Central Bistro and Bar
Awesome!I've been wanting to try this place and when they launched their Travelzoo deal, I couldn't pass it up. We had small plates, entrees, salads and desert and everything was outstanding. I highly recommend the crab mac & cheese and watermelon salad. The ambiance is great and the view of downtown is beautiful. They have a nice patio and bar. We will be back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!! Can't wait toFantastic!!! Can't wait to go back and enjoy another wonderful meal.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!I booked this restaurant due to an article in the Westword a month or so ago. I wanted somewhere different & I wanted to try something new in regards to food/drinks. This place was such a find! The service started off great & it continued throughout the entire evening by our server Frank. Our drinks were awesome, mainly because due to the vast amount of top end Whiskeys & our server's knowledge of the drink menu, he was able to make great recommendations. The appetizers were great, the main course was great, & our desert was fantastic! Not the mention the view. We will most definitely be back to this place for both food & drinks!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe place was a wonderful find. The food was very very good. Inventive and I love that they love vegetables as much as the proteins. Plus the Nutella waffle with banana butterscotch and pretzel ice creek was the best dessertt I think I have ever had.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMKnowledgeable with great reccosI always enjoy an experience where the service is outstanding and our meal was just that. Our waiter was a sommelier and gave excellent wine reccos and then walked us right through the food. All excellent suggestions and great fun!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a DelightExcellent standard menu items, delightful daily specials. Great place to dine and chat with friends.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCentral Bistro has it all!Whether it's a drink at the bar, brunch or a nice night out, Central Bistro is where to go. Great times and great, friendly staff.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA new stapleCheese curds are a must! I'm going back just for those and their happy hour - 40% off bottles of wine. Enjoyed my dinner but was a bit envious of what others ordered. Will go back again just to try what they had. Staff was prompt and courteous. About the right amount of time for us to decide but not too much time that we were left wondering what happened to the staff. Looking forward to a less windy day to sit on the patio. Great view of the downtown skyline. Also enjoyed the parking for my bike.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great!!My wife and I truly enjoyed our dinner. She is a tough cookie that is sometimes hard to please but was VERY happy at the end. I am sure the Happy Gilmore did not hurt. We will be back!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDivine Cheese PlateAmerican artisanal cheese plate was a hit. Lovely presentation, a mix of textures, tastes, cheese, fruits, honey... Hip atmosphere.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great location!This restaurant has awesome food and has a great location! I would highly recommend it!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day brunchMy family and I came here for their Mother's Day brunch and we have plenty of reasons to come back. Central offered a buffet on Mother's Day that had some of the usual breakfast items (eggs, house fries, bacon, sausage, waffles) and some lunch items like hot deli meats and salads. What has us coming back though is the barley salad that was to die for, the mixed green salad with a light vinaigrette, the made to order omlets, and the amazing selection of bourbons and whiskeys. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the liquids and even some of the little decorations placed in the drinks! (Like the cherry in the manhattan drink) Overall we had a great experience and will definitely be coming back to try their usual menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place but it can get noisy!We went to Central Bistro for the first time on a Sat. night. First, let me say the food was fabulous. I had salmon with a citrus fennel salad and my hubbie had the steak. Excellent presentation on both and outstanding flavor. I loved the decor--urban chic---and the HOT sign above the kitchen ( check out the cute explanation on the menu). There was a fun feel, we were there around 7ish. However, by the time we left around 8:30 it became so energetic (read: Loud) you couldn't hear yourself think, let alone talk! We were literally having to shout at our friends sitting across the table from us. I love this place but I think they need something to buffer the sound a little bit which is why the 4 stars not 5.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll go backMenu was small but the food was very good. The view of Denver is very nice. Parking is impossible but there is complimentary valet so that is not an issue. Server was a bit condecending which kept this from being 5 stars.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time to CenralIt was our first time to Cenral Bistro and we thought everything was great. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. We had the pork cheeks and bread pudding for appetizers and both were delicious. We couldn't decide on a favorite there. For dinner we had the pork loin and the steak. The pork loin was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. The steak was a bit overcooked but still had nice flavor and the potato gratin that came with it was very good. For dessert, we tried the sweet potato cheesecake which was just the right amount of sweet. We had a table by the window, which gave us a great view of downtown Denver as well. Overall, it was a really nice experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite Denver Restaurany!We love Central!

To a great view of the city it doesn't get better. Except when you add in the service which was unbelievable not only did the waiter do his job but we were also visited by the manager and to top it off the owner came by for a visit.

In the fashion of linger. Lots of items you can share very view entrees for just one person.
Most of items were delicious. Both people who ordered the soup were dissapointed. Buger ordered medium was more medium rare but thats all.
The hostess and waitress were great. The view of downtown is great. Parking is bad but where in Highlands is there parking?

Service was attentive, the pork and the chicken were delicious, and I really loved the grilled baby octopus appetizer. When it warms up just a little bit more, I'm going to sit out on the patio, which was hopping even though it's mid-March.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife went there with twoMy wife went there with two of her friends for dinner. The food was very good, but the server did not inform them that it was Happy Hour, nor did they get any break on their drinks. They found out about Happy Hour Tuesday as they were leaving, when they overheard their waitress informing another table. The service was slow, but the atmosphere was good and the food was very good.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMplease eat here, it is amazingplease eat here, it is amazing in your mouth as well as soul-proof!1/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
