Went with my wife. We had the pickled oysters, mackerel pate, gurand, turbot, salmon pastrami and crab rarebit. Utterly phenomenal. Best meal in London. Arguably best meal over any we have had in the States. Bravo.
Really amazing food which is the main thing!
Its an unlikely place for a restaurant but as soon as you walk through the door you are transported somewhere else.
Great staff, cool layout and considering how good it is excellent value (£48 each for the 6 course taster menu).
The kitchen is open plan so you can see Tom Brown doing his thing while you wait!
The pickled gurnard dish especially was a revelation.
All in all excellent.
We were thrilled with everything we ordered and the staff were fantastic.
Incredible meal if you like Fish. Highly recommend the Oysters, John Dory with Chicken butter sauce and the mackerel pate. Definitely making the trip over to hackney wick for it.
This place is honestly phenomenal. The service and the food are both unassuming, but exceptionally thought through...
Cornerstone is fantastic. The food is absolutely divine, the wine menu small but the perfect match to the food. Service is friendly, attentive and very quick. It's good value and so totally worth it.
Chef Tom Brown creates fantastic dishes, beautifully presented.
This is next level stuff and I can't wait to go back!
We had a wonderful anniversary and birthday meal at Cornerstone. From start to finish the experience was amazing.
The fish cookery and good was some of the best we’ve ever had. It shows they cook this day in and day out.
We will most certainly be coming back. Tom Brown has the reputation of a great chef and he and his team certainly delivered that and more.
Popped in for lunch as we were nearby & had heard so many great things about it.
Food was amazing - could not fault it .
Will definitely be back!
We followed Toms journey on great British menu and to eat at his own restaurant was incredible! The food was stunning! We will be returning to eat more of his plates. Thank you for having us.
Delicious meal to celebrate a birthday with absolutely brilliant service from all staff members. Enjoyed all the dishes except one which was overly salty. One comment would be to get a proper coffee machine with hot milk as a shame not able to have a coffee at the end of the evening - cappuccino / macchiato with cold milk doesnt really cut it!
Everything else was superb.
Seafood at its finest. Every dish was perfectly balanced, satisfying, and beautifully refined. The crab crumpet is an absolute must!
Cornerstone is top level fish cookery. Wonderful food and service without the pomp and stuffiness of other restaurants that offer that kind of quality. I highly recommend, I'm still thinking about the John Dory a few days after our visit.
Excellent concept and delicious food. Service a bit over intensive at times though staff very pleasant. These days most people don’t want or expect wine to be poured for you. Free tap water is normal and to have a space for gratuity after added service is not on these days.
One of our best dining experiences ever!! Sit at the bar to get involved in all the action.
Cornerstone was reccomend to me by a work colleague. He was not wrong about it. The food was amazing and the service was very friendly as well. I would go again!
We went on a quiet Thursday lunchtime, the restaurant was surprisingly quiet. A major food critic sat behind us and one other table. It doesn’t disappoint, intelligent, balanced, beautiful dishes.
A very content chef.
We went to Cornerstone on a Wednesday evening and had the Chef’s choice menu. Everything was fantastic. The food, the service, the wine (although quite pricey!) and the atmosphere. We would highly recommend this place!
We booked this a long time in advance and were not disappointed. The food was fabulous, every course delicious, especially the brill tartare and the John Dory in roast chicken butter sauce was sublime. Desserts gorgeous too: now a convert to ban office. Like the kitchen in the middle of the restaurant - felt very relaxed. It’s not cheap but worth it!!!!
Brilliant food from one of the up and coming stars of the Industry
All the dishes were delicious. Tried some fish that I had never had before. Really lovely experience.
Absolutely fantastic meal. I had been meaning to go since opening and it really did not disappoint. The mackerel pate and crab crumpet were sublime, along with everything else. Could not fault a single thing. Booking to return ASAP to complete the menu!
Excellent meal, from all points of view.
I will definitely recommend Cornerstone to all foodies.
Really enjoyed most dishes but found portions for a one or two plates very small ie monkfish We esp like the loved the mackerel pate, the pavlova was more of a merengue as there was no fluffy centre, rhubarb could have been sharper and would have liked more ginger but that's just my taste as I dont have a sweet tooth.
Our waiters were lovely or sparkling was a great choice. The addition of bday plate was appreciated and the fudge was lovely.
Excellently executed dishes with great overall vision. Would highly recommend
Incredible seafood, the combinations are just genius. Kitchen is very calm and controlled. Would definitely revisit and recommend.
We’ve been planning to go to cornerstone for a while and the meal was so worth the wait. Wonderful on every level
We sat at the counter, we enjoyed the whole experience
This was my third visit to what’s fast becoming my favourite restraint in London. The food is incredible - you need to like fish which I do and open to trying things. I have the taster menu which offers a range of dishes all exquisitely prepared. The service was first rate and I absolutely love the ambience - the kitchen is centre stage creating a real theatrical feel
Delicious, eclectic fish menu, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back.
The food was the best I have tasted for years. Every dish we ordered was as good as the next. It is relatively expensive but you get what you pay for.
Beautiful food - excellent service and wonderful ambiance. An excellent experience provided by an excellent chef. Only thing, wine was a bit pricey.
We had an incredible dinning experience at Cornerstone. The food was very special and delicious, and the staff was super friendly and helpful providing recommendations. Beware, this is a pricey restaurant as portions are small but if you love fish and seafood, it is totally worth it.
Amazing food, unintrustive sincere service. Can't wait to go back!
Amazing food and service-the Cured Gurnard and the Mackerel Pate were definitely a highlight (along with a taster of Cuttlefish Chorizo which was stunning), but couldn’t fault any of the dishes, everything was outstanding. Excellent value for money and staff were lovely. Definitely one of the best meals I have ever had. Very much looking forward to going back again soon.
LOVED this place - food delicious, really relaxed atmosphere. We’ll definitely go back!
Incredible food - we ran out of superlatives to describe each of the chef's selection that arrived.
Nice service. Quiet atmosphere. I prefer a little more buzz but it was a Weds lunchtime so not complaining. Highly recommend.
outstanding service, professional yet relaxed. fabulous interior. and the food is incredible. what a gem!
Amazing food and service! We had a really great evening here and will definitely go back to try the things we didn't get this time. The only slight negative comment I have is the lack of carbs on the menu, most dishes don't come with any and there isn't anything you else you can order, apart from bread. I was trying not to but I couldn't help feeling a little hungry when leaving, despite spending well over £200. Overall though, the food showed real skill and care as well as tasting fantastic.
This place had the best food I've had in London. It's really hard to find good quality, fresh seafood but this ticked all those boxes. We had the tasting menu which was fantastic, and very reasonably priced. The service was also amazing. We will definitely be going back, as soon as we can get another reservation!
Fantastic all round experience.... One of the best evenings I've had in a long time.... Excited to go again!
