The food here is wonderful, we keep coming back. The chef goes the extra mile, clearly, brining and smoking meats to perfection.
The restaurant is noisy, but quieter if you can be near the outside. The burger and fries were outstanding, probably the best I have ever had anywhere. The smoked chicken was amazing, tender and juicy with incredible flavor.

Enjoyed the meal, the service, the decor. Great picnic lunch and wonderful zucchini soup. Very relaxing place for a nice lunch in the middle of shopping or just enjoying downtown WC.

Birthday Bash Success
We had a wonderful time dining at this restaurant. The noise took a little getting used to, but after some excellent wine tasting, we were able to tone it out. The food was delicious. I wouldn't consider myself a foodie, but I was impressed with how well all the flavors went together in a way I never expected. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our dish and appetizers thoroughly. Our server really helped set the mood for a fun and enjoyable evening. I recommend this place for a celebration because we felt so special when our menus had "Happy Birthday, Jeff!" and the date printed on top. It was a small gesture that went a long way.

The food was unique, different, and very tasty. A little on the pricey side. The noise level in the restaurant made it a bit difficult to carry on a close conversation.

The food, recommendations,
The food, recommendations, & service were fantastic. The noise level was quite high; the dining & bar area are open, very industrial so the noise level has one talking rather loudly. The food is exceptional, the wait staff quite fastidious & friendly. I recommend the following: Moscow Mule, Marinated Strawberries & Goat Cheese, Pork Chop. The pork chop was so delicious that my girlfriend & I wanted to pick up the bone, that's how delicious it was & a hearty portion of food, no small plates here!

Great new restaurant . Service was outstanding ! Brian was our sever. He must have checked on us 20 times! He made sure our evening was perfect!
Food was very good. Weather was beautiful so all windows/sliding doors were open, you'd feel you were outdoors. Loved it!

Good food. We were very disappointe
Good food. We were very disappointed in the extremely high cost of wine. I have not seen such high bottle costs in a restaurant in years.

We had such a wonderful time for our anniversary dinner. We especially loved the special touch of printing a "Happy Anniversary" keepsake menu to take home, and the gift of a delicious dessert.
Thank you to the staff for making our Anniversary Dinner so wonderful!

The pork chop was over sauced
The pork chop was over sauced and tough. Mushrooms were delicious. Good wine selection.

The Best of Both Worlds
The open front is so unique creating a lovely ambience, taking advantage of the beautiful weather we have in Walnut Creek, while still dining indoors. Although the portions varied greatly - the hamburger platter was plentiful while the halibut dish looked tiny by comparison - the food was delicious. Our server graciously replaced a Shandy which we found smelled lovely but tasted like bath soap. An unusual drink list. A very enjoyable evening.

Nice place for girls night out
My cousin and I ate at Corners Tavern on Saturday night. We had a 7:45 reservation but arrived 30 minutes early. We were seated immediately and given our choice of two tables next to each other (one inside - the other on the patio). We brought our own bottle of wine but started with a glass of Proseco. First course we chose the early girl tomato salad - nice balance of watermelon, cucumber, and tomatoes with a tomato vinegarette dressing. Our main was the hamburger with pickles onions and fries - the onions are yummy. For dessert we had a nectarine dish - grilled and stewed nectarines, almond crumble, and almond ice cream - wonderful. Presentation and service were both pleasing. I will definitely be back for another visit soon!

Great Neighborhood Spot
Walnut Creek has a lot of restaurants but none feels as warm and casual and inviting as the Corners. Staff is always friendly and knowledgeable; they have some great beers on tap and change them frequently. We usually order small plates and find that with a salad, that is plenty to eat. Recently, I ordered the chicken entree since they were out of the small plate option I wanted. It was delicious and enough for lunch the following day.

This is my second time in this restaurant and both times have been phenomenal. The food was excellent, especially the snap peas, just to die for. Service was equally great. I wll definitely come back.

We went there this week to celebrate my birthday. One nice touch that they do is to put your name on the menu that's at your table - i.e. Happy Birthday Judy was at the top of the menu. We had eaten there once before and I think I liked the dinner better last time (just based on what we ordered). Last time we had the fish and chips which were excellent and I also had the pan fried shrimp appetizer.
One of the items not to be missed though is the corn/crawfish soup - it's outstanding! We've had it both times that we've been there.
I enjoyed the dinner and liked the special mention on our menu, but I was surprised that they don't comp you a dessert. You do get a candle though!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, service not perfect
We enjoyed the food but the service and wait times between dishes was too long and not once did anyone apologize for the delays.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
the best fish and chip
their fish and chip is better the one I have in London. it is so crisp and light. Also their pork chop is excellent

We had a great anniversary dinner at Corners Tavern complete with a personalized menu! We were running a few minutes late and ou table was held for us. The food was very good!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Favorite
Our server recommended a lightly chilled French red which was perfect with our meal on a warm summer evening. I love sitting at the front of the restaurant with the garage doors open to the outside! My ale-battered flounder was outstanding and my hubbie enjoyed his barbequed pork chop.

San Francisco Feel
Finally, a restaurant in Wlnut Creek that is fit for a San Francisco foodie. Wonderful addition to Broadway Plaza.

We had a nice booth. The waiter
We had a nice booth. The waiter was exceptional. Friendly, new his food, very confident. Wish I had made a note of his name. The mushroom crepe was unusual and very good! Everyone in our group of 4 was very impressed by everything.
We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday boy was very happy and surprised that the restaurant had printed "Happy Birthday Craig" on the menus for him.
The front of the restaurant was open to the outside. Very spacious feeling.
I will be back with my girl friends for "happy hour" and more food!!

My friend said her tuna salad
My friend said her tuna salad was excellent, as was my cobb. The service was friendly and efficient. When I reserved, I had asked for a quiet table, and the hostess actually paid attention to this request and seated us in a quiet corner. Normally, my need for a quiet location is completely ignored so Corners Tavern scores some extra points with this one!

Casually Elegant Comfort Spot
This was our third visit to Corners Tavern - once for luch and twice for dinner. It is quickly becoming our "go to" place. Food, setting, and service combine to make each visit a relaxing escape. Stikes the perfect balance between sophistication and simplicity. Great food served by friendly staff that seems to love their job and take pride in their restaurant. It also feels unique - has a look and feel that differentiates it from other Walnut Creek dining spots (many of which are wonderful in their own way).
As I write this, I am looking forward to tonight's meal - we are taking friends for their first visit to Corners Tavern.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service; innovative menu
The service at Corners Tavern is top-notch. The ambience of the place is warm and cozy. Be sure to get a table on the patio. They have large heaters even if it's cool.
The hamburger is *to die for,* even with the $15 price tag. So huge that two light-to-moderate eaters could split it and be satisfied. The hamburger is on both the lunch and dinner menu.
On this visit, I ordered the salmon for dinner, and it was delicious. I ate every single drop of everything on my plate. My husband reported that the pork chop had "weird spices" on it, and that he didn't like it.
Bottom line, *if you're a picky eater,* make sure you know what's in your dish before you order it, as the chef makes some interesting and challenging choices.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best dessert selection in Walnut Creek - we have tried them all!!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
When they called to confirm
When they called to confirm the reservation, I mentioned it was my 15 year old's birthday dinner. They wished her a happy birthday when we walked in, and had personalized menu's at the table the said Happy 15th birthday with her name on them. It is tough to impress a 15 year old, but she was thrilled.
Food was amazing. Birthday girl had the watermelon/mozzarella salad. Delish.
The restaurant is so visually exciting. So much to look at :)
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Easy spot to dine
We have seen this location turnover in the past several years, and the decor is really different from prior tenants and service was great, really superior. Attentive, and let us chat without interruption, just knew our needs, and with a smile.
Cerviche and brussel sprout apps were awesome - chicken sauce was spicy and very different for chicken.
Open seating with the outdoor area, and even though is was cool, felt awesome. Big place, so drop by and you will likely get in pretty easily

Great Restaurant Experience
Dinner at the Corners Tavern was great. The meal, service and ambiance are all high caliber. I would go back again.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here twice so far, once for dinner and then had to experience their brunch. Both dining experiences were flawless. Cocktails are spot on and I had no complaints on the food. Great place to go with friends or take people from out of town. If I could make one suggestion, it would be that I wish their menu had a little more daring options. But other than that, I will definitely be dining here again.

Corners Tavern Fits The Bill
We went for dinner on a Sunday night. The restaurant was quiet and we spent a lovely two hours there. Our server was animated, attentive and knew her stuff. I started out with the Brussels sprouts. They are delicious, hot and a little crispy on the outside. My husband had the local field greens which were very good. For entrees we had the ale battered flounder and the Kabocha squash tortellini. The fish was delicious, hot and crispy not greasy and the piquillo aioli went with it beautifully. The tortellini derived most of it's flavor from the wild mushrooms but was tasty none the less. When you order coffee they leave you a pot, which I love. I can't remember the last time I wanted to stay so long, we'll definitely go back.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
it's all that!
our dining experience was top notch...our waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable, and appropriately attentive. we always look forward to the new items on the menu and have never been let down. too bad it's the chilly season...the open door experience is always a welcome retreat...we will however be back despite because it's the food that beckons...

Thank you, for a quality place, good service and some value for my $$$$

Very Enjoyable Experience
My fist time at Corners Tavern was a weekday lunch with a visiting out-of-town friend. It was a nice, warm day, and the front of the restaurant was wide open to a concrete patio that extended outward from the front. So, we took the opportunity to dine outside.
The menu is fairly limited, although still diverse enough (meat, fish, pasta, etc.) for most people to find a selection they'll like. The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. A very enjoyable experience. I look forward to returning to Corners Tavern.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good as usual
We come here every few months and enjoy the food. We like to order one thing at a time so we don't feel rushed and that worked out really well this time. The menu changes enough so there is always something new to try.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall a great experience, the food was very good and they even gave us the private dining room which was exceptional. Service fell a bit short however the place was packed but we found ourselves ordering at the bar on occasion and I had to grab my waiter to order some food. My guests mentioned they were a bit persistent collecting our bill but overall I was very pleased and would recommend this location for large groups and special occasions.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Relaxed dining experience
We were a group of 7 ladies celebrating a birthday and we were able to sit and talk long after we had finished our meal. There was no pressure for us to leave. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. We were at the back-end of brunch, so a couple of the choices were not available, which was a bit of a disappointment, but the waiter helped us make other choices.

Great food great service
We had a most enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner. Food was delicious, particularly the pork. Service was attentive and friendly. Drinks were great!! Place was a little noisy ad we had families with children next to us, but given holiday that is to be expected. Great addition to the Walnut Creek dining scene.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
More diversified Menu
This is a great rest. that we visit every week. The thing is I would hope management would expand the menu, after all this is a serious rest. and not a cafe, so when I see 5 appetizers a 4-5 choices for dinner, I get disappointed. The quality of the food is excellent & the service is Top notch, this is our only recommendation beside the noise level but that is a structural thing with the space that cannot be easily fixed. We have invited 3 couples over the past 6 wks and in every occasion, the limited choices on the dinner menu was the only negative. By the way, you do have the very best pork chop that I have ever tasted and we have been around! Kindest regards, Michael

I've been here 5-6 times and ALWAYS have the chicken wings. This time a friend and I also shared a cobb salad. It was good and the portion (when split) was perfect.
