We found many of the restaurants on Nantucket to all be the same. This bistro did not follow the same conservative playbook. The dishes were creative and tasty. One of our party thought the dishes had a little too much sauce but we all agreed this is the place to have a great meal in the center of town.

Great food - outdoor dining or small intimate inside restaurant. Food is so reasonable and really fresh. There is a reasonably priced steak option, great fish and fabulous desserts. BYOB !!!! Love that. They accept credit cards too. I went 2x this summer and is was great both times.

Food was so-so. Ordered what was described as "Shrimp Pad Thai" - noodles and veggies were delicious, but the shrimp was coated and fried in something, NOT the way shrimp is normally prepared for Pad Thai (usually it is quickly stirred in the pan to cook through). Since I don't do well with fried food, I was greatly disappointed. Also,... More

My wife and I enjoyed our lunch at Centre Street Bistro. We sat inside, in the cozy seating area. The soup special, red curry and coconut soup, was excellent. The fluke wrap was also quite good, served over a green salad topped with corn and rice. For dessert, yummy and large cookies. The price was reasonable and service was good.

We were looking for a place to have a quick but healthy lunch, checked the menu at Centre Street Bistro and it was the right choice. I had the Black Bean Burrito and my wife had the Bistro Salad. Both were wonderful. Next time we are in Nantucket we'll try CSB for dinner.

This restaurant is a gem. I had a lobster risotto with a baked cod on top. It was not only completely delicious the serving was large. There are 2 ladies in the front of the house. One from Russia and one from New Zealand. Sorry ladies am bad with names. They made the experience extra special. They have both been... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by The Sherburne Inn concierge. It was the best meal we had on the island. And I especially loved that it was not a 'scene'. Just a cozy, quiet dinner inside, with lovely service. CSB is a little tricky to find, but keep looking it's worth the search. Inside and outside seating. BYOB, even... More

Had an exceptional brunch on Sunday. Omelet and wrap were both delicious. Service was excellent. Made for a relaxing and enjoyable start to Sunday on the island.

We came here for dinner on a Saturday night after biking all day on the island. We opted to stay inside as it was hot out and we had been out in the sun all day so welcomed the cooler AC found inside. The restaurant is small and all tables were filled. The service was prompt and friendly and our... More

Inventive breakfast and very well-prepared. The staff is pleasant and accommodating. We've also been for lunch on previous occasions and really enjoyed it as well.
