Corner Cafe - Priority Seating Ratings and Reviews
Busy I understand, but the service here was inexcusable. After long wait even with an open table reservation, long wait to be greeted at table, long wait for coffee, served food without silverware, order delivered with item I requested to not have, coffee only refilled once, never asked how it was.
I have been going to Corner Cafe for years. Food is excellent. BUT they need to replace their air conditioning units. I recently left there feeling ill because it was so hot in the restaurant. We brought the heat to our waiter's attention several times during the meal, but nothing was done. This is Atlanta and hot weather is obviously going to continue. Failure to fix the air conditioning problem is a serious mistake. I will not be returning until they do. Unless you want to get overheated and ill while eating there, I suggest you go elsewhere to eat.
Went to Atlanta for wedding and had a few hours to discover a good brunch spot. Corner Cafe did not disappoint. We had chicken and waffles, crab cake eggs benedict and signature omelette of the day with crab meat, asparagus and tomatoes, all were fabulous. Server was awesome in recommending entrees and brunch libations. Would go again next time in Atlanta.
Good food and good service. We had a lamb sandwich (we get this normally) and salmon benedict. I found the lamb a bit bland but my mom likes it that way so that was a 50/50 for the table. The benedict was nice. Not stingy w/the salmon but I would say it was on a potato pancake and not a blini. The sever didn't bring my mom a new tea bag after refilling her hot water (the original one barely had any color to it in the first place and could not be reused) which was a bummer. He mentioned that he would come back with one but never did.
Always an outstanding breakfast! It's our go-to eggs benedict for breakfast place. Also tried the Belgian waffle this time and it was light, fluffy and delicious. You really can't go wrong here if you want an excellent breakfast, even it's a bit on the pricey side.
Used priority seating and was a little put off when a walk-in was seated ahead of us. The waitress was attentive and the food was good, not exceptionally great, but solidly good. I would come again if I was in the area and I wanted a different take on brunch.
It took 20 minutes for someone to come to my table. The hostess finally noticed I had no beverage and asked what I'd like. After that, the waitress came to my table to drop off a plate of muffins, but would not speak to me or make eye contact. When my friends arrived she remained rude. She only filled their beverages unless I went out of my way to grab her attention to fill mine.
My dish was accompanied with a hollandaise sauce that did not resemble such. Thick, heavy, and an aftertaste of lemons that lasted for hours.
I've always had a great experience here, but after this meal, I will not go out of my way to come back.
This place was horrible. The priority seating idea is pointless. We waited an hour for a table and then once seat we waited another hour for our food that never came. We ended up walking out after two hours of waiting. I spoke to the manager and advised her of the situation and she could careless. I had my 15 month old child with us at the restaurant to celebrate Mother's Day and we never got to enjoy our brunch. Not sorry to say I will NEVER return to this restaurant and I don't recommend it. I did not get to try the food but I was shocked by the lack of empathy and the unorganized seating process. They should really understand other people's time is valuable also and they ruined a moment we can never get back. Not cool.
I'm sorry to say that we had a really poor experience in our first time at Corner Cafe.
1.) I am in a wheelchair. We arrived to find no handicap parking or valet parking. Getting in to the restaurant was difficult as it was so crowded.
2.) We had a 1pm reservation and still had to wait an extra 40 minutes. The restaurant was so crowded and noisy that we almost left. However, we had a wonderful hostess by the name of Keisha who was so kind to us, staying in touch about time. When she got us to a table, it was in a slightly quieter part of the restaurant. Our server, Freddie, was very kind and attentive.
3.) Our meal was very mediocre. The coffee was like water. Ken ordered a cappuccino that was both weak and flat. We both ordered crepes, Ken the strawberry and the apple pecan for me. The crepes were very thick and so big it was overwhelming.
I felt bad about writing this review. I've never written a bad review. The staff there was very kind. We won't be returning.
I would NEVER dine at a restaurant that has Priority Seating versus traditional reservations again. I made a reservation for Mother's Day and it was a disaster-Its still took us over an hour to be seated-the hostess and manager kept saying we were next to be seated but that did not happen. By the time we were seated my wife was so upset she didn't really enjoy her meal. Again I would NEVER do priority seating again because it only guarantee the wait time is cut in half which is way too vague.
I've been a frequent visitor to Corner Cafe and was pleased to take my 3 favorite Moms there for Mother's Day. Unfortunately it was a horrible experience. We waited over an hour to be seated. When we got to our table, our server made it clear that the service would be slow. When we got our food, it was cold. At least the host apologized for the miserable experience. I may go back, but it will not be soon. Thank goodness we had good company. It was the only positive part of the meal.
Corner cafe does not honor the priority seating. They kept us waiting 45 min for the table and another 20 min for the food. Corner cafe does not apologize or offer anything to compensate for the waiting. They just justify themselves by saying the wait is longer for walk-ins, which cannot be an excuse and doesn't justify their low level of service and customer care. I do t recommend this place. Go elsewhere for brunch, to a place that don't take reservations, so you know what to expect from the beginning. Worst experience ever at Corner cafe.
The Sunday brunch on Mother's day was very good. Service was excellent. Seating was fine, however, it is a noisy place. There was nothing in the décor that lent itself to absorbing the noise. As a family friendly place, one should expect a high volume of sound but it was difficult to hear my dining companions or the waitress at times.
First time there. Food and drinks were VERY good. I would not reorder the French toast. It was not what I expected. Not prepared like any I have ever eaten. Did not like the texture. Tasted fine, just didn't care for the prep. Everything else was really good.
Decor is a bit "tired" and could use some love. I assume they stay so busy they don't want to close to redecorate.
Would definitely return.
