Be sure to make a reservation before dining at Circa 1918. It is a small restaurant, but every item on the menu is absolutely delightful. I can honestly say that I had the best whiskey sour ever while sitting at their bar. If you are in town and up for a romantic dinner or just the best meal of your... More

A few weeks back, we met up for dinner at Circa 1918 with good friends who brought their two young children. It is an intimate little restaurant in Hilton Village in Newport News. There is free parking on the street or in a nearby parking lot. There was only 3 small tables available for outdoor dining but we had a... More

Seasonal southern cuisine in a cozy setting. If we get a night away from the kids this is one of the first places we want to go! Carefully selected beer and wine list. Only complaint is that the bar seats are used for reservations as well so you can't really stop by for a drink. Must have a reservation!

I arranged to meet some business colleagues here for dinner and drinks and was not disappointed. Easy to locate, plenty of free on-street parking. Wonderful location and ambiance. Excellent food, wine and service.

My wife turned me on to Circa and it was awesome. We ordered the Tuna Tar Tar for a dinner app, we were excited to hear that the chef wanted to add smoked bacon and we agreed. The tar tar was excellent. I ordered the Salmon which was great. My wife ordered the Bison Meatloaf. The drinks are a little... More

My husband and i had a lovely evening eating at the bar of this cozy, unique restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient -- there was not a moment of downtime for the kitchen, bartender or wait staff, yet they seemed to make everyone feel attended to and special. The mussels were among the best we've ever tasted -- the... More

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
