It was nothing like it was advertised to be. Eat any place else and save the money for a Gentlemen s Club.

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.

This place is a loud, smoke filled, hookah bar in a strip mall, with bouncers at the door. Definitely not as described, and not what we were looking for.

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.

We did not stay. It's a hookah bar. Extremely dark and smells like smoke. Not our style at all. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone over 25.

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!

Had a great experience. Reserved a table for 6 and it was ready and waiting for us once we arrived. The food was amazing and much bigger portions that the usual Tapas style. The hookah was great also and our waitress was very attentive.

I was a bit disappointed with my reservation. I made it online and I received a confirmation but once I got to the bar I was told that I didn't have a reservation.

While I enjoyed my time and the staff specifically my waitress were very accommodating she failed to tell me that the area that she sat us in was for smokers and none of us smoked so we ended up leaving

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!

It was a great evening out for Valentines. My date and I enjoyed the table setting, the appetizers, and our meal. The staff was attentive w/o being overbearing, and even attempted a customized mixed drink. Very nice.
