    Over-rated, Over-priced & Disappointing

    The restaurant has been highly touted and charges accordingly. While the menu looks good, the food itself was largely disappointing. Similarly, the staff was nice, but clueless. If you go in winter, avoid being seated by the door. We left disappointed,

    an excellant meal

    I had an excellent meal at central. There were 4 of us and everyone agreed it was an enjoyable experience. The cheese puffs are a great whimsical start. We also had the faux gras and bacon/onion tart, both which were very good. I had the cassoulet and it

    The food was OK but not great. Given the chef's reputation and the buzz around this place, I would have considered returning and trying the place out again. However the service was completely innattenive. There are lots of great restaurants in the area

    Try it at least once

    So I can not afford Citronelle and opt to try the infamous Michel Richard's a la carte menu at Central. I heard it is quite busy at dinner so I went for a middle of the week lunch. Nothing better than treating yourself. :) I had heard rave reviews abou

    second visit disappointment

    Our first visit was very satisfying, with attentive yet not hovering service; our meals included a wonderful lobster bisque soup, a so-so onion tart, excellent hangar steak and beef ribs. Our second visit was hugely disappointing, especially so since we
