    I've passed by this spot a thousand times on the way to and from work -- how did I not stop there sooner? The interior is charming (large enough for groups, but small enough that it feels intimate), and the food was delicious (I put together a dinner made of side dishes, using the creamy polenta, mushrooms, and asparagus, all perfect). While the service was a little off point -- for example, we were all provided spoons and knives at the start of dinner, but had to track down staff at the front to get forks…and the opposite occurred during our after-meal espressos), these glitches by no means ruined the experience. Staff was over all polite. Will be excited to visit again!

    My wife and I planned a quick dinner out. We found out about Central Park and thought we'd give it a try. Everything was perfect. We got a small table for two next to a window. The service was quick and very polite. Prices were very reasonable and the food was outstanding. We were running late due to heavy traffic on a Friday night and they held our table until we arrived. We will certainly be going back. RD

    my first visit to Central Park Restaurant began with an open table reservation and special request. I was greeted by name the next morn I fun and special request was exceeded. I simply asked for the best seat in the house on my first visit. I was given 2 choices and both marked "Reserved". Nice touch. Thank you. The ambiance was light and converstional. The room was aesthetically pleasing and I appreciated the red brickwork walla accented by the solid wooden support beams on the ceiling. The menu offered an assortment of dishes we chose the waffle special with eggs. Great presentation and magnificent taste. The 2nd selection was Moulin Rouge French Toast! Yunny!!! Definitely coming back again!

    we liked our dinner and they had a special summer seafood menu at a special price we took advantage of. the scallops were amazing and the service was outstanding. we really liked our waiter and we wanted for nothing. they were on top of everything, even when we went thru so many spoons, which i don't know why we did, but they had us covered . . .

    I enjoyed the restaurant mainly because it was not noisy. There were no televisions near by. The food was very good. Our waiter was very friendly which made our visit enjoyable.

    Our first trip to CPR was great all around. Their menu was nicely varied and for the quality of food received priced reasonably. Our waiter was attentive and we couldn't have asked for a better dining experience.

    Everything was good except OpenTable did not give me the 100 points I earned and has not responded to my questions about this. I booked from the OpenTable site and was there on time.

    Casual, friendly and handsomely furnished cafe with an eclectic, but primarily American menu. Pork Chops were great, if a bit dry, pasta was perfect. Nice, neighborhood establishment.

    I asked for a specific table and when we got there the maître d' told me that they had forgot to save the table for me. The service was spoty; and there were not that many customers.

    Low key, informal, quiet and welcoming, our first trip to this under-the-radar spot will not be the last. A varied menu ranging from comfort food to more challenging fare comes out well presented and properly prepared. A short but nicely chosen wine list adds to the value. A "patio" space, which is indoors but overlooks a parking lot oddly adds to the comforting, homey feel. Pleasant and capable staff do their job with no fanfare but reliable skill. I feel a need to try other items already!

    The type of place one goes to when not needing a grand dining experience nor a diner experience. We need more bistro place like this, with a terrific menu with lots of choice. We shall return.

    We had a birthday for our son and his 2 children on Tuesday. We live in Burbank but thought CP would be a great venue. Our son and his kids had not been there previously. They all loved it. The food, service and everything was great.

    Have eaten at Central Park many times, brunches and dinners. Always GREAT food, servers are very pleasant and very attentive for a neighborhood eatery. I really like the Chicken Piccata dinner and they have very good gourmet taco specials from time to time.

    This was my first time at Central Park and now, it is my go to favorite restaurant in Pasadena. Having worked in the hospitality industry for many years, it takes a lot to impress foodies with access to great food and service. We hosted my former boss and his wife for dinner over Memorial Day weekend and while he can afford the best that money has to offer, he too said "Central Park is our restaurant from now on". The Manager visits the tables and the servers are very attentive without being intrusive. Love, Love, Love, Central Park.
