Passion you can taste. This place is one of my top favorites for a good reason. The chefs are skilled beyond measure and the... flavors are exquisite. Perfectly balanced. The bartender I'd one of the best in the area I have found and the espresso martiniis out of this world perfection. A must go for any food appreciator in this area! I've now been twice and can't wait to go againand see what new flavors they put on their menu! Owner/head chef is wonderful and inviting and you can tell the skill theyexpect from their other chefs and kitchen staff and you can tell the servers are happy to be there. By far one of the bestrestaurant experiences I've ever had! Read more

I will be back! Highly recommend you make a reservation. The feel reminds me of the 20s, the menu is small, the drinks are an... experience themselves and the service was extraordinary. My husband surprised me with a date night after hearing about it from afriend. It’s tucked in a cute area and has outdoor seating. Phenomenal for a date night! Read more

The lighting is dim in the restaurant so forgive my darkened picture. However it makes for a wonderful date night or... birthday(really i would use any reason to go here). The Bartender was fantastic, very knowledgeable and attentive. He was halfof the experience. The drinks are absolutely delicious as well as the food. The atmosphere is quaint and personal. Food can be abit pricey but it's worth it. Update: While still a lovely place I would say the least favorite part of my meal this time wasthe steak. The temperature was wrong and boy was it tough(same for my guests steak). I even heard the table beside me saying thesame thing about the steak they ordered. Everything else was amazing, the pork belly melts in your mouth. The wait staff areattentive and friendly(maybe just skip the steak). Read more

What a great experience!! It started out with a phone call to confirm my reservation and the gentleman asked me if it was... alright if he asked for my guest's name. The entire team knew our names and treated my wife like a queen. Every person of theCirca team worked seamlessly in concert with each other to provide the best dining experience I've had in years. It was evidentby thier interaction with other guests that they have many, many returning customers, and for good reason. The food! Phenomenaland the presentation was exquisite. This is definitely a special place with great food, drink, ambience, and an attentiveprofessional staff. Read more

What can I say about this place. From the time I entered till the time I left everything was amazing. The staff was welcoming... the place is small and intimate. I took my girlfriend and some friends for her birthday and I don't think I could have chosen abetter place and atmosphere. The food was amazing. The bison meatloaf and the New York strip was everything. The drinks, man thedrinks was perfect. If you want a date night with your significant other stop by Circa 1918. You won't be disappointed.
