Central Park Bistro
I love this place but my last experience was with a waiter who never came back. I got the salt and pepper from the bar. He never brought the bread. I didn’t want a salad and couldn’t find him to tell him so got charged fir something I didn’t want. Usually this restaurant is perfect. This was far from it. Karen
The food was OK, nothing super good. Menu selections for lunch was alright.
Probably the best restaurant in San Mateo. I’ve had most of the entrees - there isn’t a bad choice among the bunch. Very friendly service. It is a hidden gem!
Very nice - we all had some type of seafood. Service was very nice and not intrusive. We had a great time.
This was a perfect place to pick to take my vendor!!! The aesthetics of the meals are perfection and picture worthy!!
Child’s firs birthday
We were very happy with the food and service at CPB. Our waiter was really nice and very accommodating...my aunt ordered something not on the menu and he said 'no problem, I can do that'.
We were there for an early lunch, so there were few people there and it was very quiet, nice for conversation. I had the lamb sandwich and fries...excellent! We'll be back!
The food was amazing. My starter, a baby artichoke gratin was amazing. Great wine wine list and yummy desserts.
I had the Lamb Chops and they were cooked to perfection! Calamari was delicious. My friends loved the seafood ravioli and pasta. Friendly staff. Great service.
Birthday! Wonderful experience!!
food is always excellent and very tasty, service excellent alos
The service is always impeccable and the food outstanding.
Had a great meal - salmon - delicious, ahi tuna scrumptious, sea bass delectable
Luv luv the beet salad
I booked Table saying “belated wedding”, but restaurant didn’t note or help me celebrate them. The groom asked for the bill, was given it rather than me, the person who was acknowledged as having made in the reservations.
Nice ambiance and attentive service. My husband and I enjoyed Little Gem Caesar salads followed by a delicious salmon entree (perfectly cooked), and meatballs. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Would love to come here more often but find it a bit pricey.
We loved the place, our server was wonderful and we had a terrific meal. We lingered and we’re not rushed or ignored. Can’t wait to return!
Second visit for me but many more for the Mrs. We went with another couple and had a nice, quiet dinner. We tend to eat early and we missed the big crowd this evening. Octopus appetizer is the best octopus ever! Perfectly cooked and enough to share. We had the swordfish which was lovely. All in all, a very nice evening.
Came with girlfriends earlier in the summer & food was ok but service was great. Came back for a birthday dinner as they have a nice side room that can accommodate a large group. Nice ambience, not too loud & good service. In our group 4 really liked their food and 6 of us thought it was just ok. However, nice wine offerings.
Need to get air conditioning. Most customers are complaining
Extremely slow service but great food
This is my favorite restaurant in San Mateo/Burlingame area. My siblings from San Francisdo, Walnut Creek and Lafayette ate here for the first time and can't wait to return again!
Outstanding service and delicious food!
Good. Good service. Good food.
Another lovely dinner - good food well presented. Salmon for one of us and heirloom tomatoes and gnocchi for the other. All well prepared.
How can you have a shrimp bisque soup with no shrimp in it?
Waiter rushed us with our order. Lobster ravioli had hardly any lobster. French fries was soggy.
Great food and excellent environment. Only reason it's not 5 stars is it was a very warm day and it was a bit too hot inside the restaurant
Neighborhood gem! Thoughtful staff and excellent food, space and customer service
Great restaurant, crab cakes and seafood pasta was amazing, lobster salad is a must!!! Will be back
Can’t say enough great things about this establishment. Excellent service and the food was amazing like always.
First time here. The food was great with a variety of selections on the menu. The service was terrific.
Talk about a "Neighborhood Gem"!!! Central Park checks off all the boxes!! From the excellent food with classy presentation and appropriate portions to the full wine list with the best Maker's Mark Manhattans in the city to the friendly and very professional wait staff, Central Park Bistro should be on everyone's list of restaurants to try in the city of San Mateo. You know we will return!
The food was good but for some reason our waiter was less then attentive. It was also extremely hot in the restaurant. It was a very hot day and they did not have air conditioning.
The food is always flavorful and well served. The staff is professional,welcoming and alert.
We are happy to keep coming back since it is a restaurant that has all the elements of a
top notch place.
This place is a hidden gem. The real standouts at our last meal- the crab:lobster cakes with mango and balsamic (a perfect blending of flavors) and the chocolate lava cake! Heaven.
Everything was perfect. 4 of us got 2 salads and they kindly split them for us. Everyone's order was EXCELLENT. The wine list had our favorite red
Stellar food and service very worth the prices.
I order the same thing every time I treat myself to lunch. The lobster salad and a glass of Rombauer Chardonnay. Just wish I could do it more often!
Great and very delicious food and good service. I highly recommend this place.
A little rushed, but the food was FABULOUS! We had the crab cake appetizer, shared the scallops and risotto and finished up with the sorbets and the lava cake. We live in San Jose and it made a great place to stop on the way to pick up from SFO it’s only 8 minutes to the airport. They do shut down the kitchen when it gets slow so don’t go at the end of the business day like we did.
