Le Central Reviews List

Le Central

Le Central is a neighborhood bistro located in San Francisco's bustling Financial District. A favorite of locals and visitors since it opened over three decades ago in 1974, Le Central's iconic red tabac sign has become a familiar fixture of Bush Street. Housed in a brick building, the restaurant's warm interior offers guests an authentic brasserie atmosphere. Handwritten chalk Plat du Jour menus, cozy booth seating and fresh flowers greet customers on every visit. Le Central serves traditional French cuisine such as Steak Frites, Onion Soup Gratinée, Rack of Lamb Persillé and our cassoulet which has been cooking for over 12,000 days. Le Central is owned by brothers Johnny and Paul Tanphanich who bring over four decades of French cooking to the restaurant.

"Very good traditional French cuisine in a somewhat noisy and bustling cafe near Union Square. Salmon entree was wonderful, as was dessert; found the butter lettuce salad rather bland. Our waitress was nice, but very busy!"

"We decided to go out to dinner for San Francisco Restaurant Week and wanted to try a restaurant that we hadn't tried before. We arrived a little early, and sat at the bar and enjoyed a happy hour cocktail and oysters on the half shell. We were seated a little early and chose the $40 price fixed menu. The French onion soup was delicious, the beef bourguignon superb, the creme brulee rich and creamy and the $5 glass of red a steal. The bartenders and servers were super friendly, without being intrusive and pushy, and made our dining experience that much better."

"Just a great spot for a reasonably priced french dinner just off Union Square. We have had the same server probably 4 times in the last few years and he was uninterested as always. The food makes up for it though."

"For me, to be a good French bistro one thing is paramount - consistency. This applies to the food and to the service, and Le Central does both very well. One of the things I like about this place is that really NONE of the pre-set descriptions on this web site applies to Le Central, so there is no view, it's not a vibrant bar scene and it's certainly not a hot spot. This is all good!
What it is however is a consistently good French bistro experience where the food is predictable and of excellent quality, there is no pretense here, which is getting rarer in San Francisco. Long may it continue as it is."

"This is a classic Parisian bistro from the food to the service and the ambiance. It's a little on the pricey side for bistro food (~$40-$50pp), but always satisfying. I wish the menu (or specials) would vary a little since I come here so often, but it's quite good nonetheless.
Not too loud and not too crowded. It's for an older demographic that can appreciate good food without trendy pretense. Portion sizes are just right."

"After not dining at Le Central for many, many years, and after dining in France in recent years, I was very disappointed with the 14,000+ day- old cassoulet I had for lunch recently. It was served almost room temperature and I requested reheating, which was done. The serving was very small and immediately put to rest my fears of not being able to finish the plate. The tried-and-true items such as mussels, pate, and onion soup offered nothing out of the ordinary as befits a traditional menu and I did not sample these. The tart Tatin was a complete disappointment, with nothing that tasted like apples on the top and a very soggy pastry on the bottom. Even the bread was a disappointment.
I find it sad that a restaurant of such a name and starry history in SF is clearly living on its reputation of bygone days. The pricing was above average but the food alas did not come near that level. Ironically Wilkes Bashford, a 40-year patron, died that day. I doubt his final meals there were any more noteworthy than mine."

"Our waiter came to take our order over 20 minutes after we were seated. He was working all the tables around us, and ignored our signals for his attention. After the busboy cleared our finished plates and told the waiter we were interested in coffee and the dessert menu, we waited about 15 minutes before he brought the dessert menu. Again, we waited a long time until he returned for our coffee and dessert order. Although the restaurant was busy when we arrived, by the time our orders were placed it was halfway empty. By the time we ordered dessert, less than a handful of tables were occupied."
