C'est bon!

I came here for a celebration lunch with 3 of the children who come to my little French Preschool, La Petite Ecole. We wanted a genuine French restaurant experience, and we got it!

We go to lunch here about 2 to 3 times a month. They bake their own french bread every evening. They always have huge mussels and the ham & cheese sandwich is a favorite as well. We've been there for dinners before plays downtown. It's always busy, so don't complain! Be happy that another local business is doing great and... More

We always love our visits to Le Central. There's almost nothing wrong with this place. Our service was phenomenal for Sunday brunch, with great food, wonderful ambience. It's one of our favorite places to go with friends and family in Denver. The prices are very reasonable, and very good for the exceptional quality of the food.

Dined here on a recommendation from a local person. Food is very good to excellent. Muscles are superb, the Lobster Special is excellent. Deserts are first class. The service is excellent but the food quality doesn't seem to jive with the stark atmosphere. The tables use a worn oil cloth tablecloth (that was sticky) and one of the plates was... More

Everything about this restaurant was wonderful. Loved sitting in the garden room with little to no airconditioning. From the exterior to the interior, it is a very charming place. Server was knowledgeable, efficient, professional, yet friendly. The menu offers dishes with a twist of difference. The wine was exquisite and VERY affordable. Markup was not that of the normal restaurant.... More

We had the mussels, goat cheese appetizer and salads. All were disappointing, the mussels were very "fishy", the fries were cold as if they old, the toasted bread served with our goat cheese dip was almost burnt and chalky, the dip itself was boring, our salads were very over dressed, the poached pears were very yummy..as well as the figs.The...

Wow - all I can say is Moules-Frites-Rose! Le Central was packed and lively! They had several specials but our table all went for the all you could eat mussels, fries and bottomless glasses of Rosé. We had a wonderful experience celebrating Bastille Day!
