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.

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.

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.

With our Open Table reservation, we still had to wait 28 mins for our table. Once we ordered, the food came out at odd intervals some 20 mins later, others a few mins with no actual reasonable order. The carrots came out last and were bland. The beef tartare wasn’t tasty. After the meal, my date and I were both sick thoroughout the night. I’m unclear why Central Kitchen has good reviews. Avoid this restaurant!
