Excellent service and meal. Interior a bit to dark for my me but friendly staff. My husband and I had the Wednesday night special: hanger steak. Presentation and taste was wonderful. Recommend this restaurant to all.

We had an awesome dinner at Circa 1922 with family. We made reservations for a Friday night and it was packed, but we were sat right away. Two of us got tapas (the spicy crispy shrimp, market vegetables, beets and blue cheese, and mushroom bruschetta)...More
