Very friendly staff and service was good. The pork was not Pork belly but fillet of pork which was disappointing.

A nice place to meet with relatively good food and atmosphere.

Service levels are adequate but my ongoing bugbear with Irish restaurants in general is that the staff are not professional enough in terms of truly making the effort to make guests feel welcome and going over and above to provide a memorable experience.
This is not confined to the Cornstore or indeed the hospitality industry as a whole, but to other service sectors too. 'Pity.

Love the food here. It’s always fantastic and the portions are big! The only criticism I have is the smaller tables are too close together and there is no privacy but that is the only thing.

Prawns to start lacked a little flavour..needef seasoning/lemon in cooking process. Everything else fab...cheesecake a bit overpriced. Tables very close together.

I love the setting and the food here is always 100%. I had the amazing gluten free chicken wings and curry, finished off with creme brûlée. The staff are so lovely and efficient.

Service was very poor. We were at our table for 10mins and despite at least 4 staff having passed the table having seen we had put the menus down we had ask someone to take our ordrer. Had to a ask for water. Ordered two desserts but only one came out again had to ask staff for the other one. No one asked us how Everything was for us despite having spent 92 Euro on a meal and wine. Overall very disappointed

My husband's Thai beef curry was very poor. There was very little beef and the beef he got was all fat. There was more veg than anything in it. Also the wine was very watery and defiantly not worth €28.

Enjoyed a really nice meal there on Sunday last, 6th October, with my mother, who is elderly and staff were very accommodating with a nice quiet table where she was comfortable. Overall excellent service from staff. Main course of pork belly was very tasty, best I have had in a while. Good value. Will be back.

I’d recommend for the food as it was lovely however I found the service to be very poor. It was rushed and lacked personality and we only received one of our starters and the other came after our main course arrived. However they did apologise and did not charge for the olives. Just disappointing really I think you could make improvements on your staff who wait on the tables.

As a group we went for the early bird menu. We really enjoyed the starters and desserts, but main courses were ok. I had the chicken curry,.which was quite bland and had very little chicken. My friends had the fish and felt the same.

From our arrival to when we departed the staff were helpful and fun. The cocktails were delicious and the food was excellent with a great selection. The wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. Their wine selection is so varied and of such quality, it’s worth calling in for that alone.

Went there to celebrate my birthday with my partner. The waiter who was serving us was a lovely guy. He couldn’t do enough for us. Very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant. Our waiter’s name was Yatharth. Definitely will remember him the next time.

I would recommend Cornstore..always good atmosphere and service.. however I was disappointed with food on this occasion..very small portion of cod for main and dessert , flourless chocolate cake, was extremely expensive for a tiny portion..I may hesitate before booking next time..

We had a lovely Sunday roast last Sunday in Cork.My son and I opted for the platter of roast meats to share with all the trimmings.The beef was beautifully cooked as was the turkey and pork.The helping were generous and the small yorkshire puddings filled with stuffing were very tasty.We also has deserts which again were very tasty.The staff were friendly and professional.I would certainly recommend Cornstone ,Cork .

We have been working in Cork since October 2018 but until now had not discovered the Cornstore.

What a find! Excellent food, superb service and a great ‘feel’ to the restaurant. The best we’ve found in Cork, to date!!

Now we’ve found it, we will be regulars for sure.

We enjoyed a night out with friends here. Service was very good as was the ambience. We found the menu somewhat limited. The noise levels were too high and interfered with enjoyment, we felt.
