    The venue was very warm and stuffy. The food was awful, one meal we found a hair in, the second meal the steak was very over cooked when asked for medium rare, so sent this back which still come out over cooked. The only positive I could say is how the manager dealt with us and the situation plus the cocktails were good 👌🏻

    Strangely the sides turned up before the main but were under cooked! The mains were also under the asked cooking so don’t order steak!! Definitely don’t recommend this restaurant and given prices would hope it closes soon.

    Ambiance and service were good. The prawns pil pil appetizer was outstanding. The ribeye steak was ok. The sirloin steak was very gamey. It was our first steak in Ireland so perhaps that’s the general quality of the steaks when compared to US prime steaks. The scalloped potatoes accompanying the steaks were excellent. I’d recommend the place but don’t get steaks.

    I’m so disappointed. Once we sat, there are menus on the table. I read them, made my mind to order surf and turf, and I choose mussels as starter. About to order, they tell me they are sorry, it’s the wrong menu. Here is the correct menu. I am so disappointed. Anyways, I order sirloin steak from the new menu, the steak comes with no seasoning. It doesn’t taste anything. The worst steak I ever had. Not even salt. Nothing. I couldn’t finish it neither my partner. It’s an awful experience. I was so looking forward to this. So so so disappointed.

    It was a lovely night out. The only thing is that we felt rushed several times when waiters came to ask us about 10 times if we had finished even though it could be seen that we were still eating. Also had my beer bottle grabbed several times by waitress to see if it was empty, which in times of covid, I would wish to not happen…

    Always excellent food and customer service including a warm welcome on arrival. We always enjoy our experience at the Cornstore in Cork. Unfortunately this time our waiter dropped one meal when serving. I appreciate accidents happen but there was a long wait for a replacement meal, everyone else had finished there meals on the table by the time it arrived. Also the coffee was awful. I left a full cup (cappuccino) I couldn't drink it.

    Good appetizers, but several were sold out by our arrival at 8:30pm. Also wine options were limited. We went with the prefix menus. For the price, was a fair meal.
