Great experienceFive of us went for dinner on a weekend evening. Menu was interesting & hard to pick just one item in each category. French bread was terrific. Enjoyed the crab dip, spinach salad, filet & bread pudding. The salad's are huge, well dressed and interesting. All the entree's we had were terrific. Desserts were big enough & fun to share. Waiter was a little stuffy but very efficient & accommodating. The only negative was the lighting -- pretty dim inside so it was hard to see the menu's. Great time had by all.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Pre-Show DinnerMet a friend for a great meal before seeing a show at Thalian Hall. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. The Burrata with Heirloom Tomatoes was outstanding, so good we both wish we had ordered two instead of sharing. The waiter's suggestion of pairing it with a Tapas plate of Speck made it even more spectacular. We ordered some other very tasty dishes and while they were delicious, we longed for more burrata and tomatoes. We will be back for that! The waiter had other ideas we might have listened to had we not had ideas of our own. There's always next time.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sushi dealWe were drawn to the 1/2 price sushi deal on Tuesday, and it was everything we hoped for. Some guests in our party are not sushi lovers, but the exciting menu made for some hard choices, as everything looked very enticing. One guest selected the quail and raved about the accompanying risotto. His menu for the evening was selected from the prix fix option, which provided a fresh and upscale salad, an entree and a dessert to die for.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCirca worth viditingEnjoyable venue. Service very good as was food and wine pairing
Recommend for many occasions, I.e. groups, special event or occasion.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must In WilmingtonDefinitely a place for great entrees. Remember to check out the daily specials.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHit all the notes!Excellent food, great service, pleasant atmosphere, reasonable prices5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWilmington GemI must have been blind. For what ever reason we never heard of this restaurant in downtown Wilmington until this past weekend. We has a large party of 6 and dinner was fantastic. Our oldest daughter ordered tapas after taper filling us all with one great plate after another. Sorry that I got so stuffed I never did get to order an entre. At least intil next time!! you have to try this place.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice break from beach grub!Often when we go to the beach we get caught in the "yet another fried fish place" trap. Circa 1922 was a very nice change. For a tapas place, as the waiter explained it, they are a bit short on actual "tapas" type dishes, but everything we ate was well prepared and tasty. They may want to do something about the name though. It may describe the interior decorating, but not the food.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgroup dinnerone of our favorite 'night out' restaurants. on this occasion, we had a group of five. food was great but they were out of quite a few items which was a bit of a disappointment. great location downtown, highly recommend!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining Experience!!I went to the restaurant with another couple to celebrate my wedding anniversary. The food was really delicious and the service was excellent!! I would definitely go back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCindy loves CircaA lovely and yet hip restaurant with amazing ambiance. If you can't decide what to order from the extensive menu, you can't go wrong with the fixed price menu. It was all so good and our server was awesome.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation CelebrationPerfect spot for a post-graduation celebration meal. Our first time visit. Wonderfully surprised by the food quality, wines, and atmosphere. We'll be back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food!Circa 1922 had a very varied menu, everyone will find something they will like. Both dishes we ordered were outstanding. The lighting was a bit dark, but that may be a good thing for some people. Highly recommend!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA change for the betterThis place has been here for a very long time and I have never been impressed with their food but decided to give it a try again. First visit back was Easter and food was very good, hoping that wasn't a fluke tried it again and found the same consistency. Food was very good and service was great. I hope this trend continues and I'll keep coming back along with telling other people to do the same.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPicky dinerProm night...so crazy busy. We had a mature waiter who really knew the menu and preparations, he gave us the best service he could (which was very good) considering the huge prom tables with separate checks, etc. Food was very good. Hubby had the lamb, I had the scallops, we shared the spinach salad and spring rolls. And we shared dessert...key lime pie....YUM EEE all in all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, knowledgable servicWent to Circa on a Satruday night. Had a wonderful meal and some drinks. Can't recommend this place enough. I will certainly be back the next time I'm in Wilmington.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Food, Friendly CrewGreat find, and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to dine in style and make your stomach happy! Wine list was pretty solid. Server was new but was the first one to admit that he was learning (three days in). Was very pleased with everything and will definitely be back when in the area. Highly suggest the spinach salad, as well as the sushi.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh end Southern.Wonderfully inspired menu, good wine list, and a high end French cousine presentation of classic Southern cooking. The shrimp with grits was fabulous, top marks for quality of ingredients, service and presentation. The creme broule is enormous!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a bit dark and hardIt was a bit dark and hard to see the menu.

I'm never disappointed in Circa.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife there for aI took my wife there for a birthday dinner, and it was lovely. Nice a quiet to have a great dinner. Not so loud that you couldn't hold a conversation. The service and staff were great also. We would go back in a heartbeat.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCirca is definitely my favoriteCirca is definitely my favorite restaurant in wilmington. I love the variety if good they have. I love their sushi! It's my favorite in wilmington. I can only recommend the restaurant or even as a bar to have a nice cocktail or drink.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent for brunch needexcellent for brunch need to have biscuit as alternative to English muffin3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious. The spinach saladDelicious. The spinach salad and the trigger fish were some of the best I've ever had.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love this restaurantThis was our first visit to Circa 1922 and we went for dinner. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. My wife had the gnocchi with wild mushrooms and I had the fresh local shrimp with grits. She loved her dish and I loved mine. The shrimp tasted like nothing you get from the supermarket, these were plump and sweet, and the dish had a subtle smoked flavor...wonderful. Both plates were perfectly portioned and not over-priced. The restaurant is easy to find in historic downtown, and public parking is around the corner & is very reasonably priced so don't waste your time trying to find street parking. Should we return to Wilmington, we will return to this restaurant. We give Circa 1922 the highest marks.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe main courses were a bitThe main courses were a bit too small and the dessert was way too large.
Otherwise, very good.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter many recommendations,After many recommendations, we finally went, and we loved it.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely atmosphere and interestingLovely atmosphere and interesting menu. Tapas were well presented and the main courses were plated very nicely. Atmosphere was cozy and intimate. Thinking that spring/early summer dining would be outstanding with the windows open and the interior romatic lighting. We will go back and certainly enjoy the "colassal" desserts. Easily sharable with 4 people and a lovely ending to a lovely meal. Accomodated large parties (around 12 were very comfortably seated) as well as smaller groups. We had 4, nearby several 2s and some 5s and 6s. Plenty of room to move around without being crowded.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience at 1922We had a great experience. Scallops were cooked to perfection and sushi was awesome. Great location downtown. Margarita was served in high ball glass full of ice, gone in 5 sips. I ask waiter for "bigger" margarita and he was happy to suggest options.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in WilmingtonWe had a great time at this little gem! Delicious food at reasonable prices. Isn't that what we want? The tapas menu is small. but good. I wish they had a few more choices. Entrees good. Desserts very good. I could have been happy with just tapas and desserts. Nice atmosphere too. Enjoy!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgood timeNice looking restaurant with nice wood floors and lots of glass and mirrors. Food and service were excellent. had the sushi, steak, bass and a pasta dish...all good. Desserts are a must!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
