We'd heard about this restaurant and decided to try it a while back. We were kicking ourselves that we hadn't come sooner! The dishes the chef prepares are so fresh and current with what's in season. They are unique and quite tasty. The servers are cool, nice and knowledgeable. It is a small restaurant but has a busy local vibe.... More

A group of us decided to try this place on a recommendation from a friend. The ambience is cozy, staff are warm and welcoming-very knowledgable and accommodating. The food was presented well and tasted very good. There are offerings you won't find elsewhere and the unique flavor combinations are worth a try...if you can deal with the locals. Our group... More

Visited them during Restaurant Week. Service was very good. Alan, our waiter took good care of us. The food was delicious. The tiger prawn with grits appetizer was delicious (I normally don't do grits). I had the bison meatloaf and my wife had the short ribs, both of which were delicious. We will definitely be going back. The restaurant is... More

Circa offers a varied selection seafood, red meats and poultry. The fried oyster appetizer bursts with flavor, as is the bison meat loaf. Make sure you make a reservation.

My wife and I tried this place out last weekend along with another couple. We each got something different, and every one of us absolutely cleaned our plates. Food was well prepared, seasoned and presented - the value for what you are getting is not bad at all. Our dinners were all right at $23, which was probably more of... More

Unique "quality" culinary experience... small place (casual sheek) with decent beverage prices however easy to ring up a huge overall tab. "Restaurant .com coupon" helped ease the pain....I give it a five but servie is not in par with the food which is very good. The service is good too but needs to step it up just a little to... More

Went with another couple and we had a great dining experience. The gentlemen had the special. Who would have guessed that bison short ribs could be so delicious. Extremely tender and tasty. My wife and I had the special salad that included among other things roasted lettuce, goat cheese and crispy prosciutto with a wonderful dressing. The ladies had crab... More
