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 consists of premium steaks and quality seafood, an extensive drinks list with cocktails, new world beers and a vast wine list.
Both Cornstore 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 ambiance.

But the staff really made the night because it's hard to come across good waiting staff these days since we emerged from lockdowns!

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday evening. House wine didn’t disappoint. Staff so professional and attentive. 10 out of 10.

With Covid it’s been a couple of years and I won’t be back. The food is still excellent and the staff are great, but it’s become a fast moving food factory, priority is clearly to maximise number of covers at the expense of the customer experience When we booked we weren’t told we had a time limit and when we arrived we were told we could have the table for as long as we wanted. But we were rushed all the way through. Our starters arrived with our aperitif, the main course arrived within a minute or two of clearing off the starters, we were pushed re dessert and the bill arrived before we were finished fter 1 hour 59 minutes, so clearly there was a 2 hour limit. I’m from Dublin, so am used to 2 hour table limits, but if you are spending €80 to €100 a head on an expensive meal there is a balance between good service and been treated like cattle on a conveyor belt. Great food, good staff, but a really frustrating and bad customer experience

Super menu with excellent quality ingredients and clearly identifiable allergen info. Beautiful evening for a date or celebration. Only negative was I didn’t get the floor plan. there were a lot of tables in heavy traffic areas. We were at the end of one area. Also absolute minimum distance between table before your listening to others dinner conversation. If your someone that needs room I suggest you try and request a booth
