Interesting salad featuring shrimp and avocado, tasty enough to order again. Swordfish special was as moist and tasty as could be, served with perfect green beans. Pavlova with lemon curd and fruit made a nice dessert. Pleasant and attentive service.
We frequent Le Central for week night "close the kitchen" Holidays. You cannot beat Jamie's cooking, he turns out classic, savory and satisfying French Bistro meals at a wonderful price. Save room for dessert!
Charming, high-quality offering of French cuisine in Bristol. If we lived in the area we would be regulars.
Second visit in 3 weeks, the food is outstanding, service is great prices are reasonable. So lucky to have this restaurant so close
Gone by on many occasions but never noticed. Used a coupon this time, but expect to return with or without one often from now on.
Great food, great drinks and great service. Everything at Le Central is outstanding. Startviff with a Smash, followed by the cold shellfish platter, then the Steak Frits, salmon, or the beef bougnigen.
Service was mediocre. Ordered Beef Bourginon, Julia Childs would have been disappointed!!!
First visit 4 people 2 had fair meals; 2 of us ordered boeuf bourguinon, which was nothing more than some medium cooked beef pieces thrown on top of vegetables and potatoes, not the classic, long-cooked dish French food lovers enjoy (menu described a72 he cooked short rib which it was not). Knowing French food and other places to get it, we will not return.
This was our first experience at Le Central. We won coupons at a School One fundraiser. I made a reservation from my cell on the road--worked very well. We were the first ones to arrive at 5pm and informed our server that we had 45 minutes before catching the ferry to Prudence Island. She was diligent in asking the chef if our choice from the menu would be ready in time. We had an excellently prepared dinner of Moroccan Chicken-presentation was lovely! The French music playing softly in the background created an ambiance that transported me back to a restaurant in Paris many years ago. Can't wait to return to try lunch/brunch and dessert-we didn't have time for dessert! Have already told two friends about our experience.
Food was good, Ambiance for a Sat. pm was slow and not very festive. Better places to go in area with more lively ambiance. Poor Savignone Blanc choices. Staff was friendly.
Superb meals enjoyed by all three people with different food selections. Well trained waitress was great compliment to the atmosphere. Thanks.
Great little spot, always a great meal, probably the best food in town and one of the best French spots in RI. Looking forward to my next meal!
Love this bistro. Food and service was high quality. Ambiance was average... very quiet and think Parisian music with some lanterns as hip factor would liven the place up. Don't think Bristol has a hip factor though with no disrespect. Maybe post labor day is mello...will return!
Just as we expected, had been there a long time ago and this food was absolutely delicious, quiet to have an enjoyable conversation with our friends. Desert was awesome too! Will definitely go back worth the drive and every penny!...
Always outstanding! Start off with Mojito and the Smash. For appetizers it was a first time Sakonnet lobster bisque and the Tuna Ceviche is always fresh and plentiful. For main entrees it was the special Swordfish (great) and the Steak Friets is always fresh and excellent. To wrap it up is bread pudding and the 3 ice creams served together. Be there. Jack the server was outstanding! Thank you!
Le Central never disappoints. Menu has something for all. The atmosphere is casual and quiet, and the service is top notch. Love the olives and bread which arrives to enjoy before the meal. Always a wonderful experience!
Outstanding! Started off with drinks, get their Mojito and the Smash. Get 2! Next was the Plateu Grande (raw bar) that was great. The entrees of Duck confit and Lamb were equally perfected. Finished with turtles, ice cream and bread pudding. Can’t wait to go back!
Fresh hot quality food
Friendly helpful staff
Nice atmosphere spent 2 1/2 hours in quiet conversations
We had eaten at Le Central for lunch several times, always enjoying the mussels served in a cast iron crock. Mussels were not on the menu the first time we came for dinner, so we started, after very pleasant drinks, with onion soup, a nice rich broth with the onions and the perfect amount of cheese - gooey enough without being messy. The green salad which we split was just enough, knowing what was coming: the grilled lobster with green beans, fingerling potatoes, and beet chunks. The lobster was halved for easy removal of the tail, and the claw meat had been removed and placed atop the tail meat. The lobster was moist, and perhaps the tastiest we had ever experienced. The highlight dessert was cherry marscapone tart reminiscent of cheesecake. One scoop of salted chocolate ice cream (we could have opted for two) was a fine finish for a delightfully memorable meal
Service throughout our meal was pleasant and perfectly timed. We look forward to a return visit soon.
For a slightly small French bistro menu, it's the best place to go in RI. It's not a high end place, it's just a very casual spot that offers great options with great service.
Our entire party was very impressed, we'll all go back, and can't imagine there's a weak link anywhere in their menu.
Our server, Susan was superb and professional, exceptionally well-mannered and also fun. We'll definitely be back!
Wonderful meal and service but a/c issues..it was extremely humid and, even though the a/c was on, doors left open..even though we asked them to close them..our friend, with asthma was having a difficult time..
Food and service was good. No air conditioning! Small but good selection of entrees and wines. Great French bread.
Excellent brunch with a couple of girlfriends. The Eggs Benedict and the Dutch Pancake were both delicious.
Good evening restaurant in Bristol RI. We had a nice family dinner on the Bastille Day.
We had a delicious meal at Le Central for my husband's birthday. We both had a delicious fresh salad with just the right ratio of dressing to greens. I had the grilled lobster and my husband had the cog au vin. He probably made the better choice, but I enjoyed mine too. We had the apple tart for dessert which I thought was great with 2 lovely handmade chocolates. The server was fantastic. The ambiance was nothing special, but the the delicious meal and service was perfection.
The food and service was wonderful!
Great experience! Serve, food and venue well awesome.
I went for lunch. Excellent food! Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Definitely would go again.
Father’s Day brunch. What we had was delicious- although we were late arrivals and several options weeknight longer available. We’ll return and try them another time.
Family visiting from Europe
Always a good meal and experience at LeCentral. Thanks!
My wife and I had a Saturday date night @ the lovely restaurant in Bristol, RI called Le Central. Oh my! what an experience. The food, the music, and the service gave us the feeling of being in a far away place, with the taste, so unique, that it was like a symphony playing to our taste buds. My wife had fish and I had the duck leg with kimchi, sweet potato, and sausage. MMM, so good! Our waitress Nickie, the staff, and Steve the owner really outdid themshelf to serve us a great meal. Thank you all. Needless to say, we will be back!

I think it's a great area and for food. I just hope in the future they can come out with a larger list menu. Great food overall
Had a lovely lunch with colleagues.
Mother’s Day was extra special because we all enjoyed an amazing meal!
Excellent oysters! A great meal overall. We highly recommend.
Great experience. Wonderful people and wonderful food.
Beautiful brunch experience
We had a lovely meal with friends. As always, the food was fantastic. The service is friendly and attentive without hovering. This is one of our "go-to" spots!
