We had a wonderful time. And Mr Ikeda is a wonderful host. We are sad to see him leave.
Very good restaurant but difficult to find parking spot.
The complimentary bread bowl consisted of french bread and toast only and there were no refills. In the past, I've enjoyed small rolls of various kinds--more variety. Please let us sample the other breads as well so that I can encourage my friends to buy breads and rolls on the way out.
Food was great and service excellent with well informed servers. A great place to enjoy a meal
This is the 4th meal I have had a Central Bakery. The first 3 were okay. The last dinner we had there was terrible. We had to wait at least 45 min. for our dinner to arrive. No one came by to let us know the status of our order until we asked. We had to ask a second waiter to check for us as the first one never came back. My pasta was overcooked. The sauce was minimal. It was so disappointing to wait that long for our dinner to arrive and then to have it be awful. I would not recommend this restaurant.
The food was excellent, I had the mushroom omelette it was made to perfection. I find the service great, did not felt rushed. Most of all the bread was wonderful. I plan to return again.
unless you are female and japanese don't expect much service or attention here. the food was so-so, the lunch menu being very limited compared to what's listed online, and my pasta was bland - maybe a notched up version of chef boyardee at best. for the steep prices, having to get up multiple times to ask for such simple oversights as sugar for my tea, this west oahu couple definitely won't be back.
Always very happy with my visit at this restaurant. Service is a little slow but friendly. Food is very tasty. Overall good place to eat. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
My most recent dinner experience was quite unsatisfactory. Normally, we receive a nice pre-meal of an assortment of breads. This time the bread was not the usual tasty assortment. After ordering, our drinks and salad arrived in a reasonable amount of time. However, our entree didn't arrived til 1 hour and 20 minutes after our reservations. Normally, we get our dinners in about 20-30 minutes. And this is for a party of 3. I'm not sure what the problem is but this is not acceptable .
Wow We had to wait 1:45 for meal. I wouldn't go back there again.
We've been here a number of times and haven't been disappointed. The food is good and consistent and their breads are fabulous.
Outstanding food for a good value. The bread is the best. I highly recommend Central Bakery for a delicious experience!
Always enjoy eating at Central Bakery. Love the food. Service is a little slow and the thing I like least about this restaurant is I have to constantly ask for butter for my bread.
Met Manga the personable owner while there. There is a bakery to purchase breads that rival Paris. The food is excellent European with a French emphasis. Staff is delightful and very professional - even with help to buy bread while dining and put on the bill to go with. Just a very nice neighborhood restaurant. Small but OK wine list.
I love the pasta with prosciutto here, but I tried the pasta with homemade sausage this time. It didn't have the same wonderful garlicky salty treatment on the noodles as the tomato prosciutto dish had so I felt like I had to add salt. I added a lot of parmesan to the portion I took home to bring it up to delicious.
Their service and foods are always good for our family, specially they make bread at the restaurant so you may eat some bread which just comes from oven! You can also purchase breads and cakes for home. Please enjoy!
Awesome food and great bread selection also.
We had a big group and they accommodated us pretty well.
I'll go back for sure!
An excellent meal. Good choices, and all dishes we had were very good. Parking can be difficult, but it's worth it.
Excellent food. We all enjoyed it very much
Better than Sabrina's or la cucina if you're looking for Italian. Parking and service speed are the only negatives at this place.
We had an excellent family dinner day before Christmas. Outstanding food, pleasant staff and a very relaxed, informal and comfortable ambiance. A great experience.
Good food, good size portions; spacious and clean, must eat their freshly baked breads!!!
Very good service and great food.
Feels just right all the time. Excellent, thoughtfully prepared meals. Unique ingredients and combinations make this a special place. In addition, the side breads and desserts are outstanding.
We were celebrating 3 birthdays and Central Bakery gave the celebrants freshly baked bread. Such a nice touch. Food was great and service was excellent. Great place to dine.
It was very taisty
Great service until the end when it took awhile for the bill to come...otherwise pasta dishes were excellent!
There is only one problem. Service is very slow but the food and ambiance make up for it. The breads are out standing. The food is unbelievable. Presentation is extrodinary.
Super kind! Perfect bread and pastas.
Price and quality was satisfied !
I met my friend here for dinner on a Monday evening. The restaurant was pretty empty, just a few tables were filled so it was nice & quiet. Our waiter, who was very attentive, brought us a basket with 3 types of breads to try. And while we were enjoying our appetizer, he brought us another type of bread fresh from the oven. IT WAS SOOOO GOOD! I think he said it was called "bread & salt". YUM! For our appetizer, we ordered a prosciutto/fruit plate. I'm not a fan of meat with fruits, but my friend really liked it. For dinner, she ordered a pasta with clams. I can't remember the name but I think it started with a "v". She seemed to really like it. I ordered the portobello mushroom pasta & it was good. For dessert, we shared a chocolate-raspberry tart which I thought was really rich & delicious (and I don't even like raspberries!). My friend thought it was "okay", but she didn't care for the consistency of the gelatinous raspberry topping. I did NOT mind that & ate it all! The chef & head waiter (both Japanese) had come out to greet a little, adorable Japanese boy who was dining there with his family. So as we left they were near the exit & thanked us & bowed to us. It was very sweet! Overall, I really enjoyed my experience! I want to go back at lunch-time to try their sandwiches & other desserts.
I'm on vegetarian diet. They have a great salad and soup which filled me up.
Excellent service. Everyone enjoyed their meal. My friend had never heard of or been to Central Bakery and was pleasantly surprised!
Food prepare pefr
Wonderful restaurant. EXCELLENT FOOD EVERYTIME I have been there. CLEAN, best service ever. Ambiance is relaxing, stylish and comfortable
Very nice food and experience. Delicious food and fresh bread served with meals.
Food very good. Service was friendly but not very attentive, and we waited a LONG time for our food to arrive.
I was surprised that on a Sunday afternoon the restaurant wasn't busier than it was. The pre-meal breads set on the table- along with the additional rolls brought during the meal- were delicious and certainly fresh. A nice change from the usual as most restaurants.
Service was friendly and excellent with no rushing around.
A perfectly-timed early dinner before a movie! Thank you for the hospitality!
The food was delicious and the ambiance was excellent. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Will definitely visit again!!
I always enjoy the relaxed cozy dining at central bakery
