We were hoping for a delicious French dinner... But what we received was just mediocre. The escargot was served in a bowl and was more like a soup. Very disappointing. The crepes all had very different fillings not what we expected nor what we wanted... I would not recommend this restaurant.

Can't tell you how many years we've considered Le Central a favorite. I used to love this place. But lately their standards have slipped. Is there a new chef? new management? The place even smells bad. We used to love their mussels--even that's no longer a safe bet. What happened? Did they change vendors? We were served these enormous mussels... More

Delicious food, but slow non attentive service. Funky looking outside and French Decor inside. The restaurant was packed and the tiny tables filled as soon as they emptied. My husband enjoyed the trout amandine. Full of almonds and the trout was thicker than usual. I decided to go with Rachel Ray's choice of Pork Loin (super tender) in an absolutely... More

We have eaten at Le Central many times and have ordered a Thanksgiving dinner "to go". The food has always been good. They specialize in mussels served in various sauces. Eight of had a birthday lunch there on a Friday about a week ago. Five of us had mussels and they were way below par. All the mussel eaters agreed... More

I love this place! My friend and I went here over the weekend on Friday night and it was wonderful. They seated us on the patio which was wonderful and a great place for a first date. We ordered so much food because everything in the menu looks amazing. I had escargot to start which were wonderful and so flavorful,... More

A friend of mine was going to go to Paris this year, but took a ride in an ambulance instead, wiping out the budget. So my wife, daughter and I took her to Le Central instead. We had been there for the valentines day special and totally loved it! That time we had duck breast and my wife had steak.... More

We enjoyed our meal at Le Central. It happened to be Bastille Day and they were offering a special tasting menu paired with wines. Mussels were excellent and the rest of the food was delicious. We will definitely return!

I used to enjoy coming here now I don't anymore. Their food has really gone down hill. If you get anything else but the mussels you might be disappointed. The wait staff is very good. One time during a snow storm they didn't have mussels delivered so I had something else and it wasn't good.

Wish i could say that our experience was excellent like other folks. I had been to Denver previously and enjoyed this place and talked a group of friends into going. This time though the service totally overshadowed the food, which to be fair, was good. First the good, the escargot appetizers were tasty. Though one was not quite like the... More

I've had the dinner reservations along with cooking lesson here as well as brunch on many occasions. I have to say, while I do love the food it can be hit or miss for the quality on brunch days. Some days the food is great, others it's like whoever was in the kitchen that day was just phoning it in.... More
