Paulo our server was very friendly and professional. The food was very good and the serving sizes were very generous. When we arrived at about 6 o’clock, the noise from the bar area was deafening. We considered leaving. We are glad we stayed. The noise Diminished about 20 minutes later (there apparently was a large group in there which left the premises together). Then again, the food was excellent. We will come back.
Food was barely edible. I would not recommend this as a dining choice.
Loved it and would go again without hesitation! Awesome Food Selection!
Nice service and menu
Very helpful to accommodate food allergies! They worked with us on the menu options and we will visit be back. Nice meal and easy location within Omni when visiting town. Special thanks to Patrice for her help with the menu!
As always, the food was excellent and the service was great!
Delicious meal, beautiful room, great service- couldn't ask for more on date night.
Food good. Waiter seemed like he was in training
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.
Very nice but the beer was warm and the service was a little slow. Food was just ok but atmosphere and server were very nice.
Celebrated my boyfriends birthday here with his family. The menu has food for any picky eater. The staff were very attentive, food was delicious. It can get pretty loud, but we didn’t mind it was perfect for us!
Great meal! The whole staff was great. Food was delicious. One of my coworkers is gluten free and they were very helpful with her meal. We all enjoyed 🙂
We had a family dinner for 7 that was delicious and managed to meet our varied dietary requirements! Gwen, our server, was excellent and rolled with a lot of requests. We had a great time and enjoyed all!
A better dessert menu . We went to another restaurant for dessert
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.
Great food great service, the only issue is you have to pay for parking
Clam chowder was too thick and tasted like it had been warmed up in a microwave oven. Drink was OK. Eggplant appetizer dish was delicious but dry and needed more tomato sauce.
Our server had all the graciousness of a prison matron. Calamari starter, shrimp penne and salmon all came in an oily bath. I'll stop there.
The service and food was great! Gwen is the best waitress.
Great spot for Mother's Day brunch. Our server was so bubbly and got us everything we needed with a smile. We'll be back!
Used a Groupon. Not worth full price.
The restaurant was nice but it had that typical hotel restaurant feel. The food was very good. The service was excellent. For what you get, it was on the expensive side.
Food was ok, but over priced. The service was slow. It was really loud in the restaurant. Nice to try, but we won't be back.
Went out to lunch with my girlfriend and was very impressed by the milkiness of their clam chowder as a starter. On the other hand, the meal was only sufficient but the prices were about what you would expect
Excellent restaurant have been a number of times and always have had a great meal and service only complaint was the Bolognese totally different than last time which I would have rated one of the best to Would not order again
Avoid Avoid Avoid Avoid.
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.
Very good food. Overpriced, with entrees ~ 20s-30s.
Delicious food and friendly service. We really enjoyed our evening while staying at the hotel.
Beautiful place, excellent service, noise level was obnoxious. Table next to us full of drunks, one man contributing to the noise- I heard was the OWNER of this establishment. Very unprofessional. Got out of there quickly after that. Only complaint.
Great atmosphere, great service, Excellent food
The restaurant is in the Omni Hotel in Providence, so it was very convenient since we were staying at the hotel. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.
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!
Great Restaurant, nicely situated in downtown Providence adjacent to the Providence Place Mall. I would highly recommend. We made a last minute choice to try it, and we'd absolutely go back again. Whole staff and server Gwen were great.
Great evening, went for drinks and dinner on New Year's Eve. Great food, service, and atmosphere.
Dinner was delicious and ambiance was great Waiter was,so friendly. It was Thursday night around 7 sorry I forgot his name. Thank you. Jon And Dee
PS The kale sale with watermelon was awesome! Yum!
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.
Christmas Day... wonderful service and food was perfect
