The creative food and beautiful presentation are wonderful. I took a star off for ambience because of the noise. The food and service make up for it though. There is a reason there is never an empty seat at this restaurant.

Food was great! And our server, Matt, was outstanding!! Place is very small, therefore difficult to get a reservation. But well worth the many attempts.

Food selection is wonderful
Both meatloaf and lamb burger are outstanding comfort food.
Gets a little noisy when all seats are full. No complaint just need
to be aware it has a vibrant food and bar scene. Yeah for
Chad and crew!

Love This Place!
We were lucky to find this neighborhood gem. Circa 1918 doesn't fit into many of the listed categories but it is a special dining experience all it's own. The food is innovative, delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is calm and pleasant. They really care about your dining experience.

Always a Treat!
When my girlfriend was visiting she, lets go back to 1918 -- I'm dying to have the lamb burger! She wasn't disappointed. My,husband got the bison meatloaf! I had soup and salad, yummy! Service was great. So don't hesitate to try this place .

We wanted something different and had seen the front while driving by. Asked for a seat out of the mainstream since we were celebrating out anniversary. Food and service were fantastic. Small venue but we liked the atmosphere. If the bar is active, it can get a little noisy, but the food will distract you. We had a nice table for two by the front window. We will definitely be back.

The intimate but lively atmosphere was a perfect backdrop for the most delicious meal I've had since moving from the Boston area. Unique cocktail offerings, presentation of the just right portions and personal service completed an excellent meal!

Fantastic, as usual!
Love, love, love this place. It's small, intimate, but lively! Service is exceptional. Appetizers, entrees, and drinks were all fantastic. Salmon tartar...delicious! Bison meatloaf, you'll only want this vs any other meatloaf. Crabcake--almost no stuffing to it! Cannot get any better.

No Room for Dessert
Someone in cyberspace already said it best: "I forgot I was in Newport News." Yes, I know, certain other Peninsula venues like 99 Main or the long-ago defunct Fire and Ice (remember that one?) may have already made strides in the direction of state-of-the-culinary-art dining adventure, but without the chic, physically tight fit you'll find here. I was told that this is the resurrection of Create Bistro down the street, brought low by a kitchen fire. But the sardine-can seating there was ironically not mitigated by the generous spread of windows in front, a vestige of the building's history as a b'fast chain. No, Circa 18 resembles many a long, narrow tunnel in Manhattan or DC, serving food that is frightfully delicious & beautiful!

The food was wonderful and so was the service. This was our third time there and it will not be our last.

Another delicious meal
We don't get to go to Circa often, but when we do, it never disappoints! We each got different apps and entrees and they were all amazing. I think I loved my husbands seafood pasta even more than my salmon. Service was fantastic and $5 wine night made it a memorable evening!

True dining experience
Amazing menu! Lamb burger was cooked perfectly. Candied bacon adds perfect touch. Really enjoyed tiger prawns and grits. Highly recommend if you are looking for fine dining in Newport News.

$ well spent
We don't go out to eat often, but when we do, we like to eat something we can't or won't make at home. Circa 1918 never disappoints! Fantastic food, good wine and a knowledgeable and competent wait staff. Just about my favorite in the area. Be sure to make reservations....very small dinning room and bar area.

Great Place For Date Night
We love this restaurant! Everything we have eaten has been good. The staff is friendly and attentive.
On a recent visit we had the tiger prawn appetizer - loved the grits. The pork-belly appetizer was really rich and delicious also.
We had the beef filet with sweet potato gratin and the salmon. They were both cooked perfectly and the gratin and sauce that came with the beef were outstanding.
