My wife and I went out last night and after stopping at the place we initially intended to eat at and discovering the wait was an hour for a table, we booked a table at Circa 1922 through trip advisor without issue. After finding parking downtown (which can be a challenge on a Friday night) we stopped at the restaurant... More

I went here with my boyfriend, we changed our mind about a different restaurant. I am so glad that we did. We had not dressed the occasion, but that didn't matter. Our waitress was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere we were in was great. I will recommend this place to everyone because it was a great experience.

Visited while on vacation in Wilmington. The pre fixe menu was definitely worth it at $23.95 pp, and included a choice of salad, entree and desert. Try the lamb ragu on pasta. Very nice indeed.

Circa is a really nice local spot for dinner and drinks in Wilmington. Good for large or small groups, they cater to any situation. The food is easily 4 star, and the staff is very professional and friendly. Highly recommended.

Classy place, tasty food. We were surprised at the quality of the food (even sushi was done perfectly) but the prices were reasonable! If you go at a popular time get a reservation, we just sat at the bar though and it was great. Perfect date place, we will be back.

We we4e expecting to do the usual ordering off of the menu but were intrigued by the fixed rice options. For $23.95, you could order a salad, an entree', and a dessert. All of the entree's were on the menu for about $6.00 less than the fixed price option. Excellent value with decent sized portions. Steak was nicely prepared and... More

Had dinner with a group of 8 work colleagues. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Good wine selection. Food was very good from the apps through dessert...giant crembrule was cool and more than enough for three people as was the giant chocolate cake slice.

Circa 1922 came highly recommended by my sister who lives in Wilmington. We were celebrating our engagement and wanted good food and ambiance. Circa has both. The food is some of the best we've ever had. The meat and cheese platters are fantastic. The steak was beyond good, the only catch was we didn't order steak. It was late so... More
