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!

We have talked about trying Le Central for two years. And of course, we accidentally visited on Bastille night.... The place was bursting and lively. We ordered the special chef menu and tried all of the choices between us. The food was above average, but not stellar. The wait staff tried hard, but too many demands left a flat experience....

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 for the... 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

Food is reasonbly priced and come in good portions. Best known for their mussels, the portion is rather generous. I had their steak salad and it was very flavorful and the steak was grilled... 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.
