LOVED the fried broccoli with my salmon! I'd never had that before and it was delicious. The mustard glaze on the salmon was excellent.

Had a nice lunch at central table- chicken salad sandwich as excellent as was the veggie pizza. Was a reasonable price and not busy at all at lunchtime on a Tuesday. The open atmosphere and location convenient to BJH are both pluses.

Expected much more from this place. We were one of only two tables in the entire restaurant, our server was friendly, but for the price of the meal, the food was nothing great. Not bad either, just not overly good. My wifes Salmon entree was described on the menu with grits, and it was sent out with rice, with no explanation as to why. The radio running the house music was 'broken' according to the server, so the place was just dead silent and felt weird.

If you like a restaurant with modern decor, this is it. The space was wide open, with views looking out onto Euclid Ave. The food was pretty good, but I think the wine was priced slightly on the high side. I will put this on my list of places to visit again.

First time to Central Table and really enjoyed it! Went there before the Muny for dinner with my daughter and niece. Food was delicious! The chef even made a special order pizza for my daughter! Will definately come back again!

Everything was okay, but it just wasn't exciting enough to go back.

Our waitress was great. Very a tuned to likes and dislikes. My husband really liked the Bourbon chicken, tender, moist and tasty. I had Cornish Hen Ravioli and it was tasteless, the flavor came from the broth which was salty but no other flavor. Had high hopes with the portobello and ravioli. Would be better with more flavorful ravioli, like a mushroom or squash filling. And the addition of flavors, herbs, etc to broth. Otherwise, drinks were good, service was great and we'd go again.

Don't go here for dinner. We went on a Thursday evening and it was empty. Nevertheless, it took the bartender FOREVER to make 5 cocktails: 2 Cosmos, 2 vodka sodas, and a wine. The lone server on duty excused the wait, by saying "we do CRAFT cocktails." Horsepucky. These were easily-mixed drinks that any busy bar could whip out in an instant -- no muddling, infusing, or hocus pocus required. We then tried to order food. "Oh, we're out of that" and "Oh, that's no longer on the menu" was the refrain. Well, I'm reading it, so it's on the menu (which is dated less than a week ago). Maybe it's craft food, too. We decided to cut our losses, pay for the drinks, and split. Then the server discloses that she is the manager and is comping our drinks so we don't have a bad experience. Too late. And the manager is the only server? This place must be fixing to go sneakers up. We left a good tip for the bad bartender and got out of there -- fast.

A nice large and open space. Very airy and comfortable. Good food and good service. Very friendly people running the restaurant.

We made a reservation to dine there, but we changed our minds after having a couple of drinks at the bar. At 7:00 pm on a Saturday night, there were only 3 tables of people dining. Another table of 6 or so arrived after us, but the lack of patrons on a busy Saturday night concerned us. We looked a little closer at the menu and were really disappointed by the limited selections. This is not the same restaurant we went to awhile back. The selection was much less limited than our previous experience and overall, the place just felt sad. We left after a couple of drinks at the bar and dined on the patio nearby at Wildflower. I will say that the Moscow Mule I had at Central Table was really good! The restaurant unfortunately feels like it is nearing its end.

We must have found an old menu on google on line as the one we were given for dinner was skimpy in comparison. No sushi bar...just a couple of sashimi options. They did not have the wine we requested. We were there at 6:00 to 7:30 on a weeknight and there were few other patrons. I got a chicken and artichoke entrée which turned out to be a flatbread pizza. Ok, but not what I expected. My partner had an ahi tuna dish, very small and not impressive. I think this place is headed downhill. Service was good.

There's posh and trendy and then there's reficuloisly pretentious. The food portions were incredibly small...I ordered lobster tortellini and got 4 total. Considering we ordered off the heavier fare portion of the menu we were literally speechless when the food arrived. Unbelievable.

(Disclaimer here - I rarely ever leave reviews, so the fact that I am should say something) My fiancee and I decided at the last minute to go out for dinner and chose this restaurant due to two reasons, the close proximity and the high star rating (I believe it was 4). We arrived at 6:45 on Friday night and most of the restaurant was empty, which I found odd given its rating and CWE location. We were sat and our orders were taken quickly but then it took them quite a long time just to get our drinks to us with the understanding that it was literally not busy at all. We both ordered the same appetizer and entree (tuna tartare and pan seared scallops) and safe to say, both meals were nothing to write home about. The tuna tartare was quite bland and unappetizing, but I was hungry and still ate it so you can at least know it was edible. The entree on the other hand was so over-salted (both the scallops and risotto that it was on top of) that I couldn't even finish the whole meal. It's safe to say that I won't be going back again and would not recommend it to anyone. Just was quite disappointed with the overall experience (food and service) given the high rating (which is very misleading), but would give it credit for its nice atmosphere and design.

Waited 20 minutes for valet, no sign, could not get car. Then valet got mad because we only gave her $5.00.

The trout dish was very subpar compared to other restaurants, with 3 thin fried pieces of fish only. The ice cream that was to have Carmel hardly had that flavor. The cab wine selection was good. The service was very good.

We are taking this restaurant off our list.

We went to Central Table for dinner. I later realized that the food station concept is only offered at lunch, so I was a little disappointed in the more limited sit down choices for dinner -my bad since I should have done better research. We started with the spicy salmon roll. The cilantro topping was a nice touch, though at $13 the roll was overpriced. For my main, I had the garlic chicken pizza. Tasty wood fired crust but there wasn't enough garlic flavor for my liking. My husband had the pappardelle - he thought it was fine but nothing overly special. Our service was excellent with prompt attention to drink refills and our courses were served efficiently.

Solid food and service. Nothing exceptional but certainly worthy of a return when out for a casual evening.
