Great value for the money if you want French food!

Pleasant decor, eat out on the windowed patio with the plants. Staff is busy sometimes, but knowledgeable and pleasant. Can get very busy in the evenings, lunch or early diner is best. Really good French food for an excellent price selection.

We went for lunch and all ordered something different. First we split the moules (mussels) as an appetizer. Absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is authentic, the prices were reasonable, the service was wonderful and the food was delicious. I would recommend you try it.....you'll like it. What a great French restaurant !!!!!

We were not promming it, but the place was packed. We had a large table to celebrate a graduation. The service was amazing! Casual, efficient and friendly. It can be disruptive having a large party but they handled it well. The food all around was very tasty.

What a delight. A real live chef in the kitchen who exercises great skill in presenting an ever-changing selection. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and fully prepared to offer assistance during selection. Superb flavors that can only be achieved with fresh ingredients. Exhaustive wine list.

I read a review on TripAdvisor of this good French Restaurant. I was looking to have a nice dinner in a French Restaurant with my family. Upon arriving to this place, it made me do a "hmmmmm?" Outside, the look is...kind of ghetto??!! But inside, it looked normal and cozy. Our beautiful and very friendly server explained the prix fix,... More

Authentic Provencal dishes, quality food, good service, and reasonable prices all make Le Central a great value. Located in a modest business district and a funky building, doesn't look like much from outside. Inside ambiance is functional, not elegant, pleasant enough. But the food! Bouillabaisse among best we've had outside France, the free seconds on frites a luxury, and the... More

We recently enjoyed the fixed price dinner with four courses! Appropriate wines were served with each course and the choice was excellent! I have NEVER had such good short ribs. They were not greasy, easily cut and the sauce and accoutrements were delicious. The Bavarian dessert was to die for.... All told, an excellent menu for a very reasonable price!!

We came here when we landed and got the weekend brunch. Absolutely delicious. I ordered the waffles and they were just beyond amazing. My husband got the mussels and he loved them. Great service, great value, generous portions. I came in "not very hungry" and ate everything on my plate. Will definitely be coming back!!

We have not eaten at a communal table before and enjoyed it very much. You get to make new friends and the paella was served freshly prepared and the service was excellent......as always

A group of us ate lunch here on a Friday in March. The food here is very authentic French-Belgian style, and is remarkably good. Also remarkable is how low their prices are for what you get. Excellent service. The interior is like an old French country house. The beer list is extensive, including some excellent Belgians. Highly recommend Le Central... More
