OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Charming restaurant in Met Life Building. The onion soup and beef bourguignon were excellent. The wine menu was impressive. The server was attentive and helpful. We went at 5:30 on Sat night and it was almost empty. By 7:30 it was more crowded. There is a front room with a beautiful fireplace and the rest of the restaurant features a view of the kitchen and chefs. You can hear the rumbling of trains from Grand Central Station, but it’s not disruptive.

My first meeting at Centro of 2018 and there will likely be 20 more. It is a perfect spot for breakfast or lunch meetings.

Usually 4 or 5 stars. Went after 9pm, food was very mediocre. Kitchen must have been empty

Great location for meeting friends who commute from grand central. Authentic varied mostly french menu where we can always find something to choose. The French onion soup was perfect and the croque Monsieur and salad was a bit elaborate but so delicious and copious inwas able to take half home for my dinner. Crusty fresh baguette and spreadable butter was too good to pass up. Very satisfying lunch tho a bit pricy.

The service along with the food was perfect ! Our seating by the fireplace added to the ambiance of the evening.
