Good Dinner Atmosphere!
Great lunch location to meet clientele. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Unfortunately, I believe this location of Circa is closing at the end of the month due to not being able to renew their lease. I would definitely recommend the other Circa location.
A Dupont Circle find! Good varied menu (salads, sandwiches and main dishes) and food is uniformly good. Front desk and servers are very nice, friendly and responsive. I find myself in the area often and sometimes have time considerations. Each time this has occurred the server has cheerfully made this happen without seeming rushed or anything other than obliging.
Food was delicious/ambiance cozy. Would definitely go back!
Lovely, good food, a little too much verbal attention from servers, just pour the refills of tea or water and allow our conversation to continue.
Food and service were great. Rap music and adjoining sports bar can be a little loud and distracting if on a date or looking for peaceful dinner.
We had a late dinner at Circa at Dupont. Initially I didn't realize it was a chain, as it didn't have a chain restaurant feel. The food was pretty good. I had the poke tuna nachos which were delicious and a bison burger that I would rate 7/10. The service was decent, but the waitress could have been more knowledgeable about the beer list and ABVs. Also, the restaurant turned on club-type music at what seemed like too early an hour as there were still tables finishing meals pre-bar crowd. Otherwise, it was an overall pleasant experience.
En todas las opciones que me dan para responde porque recomendaria este lugar, ninguno dice algo simple, "porque la comida es deliciosa" a eso se va a un restaurante. Me encanto y cada que puedo regreso.
Hangar steak salad was AMAZING! Atmosphere was quaint yet cute! Service was super attentive! We will be back FOR SURE! :)
Me and my wifi had a pleasant time in the restaurant.
The employees were all very kind and the food was great.
Definately would return
Excellent neighborhood restaurant. Great food, great service, strong value.
Delightful as I knew it would be, if past is prologue. Love the kale Parmesan, their signature roasted Brussels Sprouts, and their daily soup special. And they make a mean Manhattan (I like their rye version) with seriously good cherries. The wait staff is warm, professional.
Fabulous evening. The cotes du rhone wine was excellent, and the special surf and turf was magnificent. Service could not have been better. The place is really, really great.
Nicely prepared food, reasonable prices, excellent service, comfortable interior - right at Dupont Circle.
We arrived very early for our reservation but were promptly seated. The restaurant was very busy but pleasantly quite for the amount of people. This is a welcome change from so many restaurants these days. We ordered drinks, which came out relatively quickly. We then placed our dinner orders. The first course came out promptly but there was a lot of time until our mains arrived. Our server did apologized in advance of our entrees being served because of the lag time. The table seated next to us were seated much later than us but received their food first.
The plates looked nice, the plate itself was ice cold, not good for keeping your food warm. The food had good taste. I won't say it was outstanding, it was good. My dinner companion felt the same. I had the halibut and she the salmon.
We ordered the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, they were not fresh baked, they were freshly warmed and were very dry.
Best Brussel sprouts in the business!
A flat bread and macaroni and cheese were perfect to share between two people. And we finished the evening with their bread pudding. I️t was my second time there, and will definitely be headed back!
The food was delicious. We had the pumpkin ravioli and the vegetable quinoa bowl. There was an event going on so it was a bit noisy but we were seated immediately and would definitely go back.
Four friends gathered in D.C. to celebrate our 85th year...all have birthdays in 2017! Staying in Dupont Circle area, so looked online and booked Circa. We were very pleased with the ambiance of the restaurant and the food choices. Granddaughter had arranged for champagne for our table...service gracefully handled. Knowing age and occasion, we were given a corner table, so altho restaurant is lively, we could talk and hear each other. Would go again.
Ate at this restaurant three times in four nights, once with a group of 7, and, because of that experience, twice with a group of two. Excellent food and service every time.
Only negative is we came during happy hour but happy hour specials were not available at tables, just the bar...otherwise great place
I love this spot.
Circa is always a good idea. The food is great, I love the new additions to the menu, the ambiance is always nice enough to have a conversation but not stuffy so you can't have a good time. I have never been failed by their service, particularly tonight, as our server was amazing.
Thank you as always!
Was absolutely impressed with the service provided by MaryAnn. She answered all questions. She was a wonderful representative of Circa.
It was a lovely day to sit outside and enjoy a nice meal and good conversation. Always a nice neighborhood spot.
Went here for casual dinner - food was great, price was reasonable and the location was great!
Interesting menu with something for everyone. Certainly noisy so don't expect an intimate conversation. Good spot for a group of friends.
Martini's were perfect ! Flatbread BBQ chicken was outstanding and great way to start. Dinner were salads with salmon . Great food and all of staff is wonderful
We really enjoyed our brunch at Circa! Relaxing, casual atmosphere. We got there at 10:30 AM so we beat the brunch rush a bit. Avocado toast was delicious. Thanks!
Great late dinner for my family of three after a long drive to DC. atmosphere pleasant, food very good and drinks delicious. Just what the doctor ordered!
Met a friend from out of town and suggested CIRCA because there is something for everyone on their menu. It’s really a happy hour scene and takes over the restaurant. Don’t go for the ambiance. Go for the really tasty food at great prices.
Great small plates, starters and salads for lunch!
It was, simply put, a wonderful evening at Circa. Food and drinks were superb, and our waiter, Daniel, was excellent.
This is a neighborhood gem for me. Uniformly excellent food and service. Try the wonderful turkey burger.
The wait staff was very attentive and very courteous to our party. All the food came out great and everyone enjoyed their meal and brunch drinks.
We had a fine lunch. The sandwiches were robust and tasty and the service was excellent. It was fairly quiet, which made it comfortable for conversation.
Delicious brunch menu (the avacodo toast is a must!), friendly wait staff and prompt service
The egg white omelette was a little too oily
The hanger steak salad is superb, and service is very, very good.
I've been to Circa before and suggested it to a visiting friend. Very convenient to Metro, pleasant ambiance, good service, good food. We were able to sit and chat for a while after finishing our meal and with no hassle from the staff.
