User Reviews Central Kitchen Posted by CMW on 2007-11-14 Paella not so great Ordered the Paella. The rabbit was nothing but bones and the rice was mushy on the outside and undercooked on the inside. Also, I kept finding rabbit bones in the rice so I couldn't take a bite without worrying about cracking a tooth.

We are visiting our kids in Cambridge. They recommended Central Kitchen, and we had met upstairs in the bar for drinks during a previous visit. Our table wasn't available when we arrived, but the situation was handled very well. After snacks and drinks at the bar, all outstanding, we enjoyed a delicious meal. Highly recommended. We will gladly come back.

Vadim B Boston, Massachusetts Level Contributor 20 reviews 10 restaurant reviews 24 helpful votes “Pleasant surprise” Reviewed December 26, 2016 Cambridge has too much experimentation and the places with really actual good food are too scarce for my taste. Central Kitchen may not be the most fancy but it has flawless execution and great service. It is also reasonably priced. Thumbs up and keep doing what you do guys. Helpful? Thank Vadim B Report

I used to go to Central Kitchen with friends on special occasions back in my college days (some 15 years ago). The food was always superb, especially for the price. I hadn't been for a long time, and chose it with some trepidation as a spot to reunite with an old friend visiting from out of town. You never know if the quality and ambiance of a restaurant will hold up over the years (and through the haze of nostalgia). But Central Kitchen did not disappoint. Service was excellent and friendly, food and drinks were just right, noise level was perfect for catching up 1-to-1 without either being drowned out or feeling the need to whisper to avoid disturbing other patrons. Five stars 15 years ago, five stars today.

Had an early dinner at Central Kitchen – we were the first party seated. Waiter gave a slightly confused description of the differences between the oyster choices, but cogent enough to guide my choice. He was charming without being unctuous. Oysters were excellent, the bread outstanding, and my request for cocktail sauce and butter rather than the vinegary oyster dressing and bean dip handled quickly and without judgement, I had the confit of duck as a small plate – it was fabulous. The apple-potato pureé was really great and the duck itself perfectly prepared. My wife's steak frite was also fabulous – perfectly cooked steak, flavorful and tender, and copious frites. We come from Portland, Maine, and had no expectations of a meal as good as the one we happened into at Central Kitchen. It was as good as, and perhaps even better than we get in our hometown. Bravo.
