farmed fish?

love the 'classics' here, but farmed salmon, Circa, really? Why? There's really kind of no excuse to do farmed salmon in Seattle...especially when you used to have such amazing seafood specials!

what happened to the chef?

Have loved Circa for years, but feel like the food has taken a bit of a slip in the last year or so. The standbys are still fab - steak salad, truly the best meatloaf EVER, and the burger...sooo good! - but as far as the rest of the rest of the menu and the specials are concerned, it's just not what it used to be.
They used to have really deliciously creative, seasonal, gastro-pubish menus with outrageous specials. Now the menu has a heavily fried and 1997 feel to it...not so mode
...view morern!

One of the servers mentioned that their chef moved to some island to cook at a bistro somewhere in the San Juans? So sad! ...gonna have find that island!

Terrible service

Circa, in West Seattle, has great food but be prepared to wait 30 minutes to get your salad when only 3 tables were busy. Then be prepared for your dinner to land on the table as you try to bolt down the salad. We have had terrible service 3 of the last 4 times - we won't go back.

Blessed to have Circa in our ""hood""!

Where we head when we want COMFORT! It's a tough choice selecting our favorite standards or the specials of the day. We have never-ever been disappointed in the food or service. Huge bonus points that it's reasonably priced as well. Warm, inviting and oh so comfortable :).

Brunch Slam Dunk

I may or may not be writing this review prematurely, but I'd like to think I know a good brunch when I taste one and this was a great effort. The food was well delivered with perfectly seasoned hash browns, great sausage and above all the option to have their out-of-this-world coffee cake instead of toast. It was so good! The service was decent. Not overly pushy but not very friendly - just there to get you in and out, which we were ok with. I am looking forward to trying this place ou...view moret for dinner and seeing the Ale House side of their operations!view less

Best In Town

The people who work there are AWESOME! Great service, great conversation, and they really do know your names. The food has always delighted. If you are looking for great conversation and a nice selection of Beer and Wine, this is the place. The fellow travelers that eat and enjoy the beverages are always warm and friendly as well. So whether solo or a group of you, you are sure to have a terrific time at Circa's. ET and MW

terrible service

After waiting 50 minutes for our food to arrive, had to give up and walk out. Regrettably, as we were both very hungry! Last straw was seeing another table served after having been seated 15 minutes prior. Several patrons seated, served and paid while we waited. Waitress was polite and very apologetic, but there comes a point when you just have to head for the exit... Impulse decision to drop in; won't likely come back anytime soon. Longtime local neighbor.

Sunday Brunch Heaven

I just died and woke up in Sunday brunch heaven. The angels at Circa in West Seattle served me the banana pancakes with pecan maple syrup and perfectly cooked bacon. My boyfriend had the chorizo scramble with coffee cake. About half way through the meal we both started giggling. I still have a huge smile on my face and a happy feeling in my belly. Seriously you guys...I think this was the BEST BRUNCH I've ever had. Oh, and when we asked the lovely waitress why the food coming out...view more of their kitchen was SO good...she said: ""because it's made with love"". Hello?! Enough said, just go there.view less

Great place, great food and great personality.

Just had a terrific dinner at Circa last night. It's always hard to pick, there are a number of very strong selections. The meatloaf is unbeatable. I can highly recommend the steak also. Crab cakes are very good also. This is truly a neighborhood joint and I always feel comfortable hanging out and chatting with patrons and staff. One of the other patrons told me he thinks of it as the neighborhood ""Cheers"". I've met a number of very nice people and the staff is very attentive and fri...view moreendly. There are now a lot of choices for dining in West Seattle, but I find myself going back to Circa again and again. They only serve wine and beer, I am voting for hard liquor to be added. But, the beer choices are far from ordinary and there are always a couple more exotic european choices that I have found to be very good. \rview less

Neighborhood Gem

I eat at Circa weekly if not more and love the servers there. Here's the problem, it's a neighborhood pub with really great food, not the Four Seasons. You pathetic whiners who want your butts licked up and down can f-off to whatever the ""hot"" new restaurant is, you nouveau rich pansies. None of the servers are underage and they all have a great rapport with the regulars and the place is constantly full. So take your whining about being served by people with a personality out of ...view moremy neighborhood.view less
