If the Circular is not THE best "classy" brunch in the Harrisburg area, it definitely is one of the best.

We visit the Circular whenever attending an event in Hershey. At least a couple of times per year. Our favorite meal is the Sunday brunch. There is a wide variety of foods on offer, and excellent farm-to-table treats. The wait staff is always welcoming and efficient. Excellent bartender, too. And the ambiance cannot be beat - what a view! It makes for a very special occasion.

Food, wine selection, service, ambiance - all awesome

Disappointed with the dessert menu - 5 items, and nothing that really celebrated chocolate except the soufflé which required an extensive wait.

We enjoyed another evening at The Circular. Our servers were very nice. Most importantly, the thoughtful chocolate strawberries at the end of our evening was a very nice touch. Thank you.

I miss the white tablecloths, they should really consider bringing those back. The mesh placemats don't fit with the elegance of the Hotel. The Circular is always spectacular food, but for $34, my six-ounce filet mignon should come with a side or two. Kind of nuts to have to buy sides a la carte...

The atmosphere is always worth the extra cost. Quiet, romantic. The service is superb. We eat here every couple weeks for date night just to feel royally taken care of. It may cost you $50 more than your regular restaurant but Skip the movie and live a little bit of the cultured life!
And don’t forget to take a stroll around the Hotel’s gardens and fountains.

The gluten free menu could be expanded for appetizers that can be used as an entree for those of us who have to monitor what we eat. The asparagus salad was, however, very good

Great food, service and views. Started off with a great martini followed by appetizers: braised short rib tostadas and my wife had white and green asparagus, kale, pine nuts in a light citrus vinaigrette. We both had halibut with roasted potatoes and mashed carrots. This was accompanied by a great bottle of South African chenin blanc. Desert was a delicious, warm, chocolate soufflé and coffee.
The server, Patrick, was very accommodating and knowledgeable.
A great dining experience

Our family eats in the Circular Dining Room for lunch buffet several,times a year. Always exceptional food. Love your hot entrees. And of course the deserts. We always request a window table so we can enjoy looking at your beautiful grounds as we eat.

They have an excellent brunch so we decided to celebrate my husband’s birthday at the Circular for dinner. Our main dishes were superb. The sides were only good and the reason we didn’t give the meals 5 stars. The service was very good. We really appreciated that the noise levels were low making it feel like we were the only people in the room. We’ll go back!

My husband and I love The Circular’s Sunday Brunch, which offers a variety of breakfast items, entrees, salads, desserts, and sides. The carving station featured wonderfully tender beef. The chicken and waffle station was a surprise treat with a local favorite. The desserts were stupendous and the service exemplary, as ever.
