We sat at the bar (which is typical) and found they had small plates available daily which sounded perfect for this visit. Our bartender, Hailey was attentive to start but never saw her again until we asked for our check (in frustration). I was going to ask for more food but was never asked how things were and by the...

We wanted to try this establishment with friends from out of town I requested a nice table and was escorted to a small table by the door and receptionist. The atmosphere was dark and not inviting. After requesting another table, we were seated in a booth in a corner. Our waiter was friendly but did not describe any specials or... More

Enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. Course size are ideal so you can enjoy 4 courses without being over stuffed. We enjoyed the scallops and salmon for our entrees both were delicious and very good presentation. Quiet mood lighting makes for a nice couples night.

Make a reservation and go to this restaurant! Don't let the fancy atmosphere and menu items intimidate you: you can get an appetizer, two entrees, two drinks, and two personal-sized desserts for $70 or less. It sounds pricy, but you really get a lot of food and it's worth it. I had the mushroom bruschetta as an appetizer, the eggplant... More

The building is fabulous! Great ambiance, delicious food. The sushi and appetizers in particular. Try the avocado lobster salad!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Wilmington, but V Day was disappointing. Made a reservation on Open door days earlier. Got a call late the afternoon of 14th telling me there was a limited menu...four entrees only. One of those was a filet, but mine had a quarter inch string of gristle. Not good. My wife had the...

Made reservations for six and we were seated in a very crowded section which was extremely noisy, making conversation and hearing the server a real challenge. The mussel appetizer was outstanding bur it ended there. The paella was lacking...very little seafood and the rice was undercooked. Comments from the other guests were from good to fair. We expected more based... More

We had not been to Circa in a year and entertained a friend on a recent Sunday evening. I had requested a booth and they held one for us which was appreciated. However, the overall dining experience was disappointing. Our waiter was capable and attentive so service was fine but the food was not up to par. Our friend ordered... More

We've been here at least 4 or 5 times now and we have never left there disappointed. We are from N.Y. and when we brought my in-laws here even they loved it (they are very picky). I try to order something different every time, and every time I have been floored. We always have excellent service by a British gentleman... More
