Packed for Sunday brunch over Pride weekend, but the wait staff was great. Excellent hamburger and blackened chicken mango salad. Drinks were small for the price, but well made.

Nice friendly atmosphere, food came promptly, and was hot. The service was attentive. Price was fair and we would go back for a casual dinner.

Called in twice during a recent visit to DC and really enjoyed the food and the service. The Cobb lettuce wrap was my favourite. Food is well presented and tasty.

My wife and I shared appetizers - Brussels sprouts and sliders. Both were terrific. I had a strawberry mojito, which was also delicious.

Does anyone have suggestions on what to order if you eat a vegan diet? Or is it not very possible to do so at Circa?

I think you could work your way thru the menu to create a nice meal. I loved the baked and roasted Brussels sprouts. You just might have to ask the chef to modify. Look at their menu online.
