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.

Visiting Ireland for the first time and stayed near Limerick so we decided to drive into town for some aged Irish beef. I had read some good reviews for The Cornstore and it did not disappoint! Our steaks were delicious, perfectly cooked. The sides were delicious also. I would definitely recommend it if you are traveling near Limerick!

Excellent menu. Food was great. Service was lacking - had a waitress who seemed very inexperienced. It was a disappointment. Her peers stepped in to save the day and it was much appreciated, but overall our experience was dampened.

My family and I celebrated a graduation here recently. I was a little disappointed with the set menu available as I wasn’t aware of this when making the online booking and had based my decision on their main lunch menu which offered a lot more choice and value for money. However the food served was nice - if a little expensive for what amounted to chicken curry and chicken supreme. I’ve eaten here before so that’s possibly why I was a little underwhelmed as previous visits have been more memorable.

The steak was great, Joel, our waiter, was wonderful, attentive and helpful. Before 7, you can get the three-course for cheaper. Would definitely go back again!

Every time I eat at the Cornstore, I'm glad I came back. Everything from their steaks to their seafood is always spot on delicious and served at the proper temperature. Not a big fan of the smashy peas, but it's Ireland!

Loved our meal in cornstone - the chicken wings are a must try and the quality of the steak was excellent.
My partner had a fresh tomato salad to start which she loved and a fish dish that was light and full of flavor. It’s a lively venue which we wanted - everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves so not for a quiet night!

Top notch again for lunch at cornStore on limerick. My friend and I had our usual of stir fry noodles with chicken and side order of fries.

Taste just gets better and better with this dish. Have to compliment chef on firstly having this dish on the menu. Long may it stay on the menus at cornStore limerick.

The staff at cornStore limerick very friendly and they getting to know me and my friend and what we like.

Must try another dish someday but for now the stir fry noodles with chicken are divine. Thanks cornStore in limerick

Third visit to Cornstore and it just seems to get better. Reserved through opentable and received prompt confirmation and a timely reminder as well. Food was exceptional once again, as was the service.
Very busy with a great Saturday night buzz but that's expected I suppose. Hope to return again soon.

Comida de gran calidad. Servicio excelente. Llegamos media hora antes de la reserva y no hubo ningún problema en asignarnos una mesa.
La preparación de los platos es muy buena y la experiencia culinaria fue muy buena.

Had lunch again with friend in cornStore limerick. We always go for the stir fry noodles with chicken and side order of fries/chips. What can I say and also speak for my friend. It's absolutely mouth watering. The the noodles and chicken with vegetables in scheawan sauce. It's to die for.

We be back again in couple more weeks. I do hope they never take off the stir fry from the menu.

First impressions, outside area is scruffy with no ashtrays so cigarette buts on the ground. Greeted by friendly staff. Bar area is comfortable and looks nice. Got menus which were paper, soiled with food and looked like they had been stored in someone’s pocket.
Got drinks at the Bar. Pinot and a pale ale. The Pinot was nice but cheeky at €8 a glass. Beer was bottled and came with a glass that was roasting hot fresh out of the dishwasher. Asked for glass to be replaced and received a tepid Guinness glass. No head when the beer was poured indicating the detergent had not been properly rinsed from the glass.
Seated upstairs which is a beautiful room. Again staff were friendly and attentive.
Jug of water and two glasses which was never replenished.
Started with crusty flatbread with goats cheese and carmalised onion, was over cooked greasy and tasteless.
Main courses
1
Cornstore aged beef burger. €19.50
Dried out, tasteless inedible. truffle mayo was sour and also inedible.Chips were soggy.
2
Cornstore Red Curry €18
Spicy not much flavor. Dumplings were more like pre made gnocchi. Flat bread was again burnt, greasy and tasteless.
Staff noticed that both mains had been barely touched and asked if everything was ok. After being told we were unhappy staff spoke with management who comped a round of drinks and the sides.
We decided to stay for desert.
Sticky toffee pudding and apple crumble. Both were tasty and very large portions.
Finally the bathrooms, only one male and one female toilet upstairs and adjacent to the kitchen. The hallway between the kitchen and toilets was filthy, dirty sticky carpet with a dustpan overflowing with rubbish propped against the wall. It was less then two meters from the kitchen door to the toilet door. The toilets were small, scruffy and not very clean.

Overall very poor and overpriced. Go somewhere else
