Central Park Bistro

181 E 4th Avenue

About Us

Central Park Bistro is a 100 seat American restaurant in the heart of San Mateo. The business is modeled around great fresh seasonal American food in the $15.00-$23.00 range and complemented by an award winning wine list featuring many of the best. This idea offers a sophisticated dining experience in a warm and friendly environment.

In February 2002 Central Park bistro was a new concept opened by the owners of Piacere in San Carlos and Vivace in Belmont. The look and feel of the restaurant is a contemporary departure from the other two restaurants. The first thing you see upon entering is a comfortable stainless steel bar and cherry wood tables. As you look around you see the open kitchen with the charcoal and sea green tiled wood oven and opulent botanical art by artist Dana Kowano. The newly finished party/dining room has intriguing deep grape colored wall done in crushed velvet that leads the eye to the 1000 bottle custom finished wine cellar room. The large room and the special private cellar room are available for private parties and events.

The menu is built around the idea of fresh seasonal American cuisine, featuring the best of what the different regions of the United States has to offer. From dishes of the great northwest, to the Deep South, the menu is a wonderful collection of meats, pasta, pizza and fresh seafood. Our Chef uses the highest quality of ingredients from as many local sources as possible. Our dessert are made-in-house and our wine list takes advantage of the owner's wine buying reputation that earned him a best of excellence award in 2003 from the Wine Spectator.
