                                                        One of the best days of my life! Food was literally orgasmic. We were seated at the best spot by Mr.Mustachio, ordered prawns pil pil, steaks and cookie pan. Cocktails were top notch, especially pornstar martini (Italian kiss)!! Staff is very kind and welcoming, our waitress Yatharth was legendary. I will be back for sure..thanks guys Regards, Vodle Bonde

                                                        Not a fan of the menu updates. Order bread starter and pasta main. Far too much olives.

                                                        Steaks were beautiful and tender. I had the salt and pepper scampi with the best mashed potato, I could have eaten the broccolini on it’s own. My aunt had the hake and she said it was beautiful.

                                                        Food was very poor . Steak was cooked wrong , asked for medium to well done and it was rear. Very chewy, poor cut of meat. Chicken wing starter was cold . Dessert and wine was good. My partner found meat in her vegetarian bean dish and it was only lukewarm. Her starter and dessert were good. CompRed to other occasions we have been there we were very disappointed especially given the price of the food also. Will not be going back there in a rush again after that experience

                                                        The staff were wonderful and welcoming from the moment we got in the door. Complimentary Prosecco for our mother on her birthday and then closed the evening out with a celebratory birthday desert and sang Happy Birthday. Had a fantastic night and highly recommend. Will be going back for birthdays to come as a tradition. They made the evening so memorable. Food was also delicious and resonantly priced.

                                                        The Ribeye steak was very fatty. The posset was very bitter The cheesecake and the prawns were outstanding.

                                                        This place used to be great. Really disappointed with our meal yesterday. Starters were nice and came out quickly. Mains very overpriced and not great to be honest. The young lad who served us was very nice though. Wouldn’t be in a rush to return.

                                                        My wife's cannelloni was cold on the inside and inedible. Server was good and didn't charge us for it. My food was just OK. Not a great 36th birthday for my wife. Truffle mac and cheese side was good. Velvet Picante cocktail tasted different to previous visit.

                                                        This place is by far my favourite in Cork city. And after this time everything was perfect but I discover the new desert pan cookie that was just incredible. A place to stop for any reason. The staff are so welcoming and always helpful. Recommend this place to anyone love good food and good time

                                                        Loved our meal here. Drinks menu is fantastic, great selection of everything. Food menu also fantastic, second time for us ordering the chateaubriand and it was even better then the first time we had it. Sadly we didn't have enough room for dessert. Service was excellent, our waitress was really attentive. Really enjoyed our time here and can't wait to book in again.

                                                        From start to finish it was a great experience. Our server was lovely very friendly. The food was great I had one of the steak specials….it was divine. My friend had the fish with beetroot garnish and was very happy. To finish we shared a cookie pan….omg! Something else, just couldn’t finish it all.

                                                        I treated 5 colleagues to dinner. €500 was our bill. Steak was fabulous. Chips were delicious, fish was outstanding. Deserts were very nice. Service could not have been better. I had the Chicken and Duck parfoit for starters, it was terrible. I couldn't eat it. Garlic butter wasn't great, onion ring wasn't great. My colleague had the Rump of lamb and it was just a few slices, very tough and poor to be served to someone for that price. I also got the cheeseboard and it was tasteless, very poor. Overall I was very disappointed with the Cornstore. 3 of my colleagues were very impressed.

                                                        We found the service the slow and the waiter was not well informed on the menu or processes. For example we asked to taste some of the house wine before ordering but we were told you had to order the glass and no tasters were offered, never known this for bottles that are offered by the glass?? Food was decent but feel it was highly over priced.

                                                        Food was only fair which was a little disappointing, I hadn't eaten there for a while but previously found it exceptional and was really looking forward to a meal there but left feeling let down.

                                                        I’ve eaten here before and it was fine. This time the starters for both of us were tasteless. I asked for medium to well done steak and both mine and my wife’s came out dried and burnt. I sent mine back and the second one was no better. Refused to pay as it was absolutely awful. The waiter was fine though. I asked to see the manager but no one came. Never again

                                                        Great place to eat....excellent service. First floor seating is the area to opt for....feels like eating ina trendy warehouse type location.
