CIRCA at Foggy Bottom
We went for Saturday brunch at 11:15 and was seated immediately. By 11:30 it was almost packed, and after my first bite of the sliders, I could see why. The food is yummy!
Great apps. Good place to go near Lisner
Wonderful salad. Very tasty and interesting. We asked for a quiet table and they gave us one. One person in our party was late and they were very agreeable about that.
Would definitely recommend.
Circa @ Foggy Bottom NEVER disappoints. From the food, to the drinks to the wait staff!! Phenomenal!!!!
Excellent seating on the patio and overall service!
We visited this restaurant twice during our 5 night visit in D.C. It was conveniently placed (tight in the centre of Foggy Bottom) and the staff were very friendly, chatty and always wanting to make our visit as enjoyable as possible. The fact we came back a second time during a relatively short visit tells you everything you need to know about the place!
The service at this particular Circa is consistently poor.
Our server was amazing! Didn’t prefer the screaming baby, though. Food was delicious!
Loved the outdoor seating. Service friendly and not rushed. Save room for dessert—Nutella Trifle!
Food was unreal! The steak, seared tuna, and poke wraps...drool. Staff was very accommodating to me and my kids.
Great waitress, good deals on apps & drinks (delicious red wine). Perfect for the quick happy hour!
Great food, wonderful staff, great experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Their shotgun shrimp appetizer is the best. Also outstanding is the Parmesan Kale salad.
Great food, drinks, and the service was top notch. The four cheese mac was delicious and our server T was exceptional. She gave us great suggestions, as she has had everything on the menu, and her recommendations were spot on. The shuttle stop for the Kennedy Center, just across the street, was an added bonus! We will definitely be back!!
The food was delicious as always, but the wait time for the table and again for the food was much too long.
Food and server Clare were very good. Bartender not so great. Did not smile or engage.
Great take on sophisticated dishes with elevated flavors
Circa turned out to be perfect for dinner with our adult son on a Sunday night in DC. Service was very good. Excellent cocktails, food, presentation and ambiance. The only glitch we experienced was due to the Open Table app which wouldn't allow me to reserve for a party of 3 (kept defaulting to 2.) I requested party of 3 in the "special requests" field, but the restaurant never saw it and on the afternoon of our reservation, called to say we'd have to sit at an outdoor table. It sounded and felt a little like a punishment. Fortunately, the evening weather was mild.
Went here for an early dinner and the entire experience was outstanding. I ordered the jambalaya (best I’ve had in years), my wife and son ordered the flatbread pizzas (perfectly cooked), and my other son had the lobster ravioli (he’s still talking about it!). We also ordered the spinach dip as an appetizer, and it did not disappoint. We’ll be back for sure!!
The service and food were outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions as well as a fun night out with friends.
My husband and I loved what we ordered. Great food, great value. We highly recommend it.
It's a good spot for dinner - service is great! they have nice happy hour specials. I think it's a little overpriced for the food you get - nothing super fancy or innovative but well done and there's something for everyone on the menu. never been to the foggy bottom area so we wanted to explore and loved how close it was to the national mall. the dessert was probably the best part of the meal. I got the veg + quinoa bowl - yummy but a little small for an entree salad in my opinion.
Great food and super quick and nice service before a show at the nearby Kennedy Center.
We had a wonderful time, great food and excellent service!
Pleasant atmosphere, reasonable prices for good food, gracious service--what more could one want for a nice holiday brunch?
The food was well prepared and delicious. The service was prompt and attentive. Circa is a good pre-theatre dinner location.
Exemplary service from our waitress. Very tasty food (we had salmon, jambalaya, and burgers). Great value bottomless soft drinks policy.
If you love Happy Hours this is the place to be. Unfortunately we were pre-theater & did not know how noisy it would be outside. The hostess & waiters were super accomodating & located a quiet spot for us. We are CIrca fans from Arlington & found the food at this location seemed better & more well presented - the Quinoa Veggie Bowl. Overall Circa always delivers a nice experience & is affordable & the drink menu is very modern & eclectic.
The food and service were excellent. We have been here several times and have always been satisfied!
We all loved our meal!
My husband and I were in town for an event at George Washington University. We had an early dinner at Circa and were seated outside. We enjoyed the outside location. The server was pleasant and attentive and knowledgeable about the selections. Food was excellent and we were very pleased to have chosen Circa.
The waitress seemed to show her impatience or frustration when we were not ready to order.
Food and service both excellent and I really enjoyed my meal - if I had one comment, I’d ask the waiters to stop pouring your water for you (they leave a carafe on the table so you can do it yourself); a bit awkward.
recommend the bread pudding for dessert! the best bread pudding i've had! the bison blue cheese burger is really good also! highly recommend.
Service was inattentive and slow. And the place wasn’t even busy.
Food is excellent. Prices are terrific. Service is excellent.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the food, prices, and service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
