Small place inside with a few tables outside, so recommend reservations. Quaint and intimate with a more casual feel. Food was excellent! Really enjoyed the smoked salmon "taco" appetizer. Peanut butter pie for dessert was amazing, but a bit pricey at $11 per slice. It is BYOB with a small service charge for corkage. The server who seated me was... More

Sat outside on patio on a lovely evening, casual relaxed vibe, staff friendly and helpfu, bit relaxed in having to ask several times for a wine cooler and water refills, but a small concern only. Shared a smoked salmon taco, then goats chees tart and lobster risotto, all v tasty!

Went to Centre street bistro while we were in Nantucket the last week of August. We had to wait a little to be seated for our reservation but no worries we were on Vacation. One of the best meals I have had! the flavor in each dish surpassed the next. It was also bring your own which helped keep the... More

We loved The Centre Street Bistro, the most authentic of all the restaurants we tried in Nantucket. Susan, our server, was personable, kind and knowledgeable and the food was excellent. Romantic and atmospheric.

The restaurant is in an unusual location, at the end of a building with a coffee shop and gift shop at the front. Size wise it is tiny and more coffee shop in style than up market. I'd guess booking essential. The menu is short which I always take to be a good sign as the food should then be... More

The crab cake special was delicious! Served with a fresh corn rice salad & mixed greens. Small inside room with a few tables & beautiful outdoor seating. Service was prompt & friendly.

We thought we'd try the Center St. Bistro. The restaurant is small so make reservations ahead. So glad we did....food was flavorful! I got the special and glad I did. It was a beautiful night to eat outside in the patio area. We brought our own wine and the corking fee was only $2.50. This restaurant was just perfect for... More

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to try the outdoor area for a group of eight with our super well behaved dog. BYOB was a great option. Stopped at Murray's which closes at 7 on Sundays and brought wine and beer. They have a small cork fee and plenty of glasses. Note there is No separate kids menu... More
