The Waiter was terrible. Could hardly speak English. Never checked back with us. Had to wait for the check quite a while

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.

We like to dine here once a week and always enjoy the friendly service and delicious food. The specials add to the already great menu offerings and keeps us from getting bored with the menu since we go often.

I have brought friends n family several times and always wonderful meals but I was there with family Sunday, October 11, And we were so disappointed. First all 4 meals arrived together but the last meal arrived over 15 minutes later. No one enjoyed their meal and each person left more then half on their plate. I have reservations with guests this Friday, October 16- so will give it one more try. It was always my first choice...

We had a very good time dining al fresco at The Corner Bistro. Food and service both very good. Try the sausage special appetizer. The fettuccine carbonara and tilapia piccata were very good - huge portion on the tilapia including potatoes and spinach.

Nice, well-spaced tables outside. The space heater helped some but it did feel a bit chilly. Inside dining available and the tables seemed very widely spaced. The dining area is large. So if you're ready for indoor this is an option. We're still doing al fresco.
