Not any stand alone vegan options, only “ well, we can remove this or that.” This is disappointing in today’s day and age.
The service was very good; our waitress was patient and knew the menu very well. We started with the house salad, which was delicious, I loved the dressing!
I had the scallops, my husband had the lobster ravioli, and they were both excellent. Also, the food came very quickly, which was great, since we were going to see a show at the Kennedy Center.
Great food, great service!
Absolutely awful experience - waiter forgot about our table, we had to move inside because we were seated next to a table of 12 who were drunk and shouting at each other, and the food (we both got salads) was absolutely mediocre. The mixed drinks were heavy on the alcohol. The only decent thing we ate were the bulgogi appetizers.
Great covered outdoor patio and it looks like they have heaters for potential extension of the season for those of us still not interested in sitting inside. Delicious kale salad (more people would eat kale if they had it like this) and everything else was good too. I'll be back!
This was a big win for a business lunch for my boss!
Great food. We were there in the afternoon and service was good. Had a mixup with my order but our server immediately fixed it and was super great about everything.
It was definitely a nice setting both inside and outside. The Cesar salad with salmon was delicious. I had the seared scallops on a bed of risotto with pesto. I was not wowed. The scallops were fresh but felt dish could have been seasoned a bit more. My friend had the Brick chicken with mashed potatoes and broccolini. Again, I felt the dish could have been seasoned a bit more. Chicken was tender but overall food was not especially memorable. Waitstaff and hostesses were all very accommodating and attentive. Might try again.
Food was good and lots of choices. Service was a little slow but that seems normal these days
I always have excellent experience at Circa locations. The chicken sandwich is my favorite menu item. It was delicious per usual.
Great food and service!
Food never disappoints!
The service wasn't as smooth as it could've been, but this was because we had 3 waitresses in the 3 hours we were there.
The staff are excellent and the food and drinks are fantastic.
I love this restaurant and have missed going there. You can't go wrong with the Brussels & blue appetizer!
Great food and value! Would definitely recommend the Foggy Bottom location
From the looks of it, we had the same idea that many others in the restaurant did. That is, dropping our child off to university and sharing a last meal together before leaving.
Making a reservation was easy with open table, and they were quick to accommodate our change from outdoor to indoor dining as it was quite hot.
Food was great and the kids really enjoyed the cheesecake!
Circa has a little something for everyone. Great place for brunch, date night, or a catch up.
The salads were fantastic especially with the ginger vinaigrette.
This was our 2nd visit to Circa. We really enjoyed both visits and the staff was super friendly. Looking forward to going back when we are in D.C. again.
Circa was recommended to us and it was amazing. Great food, service was outstanding and location was super convenient.
We moved our reservation to an earlier time (5pm) and restaurant was nice and quiet. Food was as spectacular as last time! Excellent service, tables nicely spaced apart. I love this place.
Visiting from out of town and couldn’t decide where to have dinner. Circa was a great choice! Food was delicious and moderately priced for DC. Drinks were great as well. We sat outside and there was great music being played,lots of hip hop. Got us prepped for our Friday night outing!
Dinner 8/20 - Many Thanks to the manager and staff who made our evening great offering to move us to a less busy area of the restaurant when they had two large groups arriving. Great problem solving and made our evening. Thank you
Good food and service. Good experience overall.
Delicious chicken and steak salads. Excellent service.
It our go to restaurant in the area for good food, service an ambiance. Definitely order the sliders.
Great tasting food served with care. Service is good too!
Love that that have covered outside dining area and diverse menu.
Interesting cocktail menu.
Some of the best food in the country!!
We really enjoyed this place. Service was great, food great. Good value. Nice place.
Absolutely delicious. Beautiful atmosphere, clean and COVID conscious, kind and attentive staff. I wish I remembered our servers name, because she was so friendly and outgoing. We were on our way back from our honey moon and her and her manager sent us a round of cava which was so sweet of them! We are not from the area, but next DC trip we will definitely be back !
The food was great. Our server was excellent. The drinks were great as well.
Service was excellent. Food was very good. But the noise level inside de the restaurant was so high we could hardly hear each other speak. The restaurant needs some fabric to baffle the sound.
Friendly, pleasant and efficient service. And good food.
Terrific service. Noisy but that was due to construction. A bit warm (we were tucked away near the restaurant on the porch); directly under a fan would be smart. Great food - sesame tuna and jumbalaya.
This was just a great dinner. Patio was perfect, service was great and both really enjoyed our dinners. My wife had the brick chicken and I had a perfectly cooked steak frites. If we were here longer would definitely go back.
Everything was fabulous and it was wine night!
Circa never disappoints.
The food was delicious. We had a birthday bread pudding for dessert. It was one of the best desserts I’ve had.
Food was good. Service okay had to send back food three times. But the manager made up for it.
