Central Park Fusion Ratings and Reviews
Dinner was amazing. The Boursin Filet was possibly the best steak I have ever had. My wife had the pork chops and it was enough meat to feed the table. All of the food was just amazing. The dessert was to die for and we loved the Wine and Port selection. We will be back!
We went because of the owner's generosity in donating part of the food sales to the Single Parent Scholarship Fund on that night. Did not know what to expect of the restaurant, but we absolutely loved every aspect of this dining experience. The service was friendly but not obtrusive, the wine was great, the food even better. My husband's scallops were the best he'd ever had! The ease of making a reservation on line was a nice touch. Loved CPF & definitely would go back.
We went to dinner for our anniversary, it was our first visit to Hot Springs and this restaurant. The food was delicious! I am a huge foodie and have traveled all over the U.S. and Europe and this place is definitely up there in having some of the best tasting food I've had! The food is unique and loaded with flavor. It is pricey but well worth your money! If you like soup you must try the champagne truffle Brie soup, one word: amazing. The only somewhat downside of the restaurant is the layout, it's just one big open room. They made it look nice but it's not the coziest/intimate setting. But that's easy to overlook when the food is that good. We will definitely be visiting again!
Central Park Fusion is one of the few local restaurants I'd bring my big city visitors to in Hot Springs. It has excellent food, quality service, fine wine, and unhurried dining. I like how the menu uses as much local food as possible, yet has fresh distant food also. I know we pay a price for this, but we get what we pay for. My friend was very impressed. I've never been disappointed here.
Central Park Fusion is our favorite place for special occasions. Fresh Ahi Tuna, fresh caught and flown in special is a real treat. The Steak Cobb Salad is awesome and the price is pleasing. We had Randy, as always the wait staff was impeccable. Highly recommended.
We brought someone for their birthday that had been there several times in the past that highly recommended it. This time he said the menu had changed & did not care for it. Unfortunately neither did I or my fiance. There was not a large enough selection of American foods. Most of the menu conciest of pork & beef. We prefer natural foods, chicken & fish & nothing spicy hot. Most people in our age group can no longer handle spicy foods. The appetizers & deserts were the best part of the whole meal. My fiancé could not even eat the pasta because of the spice though we were told it was not spicy. I know it was only a party of three this time & I hope to see you offer a better selection in the future. I have traveled all over & lived in several other countries so I do enjoy going out for good foods, drinks, linen table cloths & fine dining as an event not as a way to just fill the stomach.
We always enjoy eating at Central Fusion. Matt (the chef) always comes up with very creative dishes. We especially enjoyed the tempura shrimp he mad as an appetizer. I think it should be incorporated into a full meal it was so delicious. The wait staff is always friendly, energetic and right on. Matt has a great wine selection as well.
The service was outstanding. Heather went above and beyond. The steaks were cooked to perfection, just how we ordered them. Although we were there later in the evening, we did not feel rushed at all. It was very quiet and perfect for our anniversary date night.
We've eaten here several times over the past year. We have thoroughly enjoyed every dish. The drinks are strong and delicious! However, the service this time was a little sad. Our server did not check on us even occasionally. We received more attention from the other members of staff than from our server, which has never been an issue. Maybe it was just an off night for her. We will be back, but we will be sure to request a different server.
Our server was wonderful and the food was excellent from the aptizers to the desert. There were four of us and we tried a wide range of he menu and nothing disappointed. The double cut chop was way generous much larger than any I have had before. If I could add a photo I would. Highly recommend.
My two friends & I went here off of some great reviews on Yelp. It was clean, relaxing, & moderately upscale without feeling out of your element in jeans. I like that the menu is fairly short & changes with what's available. Everything from oysters flown in to quail. Rich & tasty food with some different elements. We had fried brie for our appetizer, which was so yummy! If you order the double pork chop, you only need one. It's huge!! And the creme brulee and chocolate divinity, wow!! Wonderful friendly efficient service as well.
We went here for date night. The food was good but not great enough for the money it cost us. The waitress was good but at the end of our meal she started telling us how she had to pay her bills and I thought that was uncouth. I did notice they had a great wine selection and the restaurant was clean.
Amazing world class chef in Hot Springs, AR. Who would have guessed that this would be possible? The Majestic Hotel is being torn down across the street but don't let that scare you off. It has needed to come down for 25 years. Don't let the prices scare you either. The portions are double sized and you can take home a meal for tomorrow. Couldn't possibly finish the whole entree in a single sitting. My wife and I spent $180.00 and it was well worth it. They have an incredible wine list with spectacular food and service. Decor is really funky as is the name. The chef's mom and dad were having dinner there the night we went and it seemed that everyone knew everyone else there. Almost all were obviously locals except for my wife and I. I will definitely return when I'm in the area again and recommend this restaurant very highly! You might want to fast for the day so that you can take an appetite in with you.
The filet with boursine over polenta was incredible, and the wine pairing was perfect thanks to the best sommelier, who was 1st class knowledgeable in wine as well as Hot Springs. The building, with it's mid-Century modern flair and thoughtful decor of local art is a gem in and of itself. The best meal I've had in Hot Springs hands down.
Very nice and relatively quiet. Very knowledgeable staff for helping with the menu. The park shank was delicious but the rib eye steak was disappointing, the steak tasted more like a strip steak and the chef missed out on the Pittsburgh rare. The steak was more medium rare after the waiter recommended the rare steak. Overall I would recommend and I would go back to get the prime rib that they ran out of before we arrived.
I took my husband to CPF for his birthday! We were both extremely pleased! The food was outstanding! It was a perfect way to celebrate his special day! For appetizer we ordered the pork belly...that seriously might have been one of the best tasting and most interesting things I'd ever tasted! Our entrees were also amazing. I ordered the scallops and he had the Wagyu steak...both were cooked to perfection and complimented perfectly with the truffle polenta. To end our feast, we ordered the deep-fried cheesecake...WOW! We would go back just for that tasty treat! I highly recommend this gem of a restaurant for your special occasion!
I was very disappointed in the evening. We have always enjoyed our dining experience here but not this trip. The three of us ordered salad we then where ask for our main order. We had completed maybe half our salad when up shows our main course. Could not have been 10 minutes. Needless to say we where not ready and our guest ask them to take hers back and keep it warm. Two ordered scallops and they where very well prepared and they enjoyed them. I though had a pork chop that I am not really sure if it was not left over from the night before, very dry. As I said we have always enjoyed our experience at Fusion but I am not sure how quickly we will go back.
