Dining with friends
I hadn't been here in a few years and was not disappointed. I had the salmon salad for lunch and it was delicious. They provided a birthday surprise dessert for my guest, which was very thoughtful. I will definitely return!
Had lunch outside. Very pleasant space. Good service. Salad was fresh with nice range of ingredients.
Circa is great. The food is delicious, and the service was attentive. There is covered seating outside, and the tables all had plenty of space between them.
Thank you for trusting us to provide you with an outstanding dining experience, Joe! We look forward to hosting you in the future.
We always love Circa and our dinner last night was no exception. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious.

Great service and good food and drinks! Outdoor patio is dog friendly!
Great place to eat with family or friends. A variety of selections on the menu.

All the staff is wonderful!

Sat outside. We were never rushed. Enjoyed drinks, then had dinner. Salads were amazing. Our waiter took care of us but was never intrusive. Food was delicious and appropriately priced. A fun place to get together with friends.
The server was outstanding. We stayed for a long time and did not have drinks. She didn't rush us and was always courteous and efficient. We left her a big tip and hope she got it.
Circa is reliable for good food, efficient and friendly service, and acceptable value.
Wonderful service and food!
we all enjoyed the brunch entrees...the huevos rancheros were particularly good!
Everything was good as always. We really enjoyed the shaded outside seating.
The food and service was great!
Overall the dining experience was very good. We sat outside which is near a metro station so trains were very loud. The food was good as always.
We went for brunch and were sitting outside with my friend's dog. The weather turned on us, and got cold and windy which made the experience a little harder to enjoy. The food, service, and drinks were good. Just wish we didn't have to feel like we had to rush out quickly.
Great location and atmosphere. Waiters were friendly and extremely helpful
Great food, Great outdoor table with a reservation. Nice place for a brunch/lunch!
As always, excellent food and great service. The patio worked fine -- it was a windy day but the overhead heaters took the chill out of the air.
Our servers were very nice. We stayed a long time for lunch as we had not seen each other in over a year, but the servers were very attentive and friendly.
Convenient location. A bit noisy outside due to metro. Food ok.
Mother's day brunch with the family. Reservations made via OpenTable. Parking in the garage is a must or you will be towed. Street parking during weekend is scarce. Restricted to Sunday Brunch menu from 11-3pm.
Place - Very nice; decor and layout is good; garage is just across the street on N. Garfield; outdoor seating layout is well done.
Service - Promptly seated and our server was good; gave a recap of all the orders from her notepad. She checked on us from time to time.
Food - A few areas to improve. Calamari - too skimpy in serving size for $13.50 - hard pass if ever I come back.
Southern Chicken Benedict $14.50 - Chicken was a tad bigger than McDo nuggets on two very dry "homemade biscuits". This came with 2 eggs and breakfast fries. Definitely something the Chef should review for this price point. I don't mind paying for quality but this one should be avoided.
Chicken Bulgogi Fried Rice - It was ok from two of my family members. Nothing special. The same with the breakfast sandwhich and market salad with grilled shrimp.
Hope this gives some insight to management and to future patrons.
Went for brunch on Mothers Day. Both the food and service were outstanding. Great menu options and everything everyone ordered was delicious.
Need more vegetarian options.
Just too noisy to be enjoyed.
It was Cinco de Mayo so it was crowded. After an hour we finally had our order taken. It was very loud with a drunk group sitting by us. Not an enjoyable space.
Our go to place. Always good. Very consistent throughout the years. Great atmosphere too!
Food was good, service wasn't great and they didn't pay attention to my birthday note which is disappointing
We went there for brunch. Everything was delicious, the service was spot-on, will definitely be back.
It was okay— not fantastic.
Came here for Brunch. The food was great and the mimosas were plentiful!! The servers were friendly and patient, especially since we had a couple late comers for our reservation. I will definitely come back here.
Staff was friendly. They took good precautions to be safe during Covid. Food came out very fast. I mentioned to the waitress that my friend and I were going to split the entree and they automatically split it and brought it out in two different plates. I also appreciated that they didn’t push us out. They let my friend and I stay and catch up for a bit.
The food was delicious and the restaurant was nicely decorated.
Great food for a great price. Nice service as well. Will be back
This restaurant in consistent with solid food! They also have an amazing outdoor space in Clarendon
