We eat there on a regular basis, generally on Tuesday evenings. We usually share a bowl of mussels and a bottle of wine. It's a great place to sit and talk, catch up on our week, plan for the future, just have a lovely, relaxed evening. We'll be there tonight for the cooking class (love those).

I never had Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant, but let me tell you - this is the place to go. Yes, they had the American version of Thanksgiving, but when I saw and smelled the French food, I was hooked. Carmen, our server, was polite, informed, funny and helped us to make our choices which we all shared. I had the awesome salmon which was over the top good! We were spoiled, thanked, included in conversations with others enjoying the evening and it felt like being welcomed to someone's home and being treated like family. Everything was great - the food, the wine and the dessert! I am definitely coming back. If you want great French food with wonderful service, head over to Le Central!

Reservations are a must. Full mobility is helpful. Woe betide the handicapped who need to use the loo! Service is friendly and attentive, even during busy times. Patience is needed, the chefs take their time creating each dish to perfection. Sit back and enjoy the atmosphere. Try the steak salad.

Classic French, affordable prices...other than that there's not much else good to say. The food was fair, nothing I couldn't have done better at home. The decor is dated and seriously in need of a remodel. Tables are way too close. You can't help but hear what your neighbors are saying. Service was horrible. Our waiter dropped our wine cork on the floor, picked it up and just layed it on the table. This guy has no business working in an "upscale" restaurant. He also never cleared our appetizer plates. The table was small enough but add in 3 extra plates and he himself was actually shuffling things around so our entree plates would fit. I would give them a second chance strictly because good friends have tabbed about it including how awesome their server was. We'll see...

Nice atmosphere and service was attentive and friendly, but the food wasn't that great (price point taken into account). Proteins were overcooked and there wasn't much flavor. I'll probably try it again and see if it was just an off night.

Le Central is my favorite restaurant in Denver! When I have family or friends in town we always get their weekend brunch, which is incredible! The food and service are always great. I picked up their Thanksgiving dinner to-go and drove it to my family in another state and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks Le Central!

I'm unimpressed, and I'm no Francophile. Food was mediocre at best, decor looked like it hadn't changed since '78 (not sure where they sourced the above picture, as we never saw a tablecloth, the chairs were vinyl-cushioned reminiscent of a disco, and the lighting was dark rather than "warm"), while service was no better than Applebees. Certainly not the "French" experience of other restaurants around Denver. Really disappointing after all the hype...which is just that-hype. I walked out thinking "meh", not "wow", as I get elsewhere in Denver. We must've been dining somewhere else, as nothing in the other reviews comes close to our experience. Bistro Vendome and Indulge are far better.
