Absolutely the best lamb chops (sourced from Pennsylvania) that I've eaten anywhere in my travels and beautifully plated. My husband's mushroom crepes, recommended by our waiter, were very good too. Wonderful sides and homemade breads. Service and setting are superb, including the lovely, European-style gardens...More

In a fancy hotel, this pretty restaurant with good service is badly let down by the kitchen. Of the 5 dishes sampled by my wife and me at a family celebration dinner, only the chocolate soufflé was worth eating. The asparagus in the asparagus salad...More

We ate here while at a conference. I had the Tuna and Buffalo Cauliflower. It was absolutely delicious. The service was first class. I would definitely eat there again.

We had a great dinner at The Circular! We dine here two or three times a year and are never disappointed. The quality is very consistent. We always order the petit filet and salmon.....both are delicious! Be sure to try the cocoa dusted scallop appetizer....yummmmmm!
