Le Cirque - Bellagio Ratings and Reviews
We have visited this restaurant many many times over the years and it has slowly lost it's spark. Some of the food options this time were just not great. The server recommended the chicken which was bland, dry, and not very good at all. Some of the other courses were great, and some were just okay. The ambience is great but it's Vegas and the competition is fierce and I feel they are getting left behind. The wait staff was more harried than usual, less attentive, etc.
This place is simply amazing. My husband and I went as part of our anniversary weekend and it did not disappoint one bit- in fact we are suddenly excited to return to Vegas for another special occasion just so we can have an excuse to eat there again.
From the moment you walk in it's like escaping the buzz of Vegas night life- it's quiet and small and intimate. The servers work together as a team to ensure you have a wonderful experience, but they don't hover- we had plenty of time to talk and enjoy.
The food was simply outstanding French cuisine, but nothing was overdone. Presentation was breathtaking without being gaudy. Just go ahead and get the Parisian mule in the rose gold pineapple- it's worth every sip. If there is chocolate coffee bread being passed/offered, take it. Take it all. We did the 3 course menu and that along with amuse bouches and the bread- it was perfection. I wish I could relive every bite.
If you can, request a table that overlooks the fountains- we were in a lovely booth but I was envious of those who got to look outside and likely see the water show.
Don't hesitate- make a reservation!
LeCirque never disappoints. This was probably my 10th visit to the restaurant. Phenomenal from top to bottom. The bartender at the front: prompt and courteous. The hostess: polite and attentive. The wine steward: very helpful with suggestions, not snooty at all, great sense of humor, and accomodating. Our server: Maurice is a top notch waiter. Polite, attentive, not invasive, funny, and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was superb from appetizer to dessert. Yes, LeCirque is expensive, but the quality and service warrant the price. A definite winner!
En general una muy buena experiencia aunque traia mas expectativas que hicieron que esperara mas. No digo que no me gustara pero el risoto citrico no le gustò a mi esposa. Pedi unos escargots adicionales pero nunca me los trajeron. En esos lugares no debe haber ningún tipo de olvido. Creo que le
Pueden sacar mas provecho a la vista de las fuentes. El sea bass es una delicia. Si es un lugar al que se debe ir pero sòlo una vez.
We were very disappointed with our experience. We had heard such great things about the food, the restaurant and the overall service. Unfortunately, it did not live up to our expectations. The food was mediocre, the white truffle menu didn't really highlight truffles, but just took the main dish and put some shaved truffles on top, and our orders got mixed up several times and they even forgot one of our desserts...
Perfection in every bite, drop of wine and particularly service. As a couple who divides our time between Los Angeles and New York City, Le Cirque is categorically our favorite restaurant in the country. From the moment we step in, we are welcomed back and Frederick's knowledge of wine coupled with a very wry self deprecating sense of humor always makes the night memorable. We love the sea bass, rabbit "three ways" and particularly the desserts. It is very easy to spend multiple hours and multiple hundreds of dollars enjoying the evening and given the mayhem of Las Vegas, Le Cirque is an oasis of civility we visit at least annually.
The food was really very good. I especially liked the chocolate ball dessert, which was fun, innovative, and excellent. My overall rating reflects two things that detract from the dining
experience. The room feels very out of date, oppressively old fashioned and stuffy. And it is much too small to have so many servers wandering around in the dining area. They always are in each others way, and it creates a feeling that they are hovering. None of the 3 star restaurants in Pairs where I have dined made me feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I did feel that way in Le Cirque.
My husband & I had a fabulous dinner here. We both ordered the 3 prix fixe meal. It was a perfect spot for our special - the ambiance, the service & the food were impeccable. All of our food was delicious But our favorites were the Japanese yellowtail for the appetizer, the Wagyu beef (that my husband ordered) for the main course and the chocolate ball for dessert. My husband decided to splurge & got the wine pairings. It was a very relaxing meal and a very enjoyable night.
Overpriced for what you get with pretentious staff. Totally ignored by staff after third course. Fourth course came 30 minutes after third course and stone cold. We asked for bill and left and will never return. Very disappointing after seeing such glowing reviews. Don't know what happened but we were warned by friends who had eaten there to pass. We should have listened.
Our meal started off wonderfully! Then there was a terrible lag between courses and no one explained, apologized or even looked our way. The last course, chicken, was very pedestrian, almost dry, with taste I could have come up with at home. It was a very disappointing finish.
We've been going there for at least 5 years and this may be the last.
Phenomenal personal service from the maître d who acknowledged and made my partner's birthday extra special by providing a delectable ice cream cake. The extras provided throughout the meal (e.g., an appetizer and some takeaway pastries after the dessert) and the maître d's special attention throughout the three course meal took some of the sting off price for the dinner (for two with drinks (~$325 prior to the generous tip). My boyfriend and I will never forget the delightful meal and dining experience.
There is nothing that can quite compare to the Le Cirque experience. Located inside the Bellagio Las Vegas, this space transcends dining and elevates it into a experience like no other. While I have never been to this dining room I was treated like a valued member of their family. Upon entry I was greeted by name and from that moment on my every need was met seemingly without asking. Attentive waitstaff led by the incomparable Martin listened quietly to my conversations and offered suggestions and helpful information concerning not only the menu but the property and Las Vegas itself. I selected the seasonal risotto (citrus) as my starter followed by the sea bass. Both were spectacular and both in the top three meals that I have ever had. My only regret about my visit was only having enough time to order from the pre- theater menu, a limited three course menu. I brought my father to share the experience with me. He was disappointed that we would be unable to order the soufflé. Martin overheard us and offered us the soufflé after the theater. After finishing dinner we were off to the theater. When we returned Martin had us set up at the bar where we each had the most spectacular chocolate soufflés. Here is my advise to both myself and anyone who is reading this: On my next Vegas trip I am dedicating an entire evening to Le Cirque, instead of dinner and a show dinner WILL be the show. Do the full tasting menu. Have Martin guide you, he will not steer you wrong. Finally, respect the executive chef - his work is beyond comprehension. I will never look at dining the same way. Now all I can think about is how to get back to Le Cirque as fast as I can.
Absolutely glorious- the food is just so perfectly conceived and prepared and served with gracious attention - the evening was a joy! We enjoyed every minute of our two and an half hours overlooking the Bellagio fountains in the silk draped dining room. It is a rare opportunity to relax and enjoy an experience to delight the senses. What was something of a disappointment was the open use of cellphones in the dining room by diners at nearby tables - people literally answering and making calls at their tables. If you really are that important, take it outside please.
We loved our evening dining at this restaurant. The food was fabulous and so beautifully presented! We loved the Lobster Avocado Salad as well as the Chocolate Sphere dessert. The service was impeccable and our every need was quickly attended to and beyond any service we have had anywhere in our 44 years of marriage. Our waiter Martin Fischer was personable and was the finest waiter we have ever been served by. Our evening out was one to remember always!!! Thank you all at Le Cirque.
We are always amazed by the food, never have had a bad meal. The wine choices are endless and amazing. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Vegas. A must go to every time we come to Vegas. The wine recommendations are always fun and very tasty. I can't say enough about the staff. They are always friendly and helpful.
Fabulous ambience, food & service! Four of us did the Degustation menu (5-course) with the wine pairings. Our waiters and sommelier were very friendly, attentive and fun to chat with. They were engaging and informative about the wines and food without being overbearing in conversation. The food was delicious with great dish presentations. Since we were a party of 4 we ordered every dish option on the menu. All the dishes were fabulous and the winners were the Wagyu steak and truffle risotto. The blue crab dish presentation is super cool, and it too was delicious, however, the portion is very small and doesn't merit the $65 upcharge for the dish.
The chef's "pineapple ball" palette cleanser is delightful and promises to have everyone giggling after the experience. No one expects the reaction in your mouth..without spoiling it - just enjoy it when it is served at the table.
While we expected to pay a lot for the meal...their pricing exceeded our expectations with the supplemental charges on certain dishes...it was worth the experience, but not likely a repeat restaurant for us because of the cost. The base price of $135 per head is a fair value for the food and so is the wine paring price of $88 per head as they served fine French wines. The supplemental charges for the crab, truffle risotto and Wagyu beef are over priced.
The ambiance of the room is quiet, romantic with views of the Bellagio water shows without the music. The circus tent decor is dated and could use a fresh makeover. The look doesn't hold up to most of the other competing top restaurants in Las Vegas.
Glad we dined there for the full and memorable experience!
This place is a pretty penny but worth every one! We did our research and settled on this restaurant as a little date night splurge. What a treat! The food is exquisite (like art!) and delicious. Plus, you get little bonus foodie things to try that are not on the menu from the chef. The bread service is amazing. I loved how all of the servers tag teamed taking care of us. It was actually confusing at first but soon realized we were not just assigned to one waiter but to a whole group of very attentive waiters. Also, it was intimidating at first, as we are not rich and were much younger than the other patrons, but the servers are so welcoming and down to earth, that you soon realize, it doesn't matter who you are, you are there for the tasting experience! And, the tasting experience will not disappoint. I was super pregnant, but they still offered to make mock-tails so I wouldn't feel sad about not having an adult beverage with my meal. The chef also put a little "congratulations" sign in white chocolate on both my husband and I's dessert which was a sweet touch. The restaurant is so quaint and quiet too. They are also very efficient if you have tickets to "O", which is another plus. I'd definitely go with my husband again on a next trip, if he is willing for another splurge!
