Worth a visit as Circa 1922 is a bit of a step up from the bar/pub like stops in the area. Wonderfully restored building, comfortable and long bar. We went on a Saturday night in July and thought we would have a wait but were seated fairly quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals from steak to Paella. The macaroni & cheese... More

We didn't have reservations for Friday night dinner but we were seated right away. The waiter was helpful with his recommendations. We had a tapas assortment to start, I had red snapper for my entree and my husband had a medium rare filet. Everything was just perfect. Deserts are huge! The colossal creme brulee was superb, though it could easily... More

We love this place, you can tell the servers are very experienced and professional. I had "chicken" - chicken breast wrapped in bacon! Absolutely no complaints...would be 5 stars if we went there as a couple vs a family, go early if you have children under 8.

We had the opportunity to enjoy a great dinner at Circa 1922 the other evening. The restaurant is in a nice location in the heart of the historic section of Wilmington and an easy walk to the river. The atmosphere is excellent, sort of like an old restored warehouse, red brick walls, great feeling there. Service was excellent. I enjoyed... More

Best steak I have ever eaten! Perfectly cooked, moist and so tender it melted in your mouth. Another person had the paella and could not commenting on how good it was. The lamb shank was excellent, and the shrimp and grits very very good, according to the others In the party. All in all very impressed!

Wonderful place for a special dinner or celebration. Great atmosphere, food and service. We came with handicapped family and they could not have been nicer and made sure we were on the first floor with plenty of room for our elderly members. The creme brulee is to die for and huge; our steaks were perfection and our server was a... More
