Love this place! Great ambiance and food. Enjoyed the cocktail with Mezcal. A unique recipe created by one of the bartenders. So good! Looking forward to Tapas Tuesdays. 😊

Anna's Crispy Chicken Sandwich

The chicken was juicy and I love the bun. The sauce was so good I just wish there was twice as much of it on the sandwich! Don't be afraid of some sauce!

Seared Scallops

The Seared Scallops with pork belly were cooked to perfection. Central created a perfect balance between a light meal, but very filling. The atmosphere is equally amazing. Will be back for sure!

Mushroom Bolognese

Amazing! I had it with my wife not paying attention to the fact there was no meat. I literally finished the dish before my wife told me. Who cares I is wonderful! My Vegetarian daughter obviously loves it but we took my carnivore boss in and did the same thing and he fell in love. Ha! Like everything I have had at Central....the recipe is well thought out, it is prepared well and it is delicious. There are days I just grab my wife and head to Central because I am craving the Bolognese. Hmmmm!

Caramelized Bread Pudding Bites

Duudddeee! Yes. Just get them. Doesn't matter if u don't like bread pudding. It like if bread pudding and French toast had a baby and then deep fry that. Tasty little nuggets!

Seared Scallops

Made reservation here for my birthday and had a great experience! They greeted me with a handwritten note our host and waiter were beyond sweet and gave me lots of well wishes. They really went out of their way to make it an amazing, special birthday dinner! I had the seared scallops which were mouth watering and the steak empanada app with amazing spicy aoli. The pineapple and rum drink I had wasn't too sweet and you could taste just the right about of alcohol (usually fruity drinks are super sweet and can't taste the alc so I was really happy). Overall great service and experience. Thank you for a great birthday!!

Caramelized Bread Pudding Bites

Even if you think you're not the bread putting them on the little nuggets of heaven. Get extra sauce just to pour in your mouth afterwards. You can thank me later

It's so good I have to force myself to try other dishes - they're great as well, but there is just something very special about this dish. Ron

Skirt Steak

My wife and I frequent Central just about weekly and have tried nearly everything on the menu. We love coming to Central not only for the consistently outstanding service but also for the acute attention to detail paid to all of their dishes every time. Whatever mood you are in, you can trust that Central will have the dish to both satisfy that craving while exceeding your expectations. Keep up the great work!

Blackened Salmon Tacos

I had the Salmon Tacos and a spinach salad. Everything was incredible, the service was above and beyond. Our Waiter was Dante he was an absolute delight. One of the owners (Taylor) checked on us and he was very charming. Fabi enticed us into the restaurant and everything was amazing from then on. Thank you so much for the wonderful treat!!!
