Central Park is a fine-dining experience in downtown San Mateo. Its cuisine would be described as fresh seasonal American, and its wine list is fabulous, featuring many of the best wines from around the world. The staff comprises very courteous professionals who can help with wine pairing suggestions and understand the hospitality business. For large parties or corporate events, book the stunning 60-seat banquet room that has a view of its 1,000-bottle custom wine-cellar room. Its website features excellent pictures of the restaurant's food, stainless-steel bar and cherry wood accents.
