Our server Jasmine was awesone. I recommend asking for her. The best table in the house is in rhe back corner. It has comfortable club chairs.

Mushroom pizza and bbq chicken pizza amazing. Spinach salad very good. Short ribs OK at best. Great selection of cocktails and wine.

Great place to see and be seen.

Literally steps from the Dupont Circle metro, Circa is a good spot for a light meal and drinks. The cocktails are refreshing, the wine list is decent, and the appetizers (get the hummus) are flavorful and filling. The pizzas and salads are also good choices, and are reasonably priced. Service is OK. Overall, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Circa is a lively, upbeat kind of place. I prefer to go there in summer or when the weather is warm so I can sit outside and people watch. It's kind of cramped inside as the place is small, and you get to know more about your table neighbors than you'd probably like. Circa is not a place for large groups or kids either.

I love this little boutique bakery. Not the largest selection, but peanut butter blossom and the Samoan cakes were very tasty. Good Illy espresso.

It's overpriced for what it is. The decor is the kind of "chic" that you'd expect for young people who are about to go clubbing afterwords. The food is mediocre and the beer selection leaves a lot to be desired. Yeah, the employees are attentive and they work their arses off because it really is a busy place. I just wasn't particularly impressed with the food. You could do worse, but you could do better too.

Nice place, great bar, and vista to view the street. We enjoyed a nice meal on their patio, and then transitioned to the bar to view the football game. Good mix of regulars and tourists.
