This is my second time dining
This is my second time dining here and it was just as good as the first. The food is always good, the service was excellent. The crowd was nice people were generally happy. I enjoyed my cocktail and everything was great. Cant wait to go back!

Went to Cafe Circa for a date
Went to Cafe Circa for a date night. My first gripe would be - the cafe was too lit! I think it would have made for a better ambiance if the lights were dimmed more. The food and wine could have been better portioned as well; but very tasty. The band that played that night wasub-par! Overall, good experience. I will definitely patronize again!

Very 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.

Great 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.

Worth 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 again

Good vibe though, as others
Good 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.

Glad I was advised to make reservations! Very popular place. Food very good. Grreat hangout spot.

Went 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.

great last minute accommodation
my 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.

Circa Delivers on Food
Our 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.

Good food - Ambience Amorphous
We 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.

Party of six
We 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.

Cafe Circa Review
The 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).

Good little surprise
Small restaurant but very nice ambience, parking not the best but it is safe we went there for our 15th anniversary the server was great there was no wait they have an after-hours up stairs outdoor area if you like to smoke the food was excellentmenu had a variety of different meals to choose from as well as appetizers food was in a good price range if you're not cheap but you don't want to over sand and have a good night this is the place to go.great after our spot to hang out at.

Cafe Circa is a small spot with lots of personality. You have the best of both worlds with the live DJ on the roof top if you want to be outside and after midnight the live band in the main dining area. The place was packed yet not congested. The drinks are great and the food just ok. Over all I give the place a thumbs up.

Cozy but noisy...
Hy husband and I wanted to get out for a night on the town and selected Cafe Circa to dine at. The food was great but better choice of music would have been nice and more options on the menu would have been nice also. Overall it was a great experience.

I'll start off by saying that this was my first time at Cafe Circa as my decision to go was based off of the great reviews from Open Table. I was quickly let down with the poor service from the receptionist as I was checking I'm for our table. She was mildly rude and not very accommodating to my party of 5 whom I had made a reservation for 2 weeks prior for my birthday.
However despite the unhappy unemployed at the front door... Our server was great! The food was even better!
I must say that the shrimp and grits were the best that I've ever tasted in my life!
I found out that most complain about the portion size. This is a lot of truth to this! For $20 the portion was small.. Whereas at Lenox Grille it's triple for 1/3 of the cost!

I always come back to Cafe Circa after trying new spots in Atlanta. It's my "go to" place.

Great food but need less plastic
Really enjoyed the food ,music and rooftop dining but didn't enjoy having plastic cups. We were told we could only have plastic cups while dining on the roof . They were the really cheap ones too. If I spend $10 on a glass of wine I want a glass not a cup you'd find at the dentist.

Great Food. . .Inconsistent Service
The food is always fantastic @ Cafe Circa. Plantains are a must have and the lamp chops are yummy. The service is hit or miss depending on who you have. Definitely worth going again despite the service.

We stumbled upon this restaurant/bar/lounge quite accidentally. Boy are we glad we did. Great food & music in a lively casual atmosphere.
