    Expecting more for a restaurant in the Hoxton Hotel. Service was impeccable. Eggs made to order. Just underwhelming on the choices prior to brunch at 11:00am.

    Enjoyed the meal and the restaurant was bustling with excitement. It was a bit loud with the DJ and people talking but not to the point you couldn’t hear your conversation.

    My partner and I came to Cira last year, and we think the portions got a bit smaller this year. We got the pistachio ravioli and lamb steak, although the lamb steak was a big plate, it was not worth the hype in regards to the taste. It was worth going here once for the experience but we should have came to brunch for the second time. Customer service is amazing and the ambience reminds me of those high ends bars.

    the setting: the restaurant is in the lobby of a hotel with high ceilings a variety of table configuration and seating. the noise level is high and energetic. the Lake Street L runs next to it but you don't hear the train at all. the staff: attentive and great level of service especially provided by David who suggested we stagger the food we ordered. our plates were cleaned between each stage and dishes were brought in a steady pace. the food: olives, stuffed dates, falafels and brown butter hummus to start. For dinner we ordered sauteed spinach, fennel salad, pistachio ravioli and pire pire dorado. The portions are all on the smallish size but all individually different and delicious. We loved the pistachio ravioli, sauteed spinach, hummus and dorado.

    Outstanding meal! Went for brunch and was highly surprised. Great Mediterranean fare with outstanding flavors and a great restaurant decor/ambiance. Jake, the assistant GM, made our visit well worth it and pointed us to a delicious strawberry dessert that absolutely put the meal over the top. 100% will be returning!

    Nice ambience and food was ok but not stellar, but quite disappointing to have an inattentive server for my 6 person group on a Sat night, when we were there 5:30 and the restrnt was not that busy. It was a bit embarrassing to have my guests (and myself) looking around for the server, multiple times pre-meal and throughout the eve.

    While Cira was challenged by being short staffed, the service was still good. Highly recommend the avocado toast for brunch. Their breakfast sausage might be the best I’ve every had. The crispy potatoes were also terrific.

    Food was outstanding (as always). But the service was very slow, the hostess told us to “be patient” because they were understaffed (she said it literally 4 times before we even sat down). Then we were charged for a drink we ordered but never received.

    I never write reviews. My friends are in town from LA and I took them here. It was my first time and we just kept saying how great the food was. The bone marrow was amazing, falafel so good and my ravioli was INSANE. My friends chicken was delicious and we just kept raving about everything.

    I visit your restaurant frequently. My experience last night was the usual. I waited for a long time for the server to come and when he finally did I ordered a cocktail that took a long time to arrive 30 min. I finished my drink and he didn’t come to check if I wanted another. I waited an additional 25 min for my second drink.

    Our actual server was excellent and the food was great. The weird experience was with the valet. It’s $20 and they only take cash. That left us with $3 for a tip but we only had quarters. The valet stopped us to say that “we could have this back because they only split DOLLARS at the end of the night” and he actually gave it back to us. We apologized and said we didn’t mean to offend them but we just didn’t have more cash. It was a weird experience and felt like we were getting shamed even though we tried to leave a good tip for a valet. It’s a bummer because it soured the whole experience

    I had another GREAT experience at Cira! Booked a reservation for a medium sized party and event staff really worked with me to ensure we had the best set up on the floor. Good and service was excellent—they kept checking on our party to make sure we had everything we needed at all times. I will definitely continue to book here. Thank you very much!

    Very poor service by the waitstaff - everything arrived at different times, 4 people dining, 4 drinks ordered (all arrived at different times over a 30 min span). Same deal with the food, all of our main dishes arrived at different times (my dish contained very under-cooked lima/fava beans). Waiter seemed uninterested in his job.

    The place wasn’t that busy and several servers were aimlessly walking around. Our server, took well over 5 minutes to acknowledge us. Then came over and asked “do you pick what you want for lunch?l. He was trying to be nice but clearly overworked it seemed. The food was awful. How can you screw up a cheeseburger so badly ? Serve grey flattened patty that had rubber texture and no seasoning, that’s how. At least the French fries were good, but that’s all that was good. My dates ancient grain bowl lacked flavor and had a moldy tomato in it. The entire lunch was a miss for us. But we know that a hotel lobby restaurant is always a gamble.
