    Food and service were superbe. Enjoyed the crushed ice condiment served with the oysters, very nice and unexpected. The salad my wife had was exceptional. For entrees, my wife had the salmon served on the lobster mash potatoes also delicious; the mash potatoes were outstanding; I had the seared scallops served with lobster ravioli and roasted tomatoes, very tasty, well thought out, great flavor palette, the flavors were well-balanced; perfect. It was a little loud, not bad, a bit of a distraction. We were seated on the balcony; which was private. It's a little claustrophobic up there due to the ceiling height. The lack of art on the dark colored walls enhances this feeling; a couple of long narrow mirrors would also help open up the space. Also, there were areas of the wall that needed painting at the back-of-chair level, a chair rail would fix that issue; obviously a constant problem. The above only slightly diminished what my wife and I deemed a wonderful night with a well curated delicious spectacular meal.

    We arrived to the restaurant and was greeted by the hostess and immediately brought to our table. We were at the table fifteen minutes before we were greeted by our waitress. Our waitress seemed unimpressed with our order including no cocktails (I’m pregnant) and we barely saw our waitress there after. Our food was brought out by runners and by the time our waitress ever checked on us we were almost done. She was condescending in asking us if we wanted refills when she did communicate with us and you could tell she was much more engaged with those that had bar drinks. The portion for my meal (the chicken) was incredibly small. If the service was amazing, the value and very noisy environment would make up for it however the service was subpar.

    It was my son's 16th birthday! The waitress was wonderful. She appears to love what she does, took time to greet my kid and no rush in taking our order. I could have dress nicer in this restaurant looks posh to me.

    It was a Saturday night so we didn't expect a quiet restaurant but it was extremely loud with multiple large parties and loud music. It took a long time to seat the 30 person party just ahead of us which meant we got our table almost 30 minutes late. It was frustrating. But then the food came very quickly which helped us to feel better.

    Great experience. One of my fav Providence restaurants. Duo of duck was a delicious entree. Nice selection of reasonably priced wine by the glass. Trendy bar scene. Short walk to waterfire if you are dining on one of the lighting dates.

    I went to Circe for my 14th wedding anniversary last night.........first let me say the food and drinks were amazing. I have absolutely no problem with that. I'm having an issue with the managements integrity. Let me explain. On Circe's website it reads if you are going to the theater (which I was) before or after the show you receive a 10% discount. When I asked the server why I did not receive the theater discount, she said she had to go discuss it with her manager. The manager said they were not doing that promotion........so why is it still on the website? That's false advertisement, lazy management, and terrible customer service. If you don't want to offer the promotion simply remove it from your website. You should honor it until you put the effort in and take it down from YOUR website. You had the opportunity to do the right thing and declined. Sadly ended our dining experience on a sour note.

    It is our favorite restaurant to go to before the theater and just about any time. Did take out during Covid but glad to be back in person and glad the staff is all vaccinated which makes it feel safer. The food and service are always great! And when restaurant weeks happen it is absolutely the best menus in town!

    The waiter was great. The food and drinks were very good. That being said, we waited an hour an a half for our food. Our reservation was for 6:15. We arrived a little before that and our order was taken by 6:15. The waiter asked if we had tickets to see Pretty Woman at PPAC at 8:00 which we did. We continued to wait and wait and after speaking to the manager our food finally arrived at 7:35. I immediately asked for the bill and a box since there was no way we could eat all the food in 10 minutes. We literally had to inhale half of it and hit the road running. PPAC does not allow left overs to be brought in (understandably) so we had to throw it into the trash can and were seated with about 5 seconds to spare.The waiter was very apologetic throughout the evening and had also spoken to the manager. Clearly it was not his fault but they weren't able to give us an explanation for the delay. Two drinks were taken off the bill but it was small compensation for an expensive, terrible experience.

    Food was good but not exceptional. The prices were higher than they should have been. The bar scene appeared to be a hook up zone for the 20 something crowd. Enjoyed the experience but it is not a place I’d frequent.

    Circe has a great atmosphere, modern but not cold. The service was impeccable, very friendly but efficient. Incredible cocktails. The dishes were beautufully presented and tasted fantastic too. We appreciated that this is one of the rare places where you can have an espresso after dinner. Thank you for a memorable dinner!

    The atmosphere was very loud and the tables on both sides of ours were very close. The entree portions were minimal yet somewhat tasty. Sadly our appetizer of deviled eggs were 3 halves with a bland filling and a chip of bacon on top. We were celebrated my husband's 51st birthday, and were hoping for a somewhat romantic dinner. What we recieved was high priced "pretty" run of the mill meal on trendy plates. I wouldn't suggest a visit.

    The evening would have been delightful had it not been for the reverberating loudness! We could barely hear each other. We sat in a wonderful booth with low ceilings in the front, to the left of the front door. The two story bar area is where the majority of the sound emanates from. Unlike other restaurants there appeared to be no sound absorbing ceiling tiles. The restaurant was also very cold. We and other patrons had to return to our cars for additional clothing.

    Had a great evening and dinner at Circe. I requested a specific table upstairs and the hostess was able to accommodate which made the night that much better. The drinks were amazing and our bartender Josh was fantastic. Vincent, our server did a great job recommending dinner specials and wine. All around great night at Circe.
