“Best food”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Best steak I have ever eaten! Perfectly cooked, moist and so tender it melted in your mouth.
Another person had the paella and could not commenting on how good it was.
The lamb shank was excellent, and the shrimp and grits very very good, according to the others
In the party. All in all very impressed!

“Love Circa”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Wonderful place for a special dinner or celebration. Great atmosphere, food and service. We came with handicapped family and they could not have been nicer and made sure we were on the first floor with plenty of room for our elderly members. The creme brulee is to die for and huge; our steaks were perfection and our server was a delight, thrilling the Moms with his expertise in coffee pouring. A delightful experience and one I will remember always. Thank you Circa for a memorable evening.

“Make mine a tasting experience.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The menu is set up to where you can be as creative or as conservative as you wish. The atmosphere in the restaurant is definitely situated around an older style and is very cool. I got two sets of tapas; the duck pastrami and gouda cheese. These come with many items to taste (orange honey, mustard seed, etc.) with and are so worth the price! I bought the Filet and it was cooked very true to what I ordered, medium-rare. And lastly, our group of six ordered two desserts, as the waiter said they were huge. He was right. The Creme Brulee and the Crepes were so fantastic and we had more than enough between the six of us. Hands down, it was an awesome meal and tasting experience.

Great restaurant, good food, nice ambience. Whether you are looking for a full meal, formal or otherwise, or just to have drinks and tapas at the bar, it's a good place to go. Have done all three
