Scheduling your trip, pay attention to Central Park and remember to decide where to eat: this pizzeria is right aside the mentioned attraction. Here you will be offered tasty lobster salads, calamari and lamb shanks. Most guests recommend trying perfectly cooked bread pudding, ice cream and key lime pie.

The wine list is diverse, it can satisfy the needs of all guests. You will appreciate delicious espresso or great tea at Central Park Bistro. But the rating of this place isn't high on Zomato.

This is long overdue and has been on my list to write a review, but I LOVE this place.  We are lucky cause we can choose to walk if we wanted, but lately we have gone with people who need to drive, and parking is not hard, there are plenty of spots.  The food....where to begin? It is delicious.  I have yet to be served anything I have not enjoyed and that includes both the lunch and dinner menu.  The portion sizes are not too big, so you aren't overly stuffed, and do not have to feel guilty about indulging in the fresh bread they serve before hand or ordering appetizers, and there is always room for their delicious desserts.  The servers are attentive and knowledgable.  Recently we were there with a larger group for my parents 55th Anniversary, and they were spot on with their service.  We could not have been happier and my parents were so happy we went back two days later for a lunch they were doing for a dear friend.  This is definitely a go to spot for any occasion.  We originally tried on Christmas Ever last year, and the same wonderful service.  We left thrilled and in a festive spirit.  Thank you Central Park Bistro!!
Great little spot in San Mateo with awesome service and credible food across a pretty diverse menu. Went here because they had availability for reservations on a Friday night when a bunch of the newer / trendier places were full. There's no compromises here, though, because the place was great. Had the sea bass. So well cooked and delicious. Carrots were perfect. Roast chicken was greet as well and kids enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs and pizza. Delightful little spot we'll be coming back to often.
We walked in for a single drink and they said they "we're closed." Yet their hours say they're still open. When we questioned their hours the bartender said "yeah no, we're closed," and we had to leave. Nothing like sending your business away early. It's ok, we'll never be back.
