Waitress was amazing! She was also the bartender and had an extensive knowledge about the menu. Great food, great drinks, couldn’t ask for a better Saturday brunch spot.
Great outdoor patio with a solid roof and heaters, perfect for the rain. Delicious food, especially the brussels sprouts and tuna.
Circa is always great!! No surprises!!! Food is excellent! We love the tuna poke, the calamari. The Moscow mule is fabulous!!! Service is profesional and friendly. They keep good control over reduced occupancy!!! Well done!
Would 1000% recommend patio area for spring and summer
Incredible food, location, service and setting. Good menu items and wine selection.
The sauce with the brick chicken dish was divine!
This Place is just fantastic. The people that work there are always so nice and really can never do enough for you.
loved this place in a great location great food and the weather when i was there was perfect so we sat outside.
We were pleased to find a brunch spot last minute. The service was excellent and the food was delicious! It was lovely sitting outside on a spring day enjoying good food and good service!
My King wanted something different, we had to extra time to spare and with last minute brunch reservations during COVID was challenging. However, CIRCA, had space, yes 👍. We sat outside, cover patio with heaters. It was nice.
The service was easy, the drinks was really NICE [PURPLE RAIN] easy on the eyes and pallet. The food was hot, seasoned nicely check was on time.
Everyone had good COVID practice, to include the quest. King and I would return.
The food and service were great but not quite the ambiance we expected. It’s right next to the metro station exit at a busy intersection in the GW area.
Ate lunch at Circa after taking a tour of GW. Tee and the other restaurant staff were gracious, attentive and accommodating. I don’t eat any sugar or flour and Tee helped me navigate the menu to make choices that fit my plan (blackened salmon with cauliflower mash and kale). My husband and son do not have any food restrictions and they also enjoyed the food. My son had the the bread pudding for dessert and said it was decadent and delicious!!! Tee gave us recommendations of things to do while we were in DC (I asked). I appreciated the hospitality and warm environment.
Visiting from Connecticut. Enjoyed lunch so much that we went back the next day. Great service and great food.
Seated immediately, given paper menu, very efficient n courteous server...... food excellent!
Been there many times and always love the outdoors seating especially during pandemic and covid. Services is great and staff is lovely. Will always come back, thanks for been in business during a difficult years and covid!
Outside area covered with great heaters! Plenty of space between tables, quick friendly service for lunch and the food was very fresh tasting.
First time for having dinner there. Great service as always and very good food. Found the music or noise in their outer patio bothersome.
My friends and I came to try The New Crab cakes Entree was amazing we have some cocktails there's new one Tropic like it's Hot, Pineapple Jalapeño Faux Rita with Tequila is spicy very tasty our server was Great
Great place. Well distanced.
Ben and Molly were the best servers! Great food and drinks
Just decent. Not worth going a second time.
Went for Easter Brunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff was professional and friendly. We were able to eat outside under a tent and enjoyed safe distancing from other diners.
Everything was AMAZING! The food, the service, the atmosphere and the price. Would definitely recommend.
Always a good place to go. Get the fried chicken sandwich or the turkey burger...delicious. Cocktails are great and the staff is always super friendly. I love CIRCA
Highly recommend! Great service and Great food in a convenient location.
My husband and I ordered a few different things to try. Everything was great but we really enjoyed the flatbread and the filet sliders. We also had cocktails, my husband really liked the blackberry margarita. Service was great too, our server was attentive without being clingy and the bruschetta she suggested was delicious. Will definitely visit again the next time we visit DC.
My go to spot when I want reliable good food and great cocktails. The service is always attentive and friendly.
I love this restaurant. The staff is amazing, kind, and quick. The outdoor seating area is perfect for covid distanced eating. The drinks and desserts are wonderful. Some of the entrees have smaller portions than I would expect for the amount I’m paying but everything tastes excellent.
Going to Circa is always a treat! Service was amazing, before and during our meal. Will continue going back!
Dope dope dope spot sitting outside.
We stopped in for dinner at CIRCA and had a great meal. Service was excellent and their patio dinning was a nice option in warm weather.
Food was quick and tasty, our server was beyond polite and friendly. Highly recommend our experience!
Went for date night with my fiancée. Ordered jambalaya pasta and steak frites with Brussels. Steak and Brussels were tasty, pasta was okay- would not order again. Great service great ambiance. Would re
Great food and great drinks in a prime location! If you want to have a nice Saturday or Sunday brunch consider Circa.
This is near my job and I have been several times. This time was no different. The food was out in just a short time, fresh and hot. Service was good as well. I will definitely be returning.
Food is amazing!!
Circa continues to be an oasis for good food and service in a safe way vis a vis the virus.
We went to sit outside but the "music " from the Metro made it unpleasant. Food was great!
