Went to Circolo on a Sat night, not the greatest night to judge a rest. We went early, and at the early part at least we could hear and it was easy parking, as the night wore on the restaurant which bills itself as an "ultra lounge" got extremely loud. We were sandwiched in on the lower lever between 1 party of 20 and one party of 40. The food seems of reasonable quality- the portions are skimpy. We ordered the tuna ceviche and ahi tartare- they seemed like pretty common dishes, nicely presented- I didn't taste every element that was listed on the menu. For entrees we ordered Pacific wild salmon ($23), and signature miso glazed chilean sea bass ($27) (is it ok to eat that fish on the sustainability level)- the portions were small- I would estimate a 4-5 oz piece of fish, the salmon came with the leaves of what I would estimate to be 2-3 brussel sprouts if that. We had 4 apps, 4 entrees, 1 btl wine about $60 per person including tip. I would take a pass on going there again.
