Excellent!! Superb!! Outstanding Escargot!!

We came here on our way to Florida and stopped to celebrate our daughter's 22nd birthday. Everything was perfect. The ambiance, the waitperson Michael, the cocktails, the Escargot, the duck and desert. Next time we want to eat in the bar.

I was just sitting here musing over the restaurants my husband and I visited in Paris last year, when I remembered Circa 1875. It took a few moments to also remember that we ate here when we were in Savannah, not Paris! The atmosphere was cozy, friendly, and charming. The staff were attentive and personable, and our food was scrumptious.... More

There are a lot of restaurants in Savannah to choose from but Circa has the best atmosphere, staff and food. I would recommend eating in the bar area. Ian and Tony will take care of anything you need! If you do not end up eating - you must stop for a cocktail after dinner. I will say, one of the... More

During our recent nearly 6,000 mile road-trip through the South and Southeast, we dined in 19 cities at night. Now back in Arizona we are refreshing our memories on what were the best restaurants on our journey. Most certainly does Circa 1875 Gastro Pub in Savannah rank high on our list. Entering this beautiful restaurant we felt that we were... More

This place is so romantic!!!!! My husband took me there for a date night and I don't have enough words to describe the place!!! It was charming, excellent customer service and our waiter made us fell like home!! They have a very robust but manageable wine list! Every single person in the restaurant made us feel welcome!

My wife and I have eaten at Circa 1875 for several years now. We love their Au Poivre burgers. Unfortunately, their manager has now chosen to not put customers first, thus I am needing to post this great disappointment in the service and food. My wife's au poivre burger had 2 hairs embedded in the tomato and lettuce. The manager... More

Circa (as it is known to the locals) is a great French bistro. The menu is classic French casual, comfort food which is well done and nicely presented. There is usually a mix of locals and tourists. The bar is a happening place and some people eat at the bar.

We just loved this restaurant. Lovely setting, like a bistro in Paris. I had the duck cassoulet, which was cooked perfectly and had good flavor. My husband also loved his chicken dish. Service was excellent. Don't even think about it, just go!
