Went for brunch on a Sunday. Wasn't very crowded (it was a Holiday weekend). Waiter was great (Stetson). Food was really good. Don't miss the Bulgogi, either in the small plates or the Entree. Also Biscuits with Chicken Benedict.
The food and service was phenomenal. It was the perfect spot for dinner after attending a nearby concert. We had appetizers, entrees, and drinks while there. Everything was very delicious and the service was quick and efficient!
Really enjoyed the food and the excellent service!
The best part was our waiter, Henry - he delivered awesome customer service and was very attentive. Wish everyone had great customer service like him. Ordered the poké tuna nachos which were so delicious, the wings that my hubs and son enjoyed, the calamari was alright, could do without the olives and artichoke, would have tasted better with batter and fried pepperoncini's! Ordered the cesar salad which was drowned with Parmesean cheese and too much dressing so much so that my lettuce was wilted. My daughter ordered the pumpkin ravioli and she said was pretty good, sweet and savory- her words. My son ordered the blackened salmon w/ a side of fries and he said it wasnt as good as mine but he loved the salmon and my husband ordered the steak frites which he said was cooked perfectly at medium temperature and the chimichurri and dash of sea salt complimented it perfectly! Overall, we loved our dining experience and would come back for the spring or summer menu... as long as Henry is our waiter! 😊
A cozy place to eat with great service. We enjoyed being there.
We had a lovely meal here. The food was well prepared and fresh. The service was great
Food & drinks were delicious. Customer service was wonderful.
Our waitress was great! And the ambiance was great!
The food was very average.
Terrible service and well overpriced. Would not recommend!
First time there and the food and service were amazing! We went for a birthday dinner, and they put lit candles in the desserts we ordered and even brought a birthday card signed by all the staff. The brick chicken, shrimp salad, turkey burger, chocolate tort, and pumpkin cheesecake were all delicious. Definitely would recommend!
We went to Circa to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Wait staff was very attentive and our friend even received a birthday card for the re and a photo to memorialize the event. The food was good and service was excellent.
Wonderful experience overall. The waiter could have been a little more attentive.
The food was so good and the wait staff were great!
Really enjoyed! My boyfriend, his aunt, and I went and it was a great choice given the location (which is great), expansive menu, and reasonable price (it wasn’t cheap but given everything else it was good value). Will be going back and recommending it to others!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Will definitely go again when I’m back in the area.
A good place to do happy hour at and go on a date as well. Very nice ambiance.
The atmosphere, service, and food were all fantastic. I’ll definitely be coming back.
My friends and I met here for a late lunch one Saturday afternoon. We absolutely loved the ambiance, service and food. Stetson was our server and he was very attentive.
We started with the Brussels sprouts and ordered the veggie quinoa bowls. Delish!!
Overall great food and value. One of the managers came by the table to ensure our experience was great. Thank you Myles! We will definitely come back.
Hi Lynne, We are so glad you enjoyed Stetson's service and your veggie quinoa bowls! Thank you for joining us and we are looking forward to hosting you again soon! Kindest regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)
It was a fine place for a brunch. Sure the noise level gets worse in the evening.
Great place to dine out.....love the chicken ceasar salad.
Great service! Really great for people with allergies. They were very accommodating.
The staff was very friendly and attentive. Restaurant was very clean and they had good Covid protocols in place. Food was very good. My only complaint was the music. But that won’t stop us from coming back
I went for my first birthday dinner! The four cheese flatbread, calamari, and salad that I tasted from my friend’s plates were all great! I liked the blackberry margarita and lemon drop cocktails too!
The staff was thoughtful enough to all sign a card for me which meant a lot to me, so I would definitely recommend going for a bday dinner!
The only thing that I think is annoying is that happy hour is only honored if you sit at the bar which, due to covid made me and my friends feel like we wouldn’t be distanced enough, so I hope they change that rule!
Thank you for celebrating with us! We are so happy you chose us to be a part of your special occasion and we value your feedback. Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)
Shotgun Shrimp was outstanding. The bartender was very sweet
Great solid options for a casual brunch. Portions are great and lively atmosphere with many options for everyone. Great price point
Excellent experience. The food and drinks were exceptional, and the portions were more than enough without overdoing it. The staff went above and beyond to make our dinner experience memorable.

Great food and location, would recommend. Many brunch options too
Best turkey burger I've ever had! The service was great and quick.
Great food & great drinks. Perfect spot for a fancier than average but still well-priced dinner!
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, however the music should be more diverse for all age ranges.
Hi Warren! Thanks so much for your feedback. I will certainly pass this on to our team. I am happy that you enjoyed your meal :)
Everything we tried was awesome. The service is lovely and the crowd was upbeat and fun. Will definitely be back.

Food was pretty good but service was awful. Had 3 different waiters and then totally neglected. Waiter had no idea about the menu, including drinks. Also, a completely different item was brought to table and waiter asked if it was okay. We had to tell him that we wanted what we ordered.
The food and atmosphere was fabulous! I will be back!
The ambiance was great. The staff was friendly and courteous. The waitress was exceptional with my toddler. The food and drinks were perfect!
Great service and great food. The brunch was filling, but not to the point of being uncomfortable which I love especially at 39 weeks pregnant.
Consistently great food and exceptional service.
Good food (shrimp, calamari, trout); nice to sit outside; waitstaff were also nice but lost track of orders;
Reserved a table for 4 at 645pm. We arrived pretty early (6:20pm) and we're given the option to wait for the rest of our party or be seated, which was nice. We chose to be seated. The other couple arrived at 6:35pm. We had two servers - one seemed to be in training maybe but it was never mentioned who was who. It didn't matter because the service was excellent. We all ordered different dishes - kale Caesar, Ali tuna, salmon, pasta. All were delicious. The fish came out exactly at the requested temperature. No room for dessert but when someone mentioned it was my birthday, the server came back with a birthday card signed by the staff. It was a sweet gesture!
