The room is beautiful. I thought the large windows were open they were so clean. Cocktails delish, food extraordinary and dessert was quite a yummy concoction. We love historic buildings and the Hotel Hershey is magnificent and The Circular was well worth the price.

Something was wrong when we visited this restaurant as hotel guests on the occasion of our wedding anniversary. Frankly, the service was off. Not inattentive, just not well put together. To make a long story short, we waited forever (an hour or so) for a...More

Waitstaff was professional and the food was excellent. Enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. The restaurant was busy and is a big open space but was not noisey.

One of the best pieces of Salmon I’ve ever had and the chocolate soufflé is worth the wait! The atmosphere is super classy and this was my favorite restaurant in Hershey.

Lamb chops were some of the best I've ever eaten. Husband's filet was also great! We loved our meals and our waiter was very patient with us in recommending the perfect wine to pair with each.
