CIRCA at Navy Yard
Great food, great service! This is right across the street from Homewood Suites and a good place to unwind after a busy day of meetings.
Overall would recommend.. food great but service just average.
Service was so friendly. They were happy to cater to my son's picky taste.
Good quick meal before the game. Chicken sandwiches are very good.
I could see good bones here but definitely not quality execution. It seemed as though they were understaffed - especially for a Sunday brunch when the Nats had a home game (and I believe there was a home soccer game too). Our waitress had some tables inside (like ours) as well as on the patio. Overall seemed as though people were all over and yet also not present. Everyone was nice but just not on their game nor as good as they should be. Definitely think attention needs to be made to staffing - quantity, locations, and general training.
Every part of the experience was rxcellent, except for a few tiny insects flying around our table, landing on our menus and appetizer plates. Not flies, not mosquitos,not fruit flies. Tiny, like gnats. Still, we would come back again because overall it was great andcespecially convenient for Nats game w/ happy hour pricing. In and out in less than an hour.
Table wobbled which made enjoying my food harder
The Staff is Outstanding!
We had great food and great service right before the Nats game
Before Nats game. Excellent find of great food near the ballpark.
Food amazing, service excellent!
We’re huge fans of your restaurant group, visiting Open Road weekly. Had a good experience at CIRCA a couple weeks ago. Friday’s service was very, very disappointing. Server didn’t check on our table after food delivery until we had literally bites left. Couldn’t get water refills or additional beverages. Lost you sales.
Favorite pre-Nats dining spot with older teen kids.
Everyone and everything was amazing!
I live in Maryland and don’t know the Navy Yard area. I made a reservation at Circa because it was close to Nationals Park, where we were going after dinner. You can’t get much more convenient than Circa if you’re going to a ballgame. However, there are a lot of equally close restaurants. Circa had an excellent rating on Yelp and our experience was in line with the rating. The staff was very friendly. The seating (inside) was comfortable enough (they have booths and tables). I had the burger and my son had the flatbread pizza. Tasty! I had a Blue Point Toasted Lager on draft - very good. My son had a porter. Not a huge beer selection but sizable enough with the combination of bottles and on tap. I didn’t look much at the wines or cocktails but plenty of tempting choices. Bottom line is that we had a fine time and I would go back again.
Excellent service and delicious food! I have been at Circa for lunch and happy hour. It has always been a great experience
We were greeted by hostess and seated immediately Food was fantastic! Waitress was professional and explained the restaurant and their locations . New and clean restaurant. Lobster ravioli with shrimp was amazing. Salmon was cooked to our liking. It was delicious. I would highly recommend. It was our last night in DC. Close to our hotel. So glad we didn’t go to fast food place.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the service as well as the Lobster Ravioli and Sauteed Shrimp and Blackened Atlantic Salmon. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
So many menu options i definitely will return!
Thank you so much for joining us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great staff, food, and service.
Thank you so much for joining us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Food was good although my turkey burger was pretty salty. Service was good but felt we had to wait a bit longer than anticipated given the restaurant was not too busy. There was a mix up on splitting the ccard but staff handled very well and all was worked out. Would definitely go back again.
Brian, thank you so much for joining us and for your feedback. We will be sharing your feedback with our team regarding the service and Turkey Burger. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food and the service was auhmazing. Loved it and will come again.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the food and service. We hope to see you again soon!
My girlfriends and I always get together during DC Restaurant Week to try a new place. Circa did not disappoint! The location and the service were great and the food was outstanding. A couple of us got the Restaurant Week special and others ordered off menu but we all raved about our appetizers, meals and drinks. The food was so good that I can't wait for my next chance to visit. Thanks for making our girls night out fantastic!
Kelli, thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed Q's service as well as restaurant week! We look forward to seeing you and your girlfriends again soon!
Service was great! Food was presented well and tasted good too!
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the food and service. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Best food around the Navy Yard. It is consistently yummy. Great service too. Unfortunately it is not near the water but it does have both inside and outside seating. When you make a reservation you can even pick inside or outside.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the food and service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The best customer service ever; the entire staff was FANTASTIC!
Yes, I would recommend to a friend. We went for restaurant week 2019. I got the brussel sprouts (it was delicious) and a very good portion size. For my second course, I got the burger and fries. It was ok (nothing amazing and kind of underwhelming). Last, I had the strawberry shortcake. It was pretty good. I go to Circa about twice per month. It's a great restaurant. I recommend the calamari and shrimp or salmon salad, but I wouldn't recommend them for restaurant week.
Nicole, thank you for joining us and for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The steak sliders were amazing! Also the scallops were fantastic. My companions enjoyed the lettuce wraps but those were not my favorite. Highly recommend.
Linda, we are so glad you enjoyed the Seared Scallops and Petite Filet Sliders. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Booked a reservation (not needed) and showed up when it wasn't super crowded. Service was *terrible*, just really awful. It took ~45 minutes to get calamari + 2 beers. We didn't see our waiter for the first 10 minutes, had to ask another server to find her at one point. Understandable if the place was completely packed, but it was not.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so sorry to hear about your experience and will be following up with you over private message.
My friends and I met up for brunch on a Sunday. We missed our reservation time due to parking being super difficult to find. We walked in and were sat very quickly outside on the patio which was great! Thank you Circa for still accommodating us!
It was perfect weather and the patio had nice views of Navy Yard.. The food here is fresh and delicious! I had the Chesapeake Benedict, I loved it! The whole menu has pretty good prices, Mimosas were only $4 (they have bottomless mimosas as well for $19) ...service was good, our server seemed a little busy but he was still pretty attentive..we definitely enjoyed ourselves and we will definitely be back!
Stephanie, thank you for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed brunch with us and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Wonderful food! Love the ambiance of their place. Not too crowded or loud. The salmon was amazing!
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the Blackened Salmon. We hope to see you again soon!
This was our first time to visit this location. The food was very good. I had the burger, my wife had the chicken sandwich, and our friend had the salmon salad. The food took a whole to come out. We watched many other tables arrive after us and get their food before us. The service this particular day was lacking. I hope it improves in the future.
The tuna poke nachos are to die for! We also had the caesar salad with blackened salmon. The salad itself was just ok, but the salmon was very well-seasoned. The Fuji apple shrimp salad was delicious! The dressing was light and refreshing, with a hint of mint. The salad had plenty of scrumptious Shotgun shrimp. I highly recommend it!
We are so glad you enjoyed the Tuna Poke Nachos, Caesar Salad with Blackened Salmon, Fuji Apple Shrimp Salad, and Shotgun Shrimp. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Stopped in before the DC United game. Several fans were there and staff accommodated is all well
Thank you so much for joining us before heading to the DC United game! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Awesome followup dining experience after not so great initial visit! Again, preparation and quality of food was excellent! What was lacking during our initial visit was service related that was more than corrected and made up for during subsequent visit. Timely and personal attention by both the server and manager on duty. We will be repeat customers.
Richard, thank you so much for giving us a second chance! We are so glad you enjoyed the service much more this time around. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
WE try and dine at Circa, Navy Yard.....twice a week....definitely once a week. Your servers and hostesses are extremely courteous/kind/attentive.....making our experience there always a good one.
Tony, thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoy the service and look forward to seeing you again soon!
They were so accommodating to my substitution request. I really appreciated it. I was able to enjoy my meal and not cheat on my diet.
Danielle, thank you so much for joining us! We hope to see you again soon!
It was my first time visiting and I was taking my BFF out to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant was very nice, the server was outstanding and the food was delicious. I'll definitely be going back!
Thank you so much for joining us to celebrate your best friend's birthday! We hope to see you again soon!
Food was great! Service was a little slow and wasn't sure who our server was.
