I dropped in for lunch -- the food and service were both great. I had the blackened chicken mango salad -- it was excellent!
The food was delicious. We enjoyed it and will return.
The occasion was our anniversary dinner. This our usual place to dine if we want a great meal and great service. This time we dined with friends and the night was special. The manager and the team or servers were phenomenal. I highly recommend this place if you wanted to be treated like royalty.
Good solid food, ambiance and service. Some plates similar to Salt, which we like as well. We will go back
We had a great dinner here. Great service and literally everyone at the table thought their main course was fabulous. I would definitely go again.
Enjoy the patio on summer evenings. Great location in Clarendon.
As someone who has food allergies, I was especially impressed with how accommodating CIRCA is to provide delicious food and not having cross contamination with food allergies. Food recommendations were excellent and so was the service.
We had an outstanding Friday late lunch. Food was very good - each dish. The mushroom flatbread was a major hit.
I love going to Circa - it's my favorite neighborhood restaurant and the servers are awesome. I always look forward to eating there with friends.
The food at CIRCA is only surpassed by the friendliness and positive attitude of their staff. BB has been our server several times, and she is simply outstanding in the way she takes care of her customers. Thank you!
Circa is our 'go to' restaurant. The service is attentive and pleasant and the food is always reliably very good.
Excellent service. Great personnel. Only drank, so can't rate the food.
Delicious! The mushroom flatbread has no equal and the steak frites was perfect!
Service was fantastic!
Great meal. Same meal I had with Circa a year ago. A favorite.
Server Elise was attentive and knowledgeable
We sat outside and had an awesome server (Devin?) we had the brick chicken and a Turkey burger, cooked seasoned to perfection. Sides were good and the Brad pudding was amazing.
Excellent food & waitress was pleasant & attentive.
Not well trained staff-didn't know which patron got what dish, confused misorder of broiled chix for fried chix, didn't bring water to table upon being twice reminded.
Menu and food was good for carnivores and veg types.
Pleasant nook for party of four, pleasant servers.
I came here on Father's Day for my husband's birthday. The restaurant was nicely decorated, and the hostess was so friendly and inviting. She immediately acknowledged it was my husband's birthday from my reservation note which was very nice.
Our server was Lily. She was absolutely amazing! She was attentive and kind. She had great food suggestions and at the end of our meal she offered to take a couple pictures of us. The food was sooo good especially the granola french toast. Lily suggested the bread pudding and I will now trust her with all my food choices because that was one of the best desserts I ever had. They brought it out with a candle for my hubby's birthday which was also very nice. Oh and the cocktails were so good too!
It was a great experience, and we will definitely return again!

Terrific meal outdoors on their lovely patio. Great service. Brushetta was enough for a complete meal, but we split it for 4. Delicious. Other entrees included short ribs, steak & salmon. All great. One of the best short ribs I ever tasted.

Good was great. Service was great until it got busy and it took a while to get our check. I will definitely come back again.
Tasty food and good atmosphere! And convenient location.
Great food, impeccable service, and a overall superb experience for a birthday dinner.
Thank you for celebrating with us, Matthew! We are so happy you chose us to be a part of your special occasion. Cheers!
We had a nice quiet table, so talking (and hearing) was easy. The table was ample for the two of us, and table spacing was good. The food is good here, and priced at average with other restaurants in it's class. The service was fine even though restaurants are filling-up again. We will go back.
Wonderful service and food! Will definitely recommend to everyone and will visit again
Thank you for your rating and review, Gabrielle! We look forward to hosting you again, soon!
Amazing as always. Perfect brunch spot!
Nice open area and a limited but interesting menu. Good for conversation and social distance. Friendly, courteous, efficient staff. One of my "go-to" places when I meet friends in Clarendon.

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!

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.
