Bar Cento, located in historic Ohio City, offers a creative European-inspired menu that focuses on regional and sustainable ingredients sourced from local farms and purveyors. The cuisine is served with a rustic presentation inside the sophisticated yet comfortable dining room, accented with haute-bucolic décor and a sixteen seat bar built using wood from a reclaimed Amish barn. Our award winning seasonal menu is complimented by an extensive and carefully prepared wine list. Bar Cento, recently touted as having the best pizza in Ohio by Food Network, serves food till 2am every day of the year. Come check out one of the premier dining destinations in Cleveland.

Bar Cento complements the international flavor of McNulty's Bier Markt, a Belgian beer bar right next door on West 25th Street.

Had a wonderful dinner at the newly reopened Bar Cento. Has all the old favorites and some great new options. Front of house staff was wonderful and knowledgeable, kitchen turned out amazing food. Social distance guidelines and sanitation standards strictly adhered to. Robyn took care of us at the bar; great wine and cocktail service. Overall great experience that left us feeling happy as well as comfortable being in a restaurant.

Great place where you can eat with your dog ! The staff were very friendly to us and our dog. My husband enjoyed the Festivus beer and went to the brewery store across the street to buy some to take home. Loved the Autumn Rose cocktail. Food tasted great. This was our third time here and we will make it a point to come whenever we visit Cleveland.

Food was pretty bad. We left most of it on the table uneaten. Worse was the pumpkin ravioli. Greasy tasteless. Nauseating.
Sadly one of the only places to go on west 25 when all other places are backed up with long wait times.

Ambience and service were great. Everything we ate was delicious. My only complaint was the quantity. I ordered the Cappelletti and received about 6 small stuffed pastas in a roasted corn sauce. I'm not a big eater at all, but this was a ridiculously small amount of food. I would definitely go back, but would not order this dish again.

The pommes frites are amazing, the garlic and rosemary make the already great fries just perfect. I also had the thin crust Bianco white pizza and it was so delicious and makes me wish I lived closer so I could eat it more often. Service was great, and it was really nice to get a table outside and people-watch while eating. I suggest looking at the great happy hour specials. Highly recommend this place!

Bar Cento is a real find. Charcuterie is house made. They break their own lamb and pork.
The selection of Belgian beers and ales was amazing.
We were particularly impressed with Chris, the manager, and with Seela (sp?) who was totally knowledgeable about the charcuterie.
