Great find. Excellent

We stumbled upon this place as it was pouring rain and a number of places were closed. Google had this one listed as closed so we didn't go there at first but then we happened by and it was open. Nice charming French atmosphere. Try the wine cellar for quiet with great appropriate dinner music... read more

I was really thinking this restaurant was more of a 4.5, because things were not perfect. But they were so good, I would have to round up to a 5.0. And I also think that if you are in the area you really should give Circa 1875 a try. So, we stopped in without reservations on a Tuesday night. Note:... More

My wife and I love this restaurant. The bar alone is worth the visit. There are excellent beers on tap and an extensive list of wines by the glass. It has small snugs for couples or small groups as well as table top and bar seating. And the dinning is just as good. I take in the paintings of clouds... More

Wonderful festive atmosphere. If possible, try a seat downstairs where you'll feel like you've stepped into an intimate, French, Old World bistro. We've gone 4 or 5 times and food and service are always outstanding.

This is one of those restaurants I call an"adult" restaurant. It is run and staffed by knowledgeable adults, the atmosphere is charming and relaxing (no blaring music) and the food is wonderful. This is not a "trendy" cafe that has small portions, high prices, loud music, and hipsters crowding the bar. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food... More

Great atmosphere with consistent service & good eats. Packed with Locals & tourists alike, though not "touristy," it has been a favorite spot for myself & friends ever since they opened. Its serves both the foodie that enjoys a nice meal & the late night crowd that enjoys the "pub" side of the restaurant.

My wife and i ate here and the food was delicious. It is a little bit on the expensive side but the quality of the food was worth it. The servers were attentive and helpful and they have a fantastic wine selection.

I found the food to be delicious and couldnt stop eating even after i was full. Only let down was the lavender brulee was slightly under and the lavender was over powering. All in all enjoyable, great staff and relax environment.

We had lived in Savannah for nine years and know many of the best restaurants but this restaurant was new to us. We were very pleasantly surprised. It lived up to people's recommendations. Even in a good restaurant in the US these days it is rare to see truffles and pate de foie gras on a menu. Circa is is... More
