Circa 1875 is a very busy place and it was obvious why. Our waiter made the experience memorable. His suggestions and personal attention despite how busy they were was appreciated. My highest recommendation is the trout! Amazing flavor. Be forewarned that the desserts are big...More

We had onion soup, escargot, steak frittes, and scallops. Nothing was bad, but nothing knocked my socks off. If you are looking for a different restaurant that you haven't tried, worth going to.

The food and service were good. The decor is pretty. We ate in the cellar which was nice but dark. We followed dinner with a drink on the bar side which is a nice, relaxed environment. Reservations are recommended.
