My husband and I had breakfast here on Sunday, February 18th but I neglected to mention Open Table to the restaurant and would like to receive my dining points. We stayed in Room 317.
The service was great and the food was delicious.
No one was there for a reason
Wonderful to find a quiet spot for downtown dining! Definitely a hidden gem.
Circle Bistro is a neighborhood go-to for lunch, happy hour, dinner, or setting up a meeting for friends. The food is excellent and innovative. The staff is excellent, although from time to time inattentive. It is reliably good.
We made a reservation for 11:45 on Sunday for brunch. When we arrived at 11:45 we were told they were closing at noon. Why on earth take an 11:45 reservation to only close at noon? Also, not a good way to welcome a guest. Needless to say, we left and went elsewhere because of this.
Wonderful hidden gem! Service was great and we truly enjoyed our meals. The bar area has a wonderful fireplace. It was a very quiet location which was great for a lunch. Will definitely be back!
I visited Circle Bistro for Restaurant Week due to the flexibility of their menu. The options were varied and the food was pretty good. However, the service was terrible. I'm not sure if they were short staffed or what, but the maitre'd seemed to be serving as a waiter and the busser seemed to also serve as a waiter. It took nearly 20 minutes from when we were seated and received water to when someone came to take our order. Then it was another 15 minutes before the first course arrived. I had the hummus and pita. The hummus was a bit too salty and pasty, and the pita was a bit too chewy. I had ravioli for the entree and pineapple upside down cake for dessert. The ravioli was the best part of the meal and the cake was a bit too dry. I had to attend a meeting so I had to get my entree and dessert to go.
Second visit. Good place to talk. Salad was good and prices are reasonable. It is sort of unknown in Foggy bottom.
Love this restaurant for the ability to have a conversation and be heard. They do not bother to leave after one has eaten. Delightful.
There were four of us there for Sunday brunch. All liked their meal. Service was attentive and setting was very nice. Location in D.C. West End is great - right on Washington Circle, across the circle from the Foggy Bottom Metro stop. Although I generally do not like hotel restaurants, this one is an exception. Just what we were looking for. Pricing was great in general; but especially for the area and a hotel restaurant. It may not win awards, but it is a solid choice for a comfortable, good quality meal at a great value. Nice view of the area. All were quite glad that we ate there.
Good location and good
variety of lunch selections. All three of us were pleased with our choices.
We walked to this place before packing up to leave another hotel. Very nice, we made reservations but they weren't needed at 9:45 on this particular Sunday. Pleasant waiter, 5 of us. Several had the banana buckwheat pancakes which were good. (I would have thought they would have put a strawberry or a small piece of fruit on the plate; it seemed sorta naked with 3 pancakes dusted with sugar!) The others had French toast. We all used the blueberry compote, yum. My brother got a ton of bacon with his. It was all tasty; no complaints.
Chose this venue for a business lunch as I knew the noise level would be low. Like it because there are a limited number of table for lunch which it makes it's ideal for doing business as well as enjoying the company.
Very average food. Good service. Too many other restaurants in that area so I probably wouldn't bother to return.
Great location if you are heading to the Kennedy Center for a show. They have valet parking and from there it is a quick trip to the Center. All our food choices were very good as were our wine choices. Service was quick and responded to our need to get to the evening show. Staff were helpful and attentive. The Bistro was a great choice for us!
