Awesome chicken and shrimp pasta. Great service. Comfortable atmosphere.
The food was amazing and our waitress was great! Definitely recommend it !
Great food and ambiance for a special occasion dinner. Waitress was not very personable or friendly though, and in the past we've had great waitstaff, so disappointed in the service.
My husband ordered the 1/2 chicken and it was the size of a Cornish hen. Very misleading and way over priced for what he got. He said it tasted very good though.
I ordered the Chicken Francese. The portions were great and would have liked more Alfredo pasta. It was delicious. My entrée was cheaper than my husbands.
The onion rings are great!
My husband asked for 2 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream and was served with a beautiful dish topped with strawberries and whip cream with strawberry sauce. Very very nice.
It was a bit noisy for us.
The staff was very friendly. Our waiter was very attentive. There were plenty of wonderful choices on the menu. The brunch was very good and the price was very reasonable. My friend and I enjoyed the atmosphere. I was glad that the noise level was low enough for my friend and I to visit easily. I will come back again.
Elizabeth was our server and she was amazing. The best we’ve had in awhile. She made our experience.
Great food as always! Even witnessed a proposal!! 💍
Absolutely loved this place! Glad I chose it to do my proposal. Everyone was friendly and the food was spot on! Keep it up :)
Service was excellent. I had the bass which was the seafood special. It was okay. Wished I would have gotten the cavetlli instead.
Everything was excellent!
Food was good, but not sure why Pasta & Pizza required a 45 minute cooking time.
Centro is consistently great. Food, service and atmosphere are terrific. Centro continues to be my favorite Des Moines restaurant.
Only complaint if any would be that it is so loud. Great food and service though.
One of my favorite restaurants, always good service and food!
We started in the bar for Happy Hour (Rain Water Martini is a must!) and ended with dinner in the dining room. The staff was extremely accommodating, the service was stellar and the food was delectable. Our party of six, including one vegan and one vegetarian, was very pleased with the entire experience!
Always a wonderful dinner, service, and experience. Closest thing to NYC in Des Moines.
Great experience, as always! Manager was amazing - we forgot the measuring syringe for our teething one-year-old, and she got us a measuring spoon from the kitchen. We also brought a large group, visitors from out of town, and the server was so gracious and patient during the busy lunch hour. Love, love Centro!
Centros has been one of our favorite restaurants for a long time. We love the homemade pastas, the breads, the (almost every one of them) delicious menu items. Always a fun place to be. Always great staff. Always great food!
We love Centro, but the prices have skyrocketed. We ordered two spinach salads, one with chicken, one with salmon. Including tip, our bill was nearly $50. For two salads. No drinks. No desserts.
Excellent food and service
Great atmosphere. The food and service were top-notch. Centro will be my new Go-To for business dinners.
Other than being seated near the kitchen, we had a fine experience
The food was very very good. Appetizers through dessert. Service was very average. Took my drink order and left. Flagged him down later to take GF’s drink order. Never did come back to refill my soda.
Great place for lunch and dinner! We went to Centro prior to a show at the Civic Center. We ordered the Brussels sprouts appetizer and and pizza special - a white top with bacon and potato.
Everything was delicious! The restaurant remodel looks great.
Our waiter got busy, so we had to wait for our bill. Other than that he was very good and attentive.
Went to dinner to celebrate a friends engagement and a concert while I was in town. We showed up a little later than our reservation because the roads were icy, and it seemed like the host was mad we were a few minutes late. We kind of felt unwelcome. Then we were seated in an odd location which felt like it was very tight next to other guests. We ordered almost right away because the menu was simple to understand and we had an idea of what we wanted. We got our food less than 15 minutes later and felt like we were very rushed to get out by the staff. Yes quick dining is often nice but we wanted to sit and chat but felt a little unwelcome. Food was great though so it helped balance a little
Second visit while staying at Dez Lux Hotel in Des Moines. Service is fabulous and the food very good! The Pork Chop entree is enormous and perfect for a shared dinner for two!
This was our third time at Centro and once again, everything was great. Great service and great food.
We came on a night which was already icy, and looking to become worse, but we soon forgot all about it when our server came to our table and waited very nicely on four of us, and five of us when the last person of our group joined us. Three of the people had never been to Centro's previously, and I think we all enjoyed it very much.
When you leave this place all your clothes smell like burnt food. Not very pleasant.
The food at Centro is always delicious but the service makes Centro outstanding. I went to Centro for brunch on Sunday and had wonderful service. Benjamin was a great server that always kept my water glass full and had great customer service. He was knowledgeable about the menu. He took his time with us and was very professional. He was very friendly and made the experience at Centro a excellent one. Also the breakfast pizza is amazing!
The only issue was that when our food came out it had onions all over it. The waiter took it back and brought out a new entree but we wished thatbthe menu would have said it had onions.
Everything was absolutely amazing!!! Loved it and can’t wait to go back!
Valentine’s Day date
Food was great. We both thought it was cold in restaurant even though not seated by door. Waitress was excellent and checked back frequently!
Overall the food was great. Service was below par. After waiting awhile (@the time it was slow) she asked us for our drinks, we figured she’d come back and ask us for our order after our drinks came, after we picked our drinks she blurted what about for dinner? Do you know what you want? She spilled my husbands drink all over me, apologized and ran off quickly. We ordered the ribeyes which came out plopped on our plates unlike all the other tables their food came out with great presentation. You spend money on a night out and the overall experience was not what we are use to at Centro.
My wife and I had a great time. The food was prepared perfectly. Great service great atmosphere. We will be headed her more often for date night.
We have dined at Centro since it opened many years ago..and we have never been disapointed. The food preparation and quality is excellent as is presentation. The wait-staff (servers) are top-notch and well trained. We particularly notice that our server always seems to have his/her timing down to attend to our every need from beverages to dessert, but without hovering at the table or interrupting too often. 5-stars and thumbs up as always!!
We had a wonderful Valentine's dinner at Centro. It's a splurge for us and we felt like the value was good.
Great food and absolutely amazing service. This restaurant is great for business lunches or any other occasion.
