Great place to eat.This was a terrific eating experience. The service was excellent. Every time we were ready for our next course it was there and not too soon either. It was as if it was magic that the food came when we were ready for it. My friend and I shared everything from appetizer to dessert and the staff split every course for us. We had a shrimp appetizer that was yummy and way too much for one unless you had it for a main dish. We also shared the caesar salad that was excellent with a wonderful taste of anchovies. For our entree we ordered the ale-battered flounder and it was delicious. We topped off the meal with a mouth watering chocolate cake that was to die for, It came with a yummy vanilla ice cream and alas, we couldn't finish it.
Bravo!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLaid back but not lackingOur server was really pleasant, helpful with making beer and wine selections. Described and announced favorites on the menu without having to be asked. Even though the restaurant was busy, all food arrived on time and hot, and was great. Will be back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time diningThis was my second time dining at Corner Tavern and the food and service is consistently good. Will definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to celebrate friend'sWent to celebrate friend's birthday, was pleasantly surprised to find birthday greeting on menu. Birthday celebrant loved it! Had a decent selection of draft beers and food was good (appetizers and main dishes). Dessert menu could be improved on though...didn't really like the strawberry genoise cake with basil and the chocolate truffle cake was a bit too dry.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch Spot, ConvenientThis restaurant is a great addition to the Walnut Creek food scene. Conveniently located to Broadway Plaza shopping, the food is excellent.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall great, service slowWe have a nice lunch here, but the service, while friendly and helpful, was slow. It took a while before our orders were taken, another longish wait for our food and again to get the check. I don't mind leisurely, but this was longer than that. The waiter was very good at menu suggestions, unobtrusive in refilling water and had a pleasant table-side manner. Our food, the fish and chips and a hamburger, were very delicious, as were the donut puffs and the chocolate truffle cake. I will still come back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCorner's Tavern revisitedWill be returning on the 26th of May for lunch. Bringing friends. My wife and her friend from SF, a sophisticated diner, had lunch at the Tavern this past Saturday. Her friend had the gnocchi and my wife the ale battered flounder, both of which were described as delicious. Looking forward to lunch there again, which for me is the true test of the quality of an eatery-the willingness of customers to return to the place of business.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDowntown Tavern, Around the CornerA upscaled cafe with a lively bar. The food menu was limited but there are sufficient selections to fill the taste of most customers. I had the pork chop and it was covered with a very enjoyable sauce. It certainly was a double cut and I had to take some of it home. Certainly, wll be willing to come back again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved our waiter Brian...WillWe loved our waiter Brian...Will ask for him when we visit again4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated a birthday dinnerCelebrated a birthday dinner at Corners Tavern. It was my first time dining at this place. The good, ambiance & service was excellent! I love the variety of wine & beer selection. Great find in Walnut Creek. I found out out this restaurant thru good rating in YELP. I'll definitely come back again and try their brunch menu.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWaiter could have been moreWaiter could have been more attentive. He did not check on us often enough. Did not bring bread at all. Did not ask us if we wanted coffee at the end of the meal. Felt liek a different waiter would have made the expereince even better. Food was great.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHad my birthday dinner there;Had my birthday dinner there; we were welcomed with special menus printed with my name and a birthday greeting. Not an extensive menu, but we each had something different, and all three selections were good. Service was friendly and attentive. The chocolate cake/creme fraiche ice cream/caramel/spiced graham cracker dessert was outstanding.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and Service were outstanding.Food and Service were outstanding. Waiter made some great recommendations that did not fail. I had the pork chop and my wife have the flounder. Pork chop could compete with the best that I have ever had and the flounder was flaky and delicious.
Definitely want to go back to try the burger!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAgain very suitable for businessAgain very suitable for business lunch I had there, Service was exceptionally good. Most notably, when our desert arrived and after I had started consuming mine, I expressed a preference for the more attractive desert that my companion/guest had ordered, and the waiter without hesitation replaced what I had with a duplicate of my my companion/guest was having.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to Corner's Tavern within a month. Both were lunches. I think the most outstanding dish is the brussel sprout starter. I had it both times. The burger is fabulous but one should request the homemade potatoe chips instead of the fries. The fries are fine but the chips are great!!! The second time I had the gnocchi which was prepared exactly right - melt in your mouth not chewy. The service is really outstanding as well. Both times our waitresses were helpful and informative.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. GreatThe food was great. Great wine and beers to chose from. Very loud. Excellent service from bar tender (Ryan) and servers.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI put in my OpenTable reservationI put in my OpenTable reservation that it was my wife's birthday. When we arrived we were greeted with customized menus saying "Happy Birthday Claire". Nice touch.
We struck up a conversation with a nearby table of visting ladies and had a great time. By the way, the food and drinks were great too.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThird visit here; this timeThird visit here; this time for a work lunch with 7 others. Excellent, diverse menu. Very fresh ingredients. Efficient, professional, friendly service. If you like this sort of thing, the burger is a must.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCorners Tavern is outstanding!Corners Tavern is outstanding! The food, service, and atmosphere make this a great place for any occasion. Located in the heart of Downtown Walnut Creek makes it a great destination.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the famous CornerI ordered the famous Corner Burger and was disappointed to find that my medium rare request turned out to be more medium. The quality of the meat was excellent however, and so the overcooking of the burger was not such a big deal. The pickled red onions were quite tough and I had to take them off the burger as I could not only cut through them, but they were difficult to eat.
The service was quite good and the management staff was available to talk about the meal service. I would definitely return to order some other items.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service, noisyBeen there twice now and both times were amazing. Service was very friendly and staff aimed to please. Food was excellent. They have a brussel sprout starter that is amazing and hate those thing. A little noisy so may have to talk a little louder.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I very muchMy friend and I very much enjoyed our lunch. We each ordered a different sandwich and had one half of each. Both were delicious!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat omelette and hamburger.Great omelette and hamburger. Food was slow to come after we ordered and we had to request bread. Helpful and pleasant waiter.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNOT REALLY A TAVERN (but good beer)My husband and I ate here for the 4th time since opening. Each time great food, nice atmosphere and outstanding service. The name and the large (and nice) bar make you think burgers and fish and chips....and they do have that...but the food is much more upscale. A rival to many of the fine restaurants that we visit in the city. Seared salmon with citrus salad...Crusted sole with squash gnocchi. The outdoor patio is very nice and the garage doors that open in the front make the entire restaurant feel like you're eating outside even when inside (where it's warmer). Expect this place to be PACKED when the Walnut Creek weather warms up.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have had dinnerMy wife and I have had dinner here at least six times now. The service and food are consistently very good. There is an energetic crowd, but it is not too noisy. When the weather is nice, the restaurant rolls open their firestation garage doors connecting to the outside eating area. This provides a comfortable indoor/outdoor feeling that adds a casual and relaxing element to the restaurant. The menu includes a nice selection of seafood, beef (including juicy tavern burgers) and chicken entrees. Appetizers and side dishes include tasty and healthful salads and vegetables that are great for sharing. We highly recommend this restaurant.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved our first lunch here.We loved our first lunch here. We came from out of town and have since recommended it to others. Our Hemmingway's Daquiris were fantastic. My goat's cheese tart was divine. My mother, 90 years old, who loves to lunch or dine at places that serve food better than she can cook at home was very pleased with her Mediterranean Stew except that it was too spicy for her. This trend toward jalapenos in everything including desserts is a bit much in our opinion.
We also heard from local sales people that the burgers at Happy Hour were incredible!3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMReally terrific menu withReally terrific menu with unique presentations of the usual stuff. A bit noisy but the food, drinks and service make it worthwhile.12/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
