We visited Centre Street Bistro during Figawi Weekend on Nantucket. This restaurant is tucked away in a building with a few other shops on Centre Street, which is away from the crowds that you'd typically encounter down near water.

This was just around the corner from the Hawthorn House, so we gave it a try. It is very small and has a cramped feel. We gave it a try, due to good ratings, but found it fairly mediocre. The food, while fancy sounding was pretty plain. The lone waitress, while I'm sure a nice person away from the job,... More

Centre Street Bistro was the perfect lunch spot while visiting Nantucket. The food was fresh and delicious, and the prices were very reasonable. It was a crowded weekend on Nantucket, and this bistro helped us forget all about the crowds. The salads were beautiful and served with wonderful, fresh bread. Don't forget to try one of their delicious cookies for... More

Another epic meal on Nantucket. We had the pre fixe salad, halibut and dessert. Definitely make reservations well ahead during the summer season. Even off-season we couldn't get in the first night, but well worth the wait!

The meal was very flavorful. My husband had jambalaya. I had the filet mignon. Both were terrific. The appetizer of goat cheese tart was exceptionally good. Portions were a good size. The restaurant is very small. We were a little crowded at our small table in the corner. The restaurant is byob which was fine with us but we had... More

Cute setting, however, the menu was small. We enjoyed our lunch, but we wish we would have chosen somewhere that had more to choose from.

I've been here a few times. In nice weather, they have some outdoor cafe tables. Inside, it's like a 10 foot by 20 foot space with a handful of tables. The food is very good, just be aware that it's tiny. They have BYOB, so bringing a bottle of wine, and having good food is very inexpensive. I like more... More

Gets overlooked as one of the best Nantucket restaurants. Mouthwatering food. I will order anything on their menu and be confident I will Iike it. Small inside space, limited seating. Outside seating weather permitting. I frequent for breakfast and lunch (you can also order to go and avoid the crowded dining area of its a busy day).

This is a very small Bistro on Nantucket island. it has a very limited seating. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. They do not serve liquor but you are welcome to bring Beer Or wine and they will gracefully provide the set up. outdoor seating available in season
