    Wonderful food - I had hake (which was cooked perfectly), my wife had the beef burger (delicious with the black pudding addition), and our son had steak frites (excellent). Service was impeccable.

    Fantastic lunch in Cornstore Cork. The food was outstanding - prawns pil pil about the best I’ve had outside Spain and was the highlight along with the burrata. T lhe service was immaculate (I love when I’m torn between two desserts and let the server decide and she gets it bang on - nutty apple crumble with crepe Anglais was beautiful). A couple of very good macchiatos topped off a great meal. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks Cornstore.

    As always, dining at the Cornstore restaurant in Cork was very enjoyable. The food and drinks were great, though there was one mistake with the order which was swiftly corrected by the attentive team. However, we felt a bit rushed towards the end as the waitress repeatedly inquired if we were finished eating. Despite this, we love coming here and will be back!

    I had visited Cronstore in Limerick and always liked it. This was the reason why I picked the restaurant in Cork. The experience was even better. We loved it, the ambiance was really good.The food was amazing and the waiters were so nice and helpful. Really recommend it.

    The only fault is that one of the party at the table waited an hour for their drink.. It was a dry martini. We were told it was because of a problem with the system.

    Food was incredible. The menu catered to all dietary requirements. Definitely a great experience for any foodies. The only thing to note was I did ask for a Happy Birthday mention on my Moms dessert and it was forgotten but honestly she was soo happy with the food, thats all that mattered to me in the end. Would definitely come back.

    It was my Husband's birthday as always the service, food and ambiance was very enjoyable this was my third visit :) . Everyone who served us was great especially the person who took our orders. He was very delightful it made the occasion even more special. It was my husbands first time there and he really enjoyed every bit of it. He can't stop talking about the chicken wings appetizer :). Thank you Cornstore for the great food and lovely experience, My third time and I must say every single time I have been delighted by every thing :). I highly recommend Cornstore.

    Went to the Cornstore, Cork for dinner with friends. Tuna tar tar was not cold as it should be served it was room temperature and tasted off. Main course steak Was dreadful, the potato gratin tasted if it was made 3 days prior. The almond French beans were stuck to the bottom of the dish they were cooked in cover in butter with no other flavour. The battered veg served with the steak again was cold and the batter was runny. The staff were very nice. The meal of one of the worst I’ve ever gotten out.

    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!
