Attentive service and excellent food.
We were the first in the restaurant for brunch and were seated immediately. I appreciate how comfortable the seating is and diverse the menu. ORDER THE BRUSSELS AND BLUE!!! They don't disappoint. Food delicious, staff all smiles, attentive, and pleasant.
Very good. Food came out extremely fast our whole dinner with apps only took 45 mins! Wish the portions were a bit bigger.
Our evening at Circa met and exceeded or expectations. The setting was pleasant, the food was delicious, and the service was excellent.
Had so much fun at Circa! Great location and food was awesome. The waitstaff was super friendly and I will definitely be going again!
Food and service were excellent! Our reservation was at 8:00 pm but we did not get seated until 8:15ish (our table wasn’t ready). Def recommend!
Fantastic everything! Absolutely love the food at this restaurant.
We had a great time at Circa
Our table was ready when we arrive
Alex our server was great he went over the menu specials and was very knowledgeable of the drinks and wines
Food was excellent
My first trip to CIRCA will be the first of many to come. Food was creative, flavorful, presented well. Service was perfect, the menu was broad enough to appeal to a different tastes. We went there for lunch--table was comfortable and not crammed in with others. The noise level was moderate. We had jambalaya, caramelized brussel sprouts, and sesame crusted tuna--each had marvelous flavors.
Brunch items were prepared very well, drinks were on point, service and seating at the time of our reservation were great!
Circa had a great atmosphere and allowed us to talk through diner at a comfortable noise level. Great for weekends when the parents come to down. We recommend calamari, spinach artichoke, and the scallops.
Enjoyed our dinner very much but the highnoise level is difficult
This is a very reliable restaurant. The food and service is always good. It is pretty good in terms of noise level which makes it a go to place when having a conversation at dinner matters to you.
Great dining experience there. Good atmosphere, drinks and food. Went there in a cold Wednesday night for dinner
Everything was good; just not outstanding. Thus my 4-star rating. My only complaint is that the waitress kept coming over to get out payment when we were still talking and not ready to leave. It felt like we were being rushed out the door.
We lucked out and went during restaurant week. 3 courses for $35. Great items, not just 2 or 3 choices. I had the Brussels spouts with bacon and blue cheese and they were amazing. Second course was the short ribs - superb. Dessert was the cheesecake. My friends had the bison burger and the salmon and said they were both great
Good Service, good food, relatively loud for 5:30 dinner, but it was Saturday. In General, orientation of seating to kitchen not optimal. Several tables where going and coming from kitchen was distracting. Tight seating.
I ordered the granola crusted French toast and the burger. They were both so tasty!! Def going back
I went for brunch this past weekend, and both of the food and drinks that we got were incredible! I would definitely go back.
I continue to use circa for all of my meetings. Normally the quiet corner I like to sit in his perfect unfortunately this last time they were some extremely loud people back in that corner also. It was distracting. I will make a point of going when I’m confident there will not be a lot of people there.
The food and the service was excellent. I was disappointed that they did not give me any cake, although I had told them it was mybirthday.
Restaurant was freezing cold and staff was grumpy about us moving to a warmer table. Service was incredibly slow. Food was very good though.
Circa never disappoints. Consistently great food, and good service. We were happy to snag a Saturday night reservation last minute!
This place was recommended to me we ordered the burger which was boring and the scallops over squash was ok. The espresso ice cream and chocolate cheesecake was amazing I guess u could go for desert if anything.
Came in for restaurant week, the short rib and flounder were so delicious. I usually get the salmon salad, but decided to try something new, and boy was I glad I did so.
My wife and I went for restaurant week and the service was excellent and food was also great. I would like to come back in the summer when the patio is open.
We always enjoy Circa. The menu has a good variety of options. The food and service is great. Our only slight complaint is that the noise level inside is quite high, but we still enjoyed or evening.
New Years Brunch
Love love love their brunch. Do yourself a favor and have their avocado toast, it's so good.
The mimosas are also well priced so, if you're into boozy brunch, this is definitely a good spot to do it without breaking the bank on your drinks.
My waitress Quincy was excellent. Always attentive and very accommodating. However, the same cannot be said of the overall dining experience. Starters and main courses were brought together, resulting in a cold, soggy entree. Ambience was loud and disruptive. Felt rushed and very corporate.
I am a huge Circa fan and most recently went for an early dinner on New Year's Eve. I appreciated that they had a specials menu but also had the regular options available. The lobster bisque was incredible. The atomosphere was enjoyable--festive but you could hear your table mates perfectly.
We enjoyed dinner at Circa on the new year eve. Service was excellent. The place is not cramped at all. There were lot of food and drink options and everything we ordered was delicious. Most importantly, we got excellent service even though the place was extremely crowded.
Went with a few friends. We all got the Bison burger which was pretty good and cooked to order. Service was a little slow but wasn’t too bad. Nice restaurant and is set up well.
I always have a great time here. Excellent service, wonderful waitress who took gluten free seriously and was very aware of the menu and ingredients. She also kindly took some nice photos of our group.
Excellent service and awesome happy hour specials until 7PM. Food is always delicious as well.
Outstanding service and food was amazing! Highly recommended.
Extremely noisy though we requested a quiet table. I was hoarse with shouting at my dinner partner by the end of the meal. What a relief to get out of there.
What a delightful place to meet a friend or business associate for an unfussy lunch with good variety & choices for small or regular appetites. A great choice to become a regular!
Nice menu. Good for business lunch. Options for smaller portions and salads with substance.
Stopped for dinner at CIRCA on the way to the Kennedy center. Wonderful food& wine.
