The soup was delicious and tasty. The entree was well done and I had to return it. The replacement steak was cooked medium to raw. Was nicer and had leftover. The key lime pie was yummy.
Would come back.

Highly recommended. It looked like nothing special; we just chose it because of its proximity to our lodging, but we were blown away by the inventive menu, overall value, and exceptional service. We were a party of 5, all made different selections, and all truly loved each course--appetizers, entrees, desserts, drinks. We're not regularly in the Glendale so sadly we may not be able to come back, but sure hope this place is around if we are back in the area.

Herb crusted Mahi Mahi was fantastic. Vegan options were quite tasty. Service was attentive, informative and fun. Highly recommend it. We will be back the next time we are in the area.

I ordered the special and found it not to be very appealing. We also had gazpacho and fries which were tasty although the fries were a bit too greasy. I will give the restaurant another try as the menu is more inventive than most but I did not enjoy my tuna, sweet potatoes and rice dish.

Celebrated our friend’s birthday. The staff was very kind to place our party in a private room which was great because it isolated our noisy children. The food and service were great. Will definitely recommend Central Grille!!

It was late in the evening, and spur of the moment. We expected it to be crowded being the Saturday night before Mother's Day. It was not. We had the staff's full attention and the noise level was unusually low. The food is always very good, but the night's specials which we ordered were exceptional.

A comfortable, albeit slightly noisy venue with a menu focused on flavor and freshness. Welcoming and friendly staff offering attentive service without being obtrusive. The dinners we had were delicious, starting with the fig, onion and Gorgonzola flatbread appetizer, salmon and tri-tip steak entrees and key lime pie for dessert. I will look forward to returning to the Central Grille on my next trip to the LA area.

We went as a family of four and had a great meal. We had the kale-artichoke dip that was fantastic. All of our meals were really good and we finished up with key lime pie and the warm Chocolate chip cookie with ice cream- both were very delicious. Service was quick and friendly.

Great meeting place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. OpenTable doesn't seem to be able to confirm lunch reservations so call the restaurant directly as there are often people waiting at lunch time. Recommend the zucchini bread!

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.

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.
