Tips from the Net @ Le Central Bistro

Nothing special. The atmosphere is mediocre, the food is okay, and the wait staff is not knowledgeable about the menu. GooglePlace - July 2017

Really nice little gem... Kind of tucked away. Great service and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Definitely reminded me of Europe with the smaller tables and cozy setup. Now for the food, my friend ordered the escargot and I was prepared to hate it. I haven't liked it in the past but this was real good. The bread was wonderful. My warm crusted goat cheese was buttery and delicious with apples and driver to compliment. For the big finish I had the Sole. It was a little heavy but still delicious. I appreciated the great service and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys French cuisine. GooglePlace - July 2017

We Had a wonderful time at Le Central the other night. We sat at the bar, as we often do. We decided to go total French.... 1st course - escargot, tender, buttery garlic deliciousness..... 2nd course steak tartare small size (they have two portions) I have to say it might just be the best steak tartare I've ever had...... 3rd course - I had the Fillet-au-Poivre cuz I needed more meat, and my wife had the Grilled Salmon. The fillet was pepper crusted, and had a delicious Brandy peppercorn sauce...Killer!!! and the salmon was equally as good, with a nice char from the grill, and a tarragon butter sauce. We wanted a wine that would go with both the salmon and the fillet, the bartender recommended a bottle of red Burgundy, a Ladoix 1er cru. such a nice wine, and the best part about it was that it was a Monday, and on Monday nights all bottles are half price, so the wine ended up to be only $35...a premier cru Burgundy for only $35!!! we finished with a creme brule, and the bartender gave us a little complementary taste of sauternes to enjoy the creme brule with. Absolutely fantastic experience, highly recommend Le Central, and go on Monday night to take advantage of half price wine night. GooglePlace - June 2017

Just standing there and the bartender said someone will be with you in a moment and there was a gentleman who came from the back of the bar who have seen just standing there and he said how can I help you and I and then I I said I would like to eat here then another group of him behind me and he set me up my table and then he said them at their table and then he gave them their menus first and then he came back and gave me mine so I felt like there was a missed opportunity to provide me with a great customer service experience the way that I had with catering to the other tables more than they were catering to me and the person that regularly checking it just happened to be the mother in the water Guy so I gave him the $10 and I'm giving the waiter the $2 to. But I do have to say that the crab cake that I had was very very good the burger was okay. GooglePlace - March 2017
