    The food is always great it’s got a lovely atmosphere the waiters and waitresses always pleasant and it’s good value for the money. We were a large crowd for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and I got rave reviews from all of my friends who attended. They complimented me on my choice of restaurants and they had a great time they said.

    The Corner Bistro has become our favorite local restaurant, the food and service are top notch. It's a BYOB, it doesn't get any better.

    The service was poor, the portions were extremely small for Italian food and the salmon was undercooked. When I brought it to their attention they didn’t even care.

    We recently dined at the Corner Bistro to celebrate birthdays and had a wonderful time. The food was great, the service was fantastic and we really enjoyed ourselves. We were there on a Sunday for dinner and it was very quiet. We relaxed and were not rushed at all. I would highly recommend this place.

    We love their outdoor dining area, it is comfortable and far enough from Route 10 to not interfere with normal conversation. The service is excellent. Our server was pleasant and even moved an umbrella to the ground because he saw that the setting sun was in my eyes. We both had the Harvest salad to start. It was delicious. It really was big enough for a meal for me. My husband had the Almond Sole and I had the chicken florentine. My dinner was so big that I had it for an entire dinner the next night. Both dishes were very good.We both thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at The Corner Bistro. They have a limited wine menu, but you can bring your own. We never get dessert, so I can’t offer a review on that. We highly recommend The Corner Bistro!

    The Corner BistroResponded on November 2, 2022Hello Nathalie, what a nice review and great feedback! Thank you so much for taking your time to do this. We highly appreciate you as a customer and will always strive to keep all of you happy with delicious food and outstanding service. Our outdoors dinning is a big asset to our restaurant especially after Covid, for winter season it is closed but indoor dinning is fantastic as well, cozy and intimate environment for a great experience. Hope to see you soon!

    Food was below average. When we told the server, they brushed it off. We ordered chicken parm with vodka sauce and it came out w regular sauce. It came w linguini (we werent given an option) that had a crazy amount of sauce on it. The sauce was below average as well. Not the best experience.

    Food is always very good. It is a byob, so you don't have that charge-which can double your bill. It is elegant without being too expensive. They have an outdoor eating area which is superb.

    One of the many things about Corner Bistro that we like is the attractive outdoor dining they have. But we still come primarily for the food. I had the rack of lamb special, which was cooked exactly as requested and the order included 7 chops!

    The service was impeccable, not overbearing. Food was very good. Appetizers we especially enjoyed were the steamed class, mussels, eggplant. Entrees that people raved about were the scallops, a salmon special with mustard sauce. We all agreed we would return and it was a great new find.

    Came at lunchtime with friends and there was practically on one in the restaurant. Took forever to get food. Asked for coffee and waited for it, asked for a refill and got it shortly before leaving. The service was extremely bad and there seemed to be no excuse for it. Don't know if the problem was in the kitchen or the waiter or both. But, for a sandwich lunch, I will go to the Randolph Diner and while the ambience is certainly not as nice, I can't be sitting and eating lunch for two hours when the hold up is not getting the food. Came at 1 and didn't start eating until 2pm. How about some bread on the table if you have a problem in the kitchen which you must have as there was maybe one other couple in the restaurant and one point, no one but us. Always enjoyed dinner at your restaurant but not lunch.

    A hidden gem in a plaza on rt 10. We were pleasantly surprised. Menu is extensive; we had the lamb chops which were cooked just the way we requested. A great value for the price. Our server was very attentive. Really appreciated that the specials were printed out with prices! A great BYOB. Can't wait to return
