    No where did it say this was a hookah lounge. We showed up to a place with blacked out windows and a hookah set. Not what we wanted at all for family dinner, we left immediately before speaking to anyone. My older parents did not appreciate

    The bar tender named D was making up the prices for drinks. When we got served by the other bartenders they all have the same unified prices but when D helped us he made the same exact drink for a dollar for two more. For example I ordered wine from 2 other bar tenders and they had the same price then I got wine from D and it was 2 dollars more. When I told the other bar tenders About this they very disgusted and surprised then they proceeded to tell me that D’s price was not the correct price

    The atmosphere looked more for a younger crowd, but the food was absolutely delicious. The Caesar salad was plenty to split with my husband. My husband loved the steak Oscar and my lemon pepper chicken on angel hair pasta was perfect. Service was on point.

    Several Problems: Asked for one brand of alcohol and recieved something else and was charged for what I originally asked for, spoke with the owner he was rude and distasteful and didn't attempt to satisfy me. When I stated I would never return he said he didn't care. Then the bartender was handed a 100 dollar bill by my friend to pay for 36 dollars worth of drinks and never gave him his change then wanted to argue that he did... owner offered drinks because he didn't want to view the tape and told my friend to come back the next day. If you're owed change who would want to wait until the next day!!! I will never step foot in this place ever again.

    Food was good, service good, kind of an odd place but not in a bad way, just different. Seating was a bit awkward but we enjoyed ourselves and will probably go back to try other menu items. We were there early and the only people there.

    Chose a location recommended by open table. When I arrived I was greeted by the server with a big smile. Not taking into consideration that this location turns into a club towards the evening hours, it was perfect for an early evening dinner with my teenage children. I must say every plate of food chosen was exceptional in its own right. I believe there should be consideration to serve toward a dinner crowd. You have great potential.

    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!
