Pleasantly surprised, last
Pleasantly surprised, last minute decision and booking. The arctic char was outstanding, the fried pickles were good. The fried cauliflower may have been a bit overdone, but still tasty.

We really enjoyed eating at
We really enjoyed eating at the Corner! The biscuits they brought out in the beginning were fantastic! All of the food in general was delicious- I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf, as recommended by the waitress and I would definitely get it again. The portions were filling but not overwhelming, which I like- you leave feeling full and satisfied but not stuffed. The atmosphere was great too!

Took my family from out of
Took my family from out of town here. They were able to accommodate us as a table of five near an open window, as their excellent roof-top seating is set up for parties of four or less. Food was very good, no draft beers (only bottles/cans), wines starting at $8 for the glass. A lovely place for a date or outdoor seating!

Feels like it was made just for me!
I have been going to the Corner for some time now. I absolutely love it. The food is delicious while being at such a good price. I love picking and sharing when I go out to dinner. The Corner's new menu is meant just for that! The large window, energetic bar and barn wood tables create the perfect atmosphere that just keeps me coming back! Ideal date spot!

Food was very good, service
Food was very good, service was excellent. Seating was just a little too crowded for my taste. Menu had something for everyone. Wine and beer selection was decent and fairly priced.
I'll be back.

We had brunch after the Broad Street Race and after initially slow service, the pace was fine.We started with a round of mimosas which were great. Our group enjoyed the crab cakes benedict , eggs benedict, breakfast burrito, cheesy grits and biscuits with sausage gravy and everything was delicious. We recommend The Corner and will definitely return. BTW, the dinner menu looks really good, too.

Would go again
The food was great although some of the portions were small for my husband (ie: gnocchi and shrimp). Nice ambiance. Music got a bit loud around 6pm.

My first time here and was
My first time here and was very impressed with the entire experience. Weather didn't permit a rooftop experience but everything else added up to a great experience. Can't say enough about the staff - they were friendly, efficient and attentive. Prices are reasonable and everything we had was very good. Can't wait to return.

Loved the Corner
What a great new spot! Too chilly to sit outside the night we went but it could be a great on a nicer night. Love the gourmet comfort food!!! Definitely a place to go back and try more of the menu!

A friend and I were wandering around looking for somewhere to eat before a concert at the Trocadero. We were sold on the menu's combination of interesting new ideas and traditional comfort foods. We got a perfect table right at the restaurant's huge open window fronting street dining. Awesome people watching in addition to dinner is always a plus. Got there in time for some great happy hour specials, were brave enough to try the deep fried pickles (actually kind of delicious), and then had a great meal. The dinner portions weren't huge, but were reasonably priced -- and with offerings like bacon wrapped meatloaf, you wouldn't want them to be huge. We'll definitely go back -- next time, we're eager to check out the rooftop bar!

Good food, off night for server?
The food was really interesting and very tasty, but I think our server was having an off night. We had to flag her down to make our drink orders as well as our dinner order. The portion sizes are small (as noted in other reviews), but she didn't let us know that, or suggest we get a starter or salad. She was just not very attentive or helpful. But the food was really good, so I'd go back to The Corner when I am in Philly again.

Always a good time!
This was my fourth time eating at The Corner, and I've been nothing but impressed with each visit. The drinks well-constructed, the service has never been a problem, and the food is great! I highly recommend the hushpuppies and the fried chicken. One of our fellow diners also ordered the duck breast, which was cooked perfectly.

Been there for brunch twice.
Been there for brunch twice. Great selection of food. Attentive service without being intrusive. Would highly recommend for brunch. Planning to go for dinner within the next three weeks and provide another positive review. My partner has been there for dinner and enjoyed his duck entrée very much.

The service was excellent. The food was hot and tasted great. We really enjoyed the evening.

The food at Corner is very good - the snacks alone are worth it! I highly recommend the hush puppies.

Great Center City experience!
Recently had my birthday dinner at the Corner. The service was quick and courteous. A bit noisy due to the size and open air streetfront, but not annoyingly boisterous. The New American cuisine is among the best I've had- not overdone, but still something new. Swanky rooftop seating/bar is a must.
Decent beer list, but the cocktails are AMAZING. Heavy focus on sweet/spicy combos
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with another couple - so 4-top. Wasn't super pleased with our server, she wasn't very attentive - asking if we'd like drinks or apps, etc. Apps are very small - which I understand, just a good fyi. Featured drinks look fantastic, I'm pregnant, so did not partake. Everyone at the table ordered something different, and everyone enjoyed their meals 100% - VERY good! I would definitely go again, and bring more friends to enjoy.

Never let us down ...
Love love love this place. We discovered this place a year ago as we stumbled upon it. We usually come for special occasions. Every time we come the menu is changed so it gives us variety and the food is always awesome. We will be back again.

This was the first time we've come to this place, It is absolutely delicious...everything on the menu is great. Can't wait to go back ASAP

Cute in the corner!
Very cute, it smells amazing upon entrance. The food was great. Went for brunch. They had a very classic but with their own touch of unique brunch menu. From the duck options to favs beans! I've never seen favs beans on a menu in Philly. And although I'm allergic to them the dish sounded so amazing I was wishing I wasn't! Cocktails had a nice twist to them loved the herbal notes! Inexpensive, a great ambience, and wonderful food! Who could want more!

Great for brunch
Have dined here several times for brunch and have been pleased. Interesting, fresh and tasty choices. Would recommend to anyone.

Good food and we didn't have to wait too long for service. It was a busy Friday and the waiter disappeared a few times.

Awesome food in neighborhoosetting
Food was wonderful, definitely try the hush puppies and biscuits. Had the meatloaf and Mac & cheese and they were as good if not better than soul food restaurants in the South. Lots of new and exciting choices to eat here, wish we had time to stay and try more dishes.

Really Neighborhood Find!
Went The Corner for a casual birthday dinner with my family on a Tuesday night. Service was great, food was outstanding! The fried chicken and collard greens was really tasty and it’s actually an entire guinea hen. Very cool! Presentation was well done; nothing fancy, just good simple southern food. I’ll definitely go back.

The Corner hit or miss
I have been to this restaurant a few times on different occasions. On Saturday evening, I made reservations for a group of my friends to go to dinner and then out on the town. When we arrived we were seated quickly and the waitress got our drink orders, appetizers and our dinner order taken. The waitress was very pleasant and we asked up front if our bill could be separated by the number of people at the table. She said no problem. As it got later and her more people came into the restaurant, she didn't check on us and it took awhile between our appetizers and our main meal to reach us although we had been at the table awhile. When we were finished with dinner, we did order dessert.

THE RIGHT FIT
THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND THE PORTION SIZE WAS JUST RIGHT FOR SOMEONE LOOKING TO BE FIT. THE PERFECT DINNER PLACE FOR COUPLES.

Dinner for two
My husband and I are from out of town. When searching for restaurants with in walking distance from our hotel we found The Corner's web site very helpful and easy to navigate for making reservations as well. Food was delicious, service excellent and the atmosphere was nice but casual. I would definitely recommend for a relaxing time!

Comfortable yet elegant
This is a great place for brunch. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. They have a nice breakfast cocktail selection also. They also have an upstairs for the night time croud. I would recommend this for couples or small groups.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love trying new places around Philly and this one is now at the top of our list! Great food and service!

I took some out of town friends to this restaurant on Saturday evening. It was excellent. Food is out of this world. Highly recommend.

Great food, perfect environment
The food here was so good that I ordered take out for my husband! I must admit that they service wasn't great, it wasn't bad but definitely not great. Once the crowd picks up it is a little difficult to find your server; they seem to get overwhelmed in such a small source. We had the Bush puppies, the Truffle Grilled Cheese, the wings, and the Caesar salad, all were delicious! Will definitely return.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food. Good desserts. Just don't get the poached pears We loved the devil eggs and the fried pickles.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a perfect fit for a wonderful evening. They have the best chicken pot pie I've ever tasted!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This small space may be a bit tight, but it does not scrimp on service, ambiance or food quality! The 4 of us all had delicious meals that were not overpriced. In particular, the Chicken Pot Pie was excellent -- and filling! Mmmmmm.
Noise was the only drawback. Background music was a bit loud, and the hard surfaces reflect the various ongoing conversations, raising the noise level to "energetic".
We will be back for more of the great food and good wine choices.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Four of us went to brunch. everything was wonderful!
