The Corson Building is a home, a restaurant, and a community. It is built on a foundation of relationships with our community of friends and teachers, farmers, importers and foragers, wine makers, fishermen, builders, artists, and activists. Together we work to celebrate food and the daily nourishment it provides.

We are open for dinner Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. On Thursday and Friday nights we offer a small, intimate a la carte menu and take reservations between 6:00pm and 9:30pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, we host single seating, prix fixe, family style feasts. Our Saturday night dinners begin at 6:30pm at a cost of $100 per person for dinner with optional, $50 a person wine pairings. Our Sunday dinners begin at 6:00pm and are $80 per person including wine(all pricing is before tax and gratuity).

Please check the calendar on our website for information on our bi-weekly Thursday themed dinners and periodic Sunday brunches.

Thank You!

Friends had been telling us to eat here for years now, and we finally took their advice! The food is fantastic and interesting, the staff is extremely friendly and relaxed, and it's fun to eat at the same table as others!

This is destination dining == worth a journey. The only other restaurant I know in the United States with such consistently interesting and delicious food is Chez Panisse.

I booked us about 2 months in advanced for our anniversary dinner, not knowing it was a social seating arrangement. Thought I was a little nervous when I found out, we ended up having a fantastic time. The hosts were really good about putting us near other couples and not in a larger group. We had so much good conversation. And then there's the food... With a good 15 minute introduction on what you'll be eating for the night, and then about 2 hours of amazing food coming your way, the price you pay is well worth the experience. You should appreciate food if you're going here, and I don't mean strange foods or the like. Just well cooked, well flavored, meticulously picked ingredients, with a comfortable social aspect. They called me the night before and asked if anyone was vegetarian and when they brought me out my delicious meat dishes, they also brought out the same thing but in a veg dish for my girlfriend. Definitely will go here again when I find the right occasion.

The Corson Building was quite the experience. The food was exquisite - but rather than belabor the point in waxing poetic on the inimitable culinary delights, I want to highlight a couple of unexpected gains from the evening:
1. Since our party spent no time looking over menu offerings (the dinner is prix fixe) we were able to enjoy time with our friends sans interruptions or ancillary banter.
2. The dinner lasts ~3 hrs - again, you can focus on the company.
3. Invariably, you will eat things you never would order if left to your own devices. Since the plates were each scrumptious, this is another big positive for the Corson Building.

In sum, great for special occasions. Fantastic, unique food with a fun, lively atmosphere (assuming you're not dining with dullards).
