Excellent service in the heart of Nantucket

This is our first time to Nantucket. We were only on the island for a few hours and we wanted a quick but delightful lunch before we started exploring the island. We walked from the pier into town and we were enjoying the cobble stone streets and the excellent weather when I realized that we had... read more

We planned a birthday meal here based on TA reviews and we were rewarded with an excellent dinner bursting with flavor. The manchego cheese appetizer was as good as it is in Iberia, rich and delicious! The risotto special topped with locally caught striper was outstanding, and there were nothing but raves around us for every dish. The desserts were... More

This is one of the best kept secrets on Nantucket. One of the few BYOB restaurants on the Island plus a reasonable pp corkage fee. Tim, the owner chef, does an amazing job with the food and the Risotto Special and the Salmon are our two favorite dishes. Don't pass up the starters which are all amazing! If you dine... More

Had dinner on the patio which was quaint and nice. We had a couple special requests and they abliged beyond expectations. Pricing is very reasonable for Nantucket standards, and the BYOB scenario was uncomplicated, and actually saved on the overall bill. Food was tremendous for all four entrees, the beef tenderloin was one of the best I've had, and the... More

The bistro was time away from the crowded streets. The house salad was good and the coffee fresh. It is small so tables are very close. The server was very friendly though overly busy as she was the only server. The food served close to my table looked very inviting and folks seemed to be enjoying their food.

We had breakfast and enjoyed it greatly. The blueberry pancakes were good (would have been awesome with VT maple syrup), the breakfast burrito was huge and tasted great, and the Nantucket breakfast was very tasty. The bacon was the best smoked bacon I've ever eaten! Service was fast and friendly. It was a quaint little spot and we enjoyed it... More

Excellent sesame crusted shrimp, goat cheese salad with fresh raspberries & abundant portion of goat cheese, and terrific beet salad. We ordered take out after a long day of travel & were not disappointed.

20 seat kitchen bistro tucked in a building complex. Very comfortable setting. Byob @ $2.50 pp corkage. Mixed green salad with goat cheese was outstanding, bread basket outstanding, wife's salmon was a beautiful cut of fish with lots of flavor in the mixed side. I tried a new item on the menu, boneless pork cutlet stuffed with pulled pork. My... More

Dined last night at Centre Street Bistro. It's a very small, rustic restaurant with delicious food. It's different from the typical high end Nantucket restaurants which was nice for a change. I recommend dining here if you like casual restaurant with good food.

Outstanding dinner in a quaint location. Reservations are a must as we watched at least twenty people get turned away. The fried chicken with fresh buffalo mozzarella and hot house tomatoes was "the best entree" had that week after dining at many great restaurants. The hostess/waitress was kind, friendly and made great recommendations.
