I dined here with a friend during a business trip. It was a 10 minute walk from the Georgetown Marriott. Very nice menu, great appetizers and mains. Drinks were average, but not overpriced. Easy decision for a quick informal meal with a friend or on a date.

My lunch companion and I both remembered an earlier meal at Circa (on different occasions) when we had a wonderful grilled chicken breast salad. If both of us remembered the same dish, it had to be noteworthy indeed. Not on the menu today. I can't imagine why such a successful dish was no longer served. Today's meal (eaten at the... More

I loved my rib sliders, but my husband did not love his flatbread. It barely had any cheese. The service was great.

Amazing food, so good we went two nights in a row! The spiced Sangria was out of this world, and packed just the right punch with it's taste. Food was very fresh and clearly artisan made. Tuna Wontons were amazing, Hummus was very good with an extra olive oil splash and fresh & warm pita bread & veggies. Filet sliders... More

My daughter loved the steak and frites -- the latter are crispy and tasty! Two in our party had jambalaya. Warning that the sausage is... More

My companion had a delicious salad. We took a breather and talked and relaxed. Solid and professional waitstaff. We did not drink but a full bar was... More

A great casual restaurant in a great location. Warm and cozy atmosphere with good food. I had the Steak Frites which was prepared well and quite delicious. Good beers on tap and a very accommodating staff.

I had a Waldorf salad. It was delicious and the service was good. But the music was a little loud. Mat friends for lunch. It was convenient, right across the street from the metro.
