A bit disappointed with our experience at Central Market. They disregarded my nut allergy and the food came out with nuts. They did try to correct the mistake, but when that happens it’s hard to trust you’re in good hands when you have a good allergy. I’d go elsewhere for better food and a better experience.

We always love to begin our dinner at Central Market with oysters and then the farinata. Terrific house made pasta and cassoulet the night we were there. And of course ending with amazing macaroons.

It is always hard to choose because the menu has so many great dishes. I tried the sole this time and it was outstanding. I am from the east coast and one thing I have missed in California is the Atlantic white fish but this sole was so perfectly cooked.

I am not sure how many times we have been to Central Market at this point but we have never had a bad meal or server before, during and hopefully the pandemic ebbs.

Central market is a consistent winner.

We appreciate Chef Tony's focus on quality food and service at a fair price.

We try to dine here at least twice a month.

Local farm to table menu. Items change frequently with a focus on seasonal offerings.

We like to order 4 to 5 dishes and share each. So many tasty items to chose from.

Recent stand outs: Banh Mi, Duck Wings, Little Gem Salad, Funghi Pizza, Kale Pesto Pasta.

Solid wine list and reasonable priced. Nice by-the-glass offerings with large 8-10oz. pours.

Service is always excellent. Luc, lead server, has done a phenomenal job with wait staff!

Great hire Chef Tony.

Look forward to dinning with you soon!

OUr greeter was wonderful, very friendly, quick, personable.
Had a great meal. It was wonderful to finally get a reservation.
The sea trout crudo with guacamole was great.
I ordered my fave Little Gems with blue cheese and house-made bacon, but it never arrived. 😢
My bride loved her house-made Italian sausage with polenta and a ‘nice sauce.’
I loved the shellfish stew. The remoulade(?) sauce really packed a punch and it surprised me but i used it all up.
The contained held the head so the shellfish was hot from beginning to end. The sliced bread was burnt at least to my taste.
We passed on desert this time.

I hadn't been there for about 10 years, same as I remembered it, great food, service and nice atmosphere. Went Friday night at 6pm, parking was not hard to find as the stores were all closing and the restaurants were just starting to get busy. Had the roasted vegetables, beet salad, and a fungi pizza, and butterscotch pot-o- cream.
Plenty of food for two.

This is our second time for dinner at Central Market and have enjoyed it quite a bit. Both the quality of food and it's preparation have been rewarding, And the chef selects our bottle of wine. It's not a neighborhood place for us and requires about a 40 minute ride. It's worth the journey and looks like a monthly trek.

The dinner entre I chose was pasta and it had 4 prawns and 4 clams that were slightly larger than raisins. My friend had a large pork chop that wasn't quite cooked. I will not recommend this restaurant or go back again.

This was my first visit to Central Market. The menu was fun and interesting, and the food was AMAZING! There were four people in our group, and everyone loved every dish. The server suggested a good wine pairing for my short ribs and the staff who kept our glasses full and our table clean was very attentive. I highly recommend Central Market and I look forward to dining there again soon.

I made reservations for my husbands birthday. I requested a regular table but we were seated in a high top table, even though there was a booth available that someone else got who came after us. The food was very good. Our waiter was aloof and not very friendly-perhaps a European thing.
