Excellent service amd food
It was warmer than I would prefer.
Took my beautiful fiancé there for our engagement dinner and had a great time. Would recommend this for any special occasion.
Fabulous restaurant. Loved every second and would definitely go back soon.
Have dined here three times now and it has become one of my preferred venues for business and pleasure in El Paso, TX. Food is spectacular. Staff is always friendly and personable and very knowledgeable of menu offerings. Great ambience with a reasonable noise level making business meetings comfortable. Highly recommend dining here at least once!
Menu prices not transparent, several items have no price and for a returning customer, noticed the increase in prices, especially the Lamb Rack, I am sure future customers will be surprised with price increases. If prices are displayed then it shouldn’t be a problem.
Hi Kevin! First, let us begin with how much we appreciate your continued support and we thank you for sharing your concerns! The Colorado Lamb has been increasing in price and the price fluctuates from day to day. We have to account for the market price of the lamb. The menu prices are never blank. I want to make sure we point that out to you and all our guests.
Birthday dinner. One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to!
Thank you for sharing your special day with us!
Cafe Central has always been our go-to restaurant for special occasions because they never disappoint from their "dowton abby" service to their food preparation.
Cafe Central never disappoints! The ribeye was juicy; the salmon and lobster risotto was sublime, as well as, the bacon wrapped prawns. Of course, their signature Green Chile soup was fantastic. We love dining at CC as the staff pamper us and we feel like royalty!
We did miss our parting gift of their delicious cookies(LOL).
Took wife for her Birthday, Angus tenderloin was not cooked to her liking. Sent it back twice. Still didn’t get it right.
Happy Birthday Babe :(
Celebrated our anniversary with dinner. Place was exceptional! Great service and food!
Thanks Adam for making our anniversary awesome! We enjoyed everything and the service. Everyone was attentive and welcoming.
The food was good but the service was too slow. It was weekday/lunchtime and there weren't many customers yet lunchtime took 2 hrs. Too long to get a menu, too long to take our order, too long to get our food.
Thank you for sharing your special day with us!
As always, best place in El Paso, TX, for a romantic dinner, celebration or business dinner, I to thank the ownership, managerial and all staff for the great time we had, my wife and I are delighted with the memories of last night’s efforts by all of you!
May The Lord bless y’all!
Thank you so much for being our guest!! We hope to see you back again soon!
Outstanding restaurant. Clearly worth five stars. Innovative food; professional service. Highly recommended.
Thank you Kathleen we appreciate you being our guest!!
Cafe Central never and I mean NEVER disappoints! Best place to have a great dinner with loved ones
Everything was fantastic, from the ambiance, the service, the food (sea bass was cooked to perfection!). The best place to have any celebration or business meeting.
Paul the pianist has the music level just right, and the cool ambiance makes you feel like you are part of the "in" crowd.
Just love this place!
Incredible service, drinks, and food. The best!
Loved how patient the staff was with our big group. They even stored and brought out the cake we bought with a nice big celebration. The lamb and lo ester ravioli were incredible.
I ordered the Tenderloin Carpaccio and the dry aged steak. I then washed it down with an old fashioned and a glass of the house bourbon. All was amazing but the best part of my evening was how friendly and professional the staff was.
Didn’t his the mark this time. Service and food were good, but usually stellar.
Music was too loud to enjoy, over powered the table conversation. We had Scottish salmon and sea bass, and wine and cocktails.
Hi Cindi, we are sorry about your most recent experience, and that is wasn't up to standards! Do you mind sharing some details about your visit? What day, time and your server if you where able to catch a name? Thank you so much!
Manny was an amazing server really made my birthday a day to remember!!
Thank you Tanya! We will commend him for his amazing service!
Excellent place. I have nothing bad to say only compliments. Great wine list.
Thank you so much!!
We went there to celebrate our anniversary and we loved it. Service was amazing!!! Our waiter, Manuel, was absolutely the best.
Thank you Isreal, we will commend his attentiveness and service! Thank you for sharing your special day with us!
Great food, service, and meals. The level of professionalism is unmatched. We will be returning for more special occasions.
Thank you so much for your comments! We appreciate you being our guest!
Piano playing was nice but added Sax and was loud to talk to each other. Service seemed slow tonite, no refills on water, bread during time there. Brought wrong mixed drink but food still good.
The service was amazing! Must go for any special occasion
Wow! What an exceptional meal. The food was an absolute culinary delight. Hats off to the Chef for being so creative with the melding of the flavors. The bar was creating incredibly creative crafty cocktails. Was that rose water in the margarita? You left me pondering that thought. The Old Fashion was top notch. Another amalgamation of exceptional flavors. Customer service was firing on all cylinders. Hats off to the General Manager for managing such a well oiled machine. Lastly, thank you for the birthday card and the sparkler on the Tres Leches Cake! You have set the bar very high for what an absolutely amazing dining experience should be!
Great food, service, and ambiance. Perfect for business meetings.
