This is a nice upscale restaurant with great food and a nice variety of options. The service was very good. Some nice craft cocktails are available as well. We had a party of five and there was no trouble accommodating us.

Great food options and there's a discount for ordering specials when you are there before going to the Theater! We had Cider Brined Porkchops and Short Ribs. Great salads too.

I remember when this venue used to be down City Diner. The Ambiance is great although a couple of Rowdy people at the bar we're a little disruptive. The food was really delicious although a tad too pricey. I would go back again for a special occasion. Our waitress Audra was awesome she was very accommodating Pleasant and knowledgeable. Kydos to the person who hired her

A lovely space. The brunch offerings were interesting, beautifully plated, and tasty. I had to ask for a spoon for my coffee with cream and sugar. Parking is not straightforward. Open table said that there was a valet but that was not the case on a Sunday at 10AM. The adjacent garage is closed on the weekends. I’m sure this isn’t an issue for locals. But I was visiting so it was a bit frustrating.

The lamb lollipops 10/10. Seasalt fries 10/10. Burrata 9/10. Calamari 9/10. Burger was 6/10. The brioche bun killed it, too overpowering. Banana bread pudding 9/10.

Pretty from the road and nice vibe but we were seated in the near corner by the door and the bar. The family next to us asked to be moved to another table away from the door bc they were cold from the door opening to the street every time someone came I'm or left. The service was well below oar but the staff was at least nice. Older woman who was the hostess told my daughter she would bring a spoon but completely forgot. Our waiter, Sam, was very nice but confused and didn't get to check on us more than once during our stay. He was a nice guy though. The dinner was brought to our table by another young lady who had to ask what each of us had. Extremely disorganized. The food was fine but definitely not memorable. Very sparse dessert offerings so he convinced us to get death by chocolate which was not so great. Overall, average place and not at all classy or good at service. We won't be running back anytime soon.

Always a pleasure to dine at Circe. The staff remember their customers and welcome them. The menu choices offer a variety of selections, often seasonal, in the right proportions. The wine list was simple, well thought out to compliment the food.

The experience would have been totally different had we been able to hear each other talk. We had no idea that at 10:15 music would be blaring and our table would be directly below the DJ. Food was good – not phenomenal – and overpriced for what you got.

It's all about the details and those were neglected ... perhaps because of the time of night we were there? Waters were never refilled during our stay with definite lapses in checking in on how we were doing in between apps/dinner/dessert.

To top it all off, it was a birthday celebration which I had called earlier to share & request that a special dessert be brought over. Our waiter had no idea about the request.

Had heard good things about this restaurant and was very disappointed. It was a contender for dinner after graduation and will be taken off the list as a result. I think this location is better suited for drinks & socializing after work (which I definitely would do) rather than dinner with family.

We went to Circe for my fiancé’s birthday and our dinner was delicious. I had the chicken and the risotto was amazing, I would highly recommend it. We also tried the deviled eggs and cheese board. I tried a drink recommended by our server and it was very tasty. Everything was wonderfully prepared.

They tried to sit us at a very busy area, when we asked for a different table we were treated with attitude all night. Been there before & they couldn’t have been nicer. Last night was NOT what we expected!!!

Went to dinner during restaurant week. They were packed and trying to keep up with reservations. We sat 29-25 min past our res time. In my opinion, the service was not as good as usual, probably due to how busy they were.

Food was great! Can’t wait to go back for more lamb lollipops. Service was also fast and effective. The only down side was that the ambient noise made it hard to have a romantic night.

We visited for restaurant week and had a really pleasant experience. The Crab and Lobster Caramelle was cooked perfectly! And I really enjoyed the White Chocolate Pumpkin Creme Brûlée! The tables are a bit close to each other for my liking but the remainder of our experience was great!

We went to Circe for a pre-theater dinner, and it happened to be Providence Restaurant week so we took advantage of the price-fixe menu. The roasted beet salad was delicious, with pomegranate seeds and a very light vinaigrette that didn’t overpower the greens. Our waitress also recommended the grilled oysters which were delicious. The garlic butter was also great for dipping. I ordered the grilled salmon with corn salsa and my husband had the short rib served with risotto and asparagus. Both were excellent. I had the winter sorbets, including pear sorbet and champagne granita. It was really refreshing. My husband had an Apple torte made with puff pastry and served with vanilla sorbet. Really delicious. Our waitress gave us good advice and great service. We went back after the show to pick up the car and the bar was still hopping! Altogether a wonderful experience and walking distance to PPAC!
