We had a delightful lunch at the 3rd Corner restaurant. The cuisine is Californian. The service was excellent and the food was great. We'll be back for dinner.

Restaurant is also a retail wine shop, so pick out your wine for dinner and add just a $5 corkage fee. Reasonable priced bottles makes this a good value. Food was very good too! We will be back!

Third Corner makes it easy. They have a great selection of wine and good prices. I highly recommend the mushroom risotto, always perfect!

We enjoyed a delicious supper at 3rd Corner. We enjoyed excellent food, friendly service and an outstanding dessert. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that it's quite pricy. Worth one visit though!
