Service was excellent but food was average. Wine list is very good! It is a restaurant that is so what comfortable but as far as decor is trying too hard to be French. Sometimes less is more! I would not go again Because there are too many other places in town to try.

Attractive dining room with posters typical but yet not "oh so" comfortable chairs, and an active "bistro" style bar. A nice assortment of typiclly French menu items, pate, steak tartar and if I recall, frissee salade in additon to the well garlicked Caesar. Classic entrees, even cassoulet that I am waitng for a cooler non savannah evening to try, maybe... More

I am a resident of Savannah. My wife and I learned early on that if we want to go somewhere nice to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion, Circa 1875 is the place to do it. We have been there on busy nights and on slower weekday nights and the service and food is exactly the same regardless... More

I love Circa. If you're looking for a great spot to have drinks that isn't too loud or rowdy and has a more intimate atmosphere, this is it.

Fantastic dinner last week. Our server, Emily, was very knowledgeable about the menu and spot on with recommendations. Main floor is lovely, but after taking a tour of the romantic wine cellar we would love to have a meal there. Alas, only open on week-ends so it didn't fit in with our schedule in Savannah

Scrumptious food, warm and fresh dinner rolls, wine and romantic ambiance equals excellent dining experience. I especially loved the cellar's decor, a rebellious juxtapose of church furnishing pieces along with bottles of wine. You shouldn't miss the stories of paranormal activities either :0)

My wife and I had the great pleasure of dining at Circa 1875 tonight. She had fabulous brook trout, I had the cassoulet. Fabulous! Then there's the impeccable service we experienced with our waitress, Galen, who was equally fabulous. Great food, great drink and a wonderfully romantic dinner. We'll be back!

A real find! Excellent French restaurant near the tourist part of Savannah. Always have a great meal. Lovely decor. The charcuterie plate is to die for...get a half portion, as it is huge!

My wife and I visit Savannah often and decided to try this restaurant because we love French food. So glad we did! We ate at the gastropub for dinner and loved the atmosphere and ambiance. Escargot and Country Pate were amazing! We decided to split the Cassoulet Maison -- wise choice considering how large the portions were. My wife loved... More

On one side a wonderful pub were you can buy and enjoy an ice cold harp and Stella! The other side a quaint restaurant with a lot of character! The trout was outstanding and salmon was done perfectly! I had the poached egg added to the baby spinach salad and my wife enjoyed the Creme Brulee as her desert....Worth the... More
