    Having been to Circles numerous times before the pandemic this time we were disappointed in a few ways. Of course the ambiance suffered but that’s understandable. The soup and salad was excellent. We ordered two grilled grouper with asparagus one with coleslaw the other garlic potatoes. The vegetables were plentiful in fact overwhelming. The fish was tiny I say 4 ounces. Even the texture of the fish was good but a far cry from others. The service was impeccable.

    Menu was much smaller than normal with none of the "upscale" food that we enjoy. Outside dineing was a too warm, inside would have been much more comfortable but unavailable. I'm sure that at some point things will return to normal, until then, I will not be back and as of now would not reccomend to anyone. My birthday was Monday, I attempted to make a Monday reservation on the previous Friday, was not able to get a reservation until Thursday, 5:30 was all that was available.

    Our server did his very best to bring us a wonderful celebration. Due to the virus restrictions dampened our enjoyment some. Circles has a good reputation and they're working at accommodating the public and to stay in compliance with the regulations to be open at this difficult time

    I have been to Circle’s many times but this was not good. First, wine served in a small plastic cup; I had entered online we were celebrating 2 birthdays and the waitress never brought it up; very limited menu which was not on their website.

    Was EXACTLY what I needed after a stressful few months. I was surprised by a few friends who wanted to get me out of the house but weren’t from this area so I suggested Circles and they were all very impressed and have been talking about next time since! Thank you for the service and the amazing food!!!

    The food was amazing and the restaurant was well equipped for ensuring social distancing and cleanliness. Our waitress wasn’t as great. She seemed eager to get us in and out, but mostly wasn’t helpful at all when I mentioned a dietary restriction and inquired about a substitution. The additional staff, such as hostess and food runners were very friendly.

    Nice to have Circles open outside. It will be nice when the porch with fans is open rather than only the beachside seating which can be very warm. Food and service were fabulous as usual. Looking forward to having Circles fully open again!

    Limited seating, reservations only, wait staff wearing masks, and open air dining. What a great way to get our businesses open again, and provide the same high level of service as in the past. Circles has become our favorite "date night" restaurant because of these things. Want quality dinners in a comfortable environment at a good price. Give Circles a try - but make a reservation...they are popular.

    Beautiful restaurant with an awesome view. Very disappointed with the food. Second visit this season, both times the food was horribly salty. Last time i sent the meal back, but this time i ate just the shrimp. What is the matter with the chef? Let people salt their own food. We are snowbirds and have eaten there before and enjoyed our meals. This was my Birthday and was looking for a good meal, but was really disappointed. Our server was very nice.
