The service was horrible!! We had to wait more then an hour between each course, and not because the kitchen couldn't keep up with orders, but because they had no waiters available!! Hence, when food finally arrived to the table, it was barely warm!! Nobody would refill our water. We had to wait 45min for dessert menu! Finally, I had complained to the hostess, and they had offered us free wine with dessert for the inconvenience. Apparently they had a large private party and all waiters were occupied there. Still, it's no excuse since our reservation was made several days in advance and accepted.

My friend and I bought a deal from Living Social for dinner for two with a bottle of wine. The menu offered to us was a limited one, however, the choices offered to us were very good, as was the quality of the food. We shared a tuna tartar and a calamari for appetizers. For the main course, we each ordered branzino. We ordered a chocolate mousse for desert and were also given a complimentary creme brule. The choice between wines was red or white. We ordered the white and it was very good.

I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant, after which I read some reviews about the service which werte not flattering. However, my experience was excellent service. The food was good, but I've had better. I had a delicious appettizer, but the spaghetti with seafood entree was a little disappointing, as the seafood was overcooked. Dessert, crepes, were right on point.

Had a Travelzoo voucher which we presented to the waiter as soon as seated; were treated as 3rd class citizens; we were the only ones who did not received amuse bouche (two rounds were offered to all the other tables); the tuna tartare was not accompanied by toast; the bottle of wine (included in the voucher) was brought to the table with arrogance and contempt; the savings do not justify the humiliation.

I went to Sirio when it was located at The Pierre and it was magical. We went to the new location and I can just say it not only was not the same but it was a real disappointment from the moment we entered to the end. The food was average. The service was ok or rather pedestrian

First of all the reservation was for Sirio restaurant and it turns out Sirio was closed so we were shunted to Le Cirque. They couldn't seem to find the reservation inspire of our getting notified of it several times by email, and my personally confirming it. The food was drab, tasteless, under seasoned. The worse dinner in a restaurant that I have eaten in quite awhile. Had a carrot, ginger soup totally non-descript, followed by supposed eggplant parmesan. Just plain unseasoned, tasteless tomato sauce over some tasteless eggplant. I tasted my husbands salmon which had a thick skin on it, and also totally lacking in taste. The only redeeming item out of the three courses was the desert creme Brule. We were rushed through the meal, a Saturday night arriving at 7:15pm and finished by 8:00pm, as the the adjacent table. We were not offered bread and butter, and the still left hungry after the meal. Totally unsatisfactory, I have had better dinners at a local diner. We will not be back

Waiter was rude and inattentive. Food ranged from average to good. Management made no attempt to make amends for bad experience. Went to LeCirque back in the day when Sirio was the ringmaster. This place bears no resemblance to its heritage. Too many other good places to go in the neighborhood to bother going here.

Very good restaurant in Pierre Hotel. Small, but with excellent food and great service. We both had a wonderful red snapper dish--but everything was great. It's in a small space off the hotel lobby and isn't intimate as people peer in all the time and walk through. But it's a very good restaurant if you're in that area off 5th Avenue. Highly reccommend.

I really appreciated this experience. The food was absolutely wonderful. The service was so awesome as well. From the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left , we were treated so well. The lady at the door took our coats and gave us a choice of a banquette or another table. We chose the banquette, and enjoyed the quiet ambiance. The food came quickly once we made our order. The food was incredibly tasty. We each enjoyed our respective choices from the menu and were allowed time to savor our meal. The absolute BEST part were the desserts! We were treated with an extra complimentary dessert and a lovely talk with the pastry sous chef, Tika. She explained the desserts given and we noted how each one was made to look so perfectly lovely, and the taste was simply outstanding! I would definitely come back to try other items on their menu, and definitely for the desserts!

I had a business lunch where a group of eight of us had to be in and out in about an hour. The service was terrific, from the hostess to the waitress. They were attentive, accommodating and we finished two courses in the allotted time and never felt rushed. They had a number of specials which most of the diners took advantage of. I would definitely recommend this for a business lunch.

Booked this restaurant primarily due to its proximity to the office of the client with whom we were meeting, as well as their reputation. It did not disappoint. Service was fantastic, sensitive and intuitive to allow for our goal of discussion and as we booked at the beginning of the lunch hour (though it filled quickly), the intimate and carpeted environment allowed for effective communication across the table of 5. The food was fantastic and the pace felt unrushed. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for an upscale, top notch, dining experience.

We went to the fixed price Christmas lunch with a group of four people. Very friendly service, and the flow of everything was great - food coming just at the right time. Good coffee, well portioned plates and a good variety of seafood options too. The atmosphere was elegent, although we were expecting to feel more of a Christmas vibe given that they were advertising Christmas lunch. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

I thought Christmas lunch would have held some sort of festive cheer or at least some holiday ambiance, background music, something!
The service was ok. But that is about all that would pass where I am from.
The food was average at best. Pre cooked and heated to order. And it was not all that busy to justify having pre cooked food.
Dry chicken. Dry pasta. Uninspired ravioli. Grey 'greens'. Soggy skin fish.
For that price tag and location, it really should be reevaluated.
Not impressed.

This was my first time here. Everything from the greeting to the goodbyes was wonderful. Although there were only a few tables at 7pm on Wed 12/23 the staff was very friendly & helpful. Wine list, water preference menu were all delivered promptly, & the waiter told me about the daily specials as I was enjoying cocktails/wine. The sweetbread app & diver scallop special entree were both expertly prepared & presented. Service was discreet & prompt. For dessert I selected the pistachio panna Cota mousse, which was also delicious. I can't wait to return.

Food was good while being a little high priced. The hostess and manager were very friendly but we felt totally ignored by our primary waitstaff. Perhaps we weren't spending enough because he rarely checked on us and then when we told him we didn't want coffee or dessert, he never came back. I appreciate not being rushed but we had to ask for our bill.
