The food was excellent. Very tasty but a bit high priced. We enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for the wonderful ambiance

The food was mediocre; in my opinion, still not a good value with the Groupon. The prix fix menu was limited and one item offered wasn't available which made for even fewer choices.

A lot of food. Food is spicy(not too spicy) but good. Wine was nice. I would recommend and will return.

Waitstaff was great, but service was slow. Groupon 3 course dinner: Food is average, wine pretty bad and we couldn't upgrade. That said, we went with our 20-something kids and had a good time. The restaurant was dingy and could use a good cleaning (our table was sticky; my white napkin turned gray with grime when I wiped off my chair).

Our waiter was nice, but it took an hour to receive our appetizers and there were only two other tables in the entire place. Also the menu said nothing about my steak, veggies, and potatoes, being covered in jalapeños. I hate jalapeños.

The food was AMAZING. Every course blew my expectations away and then some. The music was also on point, a combination of feel good trance and remixed indie pop. I had such a great time. The only gripe was that the service took a bit too long.

Food was great service was good. Atmosphere was romantic. Only downside was the proximity of other tables, some what close. Great experience overall. They even accosted the groupon on valentines day.

About this Business

Circa's menus center around shareable small plates and high-end meats in decadent arrangements: Niman Ranch beef is clasped by bacon, cheese, and tarragon-dijon mayo in a pair of sliders, while organic chicken breast basks in creamy risotto. Mediterranean accents surface unpredictably throughout entrees in the form of za'atar seasoning, almonds, and figs. Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle found plenty to praise at the lounge's 2006 opening, including “thoughtful desserts” served by waitstaff who “seem to enjoy their jobs” and an atmosphere that “makes diners feel as if they're relaxing in a luxurious cocoon.” Designer Michael Brennan, of Cortez and La Table fame, is behind the latter. His work finds the dining room enfolded by a cocoa-colored design scheme and studded with the floral images of Neil Seth Levine, chosen for their evocation of both the stark lines of Ansel Adams and the fever dreams of Georgia O’Keeffe.
