Wonderful food and service. Love this place, especially for dinner before walking down the street to the PCT for a play.

Atmosphere was okay, service was good, but it was hard to hear across the table. A little close to the other tables.

Love, love, love this place. (Wish it was on this side of the tunnel!) We have been following Chad (Executive Chef) around for years at the various restaurants in Hampton Road that were fortunate enough to have his creative talents in the kitchen! Circa 1918 is a quaint little place that is always bustling with energy and cozy ambiance. We... More

We are vegetarians, and they are always happy to make adjustments to dishes for us. This is truly one of our favorites. Kip at the bar is one of the best I have... More

Circa is a winner in my book! It's small, intimate, and has outstanding food! One of my favs, the fried oysters! Honestly, I've never been disappointed eating there. Reservations are a must! It's location is in the historic area known as Hilton Village in Newport News VA Enjoy!

Have been here a few times with friends, so have sampled many of the wonderful choices(difficult to choose). One raves about the meatloaf, while another loves the duck. Every single offering is excellent at this small, fine Hilton Village restaurant. Service is excellent. Wines are excellent. The whole dining experience... Well, excellent. 😉

The staff always make you feel at home. The ambulance, food and drink are all fantastic. This is how a restaurant should be run! Did I mention the delicious desert? I'd like to see something better separating the outside from the inside. Each time the door opens, you will get some fresh air if you are seated nearby.

Thank Ron M
