Highly recommend this place to anyone! The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Our server Jessica was a pleasure. She had an amazing personality, and helped us have our own photoshoot considering the decor and views from the top floor was beautiful. I will definitely be going back!

Angie gave incredible service, the food was very good, and the overall experience was very enjoyable. The owner, Carlo, visited our table and said hello - which is always nice to see. If we ever get another date night out, we will definitely be back!

Not sure why but even though we were seated at a table in plain view, there were times when we felt no one was noticing us. The wait staff was very friendly and very helpful, but it was only when we asked for something. No one really ever came over to check on us. Perhaps the took the smiles and laughter from the conversation at the table to mean everything was ok, when it was not. But as I said, the waitstaff was eager to help once that help was solicited.

The food at Circe is phenomenal. The restaurant itself is modern and hip and has an overall great atmosphere. Our waiter Dave was excellent and paid extreme attention to our party and knew the menu so well. He made great recommendations and was very friendly along with the rest of the staff who were very polite and attentive. I highly recommend dining here for any occasion.

It's my choice every year to celebrate my birthday! Our food was delicious, we had a variety of seafood dishes and everyone enjoyed. the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is my mom thought the sauce on the swordfish was too "soupy." Bread pudding dessert was amazing...gelato was so tasty. Highly recommend...looking forward to trying the new location!

7 ladies brunching before our PPAC matinee show.

Our server was pleasant and very efficient getting our meals in time for us to get to the show on time.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their choices in meals.

My one big disappointment was they took the grilled polenta off the menu😂. I’m gluten free so I always ordered it.

The “ florentine” dish title should be changed.
There’s no spinach in the meal!!
You added brussel sprouts and took the spinach away. So my suggestion is to change the title. It’s confusing.

We came for dinner before a concert and didn't have time to dine at leisure. Our waitress was sensitive to this and served us a lovely meal quickly and unobtrusively. We came back after the concert for a drink. The ma'traide welcomed us back warmly and our waitress came to say hello while we sat at the bar. The bartenders were friendly and fun. We had a wonderful time at Circe!

My husband and I had a reservation for dinner before going to PPAC. This was our first visit and won’t be our last. I had the king crab and lobster caramelle. The sauce was light and just the right amount. The wine list was good and the drink menu original. The wait staff was attentive and friendly.

Food was delicious. Greeting from manager and waitstaff was excellent. Only thing I had a complaint about was that it was a cold night and it was drafty. Maybe this can't be helped in an old, charming building.

Great food and our waitress was very friendly! However, we placed an order for an appetizer first and then put in the order for our food a little while later. Our appetizer took almost 40 minutes and then our entrees came 2 or 3 minutes after our appetizer. It was not good timing at all and we were less than pleased. However the manager did make up for it with dessert on the house.

Overall, it was a good experience, good food and good staff! I would be willing to try again.

We absolutely loved it! We're not the easiest couple to please - I'm a meat-eater, and my wife is vegetarian. Nice thing about this menu was the wide variety of vegetarian options for my wife, but they were interspersed throughout the menu - she wasn't limited to a salad, or only one or two selections in a tiny "Vegetarian Section" buried at the end of the menu. Drinks were great, food was excellent, and service was superb! Made for a great dinner before the show at PPAC. We'll be back for sure!!!

Circe was great, loved the menu options. Our apps, entrees and desserts were mouth wateringly good, but the sides were a little less satisfying. Spinach desperately needed salt or garlic... some kind of flavor and the lobster mashed potatoes were so dry... more butter or cream and even some sherry would help! The death by chocolate dessert exceeded all our expectations so save room. Service was really good. Go there and experience it for yourself!

A friend and I share appetizers and small plates before going to a show at PPAC. We ordered the New England mussels as an appetizer - the serving was HUGE, the mussels were HUGE, and the milky broth was unique and delicious. We requested extra toasted bread because we just couldn't leave any.

We followed this with the Lamb Lollipops, which were meaty and tender, and the House Burrata, creamy and well-paired with a red pepper basil peperonata relish.

Considering we each had two glasses of a smooth Malbec, our $80 total tab was a great value, too!
