This was our first visit in a while, due to the pandemic. As always, the food was delicious, and the service very attentive. Needless to say, we used to visit on Monday evenings to hear Rio Clemente play keyboard, live music is really currently out of the question. We look forward to having another delicious meal there in the near future-What an extensive menu for lunch. 5 Star thanks

Corner bistro continues to be a local gem. Food, service and price are all excellent. This small family owned BYOB is consistently a great spot to go for dinner. Have been coming here for over five years and yet to be disappointed.

First time here ! Absolutely wonderful delicious food. The service was so fast. Usually at restaurants we wait forever for our food, but not here. There were so many specials on their menu to choose from. Beautiful atmosphere inside. Perfect for a date night, special occasion or event. We can’t wait to go back to try something else.

overall a good restaurant with polite and attentive staff. The food prep is competent but lacks invention. My wife's chicken parmigiana was not on the menu but they agreed to our request, which was nice. However it was served as a whole chicken breast and not sliced or pounded thin which was a disappointment. I hope for better the next time we dine there.

Fuimos con mi marido a almorzar, muy buena atención. Los calamares fritos y las albóndigas excelentes. El pescado que comimos luego, muy bueno. Muy buen precio.

My fiancé and I really enjoyed having dinner here. We both had seafood for dinner that was amazing. Dessert was equally as delicious! The wait staff was very friendly and tentative. Promptly refilling wine or removing plates as needed. Definitely a place to come back to!

Outstanding local restaurant serving continental cuisine in a beautiful casual setting. Service is professional and the BYOB option makes this an ideal choice for dining. In nice weather the outdoor patio is a delight.

We made a reservation this past weekend. This was the first time we've been back to this our favorite restaurant since covid started. Well, it did not let us down. The food was still super delicious and the waiters are still incredibly friendly. Happy to be back. Highly recommend it.

Large, varied menu with selections in every type of food from chicken, steak, fish, and pasta dishes. Deliciously prepared and nicely plated. Staff is attentive and friendly.
In warmer weather the outdoor dining area is a beautiful space to enjoy your meal and a bottle of your favorite wine (BYOB).

The Corner Bistro located on Route 10 East , Randolph, New Jersey is awesome every time. I have eaten both lunch and dinner there and it is always amazing. The staff are so polite and fun at the same time that they are professional staff. The food NEVER disappoints. I enjoy it so much that when I am asked where to meet for lunch or dinner -
The Corner Bistro is my choice. Try it - you will NOT be disappointed.
