Took the family there for a birthday treat. Several reviews complained about the noise. Circa was about 3/4s full, but the 4 of us carried on a normal conversation. I did not find it any louder than any other restaurant I have been in. We had the NY strip, pork chop, salmon, and sea bass. NY strip was cooked perfect, tender, juicy and full of flavor, pork chop was tender and juicy, and both fish dishes were also perfect. We have been there many times for lunch, but this was the 1st time for dinner. Will be back!
