Very good food
Too bad servers are not focused on guests

Very nice evening, the food was done very well, music enchanting and my date sublime! Thank you!
Thank you for giving us four stars Vatel!
Overall one of the best two restaurants in town. Our server this time was a little too chummy - I’m not looking for a new best friend at the restaurant. Ribeye and tenderloin were both phenomenal but my potatoes were cold in several places. Server didn’t check on me often enough for me to send them back. Excellent wine, excellent music.
Great night celebrating with loved ones
Cafe Central is always above and beyond. I always look forward to dinners there
Thank you so much for your kind words!
10/28/2019 - Once we arrived at the restaurant, everything was perfect, however getting to the valet area, and getting to the front door was a little difficult for the birthday girl who uses a walker at this time because of the El Paso passion for road demolition, with roads closed off, blocked sidewalks, in the area of one way streets.
Hello! We are so sorry for the current situation with all the construction.
It was my parents 58th Anniversary. Such a pleasant experience for them. And sending the dessert with Happy Anniversary and the 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙙 was extremely nice of you. Thank you
Thank you for sharing their special day with us!
Thank you for giving us five stars!
The food was very good but service poor. They brought 3 of our 6 salad starters out 10 minutes apart and the same with the main entrees so we had half the table eating while the other half waited. They also sat us by reception so staff were constantly walking by our table and bumping our chairs. I have eaten at Café Central about 5 times and this was my first bad experience, normally very good!
We celebrated our mini-moon at Cafe Central. It was by far the best meal we've ever had. The service was wonderful and every dish was beautifully plated. We had the steak special with bone marrow and the prawns. Everything was delicious. Have the house green chile soup!
Fabulous! The sea bass was amazing.
Special place for a special occasion.
The service was superb and the food delicious. A beautiful place to have a quiet dinner with friends.
A hidden gem of a restaurant in El Paso! An absolute must for fine dining!
I really enjoyed the evening. The restaurant is gorgeous. The live music was beautiful. Although we didn't sit on the patio, it really set the tone and the mood for a romantic evening. The service was outstanding. The special was a clay and banana leaf covered branzino, while the presentation was amazing the seasoning was underwhelming. The chilean seabass was delicious, but the jasmin rice that it was served with was hard, it wasn't edible. I will definitely return to try more dishes.
I have visited Cafe Central several times. I can not recommend this place enough. Live music, above excellent service and food. The experiences are never a disappointment. Often we will see local and national celebrities without the commotion.
Definitely on my saved list.
This is my second visit and both times my order was returned to the kitchen and the other people I was dining with had finished there meal by the time I received my entree back. The first visit my “Signature Crab Cakes” we’re uneatable, and my steak cooked medium-well when ordered medium-rare. This time I ordered sea scallops and received sea bass.
Perfect date night location with live music and excellent food.
Please give our thanks to the Chef and his team, and to the staff who made our dinner last night at Cafe Central, really unique.
Managing and serving 15 people is never easy but you managed it perfectly. We had an amazing time. The private room was so comfortable, the food at Cafe Central exquisite. Our waiters and the sommelier were just wonderful. What a great place!
Disappointed in the service.
Too much time spent by the waiter pouring wine in our glasses every minute, and not enough discussion on our needs.
More importantly, the food took way too long to come out.
Atmosphere was great. The food was amazing. We started with the green Chile soup. Then we had our entrees the lamb rack was cooked to perfection and the half chicken was delicious.
It was a good experience! The food was great as well as the service!
Always the best.
Everything was perfect.
Excellent food and service at reasonable prices.
Food and service were excellent! Waiter was fantastic.
Food was perfect! We loved it everything cooked to perfection
Annual anniversary dinner. Great, great service and food!!
The food and service is always great here. There is a lot of construction occurring around the restaurant making parking difficult which makes the valet parking being offered truly valuable.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recommendation with us Robert. We hope to see you again soon!
Excelente servicio y comida , como siempre el sea bass y el ribeye son deliciosos
The restaurant was very elegant and the food was exquisite
Very nice place “fancy”
The service was excellent. There is a reason the place has been around so long. Attention to detail is the rule rather than the exception!
Ordered 2 starters … wife's starter was brought out … 10-15 minutes later they brought mine … as my wife was finishing hers … not good
As always amazing food, service and and overall experience.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us Fredrick! We hope to see you again soon.
Eating at Cafe Central was an absolute delight, from the server to the food. the wine was delicious and the food outstanding. If I have to male one complaint, it would be that we were seated at a table next to the pianist and singer. Once they started, we were unable to talk with each other in a comfortable tone. That. we did not like. We were never rushed during our meal and will recommend this place to others.
Our server took too long to serve food and would randomly check our table. I always get outstanding service but not this time. Also, I made a reservation online and upon arrival they didn’t know nothing about it, the ladies didn’t have a good sense and didn’t have a choice to sit us down. Your website apparently isn’t working to make reservations.

Thank you for joining us!
Thank you for joining us! We hope to see you soon.
The food, service, ambiance everything was excellent. The only complaint I would have is related to all the construction going on downtown around the restaurant. It would help immensely if when making a reservation whether directly by phone or through OpenTable, I did both, there was some indication about how to navigate through the construction to easily find the entrance. I live in El Paso but haven't been downtown in a long time and it took me a while to finally find the entrance. I pity someone from out of town going to Cafe for the first time.
Hello, we apologize for the confusion. The construction is hectic and we completely agree with you. We will be sharing your suggestion with management. Thank you!
