Beautiful little restaurant with charming colors and decor. Neat outside dining area on front walls. Delicious food. Best Beef Wellington ever, sizable steaks. Service was okay, I thought a little more urgency should have been taken for the value.

It was our second time there. The food was excellent both times. It seemed busier this Saturday than we we were there in February and I think the service was a little slower because of it, but still acceptable. Our waitress was really doing a good job in spite of how busy it was. Would definitely go again.

Great place to go for a casual dinner with a friend. He had Bob’s Burger and I had linguine with Clams in a Ted sauce. Large portions and delicious. We’ll definitely be back often.

What a great place for brunch!! Staff really worked hard to make this a safe environment for all who ate out with them on Easter Sunday- great place to bring family and friends and the food and ambience were great! Loved their tasteful open outdoor area which has heaters and adjustable roofed in area for the chillier spring evenings!!

My experiences at The Cornerstone are consistently enjoyable. The wine list is well chosen, the food is simply prepared and delicious and the new 'outdoor' area is comfortable and cozy. This East Ender will gladly cross a bridge for a meal at The Cornerstone

This is a very good neighborhood restaurant. The menu was varied and contained many of the regular items one would expect, but with some nice enhancements. This was very suitable for a casual Saturday night meal with my wife

I made the reservation on open table for 9PM, unaware that the restaurant closes their kitchen at that time until we got there. My boyfriend said we should leave since we only had a couple minutes to order and our food probably wouldn’t be good Bc it’ll be rushed. The food was actually very good! The Arancini was sooo good and my salmon was perfect. I will for sure be coming back.

The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is that the crabcake was just ok. All of the sides, salads and ribeye steak were great. Desserts were great. Margins on the wine are a little extreme but fair enough. Great service.

Great safety precautions. Unfortunately were out of the first item I ordered (at the beginning of the day) but they were able to alter it slightly to make it work. Food was great, service was as well.

My brother and I took our grandfather out for a lunch date there, and it was as generally just very average. The service was good, but the food was simply mediocre. My sweet potato fries seemed to be over cooked/burnt and lacked flavor, and the grilled chicken sandwich was simply that - a grilled chicken sandwich. It was on the dryer side and just very very average. Honestly, it’s fine. I wouldn’t bring company here, but it’s satisfactory for a quick lunch.

Sooo cold. Did not stay to eat. Was 45 degrees outside and every window and door was open. Asked to move to a different table and was told we were in warmest spot. We were right near an open door. Clearly not the warmest spot.

The beef wellington was absolutely amazing. As soon as I took one bite, I instantly said "I feel so comforted!" haha. True though. I felt like I was at my grandmother's house on a cold, snowy day and she just whipped me up some beef wellington lol. It was that good. Oh and the parsnip puree was fire. Everything was awesome and our server, Alexander, was one of the nicest, most attentive servers I've ever had. Will be returning!
