We attended a wedding in the lower area of Bar Cento. It was very rustic and different. The food was amazing and the wines and beer were also quite tasty! We will definitely go back to experience it from a non-special-event perspective.

We celebrated my daughter's 18th birthday here after an hour of challenge and mystery at Perplexity - an escape the room experience - just around the corner. This was a great combination of events in walking distance of each other! Bar Cento has fabulous pizza - I mean FABULOUS! But the french fries.....oh my, they are incredible! Mallory was our...

Really interesting restaurant due to extensive beer list, coupled with very high-end food. All of the items are interesting and many options for vegetarians.

My friends and I had the Mediterranean and margarita pizza and we were SO impressed. It is a very busy place and we managed to find 3 seats at the bar and even though the place was a zoo we were served immediately and the service continued. We were on a time crunch and were worried that we wouldn't get... More

My wife and I went here for our New Years Eve dinner and were pleasantly surprised! We were a bit early on our reservation and they worked hard to get us seated asap. The waiter was professional, very knowledgeable on their offerings and was quick to offer recommendations (when asked). For an app we got their fries, which came highly... More

The food was amazing and served in a timely manner. It was very unfortunate that the service was horrible. I would not recommend this restaurant due to the poor service. I have no clue who are server was since we had someone bring our drinks and take our order then literally never come back. I waited 45 minutes to get... More

Echoing some other reviews here, place has decent food and good atmosphere, but the service was absolutely terrible on our last visit. We sat for a very long time waiting for a waitress. When they did arrive, unpleasant and dismissive. Disappointing as we'd had more positive experiences in the past. Will not return.

The general manager either doesn't believe in customer service or know how to provide a good dining experience. His lack of motivation and poor attitude a is clearly reflected in the staff. When a restaurant is out of a dish the waitress usually announces this before you order to avoid disappointment when learning "they're out of scallops, coffee, etc. Coffee,... More

The pizza there is good with interesting choices and reasonable prices. They have a large selection of beers. This restaurant is part of a local group that includes a couple of microbreweries. If you have time take the tour at Market Garden Brewery which is part of the corporate family.

While the food is secondary to the bar part of the operation, it is certainly a notch or more up from the usual bar with food. The rare and unusual beers and ciders are indeed rarely found anywhere else in the city and even anywhere else. Particularly enjoyed the Reissdorf kolsch style beer and the Ohio made, English style hard... More
