A word from Cornstore, Limerick
Owing to the success of the Cornstore Wine Bar & Restaurant Cork, a sister restaurant was opened in Limerick in November 2008, situated on the newly refurbished and pedestrianised street, Thomas Street.
The concepts boasts 3 floors offering a lively, buzzy, Manhattan style surrounding, including private dining and contemporary heated smoking area. The interior is mirrored to match the stylish elegance of its sister restaurant in Cork with intricate floor tiling, pewter style bar, cosy booths and intimate lighting.
Like Cork, the menu specialises in premium steaks and quality seafood, an extensive drinks list with coktails, new world beers and a vast wine list. 20 pouring glasses are also available by the glass.
Both Coenstore buildings were selected because of their historic presence and the belief that the old and new can be successfully combined to create an old style feel with a modern ambience.

    Arrived at restaurant, greeted by friendly staff and seated straight away. We are recently married and as one of our wedding gifts was a voucher for the cornstore which we were thrilled about however to say we were disappointed is an understatement, my husband ordered the spicy beef sour taste from the sauce and as a main he ordered the pork belly the food portions were pretentious without a side and was not told this when ordering ( a bit silly), I had the goats cheese which was good and prawn pil pil not that impressed. I expected so much from this restaurant and it did not meet our expectations. I feel is if we wasted our voucher on this evening did we just get a bad night or something

    I had dinner with a friend and we were very pleased with everything. We had a drink there in the afternoon and it was very relaxing. Dinner was booked for 8.30pm and we found the restaurant had a great atmosphere even though a bit noisy!! The staff were very attentive and the food delicious. Would love to go back and would highly recommend it to anyone.

    We went to the Cornstore for a family celebration following my son's graduation. This restaurant has a lovely ambience - not too formal - but at the same time you feel like you are in a really nice relaxed place. The service we received was excellent and the waitress who took our orders gave us excellent advice when choosing from the menu. All of the starters were excellent but be aware that if you order the bread and dips, you get a whole loaf of bread which is enough for 4 people not just one. I found the pork belly to be a bit dry but everyone else was happy with their main courses. The creme brulee was really good but I found the chocolate cake a bit heavy. Overall we were happy with the experience and I would definitely go again

    I could n't recommend the Cornstore, five of us were out for a special occassion and were looking forward to a pleasant evening with good quality food. That was not to be, the food was poor , un imaginiative a piece of steak spoon of mash, oh almost forgot THE mushroom four diners ordered steaks we were all given the wrong ones, so those who ordered well done steaks got the rare ones and had blood all over the plate, and the others had to grapple with a tough dry piece of meat. The was no break between courses one plate was taken up the other one was put down. We got our coffee before desert, the speed at which we were given our food was ridiculous. Certainly not a pleasant night and I would not recommed it to anyone.

    My wife and I recently visited th Cornstore for dinner. The food was very good but we felt that the tables were very close together which makes it difficult to enjoy a personal conversation without the neighbouring table listening in. We were also seated right at the back by the window so endured two flies trying to escape for freedom for the entire evening which is not pleasant when eating food. My advice is book one of the booths near the bar if you want privacy. On a positive note, the service was exceptional and the food was very good with my steak in particular well seasoned and cooked exactly to my request.

    Corn store limerick is one of my favorites, beautiful decor and wonderful staff. You feel comfortable in suit or denims. Their menu is full but not overpowering with great care evident with produce selection, standard dishes are consistently good however more thought and attention needs to go into some of their specials board dishes with regard to diner suitability and cooking method and timings. Drinks choice is vast from wines and spirits to cocktails with helpful staff on hand to assist selection. Overall an excellent restaurant which I would highly recommend, you will no doubt see me there again and again and again.

    Loved the selection of food, really enjoyed what we ordered, my friend particularly liked the duck salad....all washed own with some nice wines. The waitresses were lovely, everyone who came to our table was friendly, their knowledge of the food being served was as you'd expect. Our only issue was with the service......all of our courses were served too fast, we sat down at 7pm and had all 3 courses served by 8.10pm......it wasn't as if we had to vacate the table, we then sat for another hour finishing our wine.....it would have been five stars otherwise.

    Only let down was that the bill was incorrect. Food was perfectly cooked and tasted terrific. The service showed attention to detail. An example when a waiter came from behind the counter to open a door for a lady in our party. Good knowledge of the food and wines from the staff. Music was a bit off and did'nt sit well with the ambiance of the venue.

Helen at the bar makes the most amazing cocktails, the food was delicious, we had a really great evening. I would definitely go back if I'm ever in Limerick again.

    I've been here a few times and always enjoyed it, but this weekend was particularly great. My partner and I went there to celebrate our engagement, so we were looking for something special and the staff delivered. They were very friendly and attentive and a few stopped by during the evening to congratulate us, all without getting too intrusive. We were made to feel really special. The steak we both had was fantastic, as usual, and we finished off the evening with some amazing cocktails. Can't recommend this place enough - go for the steak, and finish it off with a cocktail, you won't regret it

    Looked on internet for a good place to eat on the friday of our arrival in Limerick and found the Cornstore, a highly recommended restaurant near our hotel. Braved the unseasonal heavy rain to make it to the warm welcome at the Cornerstore. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was really quite outstanding. Most highly rated, my wife and I had the steak from the 3 course set evening menu and it was cooked to perfection. All for E25 each! Service was quite impeccable. Interestingly we were asked by a senior staff member if we would mind him showing a new employee how to serve wine. We agreed readily and thoroughly commend the restaurant for providing real opportunities for staff training. And Ulster won!

The table beside us was up on top of us and we could all hear each others conversations. I was given a wrong starter, My partner had finished his before mine arrived. That said, the staff were very apologetic. The staff are very nice,
