The Circular at The Hotel Hershey
The food was absolutely delicious! Their customer service was great! They have a wonderful wine selection. Their bread pudding was delicious by far my favorite thing!
As usual the highlight of our visit. I will most definitely be back
Halibut was good but lukewarm. Tables are so close together now when room is filled it’s really not as enjoyable as the circular used to be :(
This was a wonderful venue for our anniversary dinner. The food was excellent, and staff was very attentive.
The Circular Dining Room continues to provide very good food and outstanding service - in a tragically inelegant atmosphere. The restaurant’s lovely Tiffany windows remain, but washable placemats have replaced white table clothes, and a gimmicky iPad has replaced the leather bound wine list. Gone too is the dress code. Those seeking to celebrate special occasions or wow business clients should dine elsewhere, or prepare to eat their thirty or forty dollar entrees surrounded by tables of diners attired in flip flops, graphic-tee shirts, sneakers and hoodies.
Went for Sunday Brunch, got seating for 1:45, not my preferred. Food and atmosphere are pleasant and good for special occaison. A little noisy. Server was OK. Buffet had lots of stuff, and good. As we were seated near to closing, some items were disappearing toward dessert time.
Nothing special for the birthday guess. Disappointed. Food is ok. I miss the crab crawl legs
Everything was wonderful. It is a gorgeous restaurant and the service is great. The specialty drinks are really fun and delicious. The food and presentation were top notch.
Our meal was perfect in every way. The portion sizes were just right, and it was obvious that each dish had been carefully prepared to bring out the best flavors possible. The servers were attentive to our every need during the two hours we lingered over our meal as we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. Additionally, I've never had a better chocolate martini!
My family and I had an outstanding experience the food was amazing. We look forward to going back.
Amazing atmosphere...delicious food...awesome service...look forward to next time!!!
Restaurant definitely needs soft music. Martini pours weren’t enough to fill the glass which was disappointing since we just had full pours at Iberian Lounge. The $20 for 3-3ounce pours were not 3 ounces. Vegetables were over salted so we couldn’t finish them. Not overly impressed with restaurant which is a shame since the setting is so beautiful.
Plus side our waitress is lovely and attentive
Our main server Nate was exceptional, very friendly and knowledgable. The our other server Mason was very attentive. The food was delicious as usual.
Some of the best service we have had in recent memory. Food was excellent.
Everything was perfect...wait staff was attentive and the food was excellent. Worth every penny.
Having been to Circular Dining Room on Sunday October 20 with my husband and two friends we brought to celebrate 87th birthday, we were deeply disappointed. Our sitting was for 1:45. We waited twenty minutes for them to set the table and then when we started to get food, we found the food was depleted (3 eggs benedict very dried out), shrimp and scallops in chafing dish dried out, mashed potatoes dried out, chicken dried out (none of which was barely warm). Pumpkin soup barely warm. But to our real surprise, the dessert table had no fruit, no cheesecake, no pie, no cake. It was entirely made up of three little round things at the bottom of a large glass bowl with possibly powdered sugar crumbs on the bottom (were they little donut holes?), a chocolate creme brulee and it looked like puddings in layers in little plastic cups, as well as a key lime tartlet. I was so disappointed, not just for myself, but for my friends.
Usually go to Christmas Buffet and it is always marvelous. What has happened???? There were people coming in at 2:00 for sittings and I wondered what they were getting.
Definitely not 10% worth the money which we spent. And, the bill was over $200.
As far as Friday November 1 at 12:00 with six of us--better than Sunday, Oct. 20. Dessert bar was full and had lots of choices. We felt the food in the chafing dishes was not very warm but tolerable. One of the girls had the seafood chowder and she recommended it. The ambiance is always nice and it did not disappoint on Friday. We were surprised at how few people were there but maybe there were not conferences being held that week.
I would probably try it one more time to see if the October 20 was a fluke. It sure was a lot of money for NOTHING.
Hope Hotel Hershey is not going down the tubes as far as the CIrcular Dining Room. But, not sure.
Had a friend tell me after I told her about our October 20 experience that she also had bad experience. I sure would hate to not go anymore.
The food was great, but unfortunately the service was poor. It took almost an hour for us to get our entrees and the restaurant wasn’t very busy. We mentioned this to our server. The manager came over and said the food would be coming soon; no apology and no comps for the inconvenience. We were especially disappointed because it was a business meeting with out of state guests.
Simply the best. Look forward to going every time we can.
The Circular is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions and family events. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday and had great service and a great meal...as usual. Thanks to the Circular at the Hotel Hershey for being a star in the upscale restaurant scene in the central Pennsylvania area.
It is the best buffet I have ever had. The room is beautiful and the wait staff was great.
We have been going to the Circular for several years and have never had any complaints. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from and the desserts are incredibly delicious as well. This is one place we look forward to going to several times a year because we know that we are in for a treat every time.
My wife and I enjoy Sunday brunch at the Circular an average of twice a month. This time was outstanding.
My husband and I totally enjoyed the elegant and wonderful Sunday brunch. We loved the selections of meat and seafood, and the desserts, as ever, were fabulous. The Moroccan carrots were amazing. It was a special meal for us.
Excellent service and dinner!
Girls night out. Staff was friendly, helpful and on top of everything. We had a lovely time.
We were not notified before our reservation that the only thing that would be available was the buffet and we didn’t enjoy many of the dishes that were put . Would of liked to pick exactly what i wanted to eat
The Lunch Buffet at The Circular at The Hotel Hershey never disappoints. There are always plenty of selections to suit anyone's dietary palate. And oh, those delectable Hershey desserts! YUM!
It is a great place for a special celebration or special evening out for dinner. Walking around the hotel is great with the gardens and fountains.
I love the Circular Dining Room, but this time all three of our steaks were overcooked. Drastically over cooked. They did ask us to cut them and be sure they acceptable, but we were on a very tight schedule and couldn't afford the time to send them back. But otherwise, everything was great.
It is always a pleasure to dine at the brunch. The food and service was excellent . The atmosphere is relaxed yet special.
Great spot for an enjoyable evening out in Hershey!
Staff was excellent with my party!
My 50th birthday celebration was excellent! James (water) and Britney (server) were great!
Went to The Circular for my birthday. What an outstanding meal! We started with the cheese plate, then had the Chicken Confit and Halibut entrees. Both excellent. Nicely plated. Shared the Milk Chocolate Gingerbread Torte for dessert. Wasn't sure I would like chocolate and gingerbread, but it actually accents the rich chocolate flavor. Thanks to The Circular for a great meal and evening.
We didn’t get the window seat I requested.
We always enjoy dining at the Circular when we stay at the Hotel Hershey. The menu is always creative and changes with each season, so it never gets old. Every dish is prepared with care and is quite flavorful and tasty. The chef's really know what they are doing. The wine list is very extensive, with both imported and domestic selections. The Chocolate martini's are wonderful! Service is excellent and personalized.
Lovely Friday lunch buffet on the occasion of my youngest daughters 16th birthday... the food and service were superb!
Everything was done right. From the service to the food, it was a night to remember. Yvonne our server did a fantastic job.
Wait staff was exceptional, both friendly and informative. Made us feel very comfortable. Elegant setting. All food courses were prepared and served excellently. Will look forward to returning.
Car week. Yvonne is the best waitress around and makes my experience here great. Ray Consoli is the best sommelier I have experienced. They are part of my family.
