    The staff was wonderful like at all Cameron Mitchell restaurants! We felt very taken care of and had a personal connection with all of our waiters. The food was delicious, the main entrées were a tad smaller than expected. However, the appetizers were bigger than expected, and the bread given at the beginning of dinner was very hardy so definitely didn’t leave feeling hungry. Can’t wait to go back!

    My husband says the pork chops were the best he has ever had (and he knows his pork chops!). Parking was easy by valet. Food and drinks served quickly, and well prepared. Server Maggie was there when we needed something, otherwise left us to our conversation. Would recommend whole-heartedly for anyone seeking to have an exquisite meal in a stunning but comfortable restaurant.

    Our first time at Cento -- party of 6, my son's birthday. Food was exceptional. Cocktails were very good if a small notch below food (and slightly overpriced). Ambience was super - beautiful. Server Alexandra was excellent -- on point, great suggestions, super attentive.

    The food was delicious and the service was superb. Atmosphere was romantic and added to the experience. We would definitely go back. Read some reviews that it is expensive but you pay for quality and experience. We’ve paid more for meals that were not as good. Ignore those comments. Reminds us of “M” sad to say it’s gone.

    Cento is completely overrated. Columbus has far better options that are half the price. We had the appetizers, main, dessert and drinks and the food ranged from over seasoned to confused flavor profile to downright skimpy portions. This is not Cameron Mitchell’s star as some would have you believe. The service was mediocre at best. Save yourself the time and money and go someplace else

    High-end. Worth the visit. I'm not convinced that their Caesar salad needs to be served at the table, since the dressing itself is already prepared. So the tableside service is just the tossing around of some lettuce, parmesan, and dressing which to me is no big deal. Veal for $65 is too expensive.

    We are returning customers and per usual, the experience was amazing. Luke is always attentive and exceptional. We had the pleasure of meeting Catherine for the first time. She was quick to assist with needed dietary modifications. The two together were absolutely spectacular. The Halibut was light, flaky and full of flavor. Absolutely will be back

    One of the best spots in Columbus. Food is excellent and service is the best in Columbus. A must visit. Sommelier is amazing and knows the best wine choice. We love wine and learn something new each time. Wife and I come often and our favorite spot for dinner. The best expresso martinis in Columbus hands down.

    My husband and I snagged a spot for Valentine's Day and it was delicious. Their specials were fantastic, service was great and it's a perfect date night spot. Highly recommend their martini, endive salad and salmon crudo (all on their standard menu). Definitely a favorite of ours across all Cameron Mitchell restaurants. Can't wait to come back!

    I celebrated my anniversary last night at Cento! We had the most amazing time with them. We first arrived and couldn't help but notice how beautiful the restaurant and patio was. I can't wait to go back when it's warmer and sit outside and enjoy the weather. We arrived a little early so we were able to have a drink at the bar before we were seated. Our bartender was fantastic. Once we got seated at our table in the bar area, the hostess acknowledged our anniversary as did our server. The service was amazing and the food was also outstanding! We got the lasagna, pesto and whipped ricotta. Because it was our anniversary, we even got a congratulatory dessert! We had such a great time and will definitely be back.

    Upon arrival we were promptly seated at our table. The wait staff was for the most part excellent, though the times between courses were a bit longer than expected, particularly at the beginning of our meal. The food was very good and rich with average size portions. We were told the salads would serve two people, but in my opinion that was just barely enough for two people. Overall we had a good meal and a good time at Cento.
