On our first visit to what is becoming one of the Main Line’s “go to” dining spots, we were not disappointed. Adriana’s service, with a smile, was both warm and expert. The presentations were fresh and unique. And the wine list was just ample enough to truly offer variety, in taste and price. We loved our meals, too. (The recommended pork chop exceeded high expectations.) We shall return!

It was the first time I had visited and wasn’t sure what to expect. The ambiance was tasteful and classy. Food was delicious and quite the best frites I have had outside of France or Belgium. Service was efficient yet unhurried. We are already going to make another reservation.

We were seated at the chef’s counter which I planned for, but they sat us at the very inner left seats next to the grill. Within the first 5 minutes we were both sweating and couldn’t walk past the next couple comfortably due to a pole. Thankfully, they did move us to another spot at the counter and it was great to watch the chef.

The cheese plate was perfect. My husband had the veal and it was amazing. I was disappointed in the crab cake. I have been looking for a decent crab cake for years (ever since Totaros closed) and I was hoping this was it. There was little crab and too much filling which overpowered the crab flavor. We will probably go back but I will order something more well known next time.

On their menu they have “pastries and croissants” and they only gave us one croissant—they thought they were out of chocolate croissants and showed up with one. My loumagne sandwich was wet and tasted burnt... and the cypress sandwich was average at best and the fruit salad was one spoonful of fruit.

Decent overall. First couple of courses were too heavy on salt. Otherwise food was above average. Don't care too much for the Main Line wannabe crowd. Bit too loud.

Great food in a special (albeit small) setting. The type of restaurant where you think about what to get the next time you visit as you’re leaving. The kitchen is small, so serving times can be a bit long. As long as you plan for that, it shouldn’t be an issue.

For the price point I will definitely go elsewhere. The steak for two was as tough to eat as they come. I almost felt obligated to eat this meal because of how much it cost. We won’t be back...

Drove up from Lewes, Delaware to visit my son in Wilmington, Delaware and have dinner at Cornerstone. He has been raving about it since the first time he went and every time after. I was definitely not disappointed. From the moment we walked in the door until we walked out, everything was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

I've been wanting to try Cornerstone for awhile but since it is a hot spot I've had trouble getting a reservation. We were finally able to get in on a Wednesday night - but that's when I realized the bar & seating is always available first come, first served so come by 6pm on any evening get a seat and settle in for a great meal and great bar scene. The bartenders Mark & Jessie are fabulous and will make sure that your fabulous food (the mushroom pasta is a must!) is paired with an amazing and creative cocktail. I'm sorry that I let my lack of ability to plan ahead with a reservation keep me from dining at Cornerstone sooner.

The food was outstanding. I had oysters, and a pulled pork sandwich with a side salad. The pulled pork sandwich was appropriately sized, and definitely had more of a vinegar style bbq sauce which I love so it was perfect. The oysters were really good too, and the waiter seemed very knowledgeable in regards to the menu and where food was sourced etc.

This is definitely the type of restaurant where it seems the employees are passionate and proud of their output, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food. It is not cheap, but for folks who believe in paying for quality it is well worth it. It was my first time dining at Cornerstone, and I will be back sooner then later.

First time there, overall excellent experience. Charlie was great and also our server, Diann.
Ordered a great a bottle of Pinot from Oregon. Oyster sampler, east and west coast, it was good. Only suggestion is to serve oysters on bed of ice and not seaweed bc I like my oysters very cold. Both the pork and the veal entree was very good.
Look forward to returning to try more of the menu.

I love Cornerstone, the new bar area and food is always great! On my last visit, however, wine by the glass was limited in selection and too expensive at a minimum of $25/glass!
