My friend and I enjoyed celebrating our birthdays together with a great fine dining experience. Delicious food, excellent service from experienced server Nate, and newbie Mason is coming along.
Must visit if in Hershey. Pricy for a reason. Excellent service and great food. Would visit again.
Our service was so attentive and special. We were there to celebrate my birthday. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that I totally enjoyed every moment of my night with my amazing hubby!
This is truly a special place- one of the best meals we have ever had!
We were there for car week. The staff was great and John, our server, was excellent. Mason, assistant server, was great also. Douglas, the manager, was excellent. There was a very loud disco band up stairs and this was annoying and Douglas “helped “ with this.
Excellent experience from beginning to end. The food was delicious and our server was awesome! Highly recommend.
Our dinner was beyond fantastic! I tried for weeks to get a reservation here finally one opened up. I am so glad we were able to enjoy the dining experience.
We had bread service, a wonderful and very flavorful Caesar salad. My husband had fillet and I had their hamburger which was out of this world delicious! We had the sweet potato pudding and apple bread pudding for dessert they were both fantastic. Our waiters were exceptional customer service was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.
We stayed at the Hotel Hershey for my husband’s birthday, which was wonderful! We had dinner at the Circular, and it more than met our expectations! Specifically, I had duck, which was perfect. My husband’s steak was one of the best! We are used to good steaks (Allen Brother’s), but this steak was exceptional, and we asked, and it was locally sourced. The dessert was a chocolate lovers dream! Exactly what you’d expect at the sweetest place on earth. We had the breakfast buffet at the Circular also, I can’t remember a better one!!! We will be back!!!
Loved everything!!!! A real getaway in such a town! The food was above and beyond.
We were seated at 6:30 PM. We had moved or reservtion up at the Hostess station from 6:45 to 6:00. We were seated at 6:30PM
We did not receive our entres until after 8:00PM It wasn't that busy when we sat, two other tables a deuce and a forsome, receicved their dinners 15 -20 minutes before us, we only had three at the table.
No explination, no apolgy. After we complained to the Manager, the Waitress told us desert was on her, not the Circular. We could not penalize her, so we only ordered coffee and 1 order of ice cream.
We know there is staffing issues due to Covid, but why not keep your customers in the loop as to status of dinner, maybe even offer some bread servce due to the delays.
We were meeting friends for our annual dinner. We have been dining here for 19 years during the annual AACA Hershey car show. It was very noticeable at the fewer staff attendants. It was sad not to see the regular staff or guests. The waiter we had had almost 1/3 of the room. The menu was new and not like previous years. We enjoyed our time there but there was something different. The dining room no longer reflects the elegance it once did. I feel sorry for those who had never experienced it.
This was not our first time here but it didn't disappoint. Our whole family was there to celebrate a family milestone. The food and service was excellent, as usual. Would highly recommend both the service and food.
A special restaurant, in a special town for special milestones.
The lobster bisque was too salty and not hot enough.
The ambience and service were amazing. Mike and Mason were very attentive
It was heavy handed on the salt. My wife was not able to eat her main course. If not for that, This would have been an excellent dining experience. The service was top tier, the ambience was great and the food presentation was beautiful. I recommend this place but be sure to ask the cooks to moderate the salt levels.
The service was very good and the meals concepts were well conceived and executed for the most part. The one exception was the carrot soup which was a great concept but had about 3x too much pesto. The ambience is a classic experience of a historical restaurant.
Absolutely wonderful! The food, service, ambiance.
A fabulous meal in a beautiful setting from a previous era. Staff are friendly and efficient. Good selection of entrees prepared as you requested. Try the Signature Kiss Chocolate Martini.
We had a world class dining experience at the Circular at the Hotel Hershey. Everything was great, but I thought the prices were just a tad high and only complaint was $6 for 6 very small rolls they call Bread Service. The chocolate martinis were delectable and you should go back to the dark creme de cacao.
Well the food was great but the service was probably the worst i have ever experienced. I know there are staff shortages but management should address the issue by taking less reservations - we had a reservation at 7:15 and could not finish our meal until 9pm - I mean the service was awful - If I was the owner I would be very embarrassed .
We really enjoyed the food that we ordered- great taste and well done. Our servers Michael and Mason were very pleasant and accommodating. The place is amazing.
Surprisingly sophisticated! Great wine list and innovative dishes.
How devastating to spend $200 on your anniversary dinner for the food to be so unenjoyable. The $14 dip with the duck fat chips was fairly bland. The $6 bread was flavorless. The $16 lobster bisque had maybe 4 small pieces of lobster in it. My husband’s $40 lamb was edible but not delicious. And my $40 duck was absolutely inedible. We both tried it and it was gross. I still have an upset stomach from it the next morning. Our waitress didn’t ask how our food was and I think it’s because she knew it wasn’t great. How disappointing.
The food was excellent as well as the service. The view of the gardens was beautiful.
Beautiful views, delicious food and well-designed floor plan of tables for a comfortable dining experience. Excellent service.
John was our server. He was awesome we celebrated our 41 st wedding anniversary there every year we return for dinner. The sea bass was excellent meal along with the lobster bisque. My husband had the short ribs that were delicious. John recommended an excellent Cab. The meal was well worth the price. Will be back next year.
Expensive, but absolutely 5-star. Both the Chilean Sea Bass and the Filet Mignon were out of this world. Service was excellent.
We had a dear friend in visiting us from VA and this was the perfect place to catch up over a wonderful dinner. Thanks! The table location was perfect by the window. Thanks Douglas… and Heather our server was such a pleasure.
Got dinner here during a work trip. Service was outstanding. The food was delicious. The Sphered Fashioned cocktail was very good, however, the angels share manhattan was disappointing. Despite that, everything else from the atmosphere to the appetizers blew me away. Will definitely eat there again.
Best food and service we have had in a long long time!!
Outstanding service and cuisine!
A wonderful anniversary dinner! Food and presentation are excellent. Really enjoyed the Hershey Kiss martini, too!
The Circular is a beautiful, elegant yet comfortable restaurant. The food is outstanding - the Tuna tatare was delicious and beautifully presented. My filet mignon was perfectly cooked and one of the best I've ever had. For dessert, the Chocolate Palette was incredible. Along with the excellent service, the Circular is worth the trip and the money
Outstanding entrees, desserts, salads, service, bar and wine menu. Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked, with a nice hearty sauce and selection of vegetables. Both the circular and Trevi 5 have a beautiful setting and view, unparalleled elsewhere in Hershey. The only weakness was the starters- the crust on the rhubarb tart was soggy and tasteless.
Our server Nate was excellent. My mom has a gluten allergy and he was very accommodating to help her navigate the menu. All the food was very good. The steaks were done perfectly. Desserts were excellent. We loved the dip with the duck fat chips. Overall great dining experience.
Elegance and a wonderful experience. The food was amazing and the chocolate martini is a must try! Service was subtle and attentive at all times. A very wonderful place to celebrate a special evening.
One of the best short ribs I have ever had. Thank you for yhr chocolate covered strawberrys on the house for my girls bday. On of the best places. Worth every penny.
The finest meal I've ever had, excellent service and staff.
Everything about our dinner was super: food, service, atmosphere. It was a great end to a spa day.
