Whenever we go to the corner bistro we are never let down. They do an amazing job and the service is excellent. It’s a BYOB Which is even nicer

Very quiet dinner on 1/1 Place was empty and it should always be busy! The food was excellent and service was fantastic - Split the Burrata for an appy and then split the mushroom pasta special for a pasta course - Dinners were the Duck, Crusted Salmon and Short Ribs - all cooked well and very flavorful!

The Corner Bistro is a great restaurant for a family gathering. Food is good and service is very good. Waiters and waitresses are extremely attentive.
Noise level can get very loud at times.
I would recommend this restaurant.

Great food and service, especially considering it was a busy night with a few big tables/parties going on. We have been impressed with The Corner Bistro both times we ate there and will be back for sure!

The food and service were very good except the server got my husband’s order wrong so (he asked for the Drunken Rigatoni which had filet tips but they brought out thePink Vodka Rigatoni which had shrimp). I was almost finished eating by the time he was given his meal. It was a minor glitch but prevents me from giving 5 stars. It is a rather loud restaurant with couples and families so I would not recommend it for a romantic dinner. We will return for the delicious food but will make sure the server understands exactly what we want from the menu.

It's been a couple of months since I was at the restaurant and I noticed the staff is green, prices are noticeably higher, and the menu is a little different. I always enjoyed the vegetable risotto with shrimp, but now it's with scallops. I'd rather have the shrimp. This used to be my favorite restaurant, but it seems like others are running it now. Oh well, all good things must come to an end.
Too bad, I miss Sal on accordion too

Attended at 3pm with a party of 2. Was the only party in the restaurant. The server was very young and on her phone with 4 other employees in the dining room. The food is very expensive for what you get. The food was microwave was clearly microwaved. You could taste it and literally hear the microwave going off in the kitchen. The steak was extremely overdone despite being order medium-rare. Save your money and go somewhere else. The inside decor is very nice but the food and staff don’t match up.

Excellent. We recently moved to Randolph and this was our first time there. We went there purely by luck.
As a Frenchman who is into good food, the Corner Bistro in my opinion was outstanding.
My wife who is Cuban who also enjoys fine cuisine already has asked me as to when we would be going back.
Thank you Oscar and the staff for a lovely evening.

As always food was great, sitting outdoors was a plus. We just felt being rushed. We barely finished the appetizers and the entrees were served. We visibly could see the servers eyeing the table waiting for us to leave.

Dinner was delicious! I had been there before but the three guests that I brought along with me had never been. They were very impressed with the appearance of the dining area, the outside dining area and our waiters were very friendly and Extremely attentive. It was one of our guest birthdays, the waiter came out with a candle and sang happy birthday to her it was fabulous. I will certainly be coming back again.

We had an excellent meal. There were 4 of us and everyone enjoyed the meal. The staff was very attentive and the tables nicely separated. It was very cold out so we ate inside. The waiting staff all wore masks. We were vaccinated but it gave us a feeling of security that they wore masks since they served food.

Very unusual tasting French Onion Soup. Tasted like a touch of tomato was in it, certainly not traditional at all. Stay away from the Duck Breast. Fatty, a lot of gristle and poor flavor. Sorry to say we didn’t enjoy our meal.
