Do not be deceived by the look and ambiance of this place. It is charming to look at, the menu is enticing. The service is beyond bad. The Management is beyond bad! Our visit started out fine. The one and ONLY waitress in the Bar side of this establishment was friendly enough to begin with. It was slow, the place... More

The appetizers were good. My boyfriend had a soup and said it was very good and his halibut was great. I had a ribeye steak and it was cooked perfectly but it was the worst piece of meat that I have ever had, it is to bad I don't like seafood because there were no complaints with any of those...

Took my sister and brother-in-law for dinner; Circa is a consistently great French gastropub located in the historic district of Savannah. I requested the downstairs room, it is so cozy and really cool. Our waiter was wonderful, attentive, funny, and gave us some great recommendations. Between the four of us we had the onion soup, coquilles st. Jacque and the... More

We really had a good time here, excellent service given it was a busy night. Chicken livers for an appetizer was a meal in itself, beef barley soup good and hearty, trout excellent, duck breast didn't ring my chimes, but good nonetheless.

My wife and I ended our three day visit with dinner here, sharing two entrees: trout and duck. Both were delicious. The trout was a generous portion with capers and perfectly cooked carrots. Delicate taste perfectly prepared. The duck Breast came with a delicious sauce and mashed potatoes with celery root. Yummy. Dessert was a generous scoop of house made... More

We wanted to go because the decor was authentic pre-WWII French bistrot. The food was divine. The ratatouille was out of this world. The halibut was outstanding (my GF), and I had the NY strip. It was fantastic. The waiter was top-notch. The host was great fun, and I had a chance to speak my French with him (his parents... More

A few weeks along the southeastern coast (Charleston, Beaufort, Ponte Vedra, Savannah) & a little OD'ed on fried seafood & green tomatoes, albeit delicious! A friend in Savannah recommended Circa 1875 & it was the perfect counterbalance. Very good cocktails, wine, food & service in a pretty setting. Highly recommend, would go back in a heartbeat.

Get a reservation because it is small. Service was absolutely stellar. Highly recommend the cheese board.
