Great evening!

We went to celebrate our 20th anniversary at Le Central last night and we had a great time! We had not been there for a few years. Our last experience was not so great but last night was wonderful! We sat on their patio (which is covered and enclosed) and it was great. They had a special menu... read more

Went here on 12 June with my date. Had mussels and she had salmon. Its been six years since last visit and the food is still excellent. Its healthy, clean, correct seasoning. Our waiter was excellent as well. You need reservations as this place is busy!

This was our second visit in four yrs. Enjoyed the escargo and happy hour wine prices. The bread is always fresh and awesome for dipping. Hit the Sunday afternoon menu around 3'ish so we did not have available to the full menu. Our order of mussels & frites and Nicoise salad were more than satisfying. This is a great little... More

This is my go-to for Brunch or Mussels and frites when I'm in downtown denver. The quality of the food is very good, the service is excellent, and you pay about half what you ought to for all of this opulence. Its meant to mimic a french bistro, and it does it perfectly, albeit with more frequent service.

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 !!!!!

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 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.
