We all agree that this was the best meal we have ever had!
Had an amazing experience here and definitely will be going back!
Everything was beyond delicious, cozy table and attentive service. A perfect date night.
Hands down this establishment had the best food and service! They are passionate about their restaurant and the quality they put out! Even more important they are passionate about their customers!
Great food. It was a little crowded as it was New Years so it was expected. The food came out in a timely manner and was cooked as expected and was very flavorful.
Everything was perfect. Appropriately attentive service, excellent food, and great wine selections. We can’t wait to dine here again.
High end food in a cozy brasserie setting. Ca 1918 was a no brainer for New Years Eve 2020 even though we had to drive more than we typically do for dinner. Ate at the bar, the officiants were suitably attentive, and perfectly discreet. Dishes are finely crafted and the perfect size; as we prefer, we left with a little bit of room left. Opened up with the obligatory bubbly; followed-up with a fun bacon infused bourbon cocktail. Stayed away from the wines on account of the drive, the neighbors seemed totally pleased. The Seared Tuna was an ideal combination of seared and raw, pleasantly spicy. The filet and lobster tail matched perfectly. The deconstructed orange tart had many takers, not too sweet, not too tart, an original!
Our server Kim was so welcoming and made me feel so comfortable! I was beyond impressed with the food and atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back!
Food is always great and the service is even better!!!
Excellent dinner. Informal but excellent service.
Kip took great care of us! Very knowledgeable about the menu and their specials. Food was wonderful, highly recommend the scallops and swordfish. We will most certainly be back when in the area!
We made reservations for Christmas Eve dinner. We have eaten here a few times and I can honestly say that every time it has been a delicious and wonderful experience. This place had never disappointed us. I love the casual feel and the attention to detail all of the staff have towards an amazing culinary experience. If you are a foodie and haven’t tried this gem, you’re seriously missing out.
Great restaurant.....this was our first time and we were amazed. Service and food were both over the top.
Great waiter who answered questions and explained food and drink items. Great service and wonderful food!
We were seated by the window with a view of Warwick Blvd. The outside was clean and the inside warm and inviting.
The food was delicious and served with care. The waitstaff reminded me of europe a little as they did not hover and made it an outstanding experience.
The food was a little pricey but comparable to the taste. We will return as it will be a treat for me and my wife. I will recommend to all.
Our first visit. Such a quiet and laid back atmosphere. All staff were attentive and knowledgeable. I asked a million questions and they never got frustrated. Staff even found a wine that worked for all us with different likes in wine. Had the octopus app and duck breast dinner. Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fun place! Good food!
The service is wonderful. The drinks are well prepared, and the food is outstanding with interesting flavors that complement one another.
Fabulous experience! Delicious duck breast, huge crab cake, yummy shaved brussel sprout salad and cheesecake with an excellent bottle of red wine from WA! Impressed with the fresh ingredients, creative preparation and unique presentation. Friendly servers made it even more special. So happy to see this caliber of food available in Newport News!
On point as always. Great food. Great service.
Always delicious and the service, and attention to detail, is the best.
The restaurant is very cozy. My husband and I like the layout and had a nice conversation with the couple next to us. I had the shaved Brussel sprout salad and it was delicious. My husband loved the bison meatloaf. We will definitely eat here again.
Great food and great service! Very nice staff and the atmosphere has a nice modern and youthful vibe, but it's a little too cozy if you're looking for a quiet date-night. Overall, I think the food and service outweigh the other...
Absolutely the best restaurant in Newport News!!! My wife and I look for every excuse to go there and eat. Kip and all the staff are hands down the best around!!!
Absolutely fabulous food and service! My favorite restaurant in the Hampton Roads area for fun and business! Thank you Kipp!!!!! ❤️
Top tier restaurant. Quality ingredients. Menu was extremely creative, and really showed off our local fare.
Everything was great!!!!!!!!
Our new favorite! Can’t wait to come back!!
What a great place!
My husband and I enjoyed a fresh and delicious meal. The wine selection was superb and our desserts were lovely.
great little bistro, food as exceptional and the service was white glove- we will be back!!
Grand food & service
Love this restaurant! Food is always good. Service is always wonderful!
Excellent food and service, very accommodating for dietary restrictions, including for a vegan diner!
Such a gem- always have an outstanding time with excellent food and service at Circa!
The rare place that is both a neighborhood hangout and a destination point. It has never, ever disappointed us and we always leave with a smile.
My husband and I went to Circa 1918, for the first time, in celebration of my husband's birthday. We had tickets for a show later that evening so I had a reservation. Upon arrival, we were seated right away. Paul, our waiter, was attentive and friendly. We shared an appetizer and ordered drinks. As an entre, my husband ordered the sword fish and I had the salmon. Both meals came out hot and were delicious. We recommend Circa 1918 and will visit again. Michelle Maxwell
Sat at the bar and the bartender Joey was friendly, attentive and made a mean cocktail! Will definitely be back!
I LOVE this place. However, we were a bit disappointed on this visit. We were promptly seated and asked if we wanted water, still or sparkling and opted for sparkling. They never told us there was going to be a charge (we would have taken still). Then our server went on to serve everyone else but us. We didn't get our wine order in so we couldn't even sit there and drink a glass of wine while waiting on him. There was a large party that needed his attention, but that is the point of making a reservation! They knew they would have the large party and should have had more staff.
Superb in all respects, as usual
