    The fish tacos were horrible. Fish super dry and the amount of spice they put on the toppings was so hot I could barely eat one. My lips were on fire. Horrible. Service was average. Blah.

    Seems like they’re on their way out- Was told I couldn’t add a 5th person to a 4 Person reservation bc they wouldn’t have chairs- There were LOADS of empty tables They were “out of” many of the margarita options if you weren’t doing the basic bottomless marg and we had to keep asking for things like plates, a Giac came out without chips, our drinks. There was confusion bc we did a la crate instead of bottomless and all in all it was just not great.

    El Centro D.F. - GeorgetownResponded on September 16, 2022Hello Maura, thank you for sharing your feedback on your recent visit with us!

    Had a reservation for 7pm. At 4pm I get an email From open table thanking me for dining there are giving me points. That seemed odd considering it was 3 hours before my reservation. When I arrived at the restaurant at 7pm I showed the host my reservation confirmation and the email. He couldn’t find my reservation and made me feel like I was trying to scam them, since they were fully booked, despite having a reservation and showing him my open table app on my phone. After getting nowhere with the host after several minutes I walked out in disgust.

    Group of 4 went to El Centro for Bottomless Brunch. the food was delicious but the mimosas and margaritas were 20% alcohol 80 juice or mixer. Disappointed that I was 8 drinks deep and barely buzzed. I would come back for a meal but would not come back for bottomless brunch.

    Everything was great, but I’ve been before and you charge the same amount for brunch now but cut out 2-3 items that normally come with it. Lame

    El Centro D.F. - GeorgetownResponded on August 28, 2022Sometimes our menu changes are based on what's available seasonally, what's in-season locally, and feedback from our guests.

    If you're going for bottomless brunch, prepare to get lit. The food is cool, no complaints on that. It's a lot of food brought to you though so it's not hard to get full within the first 45 minutes of sitting down. But let's talk about the drinks. UNLIMITED & STRONG!! I recommend you opt of the mimosas and get you a few margaritas (no ice)...more bang for your buck. You'll get your money's worth FOR SURE and have a great time.

    The last two times I’ve made reservations, my party has been assigned what I consider the worst seating in the restaurant - 1st floor, two different size, wobbly tables put together in the middle of everyone’s path and next to the bar. I didn’t complain back in November 2021 because the restaurant looked like it was fully booked for dinner, so we proceeded with our meal with a ton of interruptions, including drafts of cold air everytime someone opened the front door. We returned for brunch on July 31st, 2022, and the time, there’s plenty of available seating everywhere, so when the really nice host took us to our assigned wobbly tables, I asked him to seat us somewhere else. He asked me to wait a couple of minutes, and soon enough, he was taking us to the second floor for some of the best seating in the house. I thanked the host for his flexibility and consideration. Bad seating can sometimes ruin even the best food/service. Kudos to the brunch crew for their good spirits, efficiency, and excellent customer service.

    very limited food options for brunch, only two types of plates. Good drink options, but only drank 1 because our server was never around to reorder. Our server was just horrible. But for the price of $39 for unlimited it's not too bad. I will return if it's a big group and against my wishes. But otherwise, I'll skip this place for brunch.

    Honestly possibly the worst service I’ve ever experienced. Waited over 30 minutes for our drinks and chips and guac. Drinks tasted like there was no tequila in them at all. When it started raining (we were seated outdoors), they screamed at us to get inside. We left our drinks and guac on the outdoor tables, and were charged for drinks to make up for the full glasses left outside. Once inside we still had to wait to order our food, but were given no menus. We were there for 2 hours for a meal and none of us could wait to leave. Food was fine but for the cost and service I would not return again.

    Sometimes paying a little more is worth it, the food is okay but the environment, tables and bathrooms is so run down

    It's been a few days since I went to El Centro, and I already don't remember it. That should tell you all you need to know. There was nothing wrong, and nothing that really stood out.

    El Centro D.F. - GeorgetownResponded on August 1, 2022Hello Ajay! Thank you for taking the time to review us. We find that our margaritas do that sometimes :) We're sad to hear that you had a less than stellar experience with us. We always strive for excellence in our restaurant so it's unusual when our food does not meet expectations. We hope you give us another opportunity to win you back.

    The quality of the brunch has decreased and their outdoor seating is sparse; out table was super tippy and no one offered to help us.

    El Centro D.F. - GeorgetownResponded on July 19, 2022Hello Anne, our servers are always striving to give an exceptional experience and we believe it was not intentional that your outdoor dining experience was uncomfortable. Please, next time just ask and we will be happy to move you to another table. We appreciate your patronage and hope you continue your brunch visits!
