The pork chop and scallops were perfectly cooked. The food came out very quick.

Though the service was a little slow to start it was eventually attentive. The food was outstanding. I had scallops which were perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. My husband had chicken and dumplings (potato gnocchi) which was equally delicious. Followed up with Butterscotch pudding which was a nice adult nod to a childhood favorite. The ambiance was relaxed and inviting. It was a very pleasant evening out.

We ame here for Valentines Day. Really appreciate the ambiance and food good overall. The service was unfortunately really rushed and detracted from the overall experience. There were open tables, so it didn't seem necessary to try to get people in and out. Overall, I like the place and the ambiance, but was disappointed by the service.

I have frequented Corner's Tavern since it's opening many years ago. It's a fantastic location and attractive space. It has a great footprint for an amazing dining and drinking experience...however...both the food and service have slowly slipped over the years. What you are getting here in terms of food and quality is expensive pub grub. You are paying for the aforementioned atmosphere but it is a shame that ownership has not invested as much in their food and service. There is nothing terribly wrong with either but it's just, well, okay. I do hope that new ideas reinvigorate the restaurant and soon.

We dine here reasonably often. The food is excellent as is the service. My rack of lamb had been grilled perfectly. My wife very much enjoyed her roasted broccoli and Parmesan soup after starting with the secret shrimp. Good, interesting wine list; great beverages (I like the Manhattan). Our server went out of her way to remedy the slightly too-sweet vodka gimlet my wife ordered. It's a great place and we know we'll be back. Go there!

After reading the reviews we decided to try Corners Tavern. We were pleasantly surprised how good the food and service was. Many options to chose from in the menu and a pretty good wine list too. Service was really good as it was a quiet night when we were there.
The only opportunity for them would be to keep their website menus current with the menus at the restaurant especially with the wine list
We will definitely go back

The place was not very busy, especially for the time of day. The place is has weird "art" on painted the wall, the service was not good at all. I ordered the pork chop and did not finish it because as I was getting close to the bone it started getting bloody looking like it was undercooked. I'm sure it wasn't, but I had lost my appetite by that point.


I had eaten at Cole's chop house in Napa a couple weeks previous and got the chop there. It was so much better, both in presentation and taste and did not cost any more.

I have eaten at Corners Tavern twice in several months - both times for dinner.
The food was delicious.
The wine selection was very nice.
The service was great.
We were seated at a quiet table per our request and were able to talk to each other without yelling - how delightful :)
We will return and we will bring our friends - thank you for the lovely evening !

Given the atmosphere, location, service, and perfectly curated menu this has become my "go-to" restaurant when I'm dining with friends in Walnut Creek. By "perfectly curated menu" I mean that the variety and number of choices feels perfect.

Good Food but too pricey. Was at least expecting more food for the price.
I think $200 for dinner for 2 people is too much.

My spouse took me for my birthday. Very nice restaurant and decor. We sat at the bar to take advantage of Happy Hour and received great service by both bartenders. Drinks and food was very good! I had a great birthday evening @ Corners Tavern.

My friend and I had a lovely Sunday lunch where we could catch up after the holidays. The food was delicious with generous portions (which were turned into a take-away). The wait staff was very friendly without being intrusive. Everything seems to be done with care at The Corners.
We will be back.

Very small table....They weren’t willing change tables even though there were other tables that were empty.
We had dinner and most of the tables were still empty.
It will be a long time before we go back

Not much for vegetarians. Very noisy at 6:30 p. As with almost all local restaurants their non-alcohol drinks are bar mixes - zero quality fruit juices.

We were a party of 8 here for lunch during the week. All the diners, with the exception of myself, enjoyed their meal. My Rueben sandwich was on the chewy side, but the taste was good. A couple of us had the lemon tart for dessert which was sooo good. Great service, quiet atmosphere, but that might have been due to the fact that we beat the lunch crowd and it was raining that day. Overall experience was very good. Would go back again, but would try something else other than the Rueben sandwich.

It was NYE, so we cut our server some slack, but the food was awful. The ‘smoked’ chicken wings had no flavor, spice or heat, they tasted like plain chicken.
The Brussels sprouts were ok.
My wife’s roasted broccoli soup was inedible, as it tasted like cream of mushroom dyed green. My chicken & dumplings dish was equally bad, in a pool of overwhelming sauce that tasted like hot Italian salad dressing.
Not going back ever.

The menu was short and didn't offer large variety this time. They do have good seasonal local foods. The appetizers were good, but the waiter was having trouble remembering our orders, and almost forgot a beer that was served at the end of the meal, said it was on the house since there was a delay, but we were charged for it at the end. I really wished that they would continue to serve the charcuterie patter of meats, and one of cheeses. That was great to order in the bar seating with drinks!

I've eaten here several times over the past few years and always found the menu, service, and food excellent. But they have a new chef and I didn't like the new menu as well as the old one. Still great place, but a click down in my opinion.
