    Not worth it, I had to spit my food out, cabbage was overly salted and the risotto had way too much cream.

    The food was fantastic. It just took a very long time to order, get served. We had to work hard to order a second bottle of wine. Of course there is a shortage of help everywhere, but this was an especially inattentive server

    This was our first time at Circe and we loved it! Our server Dave was very personable and helpful. My scallops were done perfectly and my husband loved his pumpkin gnocchi. We can't wait to dine there again.

    Dinner was a lovely experience. That said, this is not a restaurant that has thought beyond traditional menu items that feature animal based proteins (meat, poultry, fish, shellfish). The Vegetarian options were carb heavy, pasta based (gnocchi and fettuccine) and if you seek Vegan or need GF, you are down to a salad and a plate of side orders.

    My wife and I have been looking to try Circe for sometime. We finally decided to try it for her birthday, and we are glad we did. Everything about the experience was quality. The food, service and setting were as good, if not better, as any restaurant we have tried in Providence. We will be returning.

    We had a great time celebrating our daughter’s 11th birthday. The food was great and the waitress was very friendly. Unfortunately, we forgot our left over bag at the restaurant. It was too late to turn back since we live in Worcester, MA. :(

    The restaurant has an excellent location and the interior is very stunning. However the food was not all that great and could be improved. We tried starting with the wagyu tacos, and unfortunately, that was the ONE item that they were out of, according to our waiter. Nevertheless, we ordered the bruschetta which was rather good. For dinner, I ordered the Maine lobster risotto which was surprising with the avocado ice cream which made for a nice contrast between the hot risotto and the cold ice cream. However, the risotto itself was rather bland and could have used more seasoning. My husband ordered the angus meatloaf and we both found it disappointing. Here too, the meat itself was real boring and could have used some veggies mixed in. The truffle mash potatoes were just as dull and the only saving grace were the prosciutto wrapped asparagus. We were expecting more and got less, unfortunately.

    The setting is very nice but not stuffy. Cocktails were good, wine was delicious, and our server, Vinny, couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful. We liked all the food we had, especially the affagaddo for dessert. Another thing that impressed me was when our mains were served we didn’t have silverware. They’d been taken with our starter dishes. But within seconds another server noticed and grabbed us silverware. Impressive that he was watching tables that weren’t in his section!

    We were a little disappointed about a few things. The waitress did not offer us bread with our water once we sat down. She forgot my salad and brought my main meal, so my partner and I couldn't eat our main course together. She didn't offer fresh ground pepper for my salad either. We ordered a bottle of wine and it didn't come in a cooling container for the table. I realize it might have been a busy night (a Tuesday!) but these little things would have made the meal and service more enjoyable. Besides, the last time we were there, all of these details were taken care of without us having to ask for them.

    Food and service were superbe. Enjoyed the crushed ice condiment served with the oysters, very nice and unexpected. The salad my wife had was exceptional. For entrees, my wife had the salmon served on the lobster mash potatoes also delicious; the mash potatoes were outstanding; I had the seared scallops served with lobster ravioli and roasted tomatoes, very tasty, well thought out, great flavor palette, the flavors were well-balanced; perfect. It was a little loud, not bad, a bit of a distraction. We were seated on the balcony; which was private. It's a little claustrophobic up there due to the ceiling height. The lack of art on the dark colored walls enhances this feeling; a couple of long narrow mirrors would also help open up the space. Also, there were areas of the wall that needed painting at the back-of-chair level, a chair rail would fix that issue; obviously a constant problem. The above only slightly diminished what my wife and I deemed a wonderful night with a well curated delicious spectacular meal.

    We arrived to the restaurant and was greeted by the hostess and immediately brought to our table. We were at the table fifteen minutes before we were greeted by our waitress. Our waitress seemed unimpressed with our order including no cocktails (I’m pregnant) and we barely saw our waitress there after. Our food was brought out by runners and by the time our waitress ever checked on us we were almost done. She was condescending in asking us if we wanted refills when she did communicate with us and you could tell she was much more engaged with those that had bar drinks. The portion for my meal (the chicken) was incredibly small. If the service was amazing, the value and very noisy environment would make up for it however the service was subpar.

    It was a Saturday night so we didn't expect a quiet restaurant but it was extremely loud with multiple large parties and loud music. It took a long time to seat the 30 person party just ahead of us which meant we got our table almost 30 minutes late. It was frustrating. But then the food came very quickly which helped us to feel better.

    I went to Circe for my 14th wedding anniversary last night.........first let me say the food and drinks were amazing. I have absolutely no problem with that. I'm having an issue with the managements integrity. Let me explain. On Circe's website it reads if you are going to the theater (which I was) before or after the show you receive a 10% discount. When I asked the server why I did not receive the theater discount, she said she had to go discuss it with her manager. The manager said they were not doing that promotion........so why is it still on the website? That's false advertisement, lazy management, and terrible customer service. If you don't want to offer the promotion simply remove it from your website. You should honor it until you put the effort in and take it down from YOUR website. You had the opportunity to do the right thing and declined. Sadly ended our dining experience on a sour note.

    It is our favorite restaurant to go to before the theater and just about any time. Did take out during Covid but glad to be back in person and glad the staff is all vaccinated which makes it feel safer. The food and service are always great! And when restaurant weeks happen it is absolutely the best menus in town!

    The waiter was great. The food and drinks were very good. That being said, we waited an hour an a half for our food. Our reservation was for 6:15. We arrived a little before that and our order was taken by 6:15. The waiter asked if we had tickets to see Pretty Woman at PPAC at 8:00 which we did. We continued to wait and wait and after speaking to the manager our food finally arrived at 7:35. I immediately asked for the bill and a box since there was no way we could eat all the food in 10 minutes. We literally had to inhale half of it and hit the road running. PPAC does not allow left overs to be brought in (understandably) so we had to throw it into the trash can and were seated with about 5 seconds to spare.The waiter was very apologetic throughout the evening and had also spoken to the manager. Clearly it was not his fault but they weren't able to give us an explanation for the delay. Two drinks were taken off the bill but it was small compensation for an expensive, terrible experience.
