    We didn’t have a very good experience at the cornstore cork last night. I understand it was a busy night but we were not impressed by the service we got. We sat down at 8pm and by 8:30pm after sitting there for 30mins we were still trying to get someone’s attention to put in an order. We also were given a Sunday lunch menu rather than the regular menu so we couldn’t even look at the menu to decide what we wanted. It was only at 8:30 we managed to get the specials menu and set menu to take a look at. Eventually we got someone’s attention (wasn’t our own waiter) and we ordered the drinks then took about 15 mins to come! They also brought the wrong drinks to our table twice. We got 3 courses, when our mains came out I was still eating my chicken wings I had got as my starter. So he had to clear our starter plates before I was finished. I ordered a sirloin steak, it was absolutely delicious but unfortunately the pepper sauce and the mash were quite cold which then took from the meal. It was such a disappointment as usually I love the cornstore and the food is always so nice. We were celebrating a special occasion and it really took from it!

    Starters was lovely, the mains was absolutely shocking. The steak has no nice cut and so fatty, the chips were soggy and the pepper cream sauce has zero flavour. My partner steak was the same. No flavour and very bad value for money. I love going out and I hate emailing this but it was probably the worst I've ever eaten out and it was my birthday which was extra disappointing

    This was our first visit to the Cork Cornstore (we had previously been to the Limerick restaurant a few years ago) and we were very impressed. The food was phenomenal, I had the beef cheek bourguignon which was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing, my partner had the cauliflower steak which was equally as exceptional. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and made our visit all the better. We will definitely be visiting again!

    3 of us got rib eye steak , my husband and daughters was fine mine was quite fatty. Also think the steak should come with a side of fries or mash. I asked for a little birthday desert to be brought out for my daughter when I made the booking as she turned 12, they never brought this out. I stated I would pay for it. That was disappointing.

    The set lunch menu was good value for money and had a good selection to accommodate all tastes. The portions were of good size especially the Duck and Venison burger. The Braised beef cheek and the ribs were very tender and melt in the mouth. The prawns were juicy and full of flavour. The service was efficient but also relaxed so we could enjoy our lunch. We will be back again. Thank you.

    Very much enjoyed our meal. Our server was excellent. Knew her stuff and gave options and also followed up on any questioned we had. Food was very good. Very happy with experience. Only downside is the “shake” on the chips. Missed seeing this information on menu and didn’t really like the taste. Tasted sweet. My son also didn’t like and ate none of the chips.

    Couldn't fault any aspect of this visit. Service was pleasant, attentive and polite. Food was without fault and it was one of the best fillet steaks I've had. Portions were ideal. The cost was not over the top either. Not the cheapest place, but you'll know that if you're looking at it.
