    Inconsistent inattentive server after restaurant got busy. Waited 20 minutes for her to come back to table to see if we were done and wanted dessert While waiting on tables on either side of us first. We declined and left.

    We went here for brunch on Mother's Day - we were seated on the top floor in a corner that was very dark and right below a speaker, so very loud and hard to hear each other. The food was good but the ambience was off - we still had a good time and would consider going back again with different circumstances

    Everything was perfect, with the exception of the music. They had a DJ playing music. The music was too loud for a Mother’s Day Brunch. It caused people to have to talk louder. The noise level was unpleasant.

    I stopped by for brunch after having heard about it for a long time. Apparently Circe is both a great restaurant and a very hip night spot too. I had some simple salmon toast with a glass of wine. Lovely!

    Our first time at Circe, and we were very happy! We came to visit our friend who was there DJing and setting the music vibe. The service was a bit slow at first, but our waitress did a great job, she was very busy and handled the crowd well. There was a large birthday, that kept growing, and she handled everything well. We shared a mushroom Bolognese that was delicious! The drinks were yummy too, we will definitely return!

    The food was good and priced fairly however, the “club feel” atmosphere of this restaurant isn’t what I expected. I wouldn’t recommend if you are looking for true fine dining type of experience or if you are looking for somewhere to bring your parents. Also, the drink I ordered was not the best. Overall an okay restaurant but not somewhere I would make a point to visit again.

    Food was fresh, but lacked any counterbalance in flavor (salt to sweet, sweet to sour, etc.) or textures to make it truly interesting. Our server was very friendly and accommodating, but failed to inform us that the special we ordered was about 4 times the price of anything else on the menu! Lesson learned. Overall ok, but in a city with so much great food, I would not go back.

    We had an overall excellent time. My steak initially came out seriously overdone but our server dealt with it immediately and it got replaced with one that was properly cooked. The food was excellent and our server was terrific. The restaurant comped a number of the items on the bill to compensate for the steak fiasco. We would definitely go back again.

    Food was terrific. Kinda of a retro menu duck steak chicken but well done. Brussels sprouts were perfect as were the truffle garlic fries. Waiter was very accomodating. He worked hard to service all of his tables well. Appreciate his effort. As we know restaurants ate having a hard time finding good employers. He did a fine job.

    It was actually our first time at the restaurant, and we'd definitely return. Sam was our server, and he was just charming and attentive. He made a few suggestions of specials and we ended up with a delicious scallop special that we shared, and the charcuterie was just delicious and plentiful. When he came by to suggest dessert, we explained that we thought we'd hold off on the dessert until later and return after the show at PPAC. He suggested if we did to be sure to try the espresso martini! We returned and DID indeed enjoy a delicious espresso martini! So good that we had to have a second! We will be back without a doubt!

    Food and drinks were excellent. The service was sub par. We weren’t greeted when we walked in, people were standing around talking and we stood there for 5 minutes before anyone welcomed us in. We waited at the bar and ordered a drink since there was a wait even though we had a reservation. Then when our table was ready we hadn’t yet cashed out at the bar (we had been waiting to cash out but the bar was busy) and the hostess seemed annoyed with us. The inside of the restaurant has a nice but it’s very dark, you can barely see what you’re eating. Our waitress was OK, but she could have checked in on us more as there were times we were waiting a bit to order more drinks. With all of the great places in Providence to get dinner I don’t know that I would go back. Again the food was very good but for what we paid the service was lousy.

    Great spot before PPAC. Eclectic menu- they could stand to add a few more basic items. Good service although the waiter got super busy and our service got a bit slow. He definitely had too many tables at once. As a former server- that is a management issue! Overall- great atmosphere and food and service were good. I’ve gone before, and I will go again

    Service was outstanding! Given how busy it was and the food service industry still trying to bounce back from recent restrictions, both the kitchen (which we could see from where we were sitting) and wait staff moved like an NBA playoff team that knows how to move the basketball and pace in their efforts to win. They did not skip a beat given how demanding it was at peak service. So on point. The food was fantastic. The only exception to this - minor as it is - was the vinaigrette that was put on top of the bruschetta - was too confusing in flavors. Best to keep it fresh and simple given the wonderful full flavors that did visit during the main course. Overall just a wonderful experience.
