My wife and I very much enjoyed the food and service. Had eaten breakfast there several times, but first time for dinner. The taste of the foods were terrific!

We eat there often and always enjoy the experience. Burgers and fish & chips are the best in town. This time I had the Mahi Mahi and it was excellent.

This was my first experience at Central Grille. The food and service were very good. Ambiance is like any upgraded diner in my opinion but a good neighborhood reliable. I would not avoid this restaurant for a simple meal with a full bar available.

Really yummy, especially the short rib sandwich and the kale and artichoke dip. We were in the area for an event and took a chance on this place and were really pleased. If we lived in the area we would definitely go back.

We were staying nearby & stopped by Central Grille. We had great advice from our server & had the truffle brussel sprouts, short rib, roasted salmon, spicy ahi on crispy rice cakes & deviled eggs. Everything was delicious & served quickly at the right temperature. The brussels were advertised at "addictive" & it was an accurate description! I couldn't stop eating them! We enjoyed our dinner at CG & would definitely return the next time we're in the area.

It smelled funny when we walked in... a little barnyard-like. We almost left, but were staying at a hotel nearby and didn't want to deal with getting our car and going somewhere else. It was kinda cute inside, and the food was better than expected. Nothing terribly remarkable, but it was solid. Service was friendly, and prices were fair.

Central Grille was clearly trying to attract a much younger crowd than we are! Many TVs (I don't think you could get to a table where you couldn't see a TV), & the music was techno-grinding. The food was good- the best thing was the corn, & the service was good. We might order their food delivered, but we wouldn't dine in. Too bad, because it's walking distance from where we live. If you're in your twenties, this is the place for you!

Casual, fun, friendly gastro pub/upscale coffee shop ambience. Like BJ's atmosphere, but better, more creative menu. Moderately priced, and resaonable for everyday. Big selection of menu items from simple and inexpensive (sandwiches, appetizers, salads) to slightly higher priced for things like steaks or short ribs. Food is really good. Went for Dine in LA. The meal was delicious, good portions at a fair price for what you got (a creative appetizer, Filet steak, and creative dessert. Impressive food quality for a casual place.

This restaurant excepts large groups and wAs very accommodating even when we showed up with 2 extra people. Service was a little slow but with a group of 13 they did a great job. They also have a large variety of food choices that made it easy for diverse appetites ranging from vegan, gluten free and 2 picky little girls. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a group

Superb staff members. Each of them is refreshingly positive about her/his work and consistently provides excellent service. The menu is varied, creative and excellent in taste. The interior is open with large windows on each outside wall of the dining rooms.

I strongly recommend the Central Grille for singles, small groups, large groups no matter what the occasion.

I usually have the sand dabs which I've enjoyed. However, I had the beef short ribs this time as I was very hungry. I have never had a meal that was that much over salted. As I said I usually rate the restaurant higher, but either the quality has gone down or it was an off night.

First visit won't be our last. Convenient large private parking lot behind restaurant and only a block off of the 210. Varied menu that our group of four made good use of; from the 'monster burger' to a veggie salad option. the brussel sprout appetizer was an unusual treat. Superb service from an ever attentive waitress. Our Open Table reservation delivered an excellent booth with no waiting upon arrival, and the hostess anticipated our arrival and warmly greeted us. We all agreed that every aspect of our weekend evening dinner was an absolute winner. We'll be back !

This place is close to my house so we often walk there. The food and drinks are always great. I don’t think I’ve ever had a negative experience in the 25+ times I’ve eaten here. There is one little thing that irks me. You can only receive happy hour prices if you sit in the bar area. Why? If I’m having a meal with friends early, why do I have to sit at the bar to receive the lower price for the same drink?
