Central 111 Tapas Bar Ratings and Reviews
I've been here before & had a blast so we came back last week, expecting the same experience. However, this time, that was not the case. The 1st part of building was getting crowded, music & scene was popping, just as expected. But after standing & waiting for the second part to be opened to the public, we kept being told it had to become more crowded before they would open it. I offered to pay for a table in the second part, even though I should not have had to because I DID have a reservation for 10:45 for a table. And the owner completely ignored my reservation & said we still have to wait. What's the point of making a reservation?? After standing & waiting for 45 minutes & having my brand new sexy boots stepped on...it was time to go. My husband & I planned on spending a pretty penny at Central 111 that night ( our 11th wedding anniversary). But we just went and spent our money somewhere else & still had a wonderful time. The point is though, we wanted to spend it at Central 111.
It was fun and I'd go back, but if I spend over $100 on a bottle of champagne I expect proper table service. Not just have it plunked down unopened. They were very busy as it was a Saturday night to be fair, the food was served hot and was obviously made in house. A good overall experience.
We were a bit thrown off by the interior decor when we first arrived. It is also a hookah bar. Don't let it bother you. There weren't many customers when we arrived but I'll say this. Eat there and you will go back! We were seated right away and the service was excellent. The wine was excellent and both my wife and I were blown away by how exceptional the food was. Appetizers were perfectly prepared and the meal was scrumptious! Try it!
Loved the place! Been here a couple of times and the hookah isn't bad. Try not to reserve a table on line. I reserved a table on line, called to confirm my reservation and had to re-reserved three tables in the back, only to get there and be told that I wouldn't be able to keep all tables. The waitress was very accommodating and made some room for us in the front where it was livelier! Good music and liquor. Go here for a good time.
Made a reservation on Open Table. On arrival, was denied entry by a bouncer due to closure for a "private event". When I informed restaurant staff that I had made a reservation, they acknowledged it, but shrugged then sneered. Beyond awful and they have rude staff to top it off. Why bother to make a reservation on Open Table if the restaurant can close without notice? Who has a bouncer at a tapas bar?
We had 6 different small plates and all were very good...inventive. Steak Oscar and Wasabi tuna were awesome. The chef freshly stuffed blue cheese olives for my martini. Waiter new all the dishes and made excellent recommendations. The feel was a little different with a vapor hookah bar as part of the atmosphere and strobe lights. Probably not the spot for your grandparents or a real stodgy crew!
