Centro Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
There was a prix fixe menu for Christmas, $39.95 per person for three courses, including a vegetarian option. The service was professional amd courteous and not obtrusive. And, we weren’t rushed! The noise level is higher than we like, a pervasive problem with restaurants lately. However, is was not unbearable and we could hear each other and didn’t have to shout.
We were staying at the Omni and decided to make reservations for our anniversary. Was disappointed the restaurant did not acknowledge our anniversary in anyway. We were pretty much the only couple in the restaurant for a good hour. Why ask when making reservations what the occasion was. A small piece of chocolate or something would have been nice. We could have make reservations at any number of restaurants in Providence, but made them at Centro.
Dining at Centro Providence was an amazing experience! The service was A-1 with our server Anna. She was funny yet professional, attentive and very helpful with suggestions as this was our first time eating here. We also met the General Manager Alex who was also pleasant. We dined on a Thursday night so it was quiet and had great ambiance. The food was AMAZING!!! I had the scallops and my mom had the Chicken Piccata. We also shared the calamari which had a twist with a sweet chili taste. Every last bite was eaten. Plates clean! Then I talked mom into a dessert and we agreed on the tiramisu (also great). Ever since that day, nothing else has tasted quite as good. Kudos to the chef! We'll be back for sure.

The very BEST part of the experience was the Valet Parking (and wow, that should speak volumes). Insanely slow and insipid service ... truly beyond ridiculous. When a party of four takes 2.5+ hours, you have clearly stumbled into some sort of Twilight Zone of Ineptitude. Food was uninspired and tired --- exacerbated by the timing being WAY off and several meals "resting" on the table while others we waiting to be served. Again, a party of FOUR people. We had to send two meals back to be re-heated ... and I am pretty sure they microwaved them to bring them back to temp (as they were veal and chicken and both came back rubbery). Quite simply ... an awful experience from super-slow start to lack-luster finish. I strongly urge EVERYONE to eat elsewhere ... anywhere else ... just not here. Ever. For any reason.
My wife & I stayed at the Omni for NYE and decided to have our pre-party dinner at Centro. We arrived early and were promptly seated. I ordered the NYE surf & turf special: 8 oz. filet w/ 2 jumbo grilled shrimp. Steak was perfectly cooked! Could've been salted a little more, but overall no complaints. My wife also got the filet and she enjoyed it as well. Waiter was very attentive and constantly refilled our water (we had gone to the gym prior to our meal, so we were thirsty!). Great start to our NYE celebration!
We were here for dinner (late lunch?) on Christmas Day. The prix fixe menu was exactly what would be expected for a Christmas dinner, and we both had the prime rib. We have no complaints about the restaurant for the price point. (Prix fixe was $40/person for 3 courses). Had it been more expensive than that, we would have thought that the food did not live up to the price.
Service was slow. After waiting a half hour for a waiter, then an hour for food, the soup was cold. Although they took the soup off the bill, there was not other attempt to right the experience. It was Christmas Day so I know help was tight. Would not recommend this restaurant.
