Went to this place to celebrate my neices birthday, we ordered pizza, and this 'seafood special'. the service was well below par, they were not happy we had our little girl with us, but we had flown in from san diego to celebrate my neices

Worst service, Pizza was cold and IMPOSSIBLE to CHEW! Pasta was overcooked!! The waitress made me feel as if she was doing me a favor by waiting on us, I don't know how a place like this stays in Business and gets such great reviews from the local food CRITICS, Could there be some sort of BRIBERY going on?? hmmmm makes you wonder.....People STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE, you will be glad you did. Des Moines has MUCH MUCH better places to eat at.What an awful experience going there..... NEVER, NEVER...again. I have better things to do than be insulted by some overpaid wanna-be!

If you pay with a credit card at Centro, be sure to check your monthly credit card statement against what you signed for at the restaurant. A few years ago, I used my card to pay for our group and we each left a cash tip on the table. When my statement came, another 20 percent had been added on to the amount I had signed for in the restaurant. I didn't know this was even possible. I thought once you signed the credit card receipt it was a done-deal. Apparently not. The manager said it was a mistake because the actual changes get run through at the end of the day and someone must have just entered the wrong amount -- which in this case was 20 percent additional. Yeah right. I assume he added what he thought was a missing tip believing no one would notice. I did because it was a business expense, I have not been back to this resaurant since. I could care less about how the place is rated. There are plenty of good restaurants in Des Moines.

I have been here a few times. The fist time, the experience was less than great. I went with a group and ordered the smallest pizza (I was sans dh that night). The waitress brought me the biggest pizza. When I told her I had ordered the smaller size, she looked at her ticket and said she wrote down that size. Well, my bill ended up being ~$40 (she gave me the larger pizza, but also charged me for it). But, the second time I went, my service was much better. The food was good, btw.

I like this restaurant, but I don't like the wood-smoke smell that you leave with. It is also a bit overpriced for me and a bit fancy. I just want good ol fries and a burger.

Centro is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always great, and the service is fabulous. Last time I was there, I had the Three Cheese Medallions, and they were wonderful. It is a fancy place, so menu items are expensive, but well worth it.

I am from the east coast but when visiting Iowa (I know) this is a place I make a point to visit every time. The food is amazing - and the atmosphere is very modern. The prices are well within reason - especially given the quality of the food and size of the portions! Definitely one of the best places in downtown IA.
