.

    our server Larry was awesome!! He came at all the right times and even provided me with a little sample of two wine choices I was between! The only portion of our experience we were a little weary about was the Kafta Meatball dish was a bit burnt - we didn't have the guts to say anything on a busy Saturday night but aside from the dish our experience was great! Would definitely come back :)

    From the time you walk in the door until the time you leave, the energy hits you. It’s loud, boisterous, and a great vibe. Our service was phenomenal that is to Larry. He was positive and upbeat and made our time there perfect. The food was amazing with no skimping just because it was restaurant week. The team was on their game. And with so many places to choose in Fulton Market, I feel like we made the right choice.

    Terrific food and great service, in a very hip and chic atmosphere. Dined here during restaurant week so the menu was limited, but everything we had was delicious. We had an earlier seating at 6pm and they were clearly busy, but we never felt rushed and they let us stay as long as we wanted. Will definitely go back.
