Nice spot in Harlem. Food was good. Service was good. My main complaint is that the restaurant was way too dark. I needed the flashlight on my phone to read the menu. I couldn't see what I was eating. For that reason alone, I probably will not return.

I can’t compliment Corner Social enough. I went for brunch, but feel like it’s a great spot for any occasion.

Communical feel to the place. I liked what I ordered but, the appetizers got me full before I had the meal. So I had to bag a portion of the meal to take home. The drinks were right on point. I only needed one!... I will return soon...

It was my birthday and a few of my friends came to celebrate with me. ( i celebrated my bday here a few years ago as well). The bartender, Jay made it extra special with tending to myself and party. Made sure we were drinking water with all the alcohol we consumed. Hennesy was giving out shots of mixed drinks we ended up purchasing and the dj was on point.

I arrived at Corner Social 15mins early. My reservation was booked for 5pm. I was not allowed to sit at a table until 5pm came. The kitchen was closed until 5pm. The only option giving was to stand at a crowded bar. Just squeeze in there somewhere. Get it togther people..

Food, service & ambiance all a cut above. Delighted!

arrived within the 15-minute grace period for my 4:00 reservation only to be told that the kitchen closed a few minutes before 4:00. Mmmkay, then why accept reservations for that time?

The hostess said she meant to call to let us know, but she would hold a table for us for 5:00 when the kitchen re-opened. We returned at 5:00, the earlier hostess was preparing to leave, didn't acknowledge us or, apprently, leave a note for the new hostess. After explaining what happened, we were seated.

There were several delays - the waitress coming to take our order, the drinks coming to the table, and my meal. But she was quick to bring the menu for additional items to be ordered and to bring the bill.

Some people in my group ordered appetizers only, others ordered an appetizer and an entree, I ordered an entree only. After waiting more than 30 minutes and asking about my meal, the waitress explained she "coursed" the order, so my meal would be out when the other entrees we brought to the table. What?! Why no ask me if I'm OK with that? Normally, I would be, but since the restaurant pushed out our resevation by an hour, I was very hungry and frustrated.

When we asked the waitress if she could split the bill, she said she couldn't remember who had what and would just bring us a pen to do it ourselves. Seriously?

All this and the noise level was loud enough to be a day party. I'm not going back.

I planned a birthday lunch for two 92 year olds who came with walkers and cane and came late. The staff was most accommodating and patient. The food was a hit. I enjoyed the fish filet and the garlic spinach. If you want a quiet conversation, this is not the place to go, but if you want to people watch, have a relaxed meal, you're on.
