    One of the five best French restaurants in NYC. Very upscale and very expensive but the food is out of this world. Great environment and quiet

    The food is always wonderful here. It's not 100% authentic however it's some of the best I have had in the states. The staff can be a little odd but they appear to not have as much turnover lately.

    The spectacular service at Sirio Macioni's classic can't be beat with offerings that range from confit foie gras and red snapper crudo to prawns cassolette and its famed crème brûlée. Zagat

    Everything is good at Le Cirque. Sirio and his sons have a very high standard. We have enjoyed their hospitality for so many years.

    Went here for my 21st birthday dinner - unparalleled atmosphere, top-notch dining, and home to an amazing wine tower. A true classic and must-see masterpiece in the culinary industry!

    Unique version of Caesar salad with tasty dressing and sunny side egg on toast. Delicious.

    Excellent Lobster Rissoto, Lamb and kitchen efficiency. Same cant be said for hectic service and the pretentious snob of a hostess who crudely shoves you aside and lacks the manners to say goodnight.

    One of the best fish dishes I've ever had. Chef Raphael Francois' #Turbot with bourbon vanilla sauce is ethereal!

    Could flower soup very delicious, the creme Brule is a must. Do not leave this place without trying it.

    It's not a real warm sort of place but the stand-alone tables at least offer privacy. Cranberry rolls were delicious. Salmon was a little over cooked; the sauce was good; no veggies

    Had my first dinner here this week and the experience was a let down. Front of the house people needed a better training. Our dishes were mixed up why bother asking who's eating what!

    The Chef's Tasting Menu always perfection! However, you can't go wrong with the Seasonal Selection. For dessert you must try the Grand Marnier Souffle!

    Get the "Australian King Prawns" with spaghetti squash, curry, lemon grass & ginger. Best dish out of the whole Tasting Menu! Was pleasantly surprised because I don't normally like squash & ginger.

    Sirio Maccioni claims to be the one to baptize pasta with spring vegetables as "primavera" in 1974. Sirio was at the lead in bringing the fine Italian dining experience to New York.

    Can't believe the orange pannacotta is gone, but the other desserts are (almost) as good. Try the regular pannacotta or the floating islands.

    At Sirio Maccioni’s iconic French outpost, meals are prepared with style and panache. Just think: seared diver scallops atop shiitake foie gras…
