Aside from a server miscommunication and delay w/ one of three brunch entries, this was another good visit to one of my favorite local restaurants. Fresh, tasty and consistent.
Nice place. Good service. The grill was not working the full menu was not available, but we are happy to come back and give it another try.
Food was amazing. I got the steak frites and it was mouthwatering.
Terrific food, great caring service, nice spot outside under the tent -- as always, a pleasure to be at Circa Clarendon.
Great place to eat! Only thing was hostess gave up our reservation. But besides that it was awesome.
Terrible unattentive service. Disappointing considering the lack of crowd
The wine was half off, the food was great and plentiful and the service delightful.
If I could give this 6 Stars for service I would. I gathered family for brunch. Our waiter noticed my niece squinting with the sun. He came over with a pair of sunglasses and told her that he noticed her having trouble with the sun. He gave her a pair of sterilized sunglasses to make her more comfortable.
As always, an exceptional meal - the medium rare salmon was cooked to perfection!
the only real distraction was the subway station beneath the front outside area. the food was amazi g and service was great.
Usually love Circa but they were off their game tonight. Always count on them for being reliable. Order was messed up for both salads (came with dressing) and the mushroom flatbread was soggy and flavorless. Service was spotty
Everything we ordered was fabulous . It was my first time there and I definitely will be back. Service was great... everything about it was fantastic.
The food and service was excellent. Wehad a nice outside table in the sun.
We celebrated our 4th anniversary. Easy reservations, though plan in advance as they get booked up quickly. Great service and amazing food. They have never let us down.
The best prepared salmon in any Clarendon restaurant! Always excellent.
The service was great. The $35 three coarse options was wonderful.
Great food and perfect service. Menu is extensive with so many options if you are gluten free
Great service and wonderful food in one of Arlington best food hubs.
Food was great, service was top notch. Can't wait to go back!
The Bruschetta was the best I’ve ever had. Good God
Beautiful location, great environment!! Took my wife on our first date in this area and she loved it.
Unfortunately I didn’t have the best service experience at circa this time around. We were waiting for about 20 minutes before our server came over to take our drink order. I think they were understaffed because our server was not as attentive as she could have been to our table.
Nice environment. Every bite delicious. I got the shrimp n grits without the sausage. Not enough grits though. Next time I will order a side order of grits if I could.
We had a great dinner here with an old friend. The service was great and appetizers and the entrees were excellent.
Enjoyed the calamari and lettuce wraps. Friend enjoyed sliders. Ate outside very nice. Good food and service highly recommend!
Food was excellent! Service was great!
Nice outdoor brunch.
Amazing for a date night/special occasion.
My favorite restaurant in Clarendon - always an excellent meal!
Amazing food as usual. not usually a fan of pre-fix menu., but Circa’s has a great selection for all three courses for a great price. Circa (all of their locations!) continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the DMV area, and will never stop recommending to friends/co-workers/family!
Brunch was very stale. The eggs were flavorless and bacon was way too fatty. There was a hair in our water. Circa has really declined.
Our server was very nice and attentive, but Circa’s brunch isn’t worth it.
We appreciated the complimentary anniversary dessert and champagne. We ate outdoors and the noise from the subway vent was louder than we had anticipated.
Service and food were great! It was a little loud on the left side of the restaurant near the bar area but not much you can do about that. Would come back here again!
Great food and drinks, friendly staff, great ambiance, safe and clean. The Purple Rain cocktail is the best drink in the area. Whole menu is tasty. Top spot in Clarendon.
Great ambiance, service and food! I can't believe I had not returned earlier.
We had the mushroom flatbread. It had a good helping of mushrooms and arugula. Hot and delicious! My son declared the steak frites to be the best he’s had in a while. It was a good cut of hanger steak, cooked just right with no gristle or waste. The beef and vegetable soup was very good too. Service was lovely. We will visit again.
Did not have anymore
