The way it should be done!

Staff told us they were filled with reservations but if we could eat within 1 1/2 hours they could fit us in. We had an excellent meal for 4 without feeling rushed or like we were putting the staff out in any way. Meal was excellent with large portions! Great service! Cute little venue (a old... read more

Visited today with a friend for lunch, we both had the special of the day. Grilled Sweet Chili Chicken BLT wrap with a side (looked like a regular size) Cornerstone Salad. The wrap was great, but the salad was incredible with sugared walnuts, strawberries, feta cheese, red onions and a mixed leaf lettuce, and a balsamic vinegar dressing.......not only a... More

Nothing went right at this restaurant. From the moment we walked in it was bad. I'll just list them: 1. We had to wait for THREE tables to be cleaned before they would seat us. 2. Waited a while before they would even take our drink orders. We ordered our drinks and our meal at the same time just it... More

Have always enjoyed the atmosphere at the Cornerstone. Beautiful building and neat layout indoors (although maybe not the most accessible to someone with a walker or wheelchair). Love the salads whenever I go.

had their menu & lunch.. & both were unbelievable. They have fresh bread everyday, the food tastes sooo so good, and they serve good portions too. Customer service was alright. Overall.. if you're in Guelph, you need to eat here.

I had an excellent home made soup and beef dip lunch that was excellent. The restaurant is a remodelled historic bank at a prime location. It apparently gets live entertainment (was there at lunch on a Monday (sad face)). The waitress was very friendly, knowledgeable and went out of her way to get us the best possible combination/price without being... More

Came for a birthday party with 45 people and very impressed. Waitress was right on with all of our orders even ones with substitutes. I had the Almond Crusted Chicken and WOW. Great tasting and presentation perfect. Their house salad had a great tang and the meal was a perfect amount. Not a rush through quick meal place and for... More

I have been to the Corner Stone several times and have never been disappointed. Their specials are excellent and I absolutely love the Corner Stone salad.

We had a great Valentines Diner. It started with brushetta, which was delicious. Then the garden delicious, maybe a couple too many onions for Valentines Day. The main course we both chose was the dill salmon. Large portion was delicious. The mixed vegetables were simple but amazing. My better half had rice and I the yam fries. There wasn't enough...

I came for lunch with my friends over the holidays. Our total time took two hours, and the food was most definitely sub par. I had a quesadilla, which was basically an emosty set of tortillas. Thankfully I wasn't working today, as I would be very late to return after lunch. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to any of my... More
