Ordered roast beef, they asked how I wanted it and I asked for well done. Dish came out with blood oozing into mash underneath! They noticed I wasn’t eating and asked was everything ok... I explained and they were very apologetic and took dish away and cooked the meat but put it back into blood stained mash. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

From the moment we walked in the service was amazing, felt welcomed and the atmosphere was lovely. Easy to have a conversation and the noise level wasn't loud. Went for valentine's Day and the food was amazing. You get what you pay for and the price is matched by the quality of food. Would definitely come back again sometime in the near future. Highly recommend if you're going on a date or even having a business lunch.

We have dined in Cornstore Cork previously and were absolutely blown away by all elements, but particularly the food. However, this dining experience was not up to the usual standards. Our starters let down the evening tremendously. My partner ordered the prawn pil pil and I ordered the duck liver parfait. The parfait was extremely bland. The prawn pil pil was not fresh whatsoever. My partner got the scampi prawns (special) for mains and the notable difference between the two was such a let down. Obviously the scampi had been cooked fresh as it was a special on the night. Quite disappointed with that, but our mains were beautiful, so this saved the day thankfully.

Lovely Sunday lunch! We had our toddler with us and all staff were very good with her. We were served really quickly and the food was delicious. Coloring pages and crayons were given to Holly so it kept her entertained and the waitress had a lovely chat with her. Lovely relaxing lunch, which can often be stressful with a toddler. Thanks so much.

Discount of parking would entice me to go back again similar to what Soho do. Expensive evening out otherwise so probably won't return for that reason.

Normally very happy eating here and while it was extremely good of the hostess to accommodate us following a mix-up with booking, my food arrived extremely late- my friends were finishing their curries when my cauliflower steak finally arrived. The waiter had clearly mixed up the order, as when the curries arrived, a side of cauliflower was put down beside me, without a word. Myself and my friends waited, until eventually I told them to start, my main clearly wasn't on the way. I queried this with a member of staff, who said she would check, and then our own waiter rushed over to the table and asked what I had ordered again. When I reminded him, he looked at the side which was never actually placed in front of me anyway, and said, this is wrong, and took it away, saying my dish would be 3-4 minutes. It was more like 10 minutes, and it took away from the experience a lot unfortunately.

The food was lovely but by the time it arrived, I really wasn't as hungry anymore.

There was also a bit of abruptness from the lady who was taking our payment when we requested to split the bill three ways.

Would think twice before returning.

Dined at the corn store for New Year’s Eve. Atmosphere was good and seated pretty quick. I ordered the prawn pill pill for starters and as a lover of seafood I was highly disappointed. The prawns could be described as ‘mush’ in my opinion. Following this I had a very average main and desert and wasn’t asked once by the waitress if our food was ok. I was sick following my trip to the restaurant and I have no doubt it was related to the prawns.

Overall nice dinner. Waited 45+mins though for mains with no starter. Partner order the special side of prawns with her steak. €6 for 4 very small prawns. Quite expensive. 2 steaks were OK. Lack of seasoning on both. Kept dipping into small pot of pepper sauce for flavour. Sides quite small too. Overall OK meal but steaks very mediocre. No flavour or grill marks. Bland

We enjoyed our visit to the Cornstore, the food and wine was lovely. The only criticism is the seating was a bit tight. We were at the tables for 2 down the centre aisle and it was a bit uncomfortable when prople were getting up and down, just a small thing. We enjoyed our evening and staff were attentive and pleasant. Happy Christmas !

We love the cornstore. The staff and atmosphere is wonderful. Food is amazing. Think steak dishes could do with more sides than what comes with it but amazing nonetheless. Kids menu has a great selection and a breath of fresh air...not all chips and nuggets...chips and ..
5 stars. Well done

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.

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
