One of the best places in NN!

Whenever my wife and I need a nice night out, Circa is always quick to come to mind. The food is excellent, the service is always good and they have a very good cocktail, beer and wine menu!

A very special ‘thanks’ to Chef/Owner Chad and his amazing team for making a very dear “16 year old” very happy on Friday night! I recommended Circa to my friend for her daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday for her and her friends and they could not stop raving about what a wonderful evening they had; from the delicious food, amazing service...

Birthday dinner last month with wife and daughter, very nice evening. Owner and staff very hospitable and friendly, very accommodating. Some interestingly unusual menu items but all items were outstanding. Gets a little loud at times, fortunately we were at a four top and not in the row of small couple tables. Couldn't afford to eat here frequently, but nice... More

I have eaten here on many occasions and have always made sure I had a reservation as it is very busy for the 6-9 PM timeframe daily. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, I don't know how they move around so much and so well as the entire layout is very intimate. So why is it packed... the food. A... More

I'll start with the simple truth. My meal was absolutely amazing but I honestly thought it would be ruined by the two couples at the bar who were loud and insistent on constant chatter with one another. Perhaps a table 3 spots away, next to door vs next to bar would have been better, but as small as the place... More

I may just have to find more excuses to visit the peninsula now that I've discovered Circa 1918. I went there before a concert at Ferguson Center and was really impressed with the quality of the food and the service, even though they were jumping from table to table, they were very attentive. Not to mention the Tuesday $5 glasses... More

Top restaurant in Newport News, bar none. Fin is close but not quite there and Schlessinger's isn't even in the same league. Brilliant food and cocktails.

The staff are very attentive and have a great comprehension of the menu (including regular entrees, specials of the day, and drinks). They understand special food needs such as accommodating a member of our party on a gluten-free diet. They have regular items such as the lamb burger I would highly recommend, but also have great specials such as seafood... More

The food was great and so was the service. I read that they had vegetarian cuisine but did not see a vegetarian section on the menu. The waiter said, "No problem, what are you in the mood for? We will create something." And they did. And it was amazing! The place is cramped and noisy but the food, service and... More

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! The place... More
