We discovered when we sat down that we were there on the penultimate night of service in this restaurant, which has been open for at least 20 years. They lost their lease that very week, and the staff had just been told a few days before. We were very sad, because Circo had been one of our regular venues for pre-theatre dinner, particularly for City Center. I had celebrated several birthdays there as well. Our dinner was delicious but sad. We will miss Circo.
We are so sorry Circo is closing on Sunday. It has been our go to restaurant for over 20years. Good bye to a dear friend
Having had dinner at Circo several times in the past, most recently it was somewhat disappointing, hopefully an off evening and poor selections from the menu. The staff, though friendly, was overworked and harried, but they did get us out on time for the theater, an easy target as we only had main course and dessert. The veal was tough and grissly so that the scallopini dish chosen by three at our table, though flavorful, was a poor choice. A restaurant like Circo should be more careful in purchasing its meat. Hoping to return for a better meal.
How sad, our go to restaurant with great service and food and ambiance is closing on sunday
Would not recommend. Owner only interested in his "friends." No waiter! We ordered thru a busman who told the wine guy what we wanted. Food came on time and was good but wine was actually BAD, so he opened another one that was awful tasting, finally a Shiraz that was drinkable. He was nice. Tried to be helpful. Very disorganized. The people next to us were equally horrified. Beautiful place though.
Loved it. So sad they close send!
Pre-theater from 5:30-6:30 great deal. Choices great and portions a good size. Yummy pumpkin tart. Wine list has changed and we found it difficult to find a moderately priced wine. However maitre d’ was able to find a suitable and fine tasting wine that was not on the list. Enjoyable evening.
We have been to Circo many times over the last few years and it has never been a disappointment. Just days after we were last there, I heard they were about to close. That is a huge disappointment. Bruno and friends, we miss you.
Bruno is the greatest as always he and his Circo Troop are the Best of the Best! AAA+ If you want a great dinning experience and finest quality, this is the place.
Thank you again!!
Restaurant was veeery busy pre theater but quieted down after 7:45pm. Staff didn’t pay attention to Open Table notes about our special anniversary, although Maitre D spoke to us after dinner & decorated dessert plate. Friends called restaurant to send us drinks & they couldn’t find a reservation for us - Hello Open Table!
Large portion of veal parmesan & very delicious creme brûlée!
Everything was way too salty!! I could barely eat my dinner.
I enjoyed their chicken specialty and my wife also enjoyed her salmon. The venue is much better than Aquagrill where we went last week. I’m not sure about comparing the venue with Le Bernardin or Nobu but the staff Bruno, Elmo and Julio made us feel special.
We will come back.
Very bad service, not enough waiters.
Food was very average
Circo is elegant and classy. The pasta is homemade, subtle, tasty, and presented well. I loved the Papardelle with wild mushrooms and duck ragu. I would go back for that.
Have come to this restaurant pre theater for many years. It seems to have lost it's food quality at the same time that it has gotten very pricey. Decor is lovely, but food
Is skimpy and lacking good flavors.
