Fine dining under a Vegas big top

18 Tables

The original Le Cirque is legendary because the food is spectacular, and because the service, often led by family patriarch Sirio Maccioni himself, is stellar and welcoming, not stuffy and snobby. Le Cirque at Bellagio holds to the same principles. Maccioni’s sons are Las Vegas residents these days, and they can be seen daily at Le Cirque, running the restaurant to the same exacting standards as its East Coast sibling. In the vibrantly colored, circus-tent-like dining room, expertly executed French cuisine is served. Le Cirque’s signature dish, the potato-crusted sea bass with a red wine reduction, lives up to its reputation as an outstanding offering. The three-course, $125 prix fixe menu is a smart choice.
