    May have been the cheapest French place I've eaten at. Mussels are good. Beet salad is better. Trout was tasty. Worth the trip in.

    I'm a big fan of the Moules Normandy. It actually tastes exactly like the mussels I had while in Normandy! Kudos for bringing back wonderful memories of our time in France with culinary art.

    Try the salmon, huge portions.

    The food was great. We got to eat there with the first pastry chef that worked there. He also enjoyed the food. Except the macaroons were a tad stale.

    The pistou, ftw! Enjoy with a glass of red wine and don't forget to dip the bread in the juice left behind!

    At dinner, Le Central can be one of the city's most romantic spots, and for a relative pittance you can have feuilleté d'escargot or one of a number of mussel preparations. Read more

    Great place with good vibes, never had a dish that I was unhappy about. You need to try to Mussels!

    The food is rich and decently priced. You cam have a date on 50 to 100 bucks depending on what u get and if you need a glass of wine.

    Magnifique! Love sitting in the back. It has a porch feel.

    Stacy Riley · August 20, 2013

    Never say never if one host can't seat you at your desired time. We called back, got someone else and were in closer to our original time. Even after we added two extras to our party. Amazing staff.

    Try the potatoes - Delicious potato appetizer but I can't remember the name of it!!

    The fruttata is HUGE and only $8! A split of the meal fills two people easily.

    Michael Bruni · March 26, 2012
  • Michael M.

    Mussels (8+ options!) and bread are a meal by themselves, but also get some French onion soup as a starter.

    Michael Moredock · March 25, 2012
  • Ronnie K.

    Love the wine. The escargot rocks

    Ronnie Klocko · March 13, 2012

    Almost authentically French in every respect, but unfortunately, the staff is not rude enough.

    Impossible parking. Super affordable "real people" French food. Tons of charm & great svc. Lyonnaise inspired. Can get loud on weekends. Mmm, mussels. Not far from… (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    While everything proves quite delish - don't forget about their Lobster menu on Mondays and Tuesdays. Leave some room - it's a lot of food.

    Consistent and wonderful. Staff is authentic and accomodating. Avid meat eater...but the vegetarian special is always spot on!

  • Michael B.

    Good fare, but I swear, you slam a drink down on my table and walk away - not the way to make me happier.
