Cafe Circa ReviewThe ambiance was outstanding. The food was quite good. The only complaints that I have are 1. The parking is atrocious. That would probably be the thing that prevents me from going back. The free parking is either street parking or a very small lot that is shared by three establishments (these fill up fast! I got there at 7:45 and nothing was available). I ended up having to pay to park in the lot across the street. 2. The 2 hour limit on the weekend even though there are vacant tables. That's right. Even if the place is ½ empty, you only have two hours to dine (either from the start of your reservation time or when you're seated, if you're a walk-in).6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of sixWe went to Cafe Circa for Happy Hour.
I made reservations for 6pm, I arrived early. The hostess was very accomendating. I asked for patio seating. We eere able to be seated on the rooftop. It was great. The only complaint we had was there was only one umbrella and another group was using it.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food - Ambience AmorphousWe have been to Cafe Circa several times, and the food has always been very good. Scoutmob got us in the door and keeps us going back. I always struggle with whether to select the ox tail or the pork chop; my wife with the whole fried snapper or the salmon. I prefer going during the week because the weekends are busy, the place is noisy, and parking can be difficult to find. I guess this would make it a hot spot. During the week, it can get busy, but it makes for a more romantic or intimate setting.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCirca Delivers on FoodOur server Torin was excellent. He was attentive and didn't skip on the details. The wine he recommended was on point and matched very well with our menu choices. My pork chop was cooked medium, to perfection just as I ordered. The calamari was tasty. And my dinner companion thoroughly enjoyed the whole fried snapper. Overall a great night.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat last minute accommodationmy twin and I met up in Atlanta from Vegas and DC before heading to Turks and Caicos for our 40th birthday. We have a few relatives and sorority sisters that reside in Atlanta and one of them suggested we go to Cafe Circa for happy hour. It was a great suggestion, because the food was tasty and the drinks were good and strong. Not to mention, happy hours last past 7 p.m. until 10. Who get beat that? $5 drinks and appetizers.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMa night for me and my bffGlad I was advised to make reservations! Very popular place. Food very good. Grreat hangout spot.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemWent to Cafe Circa to watch the MayWeather fight and had a great time. We had a reservation, but there was a 2 hour time limit, so you don't really get to enjoy your food because you feel rushed--especially if you're spending money and not just there for the fight. Overall it's a decent place. I like the vibe. The food is always good and the drinks are pretty decent. I would definitely go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood vibe though, as othersGood vibe though, as others have stated, it can be a bit noisy but not in an annoying way. We chatted with the table next to us and had an enjoyable evening. Highly recommended but be prepared for higher than average drink prices.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent date to take your wifeMe and my wife had an awesome time,excellent service, excellent food,I will recommend Cafe Circa to friend we will be back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a 2nd Chance!!First time visit and thought it is a nice cozy spot to hang out with friends during Happy Hours. Strongly advise to come early for parking is very limited. Service was very good. Loved the Roof Top setting w/ DJ!. Salmon cakes & wings appetizers were awesome!! Dessert was disappointing. Cinnamon & nutmeg was too overpowering in the peach cobbler. Had the Red Snapper with grits & string beans for our entree. Fish & grits were good but VERY salty!!! Stunned that the head chef would allow this to happen; where's the kitchen quality check!? I mentioned to the waiter about the salty food, she quickly apologized and asked to have it remade. Unfortunate, it was getting late & I couldn't wait. I believe it's worth another chance & will go again4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to eat, relaxA great place to eat, relax and listen to music. Dinner and bar are both phenomenal!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location and atmosphere.Great location and atmosphere. They offer cigars so that was an extra bonus for me. The rooftop deck was great. They have these huge heaters that makes it feel real comfortable on a chilly night. The only thing that bothered me was the time it took to place our food order. Our food came before our drinks, which is a big NO NO for me.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty food. Overall a veryTasty food. Overall a very nice dining experience. I recommend the cocktails too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery romantic and classy.My husband and I absolutely love this place. We came here last year for our anniversary, and have continued to come back ever since. One of my favorite spots is on the roof, when the weather is real nice. Will definitely be coming back soon.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second time diningThis is my second time dining here and it was just as good as the first.
