The Restraunt has a relaxing atmosphere, lounging area but small! We made a reservation at the Chefs Bar and upon arriving they seated us at a table, which we didn’t want! They did however move us to the bar but made it seem like they were doing us a favor (when that’s what I had requested), and we were the only people sitting at the bar! The waitress came over right away and went over the menu, left to get our drinks then quickly came back for our orders we asked for more time since we wanted to relax and enjoy our drink but she again came back quickly this time telling us that we should put our order in so that we wouldn’t have to wait since it’ll be getting very busy and this would help her and us (very condescending also), so we did very rushed (still we were the only people at the bar)! At this point I am totally annoyed, I then asked for crackers or bread (I ordered oysters) she then told me that we’d have to buy a baguette to have bread, I looked at and said no thank you! She also said oh, do u have a reservation (which we did) not sure what she was implying but that really finished it for me! We weren’t even finished eating and she came over to take our plates away, I really couldn’t believe this! Would never ever go back......and they might want to move that waitress to another part of the restaurant maybe where she doesn’t have to interact with customers!

My friends and I had the most wonderful brunch at Cornerstone, we are all looking forward to going back soon! The menu was perfect for brunch/lunch, tons of tasty options, and the food (and drinks) were fantastic. We sat at the Counter, got to see our meals put together, so fun!

Had a great dinner at Cornerstone not too long ago. Decided to try Sunday brunch. We ordered an egg sandwich & three frittatas. The frittata was actually a lukewarm wedge of crust less quiche. It had no taste, wasn’t hot and was a tiny portion. Eggs sandwich had a lukewarm pre made egg soufflé. Only good thing was the bacon. Food so bad & service so poor cancelled a future dinner reservation. Asked to speak w owner/manager no one come out to speak w me.

This is my favorite restaurant in Wayne. It is always a pleasant experience. The food is delicious and perfectly prepared and presented. I would like to see more seasonal specials on the menu since I am a regular. The owners are wonderful and so gracious. They put heart and souls into this place and it shows.

This is our favorite restaurant on the Main Line. Food is consistently delicious, staff is friendly and efficient, and it is delightful fun to watch these awesome meals being prepared in front of us.

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.

Bourbon balls were a sweet ending to an excellent meal. Can’t wait to return. This is a wonderful addition to the dining scene in Wayne.

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.
