Le Cirque

Las Vegas
French Restaurant
$$$$

The Vegas spin-off of the famous Manhattan restaurant by the same name, Le Cirque offers an authentic taste of France right on the Strip. Helmed by wunderkind Chef Wilfried Bergerhausen, the Michelin-star kitchen serves two different tasting menus -- the five-course <em>dégustation</em> and ten-course <em>prestige,</em> respectively -- that feature artfully plated, modern renditions of classic dishes like sautéed foie gras in a calvados-cider sauce and Japanese Wagyu beef striploin with braised oxtail and bordellaise sauce. The wine list boasts over 900 selections and emphasizes French varietals, which the on-site sommelier will be happy to discuss with you if you'd like a suggestion for pairings. Reservations are highly sought at this vibrant satin-laden spot, so be sure to call ahead and don't forget your classy attire -- the flavors here are boundless, but the dress code is strict.

Le Cirque was closed for much of the pandemic, but reopened in late 2021, proving it still knows how to present French fine dining in a way few others can match. The menu was fully revamped by new executive chef, Dameon Evers, who's understanding of complex, balanced flavors is seen in a delicate Hawaiian Kampachi with pineapple mint and an exclusive 45-day dry-aged Mishima Ribeye with matsutake mushroom, smoked beet, and red wine sauce. Meals come in three, six, or ten-course tasting menus; a format that—while pricey—allows guests to comfortably control their spending from beginning to end. Le Cirque isn't usually open on Mondays, but is making an exception for Valentine's Day with a special five-course menu for $288 per person. It includes elevated takes on a Red Gem Lettuce Salad, Foie Gras, Koshihikari Rice, and Grilled Japanese Wagyu with a Raspberry Mousse dessert. The dining room is as charming as ever with a vintage circus theme, Bellagio fountain views, and an experienced service team, some of whom have been in place more than 20 years.
