    First time at Circe. The atmosphere was elegant and the menu was enticing. Our hostess was welcoming and seated us right away. Our server, Alessia, was wonderful: entertaining, attentive, offered recommendations. She was delightful to talk to and made the dining experience even more enjoyable. The Pumpkin Gnocci was plentiful, tasty, the texture was just right. The combined flavors and ingredients (roasted cauliflower, butternut squash, spiced raisins) all blended together well. Alessia assured us the Short Rib did not need a steak knife; she was right! Fork-tender, melted in my mouth. Wonderful meal. Great pairing of wine. We were enthralled with the "Chandelier" martini experience that another table ordered near us. A truly memorable dining experience. Highly recommend.

    `Went to Circe for restaurant week in Providence. We were impressed with the choices on the menu and had the Short Ribs and Wagyu Bolognese, both of which were wonderful. Ou server Alex was attentive and friendly. Lasly the setting was truly awesome. Very contemporary and yet romantic. Highly recommended!

    We went for the restaurant week menu. The squash soup came out cold and was disappointing. Everything else we had was delicious. The best meal I've had in awhile. Drinks were very good as well. Tables were too close together but other than that, it was fantastic!

    Went during restaurant week before a show at PPAC. The choices were an excellent value. The service started off excellent but waned during our visit, could be due to staffing although the restaurant wasn’t particularly busy. We even had two waiters (one training). A runner delivered our mains and nobody followed up to offer cheese for pasta or pepper. Dining companion ate her pasta with her salad fork since silverware wasn’t replaced correctly, even after asking. Also appetizer course not cleared. Although I think the dishes were well executed they all lacked seasoning which was a shame. Did love the vibe and would definitely give the Greenwich location a try when in the area. Could have just been due to Covid but service was definitely uneven but happy to try again and support local businesses.

    Server was super friendly and so lovely. However I asked if the salmon was wild or farm raised and she said “wild.” I ordered it but I did not get wild salmon. It was clearly farm raised. It was tasty but it’s like expecting cashmere only be handed an acrylic cotton blend. Not the same. Ambiance and atmosphere are great we had a great time and didn’t want to give our sever a hard time but wild v farm raised is a big deal. Please educate the staff. Thanks.

    Another fantastic meal experience. They saw my table request and made it happen. I really appreciate that they are thoughtful and accommodating. Helpful hint: If you want the duck, call ahead to see if they have it. Two weeks in a row I went for duck, wasn't available. They have plenty of other great dishes, but when your heart is set on duck...ya kinda want the duck!!

    It was my first time there and I will definitely return! My friends and I were going to a show at PPAC so we were pressed for time and our server was so understanding. Everything came out quickly! She even offered to put our leftovers in the fridge until after the show, which I thought was above & beyond! The food was amazing! We sat upstairs at a nice corner table by the window which was so nice. If I had any complaint, it would be that we were right by a speaker so it was tough to hear our server…especially with the mask on. But that’s the times we’re in :) Next time I come, I’ll make sure to have more time to spend there.

    was rather busy but our server and the bar moved fast. Food always good. Charcuterie board is not to be missed. And whoever created that Rhody Old Fashioned, thank you. Also, their free valet setup and regular guy are the best.

    Circe is one of my favorite restaurants. It is a little pricy and I would have ordered differently if I knew the prices of the specials. That should be something the waitstaff share with the customers. Also, I sat on the second floor for the first time and the music was too loud and sounded like club music versus dinner music.

    Could have gone on an off night (may have been a company holiday party or something at the bar), but the environment was quite hectic for a dinner place. Their hours online also do not reflect the hours of the kitchen (and beyond). Waitress was nice enough, though, and the food was really really great.

    Service was great, drinks were great, and reasonably priced. The food was good and it looked amazing, it was just a little bland (other than the overly 'truffled' mashed potatoes). A fun restaurant.
