This place is a super pick for night out, special occasion. It has a variety of options for even the pickiest eater - but don't expect ordinary fare. Everything has a unique twist- in a good way! You won't be disappointed!

Ok so I’m partial. I’m local and we are so fortunate to have Circa here in Newport News. If it were in Charlottesville or Richmond you couldn’t get a reservation for months. Try it you will like it!!!

This restaurant is amazing! Food was excellent, as were the drinks and our server was great. Definitely a good place to go for a couples night out or celebration. I wish I could afford to eat here every week.
