Excellent food. Although I was clear they we were there for my husband’s birthday ( I put it in the reservation not even a verbal “happy Birthday” from the waiter. The service was otherwise pleasant.
Pasta and cocktails were great. Branzino (whole) was overcooked and dry. Also not seasoned at all.
Excellent food and service and a lovely setup for outdoor dining. One of our favorite restaurants.
Very nice overall but the fish were overcooked and dried out.
I loved the ambiance and the waiters were super nice! The food was exceptional. I’ll be back!
Perfection tastes so good. It was lovely to be outdoors with such beautiful food.
We love Centrolina. Food is always special. Attentive service and lovely ambiance. One of our “go to” restaurants
Food and drinks were fantastic. Service and wine recommendations by Goran were awesome. Had a great time. Will definitely come back.
The food and service was outstanding, highly recommend!
Plates are reasonable size, filled with exceptional yums. Cocktails are also very well done. Space out tables are nice. Excellent date. Definitely will return.
An outstanding meal of the sablefish and the verde salad combined for a delicious meal. Great wine recommendation and quite likely the best service in DC.
Fabulous!!! Every aspect. Food, service and setting!!!
Food was incredible.
This is my 4th time to Centrolina and as always, it is wonderful. We had the burrata with figs and grilled octopus for appetizers. Wish we had had more. Flavors with the octopus were excellent. Then branzino and salmon. Both cooked perfectly. The fish was moist and delicate. The wine list is exceptional and not over priced. Nice to see some Sicilian wines on the menu.
Good is impeccable. Ambiance is perfect. Highly recommend.
Food was good, not great. Service was superior though
Centrolina never disappoints. Great food and signature drinks.
This has been a favorite since it opened. They continue to meet high expectations even with all the post-covid challenges. Always first class.
Awesome service from Tyler. Creative and incredibly tasty food. Interesting wine list.
Was very hot. AC was not working well
We were 15 min late for an 8:45pm reservation. The hostess noted a table would be shortly available so we sat at the bar and got drinks to wait for the outdoor seating. The bartender and another host informed us that the kitchen would be closing soon so our best best was to go ahead and order our food at the bar. Shortly thereafter the initial hostess came back to let us know our table would be ready in a few minutes and if we could be all of our order in when we sat, the kitchen would accomodate us. Seemed that the communication between staff wasn't effective. The bartender also audibly berated a busboy in front of us, a little uncomfortable. We placed our order and then the waiter came back to let us know we were given the wrong menu so one of the items was not available. Once all of that was settled, we did enjoy the outdoor seating, the waiter was pleasant, and the food was above average in flavor and creativity.
Centrolina is one of our favorites! My husband and I we celebrating my birthday. The meal was delicious. Always meets our expectations.
Great service great food
We enjoyed our date night
Wonderful meal and service. Fresh and creative food, and service and attentiveness that couldn’t be beat. First time there. Will definitely be back.
A great experience with fine Italian foods and drinks. I do recommend that place!
Both the food and the service were fantastic…thanks!
Lovely as usual!
Slow service and noisy. Burrata appetizer was tasty, lamb main course was not cooked well. Touchless pay option was appreciated.
The food, wine, service and ambiance were excellent. The attention to detail was unbelievable. Will definitely be returning again soon!
Absolutely the best! Fantastic staff and chef’s team!
Food is fresh and excellent.
Amazing food, atmosphere, and service! We enjoyed a late lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. It was very quiet; I can imagine there'd be a bit more buzz during dinnertime on the weekend and weeknights. Michele was our server—he was wonderful! Super accommodating and he let me practice my Italian and was very gracious and patient (and a good teacher, to boot!). Our drinks were tasty (Campari Spritz, Italian Derby). We ordered a couple of pasta dishes (fettuccine w/bolognese and pappardelle w/mushrooms), but then decided to share a piatto secondo because they looked so good! We shared the halibut, and I'm so glad we ordered it. All of the flavors were on point. We enjoyed gelati e sorbetti for dessert, as well as an amaro. This was our first time dining at Centrolina—and I see many more visits in the future! Definitely a place we'll bring friends and family to, to share wonderful food and experiences with. Grazie e ci vediamo!
Fresh and delicious food with outstanding service.
fantastic food and the service was impeccable. Great suggestions from the waiter on food and wine.
Excellent food! Wine and service.
Great staff and ambiance of big cocktail party. Had a sweet pink Moscow mule and snacked on the candied ginger. Got the duck for dinner and had me rethinking my whole life. Would come every night if that were in the cards
Centrolina never disappoints us!
Excellent food, excellent service excellent atmosphere.
Great service and food.
Centrolina never disappoints! Great food, terrific service, a wonderful time. It feels good to be back!
Took 35mins for food to come out. The food portion size would not satisfy a 5 year old.
