The food was fabulous, service friendly and attentive and the space is so pretty!
Great meal. We had been away for a few years after some disappointments, but they have changed management and updated the menu. Hope it continues
Had the chef’s choice option with wine. The meal was simply exceptional! I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation!
Food was very good especially pastas and vegetables. We also shared short ribs which were
very tasty and cooked just right. We had one dessert the chocolate carmel mouse like which
Gem of a place. The entrance is tucked back from the street and the interior seems almost like it's outside, like the inside of a fancy barn gorgeously decorated. Loved every dish we got and amazingly well priced. No misgivings!
Early dinner, great staff, food was served in a timely manner, menu has lots of options, great vibe .
It's fine, nothing more. We've had about half the dishes on the menu and none of them were in any way exceptional.
It could have been the best restaurant in some small town, but in SF you should look further.
The food was so interesting and I consider myself a foodie. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings and had fun, lovely dinner.
Great creative tasty food. Salads were very good. Beef and pork were excellent, chocolate mousse was outstanding
Very under rated
Not on the menu, but definitely ask for, the cinnamon fry bread for dessert!
Came here to celebrate my 1 year anniversary. It was all delicious. The pasta was out of this world. The service was great.
Fresh ingredients and surprising combinations; one of the best meals I had in town. Not one of the cheapest or largest portions, though.
New favorite restaurant in the Mission District! Quality of food was soooo good. Great wine selection.
Our waiter was a bit distracted initially. Didn't seem like it was typical, and ultimately we had very good food and a good overall experience.
Food is creative and delicious! Serving staff and hostess was very friendly as we had our kids with us and they checked on them which made them feel
Important too! Everything they do with Meyer Lemon (pasta to sorbet) is amazing and worth a trip back!
The food was outstanding, the service however was very poor with 3 wrong dishes presented to the table when they were never mentioned. The timing of dishes served was also not what we agreed upon to the waitress.
Went twice and both times I took the "let the kitchen decide" menu with wine pairings. Both time this was one of the best meals I've had. Everything is very tasty, very healthy, original, delicious. Wine pairing was great too.
Excellent food and great experience. Service was a bit slow as they seemed short staffed and the server was clearly overwhelmed, but overall it was an amazing experience. Highly recommended!
Came here with a group of girlfriends for a bachelorette party and loved it. The menu is small and sounds a bit unusual but everything was amazing. I definitely recommend ordering a few options for the table and sharing so you can reu. The wine/champagne options are great but just know they don’t serve liquor, so no cocktails. Our waiter, Collin, was great and even has the hostess give us suggestions for places to go afterwards to drinks/dancing. Super cool atmosphere too!
Very cute restaurant with a great ambience! Food was yummy too! Expensive, but good.
The 5-course tasting menu, which is priced at $65, is outstanding.
Wanted to try everything on the menu. The dishes not only tasted delicious, but were also exquisite on the plate!
I brought my husband to celebrate a promotion at his company. The service was great, the food was amazing, and drinks were delicious. This is one of our favorite restaurants and they did not disappoint.
Great food, easy sharing. Lovely ambience. The wine was awesome too!
The menu was limited and I was worried that I may not have selected the right restaurant to celebrate a special birthday. Listen to your waitstaff and order what they recommend....we accepted their recommendations and had an amazing meal of beautifully prepared shared plates.
Central Kitchen is always good, and our perennial favourite. We keep going back to CK, FOR THE FOOD.
Poorly executed bone in ribeye. Asked for medium well and it came out medium rare.
Amazing food every time! Love the way the menu changes according to what’s available locally & I’ve never had a dish that I did not love!
I love Central Kitchen so much I made a reservation 2 nights in a row! The fry bread is a must order every time!!!
The food is fine. Small plates though and the pasta wasn't warm enough. Servers were rushing us to finish our meal. They tried to take our plates a few times before we finish our meal. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
The food was unexpectedly great (the restaurant appears more casual than the food ends up being). Really enjoyed it. The only issue was the service, which was VERY slow. We had to ask the sommelier to take our order and there was way too much time between courses. Ended up taking 2.5 hours which is just too long for this kind of dinner. But I'd go back, assuming this was a Sunday night fluke.
This was our first visit to Central Kitchen but our friends had been there a couple of times before which proved very helpful. Given that it is “shared plates” you need to figure out how many from each category. The server stated typically 2 dishes per person however some of the dishes are so teeny that there is not much to share. Overall, every dish was delicious and my only complaint was portion size. We spent close to $100 per person and cannot say we walked away full. However, again, each dish was delicious.
Very attractive space & friendly staff. The food was good but not exceptional & the portions were small & pricey. Unfortunately there was a dead mouse in the front of the door.
Really excellent meal. Pasta was outstanding. All in all very satisfying.
Very laid back vibe and a really helpful staff
I loved this place when it opened and still love the space/ambiance. But the food has gone downhill. The fish/cod was far too salty and just underwhelming. The pork loin was under cooked and terribly fatty. The beet salad was fine but nothing exciting. Disappointing. I hope the food picks back up because I used to love this place.
Good ambiance but are bit noisy. Small portions on the food. Otherwise it was just ok food experience
Too noisy this time. Every table was yelling to be heard with what sounded like 80"s punk at full volume. Really over the top. Ruined the meal.
