My favorite restaurant in Newport News!!!

I travel a lot for work and am always on the look out for small, local restaurants with awesome food where the staff make you feel welcome. I ordered a beef dish that was to die for. My cousin got the crab cake. My friend is vegan and he always asks them to surprise him. It's always amazing... read more

We had been to Circa 1918 awhile back and thought we'd try it again. It was our anniversary and we were looking for a nice local place for an extra special dinner. Well we were not disappointed! We were seated immediately and presented with a complimentary glass of champagne to help us celebrate our anniversary - it was very good!... More

My wife and I stopped in to catch a bite before heading to the penninsula community theater. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a few drinks and appetizers before the play. The bar tenders were very welcoming and their recommendation for food were spot on. The place is small the the taste of the dishes are big bold and... More

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
