a great experience!I had eaten here with a good friend while visiting Savannah. This was our best restaurant experience by far. We were seated downstairs in the "wine cellar", and Michael was a FANTASTIC and enthusiastic and knowledgeable server. I highly recommend!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMParis in SavannahWe stop regularly in Savannah when traveling to Florida each year and had a hard time finding a place in Savannah that didn't seem like a tourist stop. We have succeeded with Circa that is a true local gem with an authentic french bistro quality and feel.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Bistro DinnerWe dined in the "basement" room, which is decorated sort of like a French shrine under a cathedral. It was cozy and quiet. The food was nice bistro fare: salads, roast chicken, cassoulet. Portions are large, so consider sharing.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial placeMy wife and I were celebrating our 15th anniversary. This was a perfect choice. The staff was fun, and very friendly, attending to all of our needs.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about our mealEverything about our meal was delicious!

From the wine and appetizer, to the exquisite meal, to the desert, this was an overall spectacular dining experience.
The service was top notch, the flavors outstanding, and the ambiance perfect for a special night. I would highly recommend Circa 1875.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table was ready on time,Our table was ready on time, the food was excellent, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was like being in a French bistro.

We thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience. We would definitely go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTHis restaurant impressedTHis restaurant impressed me with his its historic ambiance. ALthough I had requested the wine cellar, as I had read it was quieter and nicer, the main dining area was suitable. They do not serve in the wine cellar during the week, only Friday and Saturday nights. I think that should be mentioned on their website. As for the food; the menu is very limited in choices (like 6 or 7entrees), but it is a bistro.I had the steak, which was very good, and the truffle fries were addicting. My husband had the burger, which was smothered in a peppercorn sauce, something you'd find on a great steak. He also enjoyed the escargot in garlic. Bread was awesome.With chardonnay ($36)bill came to $120 with tax/tip. Pricey, but good.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a nice time we had.What a nice time we had. Nana and Papa took our 17 yo, vegitarian grand daughter out for a treat and we were well accommodated. Enjoyed the atmosphere and was taken back to pleasant Paris dinning experiences. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly, adding to our good time. Thanks for the pleasant experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA good restaurant! The menuA good restaurant! The menu is good and reasonably priced, except for the bar, and we found those prices to be on the high side.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMwe ate in the wine cellar.we ate in the wine cellar. Very quiet compared to the bar or dining room upstairs.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good atThe food was very good at Circa. I'm not a french cuisine connoisseur, but everything we had was great. If you want a more private setting request a table in the wine cellar. You won't have the view onto the street, but it's much quieter and a more intimate setting. There's a booth right next to their wine closet that is tucked out of the way of the other tables. Everything our server recommended and advised about was spot on. There was a bit of a lag time in getting our drinks refilled, but it didn't impact our dinner.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth a visit.Fantastic service and a very pleasant dining room. The menu is old-fashioned French standards, like Coquille St. Jacques, which are hard to find. The appetizer special was Steak Tartare and it was really outstanding. Wine list is limited. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful little place inWonderful little place in the heart of downtown Savannah. The food was excellent and the service even better!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant. StruckVery nice restaurant.

The food was superb and the service was amazing! We can't wait to return!
Thank you so much!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAn immediate favorite!We couldn't believe that we had not learned about Circ 1875 earlier. Exquisite French food in an attractive and distinctive setting. This became one of our favorite restaurants on the first visit. And the foie gras was out of this world!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere is charmingThe atmosphere is charming and the food was all well-executed bistro-style food. Combined with a wonderful server, it was a very enjoyable evening.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJeff SeeleyTwo gents at Savannah Wine Cellar (12 Oaks Shopping Center, Mike and Dan ?) recommended Circa 1875, and they were spot-on. Circa 1875 delivered on promise of great food and solid list of wines to accompany. The restaurant is eclectic, tastefully decorated by obvious Francophile. Restaurant is adjacent to bar/bistro that could do me in were I alone. Fortunately my wife and daughter ensured great food were paired with libations. Steak frites is not my typical go-to, but having enjoyed seafood night prior, I ordered and was rewarded; NY Strip was never so tender and juicy, frites as good as in Belgium. Cheese plate culmination was superb. Our waitress was fantastic - a rare professional.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was stellar.The service was stellar. Attentive but not hovering. They accommodated our seating request without missing a beat. The dining room and bar had a french bistro vibe, the wine cellar was quiet and a great place for a romantic meal. The staff made us feel like we we frequent and appreciated guests. Even on a busy spring night they were more interested in making sure we were taken care of than flipping the table. Will absolutely return.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, service and ambienceThe food, service and ambience was remarkable but, as important that evening, was how accommodating the staff were. We could only get a 6 p.m. sitting & had a 7 p.m. show with some distance between the two events. The staff understood our time restriction & made sure our orders were served promptly and the bill processed quickly. Although it was a rush for them, their efficiency made for a relaxing dinner for us. Great food, great service & a great evening.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMReal Neighborhood GemThis is one of our favorite restaurants in Savannah and it keeps getting better for food and service.

She let me try a taste of rose and I went back to my chardonnay! We did not want to overeat so we split a pâté de ompagne and each had a salad. The bread along with everything else is homemade and wonderful. We could have been in France. Their list of wines by the glass is excellent. We were delighted with this restaurant.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, great food andGreat place, great food and drink and great staff.
