I was disappointed because you didn’t have both the food I ordered (mussels) or aperol for a spritz. Food was great but that was disappointing

Wonderful experience with son and husband on Mother’s Day. Terrific waitress, delicious food and lively atmosphere. Missed a few items featured online but no longer on the menu but found the menu to be varied and the quality of food delicious. Our waitress was professional and very pleasant and checked in regularly to make sure we were happy. I’ll definitely return again when we visit Providence.

My husband and I ate here on Sunday for brunch. Easy to find, parking a little more difficult to find but we managed a spot on the street. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was very good and portions not too big, just enough. Cocktails were tasty. Liked the vibe, had a DJ playing music which we really liked. Can’t believe we had never been here before but we will be back.

Server was wonderful. However I think you can find far better brunch options in Providence for less than 90.00/2 people. Simply not worth the price.

There was hair on my plate though I had already eaten the food on the plate... the hair was moist and in the butter on the plate definitely not mine.

It's been over a year since I was able to travel to RI for dinner. I missed the food scene so much during quarantine, and anytime I would venture out to dinner, I wanted to pick a spot in Providence! It was well worth the wait. We enjoyed the two specials - pork chop and salmon. Both meals did not disappoint - delicious accompaniments - goat cheese mashed potatoes to go with the pork and risotto to go with the salmon. The deviled eggs with beet slaw was delicious. Finished off our meals with Passion Fruit sorbet and a Espresso/Hazelnut Gelato. So happy to be able to head back to my favorite spot!

My husband & I had dinner, we both picked from the “specials”, he had seared scallops over crab risotto & I had the filet mignon with portobello,peppers, Demi glacé & truffle mashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious!!! Great services from Allie and the place is pretty with great atmosphere. A bit pricey but food was amazing! Thanks for wonderful dinner, we’ll be back for sure!

Anniversary dinner at a new restaurant for us turned out great. Nice atmosphere good wine list and excellent food. Our Waiter was well informed and very attentive without being intrusive. My wife raved about her Atlantic Salmon over a bed of Lobster mashed potatoes with big chunks of lobster. I had a steak with pommes frites that was delicious and had everyone around us commenting on the presentation. The dish looked as good as it tasted. We had a wonderful time and will be back.

Circe-Providence. Dinner for 4 of us on a Tuesday evening. Food was awesome from beginning to end: appetizers and entrees. Been there twice in the past 2 weeks, servers were also very good. Very attentive, good suggestions, want to be as accommodating as possible. TOP NOTCH DINING in Providence, RI!

Food was hit or miss. Water glasses were not clean, but server made up for it by offering bottled water and bar glasses. Noise level is ear popping. It felt more like a club than a restaurant. Was not a pleasant experience, but this may just be a younger club going crowd

Pre-pandemic, this was one of our favorite restaurants. It was great to see that the quality and service are of the same high caliber now. All safety precautions were followed but that in no way diminished the overall experience.

Our waiter was exceptional which made the night enjoyable. If not for his attention to our table, our review would be much different. While the food was quite good (we shared the margherita pizza & ahi tuna entree) the meal wasn’t necessarily enjoyable because of the noise level. We nearly had to shout at one another to be heard. The bar area, even with an ongoing pandemic, was crowded and loud. For the price of our meal, I’d expect a bit more decorum amongst the clientele. Circee feels like it can’t make up its mind to be a neighborhood bar or an upscale eatery.

Walked in and first thing I notice is a huge crowd congregated near the door with NO masks in sight. The hostess kept pulling her mask down to speak to customers which defeats the purpose of the mask. More people walked in ZERO masks in sight and no one in management reprimanded them. It felt as if we weren’t in a pandemic at all. Our server kept putting her mask down to speak with us. And to top it all off I made the reservation for 915 and we had to wait 30 minutes for horrible service. I wouldn’t be surprised if the department of health paid this place a visit.

Everything was made perfectly, and although a bit higher on the price end, which we knew going in, definitely worth it.

Drinks were made well and tasted great, nice low light vibe.

Service was excellent start to finish.
