Food was great but really loudWent On a Friday night and it was hard to hear the person across the table. Food was great! We shared apps but all ordered their own entree, so portions were perfect.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStingy on the drinks but good foodThey put enough ice in the drinks to sink the titanic. It's like they are trying to rip you off in dusguise. I don't mind paying a bit more for a drink, so long as I get a drink.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, interesting presentationLoved it- great menu and decor. Drinks were great but big ice block seemed to leave less room for beverage. The crostini was heavenly and the steamed buns were phenomenal. Only disappointment was that I mentioned my husband's birthday when I reserved on Open Table, as well to the hostess (who confirmed that I would like the S'mores dish and would tell our waiter) and no dessert arrived. I had wanted it to be a surprise and wish that it had been communicated. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed Circa and will definitely be back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding FoodQuality food that dazzle the taste buds with impressive presentation. Fun cocktails and appetizers to fight over.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as usual....My friends and I go there often because we love the food, drinks, and atmosphere. In addition to our favorite dishes we tried a few new ones too (halibut and kale salad) that were really delicious and flavorful. One of the girls was from the Westside and couldn't believe that most of the crafted cocktails were in the 10 dollar range because they are closer to 15 and 16 dollars in other comparable spots!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphereVery fun place to go. The service was absolutely outstanding. The restaurant has a great vibe and a great atmosphere. Really good choice to bring a date. All small plates and everything was good, but very little was outstanding. The pork belly steamed buns were outstanding but the salmon, the duck tacos and the salad were all good, but nothing amazing. The lemon gnocchi was not good. On a recommendation we tried a scotch drink called penicillin which was really good.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous and Eclectic!Great food, and such variety, something for any taste preference. Loved the calamari steak, so tender with flavorful marinade tempting the tastebuds. Halibut so mouthwatering! Enjoyed the Hotel Nacional cocktail, just enough for me! The churros for dessert to die for ! Will definitely come again and have already recommended to friends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!Our server Rochelle was wonderful and the food and cocktails were exceptional! Highly recommend!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, Circa was awesome!Once again, Circa was awesome! Amazing food, great atmosphere and the drinks.... out of this world! My wife and I are huge fans. Only complaint I have is that they don't serve the sardines anymore. Keep up the good work circa!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was a step above.service was a step above. food was unique and on point.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive drinks, but veryExpensive drinks, but very tasty. Ask about their secret drink menu.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.... What did you say?Loud. Great food! Wonderful ambience. Loud. Reasonably priced. Loud. Fantastic drinks. Did I mention that it was loud? We'd go back... maybe not on a Saturday night. What did you say?3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a fan of the strange menuThe restaurant was cool except its not our style of food. There was not one thing on the menu I wanted to eat or for that matter liked. We did try many things off the menu and were not impressed and we are BIG foodie people. Just to get an idea we typically like to spend our date night at MB Post or Strand House. Not a fan of the food at Circa at all also cocktails were so so.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful evening atHad a wonderful evening at Circa on March 12th. Great ambiance and great food. Will go back for sure.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner I've had in a whileThe food was outrageously delicious, the service was excellent, the ambiance was outstanding. A must have is the whole fish, the babaganoush, the charred octopus, and prawns, it's finger licking GOOD.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCirca ReviewCirca is a great addition to the Southbay...Amazing food (especially the grilled octopus, prawns, and the gnocchi with crab), great service (from the minute you walk-in), and an incredible layout so that you can really have a great time socializing while enjoying your stellar meal and uniquely made, one of a kind cocktails (my favorite is the bottled Carrie Bradshaw). The best part about it is that you get all the coolness, food options, drinks of the notable restaurants/clubs/lounges in Hollywood, SF, and NY...with the laid back beachy friendliness.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis new place in MB is alreadyThis new place in MB is already finding its footing. The food is adventurous and tasty, and the manhattan I had there was one of the best I've had at a bar anywhere. Nice locale, nice atmosphere, i hope its here to stay. And seeing as its new, I'm sure it will only get better. Pretty strong offering considering they have only been open officially for about 2 weeks.
I will be going back.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Circa!Circa is such a fun spot. We were greated with a great smile, and sat right away when we checked in. You can tell they are still working out the kinks but we had an amazing experience. Pork buns are to die for! Drinks were amazing, I've never seen such a great cocktail list in the Southbay. As the evening progressed, you could tell that the bar was getting busier and busier. We'll have to come back soon and enjoy some of the lounge atmosphere. I've told all my local friends to come here, can't wait to come back and taste the rest of the menu.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
