Diner Reviews
  • "I used a groupon on a Friday evening with my boyfriend. we had reservations but it took at least 30 minutes for a server to come to our table. my boyfriend had to get up and inquire. The food was just ok and not worth the price we would have paid without the groupon. We were excited about the live entertainment but because they kept having technical difficulties we left shortly after they started."

  • "I ordered the Whole Red Snapper head and all, WOW what a huge fish. The server said it weighed 5 pounds. Well is was great for PICTURE TAKING, but not very good. The batter was very thick and a little scorched , tasteless and the inside closer to the head was not a pretty sight nor a good taste. It came with white grits, tasteless. We had appetizers calamari, and chicken wings which were very good . I am not saying not to try the snapper just saying we did not enjoy it."

  • "This was a groupon visit. I found the food to be very tasty. Service is a bit sketchy though our waiter made up for it as best he could. Food courses were served out of order. Seems restaurants don't teach how to time courses. Our table had 8 plate on it when salad and entrees showed up at the same time. Food was good enough to overcome that. Staff walked around w no smiles. (Except our waiter who was entertaining and had great knowledge of the menu) Very urban and singles scene."

  • "We made reservations online and were seated within 10mins of arriving. I don't know if it was an off night but our wait staff never showed up to our table we requested one on 3 separate occasions I would up calling the manager via my phone and she came upstairs to the rooftop immediately and took extremely great care of us and also assigned a GREAT waitress to our party. It started out on a sour note but ended great. I would return again the music was great the food was enjoyable but the ambiance was perfect for the birthday get together we had there."

  • "The crowd is energetic. The food is good. The service is professional and pleasant. The only drawback is that the live entertainment does not perform until midnight. We had dinner reservations around the dinner hour and had to leave before the band even started. Would have been more fun with the performance. Still, I would recommend it; just go late."

  • "Reservations were made at Café Circa for Sunday Feb 16, 2014 for 5:00 PM. We arrived at the restaurant around 4:50 PM, the establishment was closed. We were very disappointed. Somehow, there should be some type of communication between Café Circa and OpenTable, not to accept reservations for a restaurant when closed. Unfortunately, I have to give a poor rating because unable to write a review without a rating..."

  • "im a foodie and have bee to many restaurants in atlanta, i mus and willsay tht this was the worst dining experience ever. we arrved on time for our reservation and was sat after a few minutes we had a party of 8 on our left and a party of 25 on our right, the large party had people coming in and out forcing us to move to alo them passage, the tables are very close to each other and there is no intimacy. the portionswere very small and the dishes were very costly we wentolely for the oxtails which is supposed to be thier signature ite well we order it and then the watress came back and told us tey were sold out at 9;30 pm on a saturday night, this was the end ofthe dining experience for us the restof the nght was a wash"

  • "After realizing nothing seemed the same inquiry if the establishment was under new management and was told it was unfortunately the new management apparently did not keep the same staff starting from the servers, bartenders, & cooks. Not the same spot at all."

  • "The service was AWFUL! The only items available were chicken wings and fries! The restaurant was OUT of everything and was not apologetic about it at all! The service was not pleasant. The waitress seemed to be annoyed with our party. She admitted the restaurant was transitioning between owners. They should just shut the doors until everything is final because it is just a waste of time to dine there."

  • "We are from Charleston SC... (southern food mecca), so I am pretty critical of, well, almost every place I eat because I am surrounded by incredible restaurants. So, that being said, my star ratings might be a little harsh. We found Cafe Circa on Open Table searching for places to eat while on our weekend trip. Pro's: OMG the coco bread! And happy hour small plates are $5.00 (which we weren't expecting!!!. Con's: Not the best service I have ever had, though not the worst. Our gumbo came out cold, which they quickly took back to fix. NO names on the wine list (ex: Chardonnay, Moscato....Bummer for me, cause I love to nerd out on wine! Overall, cool little joint. On to one of the other bazillion places in ATL!"

  • "Only three items were available on the menu. They ran out of food."

  • "We were in full force ready to celebrate a birthday. The waitress was not friendly, the menu was limited to 3 entrees, and wine was only being served by the glass this Friday night (that's a rip off being they are about $9 per glass)."

  • "I would be very happy to recommend this place, but am unable to since upon being seated we waited for 30 minutes without further service before cutting our losses and leaving. The food looks like it would be good, ambiance was nice, and the hostesses were nice, but the lack of service and actually dining left us feeling that the place was wanting. Another couple seated at the bar were served immediately, so I can't say this is a common problem, but it was a problem in our experience."

  • "I went to this restaurant w a group of friends after looking up their specials, and I was really disappointed with the service. When we asked the waitress what drinks were included on the special, she turned the question right back around to us and asked what specials we knew about. We ended up having to get a manager to clarify exactly what the drink and appetizer specials were which really killed the mood. At the end, we did end up getting free drinks (for the 5-7 free well drink special) and paying half for our appetizers (not including the curry lamb pops). Overall, the food was pretty good and the vibe was nice. Only downside was the service. Take home: do your research about the specials prior to coming into the restaurant!"
