We enjoyed our breakfast entrees at Circa on the patio. The service was good, but our server could have been a little more attentive. Although I did not consider this a stand out, I would recommend this restaurant and would go back again.

Had family member at George Washington University Hospital and this restaurant is across the street of the main entrance. Good menu with excellent choices. Service was outstanding and we were able to eat outside enjoying the weather.

My husband loves their burgers and fries. I enjoyed the grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad. I attend an annual meeting in DC and we always try to have lunch here.

We eat at Circa on many trips to DC. The outdoor tables are great in the summer. The inside seating is fine too. We've had burgers, fish, the quinoa salad with grilled chicken, and several appetizers, and they're all very good. Service is fast and...More

Alfonso was attentive and friendly, professional and non intrusive. Mexican corn chowder had flavor and tang. Parmesan kale salad somewhat stingy for $8.00. French toast was a delight. Hummus plate was a treat for the eyes. $51.00 w/o tip pricey but not unusual for the...More
