As I approached Central, my first comment from the outside is that it looks like every other Bellevue bar. This is a BBB, as some of us call them; a basic Bellevue bar. It will do in a pinch, but ther...e neither anything bad to say, nor anything special to note. The service was good and the food was good, but I expect that from just about anyone in Bellevue daring to charge Bellevue prices. The bar is nice, and the food is good, the service great and the prices ridiculously high. I likely won't be back, but only because if I'm going to pay that much, I want a little more out of everything that I can get in other locations. See More

This is the best new place in Bellevue! Not only are the staff beautiful on the outside but they're incredibly beautiful people on the inside as well. All of my friends had a great time and we will be... back.
If you're looking for a quick, cheap or overly proportion bite to eat this is not your kind of restaurant. But the price and wait are worth it.
I wish Central much success and many years of bringing joy to residents and visitors.

The Brazen family has done it again! This beautiful space feels like the “formal living room” that everyone wants to hang out in. The food is beautiful and it tastes great. The amazing wine list, crea...tive cocktails as well as the gorgeous stemware they are served in makes you want to try them all. Looking forward to making many memories in this new Bellevue treasure.
