Good service, average food for the price. The restaurant needs a good makeover.
We had the most incredible experience! The food was exquisite, the best we have ever eaten! The wine was also delicious!
We will definitely be back!!
It was an amazing experience. The salted caramel butter served with the sourdough was astonishingly good as a starter and the surprise appetizer really brought my expectation to the next level. The cod with eggplant and bok choy had an Asian twist with suit our tastes pretty good. The deserts are so well presented. In the strawberry ice cream served with both dry and fresh strawberries, which is a nice surprise. The portion is very generous as well. Will definitely come back.
Entree was pretty average, minimal options and not a fan of the dessert.
Food was plentiful and delicious. The service team friendly and helpful. 1876 is a dining experience which I highly recommend.
Food was nice, but some entrees lacked of seasoning
Service very good and friendly
My partner and I were served by very helpful servers and the food was great. They even replaced my entree because I preferred another one. Absolutely 100% recommend this restaurant if you are in the area!! Excellent service and food!!
We had a beautiful dinner for my husbands birthday and our meal was perfect and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. All the staff were very nice and welcoming and very attentive when needed.
Beautiful dining room space.
Service was attentive
Food was sumptuous
Tonight was low level wedding food. Very disappointing given reputation. I understand the business has changed hands in the last 12 months. Steak and Quail both dry and chewy. Impression was that it was all about the beautiful setting and someone forgot to focus on the menu and execution.
A great experience, fantastic food with great service. A really good experience overall!
The food was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was great too.
Staff were very lovely and kinda, food was delicious
We had a lovely experience. The service was wonderful. I'm not a 3 course person. We would have preferred the option to select 2 course or 3 course.
Food was on the whole really lovely and well presented. The waitress was a lovely lady but clearly overrun, so staffing was an issue, which you just can't do at a restaurant with this price point. We poured our own wine and food was brought out without knowing which table it belonged to. Not exactly a huge issue but disappointing for an anniversary dinner and when you are paying $300 for two.
Trent our waiter was excellent +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Great service and a lovely ambience. Made our anniversary special
Loved it. I can’t eat three courses so had to forgo the dessert. I would have preferred a cheaper two course menu. But the soft shell crab was amazing and the fish excellent and perfectly cooked.
Our second visit to Circa 1876, the food and service were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble.
The only downside was the background guitar/piano music, which became a bit monotonous.
We went to Circa 1876 for our wedding anniversary.
The service we received from Brent was impeccable. He was fantastic with providing insight to wines and recommendations.
The food was delicious and presented so well!
Our whole experience at Circa was outstanding and we will definitely be going back as soon as we can.
Thank you Brent and all the chefs and staff for making our anniversary extra special!
I came to dinner with a group last week to Circa 1876. I want to say a big thank you to your staff for creating such an enjoyable experience for our group. The food was phenomenal and the service was impeccable. We were late and the staff were so accommodating and were able to explain the menu and go above and beyond for our group.
This was a standout experience. I enjoyed this with my wife and two friends. The food, service and atmosphere were standout. Loved it.
Truly a wonderful dining experience.
Loved the venue. So unique and true to character. The service was impeccable but friendly, not stuffy.
And the food...sublime.
We will be back!
This was our second time at Circa and as always the food was amazing and the staff were too, particularly Karen who recommended a wine that my partner and I enjoyed a lot ! She was very nice and her service was outstanding. We definitely will make sure to come back every time we visit Hunter Valley.
Fantastic restaurant with amazing food and service
Our whole table (7 people) thought the food was fantastic
Just fantastic meals,plus a few extras treats 👍👍
If we new it was a set menu we would have not booked.
The restaurant from an aesthetic perspective is absolutely gorgeous and the food was some of the best I’ve eaten anywhere.
Great food, excellent quality, attentive service by very knowledgeable staff. Probably the best restaurant I've visited in the Hunter Valley.
Special night made more special with attentive staff, service and atmosphere.
I have visited twice in the last six months, and each visit has been very special. The restaurant is located inside a historic, lushly furnished, character-filled cottage. The service is exceptional, and the food is wonderful. Beautiful ingredients are carefully balanced and meticulously prepared and plated, and the wine list is wonderful. Can't wait to return!
Beautiful food presented and tasted incredible! Definitely would recommend to anyone.
Enjoyed our dinner, all courses were well presented and delicious.
We were very disappointed with the food quality.
Amuse bouche & entrées were not up to fine dining standards.
Prices were exorbitant for the quality of the food served.
Mains saved were above average.
We cannot recommend this restaurant.
It was perfwction from start to finish
Very nice restaurant at a wonderful .. been there a couple of times and thoroughly enjoy it
Amazing food, service and ambience. My second time there and will be back. Highly recommend!!!
Absolutely amazing dinner, service and setting... we will definitely be back
