In Savannah we were having difficulty finding a place that was not loud, this fit the bill. They had a special of red snapper which rivaled the snapper I had in Belgium. Unfortunately my wife's veal while very tasty was room temperature. After 3 days of meals being sent back and not eating our meals at the same time we let the server know and my wife tried to eat the veal but it just didn't cut it The server let the manager know who did not charge us for the meal and was very gracious and apologetic. It is a shame as both the snapper and veal tasted wonderful. I was satisfied also with the response for something that did not go correctly.

Very dated menu, which I sort of expected given the restaurant’s name, but would have liked updated bistro food. Mains were tepid had to go back and wait again for their replacements.

We love this restaurant but this time it was off. Our waiter told us they were down a chef and the food reflected that.

Been going to Circa for five years. My meal came out by a server who plunked it Down in front of us and left. Our waitress never came over to check on us. I ran out of water. My half rack of lamb chops consisted of two and a half chops and a fourth bone with no meat. This cost us 38.00 for a pitiful plate of lamb chops. The managers solution was to offer a free dessert which we never eat. He wouldn't even come to our table to talk to us. He finally did after we told the waitress we were not pleased with his solution. His attitude was we are wrong and they are right. To top it off we had the discusting smell of cigarette smoke the entire time. Very disappointed with the whole night.

Lets just say, I have never had a bad experience at Circa. Its very good and very authentic and if you want a good meal then this is the place to go. It might be pricey but its worth every dollar. I had a memorable experience there and it was fairly well priced. That is why I will return many different times. Overall, I highly recommend this place. Enough said. I will add that I always sit downstairs which makes it a little better each time.

Steak was burnt and we never received our vegetables. Very expensive for what little we received.
Will not go back.

This was our first visit to Circa 1875. It had been highly recommended by friends. It was a special occasion (Valentine Dinner). Our waitress was exceptional. She was friendly and knowledgeable regarding the specials and menu. However, we did wait quite a long time for our entrees as well as the dessert that we shared. The restaurant was crowded and it seemed that the tables were very close together. I don't know if this was normal or due to the holiday, but it created a rather noisy environment and was not as cozy or romantic as hoped. The food was very good. Our appetizer (Coquilles St. Jacque) was exceptional. My entrée was Monk Fish and I would definitely order it again. My husband ordered the Duck entrée and was not too happy as it was tough & chewy. The beet salad was good, although we have had better. We had a chocolate cake dessert that was very good and surprisingly light. All in all, a very nice dinner and, as we are locals, we will try it again on a regular night and not a holiday.

Quite traditional French cuisine plus some locally inspired dishes. Presentation of the food is okay - but everyone who knows French food also knows that it is less about the presenation (that's an American thing) but more about the taste and the ingredients.

Liked the wine list, plus the server made great recommendations. They definetely know their job better than at similar ranked places like the The Olde Pink House or The Grey when it Comes to Service and skills/ knowledge with the service staff. Prices average among these type of restaurants in Savannah.

For those reasons, if you go there or when I return (I will!) go for the French dishes from starter to entree and Dessert. Don't order anything with chicken or duck, get those at a southern restaurant in the city. Don't order US or NZ wines, but ask the waiter for French wine recommendations accompanying your food.

The food is always flawless. The waitstaff is perfection. For a quiet and romantic spot, ask to sit downstairs. If you are looking for classic French bistro food, look no farther.

This was a spectacular place to eat. Excellent food, excellent food, and very attentive staff. If you want to impress a date or a significant other take them to this restaurant. There is also a bar area that seemed great and they have spectacular desserts

Authentic Paris Bistro/Cafe. Many couples relaxing and enjoying dinners. Our service was wonderful and our server made our evening. A warm, cozy restaurant that transports you to Europe. The brook trout was delicious and we followed it with a fabulous lavendar Cream brule. Wonderful!

Overall it was good. Servers were very friendly and attentive. Appetizers and salads were very good. Entrees were ok (lamb chops) (yellowfin tuna with pesto and ratatouille...an odd combination). Desserts were great..creme brûlée and beignets. Great music and very romantic; I loved the atmosphere. We dined downstairs in wine cellar. I liked upstairs better, but it’s a little noisier with bar next door. I would definitely go again!

We enjoyed a beautiful variety of French wines as well as a four coarse meal that was equally bright and delicious. Visually lovely the interior design catches your eye and inspire conversation. Our wait staff was stellar and very knowledgeable. Great experience

We love this place! Dinner and service were excellent, as usual. We were going to the symphony after, and did not feel rushed at all even though we only had about an hour and fifteen minutes from the time we entered. We will be back for certain!
