The food used to be very tasty here years ago.
Two nights ago I went again, the waiters forgot one of our dishes, the vegetarian udon noddles had no dept to them, the sauce was nice tasting but lacked colour and thickness.
Over all we were a little dissatisfied.
The sprouting broccoli and hollandaise sauce, and the triple fried chips were beautiful tho

We all 4 enjoyed our meal. Found the veg portions a bit small.
When asked for more veg and spud..we noticed it was an extra portion charge?
We would go back again, but would be more aware of what to order based on potion sizes.

Couldn’t fault anything but I got the red curry and it wasn’t nice it was very bland and full of gnocchi which I hate no flavor whatsoever but other than that the prawns starter was fantastic and the New Zealand wine also fab will be back ! Just not for the curry 👍

Food was fantastic along with the service. Only thing was it was very hard for my gran to see with her eyesight as not a lot of light and there were a group of women having a meal across from us, must have been a reunion or something but they were really loud. Other than that, everything was perfect :)

The food was very hit and miss, most of our table ordered steak and it did not taste good at all. The meat was not good quality and tasted off. The staff were superb it’s just a shame the food was not good.

Having done quite a lot of research on places to eat in Cork I booked the Cornstore for a surprise 60th birthday meal for myself and my husband whilst we were staying there for St Patrick's weekend.
There is nothing that I can fault about it. I booked online through 'opentable' and the only time available was 6.30pm - a little early really. But I called them mid afternoon and asked to change it to 7.15pm and there was no problem doing this. We were greeted by a very welcoming lady who showed us to a perfectly placed table for two. She chatted with us and we told her that we were only there for the weekend and before we knew it, she was offering us information on the best bars, music and other things to do in Cork. Later in the evening she came back with a hand written list of all these places and a rating system next to them. Richard our waiter was very attentive but not suffocating. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.
It's not cheap but definitely worth that little bit extra - thoroughly recommended.

Amazing restaurant, been dying to go again for ages and finally did. We both massively enjoyed the evening, the food was great, our server was very nice and helpful and the atmosphere was very chill and enjoyable.

A couple beside us were arguing quite loudly but that wasn't even a slight dampener on the evening and completely not cornstore's fault.

I 100% recommend to anyone looking for the best restaurant in Cork to go to.

Lovely food, Tables sittings were on top of each other which meant that any private conversion was a no no,tables were cleared so fast between servings, that you felt they were in a hurry for you to go (which we did ) it was my birthday and my first time there so i didnt get time to feel the ambience, and we found the drink to be expensive, but the staff and food were fab.

Absolutely outstanding service. Staff were so kind and welcoming. I had a cocktail called ‘Teddy Bear’ while we were waiting for our table, it was delicious. We both had steaks. I got the sirloin and to be honest it was the best steak I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection. Lastly for dessert we had the cookie pan🥰 absolutely love the cookie pan it is my favorite. Thank you for the great service and food, we will be back again for sure 😊

Booked the Cornstore as part of a graduation celebration. The setting was nice and what really stood out was the staff who were warm and attentive I was really pleased with the standard of service that they provided. The food was nicely presented and the selection available was good something to suit all tastes.

Food was average, nothing special about it at all and was extremely overpriced! Service wasn't great either as soon as we finished our meal we were hunted out by our server as the table was booked again after us so we had to rush out drinks back. Definatly won't be back

The place was nice and the waiter was friendly but the meal was way over priced. Portions were moderate at best. The food was nice but you would get bigger portions and the same food for 60e in other restaurants in cork. Steak was very nice but too small and the desert was a tiny. Overal was disappointed.
