Mar Vista Marvel
We are ecstatic that our neighborhood FINALLY has restaurant that we actually look forward to going to! While the cocktails are unique and the food is creatively composed, it is the genuine warmth of the staff that keeps us coming back. Few places this popular continue to treat customers as welcome guests and valued friends.

Great Birthday Celebration
We were lucky to try The Corner Door for the first time during L.A. Restaurant Week. The timing was perfect to start my birthday celebrations and we got a table through Open Table. Our server was Pat and he was spot on with thoughtful attention, good humor and recommendations. Our 3-course dinner (varied with different dishes for each of the three of us) was delicious - Burrata with asparagus, peas and cherries,steamed mussels, grilled cheese with wasabi arugula, meatballs with pickled onions - all were devoured. Red Velvet Twinkies, Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ice Cream and the incredible Chocolate Paloma finished a great meal. I'll be back often.

GOOD FOOD! BETTER SERVICE!
The food here was surprisingly refreshing in an innovative way. I recommend all foodies come try it out. The pricing is appropriate for what you get to experience. And the service was absolutely FANTASTIC. Superbly friendly and professional staff that were honest and informative.
I will DEFINITELY be coming back here again.

Great flavors, unique dishes.
This is our favorite Choi spot to date. The Burrata dish is crazy good, how they make those marinated cherries pair so perfectly is beyond me. They also maintain a solid beer selection.

Good but with room for improvement!
The burgers are fine but no match for Upper West or The Nook. The beef burger (cranberry/red onion jam, pecorino, bone marrow mayo) is tastier than the chicken burger, which is mealy-mushy. The grilled cheese (peaches, wasabi arugula) is fun but no equal to Greenspan's at The Foundry. The roasted brussel sprouts are addictive. Nice beer selection. Signature cocktails have unique combos. Desserts are marginal (red velvet twinkies were dry; chocolate paloma was ok). Wait staff is great. Chef Luke Reyes (who opened the place a year ago and won CHOPPED earlier this year) is gone, replaced by Kyle Schutte who added his own spin to a few menu items and swapped out the rest. Since they've only been open a year, I think it will grow more seasoned.

It is a Corner Gem
I really like this place. I have taken two friends there so far and both have really liked it. Great mixo, great ambience, yummy drinks and good eats. I love the oysters. Perfect for late night. It's my kind of place.

A Great Meal
My boyfriend and I are so happy that this restaurant came in down the street from our house, it is a favorite of ours. We took my brother and his girlfriend here for a birthday dinner and the food was perfect. It was a very busy Sunday night...my guess they have an extra bump in business now that they have TVs at the bar. Which were not loud and didn't cause too much of an issue...but I think I liked the restaurant better without them. Our server was slammed, but the food was perfect the drinks were great. Another great dinner at corner door.

love our hood
The corner door is a great little gem...local, intimate, accessible, great cocktails and extremely nice servers. We default here if we can't decide where to eat, the changing menu being small but providing a good array of choices. These are not cheesecake factory/C&O sized portions. Small, but well conceived and tasty. Waterloo & City will still be The Crest House atmosphere for us locals...A frame is still IHOP, but I'm glad for their existence to bring some good businesses to the area where yuppie foodies abound. A little something for everyone. But corner door is our favorite of that trio.

after work gathering
The food was really good, they had a spot for 5 people last minute, drinks are great. What more can you ask for. Its really loud here, but that is how all of these places seem to be. The waiter took a lot of care in describing everything on the menu, I will definitely consider coming back!

Dark, cool, fun dining & bar
Great drinks menu - the chunks of ice are great in the drinks- and drinks are very good, though small in size. Limited but very well-prepared and tasty menu. We ordered lots of apps to share and all were very very good. Cool urban feel with a lively atmosphere - but still able to hear your dinner companion. Fun place and priced exactly right for what it is.
