The new owners renamed it, changed the menu and turned up the lights. The decor is very green looking. Staff friendly and the food was good however I do miss Circa 59.

I had an amazing wedge salad with spicy maple bacon glaze and the Ahi Tuna tartar was UNREAL. THe raspberry pancakes and huevos rancheros were great for breakfast too

Not a lot of choice on the menu and quite expensive. Plenty of tables as it's not very busy, nice decor.

What a letdown this place is. Went for lunch and service is dreadful. Slow. Took forever to notice us, even though a hostess seated us. We actually wondered if they'd closed after she seated us. Then two burgers took nearly 50 minutes!? Only 3 other tables in the place. I've had entire dining experiences last less than that. There for... More

The restaurant was half empty but the service was nonexistent for the first 30 minutes. It seemed that we had to ask for everything 3 times - that was the magic number. The waiters were invisible and we finally got a little bit of help from the barmaid who was (the unfortunate soul) walking incidentally by. Finally I asked for... More

Over a 2-night stay, we ate at this restaurant four times. Over two lunches, dinner, and brunch, our large group unanimously voted The Food as the best part of The Riviera. Not only was the selection large and every single item delicious, the service was perfect. Highly recommend!

The staff was great from the manager to the waiter. We loved all we ordered especially the braised short ribs! We were staying at the Riviera anyway so this was very convenient for us. Happy that we were not disappointed.

We enjoyed our dinner very much - great mushroom risotto, beet salad and pork with peach sauce. Yum! We were too full for dessert. Service was attentive - and the ambience wonderful.

I have always looked forward to our annual visit to Circa but was disappointed. First off the menu and specials on their website is obsolete and misleading as the menu has been redone. I get that things change but they need to update their website. The menu had a typo in it which was compounded when the waiter mispronounced poivre... More

It's all about cravings. Satisfying the ones you have, and creating sensory experiences that are totally unexpected. Fine dining is re-defined in Circa 59, taking the stage with eco-friendly fish, delicious premium cuts of meat, locally grown farm fresh produce and "sharables" you'll have difficulty, well, sharing.
