My husband and I absolutely loved our meal here. They catered to his vegetarian request and some of my dietary constraints really well. Ever since my husband turned vegetarian, he has not been a fan of tasting menus - but this one blew his mind!...More

The service and atmosphere were excellent. The tasting menu centered on some unusual offerings that I didn't fully appreciate. Somewhat gimmicky presentations,emphasis on altitude of the fare and celebrity chef. I felt the price was reasonable but don't consider it one of the best restaurants...More

The dining rooms at Central are simple, spare, understated as if to present the guests with nothing that might detract from the amazing food. And amazing it truly is. We were served seventeen courses in succession, from the Mater Elevations menu, with each food course...More

Top restaurant? No way. Overall Central was one big disappointment. They used unusual ingredients but the kitchen couldn’t seem to make any of the 17 courses taste or look good. Our table was against the wall and so dark that we couldn’t tell the difference...More

Speechless!!! Everything was incredible, food, service and ambience. If you are ready for something new and out of this word, you should come here. Thumbs up the the chef and his crew. That's why it is a ranked restaurant.

There is a reason why this is not the 5th ranked restaurant on TripAdvisor, because real people go out to eat and give reviews here and not fancy restaurant critics who don’t know food vs good food that the masses want to eat. We eagerly...More
