The food was good, my ribeye was prepared medium well yet I asked for medium, but everyone else's was great, I think that's what really matters. The atmosphere was electric and inviting. The service personnel were friendly and hospitable with all of our needs. Overall the evening was a success and I'd like to thank everyone that worked that evening.

Well, we had friends in town, so we decided to try it. What a great restaurant. A nice, varied selection of food, great wait staff, and reasonable prices.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNot perfect but enjoyable.Overall the Easter Brunch experience at Central 214 was a good one. My lack of 5 stars due to the extra long time it took for me and 3 family members to get our food after we ordered. Our waiter was very professional but with the open kitchen pretty visible to the dining room, it wasnt hard to see there was some confusion that day. Although it was Easter Sunday, the restaurant was not packed and the menu was intersting but pretty 'compressed' as well so I expected a bit more efficiency. Wait wasn't crazy long though. My son's grilled cheese/tomato bisque arrived on the cool side but he was so hungry he ate it anyway. It and everything else we ordered had great flavor and high marks for the restaurant design and atmosphere.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date night. ServiceGreat date night. Service timing was impeccable and waiter, Michael, provided excellent service! We will return .3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Marbelous Beef and DuckhornGreat Marbelous Beef and Duckhorn Dinner. Food was excellent and the waitstaff were extremely attentive. When I asked them to put the music off (as you couldn't hear the first speaker) this was done immediately.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a wonderful mealWe enjoyed a wonderful meal at Central 214. We were seated right on time, our server was attentive without being too invasive. The recommendations of wine and meal choices were spot on. I had the kale salad followed by the steak and both were divine. I cannot wait to go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis time the service wasThis time the service was excellent. Michael was great - friendly but not overly so. Hiatt (spelling?) was attentive too and came over to see how things were. The food was fantastic as usual. My cousin was very apprehensive about trying the green tomato pie - she did and pronounced it absolutely amazing.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find! To be honestWhat a find! To be honest I choose the restaurant because it was in the 1000 point category. Yes, it is in a hotel, but the restaurant is wonderful. We had the Scotch Egg to start and it was lovely and crispy on the outside a little over done for me inside, but still very nice. I had the chicken for dinner and my husband had the fish. Both were very well prepared and presented. Our server was helpful with any questions we had and was always there when you needed him. We will go back, regardless if a on the 1000 point list or not. BTW, the outside sitting looked lovely, but it was February so we didn't venture out.2/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery dish we had there wasEvery dish we had there was fantastic and the waiter was extremely helpful and answered all our questions.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good!
