Extremely Pleased

Dined on March 19, 2016

I really enjoyed my dining experience. I celebrated my birthday with my birthday club and we ate early so it was really quiet. My food was excellent and my friends enjoyed theirs as well. Our server Marvin was fast and very attentive and I really appreciate the chief sending out the piece of cheese cake to celebrate my day.

Girls Night Out

Dined on February 26, 2016

I met up with girlfriends for a girls night out. We ordered off the happy hour menu, which included $2 off wine. Some of the girls ordered mixed drinks, which I think were $4, and the rest ordered wine. Our server was helpful in bringing samples for us so we could pick the perfect glass of wine. We also ordered a charcuterie platter, which was abundant with meat, cheese, fruit, and toasted baguettes. Although we did not order dinner, which was pricey, we did agree that it was a nice happy hour spot.

Looking for a romantic dinner, didn't get it.

Dined on February 20, 2016

I don't like to be negative, because everyone has an off day, but our experience was less than ideal. Our waiter, though well mannered seemed to be having an "off day". He sat us, took our drink orders then disappeared. He returned with our drinks, and attempted to move an empty glass and ended up breaking it. He left the broken glass on both the table and the floor for our entire stay. Then took the menus away. Realizing after a few minutes that he never took our food order, he came back and took our order. Before our food came out, he brought us bread, and when we asked for silverware he, loud enough for us to hear, snapped at the hostess for "sitting them at the only table without silverware". It was uncomfortable. The food was good, but for a a place with "piano bar" on the door and a grand piano in the building I fond it weird that there was no piano playing happening on a Friday night. Once we finished our food--our empty plates sat in front of us for over 15 minutes (mind you there are less than five occupied tables/bar stools in the entire place) waiting for our waiter to return. I hate to mention this, but he was also sweating profusely, and while I can appreciate a man who works hard, I don't necessarily was his hard work dripping into my fettuccine. It was just an overall awkward experience, and for the price and location we expected better. The food wasn't good enough to overlook the poor service or lack of ambiance.

Edible. Chef ignores patrons' food preparation requests. Staff is unprofessional and the ambiance unpredictable. Food presentation is good but food temperatures vary on the same plate. Call ahead to see if private party has booked seating because there is no banquet or private room. If you happen to be in a "private party" spot, you get booted out.

Brunch

Dined on August 23, 2015

We had brunch for my hubby's bday and had the most wonderful lemon blueberry pancakes. Food is always wonderful and the service is on point. Weekend evenings are the best when the owner hits the piano bar for great music and cozy atmosphere.

Dined on July 3, 2015

One of the BEST restaurants in Jacksonville. The food, service and atmosphere was impeccable. Try the crab cakes, they were delicious. There is a patio overlooking the pond and plenty of available dinning indoors. Awesome happy hour specials on drinks and they had live Jazz music at 8:30 pm. It was the perfect spot for a romantic evening. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a laid back romantic spot with excellent food.

Dined on May 10, 2015

We had Sunday brunch at corner Bistro. Not only did it take a half hour to get drinks and an hour and a half for food, but there was a fifteen minute lag between the first and last dishes arriving (for only 6 people). I ordered a salad with chicken that was so dry it was not edible. The rest of the food seemed good, but small portions.

Good food, rude staff.

Dined on May 10, 2015

My parents enjoyed the food. Unfortunately, I purchased a "Living Social" ticket for them to use, but it was not valid on Mothers day. That was my mistake. However, the host was very rude to them for even bringing it up. He was very loud and embarrassed them, saying that they did not accept coupons on holidays. If they understood courtesy, they would have simply explained that while today they could not honor it, any other day would be acceptable. And they could have done this quietly and respectfully.

Dined on May 10, 2015

The food was excellent, however the servers were not that attentive. The food service was very slow, we went for brunch and it was an hour and fifteen minutes before we had food.also the manager never stopped by our table to ask how the meal was going. Overall an average experience the great food was offset by the slow service.

Wife's Recommendation

Dined on March 28, 2015

My wife had been here using a Living Social coupon and loved it. She was right. I went on a Saturday night. I had the pan-seared sheepshead (fish) special with a dill sauce and risotto. It was freshly caught and both delicious and beautifully plated. The service was attentive.

Good Food & Service

Dined on February 17, 2015

I have been to Corner Bistro a few times, twice for lunch and once for dinner. I have been happy with all my visits. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a French bistro...casual elegance. The food is good, my Diablo Shrimp with pasta was nice. My friends Berry Salad with Salmon looked good and she said it was great. We were interested in wine with our lunch and the waiters suggestion was very good. The food is always prepared well and is tasty. I would recommend this place.

waste of time and money

vip
Dined on February 14, 2015

we arrived for our reservation at 6:30 and the restaurant was dead, six tables max. The waiter came over and offered us water and said another table had to be out by 8:00 so he would be back. Finally at 7:00 I flagged him down and told him we were on a timeline too and needed to order. Out comes the lobster bisque. Too salty to eat and zero lobster meat. Then came salad, it was delish, took 5 mins to get cracked pepper. Then came ny strip and lobster tail. The strip was seasoned but overall flavorless, my dog loved the other half though. The lobster tail was the smallest I've EVER had, about 1.5" long by less than .5" wide. Grilled chicken and risotto came out boiled chicken, not even grill marks, flavorless and with augratin potatoes...Then came dessert, it was fantastic. It took us almost two hours to eat, one cocktail each, and the servers were constantly breaking dishes in the dining room, banging things around, even singing and shouting table orders while entering the kitchen but while still in the dining room. Management should have put a muzzle on these servers in the dining room. AND THIS COST US $210. waster of time and money! We could have had an amazing dinner at the steakhouse next door but wanted to try some place new.. I read the mixed reviews and was on the cusp of going elsewhere. I hope this help you make the better decision! Beware!

Dined on February 7, 2015

Food was very good. Not mind blowing, but good portion sizes (almost too much) and seasoned well. It seems to be a later crowd type of place with the piano guy starting around 9. If you dine early, expect very few tables even though sound travels insanely loud. Biggest complaint we had was the service could be a little more polished. If you're spending $100 between 2 people on dinner, you don't expect interactions like you are at TGIFridays. I appreciate a casual approach but everyone in there was excessive. Talking about side work in front of people's tables, explaining my entree as coming with "veggies and mash", listening to a server practically yell about "going drinking bro!" To his customer/friend for 20 mins, food stained menus, etc. All in all it was a decent experience. They have a good wine list and large patio that will be nice in warmer weather. I doubt we'd ever make the drive out (20 mins) again for just dinner. Next time we'll go later and hit the bar atmosphere.

We love this neighborhood gem. Rarely crowded early but heats up as the night goes on. Great drinks and wine list. The food is incredible and never disappoints. Their scallops are the best I have had in the Jacksonville area and you can often get coupons on Living Social which makes this a win win for all. My only suggestion for the bar area is to get better bar stools and hooks for ladies purses. The stools had cracks in the leather and are a bit short for the bar. I definitely recommend trying this place out

By far the worst dining experience @ Corner Bistro

vip
Dined on January 23, 2015

I've dined here off & on since they opened & the food was horrible. Also, we sat near the kitchen & an awful smell came from there when servers walked in/out. Did not notice until half way through the meal b/c we were so busy talking. Would not have eaten that food had I noticed sooner. Lost my appetite at that point. Had the worst cut of steak (ribeye $32) ever. There was no seasoning. The cook had a hard time preparing at the requested temperature. My dining partner sent his back twice. I've had ithis steak here in the past & it was pretty good. Don't know what happened, but the quality has gone way down. The servers did their best to salvage our dinner but it just did not change the food unfortunately. The only thing that was good was the drinks from the bar. I don't forsee them staying open very long with this type of food & I am a foodie/blogger. THIS WAS JUST BAD & that is very unfortunate for this past neighborhood gem. I have recommended this place to many people in the past, I think I will withhold any further recommendations until there is a vast improvement.

Had a large table of 11, but even with two waiters the service was slow and they were not too attentive. Hard to find wait staff is never good. Good food, nice atmosphere, Had a big screen going to watch the game, and when it was done, they rolled up the screen and the pianist began to play. It was a little loud since we were at the closest table. The music was good but it was hard to carry on a conversation. Nice place, if you want an upscale sports bar with decent food. I am not sure if we will try again.

Poor first impression due to disappointing service

Dined on December 13, 2014

This is a cozy, friendly place conveniently within walking distance from our hotel. It started out friendly and pleasant, but our waiter seemed to have a very poor sense of timing. It took quite a while to give our wine order, and it went downhill from there. First course-- mussels were good, but begged for some bread to dip into the tasty broth. Could not get our waiter to appear until we were almost finished when we caught his attention and asked for bread; then waited way too long as the broth got cold; waiter finally brought the bread, apologizing that he had to wait for it to come out of the oven. Spinach salad was excellent; then an abnormally long wait until the filet mignon oscar arrived- it was a special with crab topping-- but the crab seemed to be more of a puree. Filet was fine. Again it took forever to get refills for water which we had to hold up our glasses to get attention, as well as to get the check. We felt worn out and disappointed after this experience. It does seem to be a popular place and we'll give it another try with a different waiter next time we're in the area.

Blackened surf and turf is worthy of five stars; the pork chops are a huge disappointment, I don't recommend them. Our service could've been better, waiter was slow and kind of a smart aleck. Nice wine list. Go somewhere else for dessert, they have only three items on their list, we tried the chocolate cake and it was just so-so. It wasn't busy on the Tuesday night we were there but a couple of the groups were loud, so that tended to make quiet conversation impossible at times. Overall it wasn't a bad dining experience, so we'll go again and see what happens.

Not a very good first impression

Dined on October 10, 2014

This was my first visit. I went with a few ladies who are part of a local social group. One of the ladies stated the Calamari tasted "rubbery". The chips I received with my salsa were burned...literally. A few of our checks were incorrect including mine. The waiter's first response was, "Well I have to charge someone because our drinks are made to order." Wow, he really tried to charge me for 2 drinks when I only ordered 1. He finally corrected my ticket but not before saying he couldn't. I believe he assumed I'd say, "Don't worry about it." Needless to say, I'm just glad I paid cash; while others were apprehensive about giving him their credit cards.
