    My overall experience was great. The service, ambiance, value, and food were good. I ordered the seared tuna salad. The flavors were delicious. The mixed greens were old, which I had to out the wilted discolored greens. I would recommend this Circa - Navy Yard.

    Food was delicious. I had the quinoa bowl with chicken, which was healthy and enjoyable. My companion uses a wheelchair and the server and host were very accommodating. We were conducting some business, and initially the music was a little loud, but not a big deal.

    The back room was awesome. We attended a party and it seemed like an excellent location. The staff was extremely accomodating and friendly. Drinks were excellent as were the bar tenders. Excellent place to enjoy a late evening of dancing and drinking. The food up front was delicious, especially their specialty subs.

    Very tasty apps + seafood. I had the blackened salmon on top of the mashed cauliflower. Kids had flatbread, Mac & cheese, slider, and calamari. My wife had the almond encrusted trout - I had a few bites and it was superb! Place was busy on Saturday night, we were seated about 8pm. Waiter was inattentive but food was good.

    I was grateful for the flexibility of our reservation time. However, after we were seated there was some confusion with our server and we were forgotten. We only saw our server a couple times throughout the night, which was a let down for our celebration.
