A word from Brooklyn Cornerstone
Cornerstone is restaurant and lounge in the heart of Fort Greene Brooklyn. The dishes on the menu are made from locally sourced produce, humanely raised meats and sustainable seafood. The outdoor seating on two floors is the best in the city. The full bar features our own twist on classic cocktails as well as beer on draft and in bottles, and wine by the glass.

Brooklyn Cornerstone reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Projector = fail
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/17/2013
    Showed up for our reservation expecting a nice date spot with good new American cuisine. Couldn't even say how the food was (gave a 'fair' to be neutral), because for no obvious reason they had a giant projector running on one wall, drenching the entire dining room in bright white/blue light, playing a basketball game with the volume cranked up to max. For the first fifteen minutes it wasn't even the game; it was the pre-show. Ordered a drink and left. Servers seemed wholly unaware of our presence despite being one of two tables in the whole place (rest of crowd, about five people, were at the bar). No idea who they thought would want to pair their intimate, low-lit meal with a screaming Knicks game. Drinks, admittedly, were delicious.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    The food was fine, the service was terrible. It was Valentine's Day and our waitress only visited our table once, to take our order. She wasn't seen again until we flagged her down for the bill. My boyfriend ordered a beer and got half of one, when he went to the bar to have them top it off he was told "that's how stouts are poured"...we were bartenders before, that is not how a stout is poured. If she had come to our table we could have told her we never received half of the items we ordered. The food was good though and the ambiance was very nice.

    My boyfriend & I ate dinner here on December 30th, 2012 & we absolutely loved it. If you love soul food & soul music you won't be disapointed. The music was so good my boyfriend decided we needed to dance! The food was yummy, I loved the blackened salmon & quinoa dish & my boyfriend loved his steak.

    This place is better suited for brunch but not so much for dinner food selection is small. One thing I did not like about that. Night the hostess was sort of rude when asking us to hurry up and finish eat within the hour to accommodate multiple parties. I did not appreciate being given a time frame if I'm paying my money other than that the staff is generally nice

    Great spot in Brooklyn. I always wanted to go to this place and when I finally did I was very pleased. The food takes a bit long but it was good! I've gone fro brunch several times since this visit and even went for my birthday which is when I discovered they have outdoor dining upstairs. I feel like a true Brooklynite when I eat here. Fav spot in deed!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/20/2012
    Had a great dinner there last week. Unfortunately there was a party going on upstairs with the music and DJ killing the romantic feel of the restaurant. We ended up moving outside where things were better. Food was excellent. Service was pretty slow both for the food and check. If you have a good server and don't go during a rented party upstairs, I'm sure you'll be blown away.

  • UNpleasantly Surprised...

    Okay, we were seated quickly. It took 15 minutes for a server to come to our table and ask us what we wanted to drink. Now, the calamari came to our table in like 60 seconds, but it took an HOUR for our entrees to come! Come on now, REALLY?! Also, the server didn't seem to be too concerned with the service provided to us. That DEFINITELY affected his tip, for the record. The guy that puts the water and glasses on the table was more attentive! My food was mediocre at best, but my girlfriend wasn't impressed with her food at all. And the macaroni and cheese seemed like it was a box of Kraft's Deluxe! Overall, I was disappointed with my experience at the Cornerstone. It didn't meet my expectations, and I actually had high hopes for this place.
