Overpriced and Rude! – We spent a great deal of money for a function at Central 37. Of course, we thought the picturesque views would more than compensate for the outrageous prices. Not so much.... Not only was the food (and drink!) severly overpriced, it was cold and unappealing. Additinally, after spending too much, we experienced intolerant managers and absurdly ignorant bouncers. We will never go back..... Wish we hadn't wasn't our time and money in the first place. Hope you don't make the same mistake we did!
$5 Bread Charge – Last evening I dined at 37 Central with friends. After ordering a $80 round at the bar, we sat down for dinner. While waiting for our food to arrive, we asked for bread and were told that would be a $5 charge. Hmmm... we had just ordered two bottles of wine, apps for the table and $25-30 entrees... shouldn't bread be complimentary?!? We got the charge waived, but that was only AFTER asking to speak with management. Clearly the new owners do NOT know how to run a business. No wonder we were the only people dining in the establishment. Service aside, the food was actually quite good.
New management takes turn for the worse – When central 37 was the black rhino it was a great out of the way place. Now the new management has completely ruined it. Guys should be prepared to get direct to the "club" entrance for a 20 dollar cover. I say club in quotes because it's one room with a bad lighting system and no one dances. The only good place is the roof deck but unfortunately it is tiny and they don't serve beer from the tap up there anymore. The staff are complete jerks. My friend had his birthday there and they just invented reasons to not let two of our guys in. This place is horrendous now and should be avoided at all costs.
Central 37 - Best avoided if looking for a good time – This place was a rip off. They had a very expensive cover (20 Bucks) when I could get into much better bars in Boston for less. Not only was it expensive the atmosphere was lame inside. Back when it was the Black Rhino it used to be a cool location but whoever is running it now has ruined it. I will not ever be going back to this bar at any future date. I have never left a place angry enough to write a review, but central 37 was so bad I can not sleep tonight without writing a review hoping someone will read this and save themselves from a bad night out.
Fine Dining in the Financial District – We decided to check out Central 37 for dinner after hearing good things from a friend who works nearby. We started with drinks in the bar downstairs. The bartender suggested a delicious martini for my husband and a nice glass of wine for me. The decor was warm and cozy and the bar wasn't crowded. We went upstairs for dinner. We shared the Gulf Shrimp and Roasted Mushrooms for appetizers. Both were very good. I ordered Scallops with Cumin and my husband had the Beef Tenderloin. The scallops were delicious and the beef was cooked perfectly. We didn't have room for dessert but they had a nice selection.
Financial District newcomer features an upscale after-work scene, spread out over four floors, as well as Rene Michelena's Italian-Asian fusion cuisine. – In Short
Central 37 offers a range of dining experiences, from the first-floor candle-lit lounge to the white tablecloths on the second floor, to private dining on the third. The after-work crowd meets here for specialty cocktails such as the Brazilian Yuzu Bat (Cachaca, Cointreau, and yuzu juice) or a blackberry bellini. Diners enjoy innovative dishes such as grilled squab over scallion pancakes, cumin-dusted sea bass, and oxtail cannelloni, guided by friendly and attentive staff.
