A branch of the venerable 20th century New York institution, the Delhi Le Cirque is elegant, roomy, and has good service. It has the air of a gentleman's club and though the menu replicates some of the stodgier Le Cirque standards, such as pasta primavera, the chefs have moved beyond the New York original’s French pretentions to give a more Italian touch to the menu.
I was staying at The Leela Palace Hotel, in which this restaurant is situated. The design and ambience is lovely; however, the food was not up to the standard one would expect in this most lovely hotel. The presentation of the food was excellent, but the actual tastes of both the first and second courses were sadly 'neutral' and uninspiring. I had chicken, well, quail, as my main course and it was bland! I suspect that in either London or Paris this restaurant would not survive. For a "flagship" restaurant in an otherwise lovely hotel, " mediocre" is the kindest word I can use to describe it!
We had a group of 14 for dinner in Le Cirque. The room itself is lovely and the staff assigned to us were spot on. Made for a nice birthday celebration.
I got the tasting vegetarian menu, and was very disappointed. I went in with high expectations and was met with bland food that didn't have the depth of flavour I was expecting. The service and ambience was there, but the food was a huge let down. I would NEVER recommend this place.
Fine dining Italian at its best with tables in front of an open kitchen. Innovative menu, great wine list. Tiramisu dessert prepared at the table a must. Excellent service. Wonderful 10th large balcony outside for before or after dinner drinks and relaxing. Highly recommended.
At the 10 floor of the Leela Palace. [no matter where you stay..} Take a Chauffeur and get there. Go after the 7 tasting menu of Chef Mateo. Fontana. See is amazing finger print in any dish and find out how he keeps the Le Cirque reputation in India as well Enjoy great wine selection and say BRAVO
There are few places in Delhi that may seem like a private club humming with secrets and power. It is where bigwigs like to relax over a glass of wine thinking about a new strategy or negotiating a deal. One such restaurant will reflect an ambience keenly resembling a gentlemanâ€™s club is Le Cirque. Beautiful backdrop of The Leela Palace, Chanakyapuri, Delhi, the restaurant is one of the most expensive places to eat in the city. The wooden walls and floors gleam in all its glory setting the tone of 20th century private clubs. The posh ambience grabs you the moment you step off the elevator instantly making you nostalgic for old world charm. The restaurant is the branch of the famous 20th century New York parent by the same name. Located on top floor of the hotel the windows gifts you a magnificent view of the city.
The restaurant has a reputation to uphold being a part of such regal hotel and carrying a culinary historic name. The parent menu has a lot of French influence but the Le Cirque has slowly moved on to include Italian recipes which have taken over. The food is a molecular gastronomeâ€™s delight. Visually stunning the presentations are a work of art in itself. To start with caeserâ€™s salad, fennel soup, mushroom broth, double cooked mozzarella, sliders with truffle dusted fries are to die for. The pastas are delectable especially crab pasta, beef cheek ravioli, truffle spaghetti and veg lasagne. In mains mushroom risotto, radicchio risotto, pork belly, scallops, tuna, smoked himalayan trout, chicken with baby potatoes, beef with mashed potatoes and pan seared sea bass are worth having. Their risotto Bollinger is actually cooked in Bollinger champagne which is unique in the city and a must have.
The dessert menu however steals the spotlight. A vast and delicious collection the chefs will present you with tempting sweets to conclude your meal. Deconstructed tiramisu, chocolate lava cake, truffle crÃ¨me brulee, dark chocolate fondant, sorbets will dazzle you with burst of flavours in your mouth. Le Cirque has an extensive wine list too. Selective wines are stored here to magnify your dining experience. Their signature cocktails are very yummy and well blended by expert bartender. Choose to sit in wine cellar, private dining area or al fresco however the mood hits you. The romanticism of the ambience will make your visit a memorable one.
