The service was outstanding. For the price...a greater variety of food would have been appropriate. There was only one hot meat- Prime Rib. But it was rare. If you wanted
well done, an end piece was sliced...but the one I got was still rare.

The Circular is a one of a kind experience. We have been enjoying breakfast in this splendid setting for about 20 years. The staff is very nice, Noreen and Jolena have been there since we first had the pleasure of this restaurant. The food is very good and worth the price you pay for the setting. The Hotel Hershey is world class right in central PA!

Truly a special place for any occasion. Dining in one of "America's Castles" is very cool. We are looking forward to visiting, again, soon. Thank you to the Hotel Hershey management for donating a gift certificate to Eos Therapeutic Riding Center. We were happy to be the high bidder, so your donation generated another donation for this worthwhile organization.

I am ambivalent about our experience. The food was very good but not exceptional, we both had the grouper special. The staff could not have been nicer but when would ask a question they kept bringing us an Ipad to search for the answer. I bet our server could have answered our question directly but I wonder if management is forcing the tech

The room is not as pretty as it once was, but that is a matter of taste I suppose.

Disappointments were the lack of chocolate dessert choices (It's Hershey after all) and on the opposite end, the chocolate martini was like drinking straight Hershey's syrup.

For a Grand Dame of a hotel and at this price point I had very high expectations but they weren't quite met.

As always the circular dining room delivers. Biscuits are always the best with sea salt butter.

We always love to dine at the Circular Restaurant!!! Our waitress was very pleasant, but even with the assisting staff, we could have been checked in on for heated beverages and dessert. The ambiance is so relaxing and the menu always offers something exciting and new.
Thank you!

We love going to Brunch here. The food was good. However we have noticed the last couple of times that the wait staff seems a bit disgruntled. It was not overly busy today so not sure what the issue was that was affecting their mood.

We were celebrating a birthday and selected The Circular for its location, food selection and ambience as we had been there previously. The service was impeccable as usual, and the staff very personable. The timing of the delivery of the courses was well paced and we never felt we were rushed. The staff and management periodically checked our table (but not too often) to ensure they met our needs and that we were satisfied with the service and the food. We would highly recommend The Circular for any occasion.

We did somehow not get a table by the window as originally requested! However, the server was outstanding. When I noticed my coffee cup had a crack and the coffee was slowly filling the saucer, she immediately took care of the problem, apologized, brought a new cup/saucer and served more coffee. The buffet provided a wide variety of many foods and desserts. Styling and service of the food was exceptional.

Our only mistake was to dine at the Circular Room before we visited the other three restaurants we chose in the Hershey Restaurant Week event. The other venues couldn't even come close. Even the water was much better than at any of the other locations. The place is not inexpensive, but we definitely got what we paid for. We felt very taken care of by the maitre D, and the three servers who suppied us with the food we had chosen, all expertly prepared and served. My two companions and I picked different choices from the appetizers, entrees and desserts selections, and each of us judged our choices fabulous . One does not dine at the Circular Room when one has a train to catch; dinner is an event which should not be rushed, but savored. We really enjoyed our evening at the Hotel Hershey Circular room.
