    Ambiance and food was excellent, and cocktails were delicious. We had a 5:15 reservation before a 7p show, which we let our server know about. Our dinner didn’t come out until about 6:40 and our friend’s steak was way overcooked. We didn’t get a chance to let the server know because unfortunately, no one came back to check on us after dropping the food. :( They graciously comped the steak, but it was a bummer to have to rush through our food to get out on time.

    Absolutely great experience food was fantastic. We received the salmon special for our entrée. The muscles and a Caesar for our appetizer espresso martinis are always a must made creamy. We even brought our four month old daughter which she loved looking at the chandeliers overall had an amazing time.

    My theater friend and I have been to Circe several times on show nights. The atmosphere is busy but enjoyable. On this visit, my son and I ordered the salmon off the menu, which was just fine. His petite fiance ordered the steak frites special and was shocked when an enormous slab of meat with a mountain of fries was set down in front of her on a platter twice the size of our plates. I feel as though the server could have done a better job of making sure she understood how large the dish was going to be when taking her order. He was very friendly but obviously busy; the service was fine but not especially attentive. The bill was quite a bit higher than I usually spend on a theater night. I'm learning to ask more questions about specials before ordering them. We'll probably return to Circe, and ask to sit upstairs to avoid the bustle of the main floor.

    Hostess couldn’t tell us when the valet would be there. $77 for a fatty piece of steak and fries. It was a special, very over priced. Borratta didn’t come with bread. We were disappointed with the night.

    One of my favorite places to eat before show at PPAC. Food is always delicious, great menu choices, and lovely atmosphere. Service fantastic. Only disappointment was made reservations & requested window seat if available, we were seated next to kitchen, tiny table couldn’t even hold all our apps ordered, with two backless bar stools. Had to ask to swap out seats with the bar seats which actually had a back. It was not crowded on a Tuesday night at 5.30am with plenty of other seats available that were more comfortable without overhearing every order placed at the kitchen. I could understand if we simply walked in without notice.

    Circe is a pretty cool physical location. Wasn't a fan of the cocktails and the Caesar Salad was uninspiring. The special tenderloin was fantastic. Worth the price? Not entirely sure. Would I go back? Also, not entirely sure. Probably better options in Providence

    We went to Circe with no expectations. The food was great. Our server was great. the ambience was great. We had nothing left on our plates. I had lobster ravioli that was perfect with a glass french chardonnay. My wife enjoyed the creative lobster risotto. My Mom plowed through her mussels and the kids enjoyed the pizza and gourmet burger. Everyone was happy. We will be back next time we are in town.

    Have had great brunch experiences there in the past. This time, very loud house music. We were told where we usually sit at the bar was "reserved" A saxophonist stood on the bar and randomly played to the music at this spot. Food was disappointing this time. Wagyu tacos were tiny little street tacos with weirdly chopped hamburger. Ceasar salad was good. Will not go back

    Excellent bar service. Shrimp cocktail fresh and large shrimp. Bolognese was ok - not my favorite dish. I have had some excellent dishes here. Recommend salmon and anything short rib. If the tomato soup is available order it. Love the atmosphere. Not too loud - perfect lighting. Worth the trip.

    Excellent service, fun and pretty venue. The food was very good. Try the fried burrata, the bolognese, and the cheesecake! Excellent. Beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon was overdone and dry. Next time I’ll skip that and go for the filet mignon. Good value for the money. We loved it.
