On a Sisters Celebration Weekend in Savannah - at recommendation of a tour guide we stopped in for cocktails. The spicy Bloody Mary and Hippie Juice were fabulous! Highly recommend both beverages. Bartenders were exceptionally friendly and attentive.

Escargot and Duck are the requirements for my wife's birthday meal and Circa was spot on for both. We were seated in the downstairs which was quieter than the bustle of the street level dining. A nice spot facing the wine cellar with French music...More
