    It’s a small upscale restaurant.A little noisy as There is dining at the bar which is part of the general dining area. Not a large restaurant. Very nice front desk staff, server was attentive. They were busy as we were eating immediately after the women’s NCAA Final Four Championship and adjacent to the venue but handled it well. We had Nina’s meatballs, the shrimp, braised ribs, cheesecake, tiramisu and 2 drinks. All were very tasty. Moderately expensive but worth it

    We visited Centro for brunch this past Sunday. We knew that the res would be crowded and busy with the NCAA final four and the eclipse activities, but the service was really below par. We waited almost 15 minutes past our reservation time since there was no one to bus or set the tables. Long wait to order and a very, very long wait for the food to be served. If a restaurant does not have adequate staff, they should not accept reservations. The food was good,but wasn’t served hot. It seemed like it was sitting under a heating lamp for too long. It was a milestone birthday brunch and they acknowledged the birthday and also gave us a nice dessert. I probably will not return if the service is slow.

    The service matched how incredible the food was. It took me way too long to decide what to order the menu is so stacked. Our server even made sure to steer me clear of things with dairy in them. I can't wait to return!

    Our waitress was nice and the mimosas and Bloody Mary was good. 45 minutes to get our food. My “Centro omelet” was dry and no flavor. I declined the hash browns and no substitute was offered, which I understand. The english muffin, came and wasn’t toasted. The steak and eggs were just ok. Steak was flavorful, eggs were cold. Skillet eggs ordered were acceptable. I chose this place because it was a great location for the playhouse theater, which we were seeing a matinee show. Centro is a one and done for our group.

    My party of 4 made a reservation at The Centro for dinner before going to a show at Playhouse Square. The ambiance was nice and our server was lovely. We ordered wedge salads which were fine. Three of us ordered chicken picatta and the other person in our party ordered the lobster ravioli. When dinner came, we all noticed there was no sauce of any kind on the chicken or the accompanying pasta. The chicken portion was small, so tough it could barely be cut with a knife and overcooked. We spoke to our server who was very apologetic and offered to get some sauce for the chicken. The sauce we received was basically butter. The Manager was also apologetic, took the chicken picatta off our bill and asked if she could replace our dinners with something else. Because of time constraints we couldn't order other entrees. In all fairness, the lobster ravioli was good but not great. The prices at The Centro are comparable to what you would expect to pay in a top-notch restaurant. We found the food was not commensurate with the prices charged. Again, the staff couldn't have been more apologetic or nicer. Perhaps the chef was just having an off night but I couldn't reccommend the restaurant at this time.

    We have dined several times at Centro. Food is always impeccable and service normally is. Our server last night was not attentive whatsoever. We ordered a hot honey pizza and it never came. She brought over our check prior to us ordering coffee and desserts. She seemed not interested in taking care of us.

    Wow, do we miss Adega! The best part of Centro was the greeting at the door. It went downhill from there. The charcuterie board was left on the table with no explanation. The salad was lettuce soup with the ingredients relegated to the corners so they didn't drown. The chicken piccata was dry and overcooked. The ribeye was 50% fat and gristle. Our waitress checked on us regularly, but didn't care. All this for only $220. We'll never be back.

    Service would have been comical if the dinner was not so expensive.

    I loved the atmosphere honestly. They were out of the lobster ravioli so I went with the bone in filet mignon. Very good but the price was off putting when counting only 7-8 ounces of the 12 ounce was steak and not the bone. Great meatballs though! And the waitress was very nice!

    The service was great. Our waitress helped recommend a couple of dishes. However, the food was a bit bland. Our biggest complaint was getting rained on during dinner. We had a nice table right by the windows. It wasn’t raining outside but throughout the dinner we felt big rain drops coming from the ceiling. It was enough to make us move further apart and a puddle formed on the ground. They offered us free dessert but we declined. I know it wasn’t their fault the ceiling was leaking some mystery liquid. I’m not sure we would go back.

    The drinks, decor and staff were great. I brought my best friend for her bday dinner. We both enjoyed the lobster ravioli. It was very good I personally think it could have had less sauce but honestly that’s nip picking. The mussels were very good as was the bread. The price for everything was decent and the ambiance was chic and simple. Will def be back.

    We had very good service, but we were disappointed in the Chilean Sea Bass dinner that we both ordered. For the amount of money we spent, we both walked out hungry.

    The food was great, but it was NYE & we were asked by our server if we were going to be ordering dessert, even before our entrees arrived. We felt very rushed… they were cleaning & sweeping the bar before 10pm.

    I dined early, 6:00 pm, on New Year’s Eve so I thought service and dining would not be an issue; however, I was wrong. This was my second time having dinner at Centro where the service was mediocre having our servers changed mid dinner even though the first one didn’t leave. Our pre dinner cocktails were tasty, but strong. My entree, rack of lamb, was cooked correctly, medium rare, but was tough. My girlfriend’s entree, grilled salmon, was excellent. We both thought they were unstaffed for the volume of business. Being our second time coming back, our first experience was much better.
    The Centro- ClevelandResponded on January 2, 2024
    Hi Greg, thanks very much for your balanced and fair review of The Centro. I'm glad you felt the salmon dish was well done. It's something we've worked hard on and we're pleased our efforts resonated with you. I also want to thank you for your feedback and criticisms. We've taken your thoughts to heart and we're planning on making some internal changes based on your recommendations.
