Central Park - New Jersey
My wife and I had a great experience there last year for Valentine’s Day which is why we tried it this year again. Unfortunately, this time was much much worse.
Excellent place to have fun and enjoy. The service was excellent and able to have conservation with the people u are with without yelling or screaming.
Burger was not good. You walked in and there was no hostess and no one paid attention to you standing there.
It was pretty good! Definitely enjoyed myself
Our waiter was great! He knew the menu and gave us great ideas for our dinner selection. It was a friends bitthday and he made her feel special
Staff was great only issue was we were not made aware of the age requirement and the cover fee at the time of our reservation.
Based on the reviews we had read on Open Table, we decided to give Central Park A try for a Sunday night family dinner. Our rez was for 5:00. It was not crowded. We were happy about that thinking that the service would be great and the food would be prepared correctly. Neither hope proved to be true. It was not a good value for the money and it did not live up to the hyped reviews. Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience and will not be returning.
Sushi was awesome!
Always good food. Great deal for Valentine’s Day.
Always a good time. Live DJ and a million tv's for sporting events. Super fun and chic!
Excellent service and very good food. Calamari app is delicious.
This place never disappoints. It has great food and service is incredible.
if you love Sports, this is the place to be and watch your team play.
from Football to Baseball to Soccer, great atmosphere...
Went here on a Friday night with some friends. The food was good and reasonably priced. As the night went on, it got a bit list in there, which we expected. At first the waitress was attentive, but once her friends were seated at the next table she became a little distracted. At one point , I looked over and saw her doing a shot with them.
Pleasant abs casual. Excellent food
Pretty good food but not good service.
Waiter had an attitude problem. Also we had a problem with a certain policy that wasn't explained correctly to us.
I was running late for a reservation and wouldn't meet the deadline of a Father's Day deal. I was accommodated and the deal was extended to me and guest!
Father's Day menu was great. Dad's ate free. Table had punk rock calamari and shrimp, ribs and sushi roll. Ribs fell off bone. All delicious. Can't wait to go back. Also great spot to watch all sports.
It's a bar but we went on a quiet night. Our waiter was great very attentive. Nice variety of food
-They charged us a cover even for a UFC fight that was starting at midnight even though we had a 9pm dinner reservation.
-Politely asked me to not only remove my hat but TAKE IT BACK TO THE CAR...
-I understand it was a Saturday but waaay too noisy for dinner; and if the music was good but this was way too corny to be as loud as it was.
Central Park had a 2 meals for $60 for Valentine's Day including 2 glasses of champagne. It was fantastic. The limited menu had some of their top choices, including sushi rolls, on it and all was delicious. The calamari is fantastic as well as the presentation for it. Our waitress could have been a little more knowledgeable but she said she was going for further training. Very nice time. We went with another couple.
I made a reservation for the Valentine's Day 3 courses meal & I was extremely disappointed by the place. To cold, not decorated & absolutely not romantic.
The food was delicious as always but my husband who works midnight woke up after only 4 hours sleep to do something special with me and it was absolutely a NON EVENT it could had been any other day of the year. No balloons, no flowers, no candles & no decorations at all. Besides I tried to do a 2pm reservation online but that time was not available so I made it for 1:45pm however when I got there we were the only couple. It was my most depressing Valentine's experience ever. Live and learn!
Hi. I was pleased with my first experience. I called an hour ahead to request a quiet place to have a date night. The hostess was very nice. She also let me know ahead of time that due to the game; she cannot guarantee a "quiet" atmosphere but she will try. When we arrived, I was not sure if I wanted to stay due to the crowd. The hostess assured me that she had reserved a table for us downstairs. It was perfect, there was none there. It all worked out well. By the time the crowd arrived, there was enough time to have a quiet conversation before enjoying the festivities. Our waiter was super kind. He had on a Xmas sweater and hat. Everyone was in holiday spirit. We order Espresso martini's. Let me say that they were PERFECT! So we ordered 6 :) I had a great time. I hear you have a dance club. I will be back. Thanks for the hospitality! Oh. and GO Jets! We Won.
Very nice place with a good food. The hostess was very nice.......
Not sure why its called Central Park since it has a really clubby atmosphere.....The restaurant had some issues with Opentable and it took me several hours to make a reservation thru opentable. When I called and emailed everyone was VERY nice. When I arrived, there was no hostess at the table and the waitress was very brusque- she was obviously annoyed at the hostess. Her service at our table was hot and cold....shed be nice one minute and then rush off before we finished giving her our order...so it was a bit confusing. The food overall was pretty good. I REALLY liked the cheese steak dumplings....if I go back it would be for ONLY that!! The ribs were ok....i was told the chicken teriyaki was very good....the paella was ok....the blue sangria was very sweet so take note and the banana fried tortilla was WAY too cinnamony....The other people complaining about the noise is very warranted....at around 9pm it became club music all the way and you cant hear yourself talk.
I really liked this restaurant. The food is good. Great arrangement of the food on the plate. However servers are new. The host at the door are very friendly and nice . The prices are reasonable. It is very similar to an Applebee's or TGIF but better food.
I come here with my family at least 3-4 times a month.. Kids like it, kid friendly.. They always add something new to the menu, so their is something for every palette.. Every week they have an event.. They keep it interesting..
Bar food was good sushi not so much very loud not for my crowd.
It was crazy loud as expected but the vibe was nice; our hostess was attentive even when our waitress forgot us (not unusual in this occasion), I wish I remembered her name - but very friendly. We definitely have to visit on a normal day, but before that we'll go again for a World Cup match. The bar party is great!
The atmosphere for the world cup games was awesome, starting for the hostess, including the waitress, were very attentive and the service was very good. The food arrived quickly, considering that the place was full.
My 2nd time here. I made reservations to watch the soccer game for 5:45. We arrived at 5:30 and we sat almost immediately. Then I had to ask a waitress to find out who our waitress was because she never came over. Our waitress didn't show up until 6pm and after we ordered beers for the table she came back to the table to take food order without the beer. We got our first beers at 6:15. About 45 min after we arrived. Could've been drinking from start of game. Then some guys started with a vuvuzela in the middle of the bar. Now, I understand it was a sporting event and it was busy. But that shouldn't affect service and the place was too small to allow whatever that noise was. It was really annoying not being able to hear the game.
Food and Sangria are delicious especially my two favorites- Punk Rock Shrimp and the Strawberry Dessert Roll!!! Father's Day was a success with daddy's meal free!
Food was good. Enjoyed watching a sporting event. Service was terrible. We could never find the waitress. Drinks took more than 15 min to be refilled. There were errors in our bill.
We attended the Mother's Day brunch. They had a nice selection on the buffet, although many of the items were cold. The price was right!
Thought we'd go a little late to catch the end of the dinner rush and the beginning of the party crowd. Once we finished eating we booked it, the crowd was obnoxious. But the food! SUPERB!
Food was awesome, service was great, our table had everything from chicken fingers to sushi and everyone was happy! Great bar scene too, we spent the evening after dinner at mister east next door dancing the night away!
GOOD FOOD AND GOOD SERVICE. NEVER A WAIT TIME ESPECIALLY IF YOU MAKE RESERVATONS. LOCATION IS CONVIENENT. THEY HAVE NICE EVENTS FOR KIDS ON HOLIDAYS. AND WEEKENDS AT NIGHT IS A GREAT PLACE TO DRINK, EAT AND CHILL.
Food was okay and server was very attentive and helpful at making recommendations. Ambience is more of a sports bar with televisions everywhere. Lunch selections were limited however.
