I've visited Corner Cafe a few times now. My previous experience was great. However, I felt that the service was lacking in my most recent visit. Our waiter worked very hard to accommodate us. But it took multiple attempts to get any of the staff's attention to get him over to take an order, or to ask him to provide things our table needed. Furthermore, the staff were almost dismissive of our requests. Not sure if I'll come back to visit. If I do, it'll be on a very slow weekday.

It was a great Brunch despite the crowds and noise which comes with any Sat. Love the food and the service and you really can’t go wrong, as long as you reserve your spot early, otherwise the wait could be the death of you!

One hour wait for a brunch on Sunday morning when you make reservations is not my idea of good quality service. Will hardly go back on a Sunday

Food is always good here but yesterday wasn't so good. Brunch took 45 minutes to arrive and my eggs were poached too long. Waiter was wonderful and had nothing to do with the problems going on in the kitchen.

Corner Cafe is one of our favorite places for lunch. The lamb sandwich, the chicken blt and the vegetarian sandwich are my favorites. My wife had the grouper entree, and said it was better than the grouper at far more expensive seafood restaurants. I tasted it and it was incredible. Our server was friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and more than accommodating to my wife's lactose intolerant needs. This is why we return to Corner Cafe time and time again.

This place does not disappoint. Love the food and absolutely ADORE Freddie (our waiter). My daughter and I have only dined there 2x, and Freddie was our waiter on both occasions. Very nice gentleman and took care of us very well. Just a bit of a wait but well worth it. If there are any CONS, I don't exactly understand the PRIORITY SEATING (which we had but didn't get seated for 20-30 mins). It's all good since I know we went during peak brunch hours. Overall, we LOVE it!!!

Service was very slow and inattentive at first (long wait for water...hot water for tea was forgotten and not delivered for 15 min. until I asked). But once it got back on track after the first 30 minutes, food was good and service was fine. Restaurant is loud but not overwhelmingly unbearable for table conversation.

Pros:
• We loved using open table to get our name on the list! It only took about 15 minutes to seat us during peak brunch hours.
• The bread and pastries are to DIE FOR here - so fresh
• overall the food is delicious and quality is high for the price


Cons:
• Once seated, we waited for 15 minutes for a server to even acknowledge us. We ended up having to pull aside a waitress and ask if she could be our server as no one had even come over to get us water.

Do not pretend that you are giving people “priority seating” through this app when you are clearly not. Just waited over 45 minutes for a table that I had booked “priority seating” for. When we checked in the hostess acted super casual and told us 5-10 minutes. So we waited. Each time we checked in - oh just about 5 more minutes. Really?? Oh and we had an insane two year old with us. So it’s not really the easiest thing to entertain a small child in a packed restaurant for 45 minutes. I completely understand restaurants not taking reservations and having a long wait on sundays for brunch (clearly every restaurant does which is why we didn’t bother going anywhere else). But it’s not right to be misleading with your customers- tell them they have priority seating and the table will be ready in 10 minutes when that’s clearly not the case.

I appreciate your feedback about your experience at the host stand and with priority seating. The system is meant to reduce the wait time and should be quoted accurately in the beginning. I apologize that your wait was substantially longer than you were informed, we will definitely address this issue. I will be reaching out personally and I hope that you will allow us to provide a better experience in the future.

Had a wonderful birthday breakfast. Food was outstanding, our server was personable and helpful. The restaurant does get a little noisy when full, which sometimes makes it difficult to hold a conversation. Only thing I could say that needs improvement is the hostess...didn't smile, wasn't welcoming at all. Perhaps she was having a bad day.

We had a priority waitlist confirmation for eight people. We waited about 30 minutes. We placed our orders fairly quickly and waited 45 minutes for our food. We saw other tables around us getting their food long before ours.
One of our children ordered a kids meal that came with fries and she got five fries. My avocado toast was extremely tough. I couldn’t even cut it and could barely bite into it. Everything Else was OK. Our server was very nice.

Service was virtually non existent. Waiter took our order and never came back. Food was not as ordered AND the bacon on the sandwich was under cooked and my wife’s crispy bacon was charred beyond edible. Manager offered to remake sandwich but it was 10 min after delivery because waiter never checked on us. Too little too late.... we couldn’t even get our bill from our waiter. Had to ask another server for help. .
