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!
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!
This is the second time I have visited the CIRCA and both times the food was awesome and so was the service! I had the short ribs over spinach and mashed potatoes and the ribs were tender and cooked to perfection. To top it off, we shared the pumpkin cheesecake and it was lite and delicious as well. I would recommend this establishment for a great meal and stress-free ambience.
Yummy food, friendly professional staff, timely service.
The reason we dine inside and will continue to do so is because of you "SERVERS" and the FOOD QUALITY.......whichis always excellent and satisfying.....
Reservations were perfect, service was quick, food was delicious.
Food was decent, but dinner portion quite small. My husband’s sandwich was better. Will stick to casual food next time.
Great place to dine before Nats game. Service was superb and food was fantastic as usual. Steak Frites was an excellent vhoice.
My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary the Circa crew created a fun and inviting experience. Food was great and prepared quickly. The drinks were good and we were given dessert and a thoughtful card signed by staff!
Will definitely be back for future visits!
Oh those Brussels sprouts with Gorgonzola and bacon. Just delicious! The short rib with potatoes and spinach was excellent. Loved the server, who was present, but not hovering. It was a little loud for sustained conversation. Turn down the sound and it was great
It was very nice!
Excellent as always!
Overall, a pleasant evening. The free range brick chicken was good, but needed less salt.
My first time at Circa NY was amazing! Our server Justin was attentive, kind and an absolutely amazing listener. For my app I had the bruschetta which was to dieeee for but very filling so it’s a great shareable plate. For my entree I ordered the salmon medium well and it was perfect. And lastly , if ever you’re in doubt about getting a dessert get the bread pudding. It’s like nothing I ever had before. Absolutely the best thing in the entire restaurant! Thank you so much Justin! You made ladies night or our post bday celebration perfect!
I am in love with the tuna poke’ bowl! Can eat it daily!
Came for brunch a few weeks ago and tried the mushroom flatbread and we had to come back for more. The sliders were to die for and the Brussel sprouts were tasty. Nancy our server was the best and so professional. We love it here!
This was my first time at the restaurant and I was impressed. The food was delicious, great ambience and location. Our server Justin N. was AWESOME!
The bul ko ki wraps are to die for, and brussels with bacon and blue were top notch. The scallops were excellent, too. Both my husband and I noticed how nice the bathrooms are, and how much that little thing adds to the experience.
I go around the DMV to size up the food and atmosphere. This was a very good spot. Definitely thumbs up!!
Food was excellent
The food was prepared very well. I had the Tuna Seared salad and the small plate calamari. Great flavors. I would definitely go again.
Great place to eat before a Nationals game! Good food and beer selection.
Service was just ok, nothing impressive. I ordered the free ranch brick chicken and it was delicious! Hubby ordered the scallops and they were overcooked, a bit rubbery and tough. Overall it was a nice restaurant close to our hotel. We would probably give them another shot if we're ever in DC again.
Great food, great service, great opportunity to discuss business.
