Diner Reviews
  • "We came in for my wife's birthday with 4 other friends, and we were treated like royalty by the staff. Then came the good, which was outstanding. We felt as though this is the best food in Minneapolis. Thanks for a fantastic meal, and a fantastic time."

  • "Great presentation and outstanding dinner. Nice to have parking next to the restaurant or on the street vs in and out of a ramp. Good wine list. The brisket was fantastic as was the salmon. Appetizers fantastic."

  • "We went on a Friday evening to celebrate our anniversary. We had a late reservation and we were seated promptly, yet it took 20 minutes before someone came for our drink order and we were ready to walk out. Once we ordered the food was flowing on a good schedule. The starters of pork belly and heirloom salad were great. The pork entrée was descent with a really wonderful sausage. The brisket was very under seasoned and bland. Overall the portions were large and the presentation was nice. But the service was spotty and the food hit and miss for the price point."

  • "My wife and I had a surprisingly delightful dinner on Tuesday (19 August) with exceptional service. I say surprisingly for that neither I nor my wife had the Corner Table on our radar! Siri provided a very thorough and knowledgeable description of not only the food; moreover, the wine that would best accompany our menu selections. The Corner Table should be on all localvores and visiting foodies' must visit list. You won't be disappointed!"

  • "This was our first time visiting the new location, and we enjoyed brunch very much. We love the new building. We sat inside but enjoyed all of the open doors to the patio areas. Loved the signature Corner Table Benedict with pork belly and brioche. The fried rabbit and sweet potato waffle is also delicious. Only wish is that they would have espresso available."

  • "My sister and I went out to eat here for her birthday recently and the food was outstanding. The plating was great, and the flavors were amazing. Expect wonderful flavors for Apps and Entrees. The desert menu could use a bit more flair, but, everything else was superb, especially the Heirloom Tomato Salad!"

  • "We had a wonderful Saturday evening dinner experience at Corner Table. We thoroughly enjoyed Brent's recommendations, all of which lived up to his tantalizing descriptions. The entire team was very attentive to detailed dietary restrictions and attended to really every detail. It was a leisurely dinner. This is not the place to go to rush through dinner. Instead, this is an inventive, delactable dining experience to be savored. Just thinking of the pork jowls and sweet corn pannacotta makes my mouth water. High quality ingredients! A wonderful experience! Cannot recommend highly enough. We will be back!"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Corner Table and were treated like VIPs. There are two areas for outdoor dining, and we were given a table that was in a more secluded area. We were also treated to complimentary champagne in honor of our celebration. Our wait staff, Soren and Dane were attentive, knowledgeable and informative. Because we ate outdoors and were on a flight path to the airport, I did not grade the noise level. All in all, our experience was thoroughly enjoyable."

  • "Corner Table has an interesting and creative menu that is definitely fit for those interested in something other than the "standard fare". It's an attractive spot with garden dining that is very pleasant on a warm summer evening."

  • "The food, service, atmosphere is all killer. I have been to this establishment numerous times and have never had a bad experience or meal. the service is outstanding - from the waitstaff to Chef Thomas. They act like they are your friends, not part of the waitstaff. Very welcoming. As for the food- good lord. Prepared to perfection. Brisket, pork, charcutiere, pasta... there is no miss. The hominy style grits and black bean sauce accented their respected entrees with perfection. We always leave this place happy, fulfilled and with another reservation to come back."

  • "Excellent service and very good food. We had the pork jowls w/ sweet corn panna cotta as an appetizer which was delicious and the duck heart ragu pasta and the braised brisket for the main course with a side of the cheese and chive biscuits. Brisket was extremely tender and only used a knife twice, the pasta was delicious but not too rich and the biscuits were an excellent way to top it off. Highly recommend."

  • "We had an exceptional, memory making meal at Corner Table. From the starter sushi which was the most tender and well prepped we've tasted, to the light, pillow-like gnocchi which melted in the mouth, to the entree's which provided both the meat eater (brisket) and vegetarian (most perfectly prepared lentil/cauliflower/curry ever) lots of smiles. The servers knew their food and wines and recommended perfect pairings. All around this was one of the best meals we've ever had. Enjoy."

  • "My friends and I had the five course tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was delicious and the service was great. It was definitely more money than I would spend on a meal, but thought it was worth every penny, if not just for the experience it created. Sweet potato donuts are to die for!"

  • "Exceptional, contemporary cuisine. We sampled many items and everything was fantastic! Pork belly, salmon, pork jowl, duck. Love the variety and unique menu items. Also loved the new cheese biscuits. Delicious! The outdoor seating is a great addition on these beautiful summer nights. I can't say enough good things about this place."

  • "Very creative dishes for brunch but was a bit intimidating for non foodies in our group; wait staff was not all that helpful but attentive. Lovely space"

  • "We visited Corner Table for the first time and had a fabulous experience. The service and atmosphere were perfect, while small inside, it didn't feel crowded. Our waiter explained the various fishes and we tried all the ones he recommended. We were not disappointed, our starters and dinner were fantastic. Knowing that they change their menu regularly will ensure we visit again."

  • "From the moment we entered the staff were happy and welcoming The food was amazing - we had the tasting menu with wine pairing The wine was perfect and matched the food perfectly You leave feeling well fed and happy! PS the fresh sweet potato donuts were soft, silky and delicious!"

  • "Flavorful renderings of both traditional and innovative dishes using local quality ingredients. In terms of style and substance I would equate it with Perilla in Greenwich Village - the same careful approach to food, properly trained but comfortably casual waitstaff and spare but pleasing decor. Definitely worth a visit (or two, or three, or...)!"

  • "Everything from the service to the food was great! I knew I was in for a treat when they brought me a French press coffee! The sweet potato long John with maple cream was delicious! The grits were creamy & perfectly seasoned. The Johnny cake stuffed with ham & cheese was crispy on the exterior & moist on the inside. This is my new favorite brunch location! I look forward to visiting for dinner"

  • "My girlfriend and I love going to Corner Table, and our Restaurant Week experience was no exception. Our server, Siri, was knowledgable and helpful as always, and paced our meal beautifully. We loved the wine pairings that were curated for the three course prix fixe menu, and were rhapsodic over every bite and sip throughout all of our six collective courses."

  • "I cannot give it enough stars! It is a farm-to-table restaurant that pulls all of their produce and meat from local farms. The ambiance is wonderful for a romantic dinner or catching up with friends over a great meal. I have only been here for dinner, but brunch is definitely on the agenda. It is a little pricey (I go here for special occasions), but you will leave happy! I highly recommend the tasting menu, offering several courses. I have enjoyed everything that has been placed in front of me. My ultimate goal is to do the Kitchen Table option; a 12 course meal served with wine for your party. My sister and I are saving this for a very special occasion! I highly suggest you try the corner table for your next divine cuisine intervention!"

  • "Finally had a chance to go for restaurant week. Great service, awesome food. Loved the restaurant, was a nice smaller size with a cute patio. Great for a date or a small group of good friends. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • " The service was great, the staff outstanding, the ambience a mixture of cute, comfortable, and romantic, the platings attractive. The food was not great. The ricotta gnocchi was bland and flavorless; the pork belly itself was good, but the chow-chow was extremely sweet with little vinegar, leaving the dish cloying and too heavy. The pork and linguica in the feijoada were good but the dish was dominated by an unpleasant sauce. The brisket, moist and well-cooked, was drenched in onion sauce that was more like onion syrup. Chocolate pot-de-creme was also too sweet and too bland, with little chocolate flavor. The doughnuts were dry and unappetizing. Staff did notice and take care of all of this very graciously, without being asked."

  • "We stopped by during Restaurant week. What we got was kind of a mixed bag, The pork belly was cooked perfectly but a little under-seasoned, the gnochi was very good, the Salmon with Fennel was ok but the life had been cooked out of both the Fennel and the Salmon. The real hit was a vegetarian item: crispy cauliflower with Beluga lentils, it was to die for. Great texture, flavor and beautiful presentation. It should be noted that presentation was excellent on all the plates we had. The wine pairings were also truly excellent and well thought out. The deserts were great, in particular we had a sweet potato doughnut that I just loved. We will return in the winter when the comfort food (obviously the specialty) is in season."

  • "Everything was amazing, our service, the food, the wine and the new location is beautiful! We did restaurant week and will be back again for brunch and/or dinner soon! One of the best dining experiences we've had in awhile, thank you for making it a great night."
