A delicious Italian restaurant in a swanky restaurant vibe in Uptown. Definitely will be back!
It was our 36th wedding anniversary, and our friends 33rd to be in a couple of days.
I was in the service industry (high end) or (fine dining) for 32 years, we eat out almost every night and had dined at almost every top restaurant in the city, honestly this was great but not the greatest, thanks to your executive chef for coming out and congratulate us in the beginning that was the top thing it happened all night long, the service was great too even though our server said in the beginning that he had a bottle of wine for us compliments of the House but it never arrived, but is ok we don’t drink much and we had ordered a bottle of wine anyways.
Overall the night was very very good we will definitely give it another try on a weekend when you’re busy...
Congratulations chefs you’re doing a very good job I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family, my whole family worked in restaurants for many many years all fine dining.
Ma promettiamo di vederti presto
Awesome at all levels. Great time with friends
Robust flavors and artful plate presentations made for a wonderful friends get together brunch! Classy, chic atmosphere with superior customer service in the heart of Uptown... a must try for all brunch, dinner or the pool club. Have been to all 3 and HIGHLY recommend!!
The wait staff was very attentive and very nice. However, apparently a new drink menu had just been rolled out and the two drinks that we ordered you all did not have the correct supplies to make that drink. One of the drinks required dry ice which you did not have and the other drink required an edible flower which you also did not have. If you are going to roll out a new menu, you should have the items required to make than. We ordered calamari which was marginal at best and took a long time to get delivered along with our drinks which also took a long time to get delivered. We ordered a main course to split and a plan ordering at our waiter came back and told us that that dish was no longer available and that the new chef wasn’t making that dish any longer despite the fact that it was listed on the menu. Had to settle for another dish which was the risotto and it was bland and sub par to anything that I can make myself at home. Grilled chicken and sausage were good but they were not a good mix with the risotto. That being said, I'm glad we ordered them because they were far superior than just having the risotto by itself without one of those things. The complementary birthday sorbet was OK but we could have done without it. Loved our waiter and him singing to us!!
Thank you for taking the time to give us your personal feedback. We are sorry to hear your visit was not as expected. We assure you that we are working hard to provide the best possible experience each & every time a guest walks through our doors. Thank you again & we look forward to the opportunity to serve you again soon.
For the price and hype, I was not impressed.
Restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious! Pool lounge on top is cool!! Service was great!
Thank you Shannon for an excellent 5 star review! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. We hope to serve you again soon.
Ambiance was impressive, food spectacular and service was amazing!!! Shannon was awesome!
Thank you for an excellent 5 star review! We will be sure to pass on your kudos to Shannon! See you again soon.
Upscale environment with live violin added to the ambiance. Pasta Dishes were terrific. Jordan (waiter) sung an opera style happy birthday song to the table next to us. Enjoyed a personal tour by "Pops" as he shared the vision for creating a destination for the in-crowd to join in fun, dance and music after 9pm under the stars.
Thank you George for the wonderful 5 star review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit and happy that you were able to make personal connections with our staff. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We look forward to serving you again soon!
We had a wonderful dining experience at Circo. We received a tour of the restaurant and pool area on the second level. Courtesy coat check is always a plus. Our out of town guests had a great time. The food was excellent.
Awesome! Thank you Kristin for an excellent 5 star review! We are happy to hear that you and your guests enjoyed your experience at Circo. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Great find and was perfect for bday dinner with friends. Beautiful ambiance and staff was Great. Second floor glass bottom pool was a nice surprise. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Thank you for an excellent 5 star review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your dining experience. We must agree that our Circo Beach area is a "wow spot"-remember our pool officially opens April 1. We hope to see you again soon!
We visited Circo for my wife’s birthday. It was our first visit. We were promptly greeted and seated, and the server quickly introduced himself and acquainted us with the menu. We informed him that we were going to a show at Fair Park afterwards and needed to leave at 6:30. We arrived at 5pm and were not in a rush. The meal began with house-made focaccia bread followed closely by calamari, which was cooked perfectly, with a little crunch on the outside and tender inside, it paired well with the accompanying sauce.
She ordered the ravioli which was based on a family recipe. I had the pork stuffed tortellini. Both were marvelous. We had a late lunch so we were not very hungry, which made the smaller serving sizes perfect for our evening. Had we more of an appetite, we could have added another course to the meal (I was tempted by the lamb chops, so maybe next time). When the house-made dessert arrived one of the servers sang to her and it was worthy of posting on Facebook. We thoroughly enjoyed the olive oil cake, as it was light and delicate, paired with a sorbet. In honor of her birthday, they also brought out some house-made chocolate truffles, which were super-rich and hinted with flavor of raspberries. We topped it off with illy coffee.
At exactly 6:30, we received our check and thus made the show with time to spare. The kitchen coordinated everything so we would not feel rushed, and allowed time for us to enjoy each course.
The server was knowledgeable, made excellent recommendations, and engaged in the perfect amount of side-talk so as not to be too talkative, nor perfectly austere. Not once were our glasses empty, and not one time did we have to worry about the time.
Thank you Circo, for making my wife’s birthday even more special.
FIVE BRIGHT SHINING STARS ALL THE WAY AROUND.
Wow! Thank you so much for an awesome 5 star review and taking the time to detail out your experience. We are so happy to hear that your dining experience made your wife's birthday that much more special. We love being apart of our customer's special occasions. Thank you again! We hope to serve you again soon!
The food at Circo is good, not memorable, but good. Service was a little awkward at times but they tried, just somewhat inexperienced.
Thank you for your review! We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback and will continue to alert our staff with any training opportunities. Thank you again-we hope to serve you again soon!
Two gentlemen opened the doors for us as we approached the entrance, and we were greeted wonderfully by them and the hostesses. We were seated, in what I believe, was the beat seats in the house next to the window overlooking the intersection of the streets. Just something about it that made it special for us. Jordon, our waiter, was phenomenal. He knew the menu and recommendations were on point. He was a bit hesitant to be a bit outfoing, but I think it is because it’s a very elegant type of restaurant. But once I opened up to him a bit, his fun side same out. We ordered the foie gras and the lamb osso bucco. Loved the foie gras, lamb was a bit bland. As an appetizer, we had the cheese and meat platter which was great. Wife enjoyed her red, and I enjoyed my cocktail. Overall experience was wonderful. Price for the food is understandable, but the lamb was bland like I said. And the foie gras was delish, except for the portion size; definitely not a dish for yourself. Would recommend it to friends and family who want to experience fine dining.
Thank you for an outstanding 5 star review! Thank you for your detailed experience. We will be sure to share your comments with our staff. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to serving you again soon!
Wonderful evening at Circo! The restaurant provided a great setting for a lovely evening. We celebrated a special birthday and the staff accommodated us in every way. Great food, attentive service, and our waiter, D'Wayne sang the one of the best renditions of Happy Birthday ever! Also, Jonathan, the manager was most gracious to visit with us. Many thanks to Circo for creating a very memorable celebration.
Thank you Susan for an excellent 5 star review! We are so happy that your experience at Circo was memorable. We are honored that you choose to celebrate with us! Thank you again & we hope to serve you again soon.
10’s 10’s 10’s across the board everyone!
Thank you for an awesome 5 star review! We hope to serve you again soon!
Upscale Circo with its cool Las Vegas & Italian vibe has arrived. Excellent calamari and all pastas are homemade. Large list of cocktail and wine selections are available. Service is attentive. Prices are on the higher side and portions are smaller than most restaurants. Ambiance is great. Dinner is served downstairs in the Las Vegas Italian style restaurant. Upstairs is a very large dance bar area with stunning DJ booth. The rooftop pool is classy with cool vibe and looks great for the warmer nights.
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback as well as compliments to our staff. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again soon!
Cool environment, but overall this place falls short of other options in Dallas. The prices are largely to high for the quality you get. As a person who consistently does new restaurants every weekend, I was disappointed in the quality of food. If you’re looking for good Italian, then sprezza or sassetta put this place to shame. Don’t waste you’re time here, go to sprezza or sassetta and you’ll thank me later.
After visiting Le Cirque in Vegas, this Dallas concept is a cheap and poor experience.
The server was nice and attentive, but way too messy for a restaurant like this. She cannot even describe de Chef’s Selection soup because she didn’t remember.
We asked for a side dish of Brussels sprouts and specifically asked to serve it with our entrees, well they brought them 10 to 15 minutes before, when we didn’t even have silverware to try them out. When our entrees arrived the Brussel sprouts were cold.
My wife’s entree was cold for your expectation of a good pasta and my Osso Bucco was terrible! There was not a single grain of salt in it or the risotto. Really bad.
The only good thing were the meatballs but nothing special for a restaurant like this representing Le Cirque family.
I was expecting this dinner for a while since I heard you were coming to town. Completely disappointed, will never go back.
The food was absolutely terrible. Very blan, I could of done the cooking at my house and seasoned it 10x better than what they put out. Service was okay as well. The place is pretty but doesn’t make up for the terrible food.
Valentine’s Day review. The food was absolutely delicious and our sever was amazing. Very very small portions for the pasta though. Had a good time with my date.
Thank you DanielV for your good review! We are thrilled that you had a good time with your Valentines date. Thank you for your feed back- we will make sure to mention your thoughts to our Chef. We hope to serve you again soon!
The ambiance and location are truly top notch however the main course will need a dramatic refresh to compete here in Dallas, where flavor and taste met! I had the 100.00 32oz steak and needless to say it did not compare with an average steak here in Dallas. Great cut but essentially it was just a large portion of beef.
Thank you Diggy for your review! We greatly appreciate you taking your time to give us constructive feedback to share with our staff. We hope to serve you again soon!
My wife and I visited for Valentine's day and are looking forward to going back. Good food and enthusiastic service.
Thank you for your good review! We are so thrilled that you & your wife enjoyed your Valentine's dinner with us! We too look forward to seeing you again soon!
Dwayne our server was awesome. Pops showed us around the upstairs bar/lounge, outdoor pool and cabanas for rent, along with the locker rooms. He was a great host!
Thank you Michael for your awesome 5 star review! We greatly appreciate you taking time to give us your feedback. We will definitely give Dwayne and Pops your kudos. Hope to serve you again soon!
Valentines Day - happy hour advertised M-F 5p-7p, but we were informed at the restaurant that it was not offered that specific day. Server for dinner was very friendly but appeared to be very green, and new to the restaurant business. Her description of items on the menu did not at all reflect the portion sizes or details of the items themselves. Entree was ordered with a side and the side was never entered. We received it after our entree was already long finished. Decided to go upstairs for a drink after dinner and a manager was showing another couple around their patio but there was no bartender. Once the bartender finally appeared, and we had a chance to order one round of drinks, he didn’t even have the bar set up to prepare our drinks. We were the only ones up there and they took forever to make (1 glass of wine, and 1 negroni). On top of all of this, they auto-grat EVERYTHING 22%. All food, all drinks. We were a party of 2 for dinner, and drinks after. We were one of a handful of tables for dinner, and THE ONLY people upstairs for drinks after dinner. Auto-gratuity of 22% applied to both tabs. Service for both not even close to satisfying a 22% tip, let-alone applying it automatically. I wanted so bad to like this place but it was a huge let-down.
First time at Circo was great, good food and atmosphere.
Thank you Ashley for a great 5 star review! We greatly appreciate you taking the time to review us & look forward to serving you again soon.
Sirio Maccioni must be in tears.
First thought- Great entrance with red carpet. Vallet did not open door for my guest
Second: hostess stumbled around with our reservation. All fairness, we were late, but we did notify them and they accommodated. The restaurant was 3/4 full
Third: I am all about fun and a circus like atmosphere. But it is important to get the mix correct. The play list was full of familiar music, but the were radio edits. Chill the music and Feel the vibe. Make me want to never leave.
Fourth: The wine list was good. It was filled with very good options between $40-$150.
Fifth: the food was very good. The Caesar salad was a defining moment, as were the sausage and sage & meatball appetizers- perfect. My Burrata and spinach Ravioli was delicate and filling.
So here is the opportunity- get the Mix corrected so everyone can have fun and enjoy this restaurant full of potential.
There are a few items that could be reworked or retrained. We had 8 dishes off the menu. 5 dishes were A- which is very good for Dallas. 2 dishes were uneventful ( both deserts). But there was 1 entree that wasn’t presented as the item was listed. I’m trying to wrap my head around this. How did it make it out of the kitchen? How did it pass by the expediter? I’m withholding the item, because I need to see if it can be corrected. I believe in this place, if they can correct such a standard Italian dish.
This Issa simple fix- retrain or replace that dish, Lower the vibe and lower the lights, and DO NOT remove items from a purchase and move it to a statistical one off for mgt.
I listen, not everyone wants a free desert. Feed back is a vital roll in success. People say to me “don’t tell a Waiter Waitress? They can’t do anything”. I say NO!
Speak truth so that you empower the staff to speak truth to power. If power chooses not to listen, then that is a choice. Food is complicated and it requires integrity and a repeatable process.
I have faith that my message was received, So give them a try!!!
Thank you for a great review! Wow, we certainly appreciate the time you took to list out your experience and will definitely take your feedback and share with our staff. Thank you again & we look forward to serving you at Circo soon.
Fantastic date night: the place is absolutely stunning inside, we tried the Carpaccio, as an appetizer, a couple cocktails and our main course were the lamb and the cod. The former was super tender with a risotto cooked as “rice cake” with excellent flavor plus the portion was fairly generous. The cod is one of my personal favorites, and in my humble opinion the best fish dish they have, it is something ideal for dinner, full of flavor, very delicate and with a bit of caviar on top. For desert we shared the tiramisu and I recommend everyone to try it as it is not the typical “boring” one but it is a tiramisu cake inside a ball of thin dark chocolate, looks amazing and taste even better. Our waitress Brooklyn was an absolute dear as well.
Thank you Javier for a fantastic 5 star review! We greatly appreciate you positive feedback as well as for your personal suggestions for future diners. Thank you again & we look forward to serving you again soon!
Service was very good. Food was incredible and the ambience was incredible, the place is beautiful
Thank you for an excellent 5 star review! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to serving you again soon.
Food still as good as it was the first time I ate here, but service left something to be desired. Waiter was not terribly attentive to our table (despite the fact that the restaurant was nowhere near full), and when clearing soup bowls splashed leftover soup on the table which he never cleaned up. Pretty unprofessional if you ask me.
Service was great. Everyone was so friendly & helpful. We even got a tour of the awesome space on the second level.
We initially came for HH but stayed for dinner as well. Had the Ricotta fries, Lasagna & tiramisu. It was all delicious.
Thank you for an awesome 5 star review! We love to hear feedback from our guests especially one highlighting so many great aspects of Circo. We look forward to serving you again soon.
We weren't sure what to expect but going out on a Friday night to a place that's in the clubbing area, with a club upstairs, thought we'd see some people. There were none. Place was like a tomb. Service was so-so at best and the food barely a tad better. Value? None. The food's not cheap. With all of the really great places to dine in Dallas, there's not a reason I can think of for going here.
Beautiful place. The bar and service was excellent. The cocktail choices for Happy “Monkey” Hour were very interesting. The Kong was my favorite. The only thing is they won’t serve Shrimp Cocktail after Happy Hour. We wanted it for dinner but were told it is only available during Happy Hour. The Italian Meatballs are great!
I've been twice in the last week. Once to the bar for HH and once in the dining area. Both trips were memorable. The service is spot on without being overbearing or rushing to turn the table. Our server was Sean. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and did a great job. The oysters are the best in the city. They also make a phenomenal bolognese. I met the assistant manager, Joel, who was very informative about the restaurant's background and goals. We'll definitely be back.
Thank you Jack for your outstanding 5 star review! We are so grateful that you shared your detailed feedback with us and will make sure to give your kudos to our staff. We look forward to serving you again soon!
I planned this evening for my sister and her boyfriend for his 34th birthday! I'm kinda the "party/special events planner" for my family and friends!
Needless to say, they were beyond pleased with their evening!
My husband and I can not wait to try Circo Dallas ourselves sometime!
Thank you Circo staff & Management!

I celebrated my birthday at Circo Tx. Highly recommended. Food and place were fantastic! Our server , his name is Jordan were phenomenal! Overall it was an outstanding experience!
This is an awesome new restaurant. The food is great and the service is excellent. This was my second visit in 7 days. Love this place.
It was birthday and it was the best ever. We started at Happy Hour downstairs and they created a special table for my group of 7 on the 2nd level near the pool and it was wonderful. The manager provided excellent service and ensured several waiters brought our food together so we didn’t have to wait in anyone. Our waitress (Eileen or Maureen) was also excellent. Thank you Circo staff. This is my new favorite place. I only wish they had some kind of live singing on the 2nd level. The background music was good too. I will recommend this place to everyone and my friends vow to come back as well!
You will not be disappointed with Ciro's food. Most Italian restaurants in Dallas offer a heavy version of Italian, while Ciro's captures the authentically light and tasty best of dining in Italy. Our group started with the veal/pork meat balls for the table. They were incredible and the sauce had us using our bread to wipe up the last reminisce. My Burrata cheese salad consisted of fresh Burrata and olive oil garnished with greens. Again, not heavy, just delicious. Our friends ordered the Cesar salad and while they mentioned the heavy dressing, they literately ate their entire salads. For our entrees, two had pasta dishes with one opting for grilled pork, the other Salmon. We all raved about about our food and this is coming from people who dine (not fast food) out at least three times a week. Again, if you expect to be served hefty portions of food go elsewhere.
I must mention our server, Dwayne from Whitcha. He was delightful and kept a watchful eye on us without hovering.
My last comment must address the recent D Magazine restaurant articles. We almost didn't book at Ciro's because of this critical/uncalled for article, but I'm glad that we did. I don't understand why people these days feel they must criticize in order to keep their job. I would think it would be just the opposite.
Dallasite, Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful review! We have posted this in the kitchen to share with all of our staff and shared it with our other locations across the World. It was such a pleasure to meet you and the Carters. We are so happy you enjoyed Circo, you keep the magic alive behind our Industry. Dwayne smiled from ear to ear when he read this - thank you! We truly can not wait to see you all again :)
