All I have to say is I am NOT a food critic and dont post long story's about how awesome this is ,or that..blah blah blah, there are too many people thinking they're Billy Costa. I've been reading reviews today from all of the local places,fuse,cobblestones, centro and Ricardos ect...and cant understand why these poor food reviews are never accompanied... More

We had heard a couple of rave reviews so were looking forward to trying out this restaurant. Our waitress was excellent. The wine selection and choices were good. Everything else was a disappointment based on what we'd heard. The salad, soup and entrees were mediocre, the bread cold and undistinguished, the creme brule terrible. We won't return.

We've been having dinner before our Merrimack Repertory Theatre event for three years now. None of us had been to Centro,but had heard the name. The reviews looked great and with a birthday to celebrate, we were excited for our dinner. Centro did not disappoint! Jake, our server, rolled out the red carpet for us! His dinner special recommendations were... More

Our family was in Lowell for an outing and enjoyed our dinner here. We were seated by the host immediately but overall service could use a lot of improvement. The ambiance was modern and the glass tables were quite the addition to the atmosphere. I ordered an entree sized portion of the gnocchi appetizer with sweet corn and baby tomatoes... More

Have been to Centro several times - both for lunch and dinner. The meals have been consistently good, menu is limited but with a variety of interesting dishes. Service is prompt, helpful and non-intrusive.

4 of us were going to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium for a show. Picked this restaurant solely on the Trip Advisor rating. Excellent food and service and got us out in time for the show. A great choice.

I was in town for business and stopped in one night for a great pork chop. They have great service, food, and a really cool bar area.

I happened on this little place on our way from City Hall and I'm glad I did! My friends and I got easy parking on the opposite side of the street near a coffee shop, only a few steps from Centro's door. The decor is modern-chic in blue tones, the artwork is quite prominent and unique (from a local artist)... More

We were going to a concert in Lowell this past Friday night and having never been to Lowell, we came onto Trip Advisor to see where would be a good place to eat. Centro was #3 and the menu looked great so we gave it a try......and man, are we glad we did. Our server Jake was awesome, attentive, funny... More

Wonderful dining experience! We are planning on holding a group gathering there in October and figured we would dine there to see if Centro was what all the reviewers said it was!. For sure, the chicken special that ordered was out of this world, tender, tasty and perfectly seasoned.....a true gourmet dish! Others in our group ate salmon which was... More
