“Not bad food, not bad price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Would give this a good if there was a choice, it was better than average, but think very good might be pushing it!

We walked in off the street and got a table indoors on Sat evening (which was fantastic as it was still boiling outside). The food was good, and the beer was cold (we went for two burgers, BBQ chicken and beef) which came with different fries (sweet potato and normal) so we swapped half and half.

Enjoyable meal, convenient, and would eat there again, but not a really outstanding place.

“Favorite place to meet friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Love Circa at Dupont Circle. Staff always friendly and very competent. Wonderful food. Dine in or out on the patio. We usually eat here a few times when in DC and this time was no exception.

“Great late night spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had a late dinner here. Circa at Dupont is lively, fun and delicious. The Greek salad was excellent, the energy was electric and it was a perfect place for a late night bite.

“Good place for brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Went there twice.
The place is a very busy corner so patio seating is very interesting.
The service is very nice and pleasant.
The food was very good, specially the french toast! Excellent flavor!

“Both the locations at DuPont Circle and Foggy Bottom”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

With 3 others went on several occasions after 1:30 PM to both locations (food OK) and were turn told there was a 30 to 60 minute wait. Each location had from 50 to 60% of the tables open at the time. When caleed for a reservation they say reservations for lunch not taken. Don't waste your time!
