Excellent locationI booked Cafe Centro for six people. The restaurant was very accommodating and assigned a round table which allows all diners to participate in the conversation. The food was good, the service was excellent and we were able to be at the theatre matinee on time. We walked because the theatre was on the same street,but there is a taxi stand across the street. All the diners said they would come back soon. We particularly enjoyed the chopped salad, the pan seared trout . The waitress responded quickly to all special requests ( i asked for lemon wedges for my fish dish, we asked for the check to be split between the three couples). I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for a pre-MetroPerfect place for a pre-Metro North ride home, great value prix fixe and delicious food all around!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe received excellent service,We received excellent service, took the prix fix menu, which is the greatyest deal for the money in all of New York!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood business meeting placeI eat here all the time for breakfast and lunch.

The menu is nice and caters to all appetites; prices are moderate and varied; waiters are efficient and non-intrusive.
This is a large space, but the decor is nice and one does not feel the vastness of it. I believe it gets a busy lunch crowd and week night crowd3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI eat here all the time.
