Success! Thanks for posting your review of Central Park Bistro. You’ve done the world some good today.

Bad food ! Watch your credit card charge!!

I brought in a group of 12 for a going away dinner. Food wasn't special and the service was okay. Most of the team didn't finish their meals due to the ill taste on the seafood dish.The next day when I checked on my credit card record found that the amount of the credit card charge was altered. They added $178.11 to the bill after I signed off the added gratuity charge. Called in to the resturant to verify and the p... view more

I want to like Central Park Bistro so badly. It's in a great location for pre- or post- movie going and the ambience is nice. But after 3 dinners and 2 lunches, I have to finally admit that the food really isn't very good. The fish is bland, the fried calamari was soggy, the pizza was ordinary, etc. It's really too bad.

Uninspiring, overpriced

Central Park is not's just not great, and it's overpriced. I've been there twice, I believe, and both times I seem to remember thinking some minor thing was wrong with the food. I don't think I'd go back.

Just OK.

We were seated near the front window. Soon after they seated 2 larger parties on either side of us. This made our table escape areas small. For instance, when the waiter was serving the adjacent table, his rear end came much too close for comfort! Leaving the table to use the restroom was tricky! The salads and entrees were ok. The main problem was the dessert. It was listed on the dessert menu (along with two t... view more

Great Food and Service!

Glad we didn't read some previous reviews, we might not have stepped in! Maybe it was because it was a Tuesday night... Servers were on top of everything from the water to the plate clearing. We had the beet salad with nut-crusted goat cheese (yummy!) and the beets were not too sweet or sour and the dressing for the mache was perfectly balanced. The mahi-mahi was overdosed in garlic, (the only flaw) but the filet... view more

Lackluster, average food, spotty service

The hostess didn't even smile. the waiter was pleasant but not efficient (forgot to order the dessert from kitchen), wine list good. Food average. Will not return. Come on, get the energy level, service and food together!!

Central Park Bistro - Wonderful!

I just planned a private party for 55 and was nothing but PLEASED with the entire experience. Event Planner Robert was very accommodating! We had the side room entirely to ourselves and could make as much noise as we wanted with the doors closed. The service was outstanding. The food was wonderful (AMAZING desserts!) And the best part - we were there from 6-11:30pm and were not ONCE asked to leave as the night g... view more

good food

We just had dinner there last night. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, baby back ribs, and the gnocchi. All of the food was good including the herb butter for the bread. A little pricey and the portions were not huge but average. We had no problems with the service. the restaurant looked like a good place for private parties as they had a separate room w/curtains for privacy.
