  • Late night dinner totally worth it
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 10/21/2014
    My husband and I live in the neighborhood and wanted to get in to Corner table for Restaurant Week. Tuesday was the only night we could do it and 9:15 was the only time available. I made the reservation but was hesitant how late it was. We were surprised to find it still totally busy. I liked the decor inside and was pleased by the intimate setting that was loud enough so we could chat comfortable without people overhearing. The waitress recommended my choices and was a great help. The food was delicious!!! We sat in silence after the first bites because we were stunned! So glad this is close to our house because we will be back! I'm so glad we made the reservation.

    We went for restaurant week, so it was busy. Overall, it was a great experience. All staff we interacted with were friendly and professional. The food was phenomenal! Started with the pork belly with chow-chow (a type of sauerkraut from the south), then for an entrée I had the short rib (excellent flavors) and my partner had the cassoulet. Finally, dessert! I had the sweet potato donuts, which were good, but my partner had the candy bar. The candy bar is made in house and just incredible! Since it was restaurant week, this was very affordable, but we would return for special occasions.

  • "Best table in the city."
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    The owner, Nick, was a congenial and welcoming host and recommended a great bottle of wine. He set the tone for a personal and very satisfying experience. Our server was so convincing when describing the evening's tasting menu, that we couldn't resist. What an outstanding and impeccable meal. The pork jowl was a favorite, as were the scallops and sweet potato doughnut. Throughout the meal, the components were thoughtful, bright and expressive. A new favorite.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    The space is relatively small, and the floors and ceiling are concrete, so it's like being in a tin can with one person yelling. It was so loud, none of us at our table of four could even hear each other. Our server provided a ton of information about the tasting menu, and then pretty much all but disappeared for the rest of the night. We were celebrating two birthdays and I can't think of a worse place to do it. The food, however, was inventive and delicious.

    This is THE place to dine in Mpls if you are a "foodie". I cannot say enough about the wonderful meal we enjoyed last night. The 5 Course Tasting dinner is the way to go. Very fun with a group. Enjoy a leisurely meal and experience new tastes together. Although an expensive evening- it was an event that will be remembered and left us all wanting to come back. Huge wine list. Great service and nice to have on-site parking.

    Small restaurant, big flavors. Went there for my birthday and everything was outstanding. Had to wait a little for our reservation, but only because other patrons were enjoying themselves so much they lingered over the end of their dinner. We had a pork belly appetizer that lived up to the award it apparently received as the best new dish, mushroom soup, and duck breast and crispy curried cauliflower entrees. We shared everything, and it was hard to decide what to leave for the lingering last taste. Great combinations of flavors everywhere. The chocolate dessert was also wonderful -- an unusual but very successful combination of textures and flavors. The service was great, including great recommendations on wine.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    Was not impressed at all. Portions were extremely small for the price. Brisket should not be fatty at $28. Could you find smaller beets for a teeny weeny beet salad? Will definitely not be returning and would not recommend. Very difficult to have a private conversation here as well. Quite noisy.

    The service was excellent, server was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction and answering any questions that we had. The food itself was great! As the menu rotates with the season, it's not worth mentioning any specific meal, but the starter and both entrees were all wonderful. We arrived at 5:15pm, a bit early for our 5:30 reservation, and were able to be seated right away. The place stayed quiet for a good while and finally the people started to pack in. Overall a good place - I'd go back!

    I really can't gush enough about Corner Table! I loved it in their old location and love even more in the new! Our seating was polite and cozy and our server (Dain?) was amazing! We shared a lovely bottle of wine, per his recommendation, and the food was delicious! We sat outside on the patio and everyone was very attentive. The timing of the courses was perfect as well. Their were great vegetarian/pescetarian options for my friend and I enjoyed a wonderful seasonal wild mushroom bisque, beautiful salad and ricotta gnocchi! She had the salmon which was delightful. I can't wait to go back!

    My wife and I really enjoyed the new location of this neighborhood gem! The service was spot on, with our food coming out unbelievably fast and still top notch quality. The Alaskan salmon entree was perfectly balanced with earthy and sweet flavors the complimented a very nicely cooked piece of fish. The heirloom tomato salad was a perfect summer appetizer and the crispy duck is everything you'd ever want in a fall menu. We enjoyed the mix of seasons available to us at this transition period in our MN summer. The lamb ragu was a bit to spicy for my taste, but the plate was still left clean... Thanks for a great night out!

Food was creative, and delicious. The duck breast was fabulous as well as the other items through dessert. The Corner Table is definitely on our rotation and we'll be sharing this place with friends.

    The décor was spare and interesting, with the silver platters on the wall. The server was friendly and very efficient, but seemed to be overworked. The food was not only incredibly delicious, but imaginative and beautiful. The wine pairings with the 5-course tasting menu were very good, especially the apricot-nosed "The Prince in His Caves." It was a fabulous meal featuring many types of fresh mushrooms. We loved the crisp cauliflower with beluga lentils (even more than the Alaskan salmon) as a main course. My only complaint is that I could barely hear our friends (and we were at a small table) due to the extreme noise level (my friends all said the same - we are middle aged, in case anyone is wondering).

Our server was very knowledgable about the food and wine menus. Food preparation and presentation was excellent. The menu had a very nice selection of options without being overwelming. I am looking forward to the time when I will return for another great experience.

    My friend and I both enjoyed our meals (salmon and gnocchi). The entrees were quite flavorful. My only complaints would be that the portion size was perhaps a bit small and that the volume in the dining area gets pretty loud. Other than that, good food, good service, nice wine selection. This was my first visit to Corner Table, I would be happy to go back in the future.

    Our dinner started at 5:30, when there were fewer people in the restaurant. But as soon as over half the tables were filled, the noise level was such that we couldn't hear each other across the table without raising our voices to an uncomfortable level. We won't be going back because of this, as our purpose for dining out is to have fewer home distractions, so that we can talk.

    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.
