Fantastic restaurant. We eat there before going to baseball games. Close to the ballpark, great food, great service, etc. I highly recommend.
We had poor service.. couldn’t hear anything the server was saying because our table was right under a ceiling speaker. She never checked on us for beverage refills.. they were not busy, so we weren’t really sure why she didn’t check on us. The lobster ravioli is not a great portion for the price. I think this place is simply way overrated. Oh.. and there were multiple bugs flying around too.
Great healthy options before Nationals game. ahi tuna salad was great. And flatbread pizzas are awesome. Good Entrees choices ; salmon, ahi Tuna , crab cakes and veggie burger. Go and enjoy ! You will be happy you did.
Great food. Nice atmosphere and drinks. Service could have been a little better as far as making sure the table had straws, napkins, condiments, checking on how the food was etc.
Enjoyed the food and great service from Al.
Always great food and excellent service. Circa is a little pricy, but it’s worth it. It’s a favorite of mine.
My wife has special dietary needs and our server was attentive, knowledgeable and conscientious about her order. Always appreciated, will definitely be back!
Great spot, delicious food and cocktails. Near the stadiums,
Circa is always good.......servers and all personnel aer vry personable and upbeat.....the food is really good all of t he time. Have been dining there since you opened at the Navy Hard.......since you arrived there......previously use to go to GalleryPlace......
Already have recommended friends who do eat at CIRCA......and the two men w/us last night do also.
The food was delicious! While the service was a bit slow, it is understandable giving staffing shortages. Overall, it was a very enjoyable meal!
food was great. server was very friendly & helpful. good time.
I took my honey here for his birthday. The food was delicious. The ambiance was nice. The service was great. We were greeted and serviced but not only our waiter but other staff members as well. The shotgun shrimp was really tasty but we wished it came with a couple more shrimp. The free range brick chicken with brown butter sauce and broccolini was our fave. They not only brought him a birthday dessert as requested (cheesecake which was yummy) but a personalized card with staff signatures and our waiter took a Polaroid picture as a keepsake. A very nice and personal touch that made his birthday even more special.
Food was really good. Had the lobster ravioli. It was amazing. The waitress did an amazing job. Definitely will come back again
This is an unpretentious place to eat and drink after work or before a ballgame. The food is decidedly good and the portions are good—what was once normal size. It’s not inexpensive but it’s not stuffy.
Thank you for your rating and review! We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you before your next visit to Nat's Park!
Circa is one of the best restaurants in the DC area. We love going there because the food is always great, the service is top and we love the ambiance. Lively without being too noisy. I highly recommend it.
would like the menu to change more often or the restaurant to offer specials. Menu always the same.
Made reservations same day for brunch. Our food was delicious!
Great pre-game experience! Awesome service and food.
Great Service. Amazing quality food. Peach Bellinis are a must have!
Henry and Bre are great, drinks were great, appetizers were great! Will be back soon for sure!!!
Excellent food and service!
I’m always at Circa but this dining experience was 100x better and that’s because of our server. I also like the changes made to the menu. 10/10!!!
Food was good, but a bit pricey.
nice location, good ambience, friendly crowd.
highlight was the great staff and particularly our server was excellent. attentive, but not too much, friendly, answered questions, and on the ball. regularly filled water glasses and brought food and requested items promptly. didn't catch her name, but she was great. sounded like an Eastern European accent, but not sure. Kudos to her.
Food tastes delicious, portions were sizable, and staff were great.
Always very good. Usually take new employees and clients.
Only good things about my visit to Circa….the food, ambiance, service, and an awesome playlist!
I had a reservation at Circa at Navy Yard for 9:00pm 6/23/21 for dinner and drinks. I arrived on time and asked for seating outside. I had to wait about 10 more minutes. While waiting, I sat at the bar. Once I was seated my server brought me water and picked up my drink that I had order at the bar and brought to my table as well. This was around 9:12pm. My server didn’t come back until 9:40pm - he said he overheard me speaking to the couple next to me about the items they had and what I wanted to order for food and wanted to inform me that the kitchen was already closed. I actually choose this place for food because it was recommended. I was a bit frustrated because I felt as if though he and the 3 other people I encountered could have informed me that I need to place and order before the kitchen closed or even came back to my table in time for me to discuss menu items. I felt that the server (I believe he said His name was Josh) purposely waited to come back to my table after the kitchen was closed and I felt this is why I received poor service. I was offended that he and the manger found it to be an appropriate response that they are sorry we wasn’t informed.
Food was excellent. Staff was awful. Told the staff about a birthday surprise and they never came around with anything they had promised. Nothing at all. We had an awkward wait even though we had a reservation a week in advance and we did not even get our silverware until our entrees had been sitting in front of us for around 5 minutes. Again, the food was great but everything else was slow and poor.
Very clean and much care taken to keep everyone safe
First time inside a restaurant
Salads were very good
My friend loved the tuna and I had grilled shrimp
Excellent food—the draft IPA (wow), tuna poke nachos (great sauces), avocado toast w/poached egg (who would have thought) and the bread pudding desert (to die for)—was excellent! The service and ambience was top notch. Definitely coming back!
Upscale great food, good service. We got seated quickly and the waiter was very attentive. Food came out quickly and was tasty.
Nice outdoor seating area. Great selection of good. Salads or burgers. Nice wine and beer selections.
Server was very accommodating and friendly.
We went before a Nats game. Great location.
Great service and the food was delicious. Never let down coming to this CIRCA.
We usually have a great time dining here! One of our faves. Happy Hour prices are great. Service was good and the two hour restriction has been lifted so we were able to enjoy our meal and time together without the rush! Of course we’ll be back.
Thank you for your rating and review, Jacqueline! We appreciate your support and look forward to hosting you for happy hour again, soon!
Ate in the outside patio before a Nationals game. Really enjoyed it.
Circa is always great!! I highly recommend to everyone I know!
Loved the food and service. My friends and I will return soon.
Thank you for your rating and review! We look forward to hosting you again, soon!
I’ve been to Circa several times and they never disappoint.
