The place is very pretty, huge inside, nice bar. We enjoyed everything but our server, he made a great introduction and that was about it. He kept messing up on our checks and would take a while to check on us. BUT I WILL GO BACK! FOOD WAS GREAT!

Loved the atmosphere. The food was just ok and overpriced. The service was super slow. I think they were having trouble with the computers while we were there. The drinks were ok but pricey. Would go back but try something different.

We had to get up and request a server after being seated. Took almost 20 minutes. The girl who served us was very sweet, but was not truly assigned to our table so she seemed a bit overrun. Food was good, not great, but good. Atmosphere is good.

I wish restaurant descriptions on Open Table would be more clear about the restaurant being in a hotel. We would have likely made another choice had we known that. Our meals were nothing to write home about, and my chicken had to be sent back as it was cold and gummy. The manager did a. great job of handling that situation. My Bees Knees cocktail was delicious, but my daughter's primly pear margarita was watery and sad. The location and atmosphere, decor and comfort level were great. I wish the food tasted as good as the dining room looked.

The burnt ends appetizer is very good. There is a nice glaze on the chunks of brisket. The burnt ends were noticeably more tender than the last time I was there so that's a good thing.

The 7 layer salad with Adobo chicken was really delicious and filling.

They took the fish sandwich off of their menu, which is a shame. It was CRAZY good. Messy as hell, but it was the best fish sandwich I've ever had. Corner - bring it back!

We booked a table for 9, as one in the party really wanted a cheeseburger, and we told him how good the burgers were. He ordered it medium rare with cheese and no egg. It came medium well with an egg and no cheese. He repeated the order at least three times stressing the cheese, but that is not what he got.

Normally I really enjoy the food here, but they had a "special" menu for Valentine's Day weekend, which left off two of my favorite items, AND they were out of my third choice. Super disappointed about that, but they knew that so they comped us dessert for the table (the apple cobbler was awesome) - that was nice but still didn't get what I came for. Ended up with fish tacos, which were good, but I'm surprised nothing comes with them like a slaw or beans or a salsa, not even any chips. Also, a bit odd on the seating; we reserved a table for 8, which we got, but it was a long skinny booth of two tables, so basically you could only see and talk to the person sitting right next to you. The other tables were pretty close to the booth as well, so it seemed like servers were about to fall into our table as they passed us.

The food looked great but was under cooked, fairly certain out waiter was coked out of his mind, I get that it is the cold and flu season but add his inability to concentrate, and it pretty clear. The wine tastes like vinegar and the bottle had to be sent back. There was a purple led light shining in my face, and the table was very long I could not have a conversation with my wife

Food was just OK. Not a big menu selection. Tomato Bisque tasted like smoke and salt - not good. House salad and burger were good but nothing special. The glasses of wine were a tiny pour for the price. The main complaint was that wait staff kept dragging things through the dining room to the outside seating area - racks of glassware and dishes, even TWO GARBAGE CANS at one point. Gross! That can’t be up to code, can it?

Very nice surprise for a hotel restaurant. Great location in JW Marriott. We walked in through the bar which looked pretty cool. Patrick was our server and did a great job tailoring our order to our specific dietary needs. Wife had the salmon which she raved about and I had the double pork chop. Chop was perfectly done - tasty and juicy. I had them sub haricot verts for creamed corn and they too were very well prepared.

The only negative was the noise level - in part due to the fact we were seated next to the bar, which on a Friday evening was pretty loud with hotel goers everywhere. Overall though a fun place for drinks or dining.

Server was friendly and knowledgeable on the menu choices but the service was slow. The food was very good, braised beef rib nachos appetizer a big hit at the table of 6 (the meat was delicious). The taco’s were all good especially the beef barbacoa and fish. Red snapper was good as well. The drinks were weak, which was disappointing since the drink menu was extensive and the bar was happening.

The food was very good. I had the shrimp and grits, and they were delicious. My guests had the NY Strip and it looked good. We had to ask for the steak, because it wasn’t on the menu that night - which was part of the reason I chose that restaurant (the online menu showed steak). The zucchini cornbread and Brussel sprouts were fantastic. I felt like our waitress should’ve explained that the sides were large enough to share - we wasted a lot of food because we had way more than we could eat. It’s very dark in the restaurant. We had to use our cell phones to read the menu. Nonetheless, it was overall a nice meal and experience. I would go back.

This place had a great vibe and ambiance! We started with a super good cornbread. Our drinks were good as well. However, the shrimp and grits portion was very small. My sister had the turkey sandwich which had a piece of paper on the cheese in her sandwich. And that was really disappointing to her and ruined her evening. Our waitress was great and super understanding and made our bill right.

It was awful! Was not informed that would be fixed menu only. $60 per person for a cold very small piece of prime rib. Everything was cold. Mashed potatoes were nasty. Asked waiter if everything was supposed to be cold. Manager came over, apologized. Took everything back. Finally brought out more food, was only slightly warmer but did bring au joys and horseradish so made it edible. Potatoes were much better, everything else was just kind of yuck. Should have gotten up and left. Pretty much the worst Christmas dinner ever. Website did NOT say prefixed menu only. Would have been nice to know. Would highly recommend anything else.

Wasn’t sure what to expect at a hotel restaurant but must say was pleasantly surprised. The jalapeño mustard grouper was cooked perfectly and accented with a delicious mustard sauce.

Loved our braised short rib!! Also had fabulous squash soup!
he house vodka gimlet was less than ok - should have called for a better vodka, or maybe lime juice was not fresh.
Fabulous food menu - but noisy venue. It was too cold to sit outside, but my guess is it would have been a much better dining experience if it was nice weather and we were outside, or at least in one of the booths instead the tiny table for two right next to the bar.

My family of four ate at Corner Restaurant on Thanksgiving 2019. While the food all tasted good, the portions were meager and not nearly enough food to fill any of us and we even ordered the additional side of green beans. At $42/person flat rate for the holiday meal, I expected more food and free refills since the family-style serving plates were so small.
You can do better than this!
