Is Le Cirque overrated?

  • c

Went to Le Cirque last night for the first time to celebrate, and had the worst meal for $100 per person. It tasted as if the lid for the salt had fallen off while seasoning several dishes (soup, the leeks for the cod dish), and everything else was mediocre (the shrimp, the lamb). No wonder why the restaurant was so empty! Maybe the chef is out on vacation? I don't know what their issue was, but for a meal that cost over $100pp, the quality of the food was unacceptable. Don't waste your money going to Le Cirque, go elsewhere, unless you're in the mood to consume a lifetime's worth of sodium in one sitting!

        1. Well i'm with you, i thought it was overrated. While I didn't think it was nearly as bad as ur experience, it was completely unmemorable and i'm not trying to go back anytime soon
