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..

Beautiful restaurant but the service was very slow and the restaurant was practically empty for lunch so I don’t know why it took so long

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary meal at the Cornstore. Food was excellent unfortunately there is not much choice of vegetarian options. Would be great to see that catered for.

Very happy with our Saturday night meal. Starters of goats cheese and a crab brûlée followed by steak and duck confit, washed down with a bottle of Malbec. Lovely meal and great service - no complaints!

The good was some of the best and tastiest I’ve ever had honestly was so amazing. The service though is really what would bring me back nothing was too much to ask for. The servers were attentive and present without being in your face and everything was brought so quickly and efficiently. The place itself is so beautiful and will definitely be back!

The food was amazing, could not find fault with any of it. Cocktails were lovely, the wine selection was spot on. The best part of this evening was the brilliant staff who were friendly helpful and witty. I can’t wait to return here as are my friends.

This restaurant is nothing as good as it’s sister in limerick. While the place itself is beautiful and the staff very attentive, the food was only mediocre. Expected an awful
Lot more, especially as theCornstore Limerick would be our personal favourite in Limerick

My husband had booked this restaurant in advance of our stay in Cork on the basis of the reviews. He had the most amazing Scampi and Chips beautifully presented in a box with the most tasty scampi he had ever tasted (and he has eaten a lot of scampi!) I had the chicken supreme which was beautiful. The only thing that disappointed us was the response to an issue of my making. I accidentally knocked over (all over my husband!!) a FULL glass of prosecco. Although our server dealt with this very efficiently, I would have expected the restaurant to have replaced this free of charge (although my fault). Instead I was still charged for the spilt glass and not offered a free replacement. It may be that my expectations were unreasonable.
Having said this, a beautiful restaurant with excellent food and I highly recommend it for a visit.

Staff were fantastic, it was my first time in there and we unknowingly booked their last table of the night and it was if we were their first table of the night, cannot give enough praise to them, food was absolutely delicious, steak was cooked to perfection, presentation was outstanding, if you’re looking for a high end dining experience, this is the place, and not as expensive as you’d expect it to be, overall extremely satisfied with my experience there.

I had heard so many good things about the Cornstore so I guess that my expectations were above average. The crab brûlée could have done without the crumbs on top, and with less fishy crab meat. The goat cheese flat bread was very good, but the bread was not very flat nor cooked well enough. The smoked haddock was a bit over salted and the oxtail gnocchi was delicious except the oxtail croquette was burnt with burnt meat inside. The saving grace was the dessert crème brûlée which was very good, and the coffee was excellent. Perhaps the chef had a bad day?

Fantastic evening. Food was amazing. Still full the next day! Only slight spoiler was the noise level which could be reduced but it does not take away from the whole experience. Leonardo was our waiter and he was wonderful. He made sure we were happy with food etc without being obtrusive. Be sure to visit this lovely restaurant when in Cork but wear comfort waistbands as food is super and plenty of it. We will be back!

We had a really fantastic dinner all the way around. Service was great and everything we had was flavorful, well-prepared and beautifully presented. The fixed-price menu was a great value for the item selection, portion size and quality. Don’t skip desert- the sticky toffee pudding was terrific!
