Great service and food with outstanding Bloody Mary bar.
Food and service was great! My wife and I went there for her Birthday and loved it !
Spending time with my son after the MS Walk.
Met a friend for dinner and drinks. We were able to enjoy the beautiful evening with outside dining.
We had a great server and it was a lovely dinner.
Great, as usual! Please keep those brussels sprouts on the menu forever!!!
Dependable food, dependable service. This is our go to place for family celebrations where everyone can find something they like. Nothing exotic or trendy- just solid and good for lots of occasions.
We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation and the hostess was able to seat us immediately. The pace of the meal was excellent; the bread is to die for; the food and wine were extremely tasty. I love the inside/outside vibe during nice weather, and the floral arrangements gave the restaurant an elevated sense of sophistication.
Wonderful service, great food. What more could you ask for?
The food is always good. Sat outside, it was lovely & quiet.
This is a flagship restaurant if you are ever in Des Moines. We are lucky to have this quality of restaurant in a mid size city.
We were passing through and had to see why the rave?!
Pros: Very flavorful food. Great atmosphere. Could get in with reservation quickly on a Thursday night at 6:45pm. We had the
Menu items we ordered: Brussels sprouts to start...these were deep fried but I would recommend! Salad had great flavor and the toppings were fresh. Kids cheese pizza was made from scratch and my daughter ate it all. My husband had a ham, egg warmed sandwich. He didn’t talk the whole meal if that tells you how much he liked it. He’s normally talking through every meal.
Cons: hostess was not very friendly/professional. Lots of fried foods.
Worth the trip!
Fabulous dinner at Centro! Great service, sat outside on the terrace, wonderful entrees (halibut and fillet trio), exceptional cocktails and wine, and an over-the-top dessert. Highly recommend!
The food was fabulous! I have already recommended this restaurant. Our waiter was ok, but most of the other wait staff was great!
The food was excellent as always. We each had a steak that was cooked exactly to order. The onion rings are amazing! A half order is more than enough as an appetizer for two.
The only complaint is the noise. It is usually pretty loud in the restaurant and the tables are kind of close together.
VERY loud but great food
In Des Moines for my son’s graduation. The restaurant was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. The only problem was we were too full for dessert. Steak, chicken, pasta and paninis were all great.
We were attending a concert at the temple, and we were late arriving for our reservations because of a storm. I called ahead and they held our reservation. We only had an hour between the time we sat down at our table and the start of the concert. Our server made sure we got our wine and food in a timely fashion, prepared very nicely, and we were at the concert on time. However, I recommend that you do allow yourself time to savor their good food.
I definitely recommend eating at this restaurant. Not only was our food good, but the service was excellent!
The food and service was excellent! This is one of the best restaurants in Des Moines.
As always awesome!
Always very good service at Centro. Great food, diverse menu. Would like more craft beer options.....like the Open Table because Centro is hard to get into. Derek the Host on Friday night was very good, very accommodating.
Amazing as usual! Great variety in appetizers & excellent meals. Service always impeccable.
Had an amazing 10th anniversary date!!! Love this restaurant!
We had the special risotto and the special pasta for the evening. Both were wonderful. Look forward to a return visit to this restaurant.
I can always depend on Centro to have delicious food and a varied menu. The staff and service is top notch. I have probably had 30-40 dining experiences and have never been disappointed with the food, service, and ambiance! Having a choice of the bar, dining room, and patio adds to the dining experience.
One of my overall favorite restaurants in Des Moines. Great for all occasions. Great atmosphere and food, for a reasonable price.
everyone at our table of four was satisfied with their food and the wine was exceptionally good. One of our guests even took a picture of the bottle as a reminder of a selection she would request again. The wait staff was informative and engaging and helped to make our experience a positive one. The only criticism I have is that we had a salad order requesting no onions and that did not happen but they were easy enough to remove.
Nice restaurant. A tad overpriced. Great waiter. It was a Sunday brunch and quite noisy.
Centro is the best restaurant in town, hands down. Great for lunch, brunch or dinner.
First time here and very delicious! A little on the spendy side though. Overall great experience. Service was quick.
Had great service, and the food was ready in a timely fashion. All our meals were cooked perfectly.
Great food and service service as always!! You can’t go wrong with any of the menu items but the pizza is delicious!
Always great food and service!
Delicious appetizers. In fact we filled up on appetizers and instead of getting the pasta I love, I could only handle a salad and grilled cheese sandwich!
Our fish dish, a special, was way over cooked. I thought the prices were a little on the high side. The wine choices were excellent and our server did a good job.
We have been going to Centro lately on Mondays for the Happy hour and pizza specials and it is Fabulous. We usually sit in the bar and the staff there is great. They are very friendly and help if you ask for suggestions. The salads are great! The Pizza is Fabulous EVERY TIME! We Love going to Centro! Check it out, its a great time and sitting in the bar you can watch all the activity going on outside.
Was a little disappointed in the lack of herbs and spices in the food. I want to have that wow moment in my mouth so I can brag on the dining cuisine I had with my friends. Service was Great! We loved how Benjamin took care of us and a few others. Great atmosphere. If was worth the drive from Oskaloosa for our 1st Anniversary.
Food was good, asked them in the request box to have a rose on the table for our anniversary, it did not happen. Was a little disappointed.
