The food here is always done very well it's a quiet, trendy place that makes you feel welcome. The atmosphere makes you want to stay longer and they have a fabulous wine list.

I often don't like eating in a basement of a restaurant. I like windows! But the downstairs room was cozy and full of people. I'm not sure why we picked this restaurant--probably from another Trip Advisor, but however we stumbled upon it, no matter. The country pate was delicious and then I had the best coq au vin (chicken and... More

We have family in Savannah that took us to this gem of a restaurant. Generous and delicious martinis, best escargot I've had in ages, everything, including the atmosphere was delightful. Our server was well informed and we had a great experience here,.

A great little pub style bar that is very cozy, warm and inviting. Bartender was excellent. Made great drinks and explained the history of the building and it's contents. Very friendly

This is one of the top restaurants in Savannah. My food was cooked to perfection. Music and ambiance reminded me of France. Loved it! We'll be back.

If it's true that pride goeth before a fall, then Circa 1875 is DOOMED! DOOMED, I SAY. Seriously: the level of pride that Circa takes in their work is wonderful and good. First off: the place is gorgeous. More Boho French on this place than a theatre major during her first Spring Break in Paris. If you get a chance,... More

After a wonderful meal, and spending hundreds of dollars, we were told we were taking too long to finish and please move to the bar. We obliged, taking our unfinished wine with us, but it still is not sitting right with me. I will take this into consideration when planning another special night out.

I'm sorry you felt rushed, we had tables waiting to be seated, and we have a small dining room. I hope you will reconsider, and dine with us at a later date, Thank you for your input. Jeffrey Downey, co-owner More

This is an authentic French dining experience and well worth a visit. My roast chicken was beautifully prepared and served and my husband raved about the brook trout with glazed carrots. Savannah is blessed with so many excellent restaurants and this is certainly one of them.

This was by far the best dinner my wife and I had on our visit to Savannah. We both had the Steak Frites which were perfectly prepared and very delicious. We highly recommend Circa 1875!
