Steak
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.

We all had a really lovely experience. The food was excellent. We all had something different i.e steak, chicken, duck & lamb. Everybody was complimenting their dish. Service was excellent & ambiance was so relaxing. Staff were very professional. Would highly recommend this restaurant as it was a special occasion for us & it lived up to my expectations

Enjoyed a lunch here so went back again in afternoon 3.30pm. Menu was different, food was very poor. Was edible and well presented but not cooked fresh. Meat was heated and dry 🥲 was really disappointing.

Visited for my husband's birthday - the food and service were exceptional, and it was a perfect way to celebrate the day. It was especially great when the staff sang happy birthday to him, and the surrounding tables joined in! A memorable birthday for sure, thank you!

We had an amazing time in Cornstore yesterday, we ordered 2 starters and a side of mac and cheese each and we were absolutely stuffed afterwards, not a single complaint ! The food really was amazing and service was second to none, prompt, friendly and very attentive, our water jug was never empty. The cookie pan was also the highlight of my month so far. Thank you so much, can't wait to go back already

Our experience was ruined by waiters and waitresses wearing masks under their noses and under their chins whilst waiting to collect food. I could not believe the way that masks were continuously handled and then plates of food picked up. Not to mention talking in to chefs with masks around chins and breathing directly onto the area where food was to be placed. We were even served drinks by a waitress with a mask under her nose.
But for the fact that we rarely get out and doubted we'd get in anywhere else without a booking, we would have left. I felt incredibly uncomfortable as a result of the clear lack of protocol being adhered to. We most definitely will not be back.

Drinks were nice but food was not hot just warm for the cannelloni.

We were never checked on throughout and for the price the service level was not there. Felt quite rushed. They also seated us by a walkway and staff were walking past very fast every couple of seconds. For price was very unsatisfied. The pasta tubes were also undercooked.

The service was excellent our table did not have to ask for anything,we were checked on several times. We were seated down stairs as main floor was booked. Table setting and decor was tastefully done.Soft Lighting.Meal Starters and Steak was great as was dessert. Potatoe gratin was disappointing. Overall very happy with our dining experience.

Overcrowded even for normal times. Sat at a table squeezed into the passageway. Waiters rushing around. Food reheated. Not a restaurant, overcrowded pub food.

I wrote a review already on trip advisor, but I am taking the time to do a second one here, as we had a lovely time at the Cornstore. The ease of booking the welcome on our return, the complimentary prosecco, the fabulous food, the excellent service and the pornstar martinis, made our visit superb. If in doubt, definitely visit!

The stew looked delicious but it was over seasoned. It was so salty I couldn’t finish it. The prawn scampi was also over cooked and over seasoned. The service was very good and the waiter didn’t charge us for the stew. However The desserts were lovely.
