Divine Cheese Plate
American artisanal cheese plate was a hit. Lovely presentation, a mix of textures, tastes, cheese, fruits, honey... Hip atmosphere.

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!!!!

A new staple
Cheese 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.

Central 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.

Knowledgeable with great reccos
I 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!

The 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.

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!

Fantastic!!! Can't wait to go back and enjoy another wonderful meal.

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 AM
We went here for their Father's Day brunch. I had the crab eggs benedict. Heaven! Its reasonably priced, casual yet elegant atmosphere and very friendly staff. Will definitely go again!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful experience. Clams were divine. Watermelon salad unique and delish. Cocktails and wine perfect. Halibut and Steak were wonderful, but, the starters won the blue ribbon...

A slow start with pleasant results
Once we got past being ignored for 15 min after being seated we asked the hosyess for water then after another 15 min we went back to the hostess to ask for a server. Once the server came over 30 min after we were seated he was great! Through some lack of communication I don't think anyone was assigned our table. The manager apologized but didnt even send over a beverage (we were sitting outside & it was 90 degrees out). The menu was interesting & everything we had was delicious! The carpaccio was fresh, the lobster mac & cheese delicious, but the watermelon, cured meat, lime, cilantro, ricotta salad was perfect for a hot summer night. The Halibut was tasty & cooked perfect.

Amazing Birthday celebration
The food was fantastic! I am so amazed and truly appreciate the art of this talented chef. Every time I took a first bite, it was so amazed at the flavors that I forgot to instagram what a beautiful dish it was to begin with. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! We will certainly be back!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will return again and again
My niece recommended Central Bistro and Bar, and I have since thanked her profusely. The food was superb...salad with watermelon, capicola, and jicama is a must-try...presentation was perfect. Two of us tried the "grown-up" banana split and enjoyed every bite; the carmelized bananas were a real treat. Our server was there when we needed him, but not overbearing. We sat on the patio and were able to carry on an important conversation with ease. Can't wait to take other friends to this fabulous find!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceeded Our Expectations
We live very close to Central Bistro, but were reluctant to give it a try earlier due to how empty the place always looks. We decided to take the plunge, and we are glad we did. I tried the burger, which was great, and my wife tried the vegetarian pasta dish, which she loved. We will be back.

Best Findings this Summer
Food was wonderful, everything was great. My new favorite spot.

Loved Central Bistro--good food, nice atmosphere and valet parking. Would definitely dine again.

Great neighborhood restaurant
We came here last Friday evening for drinks and dinner. Started with a drink at the bar and then to the patio for apps, salads, dinner and dessert. The service was great, we liked the atmosphere and vibe. We also really liked most of our food but they really missed the mark on a few dishes including the halibut (way under seasoned) and the s'more dessert (not sweet and simply not good). Everything else food wise was great including then crab Mac and cheese, watermelon salad and steak. I will go back again, I just will not order the dishes mentioned. Looks like they have a great happy hour and live music on the patio on Sunday nights in the summer.

great food, great service
great food, great service and an wonderful experience.

Great food, but high noise levels
The food was excellent all around, but the noise levels put us off.

A great time for our wedding group
We had many fiends and family in town. A small group of 8 dined here. Started outside on the patio, but moved inside due to weather. Staff were great to make the change with a small group. Menu had something for everyone. My wife loved the Tito's Moscow Mule in the ice cold copper mug. Never felt rushed, food was excellent, food delicious , and the service outstanding. Definitely a place to enjoy with friends anytime. A great choice for any occasion.

Very good brunch
Brunch was incredible. Whole party thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Staff was lean, but good when they came by. They weren't that busy, but it was early on a Sunday. No complaints with staff themselves, I think they were just a couple of them running the whole show.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best Sunday brunches to be enjoyed in Denver
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Solid Restaurant
A diverse menu and an airy atmosphere make Central a great spot for a nice evening out. The complimentary valet and friendly service also add to the positive experience. The prices are a bit pricey -- even by Denver standards -- and it does tend to get a little loud when it's filled up, but it is a good spot. I do wish the small plates were a bit bigger or could be adjusted based on party size.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We keep going back
This is a little gem in LoHi that never fails to give us a great night out. We keep taking friends and family and everyone has loved it each time we have been.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant in the highlands with a nice view of downtown. I have eaten here 6-7 times and every meal has been delicious. Love the restorative juices for brunch and the nutella waffle. Great burger. Entrees are all good - Easy to get in and not overrun by crowds.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second experience
This was our second experience at Central Bistro, and it certainly will not be our last!
The service is always outstanding, and the food is great. This time we were able to sit outside, and the view to downtown is beautiful from that location. Even the noise from the highway goes away quickly as soon as you settle in with a cocktail and friends.
Great addition to the Denver area.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Central Bistro! It is our "go to" restaurant. The food is always outstanding. The service is impeccable. The location is perfect!!!

Great specialty drinks, our food was excellent, and staff was very friendly and welcoming... can't wait to go back.
Sat in the Bar and out door patio area... will try the dining area next time for a more romantic feel.

Great Sunday Evening Hang Out!
Last Sunday we came here for dinner and ambiance. The band, French Nilla and the Decaf Muchaco were AMAZING and really made the experience at this hot spot! Food was great. Service good/not excellent--could have been a bit more attentive, but the band and the food made up for it.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent food and service, but
we asked for medium burgers and parts of our burgers were way underdone. But they cheerfully did a re-grill.
Service excellent and unobtrusive.
The word "hot" in neon/led letters on ceiling would be better left unlighted.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was absolutely fantastic- we will be coming back.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Brunch. Loved the Strawberry
Great Brunch. Loved the Strawberry Rhubarb Mimosa. The Steak Omelette was delicious. Service was attentive, they were there when we needed them and left us alone when we didn't. The Nutella Waffle was interesting... It was not typical waffle batter, more like a dough that had been cooked in a waffle iron. It was good, but after one bite, it was just too heavy. A lighter waffle would have been better, especially since this dish is meant to be a dessert. The pretzel ice cream that it was served with was perfection, a great mix of creamy, sweet, and salty.

I didn't find the menu that exciting, but the food was good the service was friendly and the cocktails were tasty.

Third visit..very consistent! Great food, fantastic service! Halibut was delicious!

The egg on a chicken sandwich was good and had the waffle dessert bananas .

Great addition to Lo Hi
Casual atmosphere but upscale menu. Welcoming. We have made a point to introduce friends and they have all been delighted.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Found a hidden gem
We will be back! This is a delightful moderately priced place that makes you feel like you stumbled across a hidden gem. Pork Duo was a huge hit, as were the spare ribs. Ice creams and sorbets are made in house and definitely worth trying. Valet was one of the friendliest in town.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this place!!
We started out going there on a coupon and have been back several times since, always taking friends and family. They have never disappointed. Food is interesting, well prepared, fresh and the view of downtown Denver is spectacular. I hate to write a great review as it will become so much busier, but this is a restaurant deserving of applause.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
we really enjoyed our brunch before the Bronco game but they have no gluten free breads, muffins etc. Nothing for gf customers, Of course you can always find something but gf toast is easy. the breakfast potatoes were great!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful, concise menu with interesting and beautiful, delicious entrees (we shared four...!).
Very fun and comfortable ambiance, with special visual treats!

Dinner dfor 7
I arranged a special dinner for 6 friends/business colleagues. We had a variety of appetizers, salad and 4 different entrees. Everything was spectacularly delicious; different and cooked perfectly. 5 of us thought it was the best meal we had ever had; 2 thought it was one if the best. For dessert we had the cheesecake. By far the best any of us had ever had. Excellent restaurant with good service. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Dining Experience
Great everything! Before we went here, the last dining experience we had was so awful, so It was great to have a near perfect dinner to compensate. Our server Dave, was so knowledgeable and charismatic. He also informed us that it was the first night of a new menu roll-out, and EVERYTHING was on point, which was super impressive. We will definitely be back.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I came to Central for date night on Saturday, and we had a blast! We were having trouble deciding what we wanted, and ended up just sharing a few different plates. Our favorite was the flatbread, it was sooo good and we both thought we could eat an entire one ourselves. Everything we ordered was delicious, down to the cocktails. Our server was friendly and helpful as well. We will definitely be back to try more of the menu!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM

I planned a date night for my girlfriend and it was so delightful and delicious. Would definitely recommend. The scallops are amazing. Had a wonderful time. Will be back. my girlfriend was even thanking me the day after because she thought the whole night was spectacular. The whole staff is exceptional.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined with a group of 5 for an early dinner. The food and cocktails were all wonderful. We chose a few small plates to share, and a few of us had entrees. Burgers were spectacular and the barrel aged Manhattan's were amazing.
The atmosphere is great - cozy but still modern and the restaurant has the best view of downtown Denver.
We will definitely be back.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to Central for brunch were able to sit outside on the patio, which gives a great view of downtown. The food was great, we shared the cinnamon roll french toast and then each had an omelette. There were only two downsides to our visit, the first being that we did find some plastic bits in our french toast, which was unfortunate but the management took that off our bill. The second was that they overcharged me for my mimosa. Our personal server wasn't very attentive (after dropping off the check we waited 15 minutes for him to get my credit card and finally gave it to another server), but the other servers around us appeared to be, so I think that was just him and not the establishment overall.

Loved the food and drink choices. Can't wait to come back.
