My NYC lawyer daughter took me to Centrico on a recent visit. She told me all about Aaron Sanchez and what a great food the restaurant must have. Being a vegetarian, I ordered the Sopes as my main dish, as there is little on the menu that a vege could eat. The description said corn tarts with black beans, salsa, queso fresco. When the dish arrived, I eagerly forked in my first taste, and had the childish reaction to spit it right back out. The corn tart had absolutely no taste at all - bland, saltless. The "black beans" were more of a bean juice glaze, the salsa was so-so, the cheese was good! I could not believe such subpar food from a celebrated chef and high-priced restaurant. Add to that the slowness of the service, and it beats me why anyone would want to eat there.

I couldn't ask for a better evening and pleasant dinning experience. I am a big fan of the chef and the restaurant has an amazing vibe. The food and service are excellent. I have dined here about three years ago and wasn'y pleased with the service but I must say thumbs up!!!

Centrico is a great place for a nice casual dinner. fish tacos were superb and the short ribs jalisco stile were juicy and flavorful. The spot light though was taken by the margaritas. So many different flavors, frozen or on the rocks, salt or no salt its so much fun to chose and they are all delicious.

Everything about the service last night was horrendous. I'd love to have this review be about the great weather and outdoor seating, or about the food, or the drinks (mediocre), but unfortunately the service was so bad, that it overshadowed every other aspect of the experience. In addition to the service being a huge disappointment, it was completely unapologetic. I was looking forward to visiting Centrico, but after last night I think it was my last time there.

We took my sister in law here to celebrate her bday. They immediately accomodated our table request and offered speedy service. We started out with the Sangria, which needs a lot of improvement, it was full of lots of ice and barely had any flavor. We moved onto the margaritas which were much better. The appetizers were good size portions, the sopes are great as well as the chips and trio of salsas. For the main entree we had the pollas a la brasas and the short ribs, these were excellent. My brother in-law had the salmon which he did not love as much. Desert was great, they sang to my sister in law and gave us bday shots. Overall it was a good experience, but pricey. Good for special ocassions. Would definitely go back.

The soul-sucking atmosphere competes with the taste-sucking food. While the fish in the taco was well prepared, the tortilla was gummy and the accompanying mango salsa was a spicy incongruous mess. The beef cheek ragu in the Enchiladas De Conejo was watery, flavorless and grisly. Garcia should poke his head in here once in awhile.
