Per the recommendation from the pastor that married us (who also called to get us a last minute reservation), my new husband and I decided to splurge a little on our wedding night dinner since it was just the two of us. They treated us with champagne and all the congratulations and warm comments in the world to make our... More

The food here is excellent. The menu includes many fresh and local items. It is a small place, so you will need reservations.

is a good restaurant if you want to try new flavors and different things like duck, lamb, or bison meatloaf. Mainly seafood is the rest of the menu. Their cheese tray is good but you need to ask for more bread with it. I had steak I didn't like the side dish, like couscous or something. For sweet I ordered... More

Circa 1918 continues to impress. Our Valentine's Dunner was simply amazing. A three course set menu was perfect. Only problem was choosing the three courses. Pork Belly appetizer was awesome. This place is an absolute gem! Book reservations now, you won't be disappointed.

After several attempts to get a Saturday reservation, we were able to get reservation at 8pm for dinner on a recent Saturday. We arrived a little early and sat at the bar for over 30 minutes although there were open tables. Once we were finally seated, we selected the Restaurant week menus because "if one gets it, both dinners have... More

My wife and I recently dined at Circa 1918, as a prelude to an evening musical event. When I made our reservations, I was not aware that it coincided with the local restaurant week. As such, they were offering a prix fixe 3 course dinner. For her first course, my wife selected the roasted squash soup with lump crab and... More

We have been here several times and every time has been perfection! This was no exception. There were 6 of us. We made a reservation for 8 pm on Open Table and made a note that we would like to come earlier if that was possible. Kip gave us a call and was able to move our reservation up. We... More

This was my first visit to Circa 1918, but it will not be my last. We found it to be a special, cozy neighborhood spot. The bartender does a great job, and the chef is outstanding. The meal was very, very well prepared food with nice presentations. Another reviewer suggested it was expensive, however as one who travels and enjoys... More

This place is great! I have eaten there many times on my company's expense. It is not cheap so be prepared to pay.
